Scenario #1: You run a small business and you back up your data on Zip disks. You hoard those disks in a storage cabinet out in the hall. Everything's running smoothly until a raging fire rips through your building and the storage cabinet tumbles into the fiery depths of the tragedy. Where's your data now?
Scenario #2: Your tapes are picked up by a local courier who mistakenly drops the package of tapes and your data is now lost and potentially vulnerable.
Scenario #3: Your business is broken into. You find your laptops and other valuable computers are stolen. Your data is lost.
Disaster strikes in many forms. Businesses that depend heavily on computer data are especially vulnerable. Our remote backup service keeps your data offsite and runs automatically in the background of your computer system.
A recent study discloses it takes 19 days and cost in excess $17,000 to re-enter just 20 megabytes worth of sales and marketing data. Retrieving accounting records is even worse; they require over 21 days of work and cost over $19,000 to re-type. For many businesses, this kind of cost can close your doors. Dr Data ™ backup service can keep these extreme expenses from hitting your company!

Using your internet connection our Dr Data ™ software will backup your files to our off-site data storage facility. Every night, your critical files are gathered up, encrypted with an encryption code that only you have, the files are then compressed and then the software calls our off-site data storage facility and transmits the data securely. Your files cannot be seen or accessed by anyone in any way except you! At 8 A.M. every morning, we perform a backup to our tape libraries. At that point the tapes are sent to our other offsite facility where the tapes are stored in a fire-safe Datavault.
Most small businesses don't have a backup plan that fully protects them.
Don't become a statistic! Let us help you protect your most valuable asset, your computer data! Without the high overhead Dr Data ™ is able to provide quick on-demand Disaster Recovery Solutions without the high overhead and costs associated with other backup solutions.
Most fortune 500 companies use the same basic techniques to protect their data:
- All their systems are completely automated
- The data is copied to a central location
- Highly skilled technicians implement and monitor the process
In the middle of 1999, Dr Data ™ , a leading backup solutions company, released a remote online backup system that would allow its customers to set up a centralized backup server so that its customers could lease a highly effective backup system with no overhead.
The advantages to a typical business are enormous:
- All files are protected by state of the art encryption, only the customer can retrieve their files
- Completely automated off-site protection
- Fast online recovery of any version of any protected file
- Easy installation and setup
- Only an internet connection is required, eliminating the need for expensive backup equipment and media
- The backup server is monitored by highly skilled technicians whose only job is to make sure the backups are performed properly.
This is how it works....
We operate an off-site storage facility for the user's data. At the facility, an account is maintained for each user. Each account is protected by a password known only to the user!
The electronic vault system is set up so that at a preset time, usually late at night the clients computer automatically wakes up and prepares its data for backup, it determines which files have been modified since the last backup, compresses them, encrypts them for security. When the data is ready the computer uses its modem or Internet connection to contact our Servers and transmit the data.
Our Servers verify/store the data and send a confirmation email to the user. The next morning the backup is transferred to tape and placed in a fireproof safe for permanent safe keeping. They can rest assured that their data is safe, because it is stored off-site.
