Server backup and restoration made easy and cost-efficient with IDrive Cloud Backup!

February 26, 2020

Given the importance of big data and data analytics, every SMB and enterprise needs server backup that supports business continuity and disaster recovery. Getting a dedicated server backup solution in addition to the prerequisite data backup plan is not economically viable. You need a solution that offers traditional data backup with support for server backup. Whatever your business data protection needs are, you won’t have to look further than IDrive for the complete solution.

You can sign up for IDrive Business Plan for as less as $74.62 and get 250GB of cloud backup for all your computers, mobile devices, NAS devices and servers. IDrive Server Backup helps you protect your data against server failures and natural disasters through simple, easy-to-configure processes.

IDrive offers online backup for all major servers, including:

  • SQL Server Backup
  • VMware Backup
  • Sharepoint Server
  • Office 365 Mailbox
  • Exchange Server Backup
  • Hyper-V

Cloud backup of servers involves backup of large volumes of data on a regular basis. IDrive optimizes this in the following ways:

  • Incremental Backup - By following up the full initial backup with the backup of only the modified portions of the data.
  • Scheduled Backup - Schedule server backups during non-working hours or as is convenient for your business.
  • Bandwidth Throttle - Set the Internet network bandwidth to be used by the IDrive application or set the ‘Auto Pause’ option to enable intelligent guesses that will optimize your desktop experience.

In addition to these, IDrive offers a host of online backup features that give your business flexible means to secure critical data.

Online backup features by IDrive:

  • Disk Image Backup - Backup your hard drives – OS and system settings included – with the content and information structure intact via IDrive’s disk imaging.
  • IDrive® Snapshots - In the event of a malware attack, retrieve the uninfected version of your cloud backup via Snapshots.
  • IDrive Express - Quickly backup and retrieve gigabytes of data by physically shipping the data in encryption-protected storage devices.
  • Multiple Device Backup - Backup multiple devices to a single IDrive Online Backup account, without any additional fee.
