High Performance Backup
Peer Point offers a cross-platform and high performance backup solution that protects your system, data, files and applications in both physical and virtual environments – all managed through a single pane of glass.
UK Backup Location
Your data stays in the UK. Our cloud systems are hosted on our equipment in secure locations over the UK. So you can rest assured that your backup will never leave the UK border to other systems.
Single solution for all types of backups
Peer Point can be your single solution for all your backup needs – may it be backing up Disk Images, your Virtual Machines, Databases, Applications or files. There are no additional plug-ins or add-ons to install. It all just works out of the box.
Up To 448-bit AES encryption
Our software offer encryption before the data is even transmitted. Only the person's your share the password with can restore the data everyone else including ourselves cannot. This make's this safe even for banking and governmental users.
Bare Metal Backup and Restore (BMR) with P2V
Peer Point’s BMR capabilities provide you the complete solution to efficiently do a point in time restore of the entire machine. Peer Point supports image backup of specific volumes or entire disk. The backup image (VHD) can also be instantaneously booted up as a Hyper-V virtual machine. Peer Point also supports conversion of the backup image into a VMware Virtual image (VMDK).
Backs up changed blocks alone
Peer Point’s Intelli-Delta technology makes sure that only changed blocks of the modified files are backed up during incremental backups.
Continue where it left off
Within a file backup, Peer Point’s keeps track at the block level of data that has been already uploaded. In case of an interruption in the connectivity to the backup server, Peer Point automatically resumes its backup exactly from where it left off once the connectivity to the backup server is established.
Efficient file tracking
Peer Point uses Windows Directory Monitoring Service to keep track of the files that have been newly added or modified since the last backup. During the next incremental backup, it just reads these files and not the entire disk to identify what has to be backed up.
Backup open files
Peer Point uses Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to create a snapshot of files before backing up. Peer Point can therefore even backup files that are open by other applications. Also using the VSS service, Peer Point ensures that the files are in consistent state during backup.
On-the-fly compression and encryption
Peer Point’s file backup doesn't copy the files to another location before backing up. Peer Point reads the files, identifies the changes blocks, compresses and encrypts the data on the fly making it very efficient.
No limit on the size of the file it can backup
Since Peer Point reads the file and backs up directly to the backup server without first dumping it to another location, there is absolutely no restriction on the size of the file that it can backup,even when compression and encryption are enabled.
Automated multiple backup scheduling
Peer Point supports weekly, daily, hourly and continuous automatic scheduling of backups. The backup jobs can be configured to run one after the other or multiple jobs can be scheduled to run at the same time.
Backup Seeding for large backup sets
When backup set is large and network bandwidth is limited, it could take days for the initial backup to complete. In such cases, backups can be run to a locally attached disk, the disk can then be shipped to the site where the backup server is located and the data can be imported from the disk into the backup server.
Synthetic Full Backups
Over a period of time, the amount of content that has changed in a file since its initial full backup could grow, making the incremental backups larger and larger. Peer Point can automatically limit the size of incremental by running a synthetic full backup of the file based on a user set limit. Thereafter, the incremental of the file will be only the changed data with respect to the last synthetic full and not with respect to the initial full backup of the file.
Flexible backup retention policies
Peer Point retention policies for the backup data can be configured based on the number of versions and based on the age of the version files. Separate retention policies can be set for delete files and folders.
Backup network and NAS drives
Peer Point can backup files from any external drives – mapped network drives, NAS drives etc. As long as the user is able to access the files from any of these sources, Peer Point will also be able to back them up.
Backup Virtual Machines
Peer Point can be installed in virtual machines running any of the supported OSes (Windows, Linux, Mac, Solaris, FreeBSD) to back up the data from the virtual machines. Peer Point can also backup the entire virtual machine in VMware, Hyper-V and Xen* systems.
Inbuilt Integrity Check
Peer Point’s data integrity check makes sure that the data is stored exactly as it left the source machine that is backed up. If the integrity check fails due to data corruption during the transfer of data, Peer Point makes sure the data is retransmitted.
