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.

Disaster recovery and IT support

After DataSafe spectacularly restored all our business data when our servers in New York were swamped by Perfect Storm Sandy we decided to use their IT support services as well knowing from their track record the excellent attention and support we would get. We know we can pick up the phone to sort out a problem and have been very happy with our decision and the peace of mind that has resulted.
