Beta Length

I just installed the Beta, which is listed as a trial, I installed it today and it says I have 155 days left.

How long is the beta for? Is it a timed beta, 155 days, or is it set to expire on a particular date?

Will the real version be available before the trial is up?

155 it will expire

155 it will expire 155 days from now, and I assume the final product will be out long before then.

Separate purchase for Dedupe Option ?

OK, great.

So in this case it seems that the Dedupe option is a separate option to install (and buy), therefore I can just get that option as new purchase.

I heard that February 2010 is the release date for this product, can't wait for that time to come.

Puredisk integration

I have installed the BETA successfully, but the documentation is a little sketchy on how to setup BE 2010 to connect to a Puredisk SPA for offsite backup.  Is this feature available in the BETA?  If so, is there any other documentation other than the Admin guide that I can use to get this setup?

Hi All Guys I download and
