The Silver-lining Protect service offers modular backup and restore services. It removes the administrative headache of managing backup software and hardware, enabling your staff to concentrate on more important tasks.
With CloudCreator you can enable or disable the Silver-lining Protect service on your VMware or Azure Stack virtual machines (VMs). You can view the last 7 days of backup history directly from the VM controls menu within CloudCreator. Further actions can be performed in Silver-lining Protect's Admin Console, a web-based user interface for administration tasks.
The Admin Console provides streamlined procedures for ad-hoc data protection and recovery tasks. Here, you can perform file/folder or database level restores, or run ad-hoc backups of systems. As well as monitoring backup or restore jobs, the reports available via the dashboard or reports sections provide greater clarity on the level of protection of your systems.
Note: Some menu items within the Admin Console are intentionally not enabled for use and may be removed without warning. This does not impact the information in this guide.
The features of Silver-lining Protect include:
- Enable and disable image level backups on servers
- File data restores of agent level backups of servers
- SQL or Oracle database restores
- Ad-hoc backups of servers
