Backup to Local Storage with Encryption, Compression, Versioning and Block-Level Backup

Starting from version 2.5, CloudBerry Backup comes with an ability to back up data to local storage such as local disks, network shares, and NAS devices. While the previous version had some basic support for local backup, CloudBerry Backup v. 2.5 and later allows users to take advantage of all product functionality available for cloud backup including block-level backup, data encryption, data compression, and data versioning.

CloudBerry Backup lays the foundation for a full hybrid backup implementation. The users can decide what data to store locally for high availability and what data to store in remote locations such as Amazon S3 and Windows Azure.
