Atempo Introduces Live Backup 3.2

Atempo has introduced Live Backup 3.2, offering storage administrators new levels of flexibility, scalability and data protection for remote and on-site heterogeneous desktop and notebook computing environments. Live Backup 3.2 provides new administrative and reporting features, improved scalability per server, and also marks Atempo's first offering of continuous data protection (CDP) technology for the Mac OS X and Linux markets.

Live Backup now features multiple administration levels, which allow various subgroups to define their own unique policies while a "super" administrator can still drive overall backup policies. For larger organizations, this is a critical new function, which allows data backup policies to be managed by separate departments, improving both cost allocation and billing. These capabilities also allow service providers to deliver a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to multiple customers on one server, while ensuring that each customer still has autonomous administrative powers and the ability to set backup policies. Aiding this business model is Live Backup's significantly improved scalability, which reduces the number of servers required for additional users.

With its support for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Linux systems, Live Backup delivers continuous data protection that automatically and continuously captures and tracks data modifications as they occur on any network-connected desktop or laptop. This cross-platform support gives Live Backup the ability to protect all computers and notebooks in an organization.

Live Backup's ease of use and end-user functionalities are designed to fit mid-size to large companies that require a client-side backup solution that does not interfere with end-user productivity and requires minimal IT supervision. Live Backup conserves both network bandwidth and storage space, and works silently in the background, automatically backing up data wherever the computer is located, whether at corporate headquarters, a remote office or secured Internet connection. The software offers a wide range of recovery capabilities from self-serve file restoration of lost or accidentally deleted files to complete system recovery.

Live Backup 3.2 will be available for Windows in June, with support for Mac OS X and Linux in July.
