Company: Novosoft, LLC
Published: 29 August, 2017
Alliance, Ohio, August 28, 2017 – Novosoft, LLC updates its popular Handy Backup software to create even more comfort and functionality for Linux users. The unified, mighty solution dedicated for creating automated backup and restore actions for all types of data existed now has a complete, proof-tested compatibility with the latest Ubuntu 16.04 LTS stable edition of Ubuntu Linux, a popular choice among different Linux users throughout the world. Besides tested compatibility, a new release contains some features helping effectively backup Linux server data, including a multi-user operational mode. The Windows release, Handy Backup 7.9.3, also contains some crucial improvements providing more efficient online backup, especially in complex and heterogeneous networks.



As Anton Chmarak, the Head of Handy Backup Development Team, said, «We will continue to develop our Linux branch, including not only Ubuntu but also CentOS and other distros in a nearest future. Our new release is a proof for our intentions to bring a mighty, unified Linux backup tool into a market. Besides being a fully native Ubuntu backup software compatible with a Windows counterpart, our program has some unique features for Linux backup only, including a multi-user support. The Windows-oriented release, Handy Backup 7.9.3, also has some upgrades for online backup features, especially completely updated Yandex.Disk and renewed Backblaze plug-ins».



The new version of Handy Backup for Linux has a fully tested compatibility with Ubuntu 16.04, a popular Debian-based long-term service (LTS) release of a popular OS Linux distributive, which, in turn, makes a base for many other distros (e.g. Linux Mint). A user can install and update this Linux backup software solution automatically, using a dedicated repository with all the components of the program. To create and control Linux backup and restore activity, a Linux edition can use a remote Windows machine running a GUI for controlling all tasks, or instead, run a GUI component with a standard Wine emulator. This approach eliminates a difference between Windows and Linux visual components, creating a common control environment for a user or an administrator in a heterogeneous network.



Unlike a Windows edition, the Linux backup solution from Handy Backup has a unique feature of multi-user support. One instance of Handy Backup can run different tasks starting under different user accounts, presuming these accounts have enough rights to access Linux backup and restore data. The multi-user support can be crucial for such tasks as Ubuntu 16.04 server backup, with many users and processes working simultaneously under just one server frame.

An addition is a newest Windows update, specified as Handy Backup 7.9.3, which contains renewed concepts for online backup plug-ins, especially for Backblaze and Yandex.Disk clouds. These renewed offsite backup tools allow users saving their crucial data to accessible, affordable cloud services and restore the information where and when they have a need for it.
