Press release from: NovaStor

NovaBACKUP data protection software protects important data in the cloud for free with Amazon S3.

Agoura Hills, CA, April 15, 2011 -- According to a recent survey released by market research firm, Storage Strategies NOW, fifty-seven percent of CIOs and storage administrators plan to adopt cloud storage in the very near future. With cloud storage becoming the standard, data protection specialist NovaStor recommends using backup software that combines backup to local devices and also offers backup to cloud storage. NovaBACKUP software supports all popular storage devices together with seamless integration of Amazon S3 to ensure full on-site and off-site data protection.

In order to protect data lost from fire, theft, or some other disaster, it is essential that data is not only backed up to an additional device, but also backed up to the cloud. In the survey conducted by Storage Strategies NOW, respondents reported that their top three cloud priorities, in order, are as follows: Email, front-office applications and finally, backup data. With data backup moving to the cloud, it is imperative that those adopting cloud storage, also pay close attention to selecting data protection software that enables professional integration of cloud storage into their data protection policies.

NovaStor’s entire line of NovaBACKUP software allows users to protect data on-site and also to the cloud. The software’s user interface includes a feature that allows users to add their desired cloud storage device, simply with a few clicks. Once a cloud storage device is added, the software will guide users how to perform full and incremental backups to the cloud. NovaBACKUP supports seamless integration of Amazon S3, thus enabling users to profit from a free online storage account that also comes with free storage capacity up to 5GB. NovaBACKUP’s much acclaimed interface also guides users through all processes of data protection and retrieval. Even untrained users can easily backup, retrieve, and recover data that has been stored in the cloud.

“We’ve always understood the importance of on-site and off-site data storage. That is why from day one, we have incorporated cloud backup options into our software,” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “NovaBACKUP makes it easy for users to choose the cloud backup service of their choice and then back up data to not just one stationary device, but also to the cloud.”

Sources
The cloud storage survey, performed by Storage Strategies NOW (SSG-NOW) and co-sponsored by the Storage Networking Industry association was answered by more than 2000 datacenter managers, IT professionals, and end users who had attended the Storage Networking World trade shows in the past three years.

Availability
NovaBACKUP is available in NovaStor’s online store as well as from authorized resellers. NovaBACKUP 12 is also available to protect single servers including Microsoft Exchange and SQL and unlimited virtual machines with a single license. NovaBACKUP Protection Packs also offer a central interface for remote management of distributed NovaBACKUP installations up to file level.
