BackupEDGE 03.02.00 Build 2

As you know, in 03.02.00 Build 1 we added UEFI support. Build 2 improves on our GPT support and adds some debugging capabilities. We’ve also updated our communications libraries with the newest and most secure builds, and we’ve added support for the recently released Ubuntu 17.10, code name Artful Aardvark. Remember, RecoverEDGE in 03.02.00 supports UEFI in modern Linux distributions.

New Lower Pricing / Requirements on P2V Procedures

We’ve lowered the price on P2V (Physical to Virtual) Conversions for OpenServer 5.0.7, OpenServer 6 and UnixWare 7.1.4.

  • The P2V fee has been reduced to $1,250 (or $1,500 if performed during non-Microlite business hours) from $1,500 (or $2,000 if performed during non-Microlite business hours).
  • The BackupEDGE Support and Maintenance Subscription requirement is reduced to 2 years from 5 years.
  • The Site Survey and report fee remains the same.

More information may be found on our website P2V section. Please contact Microlite Corporation or your Authorized BackupEDGE Reseller for P2V services.

Lone-Tar Users – Special Offer – Limited Time

We have been asked by a number of our clients and partners to do something for Lone-Tar users since competitive upgrades were discontinued last December. So we’re going to make a one-time special offer. This offer will end on Friday, December 29, 2017 (the last business day of 2017) and will never be repeated.

All BE3REL (standard retail license) activations sent in by noon on December 29, 2017 and accompanied by proof-of-purchase for a Lone-Tar license purchased since January 1, 2010, will receive a two-year Support and Maintenance Subscription instead of one-year at no additional charge. This represents a $135 value at purchase time, or a $150 or $225 value on a Subscription renewal or extension for a second year.

Note: If you purchase a BE3REL and…

  • fail to activate it by December 28, 2017, or
  • fail to include a Lone-Tar Proof of Purchase from 2010 or newer with the registration

it will receive a standard single-year Support and Maintenance Subscription whenever you sell, register and activate it.

Call to order today. This is the last time we will make this offer.

Pardon Our Webdust

We are in the process of deploying a new web site designed using the latest responsive HTML5 and CSS techniques, which should make for a better viewing experience, especially on mobile devices and tablets. New sections will also be added. If you are on our site during the conversion process and find that we’ve missed or moved something that you reference frequently, please let us know. The menu bar on the top right will have most things that don’t appear elsewhere.

Please see the Microlite Website for more details and additional information about Microlite Corporation and BackupEDGE.
