What is "chain-free" backup, anyway?

How to explain chain-free backup to your customers

  • Traditional chain backups can break and become corrupted.
  • With chain-free backups, every recovery point is independent.
  • Bad data blocks are isolated, keeping previous backups safe and usable.
  • Our chain-free backups = unlimited retention with near-instant recovery.

Virtual Office: Tips and tricks

Remember to turn off the lights (and your tests) when you leave

If you are conducting tests in your Virtual Office, please remember to shut down the process once you have completed the analysis.

It is easy to accidentally leave a test running, so remind your technicians to revisit the test and shut down unneeded virtual machines.

Please open a Support ticket if you have questions about efficient Virtual Office testing.
