Remote Data Backup Glossary

Backup policy

The procedures and rules you currently use for ensuring adequate data backups are made. This includes the technology and methodology used and the process by which you restore system information from your backup copies.

Backup software

The software applications installed on computers that initiate a backup process. Usually described as the user interface (UI) that allows the person to control the backup procedure remotely.

Backup window

The time period required to complete a backup procedure. Normally, a backup procedure uses system resources that have detrimental effects on system and network performance. Backup windows can be managed to ensure business productivity is minimally affected.

Bandwidth resources

The amount of bandwidth available to facilitate an online backup process. Actual bandwidth needed depends on amount of data being protected, average daily change rate and determined Internet restore time objectives.

Bandwidth usage

Some solutions allow users to adjust how much bandwidth is used during a backup. This can be useful for different times of the day: more bandwidth for quieter times (such as in the evening) and less bandwidth during busy periods.

Block level backup

A backup that only contains the changes to files at a sub-file or block level. Block are smaller than files and therefore reduce the amount of change that needs to be sent to the vaults, but may require longer processing times to identify the changes.

Byte level backup

A backup that only contains the changed bytes of data. Bytes are smaller than blocks and therefore provide the smallest amount of change that can be sent to the vaults, but may require longer processing times to identify the changes.

Cache

A local store of recent backups left on site for fast access. A local cache avoids having to wait for bulk restores to be recovered over the Internet from the vaults.

CDP

Continual Data Protection, where the backup system logs every change to the host system in systematic intervals. This is generally enabled by saving byte or block-level differences rather than file-level differences.

Continual Data Protection

A process through which the backup system logs every change to the host system in systematic intervals. This is generally enabled by saving byte or block-level differences rather than file-level differences.

Data compression

In order to minimize the amount of bandwidth used during a backup, the data is compressed using what is known as a lossless compression algorithm. Essentially, data is packed into a smaller file size.
