This makes RESTORE one of the most popular open source backup software solutions available today.

“This overwhelming support from the open source community demonstrates the need for a backup solution with the features and usability of RESTORE,” said Garret Acott, President of Holonyx.

Holonyx also announced the release of the RESTORE 4.0 final version.

RESTORE provides backup for Windows, Novell NetWare, Mac OS X, UNIX, Solaris and Linux systems. It is scalable to a complete backup solution for multiple workstations and servers in distributed network environments. In its latest release, RESTORE offers a user-friendly graphical user interface and the ability to edit existing targets.

The RESTORE Data Center version also offers a unique architecture that supports the provisioning needs of hosting providers and gives them the capability to sell remote backup services for PC’s or servers.

RESTORE provides scheduled backups as well as the capability to back up computers in multiple physical locations. In addition, no client agent is required for RESTORE; the systems being backed up need only grant RESTORE secured access. End-users will also be able to restore the files of their hosted websites should local copies become lost or damaged, and be able to select from multiple versions backed up at different points in time.
