Backup & Disaster Recovery Platform
More powerful & intelligent data preservation for disaster recovery.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Continuous Data Protection (CDP) easily and flexibly prevents data loss and downtime with continuous or scheduled point-in-time backup and one-touch restore featuring granular policy enforcement and data de-duplication. CDP protects local and remote Windows®, Mac OS®, and Linux® servers, desktops and laptops. Multiple disaster recovery options include Site-to-Site Backup, Offsite Backup, Local Archiving and Universal System Recovery.
One-touch self-directed file restore.
Users can restore lost or deleted files instantly without compromising privacy or security, thereby reducing IT overhead while maximizing user satisfaction and productivity.
Multiple platform support.
The CDP v6 agent software supports mixed-platform environments, including Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
Hierarchically executed backup rules enable a sustainable data reduction strategy that intelligently identifies, captures and preserves pertinent business information. Data storage is optimized and backup speeds increased while eliminating the costly storage of irrelevant or outdated information.
Agent-based data de-duplication.
CDP optimizes storage efficiency by handling more data with less disk space and enhances bandwidth efficiency by sending less traffic over the network. This lets IT drastically shorten backup windows, minimize bandwidth utilization, improve performance and reduce operational costs.
Microsoft application support.
CDP v6 supports the most popular Microsoft® business and client applications, including SQL®, Exchange, SharePoint®, Active Directory® and Small Business Server®.
Windows Installer support.
With Windows Installer support, administrators can install agents remotely to all devices in an Active Directory network. Once installed, agents can discover and selectively connect to any available CDP device broadcasting on the same domain, and backup can occur almost instantly.
Dell SonicWALL Recovery Manager for Microsoft Exchange® lets administrators search, compare and restore individual, criteria-specific items—including single messages, multiple mailboxes and public folders—from un-mounted .edb files, without setting up a dedicated recovery server.
Dell SonicWALL's management and reporting solutions such as the Dell SonicWALL Global Management System and Dell SonicWALL Analyzer provide a comprehensive architecture for centrally creating and managing policy settings for CDP appliances, logging and analyzing backup activity and delivering intuitive reports.
Backup revision control.
Revision-based restores preserve data, including version history, in a consistent and accurate state, from the time of data creation to the time it is no longer needed.
With agent push, administrators can easily upgrade the Continuous Data Protection (CDP) agent remotely.
Automatic policy provisioning.
Administrators can automatically assign a specific backup policy to new agents connecting to the CDP appliance for the first time.
Mounted drive support.
CDP can back up data residing on mounted devices such as USB-attached drives and network-mapped drives for Apple® and Linux® platforms.
User permissions management.
Administrators can enable or disable user privilege to create or edit agent-level policy, delete or restore files, or trim versions in compliance with corporate data-security policy.
Disaster Recovery Services and Software.
Site-to-site data backup.
CDP v6 automatically utilizes AES 256-bit encryption to transmit and store data on other CDP appliances at remote sites. If the local CDP appliance is no longer viable, IT administrators can easily recover the latest version of data through the replacement CDP appliance’s Web interface.
Offsite data backup.
CDP v6 can also automatically encrypt, transmit to and store data at the Dell SonicWALL Data Backup Center. If the local CDP appliance is no longer viable, IT administrators can easily recover the latest version of data through the replacement CDP appliance’s Web interface.
For an added layer of disaster protection, IT can archive the latest version of business-critical data on an attached NTFS formatted USB drive and physically transport it to a secure offsite location. Designed to help organizations meet regulatory compliance, local archiving enables administrators to browse archives and restore individual files.
Universal system recovery.
CDP Universal System Recovery software creates an exact image of an entire server or workstation, including operating system files, programs, databases and settings. This gives administrators a fast and easy way to recover full systems to dissimilar hardware or virtual environments.
