Tolis Group Inc. has announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference the release of
Bru Server for Mac OS X 1.1, a new version of its network data backup software that features a revamped user interface which presents information in a roadmap-like format. The company also announced that a new synchronization module will be available for the software in the third quarter. The new synchronization module will allow a network administrator to allocate some server storage capacity to users so that they can back up and recover their own files. Bru Server 1.1 is a free upgrade for users covered by Tolis’ extended technical support agreement; it requires Mac OS X v10.2, a G3 500MHz or better processor, 256MB RAM and 55MB disk space on the server and 15MB disk space on the client systems. The full version comes in three editions — Basic, Network and Enterprise — starting at US$379, with the synchronization module a standard feature in the Enterprise edition when it becomes available.
