Retrospect: Hybrid Backup Software With Cloud Storage for Mac and Windows

$119 for Retrospect Desktop and up to $2,899 for Multi Server

Retrospect, Inc. introduced a hybrid backup solution with Retrospect v11 for Windows and Retrospect v13 for Mac.

These versions support integrated cloud backup to Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, DreamHost, and other company-certified cloud storage providers. Off-site data protection is a critical piece of any business's data protection strategy, as corporate data is always at risk from accidental loss, malicious threats, or natural disasters. Keeping a copy of critical data in a separate location safeguards it against loss, providing a further layer of protection. In addition, an off-site location can securely store archived content that is no longer in use.

Cloud backup support offers following advantages:

  • Cost effective: Public cloud storage providers like Amazon and Google offer the lowest prices for storage with a pay-for-use model, rather than flat-fee storage tiers.
  • Zero knowledge security: Industry-standard AES-256 encryption assures customers that their data and their encryption keys remain theirs, regardless of whether their cloud storage provider suffers a security breach.
  • No cloud storage lock-in: The cloud storage landscape is evolving fast, and customers are always able to find the best fit for their environment by migrating between providers.
  • Advanced seeding and large scale recovery support: Bandwidth is a limiting factor for cloud backup, so Retrospect supports seeding options for the initial backup and large scale recovery for large restore scenarios.
  • Private cloud support: software is certified to backup to Basho Technologies, Inc.' Riak CS, an open-source software that allows partners to run a private cloud in their own data center. Partners can quickly set up their own private cloud for their customers to utilize.

The addition of public and private cloud backup to Retrospect is great news for companies that want the ability to backup to a medium that is on site as well as having the safety net of data being stored off site.

Performance-optimized grooming
Software v11 for Windows and v13 for Mac include a new performance-optimized grooming mode that is up to 5x faster. With grooming, customers stay protected with a long-term backup retention policy to ensure recovery from yesterday, last week, last month, or five years ago, using storage that fits their budget. Performance-optimized grooming enables customers to quickly leverage this space-saving process.

Other Enhancements
This release also offers other features and performance enhancements:

  • Performance improvements: Backup and restore are up to 20% faster with under-the-hood optimizations. Catalog rebuild is up to 3x faster with a fast rebuild mode. With these improvements, the solution delivers shorter backup windows and reduced recovery times.
  • Exchange 2016 certification: software is certified for Exchange 2016 database protection.

Pricing for Retrospect ranges from $119 for Desktop, which protect a single non-server computer and up to five additional networked computers, up to $2,899 for Multi Server, which protects as many Mac, Windows, and Linux servers and PCs as your bandwidth and storage capacity will allow. Upgrades range from $69 to $2,399.
