Data Backup / Disaster Recovery

At DataTrust, our dedicated team of experienced technology consultants can provide cost effective Data Backup and Business Continuity Services for your organization. 

With our Secure Online Backup, your selected data is encrypted and compressed automatically, at predefined schedules and sent to our secure data centres in Dublin. There is no end user intervention required and assigned recipients receive an email report after each backup job. 

Doing test restores is simply a matter of a few mouse clicks!

Disaster Recovery

Data backup does not concern itself with how long it will take you to get your business processes back up and running in the event of a catastrophe. This is where our Disaster Recovery (DR) Service comes in.

As part of our recovery plan, DataTrust can implement continuous replication of existing key servers and workstations etc. into our datacentre ready to be "fired up" in the event of disaster. Replication can be as frequent as every 15 minutes and these full images can be retained indefinitely.

Tailored Disaster Recovery Solutions

Being sure that your data is safe and secure, in the event of disaster may not be enough to save your business from serious impact of the downtime. As a consequence, we work closely with our clients to draw up tailored disaster recovery (DR) / business continuity solutions.

Here at DataTrust, our dedicated team of experienced technology consultants provides a cost effective Data Backup and Business Continuity Service.

It is very likely that the only thing that is truly unique about your IT system is your data. Everything else, in the case of disaster, is recoverable independently. Also, downtime can be a significant concern - modern organisations will plan maximum downtime (Business Continuity Planning) as well as planning for protection of their data.

The case no longer has to be made for backing up data. Up until the late 90s; tape was, by far, the most popular way of achieving this. The two major weaknesses with tape were the instability of the media and the difficulty in doing test restores. Restores were so difficult to do, in fact, that there were hardly ever done.

Secure Online Backup

Secure online backup solved these shortfalls.  In 2005, when DataTrust commenced our secure online backup product - there was only one other online backup provider in Ireland. That provider is no longer in existence.

Disaster Recovery

The scope and concern of disaster recovery is much broader than data protection. Disaster recovery has to countenance all possible events that could interfere with normal operations e.g. hardware failure, natural disaster, security incidents etc. Depending on the requirements of the organisation, it may even be necessary to have infrastructure available, at an alternative location, to get back up and running as quickly as possible.

Disaster recovery efforts tend to be significantly more expensive to implement than data backup efforts. There is likely to be extensive analysis of existing processes etc. as well as multiple "dry run" tests. Disaster recovery plans are likely to include a broader scope of personnel than IT.

System Replication

Also, because the full system is being replicated, the end user does not have to worry about ensuring that all required folders are included in the backup - the machine as a whole is backed up!  Not individual folders…
