Never worry about system failure and data loss again with our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award winning software, NovaBACKUP. This Windows server backup software can back up to all media types, including virtual environments, FTP sites and online storage services. Since it provides full disk imaging you can restore not just your files but any application for complete recovery.
Windows Server 2012 is a great server operating system, but it cannot do everything, so a good backup solution like NovaBACKUP can fill in the gaps and make complex scheduling scenarios simple and hands-free. This backup software can even back up to tape drives, and it can restore remotely.
This backup software has a few technologies that other products do not offer such as virus scanning, easy version restoration, data encryption and plug-and-play mapped drive recognition. They also offer support options that no other company does such as professional installation and configuration assistance and recovery help. In addition, to make this a truly global product they offer support in English, Russian, Chinese, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
NovaStor offers a variety of backup software choices, including backup protection for PCs, laptops, virtual environments, networks, cloud-based storage, data centers and multi-site options. We looked at the NovaBACKUP server addition, which works with all Windows server editions, including both 32 and 64-bit versions.
This Windows server backup software provides nearly all the backup features we were looking for and a few more that other products do not include. NovaBACKUP provides incremental and differential backup, including open file backup and version support. It now also includes incremental imaging as well as differential imaging, which is still a good way to back up changed data and more than sufficient for most.
This software offers a few things that other products do not such as virus scanning and data encryption. NovaBACKUP performs an automatic virus scan before data is backed up, which may be particularly useful if you use an online storage service. It also employs password protection, secret keys and AES data encryption. The AES encryption protocol is the data encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government. It is the first open cipher approved by the National Security Administration and can without a doubt keep your data safe.
NovaBACKUP goes beyond what the Windows server operating system can do in terms of scheduling. This software can be scheduled to back up by the minute, hour, day or month. It can even back up every minute on the minute if you want it to. You can also configure it to back up at customized intervals or popular backup schedules such as Grandfather-Father-Son, Round Robin or the Tower of Hanoi. This software can send out email reports and event logs and can notify you if a backup fails.
This software is the king of system restore. It can even restore remotely. NovaBACKUP can restore individual and deleted files, and since it has disk imaging it can recover the contents of an entire disk, including applications. This Windows backup software also provides system restore and bare metal recovery. In fact this software offers more restore and boot options than any other product. It can create bootable CDs, DVDs, USB devices and includes PXE options. NovaSTOR also offers affordable versions for restore support for Exchange and SQL servers.
This Windows server backup software offers more device support and virtual storage options than any other software. NovaBACKUP can back up to all devices, including all hardware and virtual type environments. It can back up to removable discs such as CDs, DVDs, devices connected by USB 1.1 or 2.0, and FireWire-connected devices. Additionally, this is the only software we reviewed that will back up to online storage services, including FTP sites and Amazon Simple Storage Services. They can support over 10 online storage services depending on your region.
System recovery and potential data loss is stressful enough. Backup and recovery software should not be an additional stressor, so we looked for easy–to-use Windows server backup software. NovaBACKUP is designed for small business owners or small offices that do not necessarily employ a full-time IT person. This backup software is intended to be easy enough to use that even someone with little or no server backup experience can figure it out. We found the software exceptionally easy to use; we did not have to consult the help files even once to configure our initial installation and first backup plan. To make potentially nerve-racking situations worry-free they also offer support options for assistance via telephone to walk you through the setup and restore process.
NovaStor provides several support options. Telephone and email support are always available at your fingertips free of charge. For additional support, you can access the online forum, a searchable knowledgebase, product documentation, online training videos and webinars. For an additional fee you will receive support for Exchange Servers 2003 and 2007.
