Is Your Business Prepared for Data Loss?

Information and the underlying technology infrastructure are the life blood for most businesses. Studies show that 93% of companies who lose data or access to their systems for just 10 days file for bankruptcy within a year while 50% file for bankruptcy immediately*. Data loss can be devastating and having a reliable backup and disaster recovery system can mean the difference between staying afloat or not.

Backup & Disaster Recovery

What It Does and How It Works

Using a Network Attached Storage (NAS) based device, our system performs backups at the hard drive block level where the actual digital 1's and 0's are captured eliminating issues caused by open files.  And because our system operates at the block level, it is far more efficient than file structure formatted backups. A snapshot of the entire partition is taken at the block level so there is no file or folder exclusions, it's an exact reflection of your server(s). Which means database applications like Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server are transferred in blocks eliminating backup failures like when a file is open. With our device’s virtualization capabilities, it can also function as a replacement server if needed.

This unique device replaces management intensive, error-prone backups while providing much more…starting with peace of mind.

Key Components of Our BDR

Remote Storage and Base Remote Backup Image Creation - Online backups are stored (in encrypted form) at two secure online data backup centers located hundreds of miles apart from each other. The BASE IMAGE is sent via a hard drive to the primary remote storage facility. Incremental backups occur and are collapsed into the base image after the transfer is complete.

Recovery Options - Recovering files and folders is a simple process where the entire image is mounted as a volume on the NAS device. Files can then be copied to the destination server over the network. We can also restore files, folders, Exchange mailboxes or messages and SQL tables and databases.

Virtualization (Physical to Virtual) Standby Server Functionality - The NAS device can “virtualize” failed servers while keeping the system in the same state as it was before the problem arose. No configurations are necessary. In addition, once virtualized, the NAS will resume the backup schedule that was in effect before the failure.

Bare Metal Restore (Virtual to Physical) - When it comes time to restore the virtualized server back to physical hardware, our bare metal restore process allows restorations to dissimilar hardware.
