Major Changes Coming From Actian Regarding PSQL/Zen Product Lines
Please note that ALL outstanding quotes for Actian Zen/PSQL are valid through Friday, April 12 ONLY. New pricing is expected to take effect on April 15, which is explained in more detail here. If you are planning on ordering ANY product, please get your order placed as soon as possible. As Actian did not provide us with enough time to update our shopping site web server, we are taking that system off-line to prevent taking orders that Actian will not fulfill. Please expect order fulfillment to take 12-48 hours, with orders being placed on Friday likely to take several days, depending on total volume. Stand by for more details, coming soon in our next Meteor newsletter.

NovaBACKUP Server

IMPORTANT NOTE: NovaBACKUP recently changed their channel marketing practices, eliminating our resale discount, removing our ability to sell the perpetual licenses (which was our primary offering), and raising the price of the product considerably. Further, they are changing their NovaBACKUP subscription options effective on March 21, 2024, resulting in additional (and massive) price increases of 50% and more, and they are now forcing all subscription users to pay for the Cloud Storage option, even if you don't want or need it, which results in an effective 200% price increase. We are currently evaluating our partnership with NovaBACKUP and have removed their products from our shopping site. I still love the product, but at the increased pricing, I find it difficult to recommend it any more. We will re-evaluate our backup offerings this spring and will update our web site with the new offerings at that time. Feel free to send your feedback to NovaBACKUP via Email at

When you have your Actian PSQL/Zen data on a Windows Server computer, you know that your users are depending on your system to keep running, so that your business-critical applications can keep working for you. When it comes to protecting your data, you simply want the best protection that you can get, without paying an arm and a leg for it.

NovaBACKUP Server is your backup solution for computers running server-class operatng systems, including Windows Server 2012 (and R2), Small Business Server 2011, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server 2022. (However, if you are using Exchange, SQL Server, or Hyper-V, you should consider NovaBACKUP Business Essentials instead.) This product provides both data backups and full disaster recovery (image-level) backups in one simple-to-use package, and it also includes Universal Restore -- the ability to restore your backups to the same or completely different hardware -- all at no extra cost.

NovaBACKUP Server is one of the fastest (and least expensive) backup packages around -- and this is why Goldstar Software endorses this solution. It supports powerful scheduling, and can leverage pre- and post-backup commands to integrate with the Actian Zen Backup Agent to protect your Zen database files.

You can back up to just about any target, including tape drives, hard disks, network shares, NAS devices, USB devices -- even the Cloud (with a subscription model)!

The base product license includes NovaCare Premium support for one year, which includes full support via Email, telephone, and remote control, as well as product upgrade protection. You can even get initial setup support within 15 days of your purchase. The NovaCare support is renewable annually, or you can stay on the current product and let the support plan lapse -- while the perpetual license keeps working for you!

If you prefer a subscription model, you not only save money up front, but this also shifts the cost from a capital expense to an operational expense, which can provide some tax advantages. Further, the subscription model is available with additional options, including cloud storage, a central management console, and more.

Check out our on-line store for current pricing of the perpetual licenses. If you are interested in the subscription version, please contact us for details.
