New York, NY (May 15, 2012) – BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the availability of the latest version of its best-of-breed online data backup and recovery solution, powered by Asigra. The updated BUMI solution now includes expanded integration with NetApp storage solutions, increased performance for VMware backups, support for Mac OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard, and an enhanced Network Operations Center for improved visibility and better control over customers' backup environments.
"We're very excited about this new release and how it will allow us to provide even better protection and world-class support to our clients and service partners," said Jennifer Walzer, CEO of BUMI. "The biggest challenges we've seen these organizations face are the explosion of data and the growing complexity of the IT environment. Both of these issues can significantly impact the backup window and impede the restore process. Since the upgrade, we've seen a boost in our ability to take care of our clients and help them overcome these obstacles."
Key features of the new release include:
- NetApp API Level Integration – Organizations using NetApp storage solutions now have the ability to integrate seamlessly with BUMI using using NetApp's Snapshots. Taking just seconds for even very large data sets, snapshots quickly free up hardware for the next job, significantly reducing Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and greatly enhancing Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).

- DS-NOC: New Network Operations Center – The DS-NOC gives BUMI resellers and referral partners an intuitive, Web-based interface for real-time visibility and control. At a glance, administrators can see the status of licenses, capacity usage and backup completion for each of their clients.
