Servosity Safe DR Overview

When configuring Servosity DR backups for Servosity Safe, we've tried to simplify the process so that you are able to configure your backups quickly and easily. We want you to rest easy knowing that if you need to restore your client's data, it will be there. To make that happen, we've laid out all of the steps for properly configuring a backup job in these 4 steps:

1. Creating a DR Backup Account:

Creating the backup account in the Servosity Control Panel generates your ShadowProtect license key, and lets you tell us which volumes you'll be backing up, so that we can make sure they're all running smoothly.

2. Creating a ShadowProtect Backup Store:

In order for Servosity One to automatically detect the local backups and replicate them to our cloud, you'll need to follow these steps to make sure the Backup Store is configured correctly.

3. Setting up ShadowProtect for Servosity Safe:

You'll install ShadowProtect SPX on every system that you to backup, and configure all those backups to go to a single Backup Store. The Backup Store can be on any volume that isn't being backed up, but we recommend either a NAS or BDR Server for the best security and resilience.

4. Setting up ImageManager for Servosity Safe:

You'll install ImageManager on one system that you select for managing and uploading your DR images to the Servosity Cloud. If you have a BDR, that is what you'll use. Otherwise you can use any system with network access to the Backup Store.

5. Setting up Servosity One for DR Backups:

Finally you'll install and provision Servosity One on all of the systems you've been working on. Each system running DR backups will be associated with the Backup Account you created for it, and the system that is running ImageManager will be configured to run their DR Upload job.

Once these steps are completed, you'll be all set, running local and cloud backups of all of your systems. There are a lot of steps, but in no time it'll be second nature. If you ever have issues or something doesn't work correctly, please let us know at and we'll be happy to help you out.
