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 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).
Happy New Year everyone. A big thank you to all of you who’ve shown support, whether it’s by using one of our products or simply by visiting our blog pages occasionally. From all of the team here at Zen Software, we hope you have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2013.
As those resolutions start to kick in and we’re looking forward to making sure we start 2013 in the best way possible, I wanted to stop for just a moment and share with you which of the posts on the blog were most popular in 2012. You never know, you might just have missed a gem or two!
You may have picked up from our subtle marketing that something new is on the horizon with the next release of BackupAssist, Version 7.
Now the public Beta is here I’m excited to be able to finally tell you all about the new features, which include a completely reworked interface design.
First off, let me introduce the completely new simplified interface and layout…
BackupAssist’s Hyper-V product has been featured in a recent review on the virtualisation pages of the TechTarget group Web site.
Acknowledged as one of the smaller players in the Hyper-V backup market, BackupAssist with it’s Hyper-V Granular Restore Console received praise as a product that –
“offers great value for small and medium-sized businesses”
…and is “a good place to start if you’re an SMB”.
Our Aussie friends over at BackupAssist developer Cortex IT, have opened up a great opportunity for our partners to attend the first in what we hope will be a series of online Webinar/ Q&A sessions.
They’re presented directly by the BackupAssist development team and are a unique chance to hear about BackupAssist’s Hyper-V backup capabilities while also providing feedback should you wish.
In Part 2 of ‘Build your own NAS’ I showed you how to set up an SSH server and use BackupAssist to rsync backups to the OpenMediaVault server. In this latest post I’ll show you how you can quickly get access to these backups using a windows SMB/CIFS share.
In Part 1 of ‘Build your own NAS’ I showed you how to create a folder share in OpenMediaVault we could use to store remote server backups. In this second part I’ll run through how to set up the SSH server and configure a user account to store the backups.
