The core of all WAXAR solutions is DeviceImage®, a new technology protected by an EU patent. While conventional backup solutions in the standard IT environment are predominantly file-based, DeviceImage® pursues a different strategy: bit-based. This approach brings enormous advantages.
All file-based backup solutions depend on the operating system. This means that they can only function if they are integrated into the appropriate operating system. This results in a further dependency, namely on the updates of the operating system. Furthermore, these backup solutions only recognize the data to be backed up if it is in file form. All other data, for example data from special system areas, is therefore not recognized and not backed up. This dependence on the operating system brings with it a further limitation: The backup solutions are inevitably subject to all restrictions and rules of the corresponding operating system. If it blocks certain file areas, the backup solutions also have no access to this data. Consequently, they remain unsecured.
Thanks to the new technological approach, DeviceImage® is freed from all these restrictions and limitations. The essential thing is that every bit of the information to be backed up is important for DeviceImage®. And so this technology stands for a 100% lossless and operating system-independent backup method.
