CloudBerry S3 Backup is a powerful Windows program that automate backup and restore processes to Amazon S3 cloud storage.
In the release we are introducing two important enhancements: the ability to backup data locally to local disks, SAN, NAS and remote file shares, and the ability to use custom SMTP server for notifications. The latter is Server Edition only feature though.
With this feature you can backup data to local disks, SAN, NAS and remote file shares. This is useful if you like to backup only subset of your data to the cloud for advanced protection but also like to keep your data locally for fast access and reduced costs.
There is a new account type called File System Storage account and you have an option to choose it on the Backup Wizard dialog.
All you have to do is to specify the path to the folder where you want the backup created.
Everything else will work just like with any other storage provider.
Note: currently local backup feature doesn't support versioning, encryption and compression. These options are coming in the future releases.
Update 5/9/11: as of version 2.2.1 you can now specify customer credentials for network location. Check out here for more info.
Custom SMTP Server
Prior to release 2.0 you could only use CloudBerry Notification service to get email notification on backup completion. Quite a few our customers wanted to be able to use their own SMTP service to send the notification. in this release we are introducing an option to use the custom SMTP server.This new option is available for CloudBerry Backup Server Edition only.
We have introduced a new option on the Backup Wizard notification step where you can choose between CloudBerry Notification service and custom SMTP server.
Just specify SMTP settings on the configuration dialog.
As always we would be happy to hear your feedback and you are welcome to post a comment.
