Our cloud storage solution is an easy to use, secure and flexible service backed by Amazon.com and Backblaze. In its most basic form, you are provided with a cloud storage location, allowing you to backup and restore your files from anywhere in the world.
Our most popular solution is based on MSP360. MSP360 Managed Backup is an easy-to-use solution with centralized management, monitoring, and reporting. The platform is natively integrated with all major public cloud services to enable best-in-class data protection for Windows, Linux, macOS, VMware, Hyper-V, Microsoft 365, and Google Workspace.
For a backup to be worthwhile, it needs to be kept off site. Otherwise, your backups are at risk of loss or damage caused by fire, flood or theft. Backup tapes are expensive (as are backup drives) and need to be changed regularly. External hard drives while cheap, are just as much at risk of failure as a server. In both instances, the logistics of storing the data off site is complicated. For instance, the off-site storage location should be fire safe and otherwise secure.
Online backups eliminate the headaches of traditional backup methods. Files are encrypted and stored securely on an external server, either with Amazon or Backblaze for UK/EU data.
The monthly charge for this service is from just £10 per machine. There is no setup fee, and you can (at your request) be emailed regularly with the status of your backup.
Storage space is charged depending on the volume of data backed up, with prices from 1p/GB.
Most businesses choose to backup their main file server, and ensure that all critical business data is stored there, rather than on desktop PCs.
Please be aware that the first backup can take a significant amount of time to complete. This is dependant on your internet connection. Usually we will highlight the most important files first and then cascade down until all files on the server are being backed up.
Subsequent backup times are dependant on the amount of data uploaded, but typically take 30m-1hr to complete. These daily backups are usually run at 1am when nobody is accessing the server, or using your internet connection.
