The smallest amount of data loss can result in days of business downtime. Do not allow this to happen to your organisation.

Cloud Back Up

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.

Why is backup so important?

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.

With new regulations such as GDPR and with greater threats to IT security, it is more important than ever to ensure that your data is secure and protected.

What online backup can do

  • Backup your files, databases and emails to our secure off-site servers,
  • Enable instant access to your databases and documents through a web interface,
  • Ability to recover data from other applications,
  • Backup all your data through the internet, day or night,
  • Gain access to your emails if your server is unavailable.

Benefits of Cloud Backup

There are multiple benefits to using a online backup service, some of the main reasons that SA1 found beneficial to our customers are:

  • Control, better budgeting with greater flexibility: Cloud storage provides all levels of better control, this service is usually set at a distinctive price per amount of storage required and for how long that backup is held. There is also greater control of growth, cloud solutions can scale so whether you are a small business growing rapidly or a large organisation there is storage space to suit.
  • Reduced risk and reduced downtime: Cloud computing benefits from all the latest security methods and it is much quicker to get back up and running in the case of an emergency. With cloud storage if your business is affected in anyway you can access your data instantly and keep your business up and running.
  • Zero Infrastructure investment or maintenance: As you will be using a cloud-based service, there will be no expensive hardware that you will have to buy or maintain. Your existing corporate computer network is all you need in terms as hardware. Your backup, if you choose to restore it is as simple (in most cases) as a download and requires no additional expensive hardware.
