Synoptek DraaS™ client and server backup applications perform together to achieve the ultimate data protection solution.

Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software

 

The Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software is designed for the backup and restore of data from and to a computer. Users can create, schedule and run backup tasks. They can also restore data, which they backed up before.

 

The Client Software can fully automate the backup process, eliminating any human interventions and reducing cost of ownership. The Client Software comprises application plug-ins that make it very easy to backup Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Favourites and the Windows System State, on PC-level. Moreover, on Server-level, the Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software can make ‘hot backups’ of MS Exchange Server, MS SQL Server, and MySQL databases. The Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux-platforms.

 

Secure data in 3 steps
The Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software allows you to make a backup of all critical data from a desktop, laptop or server in 3 simple steps.

 

Step 1 : Installation
You need to install the Synoptek DraaS™ Client Software on a PC, laptop or server. A Setup Wizard will guide you through the installation process that is quite simple and takes less than 5 minutes.

 

Step 2 : Configure backup
When the Client software is executed, the Backup Wizard is activated automatically. Step-by-step, this wizard will help you create a backup task. An extended task is created and scheduled in just a couple of minutes.

 

Step 3 : Sit back and relax
After the task is created, it will run through its schedule. During the first backup all data is encrypted, compressed and sent to the Backup Server. The next backups will be sub-sequential; all data is compared with the last version stored on the Backup Server. Only new or modified files are sent to the Backup Server, making the solution quick and secure. After completion of a backup, a report is sent by e-mail. You are always up-to-date on the status of your backups.
