SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Zmanda, a leading global
provider of open source and cloud backup solutions, announced the latest
releases of Amanda Enterprise and Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL,
which simplify backup management and recovery for small to medium-sized
businesses (SMBs) operating in heterogeneous environments. Zmanda solutions

With the latest enhancements to these solutions, SMBs can seamlessly back up
and manage a wide variety of databases and applications through a centralized
backup server to disk, tape or cloud storage.

their backups more challenging, and often more complex," said Chander Kant,
President of Zmanda, a Carbonite Company. "With the new versions of Amanda
Enterprise and Zmanda Recovery Manager, we continue to deliver on our
commitment to simplifying backup management for SMBs so our customers can
focus on their business, not their backups."

"By developing intuitive interfaces, the Zmanda solutions further enable
system administrators to easily manage their backups, and they can rely on
active monitoring and reporting to give them confidence in the robustness of
their infrastructure," continued Kant.

Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL Streamlines Management of Multiple Servers
ZRM for MySQL – a mission-critical backup solution designed specifically for
MySQL databases – provides a comprehensive backup management solution. ZRM for
MySQL is particularly useful in environments with multiple MySQL databases and
can integrate into any network backup infrastructure. With ZRM, instead of
implementing and monitoring a MySQL backup script on each MySQL server, MySQL
database administrators can centrally install and monitor backups of MySQL
databases across the enterprise.

The release of ZRM for MySQL 3.5 brings disk space and network usage
optimization and enhanced backup reporting, along with simplified management
to help configure backups quickly and intelligently. Additionally, ZRM for
MySQL 3.5 now supports backup of MySQL Enterprise Edition, MySQL Community
Edition, SkySQL, MariaDB, and MySQL databases running on latest versions of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu and Windows.
