A good backup can mean the difference between life and death for your business. Backups and business continuity plans are crucial in helping your business bounce back from all kinds of unplanned emergencies. Consider some of these statistics:
ISWest helps its clients protect themselves by backing up crucial data, disks or entire servers so that in the event of a computer crash or a disaster, they will have a plan for a quick recovery. The ISWest Backup service ensures that your organization will always be just a few steps away from being back online even if disaster strikes, without adding a huge burden of maintenance to your staff.
ISWest and its partners provide a variety of backup services that can meet all kinds of various business needs.
Online Backup: Online Backup Service is a completely automated and professionally managed service that backs up your critical information, archives it our data center and makes it immediately available for recovery. Our Online Server Backups are the most advanced and secure data protection solutions for companies large and small. It's a "tape-less" backup and recovery solution, which means no hardware or software purchases, and a fully automated process requiring minimal employee time or resources.
Local Storage: Online backup is great, unless you need to restore. If your current backup or business continuity solution relies solely on the internet it could take days or weeks just to download the data required to recover from an interruption. With ISWest, your data is stored on a local appliance and then replicated to two other datacenters to give you the best of both worlds. You can recover quickly from a server failure or even a major disaster.
Disk-Based Backup: When your business depends on your data, relying on tapes alone can be dangerous. Tapes require constant oversight and upkeep, and their fragility and susceptibility to the elements compromises the protection of your essential information. In many cases, data isn't restored perfectly or is permanently lost. Disk-based backup eliminates the cartridge tape rotation, cleaning and retention, purchase of new tapes every 6 - 9 months and the daunting task of constant labeling and organizing. Disk-based backup truly is hassle-free protection and a business continuity solution, plus its format ensures much faster performance.
Virtual & Off-Site Recovery: Beyond just data protection and archiving, ISWest’s recovery strategy is built around our local or off-site 'emergency silos' - virtual environments that can be quickly restored and brought into production in the event of a business interruption or disaster. Whether it’s a single server or an entire office, ISWest’s business continuity solution can have you up and running quickly.
