Running backups is essential to any business, loosing just a fraction of your business data could have a catastrophic affect.
The smallest amount of data loss could have your business down for many hours, or days even, as you try to recover what you have lost.
With GDPR standards now becoming tighter on data control, having a secure and reliable backup service is essential.Get in Touch about Cloud Back Up
Especially in this day and age, every business must have a resilient disaster recovery procedure in place.
Backing up your information to a local backup such as an external hard drive is not good enough. It is not as reliable can only provide you with the last version you uploaded.
The technical definition for cloud backup, known also as online backup is the process of ‘backing up’, or copying data over a proprietary or public network to an off-site server. This process copies your data and stores a version of it onto another media or storage system. This method allows for easy access to that data if required during a data recovery situation.
SA1’s online storage system is a fast, protected and automated system that enables you to access your business data anytime, anywhere, via the internet.
Here at SA1 we have over 14 years’ experience providing businesses of all sizes with cloud storage and are proud to own our own IT centric office, complete with our own Network Operations Centre (NOC). This NOC houses our in-house data centre that is built, tested and monitored by our skilled engineers and is meticulously set out to follow our stringent disaster recovery solution.
Well, we prefer to have complete control, with our data centres housed in our building that means at any minute our engineers can access them to complete updates, testing or general maintenance.
Our server room is temperature and humidity controlled, that alerts staff members if a limit is hit. We have a full fire suppression system that is connected to the emergency services. Our in-house data centre is also backed up to multiple locations to ensure that in all scenarios our customers, and our business is protected.Learn more about Servers
As with all our IT services, our cloud storage is designed around your business needs and requirements.
There are so many ways we could assist you in creating a more secure and rigid backup. Depending on your situation, your budget and your requirements, SA1’s trained engineers will design a plan that will provide you with the best solution.
Once you are happy with our capabilities and have chosen to work with SA1, we will run an initial backup and complete a data transfer of all your data onto your new online backup service. We will then use a sync service to set up an automatic back up. On an ongoing basis, the backup solutions will complete file syncs to ensure that any updates made are stored and backed up accordingly. This is another reason why an online backup service is the best for companies that complete activities such as file sharing. It ensures that any edits made by any member of the organisation is stored and backed up accordingly.
