HYCU provides data protection software that can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud. The product was originally
created by, and later spun off from, Comtrade Software.
HYCU was initially released as a data protection software for Nutanix environments. Its support and deployment options have since been expanded; a version is available for VMware environments, it can be deployed in AWS, Google, and Microsoft Azure public clouds, and it can protect Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) container as well as Dell EMC PowerScale OneFS environments.
HYCU maintains deep partnerships with the source infrastructure providers, including Nutanix, AWS, Google, and Microsoft, in order to optimize its various services and solutions to fully accommodate the source environment features and capabilities. A result of this approach is application-centric data protection, with the HYCU product automatically discovering applications and providing application-aware backup and recovery, including application-aware storage-level snapshots.
HYCU Protégé was introduced in mid-2019 as HYCU’s solution for central management of data protection operations (including backups, operational recoveries, and disaster recovery), as well as for application mobility across on- and off-premises cloud environments.
On-premises, HYCU is deployed as a VM image directly on a VMware or Nutanix cluster, without requiring additional hardware. In the cloud, it is procured as a cloud-native software-as-a-service solution. It supports NFS or SMB file shares, S3 object storage, or iSCSI LUNs as backup targets.
HYCU advertises the solution as simple enough to learn in four minutes, to deploy in three minutes, and to recover in two minutes. It features one-touch, impact-free and agentless backup capabilities. Backup jobs are executed based on policies defined by customers based on backup frequency, retention period, and placement. Recovery workflows are also automated, and HYCU has a self-service portal to further
simplify the user experience.
