Secure your data efficiently with IDrive BMR's simultaneous local backup!

January 23, 2019

Performing manual backups of individual computers is not an option for small businesses and organizations. Time being a critical resource, businesses need the means to automate their data backups so that they can be free to focus on the core business. For this and many other scenarios, IDrive BMR has got you covered.

IDrive BMR is a data protection solution that backs up entire hard drives or multiple partitions as single 'image' files to a local BMR server. IDrive disk images are a compressed version of the drives and have system-restore capabilities. You can schedule your data backups on weekdays, on weekends, daily, or even custom-schedule the backup hours for specific days of the week. Further, you can sort computers into 'groups' at team, project, or department level and schedule the backup of the groups.

What more? In the BMR web-based console, you can set the 'Total max backup speed for your local network' and make sure that the multiple backups operating in the background do not slow down your system. You can also custom-schedule the speed for different times of the day and get most of the backups done during the non-working hours of your business.

Robust and reliable data protection features by IDrive BMR:

  • Image-based Backup - Backup your hard drives as 'image' files with recovery points for the entire system – OS, system settings, and applications included – to an onsite BMR server.
  • Snapshot-based Restores - Snapshot offers a time-stamped historical view of your backed up data with recovery points with point-in-time-restore capabilities.
  • VMware Backup - Backup your virtual machines running on ESXi host and vCenter server and enable instant recovery of your virtual machine data.
  • Incremental Backups - IDrive BMR optimizes the application's internet usage by following up the full initial backups with backups of only the modified portions of the backup sets.
  • Centralized Web Console - View and manage your BMR activities and settings from any computer by connecting to the BMR server.

And there's more!

  • Cloud Replication - Transfer a copy of your BMR backups to cloud and maintaining it as a secondary repository for efficient data recovery.
  • Cloud Seeding via BMR Express - Transfer up to terabytes of BMR backups to cloud within a week by physically shipping the backups to the data centers in temporary storage devices.
  • Instant Virtualization - Restore your physical clients and VMware machines in as less as 15 seconds by creating virtual instances of their backup.
