Vembu StoreGrid is proud to announce the availability of the latest version of StoreGrid v4.2.5. This upgrade release for StoreGrid will add a large set of exciting new capabilities for our channel partners, end-users, and administrators of StoreGrid. You could upgrade your current StoreGrid v4.2.1 from your partner zone accounts and experience the new feature packed StoreGrid, v 4.2.5.
Some of the key features in this release include:
Hyper-V Backup in Cluster environment
On popular request by many partners, StoreGrid users will now be able to backup the vhd files available in the CSV (Cluster Shared Volumes) thereby simplifying storage management in the Hyper-V virtual environment.
StoreGrid will now support an agentless backup of virtual machines available under XenServer. Users can backup the selected Guest OSes and then upload the snapshots to the backup server directly without storing the data locally saving you time and the necessity for extra local space allocation.
Streaming for Exchange 2007 backups
We had supported exchange streaming in Exchange Server 2010 in our previous edition, StoreGrid v4.2.1. In this release, StoreGrid will support streaming of Exchange server 2007 database backups giving you faster backups of all the associated exchange files without any manual intervention.
SMTP Server configuration at Reseller and Customer levels
While it was possible to send email reports only from the providers SMTP servers in the previous editions, now it is possible to configure email reports from individual reseller’s and customer’s SMTP servers.
Ability to add new clients directly as paid clients
In the new release of StoreGrid v4.2.5, the providers have the option to add clients as ‘paid client’ in the backup server bringing simplicity in management and licensing of clients for the service provider.
Replication status report in the the replication server
A new status report for replication showing the status of the replication jobs similar to the backup status report. The report can also be filtered based on the Servers, Resellers, Customers, Clients.
Daily space usage report for reseller/customer/client
Another minor but a key report for viewing the daily disk usage of individual Resellers, Customers or Clients for a specific period.
