Backup Data to Scality

CloudBacko can perform block-level incremental / differential backup of your VMware / Hyper-V guest VMs, Microsoft Exchange database and individual mailboxes, Microsoft SQL database, MySQL database, Oracle database, Lotus Domino, Windows System and System State, Outlook pst, and ordinary files to Scality Cloud Storage for offsite data protection. In case your local site is striked by a disaster, your mission critical data will still be intact and ready for restore from Scality. Read all the benefits that CloudBacko backup software can give you from here.

Why use CloudBacko when I can directly upload data to Scality?

Good question! First of all, Scality just provides you with storage space and a simple web interface so that you can manually upload data. However, how are you going to copy Office 365 data, VMware / Hyper-V guest virtual machines, Microsoft Exchange Database, Microsoft SQL Database to there automatically and as frequent as you want? CloudBacko is the answer.

Secondly, CloudBacko encrypts all the filenames and contents of your data on your local machine before sending to Scality. Besides, it encrypts everything with 256-bit truly randomized encrypting key. Thus, no easily hackable key such as "123", "abc", etc. will be used. With this unique encryption methodology, no one, not even the people from Scality, is able to know what you have backed up.

Moreover, CloudBacko Pro and CloudBacko Lite can automate everything. Once set up, backup will be run automatically based on preset schedules. It also has many built-in features that handle the scheduling, retention and versioning, security, speed optimization, incremental backup, data integrity, reporting, etc.

All these are the values that CloudBacko provides so that you don't need your IT staff to write your own backup scripts. All the scripts, the functions and features you need are all included in CloudBacko. Check out all the features from here.
