2018 will be an exciting and busy year for CubeBackup.
We have been hard at work on version 3.0, which is only a few months away. Many new features and changes have been incorporated into this version, including parallel backups, Team Drive support, and the ability to run CubeBackup as a service. A more complete list of changes has already been posted here.
At the same time, development of version 4.0 is already well underway. Here are some of the new features to look forward to:
1. Time Machine Backup
All older versions of Google Drive files will be kept, as well as snapshots of the entire Google Drive structure.
2. Backup to Cloud Storage
CubeBackup has always allowed full G Suite backups to local storage, including local disk, NAS or SAN. Version 4.0 will add the ability store your G Suite business data backups on Amazon’s S3 cloud service.
3. Full Platform Coverage
Version 4.0 is being completely rewritten in Go on the service side, along with a new web UI for configuration and operations. This will make CubeBackup platform independent so it can easily be deployed on both Windows, and Linux.
Version 3.x is fully compatible with version 2.x, which means the upgrade should be smooth and incremental backups will still work. However, version 4.0 will not be compatible with earlier versions. A new complete backup will have to be taken.
Version 3.0 should be available in 2 or 3 months.
Expect version 4.0 later this year.
