Yosemite Server Backup performs disk-to-disk and disk-to-tape backups of Windows and Linux machines and performs complete system restores in the event of system failure. It supports a wide variety of tape-loading and cartridge devices and robotic libraries for implementing multi-tiered backup and archiving strategies. Agents read and write user data and system configuration settings for server applications, enabling "bare metal" disaster recovery in the event of system failure. Yosemite Server Backup provides a centralized cross-platform graphical user interface to schedule backups, manage media, and initiate restore and recovery operations.
Where to Start
Yosemite Backup Server must be installed on every machine whose data you want to protect. Review system requirements and make sure that you have downloaded the edition that is suitable for your site. See Deployment for further information. (You have 60 days to evaluate the program and obtain a license.) Review the setup considerations in Getting Started. For installation instructions, see Install Yosemite Server Backup.
