What is a data backup service? Our data backup service runs at the scheduled time each day, or however often you would like it to run. This service takes a copy off all of the files chosen for backup and saves them into the cloud. The cloud is HIPAA compliant and secure, and if you would like more security you can encrypt your stored data as well. The only way you would then be able to restore your data is to know the key you chose for encryption – there is no way to recover files from a forgotten key.
The service we use has no single point of failure and has redundant servers running so if something happens, you will still be able to get your data back.
This service is great for backing up your work or personal documents and important records. We have used this service for a few years now, and have had to use it to recover some files from disasters a few times now, and everything works great.

When signing up and trying to decide how much storage space you should have, you can use the following rule of thumb…take the total storage you will need, and multiply it times the number or revisions you would like. Lets say you have 3.4GB of data you want backed up, and you would like 3 revisions, then you would take 3.4 * 3 = 10.2GB used space, and also make sure to allow enough extra storage for when your files are growing. I would always keep 25-50% additional space to be safe. If you see you are getting close to your limit, then give us a call or send us an email asking for more storage. We also keep an eye on this and adjust the space as the limits get close.
