The GRAX Virtual Appliance
Public beta of the GRAX Virtual Appliance (GXVA) is now available. The GRAX Virtual Appliance is the latest evolution of GRAX. Simply put, you can run GRAX inside your own public cloud infrastructure. Instead of having GRAX provision and manage the AWS infrastructure that is running behind the scenes, we can now reach into your AWS world and do that work for you there. This latest version of GRAX has been developed to solve some of the challenges that our bigger customers have been bringing to us.

Single Record Restore
The new GRAX Single Record Restore component provides a powerful point-in-time restore capability to end users in Salesforce. Users will be able to quickly preview different versions against the current data in Salesforce and choose which fields to restore. Imagine loading an opportunity record and quickly seeing at a glance all the backed up versions of the opportunity to understand the rate of change, as well as preview data against the new live version to understand what exactly has changed. Finally, the user can restore all or restore only specific fields and their historical values. Click here to start exploring the documentation. Existing GRAX customers should reach out to their GRAX Support representative to get access to this new feature.
