Server Backup Software for Network
Management Panel

Management Panel:

a component of the program that contains a graphical user interface (GUI), which allows creating and controlling network backup, recovery and synchronization tasks.

Network Agent

Network Agent:

a component for installing to any target computer, either server or workstation, on a network, which will make all actual data processing for backup and recovery.

  • Workstation Agent: a type of Network Agent that can process only user-level data, such as files, folders, emails, MS Outlook data and registry, as well as FTP or cloud content.
  • Server Agent: a type of Network Agent that processes both user-level and server-level data, such as virtual machine arrays, databases and MS Exchange content.
Central Console

Central Console:

a machine in a local network that contains a Management Panel, required for controlling all tasks from a single point. It also contains a copy of a Network Agent for backup.

Remote Machine

Remote Machine:

a server or a workstation with an appropriate type of Network Agent installed to, which can send or receive backup data via network.

Example for Server Backup

Here we will describe a sample scheme for organizing centralized backup. Let us have a small network with six user machines, a data server with MySQL and SFTP data (which also runs a company website), and an all-purpose storage server, which is a workplace for a system administrator.

  • Deploy the Management Panel on a storage server; let it be our central console.
  • Also, install a Server Agent to a central console, for making backup and recovery on it.
  • Deploy the Workstation Agents for all user computers.
  • Finally, install a Server Agent to a company data server to ready for server network backup!
Backup Server Network

How it works? Only a system administrator creates and governs all tasks from a central console, via running the Management Panel to control tasks. A task can involve any machine via its Network Agent to make some backup, recovery or sync job.

Centralized Configuration and Deployment

Newest versions of Handy Backup allow not only making pre-configured installation files for Network Agents on remote machines but also deploying these Network Agents throughout a local network directly from the main management panel of a system administrator.

This feature is extremely useful for implementing network backup architecture on very big, complex or heterogeneous local networks. It is not only much more comfortable than installing Network Agents manually but also adds to security due to avoiding third-party solutions.

Centralized Installation of Network Agents with Centralized Deploy
A Variety of Data Storages

Using Modern Local and Online Data Storage

You can store backups locally at a central machine, as well on some remote server, on external USB device, NAS, FTP/SFTP/FTPS storage, or on some cloud — server backup to Google Drive, Amazon S3 and other S3-driven clouds, OwnCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, etc.

Calling for External Software

You can run some external program or batch file automatically before or after a particular backup server task, allowing using Handy Backup as a part of integrated data workflow.

For example, you can execute antivirus scanning with an external program before your Windows Server 2016 backup, to ensure that data included in the dataset is free from viral attacks.

Starting Pre- and Past- Actions
Encrypting and Compressing

Encrypting and Compressing Information

To optimize storage space, time and security of transferring big data arrays, such as complete Windows Server 2019 backup, you can compress data to a ZIP and encrypt with a modified 256-bit AES.

Silent Mode – No Distractions for Users

Client components of the Windows server backup tool will run as Windows services or hidden Linux processes, making no distraction for remote users. The central console also has a service mode.
