The flexibility of our U.S. based engineering team to rapidly respond to change is something that competitors have had a difficult time trying to duplicate.”

With all server-class products including free remote “Setup Assistance”, new NovaBACKUP customers get initial backup jobs running and achieve data protection from day one.
