Online Data Backup for your business
50% of SMEs that experience a major data loss will go under. (Gartner Group, 2005).
- Is all your critical business data backed up regularly?
- Are your backups stored in a secure off-site location?
- Does your backup run automatically with no user interaction?
- Are you able to retrieve backed up files from anywhere in the world?
- Does your backup solution have unlimited capacity?
If you answered NO to any of those questions, then our Online Backup service could be the answer.
Your data will be automatically encrypted and backed up over the internet to a secure datacentre, which is then backed up a second time to a separate secure datacentre, to ensure ultimate resilience.
All of our online backup customers benefit from our FREE monitoring service.
We regularly check your backup reports, and alert you of any problems, or if your usage unexpectedly increases, to protect you from unexpected cost increases.
We will always ensure that you are on the pricing band which is most cost-effective for the amount of storage space you are using.
We can also provide other backup solutions, so please call 020 8453 0700 to discuss your requirements.
The system uses In-File Delta Blocking to backup only the data which has changed since the last backup, to keep the amount of data being sent over the internet to a minimum.
In-File Delta Blocking can send only the portions of a file that have changed, so if you have a large file and make only a small change, only that part will get backed up the next day, rather than the entire file.
It's true that the initial backup, where all your files have to be backed up, can take a long time. However, the system can be set to only backup between certain times of day, so that the backup can be run overnight without impacting on performance when people are working. If the initial backup doesn't complete within this time, it will simply carry on from where it left off the next day.
Alternatively, you can perform the initial backup to a portable hard disk and send that to us, and we will load it onto the secure backup server for you - we can even rent you the disk if needed.
If you have to restore all of your data, it will take a long time. However, you can set up the system to store a local copy of your backup on a portable hard drive as well as backing it up online, so that you can restore more quickly from your local copy whilst still having the benefit of online backup.
In addition, we can perform a restore from the secure server to a portable hard disk and send it to you for a faster restore.
Yes, the software can backup Exchange, SQL Server, Lotus Notes, Oracle and MySQL.
Windows (desktops and servers), Macintosh, Linux, Unix and Netware.
Yes, you can have as many "machine accounts" as you like within one backup account. You pay only for the total amount of storage you need across all machines, so you benefit from economies of scale when you have several machines to backup.
