Backup Restore And Disaster Recovery
Complete Data Backup Solution with Disaster Recovery
Ciphertex NAS servers offer a complete backup solution for data protection, including support for cloud-based storage backup (Amazon S3), Apple Time Machine, encrypted remote replication to a Rsync or an FTP server, third party software backup, and one-touch-copy backup. You can choose different backup modes for redundant data backup.
Cloud Storage Backup
The Ciphertex NAS server is ready to send private data to the clouds! The NAS server supports Amazon S3 cloud backup storage which has several backup modes including real-time, scheduled backup and versioning control so that the data can be restored from any point of time. Cloud storage can be monitored through a web browser. An extra set of all of the data stored will always be available, so remote data recovery is quick and simple.
You can configure the one touch- copy button on the front of the Ciphertex NAS server (except Rack Mount) to copy the data from the NAS server to an external storage device or vice versa. The Ciphertex NAS server supports EXT3/EXT4; NTFS and HFS+ file systems for high-speed data transfer and enhanced compatibility between the Ciphertex NAS server and Windows and Linux PCs or Mac OS X.
Real-time Remote Replication (RTRR)
Provides real-time or scheduled data replication between the Ciphertex NAS server and a remote Ciphertex NAS server, an FTP server, or an external drive with or without encryption.
The data stored on the Ciphertex NAS servers can be remotely backed up to another Ciphertex NAS server or to external servers with Rsync protocol over the network or without encryption.
Apple Time Machine Backup and Management
Mac users can back up data from Mac PCs and Notebooks to the Ciphertex NAS server via Time Machine. This feature saves the storage space of your Mac units. You can also specify the amount of storage space dedicated to Time Machine backup on the Ciphertex NAS server and manage the backup data easily via the web-based administration interface.
Third-party Backup Software
Ciphertex NAS servers are compatible with the popular third-party backup software, for example, Acronis True Image, CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup, EMC Retrospect, and Symantec Backup Exec.
iSCSI LUN Backup and Restore
Ciphertex NAS servers have taken iSCSI LUN backup/restore to a whole new level with snapshot technology. The IT administrator can use the LUN snapshot to back up contents in the LUN to various storage destinations, including Windows shared folders via SMB/CIFS, Linux shared folders via NFS, or local shared folders on the NAS server.
