Remote Backup Features

Five Features of Remote Backup

Remote backup offers many features that aren’t available with any other type of backup solution:

  • Offsite Storage
  • Encrypted Data
  • Automatic Backups
  • Online Access
  • High storage capacity

Offsite Storage

Remote backup allows you to store your important data off-site at a remote location.  In plain English that means your data won’t be stored at your home or office.  Instead it will be stored at our secure data center located in Burnaby, BC.

External hard drives, flash memory and all other types of data backup are usually stored in the same location as the computer you are backing up.  While this system may protect you in the event that your hard drive crashes, it’s completely useless if something happens to your home or office.  When you store your data remotely, you will always have a backup copy no matter what happens to your computer or your office.

Encrypted Data

Remote backup works by sending your files to our data center over the internet.  But before your data is sent, it’s automatically encrypted using one of two encryption codes.  Once it’s encrypted, it gets sent to the data center and stays encrypted while it’s being stored.  Only when you enter your password is the data unencrypted.  This adds an extra level of security that isn’t available in any other backup solution.

Automatic Backups

When you first register for remote backup you will get to choose when and how often you’d like your backups to occur.  Depending on your needs you can choose to backup your files as soon as they are modified, every hour or only once a day.  After that, your work is done.  Backups will occur automatically at the scheduled times.  You’ll never have to worry about forgetting to backup your data again.  Nothing could be easier.

Online Access

With remote backup you can access your files from any computer that has an internet connection.  It doesn’t matter where you are: at your home computer or at an internet café. As long as there’s an internet connection, you have 24-hour access to your data.  Simply login to your account and you have instant access.  It doesn’t even require downloading any software.

High Storage Capacity

Most backup storage devices have a limited amount of space available.  Once that space is used up, that’s it; you have to buy another device.  That’s not the case with remote backup.  Remote backup allows you plenty of room to grow.  And since you only pay for the storage space you use, you can expand your storage capacity as your company grows.
