Retrospect Supporting Dropbox

As cloud storage destination

Retrospect, Inc., makers of Retrospect Backup & Recovery software, announced cloud storage support for Dropbox with integration with the latest release of Retrospect’s hybrid data protection solution.

Retrospect 11.5 for Windows and Retrospect 13.5 for Mac allow Dropbox users to backup their data off-site to Dropbox, including Basic, Pro, and Business accounts.

Dropbox is used by more than 500 million users to store their information in the cloud and synchronize it across their devices. According to a survey conducted with Google Consumer Survey of 1,000 SMB owners in the US, 49% of SMBs use Dropbox at work. Businesses are able to combine Dropbox cloud storage with Retrospect’s cloud backup feature set, including zero-knowledge security with AES-256 encryption.

Dropbox support was the most requested cloud storage provider among our customers since cloud storage support was released earlier this year,” says Jean-Christian Dumas, VP of WW sales. “Integrating Dropbox support in Retrospect allows customers to take advantage of Retrospect’s hybrid data protection with on-site and off-site backups of critical business data.

90% of our customers use Dropbox to store and share files. It makes sense to use Retrospect to protect these systems too, and with Retrospect’s AES-256 encryption, we truly have a secure cloud storage. Dropbox is free forever for 2GB of storage and scales up to 1TB and beyond with an affordable yearly subscription, making it an attractive choice for small businesses,” says James Rothschild, JRP Support.

In addition to Dropbox, Retrospect continues to expand its growing list of certified cloud storage providers with AWS Mumbai, Swisscom, and Cloudian, Inc.. With Retrospect, customers are not locked into a service provider, and migrating their data to a different one only takes a couple clicks.

With every certified cloud storage provider, Retrospect allows customers to protect their entire environment on-site on disk and tape or off-site in the cloud, giving them instant access to files and systems locally with the added protection of a remote backup.

This latest software release also includes
two new features to help SMBs manage their environments:

  • Server Configuration Management: Businesses can manage their Retrospect configuration through an import and export interface, with cross-platform support and per-module import settings. 
  • Reduced Storage Footprint: Retrospect’s storage footprint has been reduced for backup metadata on media when using compression, with storage savings of up to 90%.

Retrospect 11.5 for Windows and Retrospect 13.5 for Mac are certified
for the latest system updates to Windows and Mac:

  • Windows Server 2016 (pending final release)
  • Windows SQL Server 2016 (Windows only)
  • Windows Server Core 2008 R2, 2012, 2016 (pending final release)
  • Windows 10 anniversary update
  • macOS Sierra 10.12 (pending final release)

Along with the latest system updates, Retrospect continues to support older systems including Windows XP and OS X Snow Leopard, ensuring businesses have coverage in case of accident, failure, or disaster.
