Remote Backup Systems Releases RBackup V11

(Memphis, TN July 8, 2010) Remote Backup Systems [], founders of the online backup industry and developers of the RBackup and Mercury OEM Online Backup platforms today announced the release of a major upgrade, RBackup Version 11, now available as a self-hosted commercial online backup solution for MSPs, VARs and other service providers.

“We are extremely excited about the release of Version 11. It really is the best and most inclusive product of its kind we’ve seen on the market,” said Remote Backup Systems CEO, Rob Cosgrove. “We are particularly proud of the number of enhancements we were able to include in this release. Service Providers in the Online Backup industry will find this to be a very powerful and valuable solution. It was developed out of their own suggestions.”

One of the most notable improvements in RBackup Version 11 is the new licensing system, which deploys licenses in a new way that allows more flexibility in deployment, and will allow Service Providers to distribute fully branded Client software at a fraction of the previous cost. RBackup v11 introduces two new client editions in addition to its industry-defining Windows Server edition. The new Windows desktop edition and the Personal edition use fewer credits than the Server edition. All three editions are standard in all RBackup purchases.

In addition to the new version of RBackup, the company announced a feature-filled Web Manager PlugIn providing full Server and user control on the web, and an integrated web based registration, recurring billing, credit card processing, and software deployment system.

“RBackup version 11 with its Web Manager and E-Commerce PlugIns now provides a complete turnkey solution for starting a fully web-based Online Backup Service at an affordable price in record time,” said Cosgrove, “Less than an hour, really.”

Also introduced in RBackup Version 11 are per-user bandwidth throttling and free trial accounts. Free trial accounts do not deplete paid Licenses. Cosgrove hopes this will prove to be a valuable marketing tool for Service Providers.
