Key Features

One Console For All Workloads
Stop juggling multiple consoles and tools. Unite them all with the full capabilities within Zmanda Management Console to manage data across multiple workloads.

Industry Leading Real-Time Objective
Zmanda scheduler optimizes Backup Runs across multiple clients to use Network and hardware resources. It enables enterprises to achieve near RPO & RTO objectives - even during major IT outages. IT teams can expect seamless backup and recovery processes across our entire product offerings.

Intelligent Scheduling
Zmanda’s unique scheduler optimizes the backup level for different clients in a way that equalizes the total backup time from one backup run to the next. Network and hardware resources are used efficiently, reducing congestion in IT Networks while delivering consistent backup runs. We create the difference.

Streamline 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. We help you get results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Backups are important because they help prevent permanent loss of valuable data. Ubuntu servers are mainly used in enterprises to power critical workloads as they are known for providing high-end security and resilience. This makes it imperative for system admins to know all their Ubuntu server backup options to ensure valuable data is recoverable in times of human-made or natural disasters. 

Zmanda uses Server-Client architecture, allowing for easy scaling.

  • A central backup server is provisioned on a self-hosted system running Amanda Enterprise (a Zmanda Product).

  • The server is tasked with managing backup runs across all clients linked to that specific server. Backup runs and restores are also managed through this Amanda Enterprise Server.

  • Client binaries are then installed on systems that need to be backed up, allowing for 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 has to decide if they want to restore data to the same machine or if they want to recover it to another system. Post that, the admin has to follow simple onscreen instructions to perform the restore.

Absolutely. Using Zmanda - the Ubuntu Server system state is captured allowing for an easy Ubuntu server image backup and recovery process.
