Dolly Drive Adds Throttle to Let Users Control Bandwidth and Upload Speeds During Time Machine Backups to the Cloud

  (October 27, 2011)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) October 27, 2011

Dolly Drive, online backup for Apples Time Machine, has released its version 1.5 upgrade, adding a bandwidth throttle that gives users greater control of internet speed used during Time Machine backups to the cloud. The throttle increases and decreases easily by sliding horizontally, as simply as increasing the volume on your speakers. It is part of a revamp of the user interface panel which gives users easier access to Dolly Drives breadth of functions including backup, disaster recovery and soon to be available online storage.

The upgrade to Dolly Drives Lion and Snow Leopard-ready backup application means users can reduce the amount of bandwidth used during Time Machine backups to the cloud, simultaneously giving Mac users greater upload and download speeds for other bandwidth-intensive activities like streaming, Skyping, and browsing.

This upgrade reflects the commitment of our team to listen directly to Dolly Drive users throughout development said Anthony Palermo, CEO of Dolly Drive. The new bandwidth throttle solves a challenge that our users were sharing with us as a desired improvement.

When Time Machine performs a back-up using an internet connection it tries to use all your available internet speed without considering that you may need this speed for other purposes.The throttle lets you continue backing up without suffering a loss of performance in other bandwidth-heavy functions.

The increased control will be particularly helpful for Dolly Drives Business users, since even with multiple Dolly Drive backups running on the same network, there is no longer competition for bandwidth.

Dolly Drive is a subscription software and online storage service designed for Apples Time Machine. In addition to providing Mac users offsite cloud storage directly through the Time Machine application, the application allows users to create a bootable clone of their Mac on an external hard drive for local disaster recovery. It works with Apples Lion and Snow Leopard platforms.
