Zmanda Upgrades Open Source Backup App

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Zmanda, the leader in open source backup and recovery software, introduced a major upgrade of its flagship product - Amanda Enterprise Version 3.0. The world’s leading open source backup and recovery product now offers high-end features and functions that make it optimal for protecting modern data centers – including disaster recovery to the cloud and enterprise-level media and device management – all at a fraction of the price of proprietary solutions.

“Zmanda is challenging the way backup products and services are being delivered by offering more choice and flexibility—a refreshing proposition for users who don’t want to lock up data in proprietary formats or proprietary clouds,” said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “The latest release of Amanda Enterprise introduces media and cloud enhancements that provide alternatives for how and where applications and data are protected and how customers pay for it. Given the economic climate, Zmanda may provide a welcome relief to customers’ backup ails.”
