Backup & DR

Business continuity is becoming more and more crucial: business-critical IT systems, data growth and increased awareness of disaster recovery (DR) scenarios have made a comprehensive backup strategy essential.

How we can help

Security is integral to everything we do, and our cloud hosting focus gives excellent DRaaS options and fast access to data back-ups. You get peace of mind that your critical data is securely stored, while our remote backup service gives you complete data availability, alongside support to restore and recover files when needed.

With a hybrid cloud solution, we can spec DR environments with business critical data in private cloud and recovery scenario information safeguarded in the public cloud.

Our backup and DR services focus on systems that are efficient, robust and fully operational at all times, so our customers know their systems can be swiftly restored in the event of a disaster situation, allowing full business continuity.

Off-site data

Store your critical data securely at one of our six offsite data centres. Our DRaaS service includes:

  1. secure backup
  2. annual disaster recovery testing and certification
  3. automate backups as standard

Why virtualisation?

Virtualisation offers the opportunity to build in stringent disaster recovery processes without replicating everything, creating a cost-effective, efficient recovery environment. The rise of virtualised environments have increased the flexibility and agility of Disaster Recovery options. You’ll find an array of failover options designed to protect VMs from everything from the loss of a single virtual host to an entire rack of servers.
