All platforms and common databases supported
GUDRS™ supports all leading operating systems which can run Java2 Runtime Environment 1.4.1 or above, which are essentially all operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac, NetWare, NAS devices, etc. GUDRS™ comes with modules specially designed for backing up common database applications, including Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Lotus Notes/Domino, Oracle and MySQL. This allows you to back up all these databases professionally as recommended by their respective software vendor easily without requiring you to know how it works technically behind the scenes. If the databases or applications you are using in-house are not listed here, don’t worry. Our extensible and easily configurable command line tools enable you to add custom backup logics to basic backup operation through simple scripting.
Support of Windows Active Directory
The support of Windows Active Directory (or LDAP) allows user backup accounts to be created automatically and backup quota to be shared by a group of users. Aided by Windows Active Directory, system administrators are able to customize the default backup settings for different users or user groups. It even allows client-side backup settings to be overridden by server settings at the system level, user level, and backup set level. This flexible and highly extensible architecture makes complex requirements on system and user administration an easy task for novice administrators.
Backup 500GB in one night
Our seed load and in-file delta technologies enable backup of a large volume of data to be completed in a very short period of time. The seed load feature allows backup of the large volume of data to a local external hard drive, which we will send to you as part of the service. With our proprietary in-file delta technology, the original file is required to be backed up once only, i.e. in the first backup job. Subsequently, only the changes within the file since the previous backup are required to be backed up.
For example, for a file that is as large as 500GB, you can simply seed load the full backup to a local external hard drive and then deliver the seed loaded data in the external hard drive to GID, which we then load into the backup server. Since only the changes made within the 500GB file, normally less than 1%, i.e. 5GB, of the original file size, are required to be backed up again, this amount of data can be backed up easily to the server via the Internet or Intranet in one night. As a result, instead of having to back up 500GB everyday, you just need to back up 5GB everyday to keep the file up-to-date on the backup server.
