Backupify Winter Release 2012 Launches with Additional IT Control Features for Enterprises on Google Apps

Improvements to Industry's Most Comprehensive Backup for Cloud Application Data Accelerates Customer Growth

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Backupify, the leading provider of online backup services for cloud application data, today launched "Backupify Winter Release 2012," the new version of its backup and recovery solution for enterprises using Google Apps. Designed to better meet the needs of larger organizations that have more complex internal structures, legal requirements and subdomains, Backupify for Google Apps now provides customers with a strong set of administrative control features and a centralized interface for managing their business-critical data stored in the cloud.

The Winter Release delivers on Backupify's promise of incorporating new features based on customer feedback during the initial launch of the Enterprise Edition of Backupify for Google Apps in August. With larger organizations receiving automated backups three times per day, Backupify has remained committed to providing enterprise-level organizations with the industry's most trustworthy and comprehensive backup and restore solution.

"This year Google Apps in the enterprise space has reached new heights and we'll continue to see enterprise-level organizations migrating to the cloud in increasing numbers," said Rob May, CEO and co-founder of Backupify.  "Larger organizations like the Museum of Modern Art, the Financial Times, Jawbone, Park Hotels and Auberge Resorts, and leading academic institutions like Berklee College of Music and Rice University trust Backupify to safeguard their Google Apps data. As we work with these organizations to ensure they always have a secure second copy of their data, we've developed better tools that give more control to the administrator while managing multiple sets of daily backups."

Backupify for Google Apps now includes the following advanced data management and admin controls for enterprise organizations:

Multiple Administrator Management provides enterprise organizations with multiple administrators across different departments, business lines and locations with a central portal to manage a Backupify account. Now, a company can empower multiple Backupify Administrators to easily and securely add users, or initiate a restore or export on behalf of their end users.

Audit Logs provide a comprehensive audit log, which allows administrators to monitor all actions within their Backupify account, including those taken by both the administrator and end users. Each log entry includes action type, action description, username, IP address and timestamp.

Subdomain Management allows administrators to easily add and securely manage the backups for multiple Google Apps subdomains from one Backupify account, providing the three times daily backups to all existing accounts under the parent domain.

"Backupify makes it easy for our administrators to manage the growing number of Google Apps users and data within our organizational structure," said Dave Ouyang, IT Manager at leading residential solar company, Sungevity, Inc. "Our confidence in Backupify is based on its ongoing developments with Google Apps as Sungevity continues to grow. With Backupify, our mission critical data is always being backed up across the company no matter how many users we add to the cloud."

The new release comes on the heels of the company's rapid growth in 2012. With more than 5,000 paying business customers to date, Backupify reached the following milestones in the past six months:

  • Grew data under management to more than 900TB
  • Grew number of stored Gmail messages by 35 percent to 3 billion
  • Grew number of documents backed up by 29 percent from 500 million to 700 million
  • Added the one-millionth online account for backup; across the services that we support, Backupify is now backing up more than one million accounts in total

Backupify for Google Apps is available for larger organizations through two plans. The Enterprise Edition is $4 per month per user, which requires a minimum of 25 seats and includes unlimited storage. The Enterprise Plus Edition backs up an unlimited amount of users with up to one terabyte of data for $990 per month, with the option to buy additional storage as needed.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
