It’s been a couple of months since we announced the launch of BackupAssist v10 and its super efficient new cloud backup engine. The significance of the new engine is that it unlocks the possibility of using public cloud giants AWS and Azure as backup destination options.
While the BackupAssist side of things is typically easy to configure, I’ve had a few requests for help navigating Azure’s configuration options, so in this article, I’ll be walking through the steps as they are today.
We’re very pleased indeed to officially announce that 2013 will see the launch of the latest offering in the fantastic MailStore product set, MailStore Cloud Edition. The concept of this product is that service providers will be able to offer their customers, a multi-tennant email archiving service, thereby completing their email service portfolio.
You may recall towards the tail end of last year I posted about BackupAssist developer Cortex’s excellent series of six Rsync videos.
I know the ability to off-site your data using BackupAssist is a popular feature so I wanted to let you know that Cortex have updated the series in line with the new version 7 release and I’ve also updated my original post.
If you use BackupAssist with Rsync jobs I highly recommend you follow the guide lines in these videos to keep up with best practices.
In this new stand-alone BackupAssist “how-to” video released by developer Cortex, we see how you can check if the Image backup you have taken has everything needed to perform a full Bare Metal recovery.
As with all backups it is imperative that you verify the backups to be sure they contain what you expect so we’d highly recommend you take a look at this video when you get a moment…
Our Aussie friends over at BackupAssist developers Cortex IT have recently released a set of 5 excellent short videos showing how to configure an Rsync server from start to finish.
We also cover this setup procedure in our installation guide here, but if you are planning on setting up your own Rsync server using cwRsync, CopSSH and BackupAssist these are definitely worth a watch.
If you’re anything like me you are probably working on a number of different projects at the same time. Historically I have found many different approaches to keeping organised, ranging from scribbling on notepads or creating text files that end up scattered around my PC, to using Outlook “tasks” and other dedicated tools.
All of these approaches have had their own drawbacks which is where I’ve found that Evernote steps in.
