Backup Express Advanced Recovery is one of the few backup products to offer the following groundbreaking features for many Linux versions. These features enable users to meet the most stringent RTOs and RPOs with minimal impact on their Linux source servers and networks, while dramatically saving on storage investments.

— Backups stored as virtual-volume images on disk storage of any kind. — Very fast data and application access from virtual-volume images for any point-in-time snapshot. A virtual image can be mapped as a read-writable LUN in minutes and made accessible to the application for full availability. — Block Level Incremental (BLI) backup technology, which identifies and copies only the changed blocks of changed files, minimizing storage and CPU needs, reducing application server impact, performing data reduction at the source, and eliminating protracted backup window requirements. — Bare metal recovery in minutes, including operating system, settings, patches, and applications — without the need for special disaster recovery backups. This allows an enterprise to be up and running with little or no down-time after a crash or data loss. — Near-instant read/write access to Oracle applications — including Oracle cloning — at any chosen recovery point, so that business can go on as usual.

"Linux has grown to be a substantial part of our user community," said Dan Regan, senior vice president of Syncsort. "Linux users, like everyone else, are entitled to the finest data and application protection available. With Syncsort's latest product update, Linux users are assured they'll be able to recover from a failure right away and continue to do business."
