data backup & recovery

Don't be the guy that forgot to back up

70% of companies that suffer a serious data loss are out of business in two years. And it wasn't long ago that the safe and traditional backup strategy was to save all your information on a tape backup. At the end of the day, someone would have to remember to pop the tape out of the drive, label it, place it in a secure carrying case and take it to an off-site location. In the unfortunate instance that a disaster occurs on-site, all your data is safe on the back up tape. Or is it? If you're still operating this way it’s time to look at moving to a more cost effective and efficient solution. 

Traditional backup methods such as tape, disk, and strict Network Attached Storage devices are no longer sufficient and many businesses find them unacceptable to meet their needs. Technological innovations have set a new standard: Intelligent Business Continuity, going beyond data protection; delivering automated assurance, continuous protection, secured storage, and instant recovery. To provide this essential service, we partner with Datto, an industry leader in backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity. 

Off-site backup devices ensure that if a physical disaster (fire, flood, theft, etc.) were to strike, information could be retrieved from the off-site location. Most off-site backup options use the Internet to transfer data back to the business location and it can take weeks to download all your data from the web. With Datto backup solutions, a new device can be overnight shipped with all your otherwise-lost data. You can recover terabytes of information in 24 hours, which would be nearly impossible through Internet transfer. 

See the difference

Traditional Backup Datto Intelligent Business Continuity
Can take weeks to recover data after a disaster occurs
Downtime after a disaster is reduced to hours, minutes, or even seconds
High risk for human error due to heavy manual administration: 60% of on-site disasters are due to human error
Full automation backup —very little manual management required
Difficult to test if a backup is working properly
Automated screenshots are taken and reported to ensure each backup was successful and can be booted at anytime
Time consuming and expensive to make copies of backups or to store backups in multiple locations
Each backup is saved in multiple locations: local appliance and bi-coastal data centers
Backup speeds are slower
Quick and efficient transferring of files to off-site data centers, even with low bandwidth or busy network environments. Critical data can be prioritized to be transferred off-site first.
Physical to virtual conversions can be time consuming and have a high failure rate
Incremental backups can be instantly virtualized, rather than the entire backup chain
No redundant backups in multiple locations, leaving high risk for original backup systems to be destroyed
Eliminates downtime in the event of a disaster by allowing your business to run off the secure cloud
Limited options for encrypting data, may not pass industry regulations (i.e., HIPAA, SOX)
AES 256 and SSL key-based encryption ensures data is safe and meets industry regulations (ie. HIPAA, SOX)
When recovering data, tape failure rates exceed 50% Minimal risk of corrupted backups or data loss
Potential for theft of loss of media
Off-site backups stored in SSAE 16 data centers
