What is Active Directory

Active Directory is a directory service developed by Microsoft which can be used as a distributed database that stores the information about all company computers and employees.

Also it is a network administration tool that allows company administrators to assign group policies, deploy programs across the network and apply critical updates to all computers or groups of computers from the central server.

Active Directory uses equal domain controllers that automatically duplicate all data stored on them and distribute it across the network to prevent its loss or corruption.

A major advantage of Active Directory is that the administrator can configure and administrate user computers from the central server and there is no need to configure each computer separately.

As a distributed database, Active Directory stores the information about company computers, employees, and connected devices, such as printers.

Who Uses Active Directory

Active Directory has become popular with middle-sized and large-sized organization because it allows administrating large networks using the DNS structure similar to that of the Internet.

Active Directory Backup

Although Active Directory allows replication of data across servers, the replication option cannot be viewed as a reliable backup tool.

To start with, the data stored on the servers can be lost as a result of natural disasters such as flood, fire or a hurricane which can damage all company servers. Human error is another thing which can prevent the system from proper function.

For example, if the administrator made a mistake while creating group policies or deploying enterprise services, this mistake will be replicated on the rest of the servers, thus replication will only deteriorate the situation rather than improve it.

Still another case when a third party backup tool such as Handy Backup can be applied is a company merger. In this case you can back up the entire Active Directory system of the purchased company and restore it on your company network using your company domains.

In addition, our software lets you back up Active Directory to virtually any storage device including CD, DVD, FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV and online, and not just another Active Directory server.

Having considered all the arguments mentioned above, we made a decision to extend our program’s functionality with the Active Directory backup feature. The development is now under way, so visit our website regularly to not miss its release!

With our utility you will back up Active Directory safely and hassle free!
