Managed Offsite Backup Vs. Tape-Based Backup

Tape backup is responsible for more problems than many companies would like to admit. Storage Magazine reports that over 34% of companies do not test their backups – and of those that tested, 77% found their tape backups fail to restore.

Vulnerable to human errors from accidentally writing-over data to losing tapes, this outdated backup process has been plagued by failure. The medium itself ages and breaks.Are you confident that your critical data is safe and easily accessible? Are you happy with the amount of time you’re devoting to backups, restores, and archives?With rising concerns associated with self-managed data protection – including equipment costs and maintenance, disaster recovery readiness, regulatory compliance, and more – Disaster Recovery Group’s online data backup and recovery services offer quick and simple service setup, unparalleled security, and redundancy on multiple levels.

Secure, Automated Offsite Data Backup Services

Disaster Recovery Group’s offsite data backup services deliver advanced data protection that combines data backup and offsite storage into one automated step by simply installing software and leveraging existing Internet connectivity. With disciplined, automated offsite backup, expert technical support, and disk-based recovery devices, you can focus on core competencies knowing your business is fully protected.

Subsequent to the first backup, changed data is detected and is the only data to be transferred and compressed before being stored in our secure datacentres. Since changed data typically represents a few percent of native data, this process greatly reduces backup windows. Integrity checks and email notification complete the process.Backup data is stored on industry-leading disk arrays located in state-of-the-art co-location facilities. Each datacentre is monitored and equipped with redundant power and telecommunication supplies, climate controls, and fire suppression systems.

Disk-Based Recovery: Fast, Reliable, & Secure

Disk-based recovery saves time and money compared to tape-based backup and recovery solutions. For most restores, backup data is accessible at any time from anywhere.
