As anyone that has been following me lately knows I have been using CloudBerry Lab’s Online Backup program for awhile now and love it. It is set it and forget it. In fact I use most of their programs and they are all of the highest quality you will find anywhere for the price.
Well they have just improved their backup program with Backup Consistency Check. This will verify that you can restore your backup.
Below you will find the Press Release about this new feature. If you are using this to backup your computer you may be taking unnecessary chances.
New Backup Consistency Check Capability Detects all Corrupted Backups Before Problems Arise
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – May 27, 2015: CloudBerry Lab™, ™, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, today announced the availability of Backup Consistency Check. This feature allows end-users and resellers to verify that backups will properly recover, so they can protect themselves and their customers against corrupted backups. Along with CloudBerry’s Advanced Notification and Alerting System, Backup Consistency Check helps users preemptively identify issues that can lead to failed data restores. In so doing, CloudBerry brings a feature set to small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) that is typically only available in advanced enterprise data protection software.
“We work to regularly introduce new features so that SMBs and resellers can fully leverage the cloud for their backup needs without having to worry about the status of their saved data,” said CloudBerry Lab CTO Alexey Serkov. “Backup Consistency Check addresses a serious problem with current backup strategies,that unfortunately, often only becomes apparent when IT needs to recover from a backup. Relying on corrupted backups that won’t restore is like having no backup at all.”
Data can become corrupted during the backup process due to direct access to cloud storage, an internal issue with the cloud storage provider, or in the local backup scenario, users replacing the disk or Network Attached Storage device with another device missing actual backup files. The challenge with backup consistency is that often, the issue is identified only after it’s too late: when users seek to recover lost or otherwise inaccessible files or data. To ensure seamless recovery, CloudBerry has made it easy to implement regular, proactive backup consistency checks.
CloudBerry Backup provides thousands of resellers and MSPs with reliable, powerful and affordable managed cloud backup solutions for the SMB market. In addition to offering real-time and/or scheduled regular backups for simple data backups, local disk image, or bare metal restore, CloudBerry employs block level backup for maximum efficiency and provides best-in -class alerting features allowing resellers to track each backup and restore plan remotely. Data is protected via 256-bit AES encryption with keys controlled only by end-users, while confidentiality is enforced through transparent exchange whereby only end-users have access to the actual data residing on the cloud.
Those seeking to leverage low cost cloud providers without giving up reliability of service, security and ease of file restore now have easy access to a feature set designed specifically to safeguard the data and files backed up on Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, HP Cloud, Rackspace, IBM Softlayer and several other public cloud storage providers.
