Roderick Aguilar, CIO, Coffey Geosciences said about
"After the MyDoom.F virus destroyed our server
in one of our branches we were back up in 4 hours with Snapshot EFB
instead of several days with tape backups. We have 11 sites and 650
seats and all our files are backed every day and can be accessed
directly by our users if they need any file via an internet browser. We
have got rid of our tape nightmares and we only need to change the disk
caddy every week. I get notified by automatic email daily if there is a
problem at any of our backups. Now, I do not have to rely on the staff
at the remote sites to change the tapes every day and report . We have
been using Snapshot EFB for 2 years and we are very happy with it."

Snapshot.EFB backup software eliminates the problems
with traditional tape based backup systems and even the new backup over
the internet systems (Remote Backup Systems).
What’s so good about Snapshot.EFB?
- Peace of Mind. No more
incremental backups. The system does a Full Backup of every PC/Server
every night on your network. For my company I am backing up my
PC/laptops every night and my production and development servers every
Monday night. I have increased my peace of mind as I know I can restore
any file from any day in the last 6 months.
- Throw out your tape drive.
No more worrying which tape the file you need is on or if the tape has
degraded. All data is stored on 120 gb ide drives that are in hot swap
removable caddies. Backups are automatically synchronised to the disk
drive in the caddy. The 120 gb disk drive can last for 6 to 12 months
depending on the files that are changing. i.e. large database files
that change every day are going to take more space than small files.
- Small data volumes means
less data movement across the network. Compression and smart backup
algorithm ensures only small amounts of data get backed up every night.
A file is only stored once on the backup server if it does not change.
This means the first backup is slower and large, then subsequent
backups are small and fast. Backups over wan’s and
vpn’s are now affordable and won’t use up your
- Image Backups. You can
also do PC drive image backups for the first backup which means you can
do a full image restore to any computer.
- Less Administration Time.
Users can restore their own files. They can connect to the backup
server via a web browser and navigate to the file they want restored.
They do not have access to other backups on the server.
- Backup different Operating Systems.
If you need to backup Windows, UNIX or Linux then this is the system
- Easy to use. You use an
internet browser to select and schedule backups and restores.
- Data Safety. The 120gb
removable is kept off site in a shock proof water proof case. If you
have 2 caddies rotating offsite then you have a high level of data
- Inexpensive Data Archives.
When the 120gb ide drive is full, you can store it as an 6 month
archive and buy a new one for $130, or clear it down and start again.
- Backup Database Servers.
Shuts down database servers before a backup and restarts them after a
- Scalable and Stable
Snapshot.EFB server will backup 5 to 250 computers every night. It runs
on the rock solid and free Linux operating system. It will also run on
Windows Servers and other UNIX servers.
- Fast restores. Files
take as long to restore as it does to copy them to your PC over your
- Internet Support. If
something does go wrong with the backup system we can support you over
- Price. Similar to
equivalent tape backup solutions.
