Disk-Based Backup Software Now Supports 64-bit Windows Server 2008

Scottsdale, Arizona USA, 30 July 2008 --  Lockstep Systems, Inc. today announced the release of Backup for Workgroups version 4.1, which now supports 64-bit Windows Server 2008. Backup for Workgroups is a disk-based automatic backup software program designed for Windows servers, desktops and laptops.

“With the introduction of Exchange Server 2007, which only runs on 64-bit Windows Server 2008 or 2003, many small companies are now finding that they now have both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers running in their operations,” said Karl Forster, president of Lockstep Systems, Inc. “As these businesses install new Exchange Servers, Backup for Workgroups can backup both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers.”

Designed for small businesses, Backup for Workgroups is easy to use and delivers key enterprise-class features at an affordable price; keeping overall data protection costs to a minimum. It operates as a client/server application, with the server side software centralizing the storage of the backup data to disk-based media. The Backup Client software is installed on each computer to backup and ships as both a native 32-bit and 64-bit application. The Setup program installs the appropriate version of the Backup Client based on the version of Windows that is running.

Backup for Workgroups is available direct from Lockstep Systems, Inc. The suggested retail price is $99 per client and $199 per Open-File Add-On with volume discounts available.
