Key Features Of Zmanda Enterprise Backup

How we benefit you?


Simple, Flexible Backups

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


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.


Hybrid Cloud Architecture

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



With Zmanda, you can be sure that your data will not be access by someone who shouldn't have access to it.



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


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.

The NFS service enables computers of different architectures that run different operating systems to share file systems across a network. NFS support has been implemented on many platforms that range from the MS-DOS to the VMS operating systems.

The NFS environment can be implemented on different operating systems because NFS defines an abstract model of a file system, rather than an architectural specification. Each operating system applies the NFS model to its file system semantics. This model means that file system operations such as reading and writing function as though the operations are accessing a local file.

The NFS service has the following benefits:

  • Enables multiple computers to use the same files, so everyone on the network can access the same data
  • Reduces storage costs by having computers share applications instead of needing local disk space for each user application
  • Provides data consistency and reliability because all users can read the same set of files
  • Makes mounting of file systems transparent to users
  • Makes accessing of remote files transparent to users
  • Supports heterogeneous environments
  • Reduces system administration overhead

Zmanda helps enterprises achieve NFS backups and objectives - even during major IT outages. IT teams can expect robust NFS backup strategies. Zmanda is a powerful backup and recovery offering for a price less than you would expect.

Amanda is designed to handle large numbers of clients and data, yet is reasonably simple to install and maintain. It scales well up and down, so small configurations, even a single client, are possible. There are many users who back up just a single client that is also the Amanda server. On the other hand, many Amanda users backup hundreds and even thousands of file systems (there could be multiple file systems per protected system) to a large tape library with multiple drives.

Yes, Zmanda production support team is available 24 x 7 over both phone and email. You can choose our Standard or Premium level of support, made available to you with complete knowledge base access, email and phone support, case management, software enhancements and security updates.
