It centralizes your data

What is our primary use case?

Storage-based snapshots without an operational or management overhead, which is usually the case with any backup software.

Pros and Cons

  • "You never have to worry about maintaining millions of files stored across several thousands of virtual machines."
  • "It centralizes your data."
  • "You never have to worry about protecting your virtual machines."
  • "If your data is more dynamic and changes frequently, you need more granular retention levels and need to save it for a longer duration, then this becomes a real challenge."
