If you bought a new car, would you utilize all of its features? Would you turn on the windshield wipers when it rained, four-wheel drive when it snowed, and the radio when... well, just all time time?

There are a few areas of Server Backup Manager that tend to see being somewhat under appreciated and underutilized by the majority of our partners, but none more than the tool's built-in Application Programmer Interface (API). 

Server Backup Manager's API allows R1Soft partners to seamlessly integrate the product into existing billing or provisioning systems.

Basically, the API allows for customization around the look and feel of the solution, the means by which the solution is accessed, and opportunities to integrate with third-party applications.

  • Reporting
  • Bare-Metal Restores
  • Restoring Files
  • Creating Users
  • Performing Disk Safe Replications

So there you have it. The API is the hidden gem of R1Soft's Server Backup Manager. To find out how you can best utilize Server Backup Manager's API, contact us today!
