ActiveImage Protector

IT Pro Edition: The IT Technicians' toolbox

Just run the exe file from the network shared folder, then begin taking live image backups. 
The Creator in the ActiveImage Protector IT Pro Edition is supported by a single executable file (exe) that can be used from a network shared folder performs hot image backups of networked machines. This provides the means to perform live backups of systems not physically equipped with media or USB drives, or prohibited by company policy.

No need to shut down systems or applications to make a backup! Create an exact point in time backup of your entire machine, including the OS, applications, Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and data files, while the machine is active and running using Microsoftʼs advanced VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) technology to ensure ultra-reliable backups.

Backup and restore entire systems to new or dissimilar hardware using the Architecture Intelligent Restore (A.I.R). Retrieve files and folders, virtualise from physical environments or migrate to physical hardware: P2P, P2V, V2V & V2P.

The Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) goes beyond simple compression. By excluding redundant blocks of data, backup images are much smaller in size, recuding storage demands. It works during the backup process (not post-backup) and has very limited impact on backup and restore time!

Unique licence allowing an IT expert to backup, restore, migrate and virtualise an unlimited number of systems for one year. Valid for desktop and server machines on physical and virtual environments!

ActiveImage Protector IT Pro Edition can be used on CD, DVD, USB and as an ISO file on the network.

ActiveImage Protector IT Pro Edition includes ImageBoot to test backup files in an instant and boot them in a virtual machine from Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware or Oracle VirtualBox environments.

Can also be used to create test environments.

ToggleProtect your work by backing up any system before operation. This way, if an application or software update causes conflict with the system, or if a hardware/power failure happens, you are assured the system can be restored to the state it was before the update was introduced or the technical operation was conducted.

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…
