Empalis VIKING Backup Architektur
With VIKING, you get a comprehensive backup solution with a modular design that you can configure and customize according to your individual needs.

Data protection on a new level

In addition to the flexible design, the complete separation of customer environment and appliance is a major advantage of VIKING. As a result, there is no single point to compromise or attack both production and backup environment.


The appliance concept gives us the flexibility to scale from 10 VMs up to several 1000 VMs and also integrate the Viking smoothly into existing Spectrum Protect landscapes. Due to its scalability, VIKING cannot only serve as a backup target, productive workloads can be verified and even started from this appliance.
