visionapp Opts for NovaStor for Online Backup Offering

ROTKREUZ, SWITZERLAND and HAMBURG, GERMANY and SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - NovaStor, a leading provider of software solutions for data availability and protection, and the software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider visionapp announced their partnership at CeBIT 2008. visionapp is planning to integrate an online backup service based on NovaNet-WEB into its successful SaaS portal, VIVIO (www.vivio.de).

visionapp offers small and mid-size enterprises the very latest in professional software for customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), standard applications and business solutions for lease. With VIVIO, enterprises can reduce their IT expenditures and utilize all the advantages of a professional IT landscape at the same time. To enhance its offering, visionapp has opted for a professional data backup solution from NovaStor to provide a cost-effective and professional online backup solution.

NovaStor's NovaNet-WEB won visionapp over with its ease of use, high speed data transfer, and robust encryption technology. NovaNet-WEB allows cost-conscious VIVIO customers to use their Internet bandwidths efficiently, create daily backup schedules, and at the same time enable their users to quickly recover lost or damaged data at any time.

"In view of growing volumes of data and increasing security threats, the idea of integrating a backup service for us and VIVIO customers is top priority," says Jens Schneider, Executive Director of Hosting Business at visionapp. "We have opted for the online and offsite backup solution with NovaNet-WEB, because backup and recovery functions over the Internet provide our customers with available data at all times and from any location. Storing data at a different location also protects our customers from the simultaneous loss of data and backups due to fire or flooding at office premises. This flexibility is entirely in keeping with the VIVIO concept for success."

"visionapp's decision in favor of NovaNet-WEB exemplifies how NovaStor is catering to a growing demand for flexible online backup solutions. We also see this decision as an acknowledgement for striking the correct balance of cost-effective concepts and need-based functions -- unmatched by other providers -- that clearly sets NovaNet-WEB apart," says Mike Andrews, Managing Director and EVP of Sales for NovaStor.
