Aug 26, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Idera, a provider of application and server management solutions, announced that Idera Server Backup Manager received the Gold Award from WindowsNetworking.com.
According to a release, Idera's server backup software for Windows and Linux, in both physical and virtual environments, earned a 5.0 out of 5.0 rating for backup and restore performance, usability, and manageability.
"Idera Server Backup Manager is a good choice for organizations that need a backup product that is both fast and reliable," said Mitch Tulloch, product reviewer at WindowsNetworking.com and author of the Windows Vista Resource Kit. "Average backup times were excellent with this product, and restores were blazingly fast and limited only by available network bandwidth."
Tulloch also said the wizard capability made configuring backups easy with simple steps for selecting a server, choosing a backup location and setting the backup policy. He also found the web-based dashboard "simple to understand" with easy access to views to add more servers, configure disk safes, view tasks and task history, initiate restores, and perform other critical backup administrator tasks.
Idera also announced a new version of the product, Server Backup Manager version 5.4.
"WindowsNetworking.com recognized Server Backup Manager's ease of use and restore speed, as have more than 1,000 customers protecting more than 250,000 servers," said Josh Stephens, Vice President of Product Strategy at Idera. "Our Server Backup Manager solution is popular among customers including hosting companies, MSPs, enterprises and SMBs because of its exceptional ease of use, broad support for both physical and virtual Windows and Linux servers, continuous data protection, and partial system restores. This new version of Server Backup Manager makes it even easier to quickly backup and restore vital business documents and data."
Server Backup Manager 5.4 allows users to login through LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory accounts instead of managing separate passwords. Centralized Agent Management enables remote agent configuration and deployment directly through Server Backup Manager instead of managing login credentials for machines under management.
Server Backup Manager 5.4 also includes Application Programming Interface enhancements such as report creation, merge performance metrics, and agent deployment. Additionally, the Data Center Console no longer requires MySQL or MySQL configuration.
