Microlite BackupEDGE

Web Interface

BackupEDGE™ is a high performance, easy to use, fully integrated backup, restore and bare metal disaster recovery software product for Linux® and UNIX® operating systems. It manages the entire process of protecting critical data while shielding the user from the headaches involved in directly managing individual actions.

It supports the industry’s widest variety of storage devices, including tape drives, Blu-ray Disc™, DVD and CD writers, tape changers, libraries and autoloaders, and USB and SATA flash drives, disk drives and cartridges.

It also fully supports backups to network-attached storage (NAS) devices, servers and appliances over the local network or Internet, as well as Internet backups to the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) web storage cloud.

BackupEDGE uses a modern, standards-based data format that allows for very long pathnames, very high compression ratios, ACLs (access control lists), multiple archive verification strategies and highly secure data encryption. Its modular architecture providing great flexibility in implementing and maintaining backup strategies.

The product has an industry exclusive tri-mode management interface (called EDGEMENU). The interface runs on the graphical desktop or can be enabled as a web service and run remotely from a Java-equipped web browser. It may also be run in legacy character mode from the character console or from terminals and terminal emulators.



RecoverEDGE™ is automated disaster recovery (DR) software allowing complete bare metal recovery after a hardware failure without having to re-install the operating system, configure device drivers, etc. It comes free with the Linux, UnixWare® 7, OpenServer™ 6 and OpenServer 5 versions of BackupEDGE.

RecoverEDGE custom built boot media and a BackupEDGE backup (which on some archive types can be combined into a "bootable backup") are all that is necessary to recover from a hardware or software catastrophe.

Boot media types include:
