LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IDrive Inc., leading online backup and cloud service provider, today announced its new Express Database Plug-In for it's already successful service, IDrive Express. The service uses a physical drive to ship large amounts of data to a user's IDrive account, eliminating bandwidth usage, which slows upload speed. Targeting businesses that utilize database servers and needing faster backup or restore, IDrive has released this new plug-in to work in association with the service.

The IDrive Express Plug-In is available free of charge for IDrive Business users and works with MS SQL, MS Exchange, and MS SharePoint Server databases. Once a customer requests and receives an IDrive Express drive (up to 3TB), they simply select the data from their database to add to the physical drive and ship it back to IDrive. It's then transferred from the device to secure servers and can be accessed from the customer's IDrive account. This quick initial data transfer cuts down on the upload time, which could normally take days or weeks with the immense amount of data stored on most database servers. Users may commence with incremental online backups via the plug-in thereafter.

"In the cloud backup community, there are no other companies offering a solution like this to reduce the upload time for consumers that need to backup database servers," says Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive. "We recognize that business continuity often depends on speed and uninterrupted workflow, so we created a plug-in for our Express Service that provides a faster backup and restore process and encourages continuous productivity."

The IDrive Express service is free three times a year for Pro Business users. After that, it'll cost $59.95, shipping included. The service can be utilized for data backup or retrieval, up to 3 TB, and is available in the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Australia and the UK. The Express Database Plug-In is always free of charge to download and use.
