Plug-in Offline Client component

The Plug-in Offline Client implements a block-by-block backup and restore technique to recover a system. This operation takes the target system offline and makes it unavailable. This step is done to either:

Backup: An Offline Backup backs up all aspects of a target system — OS, applications, system settings. This step is ideal for new systems that have been configured for use.
Restore: An Offline Restore recovers a machine that has no functional OS to a previously configured state.

Plug-in Live Client for Windows component

The Plug-in Live Client for Windows makes it possible to back up a full Windows system while it remains online and active. When recovery is required, the Plug-in Offline Client is used to boot the target NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Client and recover data; that is, an Offline Restore is required.

Plug-in Live Client for Linux component

The Plug-in Live Client for Linux makes it possible to back up a full Linux system while it remains online and active. The Plug-in Live Client for Linux uses Storix, a third-party DR boot utility, to boot the target NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Client and recover data; that is, an Offline Restore is required.

Plug-in Server component

The Plug-in Server resides on the NetVault Backup Server and enables backup and recovery of a target client’s data by using the Plug-in Offline Client or the Plug-in Live Client.
