Remote Backup

Data failure can cripple a business if a backup plan is not in order. Unfortunately, even the best plans can fall if something happens on-site. That’s why we offer a remote backup solution. Don’t worry about natural disasters or faulty media anymore. No matter what happens, your data is stored safely off-site on our servers.

Why remotely back up my files?

Remote backup runs on a client computer as service and is based on a set of schedules or it can be run manually by the users from that computer. It can all your files and overwrites your existing ones or only those modified. It’s based on a client server architecture, meaning that there is a server process which runs on the server and its main task is to store you files on the server. The client will then upload files to teh server.

The Remote backup server differs from transferring your files to another computer via FTP or another service because it always keeps a log of your backup data for later retrieval. Remote backup can save the day in a number of situations.

  • 1. When creating a document, constant backup is important for saving small changes made gradually over time.
  • 2. The security and preservation of QuickBooks or other accounting files for your home or business are crucial to your financial well-being.
  • 3. Family genealogy, records, pictures, scanned items, adn everything else are precious files and should be safely and securely backed up somewhere other than just your home computer or hard disk backup.

Remote backup services can be particularly important for businesses where crucial data loss can be a major blow to client contact lists, financial information, sales data, or application critical information, etc. A remote backup service always remembers to backup your data and at any point your files can be recovered on your computer or on another, if the previous one crashed.

Upgrades

Just because a computer is old or broken doesn’t mean it’s worthless. Many times, it can be more cost effective to upgrade a component than buy a new computer. Upgrading your memory (RAM) can be one of the quickest ways to increase the speed of your computer. Years ago, 256MB – 512MB of RAM was more than enough for Windows XP to run well. Unfortunately, Windows 10 requires more memory and additional programs installed and upgraded. The amount of memory required is now considerably larger, causing your computer to outgrow it’s memory. We recommend no less than 4GB of RAM, preferably 8GB, for Windows 10. To find out how much memory you have, click on  my computer (or computer) and choose properties. There you’ll see the amount of RAM listed. If you have less than 4GB (1,000MB) of RAM, you should consider upgrading your RAM. The cost of adding 4GB of RAM is dependent upon the RAM type required by your system, but can be as low as $35 and seldom exceeds $75.
