What is a self-hosted Backup Server?
The Windows Backup Server will act as your offsite remote data vault, storing your customer’s important business data, encrypted, and compressed into block-level objects on your server’s storage devices, which can easily be scaled out as needed by adding additional hard drives. The other nice thing about the self-hosted Windows Backup Server is that you can easily perform server-side data restores and deliver it to the client site, or push it onto a new machine or server.
How the branded data backup and recovery works
The way it works is that you will deploy a custom branded online backup client with your logo, business name, and other company information, at the customer business location on their servers or workstations. The backup client works on a schedule scanning for changes to the files and systems selections and will incrementally backup the new changes, and send the data offsite to the Windows Backup Server, in addition, you can enable a local backup vault for added redundancy.
