Why we should use R1soft Backup Manager?
R1Soft takes a slightly different approach to server backup than most traditional backup companies. While traditional, incremental backup products allow you to backup your data at the file level, Server Backup Manager (SBM) enables you to perform backups at the block level.
· Easy-to-use web-based control panel
Bare-Metal Restore (BMR) for full server restores
Support for both Linux and Windows
7-daily recovery points & SQL protection
· File Include/Exclude Option available
The best thing about R1soft Back Manager , it has option of file include/exclude , Its very help full when we start tacking back up of machine.
If the HDD of R1soft backup manager low then we can take only backup of our important file also.
· Fewer Performance Issues
One major advantage of bypassing the file system is that there is no penalty on backup performance for having a large number of files. The backup application never looks at files and doesn’t really care how many files there are on a server.
Block-level backups start by taking a snapshot of the live running volume. The block-level data is then read from the snapshot, rather than the actual disk. This allows the backup to run in harmony with your file system, rather than taxing your servers and causing performance issues for hours on end.
· Easy File Restores
While not every block-level backup solution could do this, but our block-level technology can read files and file attributes from raw disk blocks in a platform independent fashion. That means that R1Soft’s Server Backup Manager doesn’t have to rely on the operating system when it’s reading the data.
Not only does this allow you to backup both Windows and Linux servers, it also allows you to perform cross-platform file restores. Making your restores O.S.-agnostic gives you the flexbility to restore files out of block-based backup done on a Linux server to a Windows server and visa-versa.
Other applications require that you setup your own NFS or CIFS share for the backup application to store and read backup data from. R1Soft has its own network protocol for moving the files and block data so you don’t have configure a network file system.
· Faster and More Efficient
The file system is responsible for keeping track of the tree or hierarchy of files. In doing so, it stores files in neat little fixed size blocks on the disk. Unfortunately, files can be located on blocks that are scattered all across the disk.
Because of this, backup applications that read data at the file level are forced to jump all around the disk and traverse the directory tree just to find all of the files eligible for backup. This tends to be a very fragmented, convuluted process that causes the disk to spend as much time, if not more, searching for the correct information instead of actually reading the data.
voiding that unnecessary search party goes a long way in shortening your backup window and making the whole backup process a that much more predictable.
· Backup your data securely with Crucial.
Dedicated server and VPS customers of Crucial can backup their data safely and securely with R1Soft Backups.
R1Soft Backup works by taking a full server backup, then incremental or ‘changed-file’ backups each night, thus creating 7 daily recovery points. The advantage of R1Soft Backup over the typical FTP or image backup is the ability to login to the R1Soft Backup control panel via a web interface, and browse & restore individual files or folders.
