According to a recent press release, “CloudRanger, the simple backup solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced the launch of its newest software, which simplifies users’ experience and provides more control over the cloud. The new version offers users effortless scheduling and backup policies, while providing a bird’s eye view of the entire server system from one easy-to-use dashboard, ultimately saving users time and money. ‘As everything begins to move to the cloud, we see increasingly more cloud users, including many without a technical background. With this shift, visual server management will quickly become essential, as we will see cloud usage surge across industries,’ said CloudRanger Chief Executive Officer, Dave Gildea. ‘When we set out to design the new software, we spent a significant amount of time talking with our customers, and based on their feedback, we completely scrapped our old software and built this new version from scratch’.”
The release goes on, “Key features of CloudRanger’s new platform include: (1) Server Management: CloudRanger gives users an overall view of their entire server system, including when individual servers are powered on, when backups occur and how long backups are stored. (2) Automated Scheduling: The scheduling module enables users to turn on servers only when needed, providing a more economical solution to server rental. (3) Backup Policies: Users can easily and regularly backup servers by setting a creation schedule and retention period, with the option to apply Amazon tags or other events identification. (4) Multi-region Backup: Improved disaster recovery management enables users to choose a second backup in alternate location to further protect against disaster and lost data. (5) File-level Recovery: Users have the option to drill down to file level to choose individual files to recover when restoring a backup.”
