VCS Online Backup
Intuitive Online Data Backup
VCS Remote Backup is a multifaceted, business grade backup solution, designed to protect mission critical data from permanent loss. Our software/service is designed from the ground up by VCS Data Services engineers with insight provided by tens of thousands of data recovery cases and backup failures through seen by VCS's data recovery service. Every aspect of fault tolerance has been thoughtfully addressed with this best of breed solution with features and services not found in other provider's offerings.
With our roots firmly planted in the data recovery industry, VCS Data Services has a unique understanding of the problems associated with many data backup solutions. For example, many people back their data up to either the same computer or the same physical location. Data backed up in this manner is subject to loss due to fire, flooding, earthquakes, electrical surges or even computer viruses. Data lost due to these factors is often gone forever with no chance for data recovery.
Furthermore, with a recent surge in computer related thefts and employee sabotage, critical data can be stolen or destroyed with no chance of retrieval. In these instances where critical data cannot be retrieved, the continuity of an organization can be significantly and irreparably impacted.
These are just a few of the many problems that businesses face when protecting their data. VCS Data Recovery has listened to thousands of data loss horror stories. VCS Data Services used this information to build a superior backup tool.
Windows Integrated User Interface
VCS Remote Backup is integrated directly with Microsoft Windows, utilizing familiar environments, such as My Computer and Windows Explorer. The service is intuitively easy to use and fully automated. As soon as you power on your machine, VCS Remote Backup has you protected.
In addition to the remote backup, the software can be configured to keep a local copy of mission critical data. In the event of a non-catastrophic failure, data can be restored instantly with the redundant copy of data stored locally on a designated path.
Data Backup Auditing
VCS Data Services goes the extra mile to ensure critical data is being backed up. Audit files and backup logs are reviewed periodically and cross-referenced against the data currently selected for backup. Any discrepancies are discussed with the client and the appropriate changes to his or her backup schedule are made.
Initial Backup of Large Data Sets
In certain situations, the initial backup of a large data set over the Internet is too long to make remote backup practical. To address this problem, VCS Remote Backup provides a seed backup service that allows data to be backed up to a local hard-drive and then shipped to VCS Data Services where it will be imported into the backup servers. After the seed backup set is imported, the client's machine will begin backing up changed data files over the Internet. Seed backups are available for an additional fee.
World-Class Customer Support
VCS Data Services takes great pride in providing best-in-class customer support for our clients. Our North American technical support team is located at our corporate headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. When a data crisis occurs, a VCS Data Services technical support representative is only a phone call away.
Restoration of Large Data Sets
If a client's system fails and a large amount of data needs to be restored quickly, a copy of the client's backup set can be shipped on an external hard-drive to expedite recovery of very large data sets. Charges and processing time for this service vary depending on the amount of data to be transferred. Individual files and folders can be restored online while waiting for the external hard-drive to arrive.
Automated Backup Scheduling
Backups are initiated automatically. The user determines what files, folders, and file types to back up and how often backups occur. VCS Remote Backup does the rest.
The user determines how many revisions of each file to store on VCS Data Services servers.
Differential Data Backup
After the initial backup of a file, only the changes made to that file are sent to VCS's servers for backup. This significantly reduces the amount of data that has to be transmitted over the Internet, preserving your bandwidth for other uses. What's more, depending on your needs, VCS Remote Backup can be configured to utilize different variations of the differential feature, either a light weight algorithm or in tandem with the local copy feature.
Data is encrypted prior to transmission and remains encrypted while on VCS Data Services backup servers.
