Backup services

We offer a convenient, cost-effective way to back up and recover your server data. Once configured, the software will automatically back up your system to a central, secure storage facility at a specified time each day. For increased security, additional copies are stored offsite on encrypted media.

Our Backup service is available for the low rate of $0.14 per GB per month. Charges are assessed based on the amount of data backed up. The service protects your system from data loss due to accidental file deletion or corruption, hard drive failure, or system upgrade.
