Jungle Disk launches new server backup in cloud

Offers new backup engine for handling backup jobs

By CBR Staff Writer

Jungle Disk, a subsidiary of Rackspace Hosting, has extended its product line with the release of Jungle Disk Server Edition, which gives small to midsize businesses an automated way to back up servers in the cloud.

The company said that it offers security and flexibility by utilising the AES-256 encryption with an additional user-controlled key and by providing a choice in cloud storage providers. In addition, it offers customers storage with a pay-as-you-go pricing of only $0.15 per gigabyte.

According to Jungle Disk, the new offering builds on the core storage technology of the company’s product line, and offers an entirely new backup engine designed for handling large backup jobs. The internet-based accessibility of backed-up files on server edition allows users to transfer data back to servers, helping to maintain business productivity even in the event of a server crash or hard drive failure.

The company has also made enhancements to Jungle Disk Workgroup and Desktop Editions, and a new back-up only service Simply Backup. Jungle Disk products are available for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.
