Long standing flaw in Microsoft Windows Server Backup finally overcome! Now Exchange 2007 aware thanks to BackupAssist

Melbourne, Australia, February 19, 2009 - In a World's first, Melbourne based company Cortex I.T. Labs Pty Ltd has introduced a solution that makes the in-built backup program in Windows Server 2008 capable of backing up Exchange Server 2007.

BackupAssist, the company's flagship product, now features a plug-in that makes Windows Server Backup able to properly back up Exchange Server 2007. This capability was omitted from the native operating system, leaving thousands of system administrators unable to back up their Exchange Server without expensive 3rd party solutions.

"Finally, with BackupAssist, it's possible to back up Exchange 2007 from within the Microsoft Block-level-backup Engine" said Linus Chang, Managing Director of Cortex I.T. "We've had countless people complaining about the limitation in the native operating system, and asking us for a solution."

"We're very excited by our latest version of BackupAssist which features this new plug-in, because it means that businesses can finally backup Exchange 2007 in an inexpensive way, overcoming a long standing limitation in the Microsoft Server Backup architecture."

With the market now searching for smarter, more effective and more cost efficient ways of data protection, Chang believes that the popularity of BackupAssist's Exchange 2007 plug-in for Windows Server Backup will be a hit. "Already we've had a lot of interest from end users, VARs and MVPs, and once word gets out, I'm sure a lot of people will be exceptionally happy to discover our solution."
