Virtualization Best Practice: Agent vs. Agentless

Learn how you can get the proven benefits of agent-based backup systems without the expense of per-server agents.

Agentless backup systems simplify administration and reduce purchase and licensing costs by substituting centralized intelligence for individual backup agents. A LAN-free implementation that uses the storage network for backup and recovery can offer even greater efficiencies. What’s more, agentless backup lends itself to policy-based management, which helps administrators maintain greater control of backup and recovery operations with a lower time investment.

Add support for almost all operating systems, databases, and email formats in use today, and you get a flexible, scalable solution that suits the virtualized environments favored by today’s agile businesses.
