IT departments, like all enterprise teams, need a way to back up data so they can quickly reconfigure their hardware in the event of an incident or component failure. Cariboo, our open-source application for backing up IT infrastructure configurations, guards against data loss and saves you precious time in reconfiguring your hardware (such as storage racks, switches and virtual servers).

Quickly back up and restore infrastructure component configurations

Cariboo supports configuration backups and restorations for the following infrastructure components:

Cariboo is quick and easy to configure and includes an automatic VIOS detection feature.

Once you have finalized your backup, you can decide how often you want to back it up. For maximum security, backups can be incorporated into your organization’s general business recovery plan.
