Application Aware Disaster Recovery

Peer Point supports backing up data from several applications like Exchange, MS SQL, SharePoint Servers, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL databases and cPanel Server. On top of this, Peer Point also support user plugins where scripts could be written to first extract the data from the applications to be backed up and then automatically backing up that data.

Exchange Server Backup

Peer Point supports backing up all versions of Exchange server – Exchange 2010, 2007, 2003 and 2000. Peer Point efficiently backs up Exchange server using Exchange Server APIs without impacting the live server. Peer Point supports backup of storage groups in entirety, as well as individual databases within the storage groups. Backing up databases individually provides greater storage management flexibility. For example, critical databases might be backed up more frequently.

Peer Point can run differential and incremental log backup of Exchange Server. Peer Point also supports Synthetic Full Backup where complete full [backup] dump of the selected databases and all necessary log files is done but only the changed data with respect to the previous full backup /synthetic full backup is uploaded to the backup server. This is useful to keep the number incremental log files under limit and yet not having to run full backups frequently.

Exchange Mailbox Backup and Mail Level Restore

Peer Point can back up users' mailboxes from an Exchange Sever. It can backup at a folder level. You can backup all the data of a particular user (mailbox) or you can backup just a folder (like for example the inbox of an user) or you could backup a sub-folder (like for example, a sub-folder in the inbox).

Peer Point can also restore individual emails into the Exchange server.

SQL Server Backup

Peer Point supports backup of Microsoft SQL servers. Peer Point uses VDI API to backup database(s). Peer Point supports Full, Differential and Transaction Log backups. Full backup backs up the entire database. Differential backup backs up only modified extents since the previous full backup. And Transaction log backup backs up the active portion and truncates the inactive portion of the transaction log.

cPanel Server Backup and granular domain level restore

Peer Point installed in a cPanel Server can backup the websites (domains) on a shared web hosting managed by cPanel control panel. Peer Point backs up the entire home directory, MySQL databases, Email Forwarder settings, Email Filter settings and offers a fine granular restore of the cPanel accounts. You can also recover all the accounts in a single click in case of server crash or recover specific accounts.

SharePoint Server Backup

Peer Point supports site-collection level backup of SharePoint versions SPS2003/WSS2.0, MOSS2007/WSS3.0 and MS SharePoint 2010. Peer Point uses SharePoint server APIs to backup SharePoint site-collections. Peer Point uploads just the changed data during the incremental backups.

Oracle backup

MySQL backup

Peer Point supports backup of MySQL databases. Peer Point supports Full and Incremental MySQL database backups while data is online and accessible and yet the data backed up is always consistent. Full backup type backs up the entire MySQL database. Incremental backup type backs up only modified extents since the previous Full backup.

PostgreSQL Backup

Peer Point supports backup of PostgreSQL databases using the internal PostgreSQLDump utility (pg_dump) available in the local machine. Peer Point supports Full and Incremental PosgreSQL database backups while data is online and accessible.


Backup your entire virtual servers from the host. We VMware’s APIs to backup virtual machines (VMs) running on ESX and ESXi Servers. A single installation of Peer Point client can backup VMs running on multiple ESX/ESXi servers. Peer Point client can also connect to vCenter Server to backup all the VMs that the vCenter server manages. Peer Point can directly backup the VMs from the source to the backup server without having to first dump the data locally in a temporary storage in Peer Point client machine. Peer Point supports incremental backup of VMware VMs.

ESX 3.0, ESX 3.5, ESXi 3.5, ESX 4.x and ESXi 5.x and VMware Server 2.0 Virtual Machines are supported.

Hyper V

Hyper-V Host Server can backup the VMs running on it. Peer Point uses Microsoft VSS to make sure the VMs are in a consistent state before backing up.Peer Point backs up only the changed data in the VMs during incremental backup. Peer Point can backup the data directly to the remote backup server without requiring a temporary storage space in the Hyper-V server that is backed up.
