I. What is Jetbackup?
Jetbackup is an extension software with many backup functions for source code, databases, logs, snapshots,… and many other great features. But the advantage of Jetbackup is to provide your customers with self-service capabilities.
So what is self-service here?
Self-service means customers can manage their backups and restore when they want instead of sending a request to the system administrator. You will not need to support customers too much when they need support, increasing customer satisfaction.
