HYCU, INC. Announces Patent for Automated Application Awareness for Next-Generation Virtual Infrastructures

Latest Innovation Makes HYCU Data Protection for Nutanix a Must-Have for Enterprise Cloud Customers

BOSTON, June 12, 2018 – HYCU, Inc., a pioneering enterprise software company specializing in data backup, recovery and monitoring for hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI), today announced it has been issued a patent No. 9,998,339 for “application awareness for virtual infrastructure environments.”

For many organizations, applications have become the most important focus for IT and what drives their businesses. With the latest HYCU innovation, application awareness is being brought to center stage in the data protection process and not left as an afterthought which is the case with many legacy backup tools. HYCU Data Protection for Nutanix was uniquely designed to see through virtual machines to discover where every application is running and when a backup is initiated. This provides enhanced automation, with no human involvement required, to do the right procedure to backup and restore an application with the right application context. When applied to HCI, this makes HYCU for Nutanix ideally suited to backup and recover data and applications for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud customers.

Simplicity has become the mission of almost every CIO and data center professional today. At its core, this means automating complex data protection workflows especially around critical resources like business applications. Legacy backup concepts that are only VM-centric and typically require major effort to deploy, configure and manage will be pushed aside,” said Goran Garevski, VP Engineering at HYCU. “Our newest innovation has enabled us to provide natural and intuitive app-centric consumption of data protection functionality resulting in the highest level of efficiency and protection of what truly matters most – the business application.
