With the Application Protection Suite, you can automate application-consistent copies with user roles, enabling self-service copy management. The suite simplifies the management of EMC point-in-time replica technologies and coordinates the user's entire replication process - from discovery and configuration to the management of multiple disk-based replicas. Replicas can be repurposed for backup acceleration and restoration of table spaces and file systems, or to simplify and automate data refreshes for testing and reporting. Users can put the right data in the right place at the right time - on-demand or based on schedules and policies that they define. This suite provides intelligent replication by integrating with Microsoft VSS/VDI to create application consistent copies of Microsoft Exchange, SQL and SharePoint for recovery, backup acceleration, and repurposing. Application consistency assures that you will be able to recover and restart the application from the copy in the event of a service interruption.
