11 DASH Copy – Copy Incremental Blocks Description AuxCopy just got a lot smarter. Deduped copies can now be created faster while minimizing transfer and processing by using the new Dedupe Accelerated Streaming Hash (DASH) method. Benefits  Resiliency: Bandwidth throttle, job based confirmation, robust network options, HTTP/S security, restart-ability, multi- streaming, and reporting  Low Impact: No rehydration, fast asynchronous copy movement of just the changed blocks to the new copy (DDB)  Performance: On fast networks, read, compare and move (no rehashing-LAN mode) between any MA-OS, or switch to cache mode for WAN-mode (minimizing network lookups)  Full Copy Mgmt Options: Independent copy retention, selective rules, data verification, job aging flags, “Move just the changed blocks between any MA/copy” DDB-3 DC Copy 2 DR Copy 3 Retain 15days DDB-2 Remote Copy 1 DDB-1 Retain 5 days Retain 30 days W/L/U

23 Licensing Flexibility Manage your environment, not your licenses Description Capacity Based licensing (CLA) allows unlimited deployment of agents. Restore-only lightweight agents consume no capacity nor add workload. Benefits  License for Production Data Size : Enables all backup, archive, replication and reporting  Unlimited agents  Dashboard view to measure usage  Trending for future capacity planning  Restore only mode for direct restore into VMs : No workload, no license. “Simple. Lightweight agents inside VM have no workload”

24 Summary  Backup 100’s of VMs in a matter of minutes  Scale seamlessly to protect 1000s of VMs  Integrated granular file-level recovery  Auto-discovery & protection policies  Integrated SRM capabilities  Simplified licensing – capacity based Simpana ® Software completely modernizes data management and protection for virtual server environments.
