(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – NovaStor®, international provider of backup and restore software, announces a major update to its enterprise class network solution NovaBACKUP DataCenter™. With the release of NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.2, NovaStor offers customers an unprecedented level of flexibility and freedom with a single software application to secure both physical and virtual IT environments.
While NovaBACKUP DataCenter has always protected entire virtual machines, an expanded feature set awards a new level of convenience to the discerning network administrator. New capabilities, such as Granular Item Recovery (GIR) for VMware, provides backup and restore of individual files to & from VMware virtual machines. VMWare optimized Media Pools enable clients to select specific items from VM backups and dictate their restore location of choice – in a single step.
NovaStor prides itself on a rapid response to the newest Operating Systems and Business Applications. Users conveniently deploy new servers using the latest Microsoft operating system, Windows Server 2012 R2 with support for vSphere 5.5, beating competitors like Veeam to the punch. The comprehensive backup and restore of critical business applications such as Microsoft SQL 2014 and Exchange 2013 is included as standard functionality, providing welcome relief to businesses that have grown tired of solutions that attempt to upsell customers with separate plug-in’s and features.
NovaBACKUP DataCenter reduces the complexity of enterprise-wide data backup and restore. NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.2 further strengthens centralized backup management for all physical and virtual machines (Windows, Linux, VMware and Hyper-V) with the capability of network-wide updates. Administrators simply select which systems should be modified and launch updates at-will, saving valuable time. Other steps have been taken to further simplify administrative tasks; for example, users can expect an impressive degree of automation for Data Availability Groups (DAG) in Microsoft Exchange, for database-level recovery from failures.
Stefan Utzinger, CEO at NovaStor: “NovaStor ensures that all of our business clients technologies are supported for reliable backup and restore. We have developed in NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.2, a network backup solution that stands at the forefront of technology. Beyond software… for us, it’s personal. Our clients work one-on-one with NovaStor backup engineers, and a support team that is familiar with their installation and thus able to provide fast and accurate backup solutions. ”
NovaBACKUP DataCenter 5.2 is a robust application, with a thoroughly documented high grade of stability, benefiting from a fault-tolerant architecture that undergoes improvement with every revision. A single pane of glass designed for the backup of heterogeneous networks, and a hardware agnostic design that gives administrators free reign over their technology decisions.
