Step 1: Install Zmanda Server
The Zmanda backup server works with the Zmanda Management Console to run backups. This section reviews installing the Zmanda Backup Server and the Zmanda Management Console.
The Zmanda Server contains two components, the Zmanda Management Console and the Backup Server. In this video, we will demonstrate how to install both these components on the same Linux system.
Zmanda Server consists of two main components, the Backup Server and the Zmanda Management Console (ZMC), each running on a standalone REST server. Backup Servers are reachable via port 8002 and the ZMC via port 8008.
Zmanda uses a star topology where the Backup Server is the central hub that connects multiple Client Agents. When you scale Zmanda within your organization, numerous Backup Servers can be connected to one ZMC, enabling a cluster tree like the diagram below.

Individual backup installation architecture.
The first three options are the quickest ways to install the backup server. We recommend the Linux installation in complex configurations where data boundaries, black sites, air-gapped networks, etc., are needed.
