Richest Features in the Market
Among all backup software available in the market, Backup Planet comes with the most useful features that you can think of. All features are designed to help you back up all your database servers, email servers, email client applications, file servers, virtual machines, desktops and laptops automatically, and allow system administrators to manage their backups and backup users easily.
Support Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express
Backup Planet pro edition (PlanetPRO) and Backup Planet Lite edition (PlanetLITE) client applications can be used to backup Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express. Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express are the two most popular semail readers used by businesses and home users. However, backing up data stored in these two email readers is a headache to most users, as few users know where to find the related files storing the personal information (e.g. “.pst”, “.dbx”) and address book (“.wab”) used by these email readers to back up. With PlanetPRO/ PlanetLITE, backing up these data becomes really easy as it only requires clicking a few buttons.
Support All Common Databases
Backup Planet pro (PlanetPRO) client-side backup application comes with specialized database and application backup modules for backing up commonly used database and email servers. Your System administrator is able to activate or deactivate individual modules for different users through Backup Planet Offsite Backup Server (PlanetOBS). These database and application backup modules include:
- Microsoft Exchange Server
- Microsoft Exchange Server Mail-Level Backup
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Lotus Domino
- Lotus Notes
Windows System Backup and Restore
For computers running Microsoft Windows Vista Business/Enterprise/Ultimate Edition, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008, Backup Planet pro (PlanetPRO) client backup application of Backup Planet is able to perform Windows System Backup and Restore. For older versions of Windows, we will provide you with a special tool for using in conjunction with PlanetPRO to perform Windows System Backup and Restore.
You can configure PlanetPRO to save a copy of a Windows system on a local or network hard-drive before performing offsite backup. In case of a total-loss disaster happened to a local computer or server, you can recover the Windows system quickly from the local backup. A crashed Windows machine with 10GB in size can be recovered within 10 minutes. If the local backup has been destroyed in the disaster, backed up Windows image can still be restored easily from the Backup Planet Offsite Backup Server (PlanetOBS).
Therefore, Backup Planet offers you a complete backup solution in protecting your Windows machines and allows you to recover them quickly after disasters.
Instant Data Replication
Backup data from Backup Planet Offsite Backup Server (PlanetOBS) is replicated to on or our Backup Planet Replication Server (PlanetRPS) in a separate geo-redundant site. PlanetOBS will automatically push (replicate) the backed up data to PlanetRPS after a backup job is finished. This instant replication provides added protection to the data backed up with Backup Planet. In case of a natural disaster or server failure at our primary backup facility our PlanetRPS servers provides an added protection to your backed up data.
The new multi-threading implementation in Backup Planet Pro (PlanetPRO) and Backup Planet Lite edition (PlanetLITE) can improve the backup and restoration speed to a great extent, especially for the client machines with multi-core CPUs, as they will create 2 threads per CPU’s core during backup or restoration. For a client machine which has a quad-core CPU, 8 threads will be created during backup or restoration. That means the speed will be a lot faster than a single-threading operation.
Backup Account Protected by Login Name and Password
For each backup account using Backup Planet pro edition (PlanetPRO) or Backup Planet Lite edition (PlanetLITE) client-side backup application, it is required to have a login name and password. These credentials will be used for logging in to the client-side application as well as the user section of the Backup Planet Offsite Backup Server (PlanetOBS) web console for security protection. Backup Planet Partners will also have a unique account for loggoin in to our Partner portal to manage all of their user’s backups.
Top of the Class Encryption
All data will be compressed and encrypted with a 256-bit encryption with an encrypting key selected by the user on the client-side applications, Backup Planet pro edition (PlanetPRO) and Backup Planet Lite edition (PlanetLITE), before being uploaded and stored on Backup Planet Offsite Backup Server (PlanetOBS). The encrypting key will NEVER be uploaded to PlanetOBS during backup. In addition, all data will also be uploaded through a secure SSL channel to further increase the level of security. On the other hand, decryption is only possible with the user’s encrypting key. Therefore, this whole mechanism provides exceptional security to the backed up data.

CRC Data Integrity Checking on Server Side
Both Backup Planet Offline Backup Server (PlanetOBS) and Backup Planet Replication Server (PlanetRPS) run CRC data integrity checking before storing the backup data.

This insures the integrity of your data once it is stored on our servers and warns us if the data looks to be corrupt.
Web Based Data Restore

This provides you with the option of restoring your backed up data from a computer that has no Backup Planet pro edition (PlanetPRO) or Backup Planet Lite edition (PlanetLITE) client applications installed.

If Off-Line Backup Alert is enabled, a popup message box will ask the user to confirm starting the backup. The Email Notification setting is the number of days since the last backup that triggers the backup server to send email notification to the client to remind them to run an off-line backup. When the System Logout Backup Reminder setting is enabled, a popup message box will ask the user to start a backup before logging out / shutting down Windows.
