Multi-Platform Server Backup? Here’s What You Should Know!

As information technology makes advances, a plethora of platforms, multi-purpose databases and virtual machines have impregnated the corporate world. Even the smallest of business are now using custom operating systems and multiple servers – all of which need to be backed up.

Is your company prepared to make multi-platform backups? Here are some things that you should take into consideration:

Number And Size of Servers

Analyzing this will determine the amount of space you need to allocate for your backups. It is important to understand that the backup requirements aren’t essentially the total space on your clients’ server(s). Before you initiate a backup, you usually compress the files. Images and texts are relatively reduced in size. That way, when the data is finally transferred from the servers onto the data center, it actually ends up taking lesser space.

Types of Operating System

Generally, backup software designed by vendors may fail to factor in the many operating systems. Companies usually develop support for one system that cannot be applied on another. Furthermore, if a particular company is running a single OS on all 12 of its virtual machines, it maintains the consistency of the application, making backup much simpler and timely.

Application, Database & Server Type

SMEs operating today make use of various applications and databases to enhance the productivity of their work. The degree of specialization and complexity may vary with each virtual machine. For instance, running a Hyper-V backup may require a 24/7 cloud storage. If all of these VMs were given a backup simultaneously, it could lead to a traffic jam – causing a mass level system failure. You as the administrator may have to manually slow down or stagger the backup to manage it effectively.

The case is similar with a MySQL backup software or Exchange. Therefore, it is essential that you select a backup service vendor who can provide you with the training and support.

Finally, ensure that your service provider develops and offers a range of backup modules for all kinds of platforms, servers and virtual machines. We have developed the following add-on backup modules for AhsayOBM to back up different type of servers:
