Datto

With so many options for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity, organisations are seeking a single, simple solution to the issue. We believe that we have found exactly that with Datto, delivering both onsite and (or) offsite back-up, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. This revolutionary new technology removes the headache of traditional back-up and recovery technologies such as tapes. Datto will replicate your IT infrastructure safely and securely to an onsite appliance and to the Cloud,  in the event of a major outage or disaster, you can either restore or boot quickly from the local image, or even use the image in the Cloud to continue to operate while your infrastructure is re-established.

Online Back-up

Most organisations now have key data saved on multiple devices (servers, desktops, laptops etc) but organisations are often unsure if all of this data is being backed-up.  Online Back-up offers a flexible option for the encrypted transfer and storage of key data in a secure, offsite facility.  With an online back-up strategy, automatic and regular back-ups are created for every device to minimise downtime, allow easy recovery, and ensure that important data is not lost in the event of a disaster.

Tape and NAS Drive Back-up and Testing

Tape and NAS drives are used by many thousands of organisations in the UK to produce regular data back-ups, and we have implemented literally hundreds of solutions from single tapes and hard disks to sophisticated auto-loading systems.

Unfortunately, backing-up data to tape is only half the story. Problems can occur when incomplete data is written to them, or when tapes are over-used or worn. Our Data Recovery & Testing service builds a replica server environment to check your back-up process and ensure that all essential data is available if needed. A summary report details the results and forms part of a wider data protection and recovery plan. And by the way, if you need help with a full Disaster Recovery or Business Continuity plan, we’d be delighted to help.
