IDrive Rolls Out Full System Image Backups

Los Angeles-based online storage and backup service IDrive is extending further into the enterprise side of the disaster recovery and backup market, saying this week that it has added disk image backup--the backup of entire system drives and operating systems--to its suite of services. The company said the service is aimed at allowing its users to recover their systems in the event of system crashes and other disasters, which it says is specifically important for larger organizations with business continuity needs. Pricing on the new service was not announced. The new backup supports just the Windows operating system.
