Data Deduplication

Tandberg Data AccuGuard's Enterprise software is designed to protect servers, workstations and remote computers, with a minimum amount of storage capacity and bandwidth consumption. Protected data is deduplicated and optimized at the client source before it is transferred and stored even on slower networks. However, as the initial backup could take more time, data seeding is supported to do the initial backup locally and transfer it to the data center. Increased backup storage capacity allows many more backups to remain online for the most reliable data recovery practice.

Centralized enterprise-wide backup for SMBs

AccuGuard Enterprise is easy to install and easy to use. There is no need for installing software on the client side. So, every new client or remote workstation can be easily integrated into the enterprise-wide backup environment. All backup jobs and tasks are management and monitored from a central backup server or workstation. Email notification is issued after each job has finished informing the administrator about the results.

Comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery solution

AccuGuard Enterprise provides numerous functions to ensure full data protection and disaster recovery capabilities. Backup copy jobs can be used to implement a backup to disk, to RDX backup strategy for off-site and full disaster protection. In addition, media rotation can be implemented with multiple RDX media for full disaster recovery.


AccuGuard Enterprise offers full flexibility on creating multiple backup jobs for systems, files and folder or Exchange and SQL databases, numerous scheduler options and multiple backup targets, like local disk, RDX QuikStor, RDX QuikStation or NAS systems and network shares. Point in time recovery allows restoring single files and folders of a dedicated backup date, bare metal recovery functionality restores systems from scratch.

Initial data seeding for remote locations

Data seeding with RDX allows you to eliminate the bottleneck of your network bandwidth you may have with remote office locations for backup and Recovery. Run an initial local backup with RDX and then transport and import your backup data into your central backup location. AccuGuard’s sourced based deduplication will only backup the block-level changes from now on and you can fully protect your remote location even with a slow network connection. Larger Restores i.e. in case of a disaster, can also be performed with RDX USB3.0 native speed locally. All you need is a backup copy of your data on RDX at the remote site.
