Transfer copies of your data outside
your premises using a simple Internet connection and store
them, encrypted, in a totally secure Data Center, without
any modification of your IT systems.
• DS-Client, Discovery & Configuration:
The Data-Store Client (DS-Client) is the only software that
has to be installed on a server at the Customer site. After
the initial Discovery Process is completed, Files, Databases
Mailboxes and Data to be backed up are selected and the
backup methodology and scheduling are defined.
• Agentless Solution: The process does
not require any agent to be installed into the backed up
systems (Desktops, Laptops, Physical and Virtual Servers,
Application / Database Servers). Updating the DS-Client
with newer versions of the agents is done automatically
by the Data-Center.
• Disk-to-Disk Backup & Restore: Data
can be sent directly to the Data-Center, or can be stored
locally on the DS-Client Server and then transferred to
the Data Center.
• Backup & Restore over Internet: At
the start-up of the service, the initial data are sent to
the Data-Center using physical media. After that, the process
is transferring only the changes of the data. By using Deduplication,
Compression and Bandwidth Optimization technologies the
backup process is therefore quick, absolutely safe and feasible
even over bad lines or lines with small bandwidth.
• Data Integrity & High Availability:
Repeated checks during the transfer process ensure the integrity
of the stored data, with auto alerting in case of error.
Data are stored on clustered and redundant Storages at the
Data-Center. Additionally, the data are also replicated
at the Data-Center’s Disaster Recovery Site (a 2nd similar
Data-Center, established in Greece, too).
• Encryption & Security: Data are always
encrypted (during transfer to the Data-Center and while
are stored there). The system provides up to 256 AES encryption,
(FIPS 140-2 certified) and only the customer knows
• 24x7x356 Support: In case of a data loss
at the customer site, if the require data are not present
on the local DS-Client Server or the restore time over Internet
exceeds the pre-agreed time (SLA), the data are sent to
the Customer by physical media. Data Center also provides
additional information (Status Report), such as start and
end backup time, lists of stored data, etc.
