About SnapGuard™

SnapGuard (established in 2016) provides you with peace of mind by protecting your data fabric. SnapGuard has been designed specifically for NetApp ONTAP storage systems and is therefore the ideal software for corporations already running on or planning to run on NetApp.

About Cleondris™ Data Manager

Cleondris Data Manager (established in 2010) is the first backup product explicitly developed for enterprise sized VMware environments driven by NetApp storage. Thanks to Data Manager backups in virtual environments are as easy as never before. Agent-less technology allows our customers to offload backup tasks directly into the storage system. Data streams are always handled directly on the storage layer.

The re-gained performance on the VMware ESX farm can be used to up-scale the virtual machine portfolio without adding new resources.

Data Manager has been designed from the ground based on the needs of enterprise customers. It offers a central, web based managent GUi which acts independently of vendor specifc tools. Hence, it perfectly integrates into environments where virtualization, storage and backup are being handled by different teams, all with their own policy.

No matter whether a customer has a hundred or thousands of VMs: Data Manager scales with the business and is the perfect choice to get the most out of NetApp storage.
