Fast

Incremental backups are done at the block level instead of the file level.  Block level backup provides several advantages including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.

Affordable

Server Backup Manager was designed by Hosting professionals who fully understood the pain involved in managing the hidden costs of a backup solution. Everything is included; no additional modules or plug-ins to pay for and on-demand monthly subscription pricing provides flexible pay as you go service.

multi-platform.png

Multi-Platform

Windows & Linux / Physical & Virtual. RedHat, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE and most custom Linux kernels. VMWare, Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Parallels Cloud Server, Parallels Virtuozzo and KVM. Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange and MySQL (including MariaDB and Percona Server).

multi-tenant.png

Multi-Tenant

Server Backup Manager meets the needs of both Enterprise and Provider environments. It can be setup to allow access only to administrators, group-based administrators, multi-tenant, tiered multi-tenant or a custom configuration. Administrator configuration settings are targeted at typical Enterprise environments where backup and restore activities are handled by one or more IT administrators. The multi-tenant setting is ideal for most Hosting environments where each client company can be given control only over their own users and servers. Similarly, the tiered, multi-tenant setting supports two levels of clients allowing first tier clients to resell their space to second tier clients. Multi-tenant configurations provide a consistent user experience to all users while honoring tenant boundaries.

Once a configuration is selected, users and groups can be created with fine-grained access control assigning privileges and groups of servers as needed.

Scalable

Thousands of servers with one web-based enterprise console. Server Backup Manager’s extensible architecture allows for adding repositories as you grow.

Flexible-Data-Recovery.png

Flexible Data Recovery

Individual recovery points are easily accessible through the web interface where users can select individual files, directories or entire file systems to be restored within minutes. When disaster really strikes, a complete server can be recovered using a Bare Metal Restore, keeping downtime and data loss to a minimum. Data retention regulations for HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc. can be satisfied by locking individual recovery points and archiving them to offsite facilities.

With the ability to replicate server data every 15 minutes, Hosting Providers and their clients will have the highest level of data protection without requiring costly disk and network infrastructure.

Disk Safe Replication

Disk Safe can be fully replicated for offsite storage without taking it offline giving users the freedom to conduct a replication without fear of losing data.

Continuous Data Protection® Technology

Backup server data at the block level bypassing the file system and reading data directly from the disk or volume. Block level backup provides advantages over traditional file backup technologies including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.

Quick Restore

Recover large file systems or entire servers fast with Bare-Metal Restore. Granular file restore and one-click VM restore. Restore even while a backup job is running.

Onsite & Offsite Backups

Using tapes for offsite backups is costly, tedious and time-consuming. Server Backup Manager offers a more efficient method -- Multi-Point Replication. Make multiple copies for on-site or offsite with no interruption to servers. Portable Disk Safe® technology lets you move your backups wherever you need them.

Data Retention Policies

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.

Disk Safe Verification

Monitors your data to make sure it’s safe from corruption. Disk Safe Verification can be scheduled to run periodically or on demand detecting and alerting you in the event of corruption. This reduces the need for test restores, and gives you confidence in the integrity and restore-ability of your data.

Powerful File Excludes

Browse file system and select any combination of files and folders to be excluded from your policy. Add advanced rules and exclude rules using patterns to exclude only certain file types.

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.

*New in 5.6* Disk Safe® Replication

Replicate a Disk Safe for offsite storage without taking the Disk Safe offline. Disk Safe can now be fully replicated while it is online giving you the freedom to conduct a replication without fear of losing data.

*New in 5.6* Self-Service MySQL Restore

cPanel users currently have the ability to restore files and directories as a self-service feature from their Control Panel however when their MySQL database needed to be restored it required that the Hosting Provider get involved to carry out the restoration. This normally delayed the cPanel user from accessing their data and created an unnecessary expense for the Hosting Provider. Now with version 5.6, cPanel users are back in control and able to restore their MySQL database as a self-service whenever the need arises.

Centralized Administration

Back up 100 or more servers to 1 Backup Manager. Extensible architecture allows for adding Backup Managers as you grow. No special hardware required; use any disk-based storage and existing TCP/IP network infrastructure.

Web-Based Interface

Manage 1000s of servers with one web-based enterprise console. Perfect for sprawling data centers, remote servers and/or co-location. Browse and restore files instantly across all server backups using an Explorer-style interface.

Remote Agent Deployment

Server Backup Manager enables you to download, install and configure in under 5 minutes--the simplest, fastest, easiest-to-configure server backup solution on the market. Deployment and configuration wizards provide remote agent deployment for Windows and Linux. Deploy Linux agents using root or any account allowed to sudo. Set or change agent configuration directly from Server Backup Manager.

Control Panel Integration

Secure local authentication of users. Enable user self-service backup and restore. Integrate with popular Linux Control Panels (cPanel, Plesk, InterWorx and more).

SOAP API

Customize customers’ end user experience. Automate server backup functions including: report creation, tracking merge performance metrics, and deploying agents. Integrate billing and/or provision applications.

Data Center Console Option

Optional manager-of-manager view provides high-level summary with drill downs into details on servers, volumes, disk usage, and policies. Console can extend to Backup Managers at remote offices or across multiple data centers. Manage your backups over LAN, WAN or even over distant, low-speed connections.

Virtual Server (VM)

Support backups for the most common virtualized platforms including: VMWare, Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Virtuozzo and KVM.

Microsoft SQL Server
