The thought of moving your business data to the cloud may seem overwhelming, but the possibility of losing all your crucial data in a disaster could be catastrophic.
Storing files on an internal or external hard drive is quickly becoming a thing of the past for businesses, largely due to the potential risks of losing the data forever. And, with cloud computing now mainstream, adopting this technology can complement and coexist with traditional backup or act as the sole backup and storage of data, depending on business needs.
Using cloud storage, your business data will reside in the cloud across numerous remote servers, located in data centres, in multiple locations,
COST OF DATA LOSS
Research by The British Chambers of Commerce found that 93% of businesses that suffer data loss for more than 10 days file for bankruptcy within 1 year and 50% immediately!
With ever-increasing volumes of data, cloud storage has many advantages over conventional data storage methods:
Without the need to support internal servers, IT staffing and maintenance costs are significantly reduced. And, you only pay for what you use, rather than having to estimate the capacity.
You no longer need to carry around a physical storage solution, with internet access you can retrieve your data from any location, any time. Providing this flexibility enables greater efficiency, saving the business money.
Allowing staff access to your data means group-working, communication and collaboration is straight-forward. And, businesses can better manage workflow, regardless of location.
Moving your data to the cloud means better data protection, especially in the event of a natural disaster, as your files will be held in multiple locations. Data moved offsite can be deduplicated to speed up the backup process and then encrypted for added protection.
FAST DATA RECOVERY
If in the event of data loss, minimise disruption by quickly recovering entire systems to the same or different computer, including bare metal.
Easily protect all users from a central location with a touch-friendly, web-based management portal.
SIMPLE SEEDING SERVICE
Transferring terabytes of data to the cloud via your internet could take months or even years. Seeding works by placing the initial backup on a secure drive and giving it to the data centre who will upload the data in a matter of weeks. Incremental changes then get backed-up regularly.
