The new NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1 reduces administrative burden for enterprise-wide data protection and increases data availability for VMware virtual environments

Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, August 15, 2013 – With the new NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1, data protection specialist NovaStor reduces the effort required to backup any number of servers and increases data availability for VMware virtual machines. Version 5.1 also offers support for Microsoft Exchange 2013 as well as SQL and Hyper-V cluster support. NovaBACKUP DataCenter is available directly from NovaStor as well as through NovaStor Enterprise partners.

Backup Deployment: Protect hundreds of servers in a single step
The new one-stop backup deployment in NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1 enables administrators to distribute a backup job to an unlimited number of servers through a single administrative action. Modifying the job is equally easy, with changes seamlessly transmitted to all machines under the job. This functionality significantly reduces both work load and the probability of user error, for the protection of multiple servers on the network.

Increased VMware data availability through replication
NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1 allows replication of VMware virtual machines to another ESX or vCenter server. When replicating, any changes to the original are transmitted to the copy at an easily definable time interval. The replication of virtual machines reduces downtime to a matter of minutes. Once a virtual machine fails, the replicated machine can be started. By creating an additional replication of the machine – full security and redundancy is restored.

Microsoft Exchange & SQL 2013 and Hyper-V Cluster Support
NovaStor is continuously developing its backup software to support the use of the most current backup strategies and technologies. Version 5.1 supports Microsoft Exchange 2013 backup and restore. In addition, NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1 simplifies the management of backup jobs for SQL and Hyper-V clusters with a consolidated management view. A single visual reference for the cluster eliminates the need to view and manage each cluster component individually. Further optimizations facilitate the reporting and monitoring of enterprise-wide backups.

Stefan Utzinger, CEO at NovaStor: “One-stop backup deployment is a function that while often in asked for – has been largely neglected by competitive products. With new backup deployment functionality, NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.1 allows SMEs to concentrate on their core competencies, while NovaStor’s backup software ensures the reliable protection of their data availability.”
