Disaster Recovery

How would your business function if you were to suddenly lose your data and applications? Whether it’s a hardware failure, a virus, or a rogue employee, there are any number of things which could threaten the day-to-day operation of your business.

A proper disaster recovery plan is like having an insurance policy for your business services.

If a critical piece of hardware fails, we’ll have a replacement unit on site fast. All your data will be backed up regularly so your systems can be restored to their original state before downtime starts causing major problems.

If an employee makes a mistake and deletes a crucial file, we’ll ensure it’s restored.

Along with this we will provide a Disaster Recovery plan to show you how the backup works as well as what your expectations should be in the event of a disaster.

If your business is hit by a flood or any other sort of natural disaster we can have new hardware, containing all your data, set up in a new location.

If your service relies on being accessible to customers, we’ll help you recover from infrastructure issues before your customers are too badly affected.

Military grade security

We secure your data with the same rigour that we secure our own and all our encryption is military-grade.
Restore Options

Restore to any hardware

We can restore your full system images to any hardware, physical or virtual.
Stored in the UK

Stored in UK datacentres

We’re only able to provide this level of service by having complete control over the data we store and backup for you. For this reason, we only use UK data centres. You wouldn’t store your business contracts abroad so we don’t store your data there.

Flexible Backup Schedule

Your data is backed up daily by default and retained for 60 days, with incremental hourly snapshots, but you can set your own schedule if you prefer. E.g. twice daily incremental, 6-month retention? No problem – just let us know.

Flexible and easy restores

Deleted a file by accident? Just right-click on the folder where the file was located and click restore. Of course, you can still call us with details of what you want restored and where you want it restored to if you prefer.
Backup Storage

Local and offsite backup storage

Backups are initially made to local storage servers (ensuring speedy backups and restores), then encrypted and replicated offsite for additional peace-of-mind.

Business Backup Service

We have created a Managed Business Backup Service to include the very best of onsite and offsite data storage methods which has protected over a petabyte of customer data this year alone.

By employing our own combination of software, hardware, and built in features of most modern server platforms we are able to collect nightly system images (which are kept for 60 days), and hourly data snapshots to provide quick and easy recovery from the small changes like file deletions (stretching back a minimum of 30 days).

We will also provide a full Disaster Recovery plan to show you how the system works as well as what your expectations should be in the event of a worst case scenario.
