Server Backups

Secure, business ready method of backing up your Windows server.

Our backup services can provide a comprehensive disaster recovery solution for businesses of any size. Whether you have 3 PCs and a file server through to hundreds of servers, we can provide a flexible backup system.

The comprehensive backup system will secure your Data, Exchange, SQL, VMware Machines, MySQL and keep them safe in our Ultra Secure Bunker.

The backups will run as a Windows service, so there is no need to be logged on to the server for backups to run and can also backup live Exchange or SQL databases. It can fully restore entire SQL or Exchange information stores after a complete loss.

We regularly test the backup system to ensure that it’s working as specified.

Disk Imaging

Why Mirror Data?
Mirroring permits you to store identical copies of data on separate disks. Disk Imaging can be used to create an exact disk image of your hard drive. This is useful if you have a major server crash or hard disk failure as our system restores exactly using the backup image.

How does it work?

The disk imaging works incrementally allowing you to only backup the changes. You can then build up a library of disk images for use in recovery. The disk imaging file integrates into the windows recovery console and can be used by booting from a windows CD - reducing downtime considerably. Restored bare metal disk images can also be used as a virtual machine, and boot up in VMware or Virtual PC environment. In most cases this can be done in a few minutes, keeping server downtime to a minimum.
Together, increased safety of data and increased system availability promote high availability in the event of disaster or server failure.
