“GBS backup is a RedHat partner, with access to RedHat resources: Software, documentation and training”
We analyse the customers situation, and incorporate their backup requirements in a customized backup solution
fully documented and tested



VDO deduplication is used to detect duplicate blocks on disk
This typically saves 60-80% of diskspace

The Permanent backup only occupies a few % of the original diskspace due to VDO and hardlink deduplication


How it works

The backups are organized in an Overnight backup” and “Permanent backups”
The Overnight backup show the status of the last executed backup, no history.
The Permanent (Historical) backup saves the Overnight backup and keeps a daily, weekly and monthly history copy.

Overnight backups are executed at nighttime during the backup window (1-6am). Permanent backups run between two remote GBS backup servers (so don’t affect the backup clients), and are executed during the day. 
Permanent backup depends on the network throughput between the backup servers and may need a longer time to complete

These Overnight/Permanent backups include the following, depending on what needs to be the customer environment:

  • Image and file backup for various Linux distributions
  • VM backup with RSYNC or snapshots
  • Backup for network equipment
  •  Backup of the Virtualization infrastructure (KVM hosts, VMware hosts, OpenStack nodes

Disaster recovery

Disaster recovery is included for Linux Bare metal and Virtual Machines, using the same mechanism.
Disaster recovery can restore a Linux system in 10-20 minutes from a selected backup (Overnight backup or a  Historical backup)


Cloud based

Cloud based backup can be deployed, preferably when two or more sites are available.
Geo-redundancy in this case guarantees the backup availability in case of a site disaster.

Virtual Backup

A virtual backup server will backup the virtual environment and Virtual Machines, but also the Virtual infrastructure, network equipment and Bare metal servers.
The backups can be stored offsite via Bacula, or using a remote GBS backup server (Geo-redundancy).

Hybrid (BAre Metal)

The hybrid backup server is a hardware based backup solution, it offloads the backups outside the original application environment.
So that the backups are still available in case of a disaster in the application environment.
The hybrid backup server can also be deployed as a geo-redundant system.

Centralized backup

For Multiple sites, we offer a Centralized backup server that centralizes all the Local backups onto one central location.
This setup offers redundancy and de-duplication advantages, as all permanent backups can be deduplicated in one filesystem.
