Imagine losing all of your data. Every. Single. File.
Unfortunately, it can and does happen. And when you rely on your data to run your business, data loss can have disastrous consequences.
At Empreus IT, we hate it when businesses have to go through stuff like that, and have made it our mission to find the best back up and disaster recovery solutions available.
- Veeam backups for small business
- Datto backups for enterprise
- All forms of cloud backup
Veeam is a low cost solution that is good for businesses that have a small number of staff, and don’t need an extensive back up system. For Veeam to work, you need to have a local storage solution (such as a server). Veeam duplicates all files on a regular basis to ensure you always have a second copy on hand, in case your hardware fails or your system is hit by a virus.
Unfortunately, Veeam cannot prevent backup files from getting encrypted by cryptoware, which does make it more vulnerable than Datto.
Datto is a premium solution that we recommend for any business that sees data as critical to its survival, and cannot afford any downtime if a disaster hits.
Datto is able to virtualise your hardware – so even if your server goes down or is affected by a virus, you can still access all of your files. If you get hit by cryptoware, we can turn off your server and rebuild it (or install a new one), and your data will sit in the cloud so you can continue working as though nothing has happened.
If you would prefer to backup all of your files in the cloud, we can help you set up a cloud backup solution that works properly and backs up your data securely.
100% cloud backups are not for everyone though, so we will walk you through the pros and cons so you can make an informed decision that’s right for you.
If you are in the middle of a disaster – your hardware has failed or you have been infected with a virus – we may be able to assist with disaster recovery.
We can run a tool that attempts to recover lost documents. Whether or not this is successful depends on what caused the problem in the first place.
In the case of cryptoware, we may be able to de-encrypt it. However this cannot be guaranteed, and is generally quite expensive.
Disaster recovery is definitely a case-by-case basis, but rest assured we will do everything we can to help you recover, and minimise the risk of it ever happening again.
