Companies that depend on computers for data storage often run the risk of losing critical information when a disaster strikes the corporate office. Threat of fire, earthquake, theft or other calamity can cause concern for both employers and employees.
Simi Valley-based NovaStor Corp. and the Siemens company are working to alleviate some of that anxiety.
Siemens Nixdorf Information Systems has selected NovaStor to supply the online data backup software it will market to communications and cable service providers.
The software, NovaNet-WEB, will be included in the Siemens CyberShuttle package, which will allow Siemens' clients to provide corporate customers off-site backup and recovery services.
"CyberShuttle basically is the hardware, software and services needed to get competitive local exchange telephone companies into the business of allowing backup to customers," said Brian Dickman, director of business development for NovaStor.
