Designed to have a low footprint on CPU, bandwidth and storage usage, employing innovative and industry-leading technologies, Backup & Recovery is designed to have minimal impact on your systems and network performance.

 

The tables below list the most important features and benefits of Backup & Recovery:

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

True Delta Technology

True Delta Technology reduces backup volume. Incremental backups only include block level changes. You only backup the part of the file that has changed, not the whole document each time.

<1% a day prevents using too much bandwidth to send to Backup & Recoverys’ cloud storage.

<1% a day prevents using excessive cloud storage to store daily backups

<1% a day prevents storing more than 100% of the selected data

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

Security

Client-side encryption

128 bit AES encryption, standard protocol used for all secure web transactions today:

Client-side encryption

Before sending, the data is encrypted. No need for an extra secure connection or extra security on your storage

No cloud decryption

There is no decryption on the storage

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

Backup & Recovery Client

Client-side delta discovery

Fast discovery of the changes in directories and even within files, reduce backup windows up to 10 times

Client-side deduplication

Deduplication on a very high level, block based. Prevents sending and storing data unnecessarily

Client-side compression

Prevents sending and storing more data than needed

Client-side cabinet caching

Before sending data to the cloud, it is cached client-side. This greatly reduces bandwidth load, files stored in the cloud and also the CPU overhead required.

CPU optimized client

Performing the backup takes less than 10% of a typical CPUs capacity.

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

2-Tier Backup

Local Speed Vault

Storing a second local backup on the client-side makes it possible to perform restores using local storage.

For larger datasets, restores will not be limited by the speed of the connection to the cloud

Customers feel safer, not only storing data in the cloud, but also on premise.

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

Bandwidth

Low bandwidth usage

Cabinet technology and low delta’s minimize the usage of the connection, both for backup and restore

Advanced reconnect

When the connection fails during backup, backups will continue when the connection is restored

Advanced bandwidth throttling

Limits the usage of the bandwidth during specific hours

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

Seed Loading

Perform initial offline backup and upload through Self-Service Seed Loading.

Seed Loading offers the opportunity to speed up the initial backup upload process. Particularly for large datasets or where devices are on a slow or unstable internet connection

Only applies to the initial backup with all subsequent backups upload directly from device

 

Feature Set

Features

Benefits

Monitoring and Management

Dashboard monitoring and management

Easily monitor and manage backups with an absolute minimum of time

Dashboard remote commands

Push settings and commands from the Dashboard to the Backup Manager

Remotely access the Backup Manager

Access the device's Backup & Recovery Manager directly from the Dashboard

Agent auto-update

Automatically update agents from the Dashboard to the latest version of Backup & Recovery

Daily Selected Size Check

Set a soft limit on per day usage and receive notifications when plugins/data sources exceed the configured threshold value

Dashboard user roles/auditing

Different roles can be predefined, supports auditing

Backup Manager advanced scheduling

Enables backups to be scheduled per plugin/data source, per hour or weekly

Easy exclude

Selected file types can be easily excluded from the backup, prevents storing data you don’t want to backup

Archiving

With the Backup & Recovery Archiving Service you can specify a backup set for any device’s data source and designate this as a never to be deleted archive. This way you will always have a snapshot of your customers’ date and can recover this from the archive, even if it was deleted weeks ago from the normal backup remediation.
