We primarily use the solution for disaster recovery purposes. We replicate from one site to another from our environment.

I'm a pre-sales engineer, so I'm basically supporting our partner. We're an IT distributor. There are many inquiries these days looking for backup solutions for Linux, so we made it for Linux. This tool already uses Linux, instead of a backup administrator needing manual workloads to backup the Linux machine. You can deploy this agent remotely, from a backup server. You just have to enable flash and pull and check the compatibility of Linux with big machines and you can remotely deploy it and start backing up in no time. Our backup is pretty plain and simple. We can back up the entire machine so that you can be able to restore from bare metal in case of loss of the entire machine. You have the option also to restore single files, including backup of the Oracle database. It supports a wide range of Linux distributions but because Linux is an entire world on its own, with many distributions and cable versions, there will always be some Linux distribution with kernel versions that are not supported. However, there is a big, diverse sets of Linux kernel versions that are supported. I used both deployment models, the stand-alone mode model and the one deployed from the backup server.

Agent is installed to our VMs virtualized with Oracle VM virtual machines and backup them to our NAS storage over the LAN. This is managed by VBR which was installed for our VMware VMs
