NEC Active Image Protector 


Active image protector is an Image Backup Software that is able to provide backup for the entire system and all its data on the hard disk drives. The backup is created in a form of an “Image File” and can be created while the system is in operation.

In an event there is a system failure, the original system can be easily replicated using the “Image File”. The data and the system can be restored by simply transferring the “Image File” back onto the Server/Computer.
