NovaBACKUP enables companies to backup large data loads in minimum time.

Agoura Hills, CA, December 07, 2012 -- Data protection specialist NovaStor takes backup speed to the next level. In real-world comparisons of common backup configurations, NovaBACKUP beats Symantec Backup Exec as well as Acronis Backup and Recovery by completing tasks in less than half the time.

NovaBACKUP Achieves Top Backup Speeds in a Live Environment
NovaBACKUP 14.0 employs a new backup engine and intelligent compression algorithms to ensure short backup windows. To confirm the speed advantage, NovaBACKUP Business Essentials was tested under identical conditions as Acronis Backup & Recovery and Symantec Backup Exec.

Tests were conducted on a system with 16 GB RAM and an Intel Core CPU. Default settings like Volume Shadow Services were enabled; compression and verification activated. To reflect typical business processes, data was backed up to a USB drive as the target backup device

In a Windows 2008 R2 Server environment NovaBACKUP’s performance demonstrated a superior data transfer rate. Where Acronis Backup & Recovery required 28 minutes and Symantec Backup Exec 2012 needed 26 minutes, NovaBACKUP Business Essentials completed the backup of 123 GB to a USB 3.0 HD in only 12 minutes.

Short Backup Windows Increase Productivity and Data Security
Protecting digital assets is an essential part of a network administrator’s responsibility in today’s corporate environment. Even with continuously growing data loads the task must be fulfilled outside of regular office hours so as not to disturb daily operations. If this is not possible, system load caused by backup processes should be reduced to a minimum.
An enhanced backup speed is therefore crucial to a smooth user experience. By creating the least impact upon resources, data protection processes function nearly unnoticeable to the average user.
