NovaBACKUP will provide full local and online backup capabilities to Buffalo’s storage solutions.
Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage, wireless networking and memory solutions, today announces its plans of integrating NovaStor’s data protection software with their entire portfolio of network attached storage solutions. Buffalo LinkStation™ and TeraStation™ will soon be rolling out with the bundled NovaBACKUP data protection software, which combines full local and online backup capabilities.
Buffalo Technology selected NovaBACKUP for improving the convenience of storing, protecting data and business continuity of Buffalo’s workstations and servers. According to the storage vendor, data protection is extremely important and often overlooked. The company’s goal is to provide valued customers with first-class, cost effective backup solutions.
“Data loss can be very costly,” said Jasem Al Roomi, Director at Buffalo Advantec FZCO. “Its financial impact can not only affect the productivity of a company and cost of re-creating data, it may even involve legal actions which is why data protection has always been very important for us. We stand for our commitment to provide our customers with the best storage solutions, and our partnership with NovaStor helps us deliver just that.”
“When home or business customers purchase a NAS solution from Buffalo and get a program like NovaBACKUP Professional or NovaBACKUP Business Essentials, they are truly getting a complete data storage and protection solution,” said NovaStor managing director Mike Andrews. “It’s a great strategic partnership because everyone wins.”
Beginning July, 2010, each LinkStation™ and TeraStation™ network storage and iSCSI solution will ship bundled with the award winning NovaBACKUP® data protection software, delivering a comprehensive backup solution for both business and home users.
Buffalo’s LinkStation™ family of consumer NAS solutions will be bundled with 5 licenses of NovaBACKUP Professional. The software is an easy-to-use backup solution that automatically backs up personal documents along with photos, music and important email files safely and securely. With advanced features such as Bare Metal Restore (BMR) and system imaging, the new LinkStations™ can complete system restoration, simply and quickly.
The Buffalo TeraStation™ family of business class NAS solutions will feature 10 licenses of NovaBACKUP Business Essentials software. The new software provides a complete, all-in-one data protection solution for small and medium businesses serious about protecting digital assets. Features include backup support for Microsoft® Windows Server® operating systems, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server® backup agents as well as Open File Manager Agent and Bare Metal Restore, for easy business continuity solutions.
All Buffalo LinkStation™ and TeraStation™ products purchased from 21st June, 2010, and after, are eligible for a free upgrade if the purchased device did not contain NovaBACKUP. All LinkStation™ and TeraStation™ products purchased prior to the 21st June 2010 will also be offered a competitive upgrade to relevant NovaBACKUP product.
