Network Backup Software

Definition - What does Network Backup Software mean?

Network backup software is a type of software that automates the process of backing up network nodes and/or an entire network infrastructure.

The software creates backup instances of data, files, the operating system/firmware, network configurations and other network-specific data, devices and preferences.

Techopedia explains Network Backup Software

Network backup software is typically a part of a network backup system that includes the network backup hardware (backup storage/server). The software works like any other backup software. It is usually installed and operated from a backup or application server. It can also be configured and scheduled to perform network backups at specific time intervals.

Network backup software also automates the process of restoring network infrastructure and/or operations at a disaster recovery site. The software restores the network data, nodes and/or environment at such a failover site.
