Hewlett-Packard to Resell Spare Backup Service; Companies Team to Deliver Fully Automated Backup Service to HP Customers
Spare Backup Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newport International Group (OTCBB:NWPO), offers the most effortless backup service ever designed for small business users, business travelers and professionals who work extra hours from home. From set-up through file selection and scheduling, no user interaction is required. Instead, the Spare Backup service on its own instantly recognizes files on the user's hard drive, including Outlook e-mails, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, digital photos, QuickBooks files and MP3 music files and more. Each file, along with the data needed to preserve its unique look and feel, is then replicated, encrypted twice and transported over the user's broadband Internet connection every weeknight. From there, the backup files are stored in Spare's twin secure data centers, where they are accessible from any high-speed Internet-connected computer anywhere.
As part of HP's commitment to small businesses, the company will offer Spare Backup service via their e-commerce Web site. Two months of free service will also be provided as a special promotion to customers who purchase selected hardware and peripherals through the HP site. The Spare Backup service backs up individual desktop and notebook computers and normally costs $15.99 a month. HP will offer discounted plans of six-months, one-year and two-years pre-paid service. All of the Spare Backup service plans include up to 5 gigabytes of secure, remote storage.
