Backup Storage Services

Data backup is regarded as an insurance plan and is crucial for most organisations. Don't be a statistic! You only understand how important your backup solution is until something goes wrong and you’re without your data.

The implementation of a solid data backup and recovery plan will ensure that you never suffer irreversible damage from the following;

NAS & JBODS (Local Storage)

Network Attached Storage (NAS) allows multiple users to store and share files in a centralised location rather than individuals storing files on their own computers. By using NAS documents, reports, music and videos can be shared with anyone who has access to the network making NAS an ideal business storage solution. RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a key feature built into NAS Devices allowing data to be written across multiple drives to ensure data is not lost should a drive fail.

Cloud Storage & Archiving (Offsite Storage)

The aim of a cloud archive service is to provide a data storage environment as a service that is optimised for long-term data retention, security and compliance with data regulation policies. Once in the cloud, data must be easily searchable via metadata; protected from overwrites or tampering, and provide client- or legally specified, automatically applied data retention policies.

Colocation

Organisations use and maintain their own equipment through colocation. Organisations rent space in a colocation facility to reduce the running costs of maintenance, communications and space within the data center. Colocation opens up the opportunity for organisations to maintain complete control over equipment. Organisations that offer colocation facilities must adhere to precise data protection or compliance requirements for example HIPAA, PCI and SOX for a colocation environment.
