BMR Scheduled Backup for Timely Data Protection

September 28, 2022

As data is a critical asset to most businesses today, the success of a data backup plan is dependent on it being regular and time-effective. In this context, manual backup ranks low as individually backing up every computer in an SMB or enterprise-level is counter-productive and not feasible. Businesses need scheduled backups to automate and regularize data backups. While there are several data protection solutions that offer scheduling features, IDrive BMR onsite backup solution lets you schedule your image backups to specific hours for different days of the week!

IDrive BMR lets you schedule your local backups as daily, weekdays, weekends, or even custom days of the week – you have complete flexibility in scheduling. This allows you to schedule backups at non-working hours, if necessary. The scheduler also allows you to set the maximum backup speed, backup interval, and the number of full and incremental backups you want to retain for specific clients. You can also apply backup settings for groups of computers and manage data backup of several computers in one go.

IDrive BMR features for effective data backup and recovery

  • Fast Incremental Backup - Optimize your Internet network bandwidth during data backups by following up the full initial backup of your client machines with backups of only the modified portions.
  • NAS storage with iSCSI support - IDrive BMR enables you to create Network Attached Storage datastores within your BMR storage that are shareable via SMB, NFS, AFP, SFTP, and iSCSI protocols.
  • Snapshot-based Restore - Use Snapshot-based bare-metal restore for point-in-time recovery. Restore multiple machines in one go as image data can be accessed directly from the server during restore.
  • Easy Restores - Restore your image backups from server to a computer or multiple computers using nothing more than a pre-configured USB flash drive or boot CD.
  • VMware Backup - Securely backup your VMware machines running on ESXi host and vCenter and ensure a time-effective data recovery support for your VMware data.
  • KVM-based Virtualization - Create up to four virtual instances of your clients on the BMR server instantly using the KVM hypervisor, which provides a better virtualization infrastructure and lets you resume business during data loss.

Cloud support for local backup with IDrive BMR

  • Cloud Replication - Maintain a secondary repository of your BMR local backup on cloud to enable effective business recovery. Your cloud backups will be available for anytime-access.
  • Cloud Seeding - Transfer large volumes of BMR backups to cloud in about a week’s time by shipping the data to the servers in an external device and uploading to cloud via cloud seeding.
  • Cloud Manage - Monitor the backup health of your devices, manage your backups, and create file-level restore points from any external network using the Dashboard via the Internet.
