Data Backups

Understanding remote and managed data backup services

data storage and other peripheralsIs your company actively backing up data every week? Month? How much is your company spending each month to internally maintain and manage data backups? A lot? You should know that there's a more cost-effective solution. Typically offered through the cloud, remote data backup services through Direct Networks protect data from disastrous events and provide a flexible option for data recovery and backup.

What is remote data backup?

Traditional data backup was typically handled on-premises by physically storing data copies on tape or disk drives. However, cloud-based solutions offer another way to store enterprise data and information. Online data backups can automate the process of saving data copies more quickly and on a larger scale.

With remote data backup, records are transferred over the internet either to a cloud-based solution or to a managed partner's data servers. The process typically occurs during periods of low network usage, such as overnight or on weekends. An automated, routine backup schedule ensures that there's a consistent approach to managing enterprise-wide information.

What is managed data backup?

In managed data backup our team will handle and manage data backup services rather than your company handling its own data on-premises. Direct Networks will permanently archive and retain data copies, and assist with restoring older data backups in the event of disaster recovery.

Additionally, your organization can choose a plan that meets existing needs with the ability to upgrade in the future- data backup services offer high levels of scalability.
