Advantages of Automatic Network Backup Software

Regular and Scheduled Job

With an automated backup program, you can forget about taking regular backups manually! Handy Backup allows you saving your data at an exactly specified time, with an interval from months to one minute, or by some event such as user logon, or even when you are placing USB storage into a PC.

Automatic Network Backup

Automated Access to Any Data

The well-developed plug-in system of Handy Backup allows you taking snapshot from any data you can imagine in automatic mode. A database? No problem. A virtual machine or an array of these machines? Yes, got it! A group of files selected by a name mask? OK. Take your network data backup automatically!

A Variety of Storages for Network Backup

Different Data Destinations

Best network backup solutions can store taken backups onto as many vault types as possible. For example, Handy Backup can store data to local and USB drives, to NAS units, common and protected FTP storages, remote drives and folders, as well as cloud services such as Dropbox or OneDrive.

Centralized Planning and Running

Users guide all tasks in online-oriented editions of Handy Backup from one single machine, which contains a GUI-based Management Panel controlling all remote backup agents on other machines. Thus, you have no need to use separate backup task management on each of your remote computers.

Other Principal Features of Handy Backup

Full and Partial Backup

Full and Partial Backup

Take full backups of your datasets online, or select between incremental, differential and mixed (full/differential or full/incremental) backup methods, to save worktime, traffic and space for backups!

Keeping Many Backup Versions with Time Stamps

Keeping Several Backup Versions with Time Stamps

For network backup from many sources, it is a reasonable idea to keep some versions of the same backup dataset simultaneously, providing a version number and a time stamp for each copy.

Encryption and Compression

Encryption and Compression

You can compress your remote backups as ZIP, encrypt saved datasets with BlowFish, or even keep your backup data unchanged, which allows you to browse and use your data directly from backup folders!

Running Other Programs with a Task

Running Other Programs Along with a Task

If you need it, start any external software or a batch file before and/or after running a network backup task. This can be very useful for different data and connection managers, garbage cleaners etc.

Efficient Auto Restoring

Efficient Auto Restoring

Restore your network data with a dedicated task to the original location from that you saved these data, or to completely different location (which allows cloning, submitting, mirroring and exchanging data)!

Detailed Task Reports

Detailed Task Reports

For big quantity of linked machines, results of every backup and restore task is still principal. Take remote backup task reports on your central console, or by receiving an email from the program!

Network Backup Software Scheme

Network Backup Software

For business-level users, Handy Backup provides multi-computer centralized solution Server Network edition.

The Network Plug-in

This plug-in allows accessing to "shared" network resources, such as drives and folders, in a local infrastructure. You can access a shared resource in a network of any type and architecture, including domain and non-domain networks, as well as heterogeneous infrastructures.

The Network Plug-in

Note: If you plan to use a network data source, ou will find the Network plug-in in the Local or Network Drive section of Step 2. On Step 3, the Network plug-in is in the list of available destination plug-ins on the left panel.

Backup Network Drive Software

This solution, dedicated for workstations connected to some local service, provides the standard "Network" plug-in and the Disaster Recovery tool to work as backup network drive software, as well as some other remote backup functions such as FTP and cloud backup.

Backup Network Drive Software

How to Backup Network Drive

To make a network backup drive copy, you must have the Server Network edition of Handy Backup. Select a remote machine on Step 2 of a new backup task wizard, and then select a local drive on this machine to backup with one of image plug-ins (i.e., Disk Image or System Recovery). This will make a drive image.

By using this method, you can backup network drive Windows 7,10, Vista, any server edition or even a non-Windows drive (either system or data), from Mac OS X to Linux to dedicated storage disk. You can restore a network backup hard drive image later by using the Server Network edition.

Centralized Network Configuration and Deployment

Centralized Configuration and Deployment

With the Server Network edition, you can configure and deploy any required quantity of Network Agents just from the management console, which contains tools for pre-configuration and remote installation of each Agent on your network structure.

Key Features of Remote Data Backup Software

Compared to single-machine editions, the Server Network backup solution has a feature of selecting a "main" computer where these solutions implement a selected plug-in for backup, restoration or synchronization. You will see a drop-down list of machines at the upper-left corner.

When You Need to Use Network Backup Software?

Using Physical Online Storage

Using Physical Online Storage

This reason is about protecting your trusted, confidential or highly sensitive data from physical perils, such as fire or theft. With network backup, you will always have an actual copy of your crucial information stored by network somewhere apart with an original dataset which can be ruined by catastrophe.

Keeping Remote Mirrors for Data

Keeping Remote Network Mirrors for Data

Network backup software can just form some environment, shared by network, for using data in collaboration. Some of these tasks successfully utilize private and commercial clouds, but for more private information, automatic network backup to a trusted, shared server is much more preferable method of sharing.

Types of Machines for Network Backup

Network editions of Handy Backup support the two types of remote computers: workstations and servers.

  • Workstations contain user-level data such as files, folders, libraries and disk images, as well as local databases or, sometimes, FTP servers. A Workstation Network Agent, connecting a workstation to a main management panel, is a feature for both backup solutions.
  • Servers can contain both user-level data described above and specific server data such as SQL databases, VMs and VM arrays, private clouds etc. A Server Network Agent is a feature supported only by the server edition, and it cost a bit more than Workstation Agents.
