Data Protection




  • Automated, 100 percent application-focus reduces business risks.

With a patent-pending Application-Awareness technologySM, HYCU for Nutanix is the industry’s only automated application discovery solution that provides newfound visibility into VMs, pinpointing where each application is running. HYCU also creates application specific recovery workflows. IT delivers application aware one-click backup and automated self-service portal for business users to easily manage their own data.


  • Three minutes to deploy, two minutes to recover.

There is little to no learning curve for IT administrators since the usability and terminology aligns with Nutanix technology. HYCU takes four minutes of ramp-up learning, three minutes to deploy and two minutes to recover identified data. Because HYCU, an API-driven solution, is tightly integrated with Nutanix, HYCU provides an automated application recovery of workflows/tasks that takes minutes to implement (compared to days that
current data protection solutions take).


  • Zero-extra licensing & hardware

HYCU is an integrated package that runs as a service right on your Nutanix and unlike the traditional legacy backup solutions, there are no hidden additional Windows Server, Database and anti-virus licensing costs. And there are no professional services required. With HYCU, a pure software solution, you don’t need separate infrastructure to run your backup software and don’t require separate infrastructure for fast recovery.


  • Simple and intelligent

It’s true, the beauty of a hyperconverged infrastructure is its simplicity and allin-one solution. Purpose-built for Nutanix, HYCU provides data protection and recovery without the complexity. At the same time, it’s a powerful solution that does what you need it to do to meet your recovery point and recovery time objectives.
