Data protection specialist NovaStor has updated its NovaBACKUP software that protects workstations, servers, and virtual machines running under Hyper-V and VMware. NovaBACKUP’s feature set makes it easy for users to back up and restore complete systems and individual files. Among the new benefits introduced with NovaBACKUP 13 are universal restore, access to individual files and folders within an image, and options that broaden backup flexibility to meet individual needs.

NovaBACKUP 13 simplifies restoration of critical data at a moment’s notice. With the addition of a universal restore function, users can seamlessly restore a complete system to dissimilar hardware. Users of the new version benefit from a boot environment based on original Microsoft technology, Windows PE, for the restoration of a system. Instead of using supplied boot images-based technologies that may not always be current, NovaBACKUP 13 users start the restore of a complete system using the Win PE, a platform that is continuously updated by Microsoft for the use of current hardware.

Backup and Restore According to Personal Requirements

Version 13 provides full, incremental, and differential backup for file storage and imaging. After a full backup, incremental file backups or images help users quickly and efficiently update their backup data, keeping information current while conserving resources.

Additionally, new imaging functionality creates visibility into the image file structure. Individual files and folders are easy to locate and recover. Users receive greater benefit from the ability to adapt their backup solution to match specific system properties and to ensure, for example; the reliable backup and restore of encrypted hard drives. NovaBACKUP 13 provides comprehensive imaging features for the development of customized backup strategies.

All NovaBACKUP 13 installations on workstations, servers, and virtual environments include support of NovaStor’s technology for central monitoring and management with the central management console. Administrators are able to conveniently access the central management console while on-the-go or from remote locations via the internet.

NovaBACKUP 13 is available from NovaStor and its certified partners worldwide. Users may choose from three products for typical use cases. NovaBACKUP Professional (49.95) for workstation backup and restore, NovaBACKUP Server (249.95) for server backup and restore, and NovaBACKUP Business Essentials (299.95) for server backup and restore including Microsoft SQL and Exchange support as well as Hyper-V support and agentless backup for virtual VMware machines.
