Upgrading software is not a difficult task. Nowadays most of it is done automatically through a single press of the update button. An upgrade of a server environment or one that affects a lot of users, asks for planning a maintenance window. Also more preliminary actions such as making a backup of said software should be taken, but it basically comes down to the same press of a button. This also applies to updating your BackupAgent Cloud Backup Platform.
BackupAgent will host a series of webinars on March 1st for partners in which we will present our roadmap for 2012. In this webinar we will explain about exiting new features for version 4 as well as our plans for our next major release, BackupAgent version 5.

Last week one of our partners was in urgent need of support since one of his clients was recovering from an apocalyptic disaster. Because of the nature of business it was crystal clear that the customer would go bankrupt if critical data could not be recovered. We had to make sure all data was restored in a consistent state.
