Remote Backups work like regular tape backups, with one important difference. Instead of sending backups to a tape drive or other media attached to the computer it is backing up, a Remote Backup encrypts, compresses, and transfers the files through the internet to server safely off-site. It does this (usually) at night while the business is closed and nobody is using the computers. It’s completely automatic.
We feel that it is absolutely essential that every individual computer maintains some kind of data backup strategy set up. Companies must have all business records as well as other crucial data backed up, at the very least, once each day. Home PC users should backup their valuable computer files like movies, photographs, audio files, etc. The more frequently your computer data is modified, the more frequently it should be backed up.
How much does it cost?
That depends on the ammount of data you are backing up. The backup software typically will compress to 1/2 a files original size. Plans to protect your data start at the low price of $10.00 a month for up to 20 gigabytes of data. Each additional GB is 50 cents more per month.
