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.
