  • Centralized Backup Management for Mac
    • Backup for Endpoints – Mac, can now be directly configured and managed from the backup server itself. This eliminates the need for separate clients and simplifies the management process for administrators.
  • Backup Templates for Files/Folders Backup in Servers & Endpoints
    • By utilizing backup templates, configuring backups becomes effortless, ultimately saving valuable time and mitigating the risk of potential errors. Initially, backup templates were available for VMware, Hyper-V, and Microsoft Windows (Disk Image) backups. However, with this recent release, backup templates are now also applicable for Files & Folders Backup on Servers and Endpoints.
  • Multi-tenancy for File Servers & Endpoints

  • Disk-Image Backup from Linux BDRSuite Backup Server
    • Disk-Image Backup for Microsoft Windows can now be directly configured and managed from the Linux backup server itself. This eliminates the need for separate clients like in previous versions of Linux backup servers and simplifies the management process for administrators.
  • Import Hosts using CSV
    • In the previous version, importing hosts through a CSV file was previously available for Endpoints. The latest version now allows for the same feature to be used for importing Windows and Linux Servers. This automates the bulk host addition process & simplifies host management, making it fast and efficient.
