eazyBackup Chunking Overview

Overview

At the core of eazyBackup is our technology which allows us to back-up and restore faster than the competition: this is called “Chunking”.

Backing up

We back up data by first splitting it into variable-sized chunks, which are individually compressed, encrypted, and uploaded. eazyBackup uses data-dependent chunking, efficiently splitting a file into consistent chunks even in the face of random inserts.

Further incremental back-up jobs simply realize that chunks already exist on the server and do not need to be re-uploaded.

Restoring

When it comes to restoring, eazyBackup is just as fast. eazyBackup directly downloads only the chunks it needs for the file and requires no additional space other than the size of the file. Additionally, there are no CPU intensive merging processes.
