Major new Nebtrex server release makes functionality king

  • 10 December, 2008 14:54

<p>Businesses of all sizes have the potential to make significant savings and streamline operations with the latest Backup Server release just announced by Nebtrex, one of Australia’s leading providers of backup, storage, disaster recovery and remote monitoring solutions.</p>
<p>Release 3.5.3 in the company’s unique Backup Server range makes functionality king and according to Nebtrex Managing Director Stewart Campbell, the file sharing enhancements alone will give users a lot more bang for their buck.</p>
<p>“We’ve added the ability to create and modify file shares, and in the process eliminated unnecessary cost burdens and limitations imposed on businesses by standard off-the-shelf products.”</p>
<p>“With current off-the-shelf server products businesses not only pay upfront for the initial product, but then face the often prohibitive costs of extra licences for multiple users and the extra administration overheads to configure and maintain the product,” Stewart said.
“Our new release gives them all that file server functionality in their Backup Server and there are no licence fees or extra charges, making it a much more cost-effective and practical solution. They literally get several solutions for the price of one extremely versatile alternative.”</p>
<p>Nebtrex Backup Server Release 3.5.3 supports up to 50,000 users.</p>
<p>Another exciting new feature is that this version supports backup of the increasingly popular Zimbra servers. The added capability is accomplished via a unique backup job that connects to the Zimbra server, shuts down the Zimbra services, performs the backup with Nebtrex data de-duplication snapshot technology and then restarts the Zimbra services.</p>
<p>“It can all be done quickly and simply with minimal disruption to business operations,” said Stewart.</p>
<p>“We’ve also enabled multiple database support so that users are no longer limited to choosing one or all databases for backup, but can actually select which databases they want to backup and have them backed up live in a single job.”</p>
<p>Other notable features of the latest version of the Nebtrex Backup Server include a new configuration system that affords greater flexibility and allows for future growth through multiple advance hardware configurations; automatically enabled special file support; a new logging system and speedier backup server reporting.</p>
<p>“Increased speed is always a bonus for end users and has been a positive by-product of our other enhancements, including faster backup and transfer times,” said Stewart.</p>
<p>Combine these enhancements with a product that is appealingly affordable and ultra-simple to set-up and you have a powerful data storage and protection solution that helps reduce administration costs and complexity and boost productivity in any size environment.</p>
<p>Nebtrex Backup Servers are supported by 24-7 remote monitoring to provide proactive, in-depth monitoring and secure administration.</p>
<p>Stewart said the Nebtrex team is strongly focused on enabling businesses to control the ever-increasing data burden, consistently refining products and processes that will help customers operate more efficiently and improve data recoverability success.</p>
<p>“We’re very proud of this new release because it marks a significant step-forward in terms of functionality and server collaboration.”</p>
<p>The new release is based on the same robust technology of previous versions and is available now. Nebtrex can be contacted on 1300 131 629 for further information or visit
