|Backup and Recovery Management||Intelligent backups and restores utilizing a revolutionary progressive incremental backup and restore strategy, where only new and used files are backed up||Centralized protection based on smart-move and smart-store technology leading to faster backups and restores with less network and storage resources needed|
|Virtualized Storage Management||Policy-based management of file backup and archiving within virtual and associated pools, rather than tethered to specific media||Transparent data movement unhindered by long-term media restrictions, separating data and media management to their respective goals and objectives|
|Archive Management||Managed archives as a separate function from backup retention policies||Ability to easily protect and manage documents that need to be kept for a certain period of time|
|Advanced Data Reduction||Combines progressive-incremental backup, source and target data deduplication, compression and tape management to provide best-in-class data reduction||Reduces the costs of data storage, environmental requirements, and administration|
