Reliable, cost-effective backup and recovery protection for your Solaris and OpenSolaris systems

Zmanda Solaris Clients interface seamlessly with the Zmanda Management Console, enabling administrators to use one intuitive, point-and-click interface to backup multiple Linux, Solaris, Windows, and Mac OS X systems - as well Exchange Server, SQL Server, and Oracle databases.
