GWAVA Reload™ is the fastest backup and disaster recovery tool available for GroupWise. Reload delivers quick message restore as well as hot backups of post offices and domains, ensuring that critical data is always current and available.
Here is a great video Q&A with Reload's software develope, Tay Kratzer, that will provide you an extensive overview to better understand Reload, and how it works to backup and disaster recovery solution for GroupWise.
With hot backups of the GroupWise system, Reload allows for immediate recovery and full restoration of all or any portion of your mail system—a domain, a mailbox, or a single email.
Here are some of the great features of Reload:
The latest release of Reload can install a Collector on the Linux server that houses the GroupWise Post Office or Domain. The Reload Collector gathers the contents of a GroupWise post office OFUSER and OFSMG directory into a staging area on the local GroupWise server. The Collector uses RSYNC technology to replicate the contents of the post office to the Reload server. This new architecture creates faster backups, backup redundancy, elimination of the need to have an on-prem Reload Server, and less required disk space and processing power.
Manage Reload profiles directly from the main administration interface. Reload allows you to make changes globally across all of your backup profiles. Plus, in the latest version of Reload, you can have linked profiles.
In Reload you can choose a specific post office backup to delete, and Reload will set out to delete it immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when a Reload server is just barely over it's disk space error threshold, and backups have stopped because of disk space overage. Choosing the oldest backup, or perhaps an intra-day backup is a good measure to resolve the issue immediately.
"Reload Enterprise Cloud Module - The Reload Enterprise Cloud Module allows you to fully replicate your GroupWise system into the GWAVA cloud or a trusted sister site. The Reload Enterprise Cloud Module allows for significantly faster backups to GWAVA’s cloud, or your own sister site. For example, a customer with a 250 GB post office replicates to the GWAVA Cloud in 8 minutes a night."
