CloudBerry Provides a Disaster Recovery Solution for Customers to Amazon EC2

CloudBerry Backup 4.5 Now Enables Customers to Restore to an Amazon EC2 Instance in Minutes; New Version Also Includes Support for Amazon S3 Standard-IA, as well as for NT File System Permissions for Backup and Restore

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – October 7, 2015: CloudBerry Lab™ , a vendor of backup and management solutions for cloud storage services, today announced the immediate availability of CloudBerry Backup 4.5 with cloud-based disaster recovery. In this latest version, customers can restore an image of a Windows server as an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, to support customers as they run the server from the cloud until a full restore can be performed on-site.

CloudBerry Backup 4.5 handles all the recovery process and allows customers to:

  • Launch Amazon EC2 instance directly from the program user interface (UI);
  • Restore backups directly from Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to Amazon EC2;
  • Create Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for future restore to Amazon EC2;
  • Restore as an EBS volume and connect to a running EC2 instance;
  • Automatically change original server settings required to run as an Amazon EC2 instance: IP configuration, Remote Desktop Protocol and Firewall.

Version 4.5 also includes additional new functionality: Amazon S3 Standard-Infrequent Access (IA) support and support for NT File System (NTFS) permissions for backup and restore, which gives IT more control over access to backup files.

CloudBerry’s support for the new Amazon S3 storage class, Amazon S3 Standard-IA, gives small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) another option for cold storage. Like Amazon Glacier, it’s very inexpensive; but with Amazon S3 Standard-IA, there’s a quicker timeframe to retrieve data.

CloudBerry Backup is a simple, powerful cloud backup solution that’s ideal for SMBs. With CloudBerry Backup, the customer can choose to store backups in almost any storage cloud, including Amazon S3, Amazon Standard-IA and Amazon Glacier. CloudBerry Backup doesn’t process customer data on 3rd-party servers; instead, all data transfers occur between the source instance and a storage account the customer controls. And finally, restores are always free with CloudBerry. Customers don't need a CloudBerry Backup commercial license to restore data, but can configure data retrieval right from the product activation screen.

The solution includes powerful features, such as image-based backup, compression, scheduling, cloud and local backup, 256-bit AES encryption and block-level backup.

“With the latest version of CloudBerry Backup, customers can rest assured that they can easily restore to Amazon EC2 should they experience an event with their physical server and that their business can continue operations,” said CloudBerry Lab CTO Alexey Serkov.

Pricing and Availability CloudBerry Backup costs $29.99 per license for desktops and $119.99 per license for servers. CloudBerry Lab EC2 restore is available in the following versions of CloudBerry Backup: Server, SQL, Exchange and Enterprise.
