08 October 2013: Announcement
On behalf of AX64 and all our users, I have an exciting announcement!
In order to create the best product we can, the team at AX64 have decided to merge its pool of talent with brother backup company ‘RealCopy’.
Both RealCopy and AX64 have roots that run deeper that you know, with both our teams having worked on each other’s products for a number of years. The result of this means that we are already familiar with each other architecture and as such, the transition to a single development force will be easier than ever.
So what does this mean going forward?
Simply, it means a better product for you guys. Instead of competing we’re collaborating. Instead of fighting, we’re growing together.
We will gradually shift our focus away from AX64 and begin trading under the RealCopy brand. Furthermore, our developers will be working around the clock to integrate AX64’s key features into the already impressive feature set that exists within Realcopy (Hardware independent restores, a more robust engine and virtualisation to name a few).
AX64 will still be available on our original site, but our focus shall shift towards the development of a new and improved RealCopy available at www.realcopy.com. Please note that the current RealCopy site and version available is old. You can expect a full site overhaul along with a brand new release of RealCopy with AX64 features integrated soon.
What should you expect?
A better, faster and more robust backup solution wrapped up in an intuitive interface that is ever more beautiful and powerful than before. We will continue our dedication to great support in the next release of RealCopy as we have done so in the past with AX64. In the lead up to this, support for AX64 will slow down as we shift our focus towards the development of RealCopy. We will also shortly announce a plan for existing AX64 paying customers.
Excitement on the horizon
We can’t thank our users enough for their support of both AX64 Time Machine and RealCopy. Our teams, now united as one, strongly believe that the backup industry is going through a period of innovative stagnation. We believe current backup solutions are plagued by an excess of minor additions that have resulted in an end user experience that is bloated, over complex and dated in design. To this end, both Realcopy and AX64 have vowed to respect the end user at any cost and in every respect: his time, his user experience and everything between. This lies at the crux of our design philosophy. This means that now, even more than ever, we want to get our users involved with discussion, feedback and development!
In summary, we simply can’t wait to have you guys get your hands on what we’re working on next.
For now, stay tuned.
Sincerely, The RealCopy and AX64 Team
