How DataSafe’s RemoteSafeTM Backup works

Cutting-edge backup software

We use iBusNova software to send your data to us via your internet connection.

iBusNova is DataSafe’s proprietary backup software that is compatible with all Windows operating systems above and is easy to install.

You select which drives, directories or files to backup or exclude. Backup can be from both local or on networked computers.

Apple Mac computers can be backed up via a Windows computer. If your organisations only has Apple Macs, ask us about our free Windows computer loan service.

Pre-set or on-demand backups

After the initial full backup, only files that have been changed and new files will be backed up.

You can choose whether to back up automatically at pre-set times, or you can backup on demand. You can also mix these as required.

When the backup process begins, our software will:

  • Collect, compress (between and 2-20 times) and encrypt your files
  • Check the compression and encryption
  • Automatically connect with DataSafe and transmit the data to our site

As well as keeping your current data online, we make a daily tape copy of your backup and secure it offsite from us.

Secure storage

The latest versions of your backup are kept online. When you need a backup it is placed online for instant recall by direct download, unless the amount of data means this would take too long. In that circumstance, the backup is brought to your site or sent to you on a memory stick or external hard drive.

In addition, all versions of your files are archived on tape (two copies) in fire-proof media safes for two years (or more as required by you).

Fully Managed Service

RemoteSafeTM is a fully managed service that it is hassle free for you. For those on fixed backup schedules we will contact you if we do not receive a backup or if we note any aspect of your backup that is out of your normal pattern.

DataSafe also offers a free helpline service, so you have peace of mind that you are backing up safely and securely every time.

Infrastructure and backup

When we moved offices we asked DataSafe to install the structured network cabling. We also tasked them with connecting our existing system to it together with some new equipment and making sure we had internet access. They planned this with our staff and efficiently carried out their tasks diligently testing, repairing and extending what was already there and then retesting – all on time. They were very flexible in fitting in and working around a number of issues caused by others as well as resolving problems caused by an inept BT engineer.

We use DataSafe for our IT support and secure online data backup. In this they have always been highly responsive and persistent in following up and checking on outstanding issues that require action by us or 3rd parties. They are helpful when it comes to a data restore. They are patient and they understand that our business is about finding new clients and servicing them and that IT should support this endeavour and not hinder it.

We would recommend DataSafe for all your IT management and hosted services needs. They are a great partner to work with. You will have less hassle during the day and sleep better at night!
