CHENNAI, INDIA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Vembu Technologies today announced the availability of StoreGrid Service Provider Edition v3.0, a new version of Vembu's award-winning online backup software, specifically designed for large-scale deployments. Master MSPs (managed service providers), large MSPs, and hosting providers can now use StoreGrid v3.0 to provide their resellers and customers with scalable and reliable remote backup services featuring industry-leading performance and manageability.

"Vembu already has a well-established partner base of MSPs and Hosting Providers who depend on StoreGrid as their online backup offering for small- and mid-sized deployments," said Sekar Vembu, founder of Vembu Technologies. "Now, with StoreGrid v3.0, we've enhanced and optimized the technology to provide effective and affordable backup services for large-scale deployments."

Enhanced features of StoreGrid v3.0:

--  Clustering & Load Balancing -- StoreGrid backup server installations
    can now be configured into a cluster, and new backup servers can be
    dynamically added to handle increased loads. This ensures effective and
    reliable scalability, without any changes on the client side.
--  Hierarchical Management Structure -- A StoreGrid server web portal
    enables all parties to have customizable "self-service" management access
    for their backup deployments. Resellers, customers and end-users can access
    and administer their backups, run restores, and download restored files
    through the management portal.
--  Advanced Reporting -- Increased reporting capabilities with events and
    alarms help service providers proactively monitor, identify, and manage
    problems when they develop.
--  Web Services APIs -- StoreGrid v3.0 provides access to internal data
    and functionalities through its Web Services APIs. This enables MSPs to
    integrate StoreGrid into other third-party platforms, and customize and
    brand the solution to meet their needs.
--  Replication to Amazon S3 -- StoreGrid backup server can now be
    replicated to Amazon's S3 Cloud storage for backup data redundancy.

StoreGrid 3.0 offers the same client-side features that have become a hallmark of Vembu's products, including backup of MS Exchange Server (to the mailbox level), MS SQL Server, and MySQL. StoreGrid also backs-up Outlook, the Active Directory and System State.
