vStandby AIP: add-on module to ActiveImage Protector

Create standby virtual machines of mission critical servers in a VMware ESXi hypervisor for cost effective with standby availability protection.

Create standby virtual machines of all Windows and Linux machines on the network with one single vStandby AIP licence to ensure you can be up and running in no time.

Restore a vStandby virtual machine, including all the changes made while in operation, back to the original physical hardware if needed.

Your physical and virtual machines are replicated directly to an ESXi or Hyper-V host (please specify your preference when ordering), creating dormant standby virtual machines that are ready for instant switchover when the source machine fails.

Choose any boot point you want to use when booting a vStandby machine on a regular VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V hosts. For the free version of ESXi, vStandby will always boot from the latest boot point taken. 

vStandby machines can be boot-tested without interrupting your failover process, ensuring your peace of mind.

Works alongside ActiveImage Protector and can be installed on any machine on the network. Choose which protected VM or physical machines are critical and create standby virtual machines ready to boot in case of disaster.

vStandby supports the paid and free licence versions of VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V. See documentation for complete details.

Standby Virtual Machines (SVM) are automatically updated when incremental files are added to your backup chain. Choose a Point-in-Time to boot in case of disaster. You can even change it afterwards should you have booted the wrong one.

If you need to restore back to your original hardware, vStandby includes a recovery environment to restore your replacement virtual server, including all the changes made, back to the original physical hardware.

Disk space requirements are minimised thanks to NetJapan’s inline P2V technology that can convert from a physical to a virtual machine without a pre-existing backup image.

With vStandby you can regularly test your Business Continuity Plan in minutes, helping you comply with government business continuity regulations.

How can you use vStandby AIP?

Scenario 1: Onsite Instant Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
  • ActiveImage Protector is installed on one of several servers and creates automatic backup files saved on a NAS.
  • vStandby AIP is installed on another machine on the network to create standby virtual machines on VMware ESXi or Hyper-V virtual environment. vStandby AIP automatically converts backup files to VMDK or VHD/VHDX snapshot files and update these virtual disks. vStandby allows you to manage any number of image file sets from an unlimited number of source server or machines.
  • When a disaster strikes, boot the virtual disk at the chosen recovery point and immediately boot the failed server as a VM.
Downtime is minimal!
Scenario 2: Offsite Instant Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
  • ActiveImage Protector is installed on one of several servers and creates automatic backup files saved on a NAS.
  • Use free ImageCenter LE add-on to replicate all image files to the offsite or private cloud destination.
  • Install vStandby AIP on a machine at the remote location to create standby virtual machines on VMware ESXi or Hyper-V virtual environment. vStandby AIP automatically converts backup files to VMDK or VHD/VHDX snapshot files and update these virtual disks. vStandby allows you to manage any number of image file sets from an unlimited number of source server or machines.
  • When a disaster strikes, boot the virtual disk at the chosen recovery point and immediately boot the failed server as a VM from the remote location.
  • Setup users to connect to the new remote virtual server.
Reduce downtime and disaster impact!

Les produits développés au Japan sont de grande qualité et ActiveImage Protector n’échappe pas à la règle! Nous n’avons pas trouvé de solutions avec un meilleur ratio de déduplication/compression ! De même pour la vitesse à laquelle les sauvegardes sont réalisées… et nous avons testé pas mal d’autres solutions ! En bref, nos techniciens l’ont…

In our experience, products developed in Japan are high quality and this is also true with ActiveImage Protector. We could not find a solution with a better deduplication / compression ratio! Also the backup speed is faster then what we have seen before … and we have tested quite a lot of software! Our technicians…

“I’ve been testing NetJapan ActiveImage Protector and I’m pretty impressed with the deduplication functionality. Even when used at the medium (recommended) setting, there was a considerate space saving over Windows Server Backup (WSB). Using a Windows 2012 R2 that included two small VMs we ran some tests against WSB: WSB backed up the host and…

“I had the chance to test the pre-release of ActiveImage Protector 2016 and must say, I am really impressed with the modern dashboard and the many options it provides for running and checking backup jobs. But beyond just looks, it is apparent that NetJapan’s development team worked really hard to deliver something truly new! For…

“We had a CryptoLocker attack and NetJapan backup saved us.”

“One of our customers’s network got attacked by Cryptolocker via the proxy server despite antivirus beeing installed on the proxy server and local PCs. Unfortunately the user who opened the infected file had administrative rights and as a result, all the company relevant data got encrypted. Fortunately, we had installed ActiveImage Protector Server on this…
