Distributed backup solution for corporate networks
Handy Backup / Features / Coming Soon / Distributed backup solution for corporate networks
As world becomes more dependent on computers, the value of information increases, and so does the importance of performing regular data backups. Many companies consider using network backup technology, a system that allows backing up all corporate data over network to a central server. According to statistics, downtime caused by data loss costs for businesses more than $12 billion a year, and thats why network backup solutions receive much attention from enterprises of all sizes.
Handy Backup Network Server has recently gone for the most advanced development in the area of network backup called distributed backup. Distributed backup is a step forward from common server-based network backup to a serverless distributed backup system that allocates backup data across the whole network. Logically, all computers within the network collaboratively create a virtual server that can be accessed by any client, but physically, there is no central data storage.
The technology of distributed backup easily and coherently integrates into the architecture of Handy Backup Network Server and provides numerous benefits that make it one of the best network backup solutions for enterprises:
A distributed backup system is based on a peer-to-peer network technology. Backed up files of each computer are split into several chunks and allocated across the network. All computers (or nodes) simultaneously function as clients and servers, copying their data to the network and providing access to backed up data of other computers. To increase reliability of the system each data chunk is replicated several times and stored on different nodes. If some peer fails, the data can always be retrieved from the remaining computers.
Data management is performed by a so-called Distributed Backup Coordinator, a machine that coordinates all actions within the network backup system. Distributed Backup Coordinator represents an interface between Handy Backup Network Server and participants of the distributed backup system, and has the following functions:
Integrated into the architecture of Handy Backup Network Server, distributed backup system provides the most powerful and cost-effective data protection for corporate networks. It allows performing backup, restoration and synchronization of multiple computers at once, working with minimal consumption of system resources, what allows running all tasks during work hours. Once set up, it fully automates all processes, requiring no user intervention on client computers. It provides higher backup reliability and strongly reduces overall expenses needed for corporate backups.
