Backup Accelerator

Big file backup, little file performance

Backup Accelerator

Increase the speed of backups containing large files, applications and databases by automatically tracking changes to those files in between backup jobs. This keeps backup windows short and improves backup performance.


Large file support

MAX Backup automatically keeps track of what’s changed in selected files that are 1GB or larger, making the backup of changes to databases in SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint, as well as changes to Outlook PST files, and Hyper-V virtual machines as fast as traditional backups of changes to smaller files.

Enhanced backup performance

Traditionally, backups of large files and databases don’t conform to small backup windows – it just takes too long to scan, compare, and identify what’s changed before the backup can begin. The Backup Accelerator in MAX Backup decreases the backup time of large files by 60% to 80%, when compared to a regular file-level backup of the same data.

Simplified configuration management

Large files are easily identified in MAX Backup by specifying the file extension and minimum file size to monitor.  Both values can be customized to meet the file types and sizes needed by your customers to ensure increased backup performance across your customer’s entire network.

Full support for Windows

In today’s environments servers aren’t the only systems with large files on them. That’s why Backup Accelerator is supported on Windows 7 and higher on client machines and Windows Server 2008 and higher on servers.
