Disaster Prevention & Recovery


CentreStack adds version control and offsite cloud backup of file shares and permissions to your file servers. Furthermore, it detects and stops ransomware before severe damage happens and restores your data from previous snapshots and to previous dates. Finally, it retains detailed audit trace and file change history for compliance.

Challenges of Traditional Backup Solutions


It’s important to have a backup of critical business data but the combined costs of backup appliances, cloud storage, and licenses for users, servers and endpoints can be prohibitive for small businesses.

Licensing Costs

Avoid the added licensing costs for file servers and user devices

Hardware Costs

Avoid the high costs of backup appliances

Remote Devices

Remote devices are not always connected to on-premise backup appliances.

Permission Backup

Avoid the loss of folder permissions typical with traditional backup

Restore Time

Minimize restore time with snapshots and user initiated recovery of any file or folder.

Data Privacy

Avoid data privacy concerns with self-hosted backup servers for any storage service.

Disaster Prevention and Recovery Benefits


Businesses can save money and protect their data by using CentreStack software to create a backup appliance on-premises or by leveraging a hosted backup solution managed by their service provider. In either case, they’ll receive the following benefits:

Backup File Shares

CentreStack automatically migrates file shares into team folders for remote access. Snapshots of these team folders are then backed up by the CentreStack server and replicated to the CentreStack backup cloud or a user-defined storage service.

Backup and Restore Permissions

CentreStack backups provide the unique ability to restore team folders with their original permissions. This saves significant time and money since NTFS permissions do not need to be manually recreated when recovering data.

Backup Endpoints and Devices

Continuously backup remote file servers and endpoints by leveraging CentreStack's long standing HTTPS communication channels that were designed from the ground up to simulate uninterrupted connectivity.

Reduce Costs

CentreStack licensing is user-based. There are no charges per device. In addition to savings from the licensing model, it's a free, software-based backup appliance that consolidates access, collaboration and backup solutions.

Maintain Control

Data can be stored on-premises, in a storage service managed by a service provider, or in CentreStack’s hosted environment. Data location is determined by business needs, or in consultation with a service provider

Version Control

File change history is automatically captured by creating new versions of files for each set of changes. Users can easily manage or restore older versions from a simple interface that’s accessible via right click in a mapped drive or with similar actions on a mobile device or browser.

Block Ransomware

CentreStack blocks the spread of ransomware by detecting when file changes are made faster than humanly possible. Administrators define a change frequency threshold and client devices are quarantined when that threshold is exceeded. This simple heuristic has proved to be extremely effective in preventing the spread of ransomware.

Easily Restore

File change history is automatically captured by creating new versions of files for each set of changes. Users can easily manage or restore older versions from a simple interface that’s accessible via right click in a mapped drive or with similar actions on a mobile device or browser.

Maintain Compliance

Use auditing and reporting to monitor file and system usage. Admins can perform audits of GDPR and HIPAA compliance or keep track of any changes that have been made to individual files.

MSP-friendly, multi-tenant, white labeled solution

CentreStack provides a white labeled platform that makes it easy for MSP partners to build a private cloud file server solution based on infrastructure from Amazon, Azure or Wasabi.
