EVault 7 Updates Cloud Backup and Recovery Service
EVault released the latest version of its cloud-based backup and recovery service. The latest version, EVault 7, provides a more resilient architecture with an update to its replication and more deployment options. The company, owned by Seagate (NASDAQ: STX), also works closely with cloud-connected service providers and MSPs.
According to EVAult, version 7 has up to 100 percent faster VMware-based backups than the previous version. The latest version is also optimized for distributed environments. As part of the update, EVault is launching a a new management interface that the company says is built around the “social business.”
“With EVault 7, our customers are seeing the future shape of data protection, said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager of EVault, in a prepared statement. “Our backup and recovery platform is designed for a cloud-connected world — and now it’s faster, smarter and more resilient than ever. We’ve also added a management interface built on a social platform, so customers can stay on top of their data protection operations and collaborate in real-time with colleagues, peers and the EVault team.”
One of the key selling points to the new version is a more resilient architecture and tailored deployment, according to the company. With geographically-distributed replicas in a private cloud or a service provider cloud, EVault 7 can provide an on-site cache of data for fast, local recoveries — particularly with the EVault Express Recovery Appliance: Virtual Edition, which provides LAN-speed backup and recovery.
According to EVault, the virtual appliance fits within existing environments, lowering TCO and eliminating the need for additional capital investments.
The selling point for channel partners in this new version is smarter and faster performance in a distributed environment. Updates that support VMware also include faster granular restores of files and folders from a single virtual machine. The company stated it doubles the backup and recovery features of the previous version of EVault.
EVault will also make available mailbox and message-level restores with Microsoft Exchange by the end of the calendar year.
