(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning backup solutions, today announced the release ofNovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 that provides powerful and reliable features to businesses seeking a value-based solution. With enhanced support for the latest Windows and Linux operating systems, NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 delivers an enterprise platform that’s flexible and scalable to fit businesses as they continue to grow.
Offering a fast, convenient and expanded feature-set, NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 brings added value to mixed environments and reduces backup and recovery times. Improved Hyper-V cluster support allows multiple, cluster-defined virtual machines to be backed up by a single, cluster member while other Hyper-V cluster nodes continue running in parallel without being affected by the backup. The new Single Mailbox Restore functionality enables customers to recover full mailboxes and non-mail features such as Calendar, Notes and Tasks, and with just one step, users can perform and restore directly from VMware GIR Backups (Granular Item Restore). NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 also improves restore speeds with multi-streaming, by backing up data more effectively when accessing additional streams of data from different locations to complete several jobs at the same time.
“We work closely with our customers and partners to constantly improve the speed, efficiency, and benefits of our NovaBACKUP DataCenter product,” said Stefan Utzinger, CEO of NovaStor. “We have listened to their needs and built an enterprise product that makes sense for small and medium businesses. With NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3, we continue to exceed industry performance standards, while offering feature-rich functionality that helps small to medium-sized businesses increase their backup and restore success rate to nearly 100%.”
Other new NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 features now include support for SharePoint, Grandfather-father-son backup rotation scheme (GFS), and single tape drive media management. Now with SharePoint, users can back up an entire database or restore single items with one job. Using GFS, customers can quickly set up simple schemes to save time and effort by running rotations such as the Grandfather (monthly, to single tape), Father (weekly, to tape library), and for the Son (daily, to disk). And with easily customizable rotation schemes, businesses can take advantage of the single tape drive media management functionality to protect single tapes from overriding any existing data.
Existing customers and new users will also enjoy other NovaStor industry hallmarks. NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 offers a dedicated account manager with no outsourced technical support, a simple licensing model that’s cost-effective, and software that’s hardware and vendor independent – meaning businesses won’t have to worry about integration, since NovaBACKUP DataCenter supports all platforms.
“NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.3 is a product that bridges the gap in the enterprise network backup industry,” adds Utzinger. “Our product covers the typical backup and restore functionality needed by small and medium-sized businesses today, and works in both physical and virtual environments with a support team that truly cares about the success of its customers.”
