Continuous Restore - Background Information
Within the Redstor Online Backup Plus (OLB+) technology is a feature called continuous restore. Continuous restore facilitates the recovery of the most recent and successful backup of a data source to a warm standby device, waiting to be put into production should the need arise. Utilising the delta restore capability by default the restore only client sends the required changed/new blocks of data to the standby device ensuring the latest recovery points are made available as soon as possible.
The continuous restore feature is available for all data sources with the exception of VMware.
How to Setup Continuous Restore
The general requirements for continuous restore (regardless of the data source) is to have a standby device running a restore only client configured in continuous restore mode which is connected to the account of the device that performed the backups. You then the data to be recovered within the continuous restore tab and save the settings. The client will then check-in every 30 seconds to see if any new backup data is available for restore. This time interval can be modified within the config.ini file.

If enabled, the restore only client will by default, restore data from the local speed vault (LSV) as this will result in faster restores. In the event that an LSV is not present data will be restored via the internet.
