Snapshots arrive on ASUSTOR NAS with the introduction of Snapshot Center which also adds support for Btrfs. Easily restore and take snapshots of Btrfs volumes as well as with iSCSI LUNs to more effectively protect your data.
Taipei, Taiwan, 22 May, 2019 - ASUSTOR Inc. has opened the floodgates for ADM 3.3 today! After upgrading to ADM 3.3, Snapshot Center will automatically appear on the ADM desktop. The snapshot hub combines existing iSCSI LUN snapshots and can be restored using Btrfs snapshots, making it easier to manage snapshots, saving valuable time.
ASUSTOR snapshots help create a copy of data almost immediately. Through advanced scheduling, detailed snapshots can be made to improve data restoration. At the same time, data integrity is better protected as well as helping to prevent important data from being lost or damaged. Data can also be quickly restored as well as the snapshot file in file summary to view details, and easily copy needed data to other shared folders.
The ASUSTOR Btrfs snapshots will be available on the 31, 32, 40, 50, 51, 61, 62, 63, 64, and 70 series. To enable this feature, select Support Snapshot Backup when initializing a NAS or select Btrfs within advanced setup. To convert to Btrfs, be sure to back up data first and then create a new Btrfs volume. iSCSI LUN snapshots are further supported on models not listed.

iSCSI LUN Snapshots and Restoration
ASUSTOR's iSCSI LUN almost-instant snapshot creation feature saves a lot of work time and storage space. After upgrading to ADM 3.3, this feature will be merged into Snapshot Center, allowing users to manage, browse, and restore snapshot tasks in the same interface.
