  • Backup Performance and Options
  • High Performance Backups
    • The first time your continuous data protection policy runs, it will perform an initial replica of your data. After the initial replica, Server Backup stores block level deltas, leading to shorter backup windows and reduced disk I/O.
  • Bare-Metal Restore
    • Faster alternative to file-by-file restore in the event of disaster. By bypassing the file system and streaming blocks directly to disk, restores of large file systems can be performed significantly faster.
  • Innovative Web interface
    • In addition to policy management and reporting, browse, download, and restore files from recovery points using an Explorer-style interface. Additionally, users can see the detailed progress of replication and restore jobs as they run.
  • Data Retention Policy
    • Define a replication goal (for example, every 15 minutes) and how many recovery points to retain. Old recovery points are automatically merged and their storage is recycled.
  • Multi-Point Replication
    • Tape is tedious. Efficiently make multiple backup copies of servers for on-site and off-site needs. Additionally, you can make redundant on-site copies with no interruption to Servers during the replication.
  • Portable Storage Backups
    • With Portable Disk Safe® technology, your backups go wherever you need them to. Move a Disk Safe to a new location, open it with another Server Backup installation or even copy it to a USB drive.
  • MS Volume Shadow Copy
    • Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service is used to produce a point-in-time snapshot of disk volumes, delivering protection for locked and open files.
  • Powerful file excludes
    • Browse file system and select any combination of files and folders to be excluded from your continuous data protection policy. Add advanced rules and exclude rules using patterns to exclude only certain file types.
  • Disk Safe Encryption
    • AES-256 Disk Safe Encryption can be enabled at the time of creation of Disk Safes for backup data. This aids in the protection of data stored in the Backup Server, and in protection of the data over the network.
  • Industrial Strength Storage
    • Archive up to 64TB of recovery points per disk. On-disk journaling passes the ACID test and recovers automatically from crashes and product failure.
  • Central Backup Administration
    • Manage up to 100 server backups to 1 backup manager repository. Extensible architecture allows for adding repositories as you grow. No special hardware required, use any disk-based storage and existing TCP/IP network infrastructure.
  • Virtual Server (VM) support
    • Support backups for the most common virtualized platforms including: VMWare, Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Virtuozzo and KVM.
  • MS SQL Server backups:
    • Backup MS SQL Server 2012, 2008 R2, 2008, 2005 and Express databases. Utilizing the MS Volume Shadow Copy Service provides disaster recovery of an entire SQL Server.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server backups:
    • Complete server backup for MS Exchange Server 2010 and 2007. Protect the entire MS Exchange environment including OS, exchange installation and bare metal restore disaster recovery.
  • MySQL backups:
    • Backup MySQL databases with snapshots which are performed by coordinating a MySQL Lock and Flush with the Server Backup Linux snapshot device driver.
  • Recovery Point Archiving:
    • Corporate and regulatory requirements often require the archiving of data at certain intervals (for example, monthly or annually). Define an archiving policy for recovery points to ensure retention requirements are supported.
