BackupAssist v10 Featuring Direct to Cloud Backup for Amazon and Azure

BackupAssist version 10

We’re thrilled to announce that there’s a new version of BackupAssist available today, and with it, new features for backing up your data to the wonderfully reliable and ultra-secure data centres of cloud hosting juggernauts, Amazon and Microsoft (with more to follow).
