(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Novosoft, an international software development and IT-consulting company, announced that they will soon be offering a new option of initial backup seeding, as a part of their Online Backup service. The seeding process will be based on sending an initial copy of HDD data to Novosoft’s storage center, and then using Online Backup to safeguard subsequent changes.
“Transferring a full drive backup to an online server can take several days or even weeks to get completed, and our users frequently ask if it can be made in a more convenient form.” said Nataly Sigaeva, head of Novosoft marketing department. “The new feature of initial backup seeding will completely change the experience of offsite backups. Instead of copying so much data over the Internet, our customers will be able to create a local snapshot of their drives, physically send it to our storage, and then enjoy the power and simplicity of online incremental backups provided by our service.”
The new service will offer two different scenarios for seeding backups. Existing users of Handy Backup and Novosoft Remote Backup Service will be able to simply send their backup drives to the company’s storage center, by any postal service. New customers will be shipped a special hard drive containing all the necessary instructions and the related software.
“We are close to final agreements with our partners in North America, and actively discussing opportunities with hosting providers in Europe and other parts of the world. These new partnership activities look very promising, and we believe that the result will be greatly appreciated by all of our users.”
“The service is due to launch in spring 2013,” added Ms. Sigaeva.
