What’s Happening at IDrive?

It’s been another very eventful few months here at IDrive. Here’s what we’ve been up to….

New Product Launches

  • IDrive Vault — a 4TB hybrid backup appliance allowing you to backup data locally for faster backups and restores, and to the cloud as it includes 4TB of IDrive cloud backup space for recovery from any type of data disaster.

  • Smart Docs —  snap a photo from your mobile phone or tablet, and Smart Docs recognizes each detail, stores a copy of the document, and automatically creates important reminders for you. With cloud-based convenience, Smart Docs gives you access to all your documents from anywhere.

  • IDrive One — back in January at CES we announced our latest external storage drive, IDrive One, available now for IDrive users. One serves as a versatile local backup device with its 1 or 2TB storage capacity, and lets you stream media directly to your iOS or Android device from up to 150 feet away. Also SSD versions are available in 128GB and 256GB SSD!

Back-to-back winners of PCMag Award, and more

Every year PCMag compares the leading backup solutions to find out who’s offering the best cloud backup in the industry. The grading system takes into consideration usability, security, backup speeds, features, and more. For the second year in a row, IDrive won the top spot. To find out why, read Michael Muchmore’s review at PCMag.com.

IDrive was also named one of Lifehacker’s top choices for online backup in 2016, along with being chosen as one of the best business backup solutions by TechRadar. Oh, and don’t forget CloudPro, who rated us as one of the best backup solutions for the UK in 2016.

VMware Backup Launched

IDrive now supports virtual machine backup for VMware software. VMware enables you to run several different operating systems under one roof through virtualization, but protecting VMware environments with traditional backup can be costly, slow, and complicated. That’s why IDrive has developed a cost-effective and easy-to-use cloud backup solution to keep your VMs secure from disaster and easily accessible from the cloud.

Re-launched RemotePC

Managing your backups and accessing family photos or critical business info from a distance can be difficult. That’s why IDrive was excited to announce that we have re-launched a new and improved RemotePC, one of the most affordable and feature-packed remote access solutions available, enabling users to access and manage their PCs or Macs remotely from desktops, laptops, smartphones or tablets, at anytime.

The New Dashboard

Earlier this year we came out with our all new Dashboard, making it easier for IT Managers, Administrators, and families to easily check on the health of their backups. With the new Dashboard you can manage devices and sub-accounts, see when the most recent backups occurred with results, make changes to backup sets and settings across all devices, and more.

That’s it so far for a busy 2016, and it’s still only August! Stay tuned to see what else we have in store.
