Cloud Backup Solutions – Yet Another Upgrade

The Cloud Backup Solutions platform was successfully upgraded at the weekend to version 4.3.5.2.

Following our upgrade last week to version 4.2.1.8, we were committed to ensuring that the latest available v4 features and functionality are available to our customers.

Of note, this includes:

– The CrashPlan app can now be installed separately for each user account on a single computer. This provides greater capabilities for backing up NAS devices via a Windows share.

– Support for dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 and all-IPv6 network configurations.

– New look-and-feel for the iOS CrashPlan mobile app (requires iOS8 or later).

– Security updates.

– Performance and stability improvements.

This will be the last major upgrade for a while until we have been able to perform further testing and development of our fully automated billing platform and the API.

Cloud Backup Solutions – Service Upgrade

The Cloud Backup Solutions platform has been successfully upgraded this weekend to version 4.2.

There are a large number of improvements to the platform overall, but of note, includes but is not limited to the following functionality improvements:

– We now support the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which offers another option for ensuring data is highly secure.

– Security updates.

– Performance and stability improvements.

– Better handling of individual files selected for backup with large amounts of metadata (over 1 MB per file).

Once all our customer devices have automatically upgraded to the latest version of the backup application, we will be enabling the AES 256-bit encryption method across the board, providing even more security of our customers data.

Continual Improvement

As our service grows we are committed to ensuring that the platform remains stable. Our customer base regularly benefit from being able to restore their files and folders in emergency situations, confident in the knowledge that their data is encrypted, secure and safe in our cloud.

Case Study – Don’t fall victim to data loss!

A customer of ours was recently victim to a dreadful ransom-ware virus, that rendered their business server unusable. Their only option was to pay US$500 or restore from their backups.

Thankfully, Cloud Backup Solutions backed-up data cannot be affected by ransom-ware viruses, trojans or any other sort of malicious computer bugs, and we were quickly and easily able to guide our customer through restoring all their data from a previous known safe point once the server had been fully formatted and reinstalled.

Cloud Backup Solutions supports Mac OS X Yosemite

Our Cloud Backup Solution has been upgraded to fully support backup clients on Mac OS X Yosemite, released by Apple on 16th October 2014. You may need to download legacy Java 6 (Java for OS X 2014-001) from Apple at http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 if you do not already have this installed. The backup client will prompt you to do so, if this is the case.

All existing clients will be upgraded automatically whether they are running Mac OS X Yosemite v10.10 or not. There are a number of performance and security updates for all clients. On the server side, amongst other security updates there is a specific update to disable SSL 3.0 protocol and prevent POODLE attack.
