September 16, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Melbourne, Australia September 16, 2009 - "How do you best backup a Hyper-V server?" That's the single question that's been striking fear and panic into even the most experienced IT pros. But thanks to a new Hyper-V backup solution from BackupAssist, all the fear and uncertainties are a thing of the past. Renowned Australian software entrepreneur and backup strategist Linus Chang, will be appearing at SMB Nation's Fall 2009 Conference in Las Vegas in October to reveal this new solution, live.

In a possible world first, Linus will reveal how to perform Hyper-V backup for unlimited hosts and guests, as well as achieve granular restores without needing a PhD in computer science. And in typical BackupAssist style, this solution will slash thousands off the average SMB's total backup and recovery bill.

"The issue of Hyper-V backup has been particularly sticky. The major competitor's solution starts from about US$5000, which is way too expensive for the average SMB, so it has been a major stumbling block for SMBs to adopt virtualization technology" says Linus. "It's taken us nearly a year to design and produce our own solution - including well thought-out recovery procedures, but with a total price tag under $800 we know it'll be a hit!"

BackupAssist is a pioneer in the SMB backup software industry, providing simple and straightforward solutions to complex problems. Since its creation in 2001, BackupAssist has taken the market by storm, going from zero to backing up over 50,000 servers in 91 countries in a very short period of time.

"The reason we've been so successful is because we do something other software suppliers don't." says Linus, "We ask our customers what they want. We also ask our customers to test our products in real business environments. It means our product is inexpensive, simple and really works for SMBs the big software companies are just too far removed to understand the problems SMBs encounter day to day" he adds.

Linus will present this new solution at the Sponsor Presentation Room 111 at 4:40pm on October 3 during the SMB Nation Conference. "It's just a short overview to outline my Hyper-V backup solution" Linus says modestly, "I'll be manning the BackupAssist stand myself every day during the event, so I can give advice and help people having trouble with Hyper-V backups, one-on-one."

"I'm keeping most of the details about our new Hyper-V backup product quiet right now" he says mysteriously. "If you want to find out more, you'll have to be at SMB Nation in Las Vegas. "
