How It Works

1. Install AOMEI Backupper Network on one of the computers within LAN and it will be the "Central Management Computer".
2. Install AOMEI Backupper Standard (client program) on the computers you'd like to backup.
3. AOMEI Backupper Network will list all client computers under "Computers" -> "Uncontrolled Computers", and then remotely get the control permission by sending authorization request or entering usernames and passwords.
4. Centrally create backup tasks of system, disks or partitions for controlled client computers, and save the backup images to a network share or NAS.
Tips: If you want to backup system, disks or partitions in virtual machines (VMware, VirtualBox, Hyper-V, etc), please install AOMEI Backupper Standard in the virtual machines.
