"With proliferation of digital content, consumers and small businesses have a compelling need to have a reliable backup strategy to protect their digital assets. Onsite backups have their advantages in speed, performance and cost. Online backup has its advantages in providing a secondary offsite location for protection of critical data. By offering IBackup Personal(http://www.ibackup.com/personal) solution that combines the two, IBackup is first to offer an integrated solution that offers both onsite and offsite backups to consumers and small businesses" says Mr. Naveen, Project Manager for IBackup.
IBackup Personal offers traditional onsite backup features including ability to backup to LAN, removable drives, CD/DVDs. It also offers some unique features including ability to encrypt data using a user provided key, and ability to maintain multiple versions. Encryption insures that even if the backup media is lost, confidentiality of data is not lost. Versioning insures that users are able to restore data 'as of' a particular date/time.
Other features include ability to backup most commonly backed up data including Email data, Microsoft office and Multimedia files easily without having to know their exact paths, advanced logging and reporting, scheduling and ability to run as a service.
One of the most interesting features of IBackup Personal is its integrated approach to combining onsite backups with online backup. With the click of a button, users can transfer their backupset information to online backup application called IBackup Professional (http://www.ibackup.com/ibprof), modify it to suit their online backup needs and execute online backups. The onsite and online backup applications have similar user interfaces and is easy to switch between the two.
"Users typically backup larger amounts of data for onsite backups, and possibly more often. Critical data that needs to be backed up offsite is usually a subset of data backed up locally, so it is really useful to have ability to integrate file selection of onsite with online backup, and provide ability to customize", says Mr. Naveen.
Other features of IBackup personal include:
Fast and Efficient Backups - Incremental backups are done by transferring only modified portions of a file that was previously backed up resulting in faster backups. IBackup Personal efficiently uses system resources compressing data files reducing the storage requirements.
Security - The data files backed up using IBackup Personal are encrypted and stored by default using 256-bit AES and automatically decrypted during restores. The encryption is done based on a user-defined key.
Data Integrity - Each file goes through an extensive set of 128-bit MD5 checksum comparisons to ensure that user data is safe while performing backups.
