The need for data backup in small and middlesized companies is constantly growing with the continued transformation to an information society. Many executives and business owners wish for a professionell, business-wide and fuly automatic data backup solution with a simple and central administration interface. So on the one hand there is a wish for features from complex so called "Enterprise solutions", on the other hand the data backup program should be as simple and inexpensive as possible. Up to now whishes were a contradiction.
Ocster, one of the leading companies for data backup solutions, focused on that contradiction and with Ocster Backup Business they released a data backup software that is specifically designed for the needs and requirements of small and middlesized companies. Speaking on the occasion Jan-Eric Duden, CEO of Ocster, says, “Ocster ensures the happiness of its customers by providing them with solutions that simplify their business processes and align with their objectives. With the features versioning and remote monitoring we reached this goal. Our focus on small businesses allows us to design all aspects of the product specifically for their needs."
Ocster Backup Business requires no technical knowledge at all. PC-Welt, one of the leading german computer magazines, wrote in a comprehensive online article: "We were able to start working with Ocster Backup Business right away. The software is very easy and intuitive.". In addition, a great new feature allows backup plans from multiple computers to be monitored from a single PC (Remote Monitoring). With this the administrator or owner of the company can review all the backups with only a handful of clicks and be certain that all the computers in the office are safely backed up.
Apart from backing up files and folders, the software also features built-in support for backing up emails and calendars from Microsoft Outlook (Outlook Backup). It also continuously monitors the system and automatically pauses when it detects that another application requires the full power of the computer (Automatic Pausing). Thus it will never disturbs the user during his work.
In addition to these important functions Ocster Backup Business also includes a feature called "versioning". Versioning means that the software keeps multiple old versions of the user's files and allows access to them at any time. A big percentage of data losses are accidental file modifications or deletions. This feature makes it easy to recover your data if you make a mistake and is thus very useful and important.
Ocster Backup Business supports local backup (on an external hard disk, network server, usb stick) as well as off-site backup storage by transferring the encryted data through secured internet data conection to professional highly secured data centers (online backup with Ocster Secure Storage). There multiple copies of the encryted data will be stored in different geographical locations. This ensures the best possible safety for the backed up data and also allows the user to access the data at any time.
Ocster Backup Business (Ocster.com) supports Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (the 64 Bit version of each operating system is also supported) and requires 512 MB RAM and 125 MB free space on the hard disk. The software is available on ocster for 49.90 USD (single licence - volume discounts are available). A 30 day trial version is also available.
