How important is your data?
How much do you value your know-how, economic data, contracts, etc.?
What would happen if you lost this data irrecoverably?
At SOMI Systems, we are convinced that your data is more than just clusters of ones and zeros; it is the heart and soul of your business. Preserving this data is not only a matter of comfort; it becomes a question of survival. Therefore, our solutions are not only secure, but also affordable, flexible and user-friendly. The Kerber Backup Server is a fully-fledged backup system that meets the needs of small and medium businesses and public administration bodies.
The Kerber Backup Server has a user-friendly user interface accessible via browser, similar to the KERBER 2.0 system, which ensures platform independence. Other key features include:
• Compression – supports real-time compression, which allows you to save disk capacity and speed up I/O operations on the target server. The user will ultimately experience faster synchronization of backed-up data.
• Deduplication – can be used to save disk space in case of identical files. Deduplication takes place on the file system block level, which enables KBS to deduplicate a large amount of data, which may initially seem different.
• Quotas and reservations – disk space user quotas and the reservation system ensure 100% availability of allocated disk space to the given user – the user’s quota cannot be occupied by anyone else.
• Time snapshots – a strong tool that makes it possible to travel “back in time” into the history of the user’s backup – whether it is an hour, day, week, or month. This system works on a block level, which means that it saves disk space because only data block differences are saved.
Example: A user works on an MS Office document and finds out that he deleted an important page from the document two hours previously. In this situation, the user of the KBS system can go back in the history of the file (or the entire folder structure) in only a few clicks.
• Administration interface – allows the system administrator to monitor the status of user backups, detailed disk space occupation, and its progress in time, either globally or for a particular user. The administrator can also view backed-up files and the respective time snapshots. It also offers detailed charts about the status and workload of hardware on which KBS runs.
• Supported RAID arrays – Raid 1, Raid 1+0, RaidZ (the same as Raid5, but eliminates the common Raid5 arrays “write hole” error), RaidZ2 (two disks for parity), and RaidZ3 (three disks for parity).
The communication between backed-up workstations, computers and file servers with the Kerber Backup Server is ensured by an independent client installed on the backed-up device.
