Fasthosts Chooses NovaStor to Power its Backup Services

Leading web hosting and service provider, Fasthosts, uses NovaBACKUP xSP to offer backup as a service to its growing customer base.
(PresseBox) (Hamburg / Germany, Zug / Switzerland, ) Fasthosts, a leading UK web hosting service provider, chooses NovaBACKUP xSP from data protection specialist NovaStor to offer backup-as-a-service to its 400,000 plus customers. As a leading provider of hosted IT solutions, Fasthosts chose NovaStor for its ease of use, secure data encryption, support of its channel distribution model and little to no need for technical support.

NovaStor Fills Gap in Fasthosts’ Portfolio by Offering Leading Backup Services
Fasthosts, a leading provider of hosted IT solutions, wanted to complement its services for over 400,000 customers and 6,000 resale partners with online backup. Fasthosts defined core requirements and evaluated leading cloud backup platforms. After extensive competitor analysis and tests, NovaBACKUP xSP proved as the top solution to provide a safe online backup service for worldwide data availability. NovaStor’s public cloud backup platform, NovaBACKUP xSP, swayed Fasthosts with its ease of use, simple administrative effort, and overall reliability. NovaStor’s software also convinced Fasthosts with its minimal need for technical support.

Safe, Encrypted and Fast Data Transfers with NovaBACKUP
NovaBACKUP xSP encrypts customer data before transmission and only decrypts the data when users restore it, allowing Fasthosts and its customers to rest assured their data is always safe and secure. In addition, NovaStor’s technology for extremely fast data transfers via the Internet, as well as its easy-to-navigate user interface and wide range of functions further support the quality of Fasthosts’ data back-up service.

NovaStor Powers Fasthosts Channel Distribution
Fasthosts also values doing business with a company that is fully understanding and dedicated to its reseller business model. By offering white labeling options and providing an application that untrained users can easily handle, NovaStor allows Fasthosts to implement an online backup service to support their indirect business models within a very short time. In addition, more than 6,000 Fasthosts’ resellers can offer Fasthosts’ online service with personal branding, including customized logo integration and color schemes. As NovaStor’s solution is very easy and reliable, resellers also take pleasure in selling a service that needs little to no support calls.

“We needed a service that is very simple to use, and works well. NovaBACKUP does that. From all the trials and competitor analysis we did, NovaStor came out on top,” said Stephen Holford, Marketing Director of Fasthosts. “In addition to the software being great, NovaStor understood our needs, and they worked really closely with us to help make sure we had a product we could take to market for our direct customer base and our reseller customers. They really pulled through for us.”

“NovaStor’s technology supports a wide range of business models in managed services and cloud backup. Fasthosts’ decision for NovaStor proves that our technology meets market requirements for direct and indirect distribution models,” comments Stefan Utzinger, CEO at NovaStor.
