What can Reliable Data Protection back up in it's file based services?

The backup manager can currently back up any of the following:

Files

The backup manager can back up ordinary files and directories, automatically compressing and encrypting them before transmission.

Oracle 8i / 9i

The backup manager will backup your Oracle database by connecting to the Oracle database using SQL*NET over TCP/IP, and either copying all files or simply all archived log files to a temporary directory. Those files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.

Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 / 2000

The backup manager will back up your Microsoft SQL Server database(s) by issuing a database / transaction log backup command to Microsoft SQL Server to backup each database to a backup file (*.bak file) and save it in a temporary directory. Those files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.

Lotus Domino / Notes

The backup manager will back up your Lotus Domino server by copying all files and database to a temporary directory. Filled log extents are also copied to the temporary directory, and the Domino server is notified of their availability for reuse. These files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.

In the case of backing up a Notes client, only the files will be copied, compresed, encrypted, and transmitted.

Microsoft Exchange Server

Microsoft Exchange Server 2000/2003 stores its data in Windows Active Directory as well as in its databases. To fully backup a Microsoft Exchange Server 2000/2003, you will need to back up the Windows System State, Microsoft Information Store, Microsoft Site Replication Service, and Microsoft Key Management Service (Exchange 2000 only).

When running a full Database Backup, the Windows System State and all exchange databases will be backed up to a temporary directory, and backed up transaction logs will be removed from the Exchange Server. The files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.

When running a Transaction Log Backup, only new transaction logs generated since the last backup will be copied, compressed, encrypted, and transmitted.

Windows System State

The backup manager will backup your Windows system state to a temporary directory. These files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.

Individual Mail Level for Microsoft Exchange Server

Mail Level Backup for Microsoft Exchange Server is not designed to fully protect an Exchange server, but to facilitate easy backup and fast restore of individual emails, contacts, calendars, tasks, etc. The mail level restore cannot fully recover the Information Store after a disaster. If used, a mail level backup must be utilized in conjunction with a full Information Store Backup, in order to fully protect the exchange server.

MySQL Server

The backup manager will backup your MySQL databases, either local or external to a temporary directory. Those files are then compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to the backup server.
