You can also backup to and restore from the cloud directly from the agent, giving users flexibility and easy access to their data.
Backup replication uses an image-level backup to replicate data to an offsite location or secondary drive to fail over a virtual machine or an entire system in just a few clicks. Easily perform non-disruptive recoverability testing and ensure that you have a working DR plan in place to minimize downtime, prevent data loss and achieve low Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
Disaster recovery images streamline the restore process by including all system data to bring a mirror image of your former machine back into production after any disaster scenario. Users can also virtualize locally to perform a failback restoration to the original location, instead of a failover, which is the ultimate objective for disaster recovery.
With NovaBACKUP BDR Essentials, creating a VHDx System Image (Hyper-V Virtual Hard Disk) backup to be booted as a virtual machine is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps. In the event of a disaster, users can mount a local virtual machine as a restore point on the NovaBACKUP BDR Essentials device.
After your first full backup, all consequent backups will be incremental forever, which means only the blocks that changed since the previous backup will be backed up. This strategy reduces data growth, increased the speed of the backups, and minimizes the impact to client systems.
Gain access to unlimited version history of your clients data with file versioning. Once a file is backed up, you can access and retrieve previous versions or drafts of that file or folders for your clients with ease. If a file become corrupted by a virus, you can just roll-back to an earlier version.
With synthetic one-step VM restore, your VMware or Hyper-V virtual machines can be restored in a single pass, regardless of the number of previous backups, to the same host or to an alternate location. Restore to a point-in-time or to the most recent backup. Plus, with the option to backup direct to VHDX, you can quickly restore a physical machine to a virtual machine in a Hyper-V environment in just minutes.
With granular recovery, you can quickly retrieve individual files, emails or folders from a physical or virtual machine - all with just a few clicks. You can restore files to the same or to an alternate location. You can also perform Exchange and Microsoft SQL server backups with granular restore.
Automate your clients' backups to fit their business needs. Scheduling a backup job allows them to run outside of normal business hours to minimize any disruption or slow-down of your clients' machines. You can adjust the frequency (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly), add a holiday schedule, and run any scheduled job as needed.
Utilize military grade encryption to password protect your backup files from unauthorized access. Choose from AES 128-bit, 192-bit, 256-bit, or Blowfish encryption based on the needs of your clients. File and image backups are compressed by default, saving anywhere from 10-25% of storage space.
NovaBACKUP Appliance software meets and exceeds the current HIPAA, FERPA, GLBA and other industry requirements, ensuring that your customers meet their data protection requirements for highly regulated industries, such as Healthcare, Dental, Education, Accounting and Legal.
Receive backup summary reports via email. File backups and copy jobs can be setup to send you an email when a job completes based on various parameters, such as “Always” or “Only if errors”. You can also receive Summary Reports on a schedule, to make management of multiple backup jobs easier. Quickly see an overview of all your backups, on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule.
