Syncsort Backup Express is an enterprise-level data protection solution that backs up and restores data and applications for a variety of operating systems. It has data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity planning capabilities. [#1| [1] Backup Express supports many database applications, including Oracle, SQL, and Exchange. Users can map to and use a backed up version of the database if something goes wrong with the primary version. Backup Express is managed from a single console and catalog. This allows for centralized control of both tape-based and disk-based data protection jobs across heterogeneous operating systems.

Supported platforms

Data can be backed up from any of the following platforms: Windows, UNIX, Linux, NetWare, OES, OES2, Mac, plus VMware and mixed networks.

Supported applications

According to the Backup Express Interface Guide, Backup Express contains interfaces to the following application software and database management systems (DBMS): DB2, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, Novell Groupwise, Oracle, SAP, SharePoint, SQL-BackTrack, SQL Server, and Sybase. For Oracle, Backup Express provides cloning capabilities. For Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and Oracle, Backup Express provides read/write access to recovery points.

Storage media

Backup Express uses the following data storage devices: tape, tape library (jukebox), virtual tape library (VTL), disk (local, NetApp, EMC, HP, Data Domain, others), disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T).

tructure

A Backup Express setup has 3 types of components:
;Master Server: Controls all backup management tasks, catalog, scheduling, job execution, and distributed processing.;Device Server/Advanced Server: Handles backup media – either tape or disk. ;Client Node: Any computer in a Backup Express Enterprise from which data is backed up is considered a Backup Express client node.

Product Capabilities

The following are among the capabilities of Backup Express 3.0:

*Fast-image backup for large volumes of small files.
*Block-level, incremental backup to disk over the WAN, which provides source-side data reduction.
*Virtual full backup, which, combined with block-level incrementals, reduces the amount of data that needs to be transferred.
*A single-backup image repurposed to protect/recover files, servers and applications, including VMware environments.
*Focused solutions for NetApp, Novell and remote offices.
*Bare metal recovery, which restores operating system, settings, patches and applications software in the event of server failure or corruption.
*Read/write mapping to SQL, Exchange, and Oracle recovery points.
*Fast data recovery and application access from virtual-volume images on disk storage.
