Intronis ECHOplatform 5.7 offers simplified backup set management

The Intronis ECHOplatform, a software-only BDR platform built specifically for MSPs, enables you to protect, recover, and restore SMB files, folders, emails, applications, and servers — physical or virtual — both locally and in the cloud. And this morning, the Intronis ECHOplatform got even better.

Today, MSP partners using the Intronis ECHOplatform woke up, poured a cup of coffee, and logged into the portal to be greeted by a fresh, newly designed interface for backup and restore.

The all-new ECHOplatform 5.7 release is chock-full of new features and enhancements designed to make your work day easier.

Enhanced User Interface

The first thing you’ll notice about the new Intronis ECHOplatform release is that the portal looks different. Our developers have redesigned the platform to make it easier for you to centrally managing your network protection services. Thanks to HTML5 and JAVA technologies, the same Intronis ECHOplatform features are now accessible through a friendlier, more efficient UI that no longer requires Silverlight to access.

Backup Performance Enhancements

The new Intronis ECHOplatform 5.7 release also provides performance enhancements for faster backups.

“Faster backups will help save MSPs time, especially when multiple backup sets are running from a single agent,” said Chris Crellin, Sr. Director of Product Management at Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda. “This means we’re using production system resources more efficiently, and we’re better able to meet partners desired RTOs and RPOs.”

Microsoft Hyper-V Offline Backup Support

Additional backup enhancements available in the 5.7 release include Windows Server 2016 support, VMware vSphere 6.5 support, and Microsoft Hyper-V offline backup support.

Due to intermittent VSS errors in Microsoft Hyper-V, legacy partners with multiple VMs have had to restart the VSS service when receiving errors in the past. Offline backup allows fail-over to the offline backup mode when backing up a Hyper-V virtual machine. This means if a problem occurs, we can quickly shut down the VM, take a snapshot, and turn it back on automatically.

Favorite Features

Of course, the other popular Intronis ECHOplatform benefits are still available, such as:

  • Intronis QuickSpin and Rapid Recovery for Hyper-V to easily backup multiple VMs in minutes
  • Integrations with major PSA and RMM tools
  • Physical-to-virtual (P2V) image recovery, object-level restore, and fast RTO with image backup
  • 100-percent white-label platform and rebrandable sales and marketing materials
  • Application-native protection to reduce downtime and automate point-in-time captures of structured data, and minimize data loss while increasing productivity through synchronized restores
