Cloud Backup

The onset of Covid-19, and organisations’ ability to move to home working, has highlighted the technological progress companies have made in recent years.

However, having data in Cloud storage – such as OneDrive, Dropbox etc. – doesn’t make it invincible. Many people believe that because it’s accessible on many devices, the data is safe and ‘backed up’ to multiple machines. This isn’t true. It’s accessible on many different machines but it only lives in one place – the Cloud. Our reliance on Exchange, OneDrive and SharePoint in particular for day to day business, now means that backing up your Cloud based data is as important as backing up your physical machines.

Redstor is a complete data management tool that includes backup, archiving, and disaster recovery. Today we’re going to be focussing on Redstor Cloud to Cloud which allows the backup and recovery of your Office 365 data.

You can choose to backup your OneDrive, SharePoint, and Exchange Online data. It’s the same process for all three, so we’re going to focus just on OneDrive for ease.

Redstor has an easy to use management portal that allows you to backup, manage, and restore data easily. Administrators choose how often the OneDrive data needs to be backed up and when – twice a day at 9am and 3pm for example. Once this has been set it runs seamlessly in the background without user intervention or interruption. You can also run manual backups in addition to the scheduled backups.

The same easy to use management portal is used for restoration as well. It allows you to restore your data quickly and easily using InstantData. You’d simply select the OneDrive option, as an example, then select which backup you want to restore from and where it should be restored back to. Redstor allows restoration to somewhere that isn’t where the data resided originally, meaning the restored data won’t override or duplicate the original if you don’t want it to. This means minimal interruption and allows you to continue to do the work that’s important to you and your business.

Redstor Cloud to Cloud is a security measure to protect your business data, so the security measures within the system are also important. So, your data is backed up to two secure UK based datacentres, and uses military grade encryption at all points of the process – at source, in transit, and at rest – to keep it safe. Your data is only accessible with your encryption key, so nobody (not even our staff) can access your data. You’re able to choose your own retention period within the management portal to suit your business needs, meet any overarching retention requirements, and ensure absolute security.

Redstor Cloud to Cloud backup is an essential strand of your data management solution. It will ensure that all your data – local or Cloud based – is protected as part of a comprehensive and unified solution, regardless of whether you’re organisation is working out the office, on the road, or from home.
