Yosemite Server Backup Deployment

The Yosemite Server Backup architecture scales easily from a single server to an enterprise network enabling centralized management across distributed data sources and backup devices.

  • The Master Server provides a centralized management console for data protection and retention policies across multiple backup clients.
  • Backup clients include software for popular file systems, including Windows and Linux, as well as agents for online backup of Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft SharePoint applications.
  • Media Servers provide connectivity to backup devices, including disk volumes, optical disk drives, tape loaders, and robotic tape libraries.

In a single-server model, all three tiers can reside on a single physical server. In distributed environments, the three tiers are generally distributed throughout the network and managed centrally from the Master Server.
