PlateSpin Protect


Economical disaster recovery


Integration with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager

Maximize vCenter Site Recovery Manager investment by using PlateSpin® Protect 11 to add protection for all your physical systems, in addition to VMware virtual machines.

Whole-workload replication

PlateSpin Protect enables data centers to protect server workloads (operating systems, applications, and data) within a single bootable recovery environment. Whole-workload protection allows you to avoid hassles of manual system rebuilding and data restore.


Disaster recovery testing in a single click

Leverage virtualization for easy, one-click testing. Quickly create snapshot duplicates of the recovery archives and boot them into safe sandbox test networks. PlateSpin Protect provides an easy, fast – and more importantly, safe – testing mechanism.

Rapid, one-click failover

In the event of a disaster, recovery time is just a matter of powering on the virtual standby workload. Upon receiving a failure alert, you can rapidly recover workloads with a single mouse click. Disaster recovery has never been faster or easier.

Low-risk protection


Easy test failover

One-click test failover allows you to rapidly test the integrity of server workload replication. With a mouse click, you can take a virtual snapshot of the recovery workload, power it on within a private internal network, and quickly validate the recovery plan.

Efficient server workload protection over the WAN

For enterprises with off-site disaster recovery needs, PlateSpin Protect provides efficient workload transfer over wide area networks.


Failback flexibility

Leveraging multi-platform Workload Portability technology, PlateSpin Protect provides flexible restore options. Workload failback can be rapidly executed to any physical or virtual host regardless of manufacturer, make, or model.

Broad platform support

PlateSpin Protect enables streamlined disaster recovery for mixed data center environments, with support for protection of most major versions of the Microsoft Windows, SUSE® Linux Enterprise, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems.

Easy management


Recover with the click of mouse

Virtual machines deliver incredibly fast recovery performance because the backup media is also the recovery environment. Recovery archives created with PlateSpin Protect can be powered on and run directly within your virtual infrastructure in minutes.

Simple web-based management

PlateSpin Protect includes a simple web-based interface for managing, monitoring, and reporting on all aspects of workload protection and recovery.

Remote control

PlateSpin Protect does not require boot CDs or physical contact with the primary or recovery workloads. It provides a single control point, which saves you the time and costs associated with having to interact directly with production hardware at production or remote recovery sites.



Beyond bare-metal restoration

PlateSpin Protect leverages patented technology to close the loop of disaster recovery by "failing back" or restoring your workloads to any available server – either physical or virtual. With the broadest support of x86 hardware and virtual platforms, PlateSpin gets you back to business as usual with ultimate flexibility.

Events, tasks, and actionable alerts

PlateSpin Protect creates, distributes, and logs events to facilitate better management of the disaster recovery plan. Users can be notified of events through email so they (and you) don't have to actively monitor systems to stay on top of the disaster recovery plan.
