San Diego – August 26, 2014– Storix, Inc., providers of disaster recovery solutions for Linux and Unix systems, today announced the general availability of System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) version 188.8.131.52, which includes support for the latest release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 7.
“The RHEL7 boot process is significantly different from previous releases and we have worked very hard to ensure customers have the protection they need,” said David Huffman, President/CEO of Storix, Inc. “As a Red Hat Ready Partner, we have been working for some time to ensure our support was available soon after the RHEL7 release.”
