Plan to integrate NovaBACKUP data protection software with entire portfolio of Buffalo’s NAS offerings
Buffalo Technology has entered into a strategic partnership with data protection and backup software manufacturer NovaStor, under which the companies will integrate NovaBACKUP data protection software with the entire portfolio of Buffalo’s network attached storage offerings.
Combined with the LinkStation and TeraStation product families, the software suite of NovaBACKUP will deliver a backup offering for business and home. The TeraStation family of NAS offerings will feature multiple licenses of NovaBACKUP Business Essentials software, Buffalo Technology said.
According to Buffalo, the NovaBACKUP Business Essentials’ features include backup support for Microsoft Windows Server operating systems, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server backup agents and Open File Manager Agent and Bare Metal Restore, for easy business continuity offerings.
In addition, the LinkStation family of consumer NAS offerings will be bundled with various licenses of NovaBACKUP Professional, a backup offering that automatically backs up personal documents along with favourite photos, music and important email files safely and securely. Plus, with advanced features such as bare metal restore (BMR) and system imaging, a complete system restoration can be completed, the company said.
Ralph Spagnola, vice president of sales at Buffalo Technology, said: “Data protection is extremely important and providing first-class, cost effective backup solutions has always been a top priority for Buffalo.
“This strategic partnership with NovaStor not only strengthens our product portfolio, but it strengthens our commitment to delivering useful, all-in-one solutions that exceed our customers’ expectations.”
