Managed Backups

A Managed backup is an important tool for business. Your business information is automatically backed up at predetermined times. So that you and your employees don’t have to remember to do it.  Your data would be backed up to a server or a cloud based storage facility. The idea being that if you suffer an event of data loss, you will be able to retrieve your data from another location. Managing backups for business is the cornerstone of our managed services offering.




Managed Backups, how?

1CS offers Managed Backups through one of our MSP backup software tools. In most instances, provided by way of an all in one subscription based software solution. Which simplifies the backup and recovery process. 1CS is able to deliver this service to physical, virtual or multi-site environments.

Central Management & Monitoring

Our MSP backup software tool provides for central management and monitoring services. An online control panel where we analyse and oversee the systematic saving of your business information. Without having all backup information in one place, one cannot effectively manage their backups. Organizations can define roles and setup users based on authority and location to access information and/or make changes.

Managed Backup Recovery Options

There are a variety of recovery and retrieval options. Including Bare Metal Restore where if you lose your entire system we can rebuild it from the ground up. And when systems fail, recovery speed is crucial. This is where our local speed vault comes in. When enabled, our backup and recovery software tool will automatically choose the location which is fastest to restore from.

There are other details we could elaborate on like True Delta Deduplication which captures byte-level information rather than a full set of data. Or the ability to backup documents on every single workstation rather than just backup a server and a few workstation. In fact there are many features which would make a computer technician excited.

Backup Support Basics

What is a Backup?

The copying and saving of data with the ability to restore it after an event of data loss is a backup.  Otherwise identified as the process of backing up. Backing up and transferring data represents a significant portion of the IT services we provide. 

Purpose of A Backup

The purposes of a backup is two-fold. The first is to recover data after its loss, loss either by corruption, deletion or some other means. The second purpose is to recover data from a previous date and time. Although backups commonly constitute a form of disaster recovery, alone, backups should not be considered “disaster recovery”.

Backup Maintenance & Support

Maintenance is the practice of keeping computers in a good state of repair. IT Support is the act of providing assistance to users of technology products such as computers. Therefore, Backup Maintenance and Support is the process of keeping backups well organized, situated and continuous. While dealing with any issues along the way.

Common Forms of Backup
  • USB Drive
  • External Hard Drive
  • The Cloud
  • Hosted Environment
  • Virtual Server

Many businesses are familiar with backing up files to a USB drive or using a cloud storage service. This would probably be done by dragging a file onto a USB drive, cloud file or through the use of automated backups from developers like EaseUs, where pre-selected files are chosen for automatic backup at pre-determined dates and times. Of course, it can more complicated, depending on the technology infrastructure of the business and the IT services being provided.
