R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) utilizes block-level Continuous Data Protection technology to transform your backup process into a fast and efficient walk in the park. By working below the filesystem, IO usage for backups is minimized and critical resources are kept free to serve clients. The company’s technology shrinks backup windows to predictable and small increments by tracking the changes to data in real-time, providing the freedom to schedule backups when needed to meet client requirements. Because R1Soft SBM is a multi-tenant solution built for hosting providers, the backup solution, built with privacy and security in mind, provides self-service restores and scales to meet the needs of multiple clients.
