LogMeIn Launches On-Line Backup Services
Posted on 19-Apr-2006 10:57. | Tags Filed under: News.



Using the secure, high-speed connectivity of LogMeIn, computer users can now automatically backup important files to any number of remote and local computers, store them securely and recover them instantly, without additional hardware, or relying on third-party storage.

Created by LogMeIn, Inc., the new LogMeIn Backup quickly, easily and instantly establishes a backup, storage and retrieval network among existing remote PCs, in just minutes. Users simply choose the data to protect, where to store it, and the backup schedule.

The company also provides a desktop remote access service that allows users of mobile devices such as Pocket PCs or laptops to access a PC over a network.

LogMeIn disclosed some information from market research firm The Diffusion Group, showing that the amount of digital data generated in the home will grow from about 322 GB per home in 2005 to 1,933 GB in 2010. Yet more than half of all broadband households backup their data less than two times a year.

With LogMeIn Backup, data from financial reports to photos are safeguarded against hard drive crashes, theft, viruses, or accidental deletions. There are no limits on the amount of data transferable between systems, and the size of backup is limited only by the available hard drive space. If data loss occurs on one computer, retrieval is just a few clicks away on any other PC connected to a user's LogMeIn Backup system.

Users install LogMeIn Backup on two or more computers, and designate groups of files and folders ("Backup Sets") to be routinely and automatically sent to their machines on which Backup Sets are stored ("Storage PCs"). Backup Sets are stored in a proprietary format on the Storage PC and are easily restored later if disaster strikes, such as a hard drive failure or virus infection.

All Backup Sets are sent via 256-bit SSL, and optionally stored in a password-protected, encrypted state on the Storage PC, ensuring that only the user who stores the data can access it.

LogMeIn Backup beta is available now, and general availability will be by 30 April 2006. The basic backup network costs US$6.95 per month and includes the software for two PCs. Additional PCs can be added to a network for US$5.95 a month.
