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 for Linux.


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.



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



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


Hybrid Cloud Architecture

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

Frequently Asked Questions

We support full & multi-level incremental Linux backups using industry-standard data formats such as GNU-Tar & STAR for Linux. You can start as small as three nodes & add resources as your requirements evolve across hybrid multi-cloud environments.

Zmanda 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 Zmanda server. On the other hand, many Zmanda 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.
