To provide backup, restore and synchronisation for all files across the network
GFI Software, an infrastructure provider for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), has released GFI Backup 2010 – Business Edition designed to ensure that the process to restore data is easy to manage.
The company claims that its new backup offering is suitable for IT administrators who want to create a single backup/restore task and apply it across the entire network, saving valuable time in configuring multiple tasks as well as maintaining them when a change in policy occurs. It is a full-featured network data backup offering which applies backup, restore and synchronisation functionality to all files, web and Microsoft SQL servers.
According to GFI, the new offering allows administrators to centralise all backup and restore operations – including status monitoring – via one web-based administration console interface. It uses standard Zip64 file format when instructed to compress and archive.
Other features include, support for most common hardware storage devices and HTTPS access; 256-bit AES encryption; and email and event log notifications on task success/failure/warnings.
Walter Scott, CEO of GFI, said: The GFI Backup-Business Edition has been designed from the ground up with the busy administrator in mind, allowing them to create, assign, manage, analyse and run backup/restore tasks even remotely.
“This new solution addresses many of the concerns that IT administrators voice when looking at backup solutions such as vendor lock-in, complex licensing and the inability to create a single backup or restore task that can be applied network-wide.”
