Client server backup model
Backup Software / Client-Server Backup
Client-server backup is an effective model in which multiple sources of data are backed up to a central server: client computers accept commands from the server, through a set of common interfaces and data exchange protocols. That’s exactly what you can find in our software.
Handy Backup for Workstations consists of two main components called Workstation and Server. Workstation is a client application that is installed on all devices that you need to back up. Server controls Workstations and acts as a central point for administering all operations.

Client-server backup brings the most benefits in business environments. If you have a server that can remotely control client applications, then you can give all responsibilities related to configuring, running and maintaining backups to a single person (or role).
You do not need to teach your employees to back up their data, and the more computers you have, the more time and money you save.
Client-server backup: users on client computers may never know their data is being backed up
Centralized backup advantages are not limited to not having to teach employees. It can also be used to protect computers with no peripheral devices, back up servers that are located remotely, etc.
Note: The term “Server” in “client-server” model doesn’t mean that administrator’s machine must run some server operating system. It is a general term that is used to refer to a computer that manages client applications, i.e. you can use it in home environment as effectively as in business.

Workstations are controlled by Handy Backup for Workstations which keeps all schedules, writes logs, notifies about errors, etc. What happens when backing up a database from one computer to another computer’s hard drive:
Client-server architecture in our software
Client-server architecture is used in all editions of our program including standalone versions designed to run on one computer. On the way from “Source” to “Destination”, the data stream can be compressed, encrypted, and passed through other processing filters.
All modifications are performed using no temporary files, which lowers system requirements. Access to data and storage file systems is performed through the use of different plug-ins.
Data stream path: from “source” plug-ins on one client - through processing filters - to “destination” plug-ins on another client.
