MSP360 Backup 5.8 focuses on security, disk storage optimization, and a few other important features highlighted below.
Support for Changed Block Tracking (CBT) in VMware ESXi
VMware's Changed Block Tracking (CBT) automatically tracks virtual disk modifications. MSP360 Backup support for Changed Block Tracking allows us to use this information to more quickly perform an incremental backup of your virtual machines.
Disk Capacity Tool
The Disk Capacity Tool allows you to visualize your local disks by displaying a breakdown of folders and folder sizes. This allows customers to easily understand the sizes of folders and how they affect total backup storage.
Increased Amazon EC2 & Microsoft Azure disk restore limits
Amazon and Microsoft recently increased maximum disk volume sizes for their virtual machines.
The new disk volume limits for EC2 and Azure virtual machines have both changed as follows:
- 2 Terabytes for MBR-partitioned disks
- 4 Terabytes for GPT-partitioned disks
MSP360 Backup 5.8 includes support for these larger disks on both EC2 and Azure.
