The Dell Data Protection team is extremely excited to announce that AppAssure 5.4 has been selected as a finalist for the Best of TechEd 2014 award in the Backup and Recovery category!

Your world is built on the data you need to run your business, service your customers, and stay competitive in your industry. AppAssure provides protection across physical, virtual, and cloud environments that will get your business back up and running in 15 minutes or less. AppAssure 5.4 protects even more of your world with improved redundancy, failover and recovery options. Recover data faster and easier with revised recovery point management, Quick Start Guides, and deployment wizards.

AppAssure leverages inline deduplication and compression to eliminate redundant data and optimize backups for WAN replication. With Universal Recovery, AppAssure allows you to restore backups from physical to virtual, virtual to virtual, virtual to physical, or physical to virtual, as well as carry out bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware. With Live Recovery, you are able to leverage near-instant recovery technology for protected virtual machines or servers by accessing the impacted server’s application and data directly from the backup image if there is an outage. Recovery Assure identifies data corruption early so you don’t backup bad blocks by performing automated recovery testing and verification of your Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server backups. Finally, Virtual Standby allows you to continuously export to a virtual machine (Hyper-V, VMware) creating a highly-available, bootable copy of the protected machine, its applications, and its data. AppAssure protects your world, so you can concentrate on your business.

Please join us in congratulating the AppAssure team at booth #1601 during TechEd Houston, May 12th-15th.  And of course, don't forget to vote!
