Metallic™ Core Backup & Recovery

The essentials: VM, file server, SQL backup

A strong foundation requires the fundamentals — from data protection for VMware and Hyper-V to Microsoft SQL database backup.

Watch how easy it is to configure VMware backups and the rest of your core data.

Innovating for tomorrow’s challenges

Total coverage

Protect comprehensively with physical and virtual servers on-premises (for Linux and Windows), VMware, Hyper-V and in-cloud virtual machines, integrated application support for MS SQL 2008-2017, and object storage. Scales as you need to add new users, protect more data, and build or adapt infrastructure.

Reliable efficiency

Make the most of your time and resources with smart scheduling, compression, and deduplication. Take advantage of preconfigured and recommended plans that bake in best practices — so you can leverage others’ lessons for your own benefit.

Fast & enduring

Time is of the essence with rapid recovery from deletion, corruption, or attack, along with speed-enabled local copies and outage-covering cloud copies. Keep multiple recovery points and retain data for as long as you need.

It’s SaaS … Plus

You value flexibility. SaaS Plus means you have the option to get up and running quickly on Metallic cloud storage, or use your own storage – on prem or in the cloud. You’ll have the unique ability to enjoy all the benefits of SaaS, but still keep an active local copy of your data for the fastest recovery.
