(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – R1Soft®, a division of Idera and the developer of Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) backup and recovery software for servers in the cloud,today announced CloudCopy™, secure online backup software for Internet service providers (ISPs), enabling them to offer cloud backup services to homes and small businesses. CloudCopy enables providers to offer online backup services competitive with existing services from companies like Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB) and Mozy by Decho Corporation a subsidiary of EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC).
The CloudCopy workstation client performs automated backups of desktop computers running Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, or Linux operating systems. CloudCopy server client software for Microsoft Windows Servers provides small office servers with automated cloud backup including support for Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange.
“Why shouldn’t a consumer have just as many choices for online cloud backup as they do for web hosting or domain name registration?” said David Wartell, Vice President of R1Soft Products at Idera. “Everyone in the business knows the barrier to entry in online backup is the software, and the existing providers like Carbonite, Mozy, Backblaze, and CrashPlan, all develop their own. CloudCopy will bring thousands of new service providers into the growing multi-billion dollar online backup market.”
ISPs use their existing data centers and infrastructure and simply install the CloudCopy repository and management software on commodity Windows servers in their data centers. A fully-configured, white-labeled online backup service offering takes less than a day to setup. The CloudCopy management server software integrates with popular ISP billing software including: Parallels Business Automation Standard, Citrix EMS Cortex, Extend ASP, Ensim Unify, WHCMS, and Kaseya.
