Online data storage, backup and disaster recovery
Understandably, you’ve heard a lot recently about the consequences of failing to backup your data. It’s hardly surprising that 43% of companies who suffer a major loss of computerised data never reopen.
It will never happen to you, so why bother with time consuming and expensive backup tapes which often become corrupted? We totally agree, you shouldn’t. We offer a secure, off-site data storage and backup platform, for significantly less than standard tape based systems. The backup is customisable to your preferences, in that it can be automated or manual, and works across many applications that require application-specific support to ensuring your most important data is safeguarded.
Your data will be stored on our storage platform and can then be mirrored to a secondary server in an alternative location. This mirroring, which comes as standard with our backup package, enables your business to be safe in the knowledge that your data is secure in case of hardware failure, fire or natural disaster.
We can also offer the added option of connecting direct over a private connection at up to 10Gbps in the majority of UK data centres. This means unlimited data transfer and no bandwidth bills from your suppliers.
