Version 9.4: Full SQL Server 2016 support and more!

BackupAssist SQL Server 2016 support

If you’re a user of v9, you know it’s our most exciting edition yet. We’ve introduced several powerful new features, from rapid VM guest recovery to the introduction of bootable backups.

Now there’s even more reason to celebrate. Just two weeks ago, Microsoft released SQL Server 2016, and hot on the heels of this release we’re proud to announce BackupAssist’s support for it.

SQL Server 2016 is the world’s fastest and most price-performant database for Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP). Its query processing power runs up to 100x faster than the 2014 edition. Read about its features here.

As of our newly released v9.4 update, BackupAssist offers full SQL Server 2016 support. That means you can upgrade knowing you’ll still enjoy BackupAssist’s full range of functionality for your SQL servers.

Whether you’re using v9 or an earlier version of BackupAssist, upgrade or update your software here. If you’re new to BackupAssist, try out our product fully featured and free for 30 days!

More Features for MultiSite Manager in v9.4!


MultiSite Manager is a fantastic tool for remotely managing different server sites. But you’re probably thinking it would be even better if you could create User Accounts and then give people access permissions to selected sites.

That’s what we thought too. So now you can as of our latest update! Now instead of just viewing reports you send, you can let users check the status of their site’s backup and recovery jobs, software version and licensing.

Multisite Manager is all about making your life easier. If you’re not using it already, we recommend you try it fully featured and free for 30 days.
