      Full and incremental backups with CBT

      The solution allows you to perform both full and incremental backups, giving you flexibility in managing your backup strategy. Full backups capture the entire OpenStack environment, while incremental backups capture only the changes since the last backup, reducing storage requirements and backup time.

      Granular recovery

      Storware Backup and Recovery enables you to restore individual files, virtual machines (VMs), volumes, or entire OpenStack instances. This granular recovery capability ensures that you can recover specific data quickly, minimizing downtime and data loss.

      Deduplication and compression

      To optimize storage utilization, Storware Backup and Recovery incorporates deduplication and compression techniques. This reduces the amount of storage space required for backups while minimizing network traffic during backup and recovery operations.

      Disaster recovery capabilities

      Storware Backup and Recovery enables disaster recovery by allowing you to replicate backups to remote locations or secondary data centers. This ensures that your OpenStack environment can be restored in the event of a catastrophic failure or site-wide outage.

      Automated scheduling and retention

      The solution offers flexible scheduling options, allowing you to automate backup jobs based on your organization’s needs. You can define retention policies to retain backups for specific periods, ensuring compliance with data retention regulations.
