Dell AppAssure was a series of backup solutions. The solutions were developed and marketed by the company with the same name until Dell acquired the company in February 2012.[1]

AppAssure was founded by Najaf Husain in 2006.[2] In 2008, AppAssure Software received a "Series A" investment by Bain Capital Ventures.[3]

On November 11, 2011, AppAssure announced the availability of AppAssure v4.7 Backup & Replication Software - On Friday, Feb. 24 2012, Dell announced the acquisition of AppAssure, renaming it Dell AppAssure.[1] Current version in Spring 2014 is Version 5.

(This information is out-of-date) The company's total revenue grew 196% in Q3 of 2011 over the same period in 2010, and total revenue for the third quarter grew 18% over the previous quarter. AppAssure achieved 3,450% growth over the past three years and more than 5,000 customers, partners and service providers in over 50 countries. The company has now posted 20 consecutive quarters of growth.[4]

Dell AppAssure is headquartered in Reston, VA.

Product information

The latest version is version 5.

AppAssure version 5 added the capability to back up Linux servers, physical and virtual. It was developed as a Windows-only backup solution with deep integration for the following Windows application servers: MS Exchange, MS SQL, and MS SharePoint. It also supports backing up Windows VMs hosted in MS Hyper-V and VMWare ESX environments.

It provides global deduplication, easy set-up, and ease of use (according to both the product site and the many reviews referenced in this article). The product strives to minimize recovery time (Near-Zero Recovery Time Objective) and provide 5-minute recovery point granularity. It also purports to be scalable and to allow recovery of backups to any location/VM - even if they have dissimilar hardware from the backup source. It also allows granular object-level recovery for both files and application level objects (such as emails).[5]

The product is delivered by Dell under a software only version and a dedicated hardware appliance (Dell Powervault DLxxxx series)
