Losing your files is something that is going to happen to you one day, not something that might happen. Statistics show that a hard drive crashes every 15 seconds and 25% of data loss is due to failure of a portable drive such as an external drive or a USB Flash drive. Don't become victim to an inevitable electronic disaster. Start backing up your data online with BackupSilo today.
Files can be lost in many ways, most of which are beyond your control. The most common reasons for data loss are as indicated on the pie chart below.
Thousands of businesses lose millions of dollars worth of data to disasters like fires, power outages, theft, equipment failure, and even a simple operator mistakes. Studies show that nearly half of the companies who lose their data in a disaster never reopen. 90% percent of these data losses occur because of hardware failures, human error, power failures, viruses, theft, data corruption, and natural disasters.
With hard drive prices going down, the threat escalates as companies purchase huge hard drives and rely on them to store critical business information. Backing up your data has become more important than ever before, but very few companies do it right and some do not backup at all.
Most business owners would be appalled if they knew the risks they are taking by failing to properly backup their data. It is more important than ever to protect the data that your business depends on with a solid backup strategy.
What is Online Backup?
An online backup offers an alternative to optical or tape backup solutions. While traditional methods can be very effective, they require capital to set up and staff to operate them. An online backup system avoids these problems.
BackupSilo supplies a software agent to be installed on the computer to be backed up. This busy piece of software allows you to select the files to be backed up, manages the internet connection, encrypts and compresses the data before securely transferring it across the internet to a secure, remote location, and allows you to view and restore the backed up data.
Why Backup Online?
Having an online backup system will save your day should your premises ever burn down, or the fireproof box containing your backup disks get stolen.
The easiest means of backing up online is to set up a leased line to a remote server, and transfer data to it at whatever interval you think is appropriate. This requires extra hardware and is an obvious non-starter for a company that works from only one site. With BackupSilo you can automatically backup your data offsite. All you need is an Internet Connection. You can restore your data online, or by paying for a fully backed up Server delivered to you place of choice if ever a site goes completely down. We apply high level compression technologies to help manage your backup files and do Bank standard encryptionn on all your data. We ourselves are unable to decrypt your data so your security will not be compromised. We employ military-strength encryption so that even if your files are intercepted in transit they remain indecipherable.
BackupSilo's service only transmits elements of a file that have been changed instead of the entire file. This is particularly important in corporate environments to avoid bandwidth problems.
Let us save you time, money and the hassles associated with managing your backups. With BackupSilo your backups are guaranteed and your recovery is guaranteed with a 99.999% success rate.
With Data Center locations in Canada, USA and UK we can ensure that your data stays within regulated or compliance friendly borders.
