Archiving Services FAQ

Why Use The DataBackup Archiving Service?

The DataBackup Archiving Service has been developed to make it easy to retrieve archaic data, should you need it for any reason. Once transferred to our secure hosting servers, your data is indexed in a way that makes search and retrieval simple. For you, the advantages are immediate. Your systems become faster and less prone to crashes and failure, yet your data is still easily accessible.

Whether you need to keep old data and files for business use or legal compliance, with the DataBackup Archiving Service, you’re covered. And, the DataBackup Archiving Service has been developed to complement the DataBackup Online Backup System seamlessly. So, together, they make an unbeatable secure data storage solution for your business.

How secure is the DataBackup Archiving Service?

As with DataBackup Online Backup, your data is encrypted before it even leaves your site using military grade encryption algorithms and transferred to our ISO27001-certified secure data centres over a 256-bit SSL secure connection. In a word, our system is ironclad. Data restoration can only be achieved using your Internet connection and only to IP addresses designated by you.

How easy is DataBackup Archiving to implement and use?

If you do have any problems, we provide full technical support around the clock, 365 days per year.

What about email archiving?

We understand email applications are some of the first to suffer when too much data in the form of emails or other information is stored. DataBackup’s Archiving Service has been designed to work with most email applications, including Microsoft Exchange, Novell Groupwise, Kerio Mailserver, Lotus Notes, Lotus Live iNotes, VMware Zimbra, Gmail.

By archiving your older emails and data on our servers, you can significantly speed up email across your organisation, yet still have archaic data instantly available should you need it. The information is all held in a searchable database that makes it easy to find what you’re looking for from thousands of megabytes of information in seconds.

Where is my data stored?

DataBackup has six data centres: Dublin, Ireland; Wrexham and Cardiff in the UK; Tours and Lyons, France. Normally, your data is stored in the country of origin unless you give us permission to do otherwise (for example, if your business operates out of several jurisdictions).

What gets archived?

Specifically, what you tell us to archive! For example, if you tell us you want to archive all unmodified data more than a year old, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Of course, you can also add parameters to filter out data you want to keep, such as older email items or other specific file types.

What happens if I’ve a huge amount of data to archive?

If you have a lot of data (in excess of 300GB) it makes sense to do the initial archiving operation onsite and then transport the data to us on removable media. We recommend backing up all data before performing this operation using DataBackup Online Backup.

What happens if I cancel my subscription?

If, for any reason, you wish to cancel your subscription to the DataBackup Archiving Service, we will simply export your archived data back to you.

Testimonials

I overlooked backing up my files for a long time, like many others, until my hard drive crashed one day and all my data was lost. Luckily, on this instance we were able to recover all but at a cost of several 1000's. We then backed up on tapes and CD's but this was proving very hard in order to keep an offsite backup up to date. For some times now we have swapped to remote online backup with DataBackup. It was easy to set up and all four computers are automatically backed up every night for us. I just get an email every morning with a report letting me know that all my files are backed up. Worth every penny!
