It also incorporates a device database for tracking statistics such as IP addresses, software versions, serial numbers hardware status and location.

The Auto Backr Pro is designed to ensure that headend technicians will always have the latest configuration files and databases handy in the event of failure. Since it can hold many dated copies of each configuration, technicians can literally go back in time to any previous version.

Auto Backr Pro also has the ability to automatically send backups to an offsite FTP server for disaster recovery. It also includes a basic hardware inventory database designed to let operators track IP addresses, serial numbers, software versions, hardware status, RMA info and more. The database is fully compatible with Zanaware's Channel Lineup Pro and can directly be integrated with it for single points of data entry.

Among its features are automatic daily or weekly backup for hundreds of headend devices; no special client software required; pre-loaded profiles for many switches, routers, statistical remultiplexers, edge processors, etc.; generic profiles for access methods including remote/local FTP, remote/local TFTP, HTTP, Telnet, SNMP and script-based commands; color coded logs; automatic data forwarding to any remote FTP server for off-site disaster recovery storage; archiving for a year or more; inventory flags such as Active, Warehouse, Out of Order and RMA; centralized file depository; an optional Syslog Server and SNMP Alarm Trap Receiver; compatible and integratable with Channel Lineup Pro for single points of data entry; and solid-state drive technology for data storage.
