Backup Services

Offsite Backups

When disaster strikes your business the main concern is how quickly you can get your critical business functions up and running. The speed at which this happens will depend largely on your current backup strategy. An improperly designed strategy can result in days of downtime and possibly months/years, even permanent data loss. A correctly designed strategy can have you up and running again in minutes even in the most catastrophic situation.
One of the biggest issues is even if you have a correctly engineered solution unless the backups are stored offsite a disaster such as a fire or flood can both destroy your data and your backup. Computer IT Solutions provides a completely managed solution where your data is backed up to secure remote locations.

How It Works

pdf-1
An agent,pdf-datadupe is running on each of your servers and workstations is communicating over the internet with our backup servers in the Computer IT Solutions Data Centers. The agent is responsible for duplication of all your important data ensuring its risk of loss is prevented.
The agent acts intelligently ensuring that only changes in your data are backed up. This reduces the amount of data that has to be transferred saving backup time and bandwidth cost/usage.

When Disaster Strikes

The accidental deletion of a file can be resolved with the file restored to its last state or any other prior state within minutes. Just select the file and click “Restore” from any of the listed times and dates last modified.
In the event of a major disaster several options are available. If the Server or Workstation hardware is not damaged, or damaged parts have been replaced, the entire system can be restored to it. If not, the system can be restored “in the cloud” or to Computer IT Solutions backup hardware until hardware is repaired or replaced.

Block Level BackupAll backups are performed at the block level. This means that only changes are backed up offsite. This minimises the amount of data that is required to be transferred lowering costs and speeding up backups.

Bare Metal RestorationIn the event of a major disaster Offsite Backups can be restored to different hardware. This allows flexibility in that if the server is unrecoverable we can restore the server to the cloud while new hardware is on order. Once the new hardware arrives we can migrate the server from the cloud onto the new hardware.

Managed Backup Setup and MonitoringOffsite Backups are a managed product. We actively monitor the backups daily to ensure
they are running and we resolve any issues detected. This is critical as most Offsite Backup services are not professionally monitored. Don’t risk the loss of your data by assigning backup monitoring to someone on your staff who doesn’t have the proper expertise or motivation.

Let’s face it, data is important, and it has changed significantly over the years. At one time data could have simply been regarded as paper in file cabinets, and let’s face it, the transition to digital data was a difficult one for most. There are still some reservations held by many. For example, digital information can be easily lost. That is actually quite true, but you should also consider that data stored on paper can be lost, and it can be extremely difficult to piece back together after a fire, water damage, or even theft. Digital information on the other hand can be easily recovered and put back into use if you have the right software and a skilled technician ready to perform the recover. This, is where we come in.

That being the case, we will help you by performing backup services 24/7 and ensuring that your data is there, ready to be replaced or re-used in the event of a problem. Let’s face it, when it comes to stored data there are many things that can simply go wrong.

Backup services go far beyond simple data recovery.

All of these are incredibly important, and when it comes to backing them up, you need a company that you can trust – a company like us.

So Many Reasons to Back Up

While moving forward in any company is critical, there will always be plenty of reason for you to backup. As we said before, you have to consider your tax records, but you must also consider designs for products that you have created, or even service records for customers that you have worked with. This information will be instrumental in moving forward, and for this reason, you must do your best to ensure that it is safe.

Our service will not only allow you to back for information up, but also to access it virtually any time you need. Our security measures will help to ensure that you and only you will be able to gain access, ultimately guaranteeing that you will not only have a backup, but also a secure backup that you can count on for many years to come.

Business is tough, keeping your data secure can be even tougher. Make sure you account for all of the potential problems your enterprise can bring and make sure that you are ready for the worst. It may never happen, and hopefully you will never need that backup, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared!
