YOUR DATA IS YOUR BUSINESS!
So, are you protecting it that way?
If not, then we have something we need to talk about!
Setting up a Data Backup, recovery and retention policy is the ONLY way to prevent disaster from happening to your company. Safeguarding your data is CRITICAL in today's world. With nearly 100,000 new malware "bugs" (Viruses, Keyloggers, Worms and other nasty things) per day being released, the risk to your data is now worse than ever. It is not a matter of if you will need a good backup system, it is simply a question of when.
How Much is Your Data Worth?
You have invested a lot of TIME, MONEY, and ENERGY to develop your Business Data. Whether it is sales records, proposals, receivables, presentations, formulas, or client lists, this data is the heart of your business. Data loss is not acceptable. Government studies have shown:
1MB of data is worth approximately $10,000*
Re-building just 20MB of lost data could cost more than US$17,000 and nearly three weeks to re-build**
Retrieval of data from a crashed hard drive can cost you a fortune, and there is NO GUARANTEE of success!***
Data Loss Can Be Fatal
Your business data goes hand-in-hand with your business operations. The loss of such data, or even its temporary inaccessibility, may threaten your hard-earned competitive position.
Companies without proactive backup and recovery policies are likely to be OUT OF BUSINESS within 2 years of a major disaster****.
Loss of business data may ruin your company's reputation or may lead to expensive litigation.
Most importantly, it interrupts your business continuity.
Conventional backup methods (e.g., tape or manual systems) are not good enough
They require daily human interaction. (We do not)
They have a high failure rate during restoration. (We do not)
Critical backup failures will not be detected until it is time for restoration. (Ours monitors itself during the entire process)
Slow read/write speeds plus high cost of maintenance and licensing (Ours is all digital and never needs replaced)
Fixed capacity per unit makes backup job less flexible. (We have total flexibility)
Requires daily human interaction. (Did we mention, DataGo/DataProtect is totally automated and sends out e-mail confirmations so you know exactly where you are with your backups??)
We offer two offsite backup services. One is a file level backup, DataGo, which is designed for smaller clients who do not need the higher level services such as Server Imaging. The DataGo service is a great service if you have critical documents that you want to get off site for safety, but do not have a dedicated server that needs a full backup imaging solution. DataGo will work on an individual workstation as well as a server.
DataProtect is our full server imaging solution. DataProtect provides the following benefits:
~ Rapid recovery from bare metal to dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments.
~ Centralized backup administration from a management console.
~ ShadowProtect Image Manager to automatically consolidate backup image files.
~ Verification and re-verification of backup images.
~ VirtualBoot technology for quick failover to a virtual server.
~ Converter tool to convert to .VHD or .VMDK.
~ Automatic backup of SQL, Exchange and other critical applications.
~ Granular recovery of individual files and folders in moments.
~ Simplified migration to new Windows servers.
~ Scheduler for automatic full and incremental backups.
