Why offsite backup

A reliable regime for offsite backup and storage requires:

  • frequent, regular backup
  • encryption of the data for confidentiality
  • secure transport
  • data integrity
  • fast access to the data

It’s difficult and costly for organisations to achieve these requirements in-house. Backing up internally intrudes on core business activities and staff typically treat it as low priority. The system often relies on unprofessional practices such as tapes being taken home by staff. When staff are ill, on vacation or change there is an hiatus. As a result secure procedures are often bypassed, even though the risks of losing vital information are known.

The personnel costs of in-house backup are high and often severely underestimated. Add them up! They include: procedure setup, testing and maintenance, backup organisation, daily tape management, restore checking, and quality control.

Network performance

We had been having issues with our network and slow internet access for a number of months. Particularly sub-standard was our Wifi access. This is used extensively in the office and was bad news for a website design agency. Our productivity was suffering. With no help forthcoming from our ISP I finally called in DataSafe.

Within hours of my request an initial inspection had been arranged with a member of the DataSafe team. This was followed up within 48 hours with a list of recommendations and quotation as to how we could improve connectivity. DataSafe had identified a number of problems relating to our network switch and the Wifi router configuration. The MD of DataSafe was on also hand to clarify items and fill any gaps in my understanding.

24 hours after finalising a course of action, the new system had been installed, setup and configured resulting in a dramatic improvement to our network, Wifi and our Internet connectivity.

The fast reaction, advice and speed have proved invaluable. I can’t thank DataSafe enough for the productivity improvement in the office.
