Retriever Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) In-Depth
Retriever backup solutions ensure your vital information is always safe and secure, making the once painful chore of on and off-site data backup easy and reliable.
Small to medium businesses can suffer severe repercussions if their critical data is not securely backed up at an off-site location. A fire, power surge, hardware failure, or even basic operator error can wipe out years of data. According to IDC (a leading market research firm), less than 40% of all small to medium-sized businesses properly and regularly backup their data.
Off-site backup devices ensure that if physical disaster (fire, flood, theft, etc.) were to strike your data center and/or office, all lost information can be retrieved from the off-site location.
Businesses cannot afford to lose time attempting to rebuild their lost, vital information. With Retriever backup solutions, a new device can be overnight shipped to your location with all of your otherwise-lost data. This allows businesses to recover multiple terabytes of information in 24 hours, which would be nearly impossible through Internet transfer.
To quickly recover from hardware failures, viruses, or accidental deletion, it is important to have an on-site backup in addition to the off-site copy. This backup allows businesses to quickly recover from data loss due to common causes. When creating a business continuity plan, it’s important to take both on-site and off-site backup into consideration.
Affordable, Easy, Simple
When it comes to keeping your information backed up, Retriever offers an affordable and easy total solution. Retriever provides a simple, secure, and automatic method for both on-site and off-site data storage in one simple and easy to use device. Each Retriever solution is a specifically designed Network Attached Storage (NAS) device operating as a secure location to backup files. The device creates an encrypted copy of all files stored at the on-site location at dual secure data centers located on the east and west US coasts. In the event of accidental deletion, files can quickly be restored to the device. If the backup device is ever damaged or destroyed, a new device with all data and settings from the original unit is overnight shipped to your location, providing rapid recovery.
