Daisy Chain Backup
Companies that offer backup services to your client often want to create two sets of backups. One that is
closer to the machines that need to be backed up and second across the Internet.
Consider the following scenario
In this scenario, three machines backup to a central server on the same LAN. A second copy
of the backup is made across the Internet to a server running on your end.
- Syncrify Client is installed on Client A, Client B and Client C, which will backup data
to Server S1 running a Syncrify Server on the same LAN.
- Besides running Syncrify Server, Server S1 is also running a Syncrify Client,
which connects to a Syncrify Server running on Server S2
- Essentially, data is backed up twice. Once on Server S1 and then again on Server S2
You will need 4 Syncrify licenses in the above example. Three license for Client A, B
license for Server S1
If the network between Server S1
and Server S2
is fast, consider setting them up
