Axcient’s Chain-Free backup technology eliminates the pain points associated with legacy chain-based backups – no more data loss, time wasted manually reseeding and consolidating, or unexpected storage overages.
With chain-based backups, you risk losing everything before and after any accidental deletion, hardware failure, corruption or malware attack. To recover, a whole new chain must be started with another full backup and cloud reseed. This process can take days to complete and wastes time and storage.
With Chain-Free, data is stored in a native virtualizable state with a pointer array algorithm, so each recovery point is independent. When corruption occurs, bad data blocks are isolated and independently deleted without risking the integrity of your backup dataset.
Our Chain-Free technology means there is no data bloat, eliminating the need for tiered pricing so there’s no option to upgrade or downgrade and no surprise overage fees. Most use cases get worry-free storage for a simple flat fee per device or per server, and data pooling is permitted per our Fair Use Policy. Plus, Axcient partners enjoy secure data retention to meet long-term compliance standards automatically, and near-instant recovery with always-available backups.
