Windows Server Protection for the Rest of Us.
No More Excuses. You work too hard to place your business at risk.
NovaBACKUP Business Essentials is the only professional backup solution that securely protects all types of business data and application files – without add-ons or plugins. Over 70% of small businesses either don’t backup their data at all or fail to adequately protect their most important asset through proper backup.
Considering that most small businesses don’t have a dedicated IT person on staff or the time necessary to learn and implement an adequately backup plan for their data, this statistic is “almost” understandable…but no longer an acceptable excuse.
Your excuses STOP here. Your data is so important, that NovaStor is dedicated to removing any obstacle or excuse that is keeping you from making the decision to move forward.
- Price – you will not find a comparable value.
- Fear – You can’t go wrong with a backup expert on your side to advise you, so you make the right decision for your environment.
- No IT – A NovaStor professional will be available to install and set up your first backup.
- No Time – Everything is automated so you can focus on your business, not your backup plan.

Local & Online Backup for Industry Best Practices
To maintain best practices for Windows Backup, use a combination of local and online backup. Use local backup devices such as external hard drives, USB media, CD/DVD/Blu-Ray, tape drives, NAS, FTP, etc. for quick restore access and mirror image disaster recovery. Then push critical, irreplaceable data to the cloud for offsite redundancy ...with 2GB FREE online cloud storage and completely scalable options.
Full Disaster Recovery (Image Backup) for Hard Drive Failure Protection
If your hard drive crashes, we’ve got you covered. Disaster Recovery creates an image backup of your computer; an exact copy of your old system including the operating system, applications, data, preferences, and email settings. This allows you to recover everything exactly as it was on your old hard drive onto a new computer, even with dissimilar hardware.
Completely Secure, Virus-Free Backups
NovaBACKUP offers secure government-grade data backup and disaster recovery with 256-bit AES encryption. To ensure that your data backups are free from viruses, NovaBACKUP also runs a virus-scan on your data.
Fast Backup Speeds. 4x Faster Backups than Competition.
As part of your backup plan, you can use automatic scheduling to update your backups with bit level incremental or differential changes in-between your full backups. This makes for super-fast backups, 4 times faster than the competition.
Includes Phone Support and Upgrades.
With NovaCare Premium, we’re here to help you when and where you need it. You get direct access to live technical phone support and free upgrades to the newest features and support for the latest operating systems.
