Secure Backup and Disaster Recovery | Zmanda

Zmanda Management Console

Zmanda Management Console is the simplest and most reliable backup solution for Enterprise Mac systems. Through automating many of the integration complexities and minimizing overheads for System Administrator, Zmanda becomes the ideal Disaster Recovery solution for your Mac servers and desktops.

Key Features

Manage Sparse Backups
Optimize backup runs by through sparse files. Sparse files contain empty bytes that can be stored in the metadata and help reduce backup sizes.

Preserve Timestamps
During a recovery process, file timestamps are preserved helping audit logs to remain consistent.

Simplified Storage Formats
We use industry-standard data formats such as tar for Mac OS X to ensure disaster recovery is simplified.

Supports Hardlinked Files
Configure individual hard link files to be backed up. Hard links ensure that if the original file is moved/restored, all active links to that file still work.

No Proprietary Device Drivers
If the operating system supports it, the device will work well with Zmanda. Upgrading hardware will not break support for a device you depend on.

Frequently Asked Questions

Zmanda uses Server-Client architecture enabling easy scaling. A central backup server is provisioned on a self-hosted system running Amanda Enterprise (Zmanda product). 

The server is tasked with managing Mac backups that run across all clients linked to that specific server. Mac backup runs and restorations are also managed through Amanda Enterprise Server. Client binaries are then installed on systems that need to be backed up, allowing easy addition of new client systems into the backup set.

If you are using Amanda Enterprise - Recovering after a disaster is easy. The admin has to login to the Amanda Enterprise Server and locate the backup set, which contains the machine ID to be restored. Once the Backup group and Machine ID are found, the admin can either restore data to the same machine or restore it to another system. This is followed by simple on-screen instructions to complete the restoration.

We currently support Mac OS X Server, Mac OS X 10.10, 10.11, 10.12, 10.13, 10.14, 10.15. For more detailed list of the supported OS - please refer our Compatibility Matrix.

You can use Mac Time Machine back up, an inbuilt feature in your Mac, to automatically backup Mac computer. However, if you want an enterprise-level backup for all your Mac systems, Zmanda offers you the perfect Mac backup solution along with a strong disaster recovery plan.
