i-2-S3 Recent Changes Log



Data compression option added.

Effective date: July 22, 2010

With this release, level 1.06, i-2-S3 now supports using data compression prior to sending a backup set to Amazon S3 for storage. This option is available on the S3SAVOBJ, S3SAVCHGOB, S3SAV and S3SAVLIB commands. i-2-S3 offers the settings of *NO (no compression, the default setting), *YES (a medium compression) and *HIGH (the best compression option). Using compression can cause more processing on your server prior to tranmission to Amazon, but the resulting transmission time can be reduced along with the charges from Amazon for total storage used.

Backup details report added.

Effective date: June 16, 2010

With this release, level 1.05, i-2-S3 now has a printed report showing the object details for every object in a backup set stored at Amazon S3. This report can be produced for any backup set stored.

Automatic transmission retry processing added.

Effective date: March 25, 2010

With this release, level 1.04, i-2-S3 now includes automatic retry processing when a transmission error causes a save (send) operation to fail. A retry limit has been implemented and i-2-S3 will automatically retry your save process until it is either successful or the retry limit is reached.

Save elapsed time now captured and shown.

Effective date: March 25, 2010

With this release, level 1.04, i-2-S3 now captures and shows the elapsed time for all save (send) operations. This information is rounded to the nearest minute and provides you with the ability to measure the time for backup operations with Amazon S3.

New report option added.

Effective date: February 8, 2010

With this release, level 1.03, i-2-S3 now includes the ability to generate a printed report showing all of the current backup sets stored at Amazon S3. If a backup set is encrypted, the key needed to decrypt the file is included.

Data encryption option added for all save and restore operations.

Effective date: December 3, 2009

As of i-2-S3 Release 1.02, all save operations have an option to encrypt the save set prior to sending it to be stored at Amazon S3. All restore operations have also been changed to allow for the use of a decryption key to decrypt a save set during restore processing.

Target release level now supported for all save operations.

Effective date: October 5, 2009

All of the save operations implemented in i-2-S3 now support an optional parameter for the target OS level. The save file created can be restored to the OS level specified.
