We all know the information on our computer systems is important to our businesses, and in many cases vital. Despite this, the vast majority of small businesses do not have adequate backup and data recovery systems in place.
Backup solutions are notoriously difficult to run and manage reliably - no one wants to take day-to-day responsibility for them and all too often they are left failing for prolonged periods. On top of this, backups are rarely checked and little, if any, consideration is given to how the data will be recovered should a disaster occur.

BusinessCARE Backup is the perfect solution to address all these problems.
What is BusinessCARE Backup?
BusinessCARE Backup is available as an add-on to our BusinessCARE Support service contract and allows all of the data on your servers to be easily and reliably backed up away from your ‘live’ system with no intervention by you or your staff, giving you peace of mind that if anything goes wrong you have a complete disaster recovery solution.
It consists of a number of components that are configured to your exact requirements to provide the ultimate data backup solution.
Rapid Recovery is the core component of the service; it protects you from the most common data loss issue - hardware failure. Your entire system is stored on an hourly, daily or weekly basis to a permanently connected independent disk, ready to be restored at any time.
To guard against major disasters such as flood or fire, where your entire office or computer room is destroyed, off-site storage is required. BusinessCARE Backup has two components for this that work independently or together to provide total protection. The Auto Off-Site component is entirely automated and creates a backup of your critical files over the internet to a secure off-site location. The Manual Off-Site (Server only) component stores a password protected image of your entire system onto portable disk drives that are taken off site on a rotational basis. The main advantage of this is that a complete system can be more rapidly restored than from a backup of only files and folders.
BusinessCARE Backup is your total disaster recovery and business continuity solution.
