From the Local Mounts pane, you can view or dismount volumes mounted locally. From the Remote Mounts pane, you can view or dismount volumes mounted using the Local Mount Utility.

For information on dismounting volumes, see Dismounting recovery points.

For information on mounting a recovery point locally, see Mounting a recovery point or Mounting a recovery point volume on a Linux machine, respectively.

[Retention Policy]

The purpose of this section is to provide an introduction and overview of the Rapid Recovery Representational State Transfer (REST) Application Program Interfaces (APIs), their use, and their function.

The Rapid Recovery Web Service APIs are RESTful and let you automate and customize certain functions and tasks within the Rapid Recovery software solution to assist you with meeting your business objectives.

These APIs are accessible from the Downloads page of the Rapid Recovery License Portal.

Topics include:

Intended audience

Rapid Recovery APIs are intended for use by application developers who want to integrate and extend Rapid Recovery in their application, as well as administrators who want to script interactions with the Rapid Recovery Core server.

Working with Rapid Recovery REST APIs

The Rapid Recovery APIs are REST-style APIs, which means that they use HTTP requests to provide access to resources (data entities) through URI paths. Rapid Recovery APIs use standard HTTP methods such as GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE. Because REST APIs are based on open standards, you can use any language or tool that supports HTTP calls.

There are two ways that application developers and administrators can work with Rapid Recovery APIs. They are:

  • Using C# or other .NET languages to directly use Rapid Recovery .NET client DLL files.
  • Communicate directly with the HTTP endpoint to generate your own XML.

The first approach is recommended. The client DLLs are included in the Rapid Recovery SDK. The method for calling Rapid Recovery APIs is consistent with the way you would consume any .NET 4.5X Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service.
