Carbonite to Acquire Mozy – But Why?

Last week we learned that Carbonite is acquiring yet another disaster recovery company, Mozy. While other acquisitions that Carbonite has made, like Evault and Doubletake, helped them round out their technology portfolio, what does Mozy give them? Carbonite and Mozy have long been competitors in the small business/home office backup market so at first, it appears that Carbonite just acquired its biggest competitor. I have no special insights as to what Carbonite plans with Mozy but I do have some speculations. Continue reading

Announcing the CloudBerry™ Forum!

Since I started here at CloudBerry one of the questions I kept asking was “why don’t we have our own forum?” The answer was that we used to have a forum several years ago but that was before we had a lot of customers. Participation was low and it wasn’t deemed as a necessary resource at the time so the forum was closed. Now that we have tens of thousands of customers and we see questions come up in popular places like Reddit, Spiceworks, Server Fault and others, we feel it’s time to offer our customers a CloudBerry specific place to ask questions and get answers.

Creating and Accessing Amazon S3 VPC Endpoint

We are always trying to stay on top of the new functionality introduced by Amazon. In this guide, we will describe how to create and access Amazon S3 endpoint in your VPC.

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) is the Amazon service that allows you to create and manage virtual private networks. By default, all AWS resources are accessed via the public Internet. You may need to restrict access to your cloud network due to security requirements of your project. Before now, you had to allow internet communications between your VPC and AWS resources that you need. The recently introduced feature called VPC Endpoints allows you to keep your VPC truly private and grant access only to the resources that you need directly from the network itself.

Getting Back to Work. Doug Hazelman is Joining CloudBerry

Former Veeam Executive Doug Hazelman Joins Cloudberry

When I left Veeam back in April 2017 I announced that I was taking the summer off to focus on myself and staying home for a bit. The summer turned into Fall and then Winter but I’m happy to say that I’m back in the game again working with CloudBerry and their great set of products. You may notice that CloudBerry has some relation to Veeam, most notable is that Ratmir Timashev (Veeam co-founder) is on their board. The other great thing about CloudBerry is that a lot of the people have worked together before, going from Aelita to Quest to Veeam and then CloudBerry. It’s great to be working with a familiar group of people again. Continue reading

Taking Advantage of Web Access for macOS & Linux in CloudBerry Backup

It's been a few months since we introduced CloudBerry Backup 2.1 for macOS & Linux that brought support for Web Access — a feature that enables you to use a web-based user-interface for the app. This feature is incredibly useful for those Linux users that have a non-GUI distro but want to interact with CloudBerry Backup in a more convenient way. So in this article we'll demonstrate how to enable Web Access and use it to perform regular operations.
