R1Soft starts by taking a full snapshot of your data. After the initial replica is created, Server Backup Manager continuously monitors changes to your data and saves only those bits of information that have changed. Since you’re not constantly running full, performance-killing backups, your system’s I/O operations aren’t taxed in any way, keeping those critical resources free to serve your clients’ needs. Thanks to R1Soft’s Data Protection Technology, you can perform backups every 15 minutes if you need to.
Server Backup Manager can be setup to allow access only to administrators, group-based administrators, multi-tenant, tiered multi-tenant or a custom configuration. Whether you’re running a standard Enterprise environment where backup and restore activities are handled by one or more administrators or you have a diverse hosting environment where each customer needs a different level of control, this flexible configuration provides you with fine-grained access control over user privileges.
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.
The site-to-site replication feature provides hosting providers with a simple means of replicating backup data across SBM servers regardless of their geographic location. Replicated site data along with the SBM System Backup can be used to restore an entire server, including its archived data, server configuration, and multi-tenant accounts. Just think of it as disaster recovery for your backup system.
Block-level backups bypass the file system and read the data directly from the Disk or Volume. This means that you are able to run fast, performance-friendly backups regardless of the number of files you’re trying to backup. Block-level backups also always have built-in support for open file backup and snapshot features, allowing you to get the most out of your storage space and resources.
Recovery points can be replicated to offsite storage using Amazon Glacier or FTP/FTPS. Archive recovery points can be restored easily from the Server Backup Manager user interface.
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.
Recover large file systems or entire servers fast with Bare-Metal Restore. Granular file restore. Restore even while a backup job is running.
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.
Secure local authentication of users. Enable user self-service backup and restore. Integrate with popular Linux Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk or InterWorx.
Server Backup Manager supports physical and virtual servers running Microsoft Windows and the majority variants of Linux, including custom kernels. Popular virtualization platforms including VMware ESX/ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Parallels Virtuozzo and Parallels Cloud Server are supported, offering hosting and service providers broad coverage. Backup support for MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange are also included in the core product.
