CloudBerry Lab Announces CloudBerry Backup Version 4.9

New Features, Including Restore to Azure Virtual Machines, Extend Backup and Storage Capabilities on Microsoft Azure

Aliso Viejo, CA – May 11, 2016 – CloudBerry Lab™, a leader in cloud-based backup and file management services to small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), has announced CloudBerry Backup Version 4.9, with several new features targeted at disaster recovery, backup and storage on Azure. These features include: the ability to restore both Windows Server system images and operations on Azure; support for larger data backups on Azure; and expansion of data storage options to include Azure servers in Germany.

“At CloudBerry Lab, we are constantly striving to give our customers greater options for cloud-based disaster recovery, backup and storage,” says Alexander Negrash, Director of Marketing at CloudBerry Lab. “We believe our new Restore to Azure Virtual Machines feature will be particularly welcomed by customers. The ability to backup Windows Server system images to Azure storage has been available for some time, but now customers can actually deploy server images from the backup copy, directly on Azure Virtual Machines. This is a highly cost-effective and reliable disaster recovery option for SMBs who may not have the resources for redundant data centers.”

CloudBerry Backup is a cross-platform solution built for cloud backup and storage, supporting Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage and OpenStack Swift. The new features being announced today are available across all editions of the CloudBerry Backup line, and include:

  • Restore to Azure Virtual Machines. In the event of a planned or unplanned IT operations interruption, this new feature lets users save Windows Server snapshots on Azure, and then deploy them as a cloud-based Azure virtual machine. Failover processes are rapid and can be managed remotely, helping users maintain extremely low recovery point- and recovery-time objectives even in instances when IT administrators may be dispersed.
  • Backup to Azure with BLOB size larger than 200GB. To date, Microsoft Azure Cloud Storage has had a size restriction for BLOB (Binary Large Object) data, making it impossible to run large backups to Microsoft Azure from CloudBerry Backup. This new feature now overcomes this limitation, by automatically dividing large data sets into smaller fragments during the backup process.
  • Support of Azure in Germany.CloudBerry Backup Version 4.9 supports data storage on Azure servers in Germany. This feature is geared towards businesses based in Germany, as well as businesses with Germany operations. Storing data locally can help these companies achieve faster response and retrieval times for “hot” or “active” data.
