Our Metiix agent is deployed on each computer that you would like to protect. The advantage of agent-based data protection is to be aware of additions, changes, and deletes made to files on the host computer in real time. The agent then de-duplicates the data at the variable block across the entire server, DAS, SAN or NAS and encrypts it, before leaving the source. Agent based software allows for near real-time data protection and more frequent data recovery points with minimal CPU and network utilization. Securing the files directly at the source means advanced variable block level de-duplication within all files across the entire server, tighter security, and dramatic disk reduction at all destinations, as well as minimal CPU and network utilization.

The Metiix Grid agent performs these tasks locally at the host. Allowing secure blocks of data to be written directly from the source host to multiple independent destinations, utilizing many disk alternatives (or choose our vault). The Grid agent eliminates the need for proprietary hardware, media servers or other middle-ware. Our Grid agents monitor for file changes in real-time and can send encrypted data to multiple independent destinations great frequency. With Metiix, there is no single point of failure as each agent acts independently on each server with phenomenal reporting capabilities. We call it, creating "a Mesh", or "Private Grid".

Utilizing an agent-based approach to encrypt and de-duplicate all of the data before it leaves the server ensures that only the smallest possible amount of data travels on the network to the local and remote destinations, with the highest level of security. This approach allows our customers an infinite range of destination storage options from all manufacturers. It also ensures the smallest possible amount of data is stored, elongating the lifespan of the destination disk to its maximum potential.
