CIFS File System

CIFS architecture helps shared access to backup files between systems on a network. It simplifies the communication by using a client-server architecture where Zmanda can manage read, write, edit, and even remove access on any backup sets on the file server. Using CIFS file systems, managing backups is simple and scalable.

How we benefit you?


Simple, Flexible Backups

Supports full and multi-level incremental backups using industry-standard data formats such as GNU-tar and star.


Cross-Platform Restore

You can restore data from a backup to a host with a different operating system. That simplifies the disaster recovery process.


Manage Sparse Files

Optimize backup runs by using a Sparse file. Sparse files contain empty bytes that can be stored in the metadata and help reduce backup sizes.



With Zmanda, you can be sure that your data won’t be accessed by someone who shouldn’t have access to it.



Backup size matters. We thus use industry-standard compression algorithms, also preventing vendor lockins.


Hybrid Cloud Architecture

Balancing workloads across multiple cloud providers shouldn't be complicated. Zmanda ensures all configurations can be managed seamlessly from a single console.


We pour our hearts into creating the most reliable backup solutions, and our customers testify to our commitment.

Zmanda guarantees end to end data integrity and easy storage... They provide fixes for our issues and respond very quickly every time.
