Data Backup & DRP

Many companies like yours are looking to improve business with new online services that foster growth while reducing costs, minimizing risks, and increasing agility. Multi-cloud environments are increasingly the answer.


What is data backup?

In short, backup is copying your files to another disk. This can be through a tape backup, Network attached storage, a secondary computer, or a cloud hosted backup solution.

It is important to have a backup solution in place. Backup protects your data in case of theft (a single laptop to office break-ins), employee accidents (deletion of an important file), or a technical issues (crashed hard drive). With this protection, you can access a copy of your data and restore it easily.



What is disaster recovery?

Your requirements will be determined by your business’s size and industry. Our cloud services are made up of a range of infrastructures, including public cloud IaaS, managed private cloud, managed hosting, security and application services. This means we can support you at every step of your journey to the cloud.

You’ve heard all of the commotion regarding the cloud I’m certain. But do you really understand what it is and how it can help your business?

There are no up-front server hardware costs for you to pay

As the “cloud” server belongs to someone else and you only rent the space – we pay for the cost of the server, the hardware and the up keep of the equipment. If it develops a fault then we pay for the repair – not you.


You can access your data on any device at anytime

Be that a PC, Mac, Laptop, Tablet or Smart Phone – Unlike traditional IT networks you do not physically connect to the server, it’s all done through the browser or internet as a result – device drivers and local network protocols do not apply – making it easy for you to access your data without time spent on installing drivers etc.

The Cloud is like any other utility;

Gas, electricity etc. – you don’t care where it comes from, just as long as it’s there when you need it – and as a utility, you only pay for what you use, generally on a month by month basis.


Is the cloud secure?

Most certainly – as we’ve already said, online banking uses cloud computing. The majority of cloud data centres use military grade security when it comes to looking after your data and almost all cloud services are accessed using SSL and HTTPS internet security.

Cloud servers are maintained constantly and the data is usually replicated securely to other data centres to ensure off site backup of your data.

The truth of the matter is that cloud computing is much more secure & reliable at lower costs, than having your own server onsite.

Wishing for better IT support? It just came true.
