Farewell to an Old Friend

We wish to thank everyone—from around the world—who trusted its ability to protect their data, and shared its reliability with their peers.

Important Changes

Customers who are currently under active maintenance contracts using v3.5 of Alike Standard or Alike DR will be eligible to upgrade their licenses to 4.0, once it is released. However, please note that there will be no upgrade path from v3.5, so your system will require a clean install. We will publish more specific instructions on transferring your current licenses in our Knowledge Base. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time with questions about this process. Be sure to stay tuned for our release notes and other news about Alike 4.0, which is scheduled to be released later this month.

We take pride in being one of the first and best software  backup solutions for XenServer, and we look forward to a promising future as a company. As we continue to fine tune our expertise and expand to other platforms, such as Microsoft Hyper-V, we want to be sure to thank all of our supporters for making us one of the most reliable BDR software companies out there.

As for Alike Free, it’s adjusting to retirement quite well…
