The Next Step After Installing and Setting Up Your Own White Label Backup Service With a WholesaleBackup Microsoft Azure Backup Server Is Starting the First Backup

In this post, we’ll cover the very last step of the guide: How to deploy offsite backup services with Azure backup server in 12 steps. Where we’re using the WholesaleBackup Windows Offsite Backup Server Backup platform.

The video captures the process of:

1.) Downloading & Installing the White-Label Backup Client

In the guide, we covered the creation and build process of generating your white-labeled offsite backup solution from the Backup Management Web Console. That’s where the installer is downloaded directly. In backup agent will be installed on a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 for the demo.

2.) Registering a New Backup Account

As the backup client registers, you’ll see in real-time the account populate in your Backup Management Web Console. In addition to registering and being populated on your freshly deployed Windows Backup Server hosted on Microsoft Azure.

3.) Making Data Selections and Launching the First Backup to the WholesaleBackup Azure Backup Server

On Windows 2016 Datacenter VM.

From the backup > selections tab of the agent we’ll traverse the file system and select a folder from the Desktop of the Windows Server 2102 R2 that contains 60 MBs of data for an initial backup. Then we click over to the backup > schedule tab and initialize the backup.

4.) Monitoring the Backup Transfer in Real-Time From the WholesaleBackup Windows Backup Server on Azure & the Backup Ops Web Console

When the backup is “kicked off”, communication is immediately established to the Web Console and the deployed Azure Virtual Datacenter, as the backup status is continually updated and we monitor it until the backup successfully completes.

During the backup process the data is first compressed, then encrypted using AES-256 block encryption, and lastly broken into 1MB file blocks and transmitted over HTTPS / SSL to the backup server.
