Server Backup Manager (SBM) is a fast, affordable, and high-performance backup software for Linux and Windows servers in both physical and virtual environments. Using SBM's Disk Safe format, R1Soft provides virtual full backup storage. The Disk Safe optimizes storage and allows users to keep recovery points longer, while saving space over existing full or incremental backups. Backup windows take only a few minutes using R1Soft's block-level Continuous Data Protection™ (CDP) technology. These capabilities ensure unique disk blocks are stored only once, even across thousands of recovery points.
