At CeBIT 2012 NovaStor presents the new version 4.7 of its data protection software for heterogeneous networks and data centers.
Hamburg/Germany, Zug/Switzerland, February 8, 2012 – At CeBIT 2012, 6 to 10 March 2012 in Hannover, Germany, data protection specialist NovaStor will present the new version of its platform and hardware-neutral data protection for mid-sized companies, data center operators and service providers (hall 2 / B 60). Version 4.7 offers users and system integrators maximum flexibility with full support of local and distributed cloud storage architectures. New features include server and operating system-wide process control for backup jobs and scripts, snapshot and bare-metal recovery capabilities, as well as a backup format to optimize the performance of deduplication appliances.
Individual Processes for Full Availability and Optimal Use of Resources
The complexity of today’s IT infrastructure requires a high degree of automation to keep costs and overhead low. To automate the protection of individual infrastructures, enterprises need a data backup solution that seamlessly adapts to the environment. To this end, NovaStor launches a central process control for server-and platform-wide management of backup processes with version 4.7 of its enterprise backup solution, NovaBACKUP DataCenter. This entirely new management functionality allows the definition of conditions and sequences for individual backup jobs to assure the smooth operation of company-wide business processes.
The central administration of backup infrastructure supports the dynamic placement of IT components in decentralized storage or cloud architectures. At the time of execution, NovaBACKUP DataCenter performs the intelligent backup process of the selected component, regardless of its current position – allowing for the optimal utilization of available storage.
Fault Tolerance and Efficiency through new BMR, Snapshot Support for NetApp, and more
The best backup is the one no one notices, because it runs reliably and automatically in the background. NovaStor has dedicated version 4.7 to backup optimization from multiple perspectives. A new Path Failover feature allows the free combination of servers to be backed up to assigned target destinations. Backups are easily conducted on any device, enhancing job success rates and improving data availability significantly.
A new snapshot feature for NetApp NAS contributes to the goal of backing up data utilizing minimal resources. New bare-metal recovery capabilities such as Universal Restore and P2V and V2P, provide support for fast recovery and enhance the performance of physical and virtual systems, thereby improving data availability.
NovaBACKUP DataCenter 4.7 Optimizes Deduplication
With NovaBACKUP DataCenter 4.7 NovaStor introduces a new backup format to facilitate the reduction of backup data with deduplication. The new format optimizes deduplication rates and thus enhances the performance of hardware appliances such as DataDomain. As a hardware-independent best-of-breed backup technology NovaBACKUP DataCenter 4.7 supports any deduplication solution and can be flexibly combined with different devices to create superior data-protection that is uniquely tailored to your environment.
Through continued implementation of new functionality NovaStor pursues its strategy of simplifying complex processes. NovaBACKUP DataCenter facilitates backup management and rapid data restore with transparent processes and a straightforward user experience.
“NovaBACKUP DataCenter 4.7 supports the seamless flow of business processes within an organization to reduce the strain on resources and production systems. With this new release, we are expanding our commitment to the unobtrusive integration of data backup processes into the everyday business of our customers”, said Stefan Utzinger, CEO of NovaStor.
