The Importance Of Backing Up Your Data Offsite

Nov 6, 2020 | Cloud | 0 comments

Is your data backed up?

Backup is a critical part of any IT setup, and of course, you understand the importance of protecting your business data. Your business holds a network of knowledge and information that you wouldn’t want in the wrong hands, or to hinder your business operations.

What could go wrong?

Data is critical to any business success, and data loss can lead to enormous consequences, like a loss in revenue or in worse cases, complete operational shutdown. Simply put, without data, many companies can’t perform day to day tasks, or correctly pay their employees, for example.

There are a number of different ways your business could fall victim to data loss such as mechanical malfunctions, physical damage, theft, hacking, power failure, accidental deletion, malware and viruses, or even natural disasters.

Some of the data you risk losing is customer data, business data, employee records, accounting information, contracts and legal documents, or even historical records that have helped build the business. All of which could affect the company operations with a decrease in productivity and effectiveness, loss in revenue, reputation, customer support or even losing partners.

But backing up your daily work can be time-consuming, expensive and not to mention, not secure, right?

There is another way; choose a cloud backup and DRaaS provider to ensure the protection of your data. Most importantly, choose a provider that has a comprehensive track record and vast experience, like us.

Backing Up Your Data

Meet Calnet BaaS. We offer you an easy solution that is secure, cost-effective and scalable, protecting data on physical servers, endpoints, virtual servers and in your cloud.

Although backing up your data is critical, the recovery should be your top priority. That’s why we offer a fully managed and monitored cloud backup solution. Our experienced technical team will monitor the backup for inconsistencies and report back to you. This will ensure that when you need to recover your data, you can do so with ease. We also have a very responsive support team that is there to guide you through any of your concerns.

Our various technologies handle mixed environments such as Windows, Linux, VMware, Hyper-V, Exchange, Office365, Google Apps, Salesforce, SQL and many more.

The benefits of backing up your data with Calnet

When you choose us as your provider, you can enjoy a managed and monitored backup service, with a support team that is always available. Choosing a provider that monitors the backup or DR replication, offers an extra layer of protection for your data. We’re extremely pro-active in responding to issues and manage the solution from start to finish and will allow you to set monitoring and management parameters that meet your needs.

Security is the most important factor in any backup solution. We ensure your data is encrypted the second it leaves your premises and throughout the entire backup process, in transit and in rest. Authentication protocols are also implemented to ensure that no one can restore your data to alternate hardware without authorisation.

As mentioned earlier, we have a local support team to assist in restore requests and in full disaster scenarios. Various backup technologies offer varying training programs with support staff too.

Consider your location too. We service all businesses based in Leinster, Ireland. Using an Irish provider, like us, puts you in compliance with the Irish Data Protection Act. Under EU legislation using a provider within an EU member state keeps you compliant with their new directive. However, the reasons for keeping data locally are more than just compliance. If your business loses hundreds of gigabytes or multiple terabytes of data, a physical restoration may be the only option. We offer a shuttle recovery service.

We’re experts in our field with decades of experience in data protection services, with a fully managed and monitored service. We put our clients’ minds at ease so that they can focus on what they do best; running their business. We use only the best technology to deliver the best possible service.
