Disk Shortage Heightens Backup Relevance

Backup software keeps data available when hardware fails.

Hamburg/Germany, Zug/Switzerland, (PresseBox) - Due to the Thailand flood disaster and challenges like the present strike at Hitachi GST companies and private users suffer from hard disk shortage and increasing prices. According to an IDC announcement on December 13, PC supply is the most impacted. Data protection specialist NovaStor recommends to users who need to postpone the acquisition of new hardware: Make certain professional backup is in place in the event older hardware fails.

Professional Backup Ensures Hardware-Independence
The older hardware, the more instable it is. Users who rely on older hardware and try to bridge the time until the hard disk shortage has ebbed, should employ a professional backup software. Protecting data not only on local storage but transferring important files also to the cloud and creating a disaster recovery image for complete system failure are crucial to data availability.

NovaBACKUP for workstations, servers and virtual machines combines core features at a single easy-to-use interface that guides users step-by-step through all processes. Licenses start at 49,95 USD and come with full functionality including data backup, copy and mirror to any popular storage device such as tape and optical media whether onsite or offsite. Imaging functionality ensures complete systems can be restored on new hardware quickly and easily.

“Backing up data does not prevent hardware failure, but it provides you with an insurance to return to business as usual. The present crisis is said to affect SoHo and micro business segments most, who profit from finding full-fledged and affordable data protection with NovaStor’s SMB product line”, Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor.
