Data management service provider, Backupify has announced the Summer 2011 Edition of its Google Apps backup service. This new edition features Backupify’s CloudSight search service — a new feature that makes it easy for IT administrators to locate items anywhere in the archive in addition to new Dashboard and Notifications panels to simplify domain-wide administration.
Previously only available to beta test users, CloudSight Search is now available for all Backupify for Google Apps customers. Full search capabilities for Google Apps data will follow later this summer, said Backupify.
Backupify for Google Apps also includes other features to optimize the Google Apps experience for business users including the ability for domain administrators to download all data associated with a given user account to a local archive. This functionality is particularly essential for inactive accounts and streamlines the process of merging data between Google Apps user accounts.
“The new capabilities of the Summer 2011 Edition are now available, at no extra cost, to all Backupify subscribers backing up a Google Apps domain. Since its initial release in 2010, more than 4,500 businesses have chosen Backupify to safeguard their critical information in Google Apps. Recently, The Museum of Modern Art in New York selected Backupify to protect their data as it migrated more than 1,000 accounts from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps. After evaluating competing alternatives, they chose Backupify for its ease of use, the ability to restore data quickly and its cost-effectiveness compared to other solutions. As a result, the Museum was able to realize significant cost savings, prevent downtime due to data loss, and focus more IT resources on its day-to-day business.
“‘Backupify has become synonymous with sleep — as in I sleep well at night knowing all of our Google Apps Email, Calendar, Contacts, Docs, and Sites are automatically backed up,’ said Russell Greenwald, Director of IT Services for Crimson Hexagon. ‘Google’s service has been stable, but there are no mechanisms to protect against accidental or even malicious deletions. The team at Backupify has been very responsive to all of our needs, and the product just works. It’s a great value on top of it all.'”
