UltraBac Gets Unix Support Back
Version 7.1 of the software gains new Unix agents, plus incremental backup support for Windows 2003.BEI Corp.s UltraBac Software division last week launched UltraBac 7.1, adding new Unix agents, plus incremental backup support for Windows 2003, officials said. The software, for midsize companies and large companies departmental use, is available now starting at $495 per server. UltraBacs 6.x series had basic Unix support, which was removed in Version 7.0 as part of an architecture redesign. "Now theyre back in, but theyre improved," said Chief Technology Officer and co-founder Paul Bunn, in Bellevue, Wash. "Now the enumeration is done dynamically. Weve also added for the first time AIX and HP-UX agents." FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris are also supported.
Besides support for Windows 2003s Virtual Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which UltraBac will support later this year, the software can now restore individual files and has its own version of incremental backups, Bunn said.
