Ilesfay® PLM Backup provides reliable and economic backup of all data associated with the PLM environment. For one location or dozens of collaborative sites, Ilesfay Backup can ensure that consistent backups are available when a recovery scenario occurs.
- Consistent, reliable backup of all global locations within the Ilesfay AWS-cloud
- All file types (PLM, application, database and non-vaulted files) can be included in the backup process
- Shared functions with Ilesfay’s PLM Replication and PLM Standby to provide a full suite of PLM data management tools
No Hassle PLM Backup
Ilesfay’s thin agent and PointToCloud® architecture means that setting up each backup scenario is accomplished by using a simple point-and-click console. Once the backup is configured, all file changes are continuously captured and replicated to the cloud to ensure valid point-in-time recoverability.
Zero Capital Investment
By leveraging Amazon’s AWS cloud infrastructure, Ilesfay’s PLM Backup is provided as an infrastructure service (i.e., IaaS), which means no hardware purchase, install, or maintenance is required to setup PLM backup services.
Easy Restore Capabilities
Amazon AWS cloud services mean that all Ilesfay PLM Backups are instantly available for restore to any global location. If a datacenter location is non-functional (flood, fire, tornado, etc.) a new location can be established and all PLM Backups are instantly available. Backups are then made available through the same centralized administration console.
Features & Functions
Binary Change Increments
Using Ilesfay’s patented MatchMaking® binary analysis process, PLM Backup is able to instantly determine which blocks of data have changed since the last backup, which means that only binary blocks of data that have changed need to be copied. Backup windows, if any, have never been shorter.
As an Amazon AWS cloud-based service, PLM Backup provides nearly infinite scalability of backup resources without the need to understand or administer the underlying compute and storage hardware. One location or dozens of locations can have reliable and endless backup resources with Ilesfay’s PLM Backup solution.
All File Types
The Ilesfay PLM Backup solution is tuned to provide maximum benefit within the PLM application environment, but all files that are located with the PLM environment – vaulted or non-vaulted, database, un-structured, etc. – can be backed up by the PLM Backup service. This means that Ilesfay provides the comprehensive backup utility necessary to support the entire PLM application system.
Leveraging the functions of Ilesfay’s CDE™ operations core, each customer is provided a simple console to manage all aspects of the PLM Backup environment. Each location can be centrally defined and administered via the CDE console.
Continuous Monitoring & Reporting
In addition to providing comprehensive PLM Backup administration capabilities, the Ilesfay administration console also provides continuous monitoring and reporting of the PLM Backup environment. This eliminates endless uncertainty about backup and recoverability.
Inconsistent Remote IT Services
Locations may have inconsistent or non-existent IT resources to perform and validate backups in all locations.
In many cases PLM vaults are located in global locations that do not necessarily require full-time IT personnel to manage, but reliable backups of the PLM system are critical to the performance of the application. With Ilesfay PLM Backup the backup can be defined and scheduled from any location for any and all locations. In this way the PLM environment can be remotely backed up and secured.
Single-site Backup Services
Smaller manufacturers or engineering design firms may only have a single PLM site, but the PLM system is a mission-critical application and reliable backups are a must.
Ilesfay’s focused solution for the PLM application environment means that PLM Backup is perfect for the company with a single vault/single site implementation. Ilesfay PLM Backups are easy to administer and require fewer resources than typical tape or OS-level backup systems because Ilesfay leverages Amazon AWS cloud-based services. This means that all backups are stored and managed at the highest level of resilience and reliability.
Pricing for Ilesfay PLM Backup is defined by two parameters:
- Number of sites/vaults participating in the PLM Backup– a per site/vault fee.
- Amount of data that managed within the PLM Replication network.
Site/server and data fees are invoiced on a monthly basis. Annual usage plans can be developed to help eliminate monthly variations, which may address fluctuating budget concerns.
