Lifting the Vail on Microsoft Small Business Server 2011

Vail, Aurora, and Breckenridge (collectively known as ‘Colorado’) were the codenames given to Microsoft’s new Windows Home Server and Small Business Server (SBS) platforms.  Here are some preview screenshots of KeepVault v4.0 running in the new SBS Essentials 2011 environment.

Easily installed and configured, KeepVault for SBS supports backup to both a local or network device and simultaneously to secure online storage.

The console has been completely re-written from KeepVault v3.x for Windows Home Server, to take advantage of the new layout with the ‘Colorado’ platform.  Users are able to enable/disable protection of the built-in ‘shares’ and also specify specific folders for protection.  Backups can be encrypted and compressed; encryption always occurs before sending the data over the Internet. A full discussion on the new features in KeepVault v4 will be forthcoming, shortly before its release in mid March.

The popular KeepVault Connector functionality will continue to be available.  KeepVault Connector installs a lightweight client on your Mac + PC computers.  This client then automatically and in real-time archives new and changed files in monitored folders to your WHS or SBS.  KeepVault Connector functionality is available over both your local area network and via the Internet (requires you enable remote access).  It is a great way to ensure that company or personal files are always backed up.
