The Main Features


New interface, New 2016 version

Setting up backup tasks, restoring entire servers and accessing data has never been so easy or intuitive. 

Your server available in 2 minutes

When disaster strikes, our ImageBoot add-on boots your server as a virtual machine in two minutes, allowing you to benefit from near-zero downtime!


Backup made every 5 minutes 

Protect your data, programs and OS with regular incremental backups every 5 minutes that contain only the changes made since the last backup.

Quickly recover from disaster

Recover individual files and folders in seconds. Restore a complete system after a virus attack, hardware failure or even more extreme disasters, in minutes instead of days!


Safeguard backups both onsite and offsite

For extra protection, use ImageCenter LE to replicate your backup files to as many onsite or offsite locations as you would like, including to your home, your IT Service Provider's data centre or in the Cloud.

Fast deduplication

Deduplication is performed inline while a backup is created without effecting backup and restore times or server performance.

Mount your backup image as a local drive to extract files and folders, or share it as a disk on a network.
