What is Cloud Backup?
Cloud Backup from Design Communications is a managed ‘Backup as a Service’ (BaaS) product that allows organisations to automate the backup of the data stored on their servers onto a secure and highly resilient storage facility within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure – guaranteed to be in the UK.
The Cloud Backup service consists of two elements – a user agent that is installed on your servers and a portal from which users can configure the service to suit their needs.
You can also choose how long you need the data kept for and how often you'd like the backups.
Key advantages of a Cloud-based backup service
Small businesses don’t have unlimited IT budgets. It’s important to use a solution that makes sense and won’t require you to incur a capital expenditure. For as low as a few hundred Pounds per quarter, your organisation can have all of its data backed up to the cloud.
It’s important to keep a copy of files off-site. Even if business files are backed up on a file server, a hurricane, flood, fire or theft could destroy the computers and backups. Keeping backed up files in the cloud ensures data is safe no matter what happens.
Cloud Backup solutions make ongoing management and file recovery easy.
Cloud Backup doesn’t require an additional time commitment from you. Computer files are backed up to the cloud automatically on a daily (24 hour) basis, however, you’re also able to start a backup immediately which can be used to mitigate risk in the case of a major system change. Ad-hoc backups will remain available for 24 hours.
