Our backup software backs up your server in real time, as soon as a new file is created on the server or a file is modified our backup software automatically backs it up. If the internet connection is lost and the backup cannot complete, it will automatically carry on from where it left off when the internet connection comes back online.
Access to Backups
Only Synergy-UK It technicians have access to your backups, and our technicians will not access your backups without instruction from yourselves. Your backups will only be accessed in the event of data loss or corruption when data needs to be restored.
Restoring Backups in a Timely Manner
As your server is backed up to our premises and we are only located a few minutes away we are able to copy to backups to a new hard drive and bring them back to you the same working day.
Testing of your backup and disaster recovery solution
Our backup system notifies us via email if the backup fails. We also check the integrity of the backups manually once each month. In the event of the backup failing we will immediately take a look at the backup system and resolve the issues.
Your server backs up to our offsite backup server using a professional 3rd party backup program called Syncovery. The software is designed for backing up servers. Our backup server is locked down to your broadband static IP address so only your server is able to communicate with our sever all other requests from the internet will be ignored. Your data is encrypted and the SSH account used to security connect your server to ours is protected with a secure username and password.
