GLOSSAY & TERMS
eFolder Replibit has a robust set of features to provide a secure and reliable Backup and Disaster Recovery platform that is simple to use and maintain.
Image Based Backups
Image-Based backups make a complete copy of a protected system including all operating system files and boot records necessary to recover a system in the event of a disaster. The Agent captures all protected system disks at the block level, enabling complete system restores from any recovery point on the Appliance or Vault without the need for any lengthy Operating System reloads.
Incremental Change Capture
After the initial base image, all successive backups capture only incremental changes into a new snapshot of that point in time. This provides for very fast, lightweight backups that can be scheduled to occur more frequently than traditional backups (as frequently as every 15 minutes). Individual backups are also much smaller than traditional backups, facilitating easy off-site replication with modest Internet bandwidth.
Chain-Free (No Snapshot Dependencies)
Each incremental snapshot is an independent recovery point on the Appliance or Vault. There are no time consuming roll-ups that can become corrupted or otherwise break a dependency chain to cause recovery failures or force reseeding of base images.
Partners can provide their own Branding and Logo's to customize the product, and create their own Branded Business Solution.
Integrates directly with ConnectWise for ticketing and billing. Supports two-way ticketing status, and synchronization to any service board. Integrates with billing to provide flat monthly cost plus off-site cloud per-gigabyte usage tracking and billing.
Support for alerts by Email to simplify integration with other PSA and monitoring tools. Provides Email alert management and filtering by alert class to reduce ticketing noise.
All components of Replibit can be configured to automatically receive and deploy updates.
Recovery Point data at the Customer site can be asynchronously replicated to one or more off-site Vaults, providing protection against total loss-of-site disasters.
USB Seeding of Off-Site Base Image
When enabling replication, it is optional to use a USB seed disk to transport the initial full backup image, so that large disks do not have to be replicated over the Internet. When enabling seeding, subsequent Increment backups are delivered immediately to the Vault, and will be imported once the USB seed disk has been received and imported.
Note: Direct WAN replication is very robust. Interrupted transfers will be resumed where they last left off, making seeding necessary only for very large base images, or for sites with poor Internet bandwidth.
Export to VHD/VHDX/VMDK/VDI/RAW
Any recovery point can be exported as a virtual disk file, to either local or USB storage connected to the Appliance or Vault. Supported formats offer easy integration with VMware, Hyper-V (Gen1 and Gen2), VirtualBox, Xen, KVM and other Hypervisor platforms.
iSCSI Target Support
Each recovery point may be exposed as a raw iSCSI disk volume in order to facilitate large data recovery operations or to provide a set of iSCSI disks to an external Hypervisor and act as a temporary SAN replacement, providing instant recovery of systems in your Enterprise virtual environment.
The Appliance or Vault can export NFS shares to provide shared storage for your virtual platform and to allow access to exported Virtual Disk Images. This feature is very useful for recovering to an external virtual platform, or from a failed SAN when your virtual hosts are still fine.
Central Licensing Server
All licensing and customer account configuration are managed by the Partner from a central licensing server web portal at https://licensing.replibit.com Refer to the eFolder Replibit Licensing Portal Guide for complete details on using the License Portal.
Create multiple backup schedules running at staggered intervals or manually defined times to distribute backup traffic network load. Create granular off-site replication scheduling with integrated bandwidth management to prevent Internet bottlenecking during business hours.
ZFS Storage Pool
eFolder Replibit leverages the advanced data protection, flexible storage technology and snapshot features of the ZFS filesystem, providing for robust data integrity, reliable snapshot replication, and native compression.
MBR and UEFI
eFolder Replibit supports both legacy MBR style and modern UEFI BIOS systems for backup, recovery, and virtualization.
Securely access and manage all of your devices and protected systems from the central Management Server. Managed devices establish a secure tunnel with the management server without requiring custom firewall rules or port forwarding at the Customer site.
Support for Physical and Virtual Environments
eFolder Replibit fully supports protection and disaster recovery for both Physical and Virtual environments.
Bare Metal Recovery
Leveraging our suite of easy to use tools and utilities, quickly recover your protected systems directly back to bare metal servers once your failed hardware has been replaced.
eFolder Replibit Recovery Toolkit
More than just a bare metal recovery suite, our eFolder Replibit Recovery Toolkit provides a platform to diagnose, troubleshoot, repair, and recover data from any offline system.
Failed Protected systems can be recovered instantly by leveraging eFolder Replibit's built-in Hypervisor to boot any recovery point as a virtual machine directly on the backup Appliance, or by exporting the protected systems disks as iSCSI targets to an existing virtual server infrastructure.
Consolidate multiple Appliances or Vaults into a single management cluster to aggregate reporting and license usage. (Clustering of management functions only; does not apply to storage pools)
Nightly Boot Checks
Perform a nightly boot check of the latest recovery point on each protected system. Each machine is booted as a virtual guest directly on the eFolder Replibit device, and a screenshot capture is viewable on the particular device, in the Management Portal and/or delivered via email, and/or ConnectWise ticketing.
Easy Data Migration
Protected system recovery points and metadata may easily be migrated between Appliances and Vaults to preserve retention during hardware upgrades and/or replacements.
