Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.

What is a Data Backup?

A backup is a copy of data that can be used to restore the original in the event that your data is lost or damaged. If a company experiences data loss due to hardware failure, human error or natural disaster, a backup can be used to quickly restore that data. 

Backup Software

Backup software are computer programs used to perform a backup; they create supplementary exact copies of files, databases or entire computers. These programs may later use the supplementary copies to restore the original contents in the event of data loss.

End points backup

Endpoint backup solutions transmit information to data-centres for safekeeping, while it also remains accessible to end users. Instead of backing up data to an external hard drive or tape storage, Endpoint backup sends data to a secure offsite facility. This ensures that the data is protected from an accident or disaster.

Mobile device management (MDM)

MDM or Mobile Device Management is a software application used for managing endpoints such as laptops, smartphones, tablets etc, in an enterprise. With more and more employees using one or all these devices, organizations are now turning to mobile device management for enhanced data security and improved productivity.

Backup On-premise and Cloud

On-premise backups are susceptible to vulnerabilities including physical damage such as fires or water damage, to administrative errors and even theft. 

Cloud backups help mitigate these disasters as they are stored in data centres that mostly have redundancy built in.

Email Archival & SAAS Backup

Email Archival are designed to facilitate the quick recovery of email files that may not be readily available due to an unexpected data loss. Data loss can include; accidental deletion of critical email files, a ransomware attack or losing access to emails due to accident, theft, or sabotage. With email archival, users can typically select a point in time and restore a copy of any email or a group of emails from a specific backup snapshot.

SaaS Backup With the popularity of Office 365, and other SaaS based email backups performed in the cloud. The SaaS based cloud backup is generally faster, cheaper, and more scalable to meet the changing needs of businesses. 

Tape / auto loader/MSL library

In computer storage, a tape library, is a storage device that contains one or more tape drives, a number of slots to hold tape cartridges, a barcode reader to identify tape cartridges and an automated method for loading tapes (a robot). Additionally, the area where tapes that are NOT currently in a silo are stored is also called a tape library. Tape libraries can contain millions of tapes.

Smaller tape libraries with only one drive are known as autoloaders. The term autoloader is also sometimes used synonymously with stacker, a device in which the media are loaded necessarily in a sequential manner.

Backup Appliances

Backup appliance is a type of data storage device / equipment that accumulates the backup software and hardware components within a single device. It is a type of turnkey and all-inclusive backup solution that provides a central interface for backup processes, tools and infrastructure.

What is an Archive?

An archive is a collection of historical records that are kept for long-term retention and used for future reference. Typically, archives contain data that is not actively used. Basically, a backup is a copy of a set of data, while an archive holds original data that has been removed from its original location. Archival backup is a type of data backup in which all files are copied to a backup storage device. Archival backups are also called full backup. Contrast with incremental backups, in which only modified files are copied

Physical Server Infra backup

A traditional physical server infra backup works on the concept of installing a backup agent on each host, performing an initial full backup over the network and then on subsequent nights backing up just the files that were changed.

Virtual server infra backup

Virtual Infra-specific backup products which interface directly with the virtualization platform and capture point-in-time snapshots of the entire virtual machine state address the issue of resource contention.
