Data Backup & Recovery

Data Backup Solutions

Protect, manage and access your data more efficiently

In today's networked environment, data and application availability are critical for the continued operation of every business. Network downtime can extract high costs from your business in both time and money. Yet recent research has found that far too few businesses have an IT disaster recovery plan to cope with an emergency such as fire, natural disaster or power loss.

An individually tailored IT disaster recovery plan from Your PCMD, designed to your specifications and budget, gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your business is protected against the data loss that unforeseen outages can cause.

We utilize market-leading vendors to ensure we are providing the best possible options for your business. Before recommending any solution, we work closely with you to understand your IT environment, business drivers, current capabilities, limitations and budget.

The most common reasons a business owner loses their data are:

  • Disgruntled staff member deletes data or does not return a company laptop
  • Hardware failure (hard drives do fail)
  • Irregular manual backup – when was the last time you or your staff backed up?
  • Unchecked automated backup – what is it backing up and did it actually complete the backup?
  • Virus corruption
  • Accidental file deletion
  • Fire or other natural disaster, theft, lost or stolen computers

Look at it like automotive or house insurance... hopefully you will never need it.

We utilize backup solutions ranging from an on-site local NAS device to cloud storage or any combination thereof. In any setup, backup is fully automated; it protects your data on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. Whatever your businesses needs are. A small piece of software is installed on your device; this allows you to select the files that you want to backup and the frequency of backup. The software can also encrypt your files to be backed up and then they are sent to the solution you have choosen.
