Backup & Recovery
Relying on regular, manual backups leaves your data open to risk.
People make mistakes or can be distracted by other activities; tapes and disks can get lost or damaged, and it can be almost impossible to find specific files or applications when they're needed. And if your business is run from multiple sites, the problems are compounded.
Advantage:VAULT is an automated, online backup service that ensures business continuity by backing up all your data daily, without any interruption to your business. The service is cost effective as it allows you to store mission-critical data in a highly available environment for instant retrieval, but to keep less vital files in a lower-cost secure archive, from which it can still be restored more quickly than from tape.
How does it work?
Advantage:VAULT takes human error out of backup by providing you with managed, automated backups via the Internet. Data is backed up incrementally every day at a time to suit you and is stored in a secure, world-class data centre. You can restore lost or corrupted files quickly and easily should data loss occur. No more searching through racks of tapes—just select the file you want, and it can be restored in a matter of seconds via the Internet.
Advantage will work closely with your organisation to design a backup solution that meets your needs. You can choose to have instant, online access to mission-critical files, but reduce costs by archiving less important files in such a way that they can still be retrieved easily in the event of a disaster. Whichever solution you choose, your data is collected simultaneously from as many of your premises as you choose and you can scale the service to suit the changing needs of your business.
Advantage's solution has been designed to cater for virtualised environments too, offering native support for VMware.
As an operator of one of the largest online storage systems in the UK, you can rely on Advantage to protect your data. Advantage:VAULT is a fully automated and managed service, so you can focus on running your business knowing that your data stored on high-end storage arrays in secure, world-class data centres.
