Rapid Recovery overview and system requirements

This section includes an introduction to Rapid Recovery and where you can find its system requirements.

Introduction to Rapid Recovery

Rapid Recovery is a backup, replication, and recovery solution that offers near-zero recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives. Rapid Recovery offers data protection, disaster recovery, data migration and data management. You have the flexibility of performing bare-metal restore (to similar or dissimilar hardware), and you can restore backups to physical or virtual machines, regardless of origin. Rapid Recovery can also archive to the cloud, to a DL series backup and recovery appliance, or to a supported system of your choice. With Rapid Recovery, you can replicate to one or more targets for added redundancy and security.

Rapid Recovery offers:

Flexibility. You can perform universal recovery to multiple platforms, including restoring from physical to virtual, virtual to physical, virtual to virtual, and physical to physical.
Cloud integration. You can export a VM, archive and replicate to the cloud, and perform bare metal restore from archives in the cloud. Compatible cloud services include Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), any OpenStack-based provider (including Rackspace), and Google Cloud. US government-specific platforms include AWS GovCloud (US) and Azure Government.
Intelligent deduplication. You can reduce storage requirements by storing data once, and referencing it thereafter (once per repository or encryption domain).
Instant recovery. Our Live Recovery feature allows you to access critical data first, while remaining restore operations complete in parallel.
File-level recovery. You can recover data at the file level on-premises, from a remote location, or from the cloud.
File-level search. Using criteria you specify, you can search a range of recovery points for one or more files. From the search results, you can then select and restore the files you want to the local Core machine directly from the Core Console.
Virtual support. Rapid Recovery supports one-time virtual export, letting you generate a bootable VM from a recovery point; and virtual standby, in which the bootable VM you generate is continually updated after each backup. You can even perform virtual export to Microsoft Hyper-V cluster-shared volumes.
Rapid Snap for Virtual support. Enhanced support for virtualization includes agentless protection for vCenter/ESXi VMs and for Hyper-V VMs. Rapid Snap for Virtual includes protection and autodiscovery for VMware ESXi 5.5 and higher with no agent software installed. Host-based protection supports installing Rapid Recovery Agent on a Microsoft Hyper-V host only, letting you agentlessly protect all its guest VMs.
Application support. Rapid Recovery Agent is built with application support for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and Oracle. When you protect these application servers in your Core, the backup snapshots are automatically application-aware; open transactions and rolling transaction logs are completed and caches are flushed to disk before creating snapshots. Specific application features are supported, including SQL attachability (for SQL Server) and database integrity DBVERIFY checks (for Oracle). Application awareness also extends to agentless protection for SQL Server and Exchange Server.
