We Answer Your Questions

Who should use Minarca data backup software?

Minarca is the ideal data backup software for companies that work in the IT field, that have technical expertise with Debian Linux, and that want to offer their clients a robust and secure storage service. You can thus improve your service offering by relying on a reliable, high-performance, and customizable solution for your clients’ greatest satisfaction.

You need a central server that is running the Debian Linux operating system and enough storage space attached directly to the server or via NFS. You need to make sure that the physical infrastructure is in place and that it is hosted by you or by an external provider. It is important to provide storage space that can grow over time.

Minarca is installed on the computers and/or servers to be backed up using a simple runtime program. While the client provides a user interface to configure backup settings, the server orchestrates data backups from a web interface. The installation can be done directly on site on your clients’ computers or remotely. The client and server then communicate with each other to establish the backup links. The stored data is directly accessible online. All you have to do is keep an eye on your clients. Are you ready to use it? Download Minarca for free and install it on your servers. You will then be able to keep your clients’ computer data completely safe.

The backed-up data is stored on the central server where you have installed Minarca server. It is therefore necessary to ensure that you acquire a server on which you have enough space for your current and future needs. Renting a server from OVH is a very good solution in this sense.

There is no cost to use Minarca because all the source code is released under an open-source licence, a community in which we collaborate to ensure that everyone’s work is recognized. Only technical support, training and consulting services are charged, as well as the addition of new features if you wish to further customize the software.
