Review About Centralized Backup Solution

“We use several of Handy Backup Workstations and Server Agents operating on a central management base for our HQ office and branches. It was Handy Backup 7 but we are just decide to upgrade to the 8th version, which provides even more backup features. We work with databases, websites and emails on different machines, and it’s a great relief to have all tools for collecting backups from these computers and servers on centralized mode. Good job!”
