A Remote Data Vault Provides Security Against IT Disasters

An off-site data vault protects against more than natural disasters

According to our research, 80 percent of companies that don’t have a plan in place to deal with catastrophic data loss will go out of business within 13 months of a disaster. Simply making on-site backups of important data is not enough to offer protection because most disasters of this sort destroy those backups along with the originals. The only way to ensure that something like a fire, flood, or earthquake doesn’t destroy essential information is to save copies in a distant data vault.

An off-site data vault protects against more than natural disasters. It will also be safe from power failures, surges, hardware failure, and software corruption that can destroy on-site equipment or files. This is because it isn’t physically connected to your company’s systems. Instead, it is accessed over the internet while it actually resides far away.

Aside from safety, one of the most important attributes for a backup system is speed of restoration. You won’t have any trouble restoring your information with our data vault. Once you get your on-site system back up and running, we’ll restore all of your data within minutes. This speed is essential in today’s business world, where it’s impossible to conduct transactions without access to computerized information and systems. We call our fast-restoration service “business continuity” because it is so much faster and smoother than traditional backup systems.

One of the most important benefits of our backup systems is that they allow for the full restoration of entire systems rather than simply providing copies of files. Anyone who has lost data knows that files are only a part of recovery – programs, operating systems, and other installables also need to be put back in a functional way. This isn’t a problem with our data vault. We can restore everything to full function within minutes. The data side of your business will be able to run as if it never went down even if you’re starting with all-new equipment on your side.
