Today we officially released version 4.2.1 of the BackupAgent server software to our partners. Last week we already announced the release and also upgraded our own cloud to this new version.
The main new feature of this new release is the unlimited multi-tenancy and branding capability, which also enables BackupAgent to offer new services
We can now offer partners a tenant login to the BackupAgent Cloud, which is functionally the same as hosting your own platform in a datacenter. This can be integrated with most control panels we already support today, including Parallels Automation and WHMCS.
Branding in the APS Package
A new version of the BackupAgent APS Package will come available very soon to take full advantage of all the branding capabilities of Parallels Automation. This package requires partners to upgrade to the 4.2.1 version.
SQL Server 2008 as user database
We now install and support SQL Server 2008 as a user database when hosting a BackupAgent server. However SQL Server 2005 is still supported as well.
Please note that version 4.2.1 can no longer be installed on Windows 2003 server. We require partners to migrate to a Windows 2008 platform to use the latest version of our server software.
