NovaBACKUP® 13 Central Management Console
Manage multiple installations of NovaBACKUP®
Introducing the Central Management Console
NovaStor introduces the new Central Management
Console. The Management Console features a modern, easy to use, web
browser-based user interface which is designed to manage multiple
installations of widely distributed NovaBACKUP clients (including NovaBACKUP
Professional software) in a LAN or through the internet.
The remote management of NovaBACKUP clients
is essentially working the same way as it is done using the NovaBACKUP user
interface. A Dashboard provides the most important figures to get an
immediate status of all connected NovaBACKUP installations and wizards help
to create, delete, modify, and schedule backup-jobs. It’s possible to “drill
down” into the file system of a single NovaBACKUP to select specific files
and folders as well as selecting SQL, Exchange and VMware Virtual machines.
Backup policies can be applied to a single NovaBACKUP client, or a group of
them. This way it’s very easy to deploy policies to any number of NovaBACKUP
clients. This is very useful if whole companies are managed which requires
the same individual policies Reports like the total amount of failed backups
or how many backup failures have occurred over a period of time for a
specific NovaBACKUP client or group of NovaBACKUP’s is available. Log files
generated on each of the connected NovaBACKUP’s can be fully viewed.

A home user runs several computers in
his house hold. Each of the parents and all 3 kids have their own
computer which are spread all over the house. Utilizing the CMC the
father, for example, could remotely manage and monitor the backups using
a standard internet browser. Even if the computers are in use or he is
in the office while one of the kids need help to restore a particular
file, the father can easily restore the file.
An IT manager has several
client/customers for whom he is managing IT departments and backups.
With NovaBACKUP and CMC, he could establish automated local and off-site
backup utilizing the Central Management Console. Since the Management
Console is a web-based application he can centrally manage and monitor
all customer installations wherever he has internet access, using a
standard internet browser.
A managed service provider offers Backup
as a Service to their customers. He takes care for the initial
installation and setup of the NovaBACKUP client software at his
customer’s side. Utilizing the CMC he is monitoring if all clients at
customers side are working correctly. This way he knows immediately when
a backup fails or one of the clients didn’t backup since a defined
period of time. If necessary he can remotely setup or modify backup jobs
and is also able to run a restore of lost files.
A Software house is selling their
specialized software for example to doctors, hospitals, lawyers etc.
They are offering their software with a full service contract. This
includes setup, training, support, upgrades and maintaining of the
software. In order to make sure that the systems where the software is
running don’t lose data and provide a fast recovery in case of a
disaster the software house combines or integrate NovaBACKUP. This way
they make sure that the systems and the application data is constantly
being protected. The CMC helps the software house to manage and monitor
the backup on a remote base.

Windows servers or workstations. It is recommended that you have either
a static IP-address or a DNS name associated with the computer that will
be hosting the Central Management as the NovaBACKUP agent installations
