SAN Storage Snapshots

Reduce the impact of backup processes on your infrastructure by offloading VMware VM backup snapshots to SAN storage. This creates an additional layer of redundancy for you to recover from in case your primary system is compromised.

Remote and Automated Recovery

Reduce RTOs of remote sites and systems by accessing bootable media and restoring bare-metal servers remotely via wide-area networks (WAN). Automate and orchestrate the recovery by customizing bootable media with scripting.


Tape Drives, Autoloaders and Tape Libraries

Satisfy regulatory requirements and disaster recovery needs by storing backups on local or central tape devices with support for media management, tape rotation and retention rules.

Active Protection from Ransomware

Proactively prevent the need to recover and protect data and systems from ransomware attacks by detecting, blocking, and reversing suspicious changes to data, backup files and backup agent.

Variable Block-Size Deduplication

Reduce disk storage utilization and network bandwidth requirements and protect more systems with efficient, high performance in-line and global deduplication.

With data deduplication enterprises can acquire substantial and recurring impact on the cost and manageability of data growth. With storage capacity reduction, enterprises will enjoy more cost reductions in areas including storage licensing, storage management, power, cooling and data center floor space. Data deduplication makes it much more affordable, analyze, manage and house data.

With StoneFly’s backup appliances you can acquire Data deduplication Engine Level 1 – Source (Standard) and Data Deduplication Engine Level 2 – Hardware – Assisted/Target (Optional).

Blockchain Technology for Maximum Data Security

Improve regulatory compliance, establish validity of recovery, and ensure the authenticity and integrity of backups with blockchain.

Off-Host Operations

Reduce production machine loads by performing select activities – such as backup staging (moving), replication (copying), validation and retention (cleanup) – on a different system.

Admin Roles

Enable IT to protect remote office, branch offices, and departments with the ability to manage, delegate, and establish roles for multiple administrators.



Customizable Dashboards and Reporting

Increase infrastructure resiliency and quickly resolve issues with customizable dashboards. Get quick insights into your infrastructure and regular, customizable reports so you can focus on the exceptions in your environment.

Automated Physical Server(s) Backup Images

The backup engine automatically creates backup images of physical servers based on flexible user-defined policies. These images can be restored (bare metal recovery) to the same hardware or to dissimilar hardware to build a new server. These images can also be mounted as a drive to retrieve an earlier copy of a specific file, folder etc.

Automated Backup Server Conversion to Virtual Machines (VMs)

Every backup server is automatically converted into Virtual Machines (VMs). These VMs can be spun up quickly and hosted on the DR365 appliance. This feature ensures business continuity for production environments and makes the backup appliance an essential part of every reliable and robust disaster recovery plan.

Support for Multiple Restore Operations

The backup appliances support P2P (Physical to Physical), P2V (Physical to Virtual), V2P (Virtual to Physical), V2V (Virtual to Virtual) operations including restoring physical machines to completely different hardware and restoring Virtual Machines to a completely different hypervisor.

Virtual SAN appliance – Simplified Virtual Storage or Server Creation

StoneFly’s DR365 appliance includes a Virtual SAN appliance (StoneFly Storage Controller Virtual Machine SCVM), a virtual enterprise backup engine. This enables enterprises to create additional virtual storage or servers as needed. StoneFly’s backup appliances are flexible and replace the conventional “fixed hardware model”.

Virtualized Operating System

StoneFly DR365 backup appliance also enables you to migrate your existing Windows and Linux physical servers into Virtual Machines (VMs) running directly on the backup appliance. This greatly reduces your hardware footprint and allows you to run many more applications on much less hardware.

The use of virtualized operating systems allows complete hardware utilization and considerable reduction in power and cooling costs. You can effectively reduce the CapEx and OpEx of your datacenter by one-third by effectively leveraging the DR365 – backup and disaster recovery appliance.

Independent Back-end Enterprise Storage

StoneFly DR365 backup appliance can also be used for independent back-end enterprise storage (iSCSI, optional Fibre Channel, optional NAS) for your physical and Virtual Machines. The back-end storage provisioned by the backup appliance delivers all of StoneFly’s enterprise level data services such as snapshots, read-write snapshot volumes, thin provisioning, synchronous replication, optional hardware assisted data deduplication and more.

Multiple Backup Destinations

StoneFly’s backup appliances facilitate you to store your backups in up to five different locations, locally and in the cloud. You can combine local disks, attached storage, tape, network storage, public and private locations to minimize your storage costs and provide multiple recovery options in the case of disaster.

Having multiple backup destinations adds redundancy and recoverability, also facilitating efficient backup and disaster recovery plans.

Clustered SQL Support

Protect your entire infrastructure by backing up SQL server clusters from passive nodes by default or by choosing active/specific node to perform the backup. This improves the availability of the physical server hardware, operating system, and SQL server instances. If any of these fail, the SQL server instance fails over and continues operating, delivering business continuity.

Centralized Backup and Recovery Solution

In addition to the Virtual Machines (VMs) running directly on the DR365 appliance, the appliance can backup any of your physical workstations, servers and their attached storage devices. Bare-metal image backups of physical servers can be instantly recovered on the DR365 and run as Virtual Machines while you repair the physical server or workstation (Physical to Virtual – P2V)

Granular and File Level Backups

With StoneFly’s enterprise backup solution you can selectively backup specific files and folders or even network shares. By enabling selection between specific files, the backup appliance facilitates customization, efficient storage and effective bandwidth usage. This ability of the backup appliance also delivers reduced costs due to efficient usage of storage space and bandwidth.
