I.T. disasters can come in a variety of guises, from fire and flood, through to the theft of equipment such as laptops. In all cases critical information can disappear within seconds. Important files, work-in-progress and customer information can all be irretrievably lost. Statistics show that 70% of small companies that suffer a major data loss go out of business within a year.
Every year 25% of PC users suffer some kind of data loss, and yet 96% of business workstations are not backed up at all.
Our disaster recovery service goes beyond standard backup services and ensures that, if the worst happens, it is possible to recover your applications and data either to the same machine or a different machine, and also protects you against the effects hardware failure, software failure, viruses, ransomware and even physical theft. We can also completely replicate critical servers using cloud services to get up up and running again quickly.
How does it work?
We will install our backup client on your computers. The client backs up your computer to our secure data centre, compressing and encrypting your data before it leaves your computer to ensure minimum bandwidth utilisation and maximum security. One problem with traditional backup solutions is that backups can be skipped either because they require user intervention to start the backup or because the computer is turned off at the scheduled time. Our solution requires no manual intervention and, if the computer is turned off at the scheduled time, an immediate “catch up” backup will be started the next time it is switched on.
In the event of a recovery being required we can restore individual files, directories or even a complete machine image either to the same computer or a different computer. If a site visit is required to recover your data then this is also included.
All backups are monitored from our state-of-the-art monitoring system so, in the unlikely events of a backup failing, we will be alerted immediately and can take action to remedy the situation.
Our backup and disaster recovery services works with Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, Hyper-V, VMWare, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and Oracle.
