For a long time now I've been experimenting with different hardware and software solutions, looking for an all purpose storage server I could use both at home and in the office. At home I've basically just been after a centralised store for my photos, movies and documents with a level of integration that would also allow me to stream content to various different devices. In the office we need a bit more, so support for technologies such as Rsync, SSH, iSCSI, RAID drives and NFS have all been on my wish list.

Just a quick update to let you know about a great little free utility I've stumbled upon that you might find handy if you're a user of BackupAssist. I've recently been testing BackupAssist with iSCSI target destinations and have been using the iSCSI target built into Microsoft Server 2008 R2. This works great but unfortunately is only available for 2008 servers.

Over the past 12 months we've been actively involved in passing feature requests back to MailStore on behalf of our customers, and its great to see how many of these...

Zen Software at Infosec We're but a few weeks away from the annual industry pilgrimage to Earls Court for the biggest of the IT and security shows in this country, InfoSecurity Europe.

This year will be slightly different however, as visitors will notice that the show's noticeably better than previous ones thanks to the addition of the Zen Software stand in the new exhibitor area. It's possible I'm overestimating the impact we'll have but in any case, we're genuinely pleased to be a part of the show and that we'll be down there unashamedly flogging our wares in our compact but charming booth (K94).

BackupAssist 6.4 headerFurther to my recent post about the Beta, I'm pleased to announce that we've put the finished version live on our site - so now seems as good a time as any to let you know what's in it... Key to the appeal of version 6.4 are two main features - the all new RecoverAssist console and the dedicated support for iSCSI destinations. Together they open up some really interesting possibilities. We've been putting version 6.4 through its paces as you may have picked up from some of Neil's recent blog posts, and as a result we're all really pleased seeing the direction developer Cortex are headed.
