Macrium Site Manager is a great new addition to the Reflect family of image based backup solutions. Now it is much easier to deploy large numbers of Macrium Reflect endpoint backup agents and manage these from a central location. IT Administrators will be able to use a customisable Dashboard to view backup status at a glance, along with easy problem identification and resolution. What does Macrium Site Manager do?
Using a clearly defined 4 step process the all new Site Manager allows IT Administrators to discover and group PCs and Servers on the network, define who and what is to be backed up, assign schedules and retention policies, and manage backup repositories. Comprehensive event management, alerts and security logging is included and accessible through a browser based user interface. The architecture leverages commonly used Microsoft Windows technologies and requires no specialist skills to install and configure.
What is a Macrium Agent License (MAL)?
Macrium Agent Licences are installed on the Site Manager Server and each license provides a number of seats. These seats are automatically assigned to computers as they are connected to the Site Manager server. If a computer is removed from the Site Manager server, the seat is freed for use elsewhere. This makes using MALs quick and easy to use as they require no special client configuration. Multiple seats can be managed with a single key, making key and license management easier.
Latest Site Manager Update
The new dashboard not only looks better than the old dashboard, it allows widgets to be resized and managed more easily through drag and drop. It also includes some quick warning tiles at the top to focus backup administrators on any areas that need attention.
New Look and Feel
As part of our ongoing programme to bring a more unified look and feel to the Site Manager, MultiSite and the Partner Portal, we’ve improved the UI in Site Manager?—?this is most obvious on the new dashboard, but the menus, tables and many other components have been updated.
Opening Image Files
From the Browse interface in the repository view, image files can now be opened and explored. Any file from the file system can be downloaded in browser without leaving the Site Manager interface. This feature is intended to help customers who just need a few files from a backup?.
Improved Summary Emails
The daily summary emails have been upgraded to include more information?—?backups active at the time of email generation, computers which failed to start backups because they were offline, computers which have not been backed up for a user-configurable number of days and more. This puts enough context into the daily emails that an administrator can spot anything which is a cause for concern in their backup configuration quickly.
