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 vCenter, 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 VMware cluster, 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.

Application Aware, Intelligent backup and recovery, Ready-to-roll intelligent application data protection, raises the simplicity bar & provides data mobility.
