There are two key components to the BackupPRO Business Cloud Backup Service.
- Primary Storage Platform: This is the back-end management software and data storage servers located in the secure data centres.
- BackupPRO Professional Client Software: This is the application installed on the customer’s server, desktop or laptop that performs the automated incremental backup process and transfers the data in an encrypted state to the Storage Platform.
The Backup Cycle
As a standard, incremental backups from a minimum of 30 days to a maximum of 60 days with a 1 month-end roll-up are stored on the Storage Platform. The month-end roll-up contains the last version of each individual file that is selected for backup. Extended visibility of this data can be changed to suit the company’s requirement.
The Restore Process
Restoring files within BackupPRO is simplicity itself. The user selects the Restore Option and is presented with a list of previous backups by date and time. The system presents this information in two nodes: Last Backup and Previous Backups. The Last Backup option contains the file/folder structure of the last successful backup. Restores from the Last Backup are typically faster than those done from Previous Backups as the software may be able to retrieve the data from the local cache rather than the Storage Platform.
