Turnkey Cloud Backup Service

Bandwidth and other technological limitations often slow down data availability due to slow or limited connections and transmission times. Version 12.5 of NovaStor’s cloud backup solves this problem by optimizing both the cloud storage server and the client software.

With regard to the increased use of virtual systems, virtual backup has been accelerated by up to ten times. In addition, comprehensive data base optimizations speed the processing of user input.

Support of Current Technologies such as VMware 5.0 and SQL 12
Version 12.5 provides support for recent technologies such as VMware vSphere ESXi 5.0 and Microsoft SQL 2012 in addition to older versions of Microsoft Exchange and SQL, VMware and Hyper-V. NovaStor has also extended its NAS security support facilitating compliance with internal security policies for backups on local NAS file systems.

To fulfill typical business requirements NovaStor supports the agentless backup of unlimited virtual machines on Hyper-V servers or several distributed VMware installations in the network with a single license.
