NovaStor Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Remote Backup for the Distributed Enterprise Made Simple with NovaBACKUP® Remote Workforce

What if you could get all your data into a well-organized repository by installing software that automates it all for you? What if the process took just a few hours and not the thousands of man-hours you thought it’d take to complete the task? What if all this could happen continuously (even as you slept or worked on other mission-critical projects) and you wouldn’t have to worry about missing backups? NovaStor has an answer to all these questions!

NovaStor’s NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce solution is designed with people like you in mind. This private cloud solution is equipped with local and remote management features, which allow users to seamlessly perform local backups to their private cloud infrastructure, or perform offsite backups to a public cloud. Even better, users can carry out such backups while they’re away from the office, or choose to manage remote backups from once central location, as NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce permits one to manage all distributed backup jobs via a web-based browser interface.

To address the challenge of backing up distributed data, NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce comes equipped with a web-based management tool, called the Central Management Console (CMC). The CMC enables an IT administrator to handle and maintain all backup and restore processes on distributed employee laptops, PCs, and servers from one centralized location. The data can then be backed up to a single repository in the cloud or to their private cloud infrastructure via the Internet. If need be, the employee may also be given access to the management console, and if so desired, they can manage their own backups and restores.

The CMC is innovative as it allows users to share data or collaborate on backup processes and restores without moving an inch from wherever they are located. They can easily schedule automatic backups and/or continuous backups of information and then relax with confidence that the backups are successfully taking place even if they are engaged elsewhere.

NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce gives your enterprise complete control over its data. The administrator, operating from the CMC, can set up user accounts for all members of the enterprise—whether they use a PC, laptop, or are working from a remote location. Authorized and authenticated users can then back up their data over the Internet and store this data on the enterprises’ private cloud infrastructure or to an online storage repository. If need be, this stored data can also be restored to any machine via the software’s web-based browser and a WAN connection.

Even more appealing, NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce can handle huge data loads and does not need constant monitoring, thus leaving your local computing resources free to be redeployed for other business activities. Data access can be orchestrated independent of available bandwidth from anywhere in the world, and databases can be reconstructed flexibly and quickly on local machines (existing or new) using the data restore wizard provided with the software.

Version 12.2 of NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce has recently been released by NovaStor with a number of new feature add-ons.
