NovaStor Releases NovaBACKUP 16 and Introduces Partnership With Kroll Ontrack to Equip Small Businesses with Enterprise Quality industry leading Granular (single mailbox) Search and Restore for Exchange
NovaStor® adds significant value to NovaBACKUP Business Essentials by selecting Ontrack® PowerControls™ for its power and effectiveness in managing Microsoft® Exchange Server data easily and efficiently
Agoura Hills– May 20, 2014 – NovaStor, an international provider of backup and restore solutions for physical and virtual machines and Kroll Ontrack, a leading provider of data recovery and ediscovery products and services, today announced they have teamed up to provide small businesses with restore functionality for single Exchange mailboxes. By leveraging the granular search and data restoration capabilities of Ontrack PowerControls, IT resellers or IT managers can significantly reduce the time associated with email search and restoration, as well as Microsoft® Exchange Server consolidation and migration.
“Partnering with Kroll Ontrack to deliver single mailbox restore capabilities to our customers as part of our NovaBACKUP Business Essentials represents as an important puzzle piece with regards to NovaStor taking a dominant small business market position,” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “Ontrack PowerControls is a world-renowned, industry best, proven solution and NovaBACKUP Business Essentials combines this technology with several other advanced physical and virtual server capabilities for only $599.95. Popular competitive solutions from Veeam and Symantec cannot compete at this level.”
With email communication being the backbone of small and medium sized businesses, this critical business data affects virtually every aspect of their productivity. For most, this means utilizing mailboxes stored on a Microsoft® Exchange Server. While many backup solutions take an all-or-nothing approach to restoring data, restoring entire database’s to retrieve a single email is not acceptable for most companies.
NovaBACKUP Business Essentials, utilizing Ontrack PowerControls, now brings the ability to search for and recover individual mailboxes, down to the item level within Microsoft Exchange (including Exchange 2013). The unprecedented value being offered in the NovaBACKUP Business Essentials product affects Small Businesses through improved data availability, reduced restore times, and the capacity for greater productivity.
“According to a recent Kroll Ontrack survey of 326 individuals in IT, engineering and sales, nearly half of organizations experience an annual data loss often associated with the world’s most common email application – Microsoft Exchange,” said Kroll Ontrack Vice President of Operations Todd Johnson. ”This partnership with NovaStor, who’s focus is on “Backup for the Rest of Us,” opens the door for small businesses to finally have access to such a powerful tool for addressing a common, but time-consuming problem. Specifically, Ontrack PowerControls works directly with your backups and allows you to extract and restore only the items that you need, saving IT administrators 50 percent of restoration time when compared to using traditional methods.”
With Ontrack PowerControls in their solution portfolio, corporations of any size can:
- Minimize the time needed to restore individual Exchange messages, mailboxes or entire EDB files – or SharePoint items, lists, libraries, folders and entire sites.
- Search and locate specific files faster – even across multiple data sources – then copy and export those items to the desired location.
- Eliminate the need for a recovery server. Ontrack PowerControls works directly with backups.
- Keep current production and backup processes intact. Ontrack PowerControls doesn’t require changes to current processes and runs on any Windows®-based workstation.
- Migrate efficiently to recent Exchange Server and SharePoint Server versions, eliminating the need to have new and old servers coexist simultaneously.
