Solid as a Rock!

The Evolution of Hybrid Backup

The new version SEP sesam Beefalo is the universal backup and restore solution for various virtual environments as well as cloud-to-cloud backup. SEP sesam Beefalo supports eight hypervisors natively. New additions are Proxmox VE and the free Citrix variant XCP-ng. The HPE StoreOnce / Catalyst API is now also supported for HPE environments.

Another highlight is the Cloud App Protection Service for Office 365, Salesforce and G Suite, which also includes the required storage space and ensures a backup of your own data in the cloud environments. Additionally SEP sesam Beefalo supports the extended DIFF and INCR backup levels of IBM Domino. This simplifies the backup configuration for differential and incremental backups.

The new features are rounded off by a new GUI with an optimized structure and new icons for managing a wide variety of backup environments in a single interface.
