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.

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!
