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 and it can be deployed in Google and Microsoft Azure public clouds. In addition, HYCU Protégé was introduced in mid-2019 as HYCU’s multi-cloud data protection solution.
HYCU software is focused on providing simple-to-use backup for hyperconverged and cloud-based sources. 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 backup capabilities, automation of recovery workflows, and a self-service portal to simplify the user experience. Backups with HYCU are impact-free and do not require agents.
Data protection with HYCU is application focused. The product automatically discovers applications where they are running across virtual machines (VMs) and provides application-aware backup and recovery, including application-aware storage level snapshots.
HYCU is deployed as a VM image and can use NFS or SMB file shares, S3 object storage, or iSCSI LUNs as a backup target. Backups are done based on policies defined by backup frequency, retention period, and placement.
