P5 Backup lets you back up server data to disk and tape, as well as the cloud. The module backs up and restores cross-platform on Mac, Windows, Linux, Synology, QNAP and NETGEAR. It works seamlessly with P5 Synchronize and P5 Archive, allowing broad data availability options.

Server backup to disk, tape and the cloud
P5’s server backup is browser based and allows easy configuration, administration and monitoring – regardless of your location. The backup will include all your data as well as extended attributes, permissions, resource forks etc.
P5 Backup software stores your data in a platform-neutral format, allowing you to back up and restore data from and to any platform.
Archiware’s block-direct positioning allows for fast restore, no sequential seeking needed. Snapshots offer restores from a particular point in time. The administrator can allow users to search, browse and/or restore from the backup, making Archiware P5 even more flexible to the users' needs.
Files can be encrypted during transfer over a network and/or on the storage media. In addition, P5 also backs up access rights and ACLs of a file. The data is only unencrypted when restored to the workstation. This protects files against unauthorized access after a restore. Access to view a workstation's index of saved files is managed via group-based access rights.
P5 Backup is able to identify renamed folders with unchanged files inside and update index with new folder position without necessitating re-saving of files/folders contained within.
For example, if a top-level folder on a piece of storage were to be renamed, we avoid needing to re-save potentially many TB's inside, saving time and storage costs.
True Incremental Backup
Incremental Backup only backs up files which have been added or modified since the last backup run. Since files are continuously backed up, even during long out-of-office periods, the volume of data for each backup increment remains small. Hence, network and server loads are kept to a minimum.
As of P5 Version 7.0 full backups are only required when writing to tape, to allow whole LTO tapes to be recycled and reused. The 'progressive' backup technique can be used indefinitely, resulting in faster and more efficient backup to cloud object storage.
Real security for your data can only be achieved through offsite backup. By cloning your backup on a second set of tapes or disks, you are ready for offsite storage for real disaster prevention. Ideally, this second set should be stored in a safe place and not in your primary office. Encryption options protect your data during transfer and on the media.
Perform Dry-Run of a Backup
P5 will compare storage to be backed up with index and report total number of new/changed/moved files. Allows anticipation of the length of the required backup window and number of tapes/storage that will be required for the backup to complete.
