Cloud Backups

Cloud backups powered by Redstor (formerly known as Attix 5) and using Global Sense’s cloud infrastructure, is a service offering from Global Sense Hosting which delivers a secure automated backup system for the data stored on company servers and desktops\laptops. It relieves overburdened IT staff from the chore of tape backup and manual offsite storage.

You can back up to a local server or use your Internet connection to Global Sense as the channel for backing up internal data. In this case, the storage servers are located on the Global Sense cloud infrastructure in secure, managed facilities and all data is encrypted before being sent.

The technology utilises a file-based backup solution that requires the installation of a small software agent onto your hardware.

Existing backup policies can be built into the agent using the integrated filters for inclusion, exclusion, open-file management and multiple scheduling. Thereafter the solution uses proprietary technology to backup only the changes to the remote storage server, effectively reducing data transfer volumes by as much as 98%. Secure encryption of all data ensures confidentiality.

BENEFITS & FEATURES:

  • Protects your intellectual capital: the solution allows you to effectively safeguard your information assets and your most valuable corporate asset – your data.
  • Intelligent and automated solution: the backup service is completely automated so users never need to remember to follow a manual backup process.
  • Advanced file-backup features: the software makes use of intelligent file selection to automatically protect important data. Open file management is used to protect locked files and databases.
  • Bandwidth efficient: makes use of bandwidth throttling and advanced scheduling to manage larger data transfers. Binary level incremental backup technology sends file changes only and thus dramatically reduces the bandwidth needed.
  • Restore files with ease: single- or multiple-file recovery can be performed instantly online. Built-in version control allows data to be recovered from any previously backed up state, allowing file and system rollbacks. The IT administrator can also restore files remotely by using remote restore commands.
  • Safe and secure: to ensure data privacy, the Attix5 Backup makes use of SSL encryption for data in transit. Data is also stored in an encrypted format (448 bit blowfish).
  • Supports most applications on common operating systems: the solution securely backs up most applications as well as open files and databases. For details please refer to the Attix5 website at wwww.attix5.co.za and view the documents under the download section for technical details.
