Disaster Recovery - Data Backup
Effective disaster recovery based on reliable data backup and retrieval is critical to any organisation. Disasters such as data corruption, fire, theft, hardware failure, malicious damage and virus attack are common and highlight the importance of a secure data backup and recovery plan.
Backup is the first part of a two-stage process necessary to protect yourself from becoming a Department of Trade and Industry statistic. "75% of all companies that suffer a major data loss go out of business within 18 months." (source DTI).
It is essential that in the event of data loss a recent and reliable copy of your data is at hand. Time is money and extended periods of downtime can seriously undermine the viability of a business, not just in immediate financial terms but also in terms of reputation. A loss of client data may also put you in breach of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Until recently, the most reliable form of protection has been hardware-based backup solutions such as tape drives or CD. However, these have a number of significant drawbacks.

Your data is automatically backed up each day to two secure offsite data centres - no hardware, no hassle. You decide when you want to schedule your backups. Your data is encrypted, password protected, compressed and transmitted via your existing internet connection to the mirrored data centres ready for instant restore.
