FREE  – New Central Monitoring Application

The NovaStor “Backup for the Rest of Us” philosophy is further emphasized in this new release by building on the promise of offering a more convenient way for users to monitor their backups with the all new CMon central monitoring application.   Based directly on customer feedback, engineers have designed CMon to let users oversee NovaBACKUP installations and specific backup jobs.  Whether in the same building, from remote locations, or on-the-go with a smartphone, clients and IT providers now have immediate insight into the status of critical data. Resellers can quickly setup clients and arrange them into groups for convenient status checks at a glance. By defining the CMon users and roles within your company, you control who has the visibility into client backup jobs. Define which staff member will take responsibility over certain customers or be given specific access privileges.  Designed with flexibility in mind, the dashboard adapts to user’s individuals needs and allows them to prioritize alerts.  Available for users on any Microsoft support browser or smartphone, version 18 makes it easier than ever to monitor all backups and activities from one easy to navigate console. The CMon is now available for FREE as a complimentary download from the website.
