Managing and protecting business data is an integral part of any IT Service Management operation. MVP Cloud Backup provides a multi-platform (Windows and Mac OS X) online folder
and file backup service based on incremental and point in time changes. MVP Cloud Backup is a desirable IT service option and companion to any current local backup solution.
MVP Cloud Backup provides a flexible interface for defining an unlimited amount of backup policies.
• Folder Inclusion or Exclusion
• File Inclusion or Exclusion
• File Wildcarding
• Exclude based on File Size
• Bandwidth Throttle for day or specific time range
Backup Profiles can be assigned and scheduled to an individual machine or group of machines. Additional file exclusions can be also assigned for a specific machine. MVP Cloud Backup includes a variety of scheduling options.
• Recurrence by month, week, day, hour, minute or once
• Start Date and Time
• Exclude if machine is offline
• Power up if offline through Wake-On Lan and vPro technology
• Exclude backup processing during specific time range
Once an initial upload has taken place, subsequent backups will be uploaded and stored incrementally.

• Point in Time
A built-in Dashboard highlights key backup status metrics and provides the ability to directly select any machine that is part of the metric to ease troubleshooting.

STORAGE AND SECURITY
The initial release of MVP Cloud Backup will be based on Amazon’s S3 secure storage, a SAS70 Type II compliant solution. Amazon promises 99.9% availability and robust redundant stores on multiple devices across multiple facilities.
An easy-to-use interface provides administrators the ability to restore files based on specific backup instance.
• File Tree Browser layout
• Folder and File selection
• Overwrite Existing Option
• Select and Restore
• Same or Different Location
REPORTING AND ALERTS
A bundled set of report templates allow the administrator to view and share backup status and results. Alerts can also be configured to notify key personal when backups have completed or if they failed.
CONTINUOUS DATA PROTECTION
Continuous Data Protection explicitly monitors files for changes and will push any changes made to the files on a timeframe defined by a configurable checkpoint, providing fine granularity for recovery.
MVP Cloud Backup provides an optional Bandwidth Throttling mechanism, which determines how much outgoing/incoming data traffic will be allowed for the MVP Cloud Backup, in order to manage network load and minimize congestion.
Administrators have the option to manage their online storage usage directly within the MVP VSA including file deletion by machine or machine group.
