I’ve just been catching up on some blog feeds and emails that I haven’t had a chance to read in recent weeks. Apparently PHD Virtual dropped version 5.3 of their backup and replication product on the world.
It’s now more efficient and each Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) can handle 8 concurrent backup / restore operations.
The replication features of the product look handy too with the ability to use a portable drive to “seed” replicated servers thus minimising the amount of WAN traffic transmitted.
There’s a “What’s New” 7 minute video on YouTube that explains all of these bits that I just watched. Now I just need to find some time to run it up in the lab!
