There are many ways to deploy WholesaleBackup, but in its simplest fashion, a backup server is deployed with storage adequate to hold the backup data. Each client that will back up to the server will run the WholesaleBackup client software, which will securely connect to the server and transmit the data.
The backup server uses the LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) stack for the reporting and administrative portals, so is extensible and highly performant. Because the server technologies are licensed under a variety of free licensing schemes, the licensing costs for the server operating system and base software are virtually nothing.
The communications is via a modified SSH, one of the most secure and trusted secure communications methods available, and widely in use by government agencies and other security-conscious organizations. WholesaleBackup adds self-tuning batching, compression, and differentials to speed data transfer without requiring manual intervention.
The WholesaleBackup Online Backup Client installs on Windows machines, and provides a simple interface and focuses on fast installation and configuration to enable end-users to self-deploy in minutes. The client can backup very large datasets (2+ million files), has a very low memory and processor footprint, and is built to take on your branding from the outset.
