Small businesses depend on their computing infrastructure, but they lack the resources of a larger company’s IT staff. They need backup software that just works and is accessible from anywhere, and the MSPs that they rely on need the same set of features.
Backup 16 is focused on enabling small businesses to monitor and manage their backup environment with tools:
Management console – With hosted service, customers can monitor and manage their entire Retrospect infrastructure from a single pane of glass, at their desktop or on their phone.
Storage groups – Protect an entire backup environment up to 16x faster with a single, centralized destination that Retrospect can use simultaneously. With ‘Storage Groups’, customers can run parallel backups to the same disk or cloud destination.
Deployment tools – MSPs and IT administrators have better tools to deploy and update their Retrospect clients automatically with built-in auto-updates and third-party workflow integration.
With Backup 16, small businesses have a set of tools to protect their entire environment, from servers to endpoints across Windows, Mac, and Linux.
