/ Centralized Backup

What is Centralized Backup?

Centralized Backup did not released an official version before the TOS 5. This versionhas undergone lengthy development and testing. The TOS 5 has a redesigned Centralized Backup that re-optimizes the user interface, adding several functions and improving user experiences.
Centralized Backup is a professional disaster recovery tool that has been developed for business users. Centralized Backup allows company IT managers to use TNAS as the central backup server without needing to configure each host separatel. TNAS can be employed as the initiator to centrally back up the storage space of internal employee computers, workstations, servers, virtual machines, or the system partition.

Developed for business users

For business users, data security is extremely important, and for IT administrators, it is a huge challenge to make timely backups of various servers and to manage the personal computer data of multiple employees. Centralized Backup combines the needs of business users with the provision of a centralized active-backup solution.

Multi-purpose machine

Running the Centralized Backup on a TNAS device means that only one TNAS device can be used to satisfy the backup requirements of the enterprise for employee computers, servers, file servers, virtual machines, and workstations, thereby greatly reducing tIT investment costs for the enterprise.

Employee computer backup

Unlike general backup tools, Centralized Backup does not require employees to participate in the backup process. IT administrators can initiate backup requests from the server through Centralized Backup's PC backup module, and can actively back up folders on hundreds of employee computers, disk partitions, or system partitions. Centralized Backup offers considerable protection for digital assets scattered on employee computers. This can reduce the workload of IT administrators.

· Supported Versions : Windows 11、10

Server backup

The server is the central nervous system of an enterprise's digital information. The server not only runs a variety of application environments, such as OA, CRM, and ERP, that support business operations, but also stores important business data. Through the server backup function of Centralized Backup, IT administrators can simultaneously backup systems and data of multiple servers to TNAS. When an accident occurs, the abnormal host can be quickly restored,thereby reducing the impact of equipment failure on the business.

· Supported Versions : Windows Server 2022、2019、2016、2012

File server backup

The file server is the storage center of enterprise digital assets. Unexpected power outages, equipment failures, system failures and other crises may lead to the loss of precious digital assets. Through the file server backup function of Centralized Backup, IT administrators can back up the file directories of multiple file servers to TNAS, thus reducing the risk of data loss in the event of a disaster. 

· Supports servers running the SMB and Rsync 3.0 or above versions (Linux) protocols.

Virtual machine storage backup

Centralized Backup supports storage backup of VMware Vshpere and Windows Hyper-V virtual machines. Through the virtual machine backup function of the Centralized Backup, it is possible to initiate the backup of multiple virtual machine clients from TNAS.

· Supported Versions :
· VMware ESXi 8.0、7.0、6.7、6.5
· VMware vCenter 8.0、7.0、6.7、6.5
· Windows Server Hyper-V 2019、2016

Multi-version restore

Centralized Backup provides the backup target multi-version management function. When a disaster occurs, IT administrators can roll back the time of the repository to find the correct backup version to restore to the specified destination host.

In full control

Centralized Backup not only provides users with detailed backup and restore task configuration history, but also offers millions of logs, allowing you to monitor the backup progress and various exceptions throughout the process. By enabling the notification function, administrators can monitor the progress status of backup and restoration in a timely manner.
