Windows 7 isn't officially out until October, but if you want to start an online backup service and make sure you can still use it once upgraded to the new operating system, Proxure has something to offer.

The company announced Tuesday the availability of version 3.15 of its KeepVault backup solution. The new version provides support for Windows 7 (both 64-bit and 32-bit) as well as Windows Vista and Windows XP.

The company also announced a special version of KeepVault that works with Windows Home Server, a special OS from Microsoft designed specifically for network storage devices such as the HP MediaSmart LX195 .

The KeepVault backup solution offers an online storage account and an easy-to-use interface to provide continuous, real-time, off-site backup for Windows computers. Apart from online storage, the software can also perform local backup to internal and external hard drives.

Proxure offers online backup services that start at $4 per month for 40GB, which is a rather good deal. In addition, the KeepVault software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers at any location and supports an unlimited amount of users. Many other backup software programs only allow for a limited amount of computers or users. Proxure online backup also allows for failure notification via Twitter, e-mail, or SMS in case a backup job doesn't finish properly.

The KeepVault backup solution is available now and you can try it risk-free 15-day trial version here.
