Server Backup and Recovery

  • All of your organization’s data residing on servers (your organization’s or ours) is backed up to a secure offsite facility, eliminating costly maintenance and upkeep and ensuring your data is secure and easily accessible when needed.
  • We perform server backups automatically and regularly and store them on a fault tolerant, expandable storage area network (featuring RAID 5 disk array with hot swappable spare drives).
  • You are quickly notified if there’s a server data backup failure for any reason. If you’ve engaged us to provide recovery services, we will manage the entire recovery process for you. If you’ve selected a services plan where you control recovery, you have access to our experienced team of engineers during the entire process, including installation, failed data backups, data restoration.

Backups are encrypted, using government-level 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and stored in the mindSHIFT data centers, so you know they're secure and always available.
