How to Simplify Data Protection with Centralized Backup

by Bridget.Giacinto, on Sep 9, 2014 11:06:31 AM

NovaBACKUP CMC DashboardCentralized backups allows IT managers, service providers and resellers to manage and monitor all backups for their users or clients from a single remote location. Utilizing the web-based NovaBACKUP Central Management Console (CMC), client installations of NovaBACKUP can be installed and managed from anywhere with internet access. All backups can be automated and monitored to ensure that they are working properly. Notifications can also be set up so that if a backup fails on one of the clients, the administrator can remotely setup or modify backup jobs. If administrators receive notice of a deleted file or files, they have the ability to remotely run a restore of lost files.

CMC includes a dashboard for a quick view of the most important figures, giving admins an immediate status snapshot of all connected NovaBACKUP installations and offers simplified wizards to help them create, delete, modify and schedule backup jobs.

The console offers an easy drill down option that allows administrators to access the file system of a single NovaBACKUP instance to select specific files and folders as well as selecting from SQL, Exchange, or specific virtual machines.
