Backup Smart Way has been designed to making it possible for companies with no on-site dedicated personnel or IT expertise to implement a trustworthy, easy-to-use and efficient backup system. It guarantees that their critical data remains protected while eliminating most of the costly and complicated administration tasks, thus generating a real return on Investment.
Backup Smart Way is an appliance-based solution. This means that it integrates all of the components needed to manage backup & recovery operations. Backup Smart Way’s software and hardware of has been developed in parallel to ensure that they communicate and interact smoothly – a real advantage vs. typical market solutions, in which each component (server, software, tape library) is managed separately and requires external integration and expertise.
Backup Smart Way can be easily and directly installed on the LAN, enabling to backup all the strategic data and applications for Novell, Windows, UNIX and Linux environments. The Backup Smart Way main innovation lies in its backup-to-disk system. The daily backups are first written to the appliance hard disk – a simple operation that makes recoveries available directly from disk - a far more rapid and reliable process compared with recovery from tape.
Data is then mirrored subsequently to a secondary media (Tape or DVD) in order to ensure data integrity in the case of system crash as well as enable companies to keep data off-site.
