What it is
Application-aware Snapshot Agents from FalconStor Software provide complete data protection for active databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, and DB2, and messaging applications such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes. These agents work with FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector™ (CDP) and FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) to ensure that snapshots are taken with full transactional integrity. Transactional integrity means that the database copy can be brought online without going through any lengthy database rebuild processes or file system checks, saving hours of valuable recovery time in the event of a disaster.
What you get
Complete data and transactional integrity is attained through a robust and automated process that safely and reliably takes snapshots of databases for point-in-time granularity and disaster recovery (DR). The agents work seamlessly with the FalconStor Replication option and FalconStor TimeMark® technology to allow instant recovery to any point in time without requiring scripting. Snapshot Agents also utilize a group snapshot feature to ensure transactional integrity of databases across multiple storage volumes.
