With NovaBACKUP data can be directly backed up to cloud storage providers
in the US, UK and Germany.
Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, April 17, 2013 – NovaBACKUP, the PC and server backup product line from data protection specialist NovaStor, combines seamless access to local backup devices as well as cloud storage in a single product. NovaStor works closely with providers in the USA, the UK and Germany to provide users with professional online storage using local partners. Those in the US who are interested in backing up data using a local online storage provider may now easily do so using NovaStor’s professional cloud backup partner FirstBackup.
Users have their choice of cloud storage
Contrary to data backup vendors who run their own data center, NovaStor integrates independent online storage providers in NovaBACKUP. Customers may choose from Amazon S3, FTP or one of several professional cloud storage providers.
Cloud storage from FirstBackup for complete safety
With FirstBackup being a cloud storage provider based in the USA, customers not only have a local partner for personal support, but can also trust that they are working with a partner whose data transmission, encryption and storage technology is compliant with US data protection rules and standards.
Brent Bierstedt, President of FirstBackup: “FirstBackup’s close partnership with NovaStor has allowed us to serve an even wider range of clients with our secure cloud storage services. We enable customers the ability to follow best practices of backing up both locally and to an online location. Our state-of-the-art SAS-70 audited data centers are staffed 24 hours a day with all servers utilizing a load-balanced, redundant architecture assisting in the customer compliance with HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO 17799 and GLB.”
Easy initialization of cloud storage in NovaBACKUP
Through a few simple clicks, wizards guide users through the entire backup and restore process, as well as through the steps for registration of an online storage account. The first 2 GB are free when using any of NovaStor’s integrated cloud storage partners, with upgrade options for additional storage. The account becomes available immediately for the convenient backup of critical data.
Stefan Utzinger, CEO of NovaStor: “Cloud services provide flexibility and savings. Still, many companies have reservations about sending their data to an anonymous, multi-national corporation. NovaStor’s cooperation with FirstBackup provides these customers with a comfortable alternative that makes online backup effortless while ensuring transparency in terms of where your data lives.”
