Online backup speed increased by 80%, local cache reduced by 99%

Agoura Hills, CA, USA & Hamburg, Germany & Zug, Switzerland, July 16, 2010 — / — NovaStor, a pioneer in data protection, announced today that they will preview the next release of their backup solution for service providers, NovaBACKUP xSP, at HostingCon 2010 in Austin, Texas, July 19th-21st. The next version will provide significantly better performance in key areas including online backup speed and local cache size.

For the past several months, NovaStor’s in-house engineering and development teams have been working to improve the file differencing technology that allows NovaBACKUP xSP to perform incremental backups. The end result was a more sophisticated method of file differencing, which ultimately improved backup speeds by an average of 80% and reduced local cache sizes by an average of 99%.

Slow backup and restore speeds over the WAN and large local cache files are often two of the most serious software problems for companies who provide backup as a service. Many backup software solutions work fine when dealing with small amounts of data, but as the amount of customer data grows, the software is not able to scale. If the backup software is not scalable, then performance decreases as the amount of data grows. This puts end user business continuity at risk in the event of data loss, as slow performance causes downtime to increase.

“We’re excited to be able to offer such drastic improvements in our software to our service provider partners. We know that data transfer times and cache sizes are two common issues that backup service providers deal with as a result of data growth, so improving the way our software handles both of these was a clear way to make our partners lives easier, “ says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor.

Companies interested in previewing the newest version of NovaBACKUP xSP at HostingCon in Austin, Texas, July 19th-21st can request a meeting at this address:
