Safe Investment in Flexible Software
NovaStor keeps companies current. Support of standard technologies like VMware ESX(i) / vSphere 5.0 and Microsoft SQL 2012 enables companies to back up new versions with existing backup software.  Beyond system support, NovaStor has reduced backup windows for virtual machines with a speed acceleration of up to ten times.  Also being introduced is an enhanced backup of critical data to NAS devices which makes it easier to be compliant with corporate security policies.  All licenses can be used to back up any supported system and business-critical data without additional costs or adding options.

“Small and medium-sized companies require data protection that fits seamlessly and with little distraction to daily business.  In order not to disturb daily routines NovaStor’s licensing does not require any follow-up licensing for backing up a new technology or a new database.  Version 12.5 allows companies to utilize their existing infrastructure and to integrate future acquisitions seamlessly into the backup strategy“, says Stefan Utzinger, CEO von NovaStor.
