Novosoft Advances Into the Market of Enterprise-Level Backup Software

January 21, 2009

Novosoft, an international IT-consulting and software development company, announced the release of a new version of Handy Backup - data backup and disaster recovery utility targeted for enterprises exploiting IBM's DB2 data servers.

Alliance, Ohio, January 21, 2009 - Novosoft, one of the leading providers of backup solutions worldwide, recently released a new version of Handy Backup with support for backing up and restoring DB2 databases. Now companies that use IBM technologies can take advantage of Handy Backup to protect data of their e-commerce, CRM and other DB2-based applications from loss or damage.

"It's been years since our company has become IBM Premier Partner, and we are happy to have our relationship further strengthened with the new product," said Alexander Prichalov, head of Novosoft product department. "Handy Backup is a shining example of how investments in knowledge can make a program grow to one of the most popular solutions in its market. We hope that enterprises that choose IBM DB2 data servers will find Handy Backup greatly useful and beneficial for their businesses."

The first steps into the market of enterprise backup software have been taken by Novosoft roughly two years ago when the company released three plug-ins for Handy Backup that allowed safeguarding data of ODBC-compatible databases, Lotus Notes/Domino and Microsoft Exchange Server. In May, 2007 the company's product line has been enhanced by the introduction of Handy Backup Server which also allowed backing up networked workstations on a client-server scheme.

"What distinguishes us from our competitors is that we offer a reliable solution priced lower than all similar products," said Mr. Prichalov. "This is achieved due to a unique plug-in-based architecture used in Handy Backup, which allows every user receive a utility tailored for his own needs - without paying for functions that he never uses."
