Jungle Disk Launches New Server Backup for Businesses

Today Jungle Disk, LLC, a subsidiary of Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE:RAX), announced the release of Jungle Disk Server Edition, the newest addition to the Jungle Disk product line that gives small to midsize businesses an automated and affordable way to back up servers in the cloud. Jungle Disk continues to provide security and flexibility to its customers by utilizing AES-256 encryption with an additional user-controlled key and by providing a choice in cloud storage providers. Additionally, Jungle Disk offers customers an unlimited amount of storage with a unique pay-as-you-go pricing of only $0.15 per gigabyte.

Jungle Disk Server Edition builds on the core storage technology of the Jungle Disk product line, and offers an entirely new backup engine designed from the ground up for handling large, complex backup jobs. And the immediate, Internet-based accessibility of backed-up files on Server Edition allows users to transfer data back to servers, helping to maintain business productivity even in the event of a server crash or hard drive failure.

With this launch, Jungle Disk now offers a full portfolio of business products that address the backup and storage needs of both small and midsize businesses.

“We have always tried to work collaboratively with our customers to enhance and continually improve our products with the features to boost productivity and give peace of mind that files and data are secure, protected and readily accessible,” said Dave Wright, founder, Jungle Disk, LLC. “Today we are expanding our portfolio with two new products, and adding a number of enhancements to our existing Desktop and Workgroup products that both underscore our commitment to innovation and build on services that our customers trust for their data.”

Systems administrator at Stauffer Glove and Safety Ed Crotty has been testing the beta of Jungle Disk Server Edition for backing up Stauffer’s systems remotely. As the product becomes generally available, he plans to expand the use of Server Edition to back up additional servers and keep off-site data encrypted.

“As a fourth-generation-owned business that has been in existence for more than 100 years, minding the matters of the company is something that is taken very seriously,” said Crotty. “We looked at multiple solutions, and the ones with the best balance of price and performance are always at the top of the list in any technical decision. Therefore, Jungle Disk Server Edition made a lot of sense to us. We trust Jungle Disk for protecting and keeping our business data secure.”

Product Availability

Jungle Disk also announced enhancements to Jungle Disk Workgroup and Desktop Editions, as well as a new back-up only service, Simply Backup. Jungle Disk products are available for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. To purchase or obtain more information, see http://www.jungledisk.com.
