NovaStor’s campaign to provide “Backup for the Rest of Us” places a high priority on supporting the latest Operating Systems and Hypervisors.

We pride ourselves on supporting the latest technologies and cannot allow misleading information to place our customer loyalty into question.

Exactly two weeks have passed since NovaStor’s announcement releasing NovaBACKUP version 15. This release, dated earlier than Veeam’s latest v7 update announcement, already included support for vSphere 5.5 and Microsoft Server 2012 R2. Veeam’s recent announcement that they were first to market is just not accurate and has had a negative impact on the momentum at NovaStor at the height of their most successful product release in history.

“NovaStor was forced to correct this announcement in response to the flurry of calls into our support group questioning the validity of our product’s system requirements page,” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “We pride ourselves on supporting the latest technologies and cannot allow misleading information to place our customer loyalty into question. It is also not fair to risk having the hard work, achievements and dedication of our product and engineering teams go unrecognized.”

NovaStor continues to be a major innovator in the world of data protection, bringing support for the latest technologies to market almost immediately to meet customer demand.
