Historically speaking, backups have been complicated, costly and a very manual process; buying the correct tapes, remembering to put them in at night, taking them home the next day. Not to mention the panic of finding the right tape to restore from, the wait for it to load, and then finding out that it was that time you saw the error and thought “Oh, it’ll be ok”…
Thankfully, backup technology has developed leaps and bounds in recent years. It has had to as the amount of data being produced is growing at an exponential rate, and the compliance requirements of what you have to do with it has increased too. In fact data has grown 46,900% in the last 15 years, and over the next 5 that is predicted to increase up to 162,900%.
The continued advance in the way that we create and consume data has meant that the way we back it up has changed too. Safe Data Storage entered the cloud backup market 15 years ago and is proud to provide hassle free backups to over 5000 devices on a daily basis.
We provide off site data storage for PC’s, Laptops, Mac’s, Physical Servers, Virtual Machines, Network Storage (QNAP and Synology), Email, Databases, Dropbox, OneDrive, Office 365, Exchange Online and SharePoint Online.
We are seeing increasing growth in the number of businesses that are moving across to Office 365, Exchange Online and an online shared file platform, that don’t necessarily understand the limits of the backups that are provided as part of the service. Our Cloud to Cloud back up service is proving to be very popular in bridging this issue, increasing the retention and providing the comfort of having data held outside of the public cloud provider.
Our off-site, encrypted, cloud based backup has been very popular in the Small to Medium Business space because of the simplicity and worry free nature of it. Once installed, we automatically back up the selected data and transmit it, encrypted, to our dedicated UK infrastructure.
We monitor this for you, provide reports, jargon free UK support and free restores when you need them. If required, we can retain the data and the changes for as long as you need or want to retain it.
We understand that all businesses have accounting preferences, so you can choose to pay monthly, quarterly or annually in advance depending on your budget. There is no difficult configuration for you to set up, we can complete this remotely for you and as you add folders and files to your structure, they automatically get added to the backups.
