P5 Backup2Go can be installed and used within minutes.
It lets the laptop initiate its own backup as soon as a connection to the server can be established.
P5 Backup2Go tolerates interruptions during the backup process. If a workstation or laptop is shut down or loses the network connection, the backup process resumes automatically as soon as it is on-line again. Partial backups are fully functional.
The administrator can allow users to restore their own data, from a single file all the way to a full file system restore (only Mac). The intuitive browser-based interface lets you restore with a few mouse clicks. The backup index is displayed as a timeline. Users can view their file's history and retrieve a backed-up version from days, weeks or months before.
There are no limits on possible growth. You can add further P5 products, hardware, media etc. smoothly.
Since files are continuously backed up, even during long out-of-office periods, the volume of data for each backup increment remains small.
Hence, network and server loads are kept to a minimum.
Files can be encrypted during transfer over a network and/or on the storage media.
In addition, P5 also backs up access rights and ACLs of a file.
The data is only unencrypted when restored to the workstation. This protects files against unauthorized access after a restore.
Access to view a workstation's index of saved files is managed via group-based access rights.
P5 Backup2Go runs invisibly in the background. Administrators can limit network bandwidth and CPU use.
Workstation templates allow flexible configuration of open or closed backup policies. Small and large workgroups can be handled accordingly to their specific needs.
Scalability is easy since one template can be used by 10, 100 or more workstations.
