Data Management Has Improved
Traditional backup solutions focused on copying data to a tape or external disk which was then taken off-site. However, this only covered one perspective of data management. The time required to restore data to a usable state could take several days, leaving a business crippled. Furthermore, restoring individual files rather than an entire data store was sometimes not possible. It also involved an individual having to remember to insert tapes and take them off-site. The retrieval of archived data could also be a lengthy process and mean high capacity tapes or disks would need to be kept.
Thankfully, things have moved on a lot since those days, so you can now enjoy the benefits of an automated cloud backup and restore service, designed to fit around your individual backup requirements. Best of all, when compared to traditional solutions, it is very affordable.
We can back up critical data from servers, desktops and laptops, and restore data to its original location or a new location of your choice. Stored files will be recovered whenever requested.
Furthermore, since the enforcement of GDPR legislation in May 2018, you can be required to demonstrate the compliance of data you keep on file. Data is centralised and can be searched quickly for compliance needs when using DataSafe from Vantage IT.
Another great feature of DataSafe is that you can continue to work while the recovery completes in the background. This is unlike almost any other backup and recovery solutions available on the market.
Also available are bolt-on features such as Microsoft Office 365 cloud to cloud backup of your mailboxes. Microsoft does not back up your mailboxes, so should they lose your data, this would be permanent!
