It will support ever increasing traditional data and cloud workloads like Microsoft SQL, Oracle, AWS RDS, Aurora, Redshift, Cassandra, MongoDB, and CouchDB.

In CloudPoint, there are 2 interfaces i.e. a user interface and an API. The user interface provides a simple web-based GUI for backup scheduling, policy creation, monitoring and reporting across your cloud environments.

With API, the end-user can control and interact with the software easily and it also permits a consumer or a 3rd party to build custom software that interacts with CloudPoint. So, it is very flexible also.

The modular structure allows for autonomous improvement of workload plugins so new releases of functionality will not then have to wait for the major software release.
