Zug / Switzerland, Hamburg / Germany, Agoura Hills / USA, May 17, 2010 – NovaStor, a leading provider of backup software, announced today that Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking and network and direct attached storage solutions, has decided to bundle NovaBACKUP data protection software with their entire portfolio of network attached storage solutions.

To provide a more complete solution for their consumer and business customers, Buffalo sought to bundle their hardware with a leading data protection software program.

“When customers purchase a NAS solution from Buffalo and get a program like NovaBACKUP, they are truly getting a complete data storage and protection solution,” said NovaStor Managing Director Mike Andrews. “It’s a great strategic partnership because everyone wins.”
