The Challenges of Reliable Database Backup

Successful database backups, whether to tape, disk, or optical media, require three things: Accurate point-in-time recovery, no interruption of service, and an easy-to-use solution that makes it happen.

Provides an Accurate Backup
Actian Backup Agent works with third-party backup software to ensure accurate, reliable point-in-time recovery for partial or complete backups.
Protects Your Data Integrity
Keeps files that are changed while a backup is running from impacting data integrity, so you can back up your data any time.  Protection while users are connected, files are in use, or even during peak hours; with no interruption of service.
Intelligent Management
Actian Backup Agent provides reliability and recovery should a server crash occur during a backup session—without any user involvement.
Easy to Install and Use
Simple-to-use set-up via a graphical interface or through configuration of your third-party backup solution for seamless integration.  Actian Backup Agent works behind the scenes for reliable backups, with zero administration.

  • Through a Simple GUI - When Actian Backup Agent is started, the Actian Zen/PSQL database is placed into backup mode.  When the backup is complete, turning it off will return the database to normal operations.
  • Scripted from a Command Line - Simply add start and stop commands to your existing backup software’s pre- and post-commands.  Your backup software will then automatically enable Actian Backup Agent at the appropriate time, guaranteeing consistent and reliable Actian Zen/PSQL database backups for your regularly scheduled jobs
  • Embedded in an Application - The Actian Backup Agent API enables developers to embed Backup Agent into their applications and deliver the highest level of backup data assurance.
