First off, Happy New Year, everyone!

We at Jungle Disk had a great holiday season and hope it was the same for you and yours. About a month ago, I wrote about the release of version 3.18 of the Jungle Disk Server Edition software. After a month of having it out in the wild, we’re very pleased with the rate of adoption for both new and upgrading installs. As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to follow up with some reports on performance of the new version of the client. With the help of Tom Welch, our Senior Systems Engineer, we’ve put together an analysis of our tests and crunched some numbers around the success rates of our customers’ backups. Before I dig into the details of our analysis, let’s go over how we performed our testing.

We performed the following tests:

We used each version of Jungle Disk Server Edition (3.16 & 3.18), and to best emulate the use of our customers, we performed three different runs of a backup:

The data selected for backup was identical for all testing.

To perform these tests, we used a windows server in our infrastructure that is already provisioned for backups.

Here’s what we found:

Further, after examining some of the data that the client records and sends to our database, I was able to run some calculations on the rate of success for our customers’ backup jobs. Being a bit a nerd about data and statistics, I dug into the data I was able to collect and found some very interesting numbers.

We also looked at the success of Server Edition backups over the previous 14 days and we were able to improve the quality again.

I’ve got to say, I’m extremely pleased and excited with these statistics! Being in the business of protecting people’s data, reliability and speed are two of the most important things for a customer, and we’ve absolutely improved every aspect of your experience with version 3.18 of Jungle Disk Server Edition.
