NovaStor Provides Free Offsite Storage to California Fire Victims

(PresseBox) (Simi Valley / USA, ) In response to the current state of emergency, NovaStor, a leading provider of software solutions for data availability and protection, has announced that effective immediately, it will be offering small businesses and residents of Southern California free offsite storage for their critical electronic data. Storage will be offered free of charge for the duration of the fire season for all types of files including photos, business documents, financial information and music.

Ask anyone what they would do in the event of a fire and you will most likely hear that protecting photo albums is almost always the top priority. With the growing popularity of digital cameras, most photographs today are being stored locally on the disk drives of a family's home PC. If this PC becomes damaged, these memories and any other information stored with it will be lost forever.

This doesn't need to be the case. Unfortunately, it takes an experience such as this to drive home the importance of having a disaster recovery plan in place. Being prepared is not as difficult as most people would believe and placing a small investment of time in advance will pay back exponentially in situations like this. Today, offsite storage is fast, simple and reliable. It empowers the end user with the flexibility to gain access to their information from anywhere at any time.

"NovaStor's US office is situated in Ventura County, so fortunately we've managed to avoid being affected so far this year. Last year the fires were in our back yard, so we can fully sympathize with what the people of Southern California are experiencing," says Mike Andrews, Managing Director and Executive VP Sales Worldwide at NovaStor. "Our hearts go out to anyone being affected by this disaster and through this service, we hope to alleviate at least one worry that people may be experiencing."
