As we previously stated, HYCU Protégé’s data migration service is surprisingly flexible. Protégé supports both on-demand migrations and staged migrations. In either case, Protégé maintains a backup copy. The service also allows application owners to create new instances of near production copies on the cloud for testing, development, reporting or for new production instances. All of these services are designed with transferring across the multiple clouds HYCU Protégé supports.

Azure is a major cloud provider, with rough 60% of all businesses leveraging Azure in some form. Expanding to Azure makes perfect sense for HYCU. The company is making HYCU for Azure data protection functionality available free of charge for the following three months. This is their part in helping user deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Highlights of HYCU for Azure include:

  • True as a Service Offering: As opposed to legacy backup solutions that require a separate infrastructure to run in the cloud, HYCU for Azure runs as a native service, available via subscription directly from Azure Marketplace and billed as part of the Azure bill.
  • Extends and Leverages the Power of the Azure Platform: Using native snapshots and integration with Microsoft’s Active Directory, HYCU for Azure is built on native APIs, supports all BLOB storage classes and auto selects the right class of Azure BLOB storage for the policy the customer chooses.
  • Simplified, Impact-free, Enterprise Class Data Protection of VMs/Apps on Azure: Agentless, HYCU for Azure provides flexible backup policies to meet different SLAs as well as 1-click view of protected and unprotected Apps/VMs. Easy to perform granular recovery, HYCU for Azure also leverages its own IP for Change Block Tracking to provide incremental backups forever for extremely efficient storage consumption.
  • 1-click, App Consistent Migration from On-Premises on to Azure and Back: As both application aware and consistent, HYCU provides 1-click migration with no worries about network constraints. Delivered as a true self-service, even for migration and Test/Dev, HYCU for Azure requires zero compute resources on the cloud during migration.
  • 1-click App Consistent DR for Customers Who Want to Use Azure as a DR target: With simplified failover and failback, no limitations with network constraints and no additional compute required on the cloud, HYCU for Azure is an extremely efficient and cost-efficient DR service for users that need that capability.
