How can you protect data you don't even know about? Think about it: You can back up your servers with great diligence, yet some users still keep critical data on their computers' hard drives. Even though you back up your servers regularly, you will never know how much critical data users are storing on their desktop hard drives and, unfortunately, that data is probably not backed up often or at all with little or any focus on regulatory compliance.
With the progressing use of laptops in the mobile work place, backing up these mobile workstations becomes a burden on the IT staff and for organizations who need to comply with regulatory compliance such as HIPAA. When the data protection of these mobile workstations is left to the user, IT administrator know that the backups will be inconsistent and cannot be guaranteed. Deploying backups solutions has the downside of continuous maintenance and support. This places the IT administrator in an often challenging situation.
IT staff can manage the desktops and laptops from a centralized point in the LAN. This provides the IT staff with easy access to rectify backup issues, check logs, and notify users of possible backup/restore related issues bringing administration time down considerably. Web-based status reports and email notifications assure accountability, by ensuring all backups ran successfully. The central management has complete view and control over the entire LAN from one interface, which can also be integrated with various SNMP-based monitoring systems. When mobile users are connected to the LAN, IT staff can remotely configure, schedule and troubleshoot backup and restore issues as needed by the user.
Unlike other solutions there is no licensing fees, you pay for what you store on the data vault. This helps with the constant attention to renewing licenses and ensuring there are enough licenses for all users. This cost-effective model keeps deployment costs low, even for larger organizations. With de-duplication, large and also small organizations can be assured that duplicate data across the network will not be stored twice increasing cost and storage. The average storage cost decreases as more desktops and mobile devices are added to the network.
Automating and simplifying deployment is an IT administrators dream. This dream is possible by utilizing deployment tools making fully automated deplyment, configuration, registration, and backup scheduling easy over a variety of operating systems. For organizations who may want to let users install their own software, can utilize pre-made configurations to ensure the user is in compliance with your organizations policies.
Reducing the data backed up by delta block processing enabling better use of bandwidth, storage while reducing overall backup windows to an absolute minimum. To speed up recovery even further, users can enable the local storage option which keeps a local copy of the changed data to be restored at LAN speeds while the data remains safe remotely on the data vault. Settings can be applied to desktop and mobile users that will limit the resources used by the backup as to not affect productivity while still being protected.
