The primary vProtect interface is the WEB UI accessibly via web browser.
Divided into a few sections, it makes it possible to view and set the most vital options related to management, monitoring and reporting.
The left pane contains the main menu (see below for a more detailed description).
The upper right corner provides access to documentation, support and system logs.
The lower part provides the option to view the (sliding) task console.
The menu on the left provides access to the most important sections:
Dashboard- the main screen with a general summary and the configuration wizard
Nodes- node management and node configurations
Instances- list of currently known virtual machines and access to the details page of each object
Infrastructure- access configuration for hypervisors and hypervisor managers, basic info about the inventoried environment, such as clusters and storage
Backup SLAs- allows you to setup a correlation between virtual machines, the backup destination and schedules (Policies tab). It also allows you to configure policy schedules (schedules tab).
Snapshot SLAs- allows you to setup a correlation between virtual machines, snapshot retention and schedules (Policies tab). It also allows you to configure policy schedules (schedules tab).
Recovery Plans- allows you to setup a number of rules to restore your virtual machines into a hypervisor or filesystem to test your backups (Policies tab). It also allows you to configure policy schedules (schedules tab).
Mounted Backups- browse and download files from mounted backups
Instances- Create Application definition (at least its name and Command Execution Configuration and select node which is going to do the work)
Execution Configurations- Prepare script or commands (this is a description of how your script is going to be invoked)
Backup SLAs- allow you to setup a correlation between applications, backup destinations and schedules. It also allows you to configure policy schedules (schedules tab).
Virtual environments- back up and restore statistics for virtual environments
Applications- backup and restore statistics for defined applications
Audit Log- watch what actions have taken place in the application
Backup Destinations- create and manage backup destinations (including backup retention)
File system- You can use Regular filesystem, remote (NFS, SMB, etc.) or attach a block device and enable Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO).
Object storage- on-premise or cloud-based vendors of object-oriented storage, allowing for safe storage of backups (AWS, Azure, GCS, Ceph, Scality etc.)
Enterprise- configure integration with enterprise backup providers as your backup destination (Dell EMC, IBM, Veritas)
Users- create and manage your accounts (Language, time zones etc.)
Settings- From here, you can manage global settings, licenses, email, authentication and internal DB backup.
