Free download for NovaBACKUP 10 provides new functions for free choice of online storage provider and the smoothest online backup experience ever

NovaStor, a pioneer in data protection solutions, has seamlessly integrated independent online storage services into its single workstation and server backup software NovaBACKUP.  The new update for NovaBACKUP 10 lets customers choose freely which leading edge storage provider they wish to select for online backup and off-site storage.

Central Management for Online Backup and Off-Site Storage

NovaBACKUP protects data on single workstations and servers with local file backup, image DR, open file backup, integrated virus protection and online data protection.  As first and only backup application, NovaBACKUP allows users to select independent NovaStor certified storage providers for online backup directly from the NovaBACKUP interface. The new update turns NovaBACKUP into a backup application that enables the central management of several online storage services from one single interface.  NovaBACKUP provides a simple process to backup, copy or mirror data to different online storage providers from a central application.

High Speed and Security for Online Data Backup

With the new update NovaBACKUP protects user data with an end-to-end AES encryption from attacks during online transmission to NovaStor’s online storage partners.  By encrypting and compressing data before it is transferred and keeping passwords safely on the users’ platform, NovaBACKUP does not allow potential intruders to decrypt backup data during transmission or at the offsite storage location.  Online backup to integrated online storage providers also profits from high speed transmission using FastBIT technology.

With speed being (after security) the second crucial quality for a smooth online backup, NovaStor has increased backup and restore speed by another 30%.  Users can also limit the bandwidth and CPU load they wish to dedicate to backing up data online. An improved scheduler allows scheduling jobs to the minute and a full overview over backup files and versions enables a point-in-time restore as required.

“The most recent update for NovaBACKUP sustains our claim for pioneering change in data protection” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “With the present update NovaBACKUP 10 has become a central management tool for all storage needs in today’s small and medium sized business. The software turns both local and online data protection into a smooth experience, even for users with little prior IT knowledge.”


The Update is available for download in the download section on NovaStor’s website.
