Common deployment options

The whole Ahsay's solution is with flexible client-server architecture. AhsayCBS server-side centralized management console can be installed on your own backup server hosted in your datacenter, on cloud VM such as Microsoft Azure, or on backup appliances deployed in your customers' offices. Users' backup data can be stored on your own backup server, or on cloud storage such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, etc., or the locally deployed backup appliances. The AhsayOBM / AhsayACB client agents are for installing on the servers, workstations that need to be backed up. With proper configuration, your customers' data will be automatically backed up or replicated to your managed storage.

The following are some common deployment options that our existing partners adopted:
        Option 1: AhsayCBS and backup data hosted in your datacenter
        Option 2: AhsayCBS and backup data hosted in public cloud (hardwareless deployment)
        Option 3: Deploy backup appliance at customer's site and replicate to your datacenter
        Option 4: Deploy backup appliance at customer's site and replicate to dedicated replication appliance

AhsayCBS and backup data hosted on your hardware


Pros Cons
  • Generate extra income from your existing backup server and storage facilities.
  • Customers get two backup copies, one at their local site for fast daily restoration, and the other in your datacenter for disaster recovery.
  • Large initial backup data can be seeded to your backup server as it is under your total control.
  • Your backup server is well protected by the Replication Receiver, which can be easily and quickly converted into a backup server when needed.
  • Fulfill regulatory requirement on keeping backup data within customer's own country.
  • Need to maintain hardware and storage facilities which might be costly for small MSPs.
  • Replication Receiver in your secondary site involves extra maintenance cost.

If you have existing server hardware and storage facilities established in your datacenter, the easiest and the most cost effective way to start offering managed backup service to your end customers is to install and run AhsayCBS centralized management software in your existing hardware, and get your users' backup data stored on your datacenter's storage. Establish an AhsayCBS Replication Receiver in a secondary site to get your primary backup server replicated to this receiver.

On each of your customers' machine, either install AhsayOBM or AhsayACB client backup application. With proper configuration of backup schedules, AhsayOBM or AhsayACB will automatically backup to their local storage (e.g. a file server) and your datacenter.

For large initial backups, instead of backing up through the Internet, you can get the customer to seed the backup from their local machine to a portable hard drive and deliver it to your datacenter so that you can directly copy the seed to your backup server.

For casual data loss caused by accidental deletion, software failure, etc., your customers can quickly restore data from their local backup.

When a severe disaster strikes a customer's site, you can help them rebuild their hardware first, get AhsayOBM or AhsayACB installed on the new hardware, and then restore the backup data from your datacenter onto those new hardware through AhsayOBM and AhsayACB.

To speed up the restoration of large data, you can seed the backed up data to portable hard-drive from your datacenter and deliver it your customer's site instead of going through the Internet.

If your primary backup server failed, you can switch the AhsayCBS Replication Receiver into a backup server within 15 minutes so as to minimize the downtime of your backup service.
