Local protection

Local backups are supported with application-consistent backups (for all instances running with ThinkAgile CP guest tools) on a per-application basis.

Backups are maintained locally; they are compressed and deduplicated to reduce storage requirements. Backups are immutable for compliance purposes; however, you can clone the backups and attach the clones to virtual machines (VMs) as mountable file systems. The instant clone-and-attach capability allows for fast and space-efficient restoration and sharing of data without having to create multiple copies.
