What if we already have a backup system?

Even if you are currently backing up to tape, zip disk, CD-RW, or other form of media, more than likely, the process is not completely automated. An employee must change out the media periodically and manually verify that completed backups are successful. Our online backup system bypasses this tedious process. Backups are 100% automated, and backup reports are sent by email daily. At any time, you can retrieve or verify your files on our server from virtually any location in the world!


Onsite backup systems cannot provide adequate protection against theft, fire, or any other form of local system failure. As they say, it's best not to have all your eggs in one basket. We recommend using our services in addition to any local backup mechanisms you have in place already.
