CloudBerry Lab has released CloudBerry Backup version 1.3 – an application that allows users to backup their data online to their Amazon S3 accounts.

CloudBerry Backup is also available as a Windows Home Server add-on. It integrates with the WHS console and offers scheduled backup to cloud storage, hosted on Amazon S3.

According to the company’s announcement, newer version features full support for Windows Home Server Drive Extender that lets users seamlessly increase disk storage by adding new drives. These do not appear as new drive letters, but simply increase the available space.

Backup Window is a new feature of the scheduler that help specify for how long backup job should run so that it for example only runs during the night time while not impacting users computer performance and network bandwidth in the day time.

Besides, there is an improved support for the operations involving Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service.

CloudBerry Backup works on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. Command line interface allows partners and advanced computer users integrate backup and restore plans with other routines.

A single-user license for CloudBerry S3 Backup 1.3 for Windows costs $29.99. It will be offered without charge to students, educational institutions and non-profit organizations.

CloudBerry Lab was established in 2008 by a group of IT professionals with the mission to help organizations in adopting Cloud computing technologies “by closing the gap between Cloud vendor propositions and consumer needs through development of innovative low-costs solutions.”
