Last week, German software company ARCHIWARE released version 4.0 of its enterprise backup solution, PresSTORE. This version is for new installations only – version 4.1, planned for release in October, will support upgrades from existing 3.x deployments.
The new features of PresSTORE 4 can be found on the company’s website, but here are some highlights:
- New interface to simplify management
- iPhone app for remote monitoring of jobs
- New desktop notification system to alert users of actions
- Progressive backup – “backup without full backup”
Aaron Freimark also wrote a post about the new version on the Xsanity site that talks more about the Xsan-specific features.
As before, PresSTORE is supported on Mac OS X (10.4 and higher), Windows (2003, 2008, XP, Vista and 7), Linux and Solaris. Backup2Go Server is only supported on OS X and Solaris.
PresSTORE support is great – during testing of the new version, the iPhone monitoring app was crashing. Within a day, a new version was available in the App Store that addressed the exact issue. Bravo!
