By - Source: Toms IT Pro

CloudBerry Backup v3.8, a cost-efficient cloud backup and disaster recovery solution for Microsoft Windows operating systems, was released on Tuesday. This updated solution now provides cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-local backup support for public clouds such as Windows Azure, Amazon S3, OpenStack, Rackspace, HP Cloud and over 15 other providers.

In addition to the cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-local backup support, CloudBerry Backup will allow users to schedule backup jobs, configure retention policies and specify file types to backup or to skip as well as define purge options for backup files. This new version also provides automatic email notifications, and built-in backup storage search for fast file search and restore.

"Although leading cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure guarantee data durability and accessibility, they can’t help you to restore accidentally deleted or corrupted files," says Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. "New CloudBerry Backup v3.8 allows organizations ensure cloud-based data is protected and available for granular file-level restore at any time."

Some of the main features offered by CloudBerry Backup for Desktop include encryption and compression, allowing users to encrypt data with a unique key before sending it to the cloud. Customers can also reduce the backup size with user end compression prior to uploading into the cloud. Backing up thus becomes faster and more secure, and uses less space.

Other features include multiple cloud storage support, local backup and block level backup. Network locations backup includes network shares, NAS devices, mapped drives and so on. Users can backup only the changed parts of their files, as CloudBerry Backup tools detect these parts and automatically uploads them to the cloud.

This release is available for a number of platforms including Desktop ($29.99) for Windows workstations, Server ($79.99) for Windows Servers, Bare-Metal ($119.99) with System State Backup and Bare Metal Recovery for Windows Servers, MS SQL ($149.99) for Windows Servers with MS SQL, MS Exchange ($229.99) for Windows Servers with MS Exchange, and Enterprise ($299.99) with all-in-one features.
