Dell AppSync simplifies, orchestrates, and automates the process of generating and consuming application-consistent copies of production data. The deep application integration of AppSync, coupled with the abstraction of underlying Dell storage and replication technologies, empowers application owners to satisfy copy demands for data repurposing, operational recovery, and disaster recovery, all from a single user interface. It can manage the protection, replication, and repurposing of databases and applications using integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM) and replication technologies across the Dell storage portfolio. AppSync supports Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, VMware datastores, and other file systems. See the for information about supported features for specific environments.
In combination with PowerStore, AppSync provides intuitive workflows to set up local and remote protection, and repurposing jobs. It provides end-to-end automation of all steps including application discovery and storage mapping, creating copies, and mounting or recovery of the copies to the target. AppSync supports both PowerStore T and X models and their snapshot and thin-clone technologies. If AppSync must create remote copies, it uses the native asynchronous replication feature of PowerStore. Currently, AppSync does not support PowerStore file storage, VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (vVols), or integration with Dell metro node or VPLEX. See the for additional support information as it becomes available.
