New version slated for release at HostingCon to be held on July 19-21 in Austin, Texas

Amsterdam, Netherlands, 07/12/2010 - BackupAgent, the leading provider of online backup software for service providers and Web hosts, is planning a major release of its successful, award winning, online backup software platform.

Version 4 will represent the next generation of online backup software focusing on significant product improvements to enhance the experience of both SME customers and BackupAgentís partners; service providers, hosters, and telcos.

One of the most compelling new features in V4 is storage of backup data based on retention policies, resulting in a better and more consistent behavior during restore over a long period. Also, backup accounts will sustain a more even level of data storage usage over time. BackupAgent V4 comes with a redesign of the management console to allow faster and more consistent monitoring of backup accounts and running backups, resulting in a significant reduction in required monitoring effort for administrators.

Other new features are an extended folder filter functionality with a default filter set to avoid backups of temporary and unnecessary data. BackupAgent Client software will integrate with Kaseya by enhanced error logging in Windows Event Viewer. Lastly, BackupAgent has added Hungarian and Danish to the available languages, totaling 10 available languages.

Above feature set is a result of an intense customer feedback process in which BackupAgent has collected typical usage behavior and compared this with wishes and ideas coming in from partners. During the course of 2010 and 2011 BackupAgent will also add more cloud-related features as part of BackupAgent V4. The software will support cloud storage protocols natively in the near future and will open more parts of the software as API or SDK for integration with other services.
