Data Seeding

Locally backup data and server system states.

A local process used to capture all required data and server system states for both physical and virtual servers. The process avoids the lengthy process of uploading a large amount of data over the internet. Instead, data is copied and encrypted to a local storage device (e.g. an external USB drive or NAS) which is then delivered to our data center where it is loaded to the appropriate user account. This method saves the user time, bandwidth as well as server and network saturation.

This process of local external backup is highly effective for our cloud backup solutions. Our backup solutions support incremental and/or differential backups, therefore we perform the first backup using seed load technology. Afterwards all incremental backups capture only new and changed data, therefore reducing the amount of data that has to be backed up over the Internet.

For clients that are migrating large server environments to our cloud server platform, we can create and store server snapshots/images to a local storage device and then load upload the images and provision the servers with the snapshots that we locally seeded.

What Our Customers are Saying

Our server environment changes almost daily as we power down, power up and scale compute resources to meet rigorous release criteria and timelines. Optimizing this aspect of our business operations was part of what drove us to evaluate Cloud. The second part is strategic. Once the business is running on the Cloud, ZIM will leverage Cloud to make software tools available to customers as a PaaS. This is the end game.
