Archiware has released PresSTORE 4, a major update to its suite of backup, archive, and synchronization software. The new software has a long list of features, including:
- An entirely new interface, reorganizing every menu for a much more intuitive experience
- An iPhone app for monitoring your PresSTORE server and receiving alerts (storage full, etc.)
- Desktop Notification Service to bring more information to users and administrators
- Global log searching
- A common schedule for Synchronize, Backup and Archive
In addition, individual modules have also been improved. Synchronize now has a many-to-one mode, a one-click snapshot function, and includes full support for Xsan FS Events. The Backup module includes support for progressive backups (to consolidate multiple incrementals into a new full), tape redundancy, and point-in-time snapshots. Backup2Go can throttle by network or CPU load and perform end-to-end encryption. Finally, Archive now uses an plugin architecture for external preview generators, so data of almost any type can be previewed.
