Enterprise Data Protection Strategies
Affordable, Customized Backup Solutions
Discover the power of modern, next generation backup and recovery solutions and see why The Go2IT Group is at the forefront of IT delivery. Affordable data backup solutions designed exclusively for your environment provide both local backup sets along with several options for offsite data replication including online backup, de-duplication and continuous data protection.
Secure, Online Backup
The Go2IT Online Backup solution couples a world-class, feature rich remote backup product with unparalleled service and support. Your data is backed up to highly secure SAS-70 Type II compliant data centers. All data transmitted to and from your computer is delivered over a secure connection. Furthermore, all of your data is encrypted prior to transmission and never again decrypted until restored on your computer. Both the encryption and decryption process take place with digital keys unique to your backup account.
The backup performance and integrity monitoring feature of Go2IT's Online Backup solution generates a comprehensive integrity report that highlights any files that were recently generated or modified, but not backed up. This report is regularly reviewed by trained technicians so that corrections to your backup schedule can be made if needed.
The Go2IT Group's online data backup is housed in a SAS 70 Type II data center. It maintains a tight multi-layered security system including electronic motion sensors, providing continuous interior and exterior observation and 30-day retained storage of video surveillance. The building's single entry point is outfitted with sophisticated security sensors, vandal-resistant and bullet-proof glass, full biometric hand scanning and CircleLock mantraps. Armed guards monitor the data center 24/7/365.
Disk-Based Backup - Backup to Disk
Affordable, scalable, flexible backup at the speed of disk. When you need disk-based backup and recovery that provides unparalled performance and unmatched support for growth but doesn't break the bank or your IT budget. Disk-based backup solutions can be deployed as VTL (Virtual Tape Libraries), Virtual Tape Drives or disk volumes and can scale from 12TB to 240TB making it ideal for any sized business. With DVT (Dynamic Virtual Tape), users can create virtual tape cartridges that automatically expand or shrink as needed to match the exact capacity requirements of the backup operation.
Additionally, Backup to Disk solutions improve the protection of critical business data from applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, SAP and others.
Disk-based backup seamlessly integrates with standard Windows-based backup software to enable cost-efficient long term retention on disk and more reliable, high-speed recoveries of backup data.
Never backup the same data twice. Data de-duplication eliminates redundant data backups that have plagued businesses for decades by reducing or eliminating more than 75% of the back-end storage requirements.
With data de-duplication, redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique data copy allowing only 1 unique instance of the data to actually be retained. Data de-duplication operates at both the file and block levels and uses disk space more efficiently, allowing for longer disk retention periods with lower storage space requirements.
Continuous Data Protection - Real-time Backup
Continuous Data Protection, also known as real-time backup, provides any point-in-time recovery capabilities mitigating data loss. Recovering instantly to a prior consistent point-in-time snapshot provided by CDP helps you meet recovery requirements and business compliancy more efficiently and with greater speeds. Continous Data Protection (CDP) can be implemented in a variety of ways and with unmatched flexibility.
CDP continuously monitors and automatically creates a backup snapshot every time a change is detected and no user intervention or manual backup tasks are required. CDP offers exceptional disaster recovery features by utilizing site-to-site backup strategies that create exact data replicas across mutliple locations.
Continuous Data Protection also has the ability to utilize de-duplication by preserving each backup chronologically and excluding duplicate data.
