Ensure timely data protection with simultaneous backup functionality

June 01, 2020

At a small-business or organizational level, it is not feasible to perform manual data backups of individual computers. 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 operations. The good news is, IDrive BMR can help you with that!

IDrive BMR is a data protection solution that backs up whole hard drives as single 'image' files to a local BMR server. These image files are a compressed version of the original data and have system-restore capabilities. You can schedule your backups on weekdays, on weekends, daily, or even custom-set the backup hours for specific days of the week. To backup several computers in one go, simply organize them into 'groups' at the team, project, or department level and schedule the backup of the groups.

What more? The IDrive BMR console gives you the option to set the 'Total max backup speed for your local network' and ensure that the multiple backups operating in the background do not slow down your system. You can schedule most of the backups done during the non-working hours or configure the network bandwidth throttle for IDrive BMR.

Robust and reliable data protection features by IDrive BMR

  • Image-based Backup - Backup entire hard drives as 'image' files with recovery points for the entire system - OS, system settings, and programs included - to a local BMR server.
  • VMware Backup - Backup your VMs running on the ESXi host and vCenter server and enable quick recovery of virtual machine data.
  • BMR NAS - Create and host NAS shares within the BMR storage - shareable over NFS, AFP, SFTP, and iSCSI - and secure them via local snapshots.
  • Incremental Backups - IDrive BMR optimizes the application's network bandwidth usage by following up the initial full backups with backups of only the modified portions of the files and folders.
  • Snapshot-based Restores - Snapshots offers a historical view of your backed up data with time-stamped recovery points that allow you to make point-in-time restores.
  • De-duplication - IDrive BMR uses data compression and block-level deduplication to optimize your local backup space by up to 30%.
  • Centralized Web Console - View and manage your BMR activities from any computer connected to the BMR server.

And there is more!

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