Layered Security

Solaris backup client has many layers of security to ensure that data, communications, and access to the backup process itself are all secure. Role-based access, 256-bit encryption, and support for extended file attributes are the few ways we ensure your backup runs remain secure and you stay in control.

Secure Backup and Disaster Recovery | Zmanda

Key Features

Scalable Client-Server Architecture
To simplify backup overheads, a single server is used to back up multiple networked clients, allowing you to scale up without worries.

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.

Intelligent Scheduling
Our scheduler optimizes backup runs across different clients. Your network and hardware bandwidth is used as efficiently as possible.

Multi-Tiered Hybrid Backups
Data can be backed up redundantly to different media. For example, the same backup can be stored on disk for easy and fast recovery, or to tape/cloud for meeting the requirements of compliance and long-term retention policies.

Supports Hardlinked Files
Easily 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Virtual Machine (VM) is a compute resource that uses software instead of a physical computer to run programs and deploy apps. One or more virtual “guest” machines run on a physical “host” machine.  Each virtual machine runs its own operating system and functions separately from the other VMs, even when they are all running on the same host.

Solaris Image backups are effortlessly supported by Zmanda. Oracle database control files are backed up by Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshots. With Zmanda, the backed-up files are referred to as Snapshot Control files. This snapshot control file is restored on the Oracle machine during restore and is used for manual recovery.

The license to use Solaris is included when you purchase Solaris servers from Oracle or an Oracle Authorized reseller. When used on the same hardware and including support, Solaris is typically less expensive. Solaris generally wins the speed competition, particularly when considering multiple CPUs and cores.
