  • (1888PressRelease) December 09, 2010 - Alliance, Ohio - Novosoft LLC, an international software development and IT-consulting company, today announced the release of Handy Backup 6.9, the software for workstation and server backup ( ). The backup program provides advanced database and online backup and integration with disaster recovery.

    "It's been a while since we could start observing a remarkable trend: the number of companies using servers for their business grows drastically faster than the number of companies properly backing up their servers. Check the latest Symantec Disaster Recovery Study, there is an astonishing fact: about 60% of corporate servers are not currently covered by disaster recovery plans any way at all! Handy Backup Server 6.9 is the sum of our knowledge and experience we want to make things change with," said Alexander Prichalov, head of the Novosoft Development Department.

    "One of the reasons causing the trend is the complexity of server backup ( ). Companies regard it as something way far complicated and cut their backup budgets down, as they wish to save money and time. Considering that observation, we critically reexamined the functionality of Handy Backup Server. The new version was constructed on the basis of the concept of advanced backup features sharing the maximal ease of handling," remarked Mr. Prichalov.

    Handy Backup Server 6.9 features:
    - Client-server scheme for control of corporate data backup from a central server, with minimal system resources consumption and invisibly for users of remote workstations (in the Windows service mode);
    - Synchronization of network computers between one another and with FTP/SFTP servers;
    - Automated backup with flexible time- and event-oriented settings;
    - Data recovery on any workstation by a command from a central server.

    All backup tasks are generated on and controlled from a central server requiring no assistance of a PC user whose data are backed up.

    The new version presents optimized algorithms for backup of database (MS SQL, Oracle, FoxPro, MS Access, and others). As soon as the backup schedule and type (full, incremental, or differential) are specified, databases and all the corresponding components (forms, indices, procedures, triggers, etc.) are automatically sought for and copied, even if the user performing backup does not have administrator access rights for the databases.

    Handy Backup Server 6.9 provides refined integration with online backup service. The preliminary creation of an online service account is no longer required for getting an opportunity to use online backup options. Remote data backup can now be performed from the Handy Backup Server interface. When an online backup task is launched this way, a 10-day trial online service account is automatically created. The account provides means of seeing detailed backup statistics (capacity, date, time, etc.) and managing the backed up data via online interface.

    Handy Backup Server 6.9 is integrated with Handy Backup Disaster Recovery. Earlier this year Novosoft released Handy Backup Disaster Recovery as a standalone product sharing the concepts and architecture of the original Handy Backup. The program features creation of USB and Flash recovery drives to load operation system from (regardless of what the main operation system is). The software has the options both of making a disk image of the entire HDD and backing up and restoring any of the hard drive partitions. The functionality of Disaster Recovery got integrated into Handy Backup Server 6.9 with several notable improvements (particularly, the speed of transferring data to a USB stick was significantly improved).
