Retrospect 14.0 backup software for Mac released with Backblaze B2 support
Retrospect, the long-running suite of backup software, was updated today to version 14.0 for Mac users. The update is headlined by the support of Backblaze's B2 API, a low-cost cloud storage solution and alternative to Amazon S3 and others.
Retrospect offers what the company calls hybrid data protection aimed at small and medium businesses. The product offers cross platform protection for Mac, Windows and Linux clients, and can be used to back up desktops, laptops, and servers.
I took the Mac app's beta version for a test spin in order to test out the Backblaze B2 integration, and it worked as expected. I was able to perform a selective backup of the files on my Desktop, and was able to see the resulting backup files after logging into my Backblaze account.
