How Vinchin NAS Backup Solution Works

Backup model for massive small-size files Backup model for best NAS backup practice

When a NAS backup job in Vinchin Backup & Recovery starts, files and folders on the target NAS device will be mounted to Vinchin backup server via NFS/CIFS protocols. The built-in client of the backup server will carry out the backup process. When a NAS device in the production environment is interrupted, either local NAS backups or offsite NAS backup copies can be used to fit different recovery scenarios.
