Find a Remote Backup Solution

Enterprises traditionally use on-premise appliances to store their backup files from servers and desktops on the corporate network. While this is a secure solution because the data is stored in the appliance, access to the backup data from remote devices is a challenge. Remote devices are not always within the corporate network, and the VPN of remote devices is not always available to meet specific backup schedules.

There are cloud backup solutions such as Carbonite and CrashPlan that can back up remote devices directly to the cloud. However, the backup destination is controlled by a third party. This becomes problematic when corporate policies prevent data replication and storage at third-party controlled locations.

Control and Own Your Backup Storage

In the traditional enterprise backup model, everything is owned by the internal IT department, including the backup appliance. This is fine for compliance and regulation until third-party cloud backup solutions are introduced. When company-owned data is backed up to cloud storage services, data ownership is redefined and the compliance and regulation procedures must be updated to include the new cloud storage backup services.

A good solution is to continue to own the backup appliances and own the definition of a backup destination storage service, including nearby file servers or company-owned Amazon S3 or Windows Azure storage accounts. A self-hosted backup server gives you the control and ownership you want.

The Solution

CentreStack cloud backup solves both of these problems. First, the CentreStack server maintains connection with remote PCs and file servers over HTTPS/SSL, so the connection is always on. This means that remote PCs and file servers can always use CentreStack's communication and data channel to back up via the CentreStack backup appliance. And because CentreStack cloud backup is storage agnostic and you can back up to a storage service under your control, you can now provide continuous backups of your file servers and endpoints to a storage service under your control.

Step 1: Select Your Backup Destination

Plan where you want to set your backup storage destination. This can be in the Amazon cloud, the Azure cloud, or another data center of your choice.

Step 2: Setup CentreStack's Cloud-Backup

Turn on CentreStack's cloud backup feature. During configuration, set the backup storage service to your chosen location.

Step 3: Local File Server Backup

Your local file server is backed up to the location you selected using the CentreStack server.

Step 4: Stable Connection via HTTPS/SSL

Both remote PCs and file servers have agent software that connects them to the CentreStack server over HTTPS/SSL for backup and restore.


CentreStack works like an on-premise backup appliance. On the one hand, it has connectivity to remote devices and on-premise file servers. On the other, it connects to self-defined cloud storage destinations for backup. In addition, the usual mobile remote access and secure file sharing features are still present.
