New addition gives ISPs and storage-as-a-service providers greater choice of IP Backup platforms

London, UK, 3rd December 2008 - IASO Backup Technology has adapted its IP Backup server software for use on Microsoft Windows servers. This now makes it even simpler for the end-customer and the Backup Service Provider (BSP) to enter the world of online backup.

IASO IP Backup is a client-server solution whereby IASO’s client software runs on the system requiring backup while the backup server can be located remotely – in a secure data centre, for example - either in-house or as part of a hosted service. Until very recently, the IASO Backup Server software could only be run on the IASO Backup Appliances, based on FreeBSD UNIX, and on SUN Solaris.

The introduction of IASO Backup Server 5.0 for Windows provides greater hardware flexibility since the IASO software can now run on all Windows-supported servers and storage systems. This means more freedom for Backup Service Providers and end-customers, but also in many cases a lower initial investment because existing hardware and storage can be used for the backup solution. And the performance on a Windows backup server is fast and stable.

“Thanks to the improved architecture of Version 5 of our IP Backup software, it’s now possible to use Windows as a backup server without compromising on performance and stability,” says Rob Verbeek, Managing Director of IASO Backup Technology. “Many of our customers and partners will welcome this development because it will be easier for them to install and manage the Windows Backup Server themselves and they can enter the world of online remote backup at lower cost. I should point out that the arrival of Windows as a backup server is merely an expansion of our product portfolio and does not mean that we’re stopping with selling our Backup Appliances.”
