Answers to the Most Common Online Backup and Recovery Questions

Backup is making extra copies of data.As companies large and small struggle to keep up with ever-expanding amounts of data, and with cyberthreats at an all-time high, online backup and recovery is a hot topic these days. In this blog, we share our answers to the most common online backup and recovery questions.

Q: Why Do I Need an Online Backup and Recovery Solution?

A: Power outages, accidents, cyberattacks, and natural disasters can limit access to your data. In addition, mounting pressure to follow regulatory requirements is a reality every business faces. Online backup and recovery gives your business easy-to-manage, scalable data protection and business continuity strategies.

Q: How Does Online Backup and Recovery Work?

A: The data on your servers and workstations are transferred with an agent-less backup technology to a secure virtual vault. Whether you need to restore a single file or an entire server, your data is available any time, without added fees.

Q: Can I Back Up My Staff’s Laptops?

A: Yes, any devices on your network, even offsite locations can be backed up.

Q: Can I Store Unlimited Data?

Yes, an online backup and recovery service is scalable and grows with your data storage needs. If your data grows from gigabytes to petabytes, you still have a reliable backup and recovery solution.

Q: How Is My Data Protected?

A: Your files are encrypted during backup and storage. You can choose from AES 128-bit, AES 256-bit, or 448-bit Blowfish military-grade encryption. Cloud-optimized architecture allows you to backup and recover data over a private or public cloud connection or remote public location securely.

Q: What If My Server Goes Down After Hours?

A: An online backup and recovery service gives you anytime access to your data, so whether a local machine fails or a disaster strikes, your business operations continue with nominal downtime.

Q: How Much Does an Online Backup and Recovery Service Cost?

A: You should only pay for the amount of data backed up and stored. Look for a provider who offers up-front pricing without hidden fees.
