Our Australian friends over at BackupAssist have been working hard to make sure v9 is the best release yet. They could however, really do with your help in testing the Beta version (released this morning) to make sure it’s as good as it possible can be come the final release.
As the distributor we like to provide as much feedback as we can, but we also rely on the fantastic response we always receive from customers and partners to help make sure we’ve got the broadest testing base.
Please note – As a beta product, we do not recommend using this version of BackupAssist v9 on live or production machines.
If you, or one of your customers, own a copy of BackupAssist with expired upgrade cover (you can check here), for the next four weeks, we’re offering a brilliant opportunity to bring it up to date (which also reinstates the free technical support cover).
Renewing an expired licence would normally be £95.00 + VAT, but up to and including Monday 14th September, it will be available to you at the non-expired rate of £66.00 + VAT.
**Now extended to 30th September 2015**
The reason for this sudden turn of generosity is two-fold…
Selecting backup software is an important decision. You need to compare your data protection needs against the features provided, and make a careful evaluation of what backup solution provides the best value.
In this post we explore some of the key requirements, and how both Acronis and BackupAssist support them.
BackupAssist have made a minor update of their fantastic backup software live today and as always, it’s available on our Web site for download.
This release consists mostly of minor fixes and there’s couple of small feature updates in there for good measure too.
You may recall a little over a month ago us announcing the brand new major release of BackupAssist version 7.1.That included an impressive range of new features such as a beta of the new Exchange Granular Restore (EGR) add-on, support for Exchange 2013, enhanced support for Server 2012 and history for imaging backups on NAS and RDX drives.
Well, following up the great work on 7.1, Australian developer Cortex have completed the EGR add-on beta phase and have released the feature in full in this latest iteration of our favourite backup software for small businesses.
A couple of minor updates for you this morning – there are new versions available of both BackupAssist and Outlook Connector on our site now.
BackupAssist consists of two small fixes only while the Outlook Connector release sees new official support for Outlook 2013 clients.
The brand new major release of BackupAssist, version 7.1 is now available to download, and brings many of the features you’ve been asking us for such as support for Exchange 2013, enhanced support for Server 2012 and history for imaging backups on NAS and RDX drives.
This is now the most stable release of BackupAssist v7 and we recommend that you download and install it straight away. If you already own a BackupAssist v7 license then you can download and update for free.
A new update for BackupAssist has just been made available by the Australian development team and is now available to download from our Web site.
As you can see from the release notes this update consists primarily of fixes although if you’re a reseller you might be interested to learn that it’s now possible to add your own logo in to the interface and splash screen of BackupAssist.
A couple of minor updates for you this morning – there are new versions available of both BackupAssist and SecurityGateway on our site now.
BackupAssist consists of fixes only while the SecurityGateway release sees a new licencing authentication system implemented and the withdrawal of support for Windows XP (versions prior to SP2 ) and Server 2003 (versions prior to SP1).
Neil’s been running some 30 minute preview webinars of version 7 over the past few weeks and has made a recording of one of them available via our Youtube channel.
In this video he steps through all of the major features, including the new management and monitoring interface, job creation screens and the “OntheGo” Web application.
Take a few minutes to sit back and be briefed on exactly why this is the best version of BackupAssist yet!
