Alibaba Cloud Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) is a simple and cost-effective Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution.
One of the main feature is data de-duplication and compression at the source. This can reduce the amount of data transferred to the cloud. The compression ratio can reach a maximum ratio of 30:1, thus reduce the bandwidth and cloud storage usage.
The most important is data is encrypted before leaving the source server to ensures the data is secure in the cloud.
Alibaba Cloud Hybrid Backup Recovery is an efficient and flexible of backup data to the Alibaba Cloud.
How is Hybrid Backup Recovery works?
After the initial data transfer is complete, only modified backup data is sent based on set intervals. Built-in features such as deduplication, compression, encryption, retention duration and bandwidth limits can help to improve efficiency.
Hybrid Backup Recovery works on physical machines, VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs) and cloud-based VMs.
Hybrid Backup Recovery Architecture
Hybrid Backup Recovery Benefits
Permission management – Using Resource Access Management (RAM), users can be categorized with multiple permission groups
Deduplication and compression – Supports deduplication and compression technologies to reduce the amount of transmitted data and occupied storage.
Backup alerts – alert notification is available, such as when a backup fails or when a client is disconnected from a server.
Management cost – it is a fully managed backup and storage service, without need to worry of hardware procurement, configuration and security.
