BackupAssist announced version 10 of the company's popular BackupAssist backup and disaster recovery software. The new software allows customers and partners to cost-effectively leverage existing cloud accounts and infrastructure with their choice of redundancy level and backup vault locations to meet cost, compliance, and performance requirements.
BackupAssist 10 allow customers to choose their cloud vendor and are provided with the ability to determine the physical locations where their data will be stored. Moreover, with cloud independence, customers can be assured of receiving the maximum data deduplication/compression efficiency because the customer selects the final backup storage location, eliminating backup and storage provider conflicts of interest.
According to Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC, "BackupAssist 10 is designed specifically for SMEs focusing on ease-of-use and reliability. The software provides platform protection for Hyper-V and support for key applications such as Microsoft SQL, marking its territory in the SME segment. The latest generation software adds multi-cloud support for Amazon AWS S3 and Microsoft Azure infrastructure, providing greater customization in how IT environments are protected."
Advanced capabilities in version 10 include:
"The feature set in version 10 is ideal for our operations and is expected to enhance our backup infrastructure with fast recovery, increased storage efficiency and superior data encryption." Said Will Fraley, Director of Information Technology, Charlotte Behavioral Health Care.
