Earlier today I posted about how AppAssure does archives. Today we released AppAssure 5.4.2, and this release provides several improvements to the AppAssure's archive capabilities.
- Incremental archive: Ability to add incremental recovery points to an existing archive. Update existing archives with incremental changes since the last archive on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
- Scheduling: you can now set up a recurring schedule for your archives (daily monthly or weekly). The schedule allows you to overwrite an existing archive, or "incrementalize" an existing archive with new recovery points.
- Cloud as an archive target: Now supported cloud platforms can be chosen as an archive target. We support the following cloud platforms:
- Microsoft Azure
- Amazon S3
- Any OpenStack-based cloud provider.
You must already have an account with a supported cloud storage provider, and then you can add your cloud credentials in AppAssure.
Once you've done that, you'll be able to choose that cloud provider as a cloud target for exporting archives, or be able to import archives back from that cloud.
What do you think about this new ability.
