Novosoft Releases New Online Backup Service Based on Handy Backup
Novosoft LLC, developer of a popular data backup utility Handy Backup™, has started a major update to their Online Backup service.
“This is the biggest change we’ve ever made to the service, and it touches every single part of it,” said Alexander Rassokhin, product manager of Handy Backup. “Everything became much faster: our tests showed up to 5x increase in performance when doing incremental backups. We’re launching a new service of initial backup seeding that will let users physically ship their hard drives to our storage centers instead of transferring gigabytes of data over the Internet. We have a new web interface that became simpler and easier to use. And there’s more to come!”
The new Online Backup service is a result of the company’s recent efforts in creating a Linux version of Handy Backup. It shares client-server architecture of their enterprise edition of the program, Handy Backup Network Server, with storage components launched in the cloud. In this scheme, remote clients communicate with the cloud software using Novosoft’s proprietary rsync-like protocol, making backups very fast and secure.
“All participants of Early Access Program can already take advantage of the new system. We are planning to roll it out globally in a month, starting with the US and Canada. Right now it is available in Windows version only, but Linux and Android clients will come in the nearest future.”
