NovaBackup 14

NovaStor has released version 14 of its NovaBackup software solution, adding advanced disaster recovery, virtual machine and remote management features as well as core technology updates to enhance reliability.

The disaster recovery functionality has been enhanced for flexibility and scalability, and disaster recovery images can now be restored onto partitions of any size, enabling less complicated VM migrations as well as more efficient usage of storage. In addition, Hyper-V virtual machines in a cluster configuration and Cluster Shared Volume environments are now fully protected. Version 14 has been certified for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 to ensure full compatibility.
