Stargate BackIT is an easy-to-use, reliable backup solution that ensures your important business data is protected and readily available when needed. Data is stored offsite at Stargate's secure datacentre, which protects it from fire, theft and acts of nature that may befall traditional local backup solutions.

How BackIT Works

BackIT consists of two parts—a client application called the BackIT Online Backup Manager (OBM) and a Web-based application known as the BackIT Offsite Backup Server (OBS).

After downloading and installing the OBM client, you select folders and create a schedule using an intuitive Backup Set wizard. A full upload of the current data is made to the server, and then updates are made incrementally at scheduled intervals or anytime through direct manual operation.

Data can be restored at any time using either the OBM client or OBS Web interface.

Simple, Smart Restore—Anywhere, Anytime

BackIT's Web interface allows you to restore your backup files from anywhere at a anytime. Moreover, BackIT provides flexible retention policy settings that allow you to restore snapshots of your data sets at a particular point in time to recover a past version of a file.

Secure Data Storage, Multiple Levels of Protection

Data is encrypted and compressed before being uploaded and stored at Stargate. To further ensure your data's safety, BackIT supports replication to additional servers hosted elsewhere.

Enterprise Level Features

BackIT's advanced capabilities include the ability to backup open files (on supported operating systems), and an In-File Delta option that minimizes the data transfer of larger files by only uploading the modified data blocks.

Specialized Backup Agents for Popular Applications

BackIT has specialized backup agents for a range of applications, namely MS Exchange, MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and Lotus Domino/Notes.
