The process of making a copy of selected files stored on any computer or server and then storing that copy on separate media in a secure location for use when recovery is required due to damage or loss of the primary files.
QUIK IT Dept. offers enterprise level remote backup and recovery service. This service includes a software application installed on each computer or server. Off-site backup is the most reliable method to assure recovery from a data loss event.
The cost for remote backup service involves a monthly fee based on the total amount of data stored on remote servers for your account.
The entry level account allows 20 GB of stored data with a fee of $19.99 per month.
On-site backup ranges from use of single flash drives to external hard drives to elaborate NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices.
Lower cost local backup requires human monitoring and intervention to assure that data is actually captured. The rotation and transport of copies to off site secure locations is also labor dependent.
Higher cost systems are useful for large data sets. They are typically used to hold both critical and secondary value data because they do not require recurring monthly cost associated with remote data storage. They do not offer protection against fire, theft, or natural disaster at the business location. For this reason, the NAS is often used along with remote backup for critical data needed for business operations.
QUIK IT Dept. offers a variety of local backup solutions including on-site installation.
When lost data is available from backup systems
QUIK technicians are available to perform repairs responsible for the data loss event and then locate and install the lost data. The source of the backup may be any local or remote system provided by QUIK or others. This is considered a maintenance repair project and subject to standard shop or on-site service fees.
When lost data is not available from backup
QUIK offers specialized services to recover data from failed hard drives or deletion by system users. Successful data recovery is possible in many cases. The chances of recovery are improved when the computer involved is available for data recovery immediately after the data loss is discovered. Failed attempts at recovery may decrease the chance of success.
