European distributor Douglas Stewart EDU enables institutions in the education and non-profit sector to protect valuable data with NovaStor’s award-winning software for workstations, servers, networks and data centers.

Hamburg / Germany, Zug /Switzerland, June, 22 2011 – Douglas Stewart EDU, a specialist technology distributor for the European education and non-profit market, has added software products by data protection specialist, NovaStor, to their portfolio. NovaStor’s software allows education organizations, their students, researchers and teachers to focus on their core tasks while ensuring the availability of important data. Cloud-enabled solutions can either be provided as licenses for individuals, or as a managed service for a complete institution.

NovaStor’s Products Restore Lost Data
NovaStor’s software for workstations, servers and networks of all sizes are easily installed. Products for individuals and smaller organizations offer a clear user interface to guide users step-by-step through the automation of data protection on local storage devices like USB media and on cloud storage like Amazon S3 or a private cloud offering by an institution. Should data or a complete system be lost, the users can restore the lost data or the system using NovaStor’s restore wizards.

Private Cloud Backup adds Value to Education Programs
If an organization chooses to provide data backup and restore as a managed service, users can let the central administration take charge of their complete data protection. Private cloud backup services with central management can significantly increase the value of any education program as students can focus on their education instead of busying themselves with the administration of their computers.

NovaStor Protects Heterogeneous Networks of all Sizes
NovaStor’s products include solutions for the protection of larger networks and data centers. NovaBACKUP Network and NovaBACKUP DataCenter support heterogeneous IT-environments and give administrators the freedom of choosing and exchanging storage devices as they like. NovaBACKUP DataCenter is tailored to protect huge and massively growing data loads. The software requires very little administration and its stable, fault tolerant architecture hardly requires any interference. High speed and efficient use of resources help reduce storage costs and keep the load on the infrastructure as low as possible.

Douglas Stewart EDU Selects Leading Backup Products for Education Market
NovaStor’s software in Douglas Stewart EDU’s product range protects data on Windows workstations, servers and networks with Windows, Linux and other operating systems. Beyond single workstation and server protection, NovaStor’s product range adds a wide array of cloud backup and management features for distributed installations. NovaBACKUP for Windows workstations, servers and virtual systems combines local and online file backup with imaging technology and includes additional features such as compression, virus protection, and open file backup. NovaStor’s network and data center solutions support any data protection strategy in medium-sized and large networks and even enable long-term data retention in compliance with legal requirements.

NovaStor’s software consistently receives international recognition from independent experts for its ease-of-use, rich feature set, and excellent price-performance ratio. Recent awards include Consumers Digest Best Buy for 2011 and the Top Ten Reviews Gold Award for Windows Server Backup.

“The education sector requires easy-to-use, reliable solutions at a reasonable price. Among data protection products NovaStor’s product range for small and medium environments as well as cloud services of any size is the one that best fulfils these requirements”, says Lori Mercier, Managing Director at Douglas Stewart EDU.

Our products require little time and financial investment to make sure, once digitalized, no original thought will be lost for good,” says Stefan Utzinger, CEO at NovaStor.
