What's New

Automatic onboarding

Automatic Onboarding

With Automatic Onboarding on Retrospect Management Console, customers can quickly bring a new site online with Retrospect or enable a new endpoint to add themselves to an existing server backup strategy.

Customers can quickly onboard employees with a tailored backup strategy, either as an endpoint to a current Retrospect engine or as a new Retrospect engine for protecting a new site or additional computers. Retrospect Backup automatically finds and adds new clients, and new Retrospect Backup engines will register with Retrospect Management Console for high-level monitoring and management.

Getting a new employee set up with a backup strategy is crucial for every business. Retrospect supports two simple ways of onboarding: adding a client to an existing Retrospect Engine and adding a new Retrospect Engine. Customers can add their list of licenses to the Management Console, and it will track which are in use and which are available.

Follow our step-by-step guide for Automatic Onboarding.

Restore preflight

Restore Preflight

Large-scale data protection—relying on highly-optimized storage configurations like hundreds of tapes or Amazon Glacier— strategies require preflight capabilities to ensure a fast operation, and Retrospect now allows customers to export a preflight summary including backup files and tape information.

You can find the new "Export" button for Restore Preflight below. Clicking "Export" will generate a complete CSV for your backup, including each file, its metadata, and its backup location and filename or tape.
