Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration is a new feature of Amazon S3. It speeds up the data exchange with a bucket up to 6 times. The feature was added to Windows version of CloudBerry Backup some time ago and now we made it available on Mac version.

Data transfer acceleration can be enabled for a particular backup plan. We have also prepared a detailed post about S3 Accelerator technology.

  • Never sleep on backup/restore - prevents OS X going into the Energy Saver sleep mode while backup or restore is running.
  • Continue plan on wake up - starts interrupted backup or restore after forcing sleep (in Apple Menu)
