Network Backup - Simple and Reliable
“We’ve really been impressed by the multiplexing technology, which has essentially cut our backup times in half. It’s been much faster than Netvault, and the DataCenter solution feels more developed for tape. The local technical support has also been fantastic, any time I have a question the response has generally been 20 minutes or less.”
“NovaStor support has really impressed us with their dedication in resolving difficult issues. To make a long story short, NovaStor support worked with the NAS engineers and helped them uncover a bug in their firmware that was the cause of the failing backups. Since the firmware bug was fixed and implemented, our backups to the new NAS have been working without a hitch.”
“I enjoyed having a direct line to NovaStor’s knowledgeable technical support team. Our prior backup software provider had me explain everything to junior team members before connecting me to the people who could solve the issue.”
DataCenter 5.4 offers a new generation of software for centralized network backup. In close cooperation with channel partners and customers, over 50 product improvements have been implemented. This is the fastest, most stable DataCenter release to-date, offering users a simpler and more reliability backup and restore experience for heterogeneous networks. All support is US-based by in-house NovaStor engineers.
NEW DataCenter introduces bare metal recovery for Linux platforms based on Relax-and-Recover (ReaR) technology. The Open Source solution ReaR, creates a bootable rescue image for complete physical and vitual Linux system restores to different hardware. This new ReaR feature is seamlessly integrated into DataCenter's Disaster Recovery operations allowing users to restore their Linux systems in addition to their Windows systems. The entire recovery process can be fully automated, offering data centers the ability to restore large amounts of data in a short period of time.
NEW Enhancements to the user interface for tape management offers improved viewing and editing of tape libraries. Tape library entries and updates are processed significantly faster for more expedited viewing.
NEW The latest version of DataCenter offers an improved Dashboard with enhanced system monitoring. With new quick-view backup status checks, Administrators can rapidly respond to backup issues as they arise.
NEW Optimized algorithm for synthetic backup handling offers significant usability improvements. Users can now intuitively access synthetic backups without any additional training or technical assistance.
With NovaStor DataCenter you have the option to setup and maintain multiple locations, departments, and users within your company’s backup infrastructure. Assign rights to let users see only the information they really need, without having irrelevant content blocking their GUI. This also ensures that users cannot modify backup jobs which can prevent potential data loss due to human error.
DataCenter offers an impressive degree of automation for Data Availability Groups (DAG) in Microsoft Exchange. This provides you with simplified backup and recovery of Exchange installations that are optimized for high data availability.
Experience superior data availability and productivity with the ability to search for and recover individual mailboxes at the item level within Microsoft Exchange. DataCenter restores at mailbox-level, whether you need several mailboxes or a single email directly from the database archive. Non-email item recovery is also supported including Calendar items, Notes, and Tasks – via simple drag and drop functionality. Recover directly to a mailbox or to PST File. One Step single item restore directly from VMware GIR Backups (Granular Item Restore).
Enjoy consistent SharePoint backups handled through a single, simple backup. Perform a full SharePoint restore, or a fast single item-level recovery with full fidelity. Restore from “standard” Sharepoint backups with temporary restore functionality. One Step single item restore is possible directly from VMware GIR Backups (Granular Item Restore).
DataCenter offers improved media handling, including single tape drive, and offsite media management. The ability to intelligently define tape volume cycles, including Grandfather-Father-Son backup scheme ensures data integrity.
Remote check of mounted volumes and overwrite protection features offer preventative protection against accidental data loss when incorrect media has been targeted.
Fast and simple setup of personalized GFS rotation schemes for reduced backup time and administration. Backup media and backup server function independently, insuring the integrity of GFS rotation schemes. Individual media pools selectable for each rotation, offering maximum flexibility and redundancy.
Virtual machines that are setup as a cluster (CSV Volume) can be backed up from any cluster node to conveniently generate a cluster-wide snapshot, capturing the entire CSV. In this case, the other Hyper-V cluster nodes continue to run with full performance and are not affected by the backup. Virtual machine live-migration allows you to move an entire virtual machine from one physical server to another without experiencing downtime.
NovaStor DataCenter offers simple and clear reporting and monitoring functionality. This includes the ability to generate not only global reports, but also the ability to access multiple levels of detail. For example, when backing up multiple SQL databases, a report can provide results for the total backup job, and yet also allows for the results each individual database in a single click.
Manage all current Windows and Linux systems, as well as VMware and Hyper-V environments with only one data protection solution, NovaStor DataCenter.
Customize the monitoring based on your needs. Hide the columns you don’t need and setup the GUI to show you exactly what you want to see.
With DataCenter’s monitoring you are able to:
NovaStor DataCenter utilizes your hardware perfectly. Run as many backup jobs as your storage allows you to. No matter which type of backup medium you are using, DataCenter backs up to and restores from all of them using proven backup strategies like:
Rotation schemes like Grandfather-Father-Son help to prevent data loss in the long term. With DataCenter you can use your current hardware or you can upgrade your IT infrastructure with the technology you always dreamed about. No matter which hardware vendor you prefer, NovaStor DataCenter will keep your data safe.
NovaStor Datacenter’s distributed architecture improves stability, performance, scalability, and creates a rock-solid foundation for your data protection needs.
In case of hardware failure, several failover media pools redirect the backup job to another storage or even another backup server.
For a maximum restore success rate, metadata is stored in separate locations. A restore can be initiated any time any place (ATAP):
Not having a central bottleneck (due to distributed architecture), DataCenter pushes data with multiple streams to the backup medium. Up to 128 streams are able to back up and restore your business critical data.
The high performance datamover uses multithreading and optimized compression to distribute the processing load to both the client and the storage. The system load stays minimal and the backup window remains short.
Shorten your backup windows by streaming multiple backup and restore jobs across multiple servers to one device all at the same time.
NEW Relax-and-Recover (ReaR) Linux bare metal disaster recovery integration. Storage agnostic Image Backups for complete system restores to different hardware for both Windows and Linux environments.
Cost-effective protection in the event of the loss of individual fuses: Making copies of selected backups on different backup servers and at other sites.
Less downtime: Support of cluster configuration ensures optimal availability of production applications.
Minimizing system load while maintaining the highest data throughput: Optimized compression distributes the processing load to both the client and storage medium.
Reduce the size of backup data with deduplication. NovaStor’s backup format optimizes and increases performance on deduplication hardware appliances and Server 2012 (R2) operating systems.
Backups and restore runs even when central management is not available. Centralized backup management for branch offices is also possible via WAN connections.
Less manual intervention, better availability. If a backup media or backup server is unavailable, backups are automatically sent to fail-over resources.
Multistreaming accelerates data recovery speeds. With advanced ATAP (Any Time, Any Place) restores, a direct restore is possible offline on the client - using only the backup medium and a drive.
