Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Network Time Server - Network Time Server
Sat, January 04 2003 | 3:35PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The client version stays in touch with the Network Time Sync Server, and, for the most part, takes commands from the server. The administrator is able to send out time synchs to all client machines with a push of the button. But time synching goes beyond the users' convenience; it also keeps backups in order. Time stamps are very important for backup systems, and having incorrect time date stamps can bring frustration to the backup administrator's job. Most large-scale backup servers perform incremental backups, which work off of the date the file/folder was last opened, or modified. If that file/folder has been modified since the last update, then the server will back up that file/folder. If the server has incorrect time stamps, the backup server will encounter unsynchronized backups and not fully perform its tasks. Backup servers are not the only reason network time synching is important; banks, financial facilities, eCommerce, trading and billing systems, and database servers, are among the many requiring critical time stamping.
