Today’s tip focuses on recovery point archiving for CDP 3.0 Enterprise and Advanced Editions, available in the latest CDP release.
In addition to your regular backup schedules, your company may need to archive data at certain intervals for internal and/or regulatory requirements. For example, you may need to archive on a monthly basis.
The recovery point archiving feature in CDP 3.0 Enterprise and Advanced Editions offers an easy solution to create archives of your data on a specified hour, day, week, or month.
Archive points are essentially recovery points that can be used for long term data storage to provide integrity and safe-keeping of data according to specified schedules. You have the flexibility to set up the date, time, and number of archive points. For example, you could set up a schedule so that archive points are created at the end of your day, on the last day of the month, for 24 straight months (when you exceed the specified number of archive points, old archive points will be replaced by new ones).
In addition to setting up and creating archives per your specified schedule, you can also browse and restore files/folders within archives and perform Bare-Metal Restore on archive points.
