The Cloud Backup Product

The Cloud Backup Product  in Ferndale, Michigan by Leonard Bros.

1. Asigra Cloud Backup is comprised of two major components; the DS-Clients and the DS-Systems:

DS-Client

Installed at the end customer’s premises where data needs to be protected. The DS-Client is the collector of the data from all machines, drives, applications and systems on the end customers LAN. The DS-Client software is agentless – it does not need to be installed on every machine or application it backs up. It can run on a dedicated DS-Client machine or on an existing machine on the LAN that it needs to backup. One DS-Client is sufficient to collect and backup all the data from all the servers, desktops, laptops, network or local drives, structured applications and raw files on the entire LAN. It is designed to accommodate a range of heterogeneous network backup requirements and transmits data securely to the DS-System onsite or offsite over the Wide Area Network (WAN). The agentless DS-Client is offered for Windows, Linux or MAC environments.

DS-Mobile Client

Installed on the remote laptop and sends it to the DS-System at the Service Provider’s (SP’s) or private cloud data center. The DSMobile
Client collects data from the remote laptop it resides on. It is designed to accommodate a range of heterogeneous network backup requirements and transmits data securely to the DS-System residing in the datacenter. The DS-Mobile Client has a very light foot print and can be centrally configured and Mass Deployed to any number of laptops within minutes. The agentless DS-Client is offered for Windows environments.

DS-SmartPhone Client

Installed on the smart phone. The Client collects data from the smart phone and sends it to the DS-System at the Service Provider’s (SP’s) or private cloud data center. The DS-SmartPhone Client for Apple iOS can be downloaded from Apple App Store. The DS-SmartPhone Client for Google.

DS-Tablet Client

Installed on the tablet. The DS-SmartPhone Client collects data from the tablet and sends it to the DS-System at the Service Provider’s (SP’s) or private cloud data center. The DS-Tablet Client for Apple iOS can be downloaded from Apple App Store. The DSTablet Client for Google Android can be downloaded from Android Market or Amazon Appstore.

DS-Consumer Client

Installed on the consumer desktop or laptop. The DS-Consumer Client collects data from the consumer desktop or laptop and sends it to the DS-System at the Service Provider’s (SP’s) data center. The DS- Consumer Client can be downloaded from Asigra MSP’s web site.

2. The DS-System,

installed at the Enterprise or MSP’s data center or core of the cloud. The DS-System is the data aggregator. It receives data from all remote DS-Clients. The DSSystem is available in standalone or High Availability (HA) and scalable N+1 configuration.

DS-System

DS-System software maintains, manages and validates the online storage repository where the backed up data transmitted by the DS-Clients is saved. The DS-System is typically located in a secure offsite hosting facility. The storage Architecture for the DS-System may be Direct-Attached-Disk, Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-attached storage (NAS). The DS-System is offered for Windows or Linux.

N+1 DS-System

The N+1 configuration of the DS-System is designed to allow for further scalability of the DS-System as well as to increase the availability of the backup service. The N+1 DS-System offers scalable architecture for more nodes in the N+1 configuration, as well as scalable storage through the Extensible Storage functionality. The DS-System is designed to withstand failures of some of its nodes without interrupting the backup service. All nodes in the N+1 DS-System configuration work together to provide backup and restore services to the same DS-Clients.
As long as half of the N+1 nodes are available, the backups and restores will not be interrupted. Any DS-System from the N+1 configuration can serve (backup, restore, delete, synchronize, validate, etc.) the DS-Clients. The N+1 DS-System is offered for Windows or Linux.

Consumer DS-System

Consumer DS-System software maintains, manages and validates the online storage repository where the backed up data transmitted by the DS-Consumer Clients, DS-Tablet Clients and DS-SmartPhone Clients is saved. Consumer DS-System may be used to provide backup/restore services to one or more DSConsumer Clients under the same accounts or under different accounts. The Consumer DS-System is typically located in a secure offsite hosting facility. The storage Architecture for the Consumer DS-System may be Direct-Attached-Disk, Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-attached storage (NAS). The Consumer DS-System is offered for Windows.

Mobile DS-System

Mobile DS-System software maintains, manages and validates the online storage repository where the backed up data transmitted by the DS- Mobile Clients residing on remote laptops in the field is saved. The Mobile DS-System is typically located in a secure offsite hosting facility. The storage Architecture for the Mobile DS-System may be Direct-Attached-Disk, Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-attached storage (NAS). The Mobile DS-System is offered for Windows or Linux.
