Data continuity Assured and Secure
Backups protect against human errors, hardware failure, threat actor attacks, ransomware, power failure, application faults and natural disasters. Backups can help save time and money and enable organisations to recover quickly if these situations occur. Maintaining a regular backup schedule is vital to minimise the amount of data lost between backups. The more time between backups, the more potential for data loss when recovering from a backup.
This is where BTG’s Managed Backup solution steps in. Our Managed Backup solution is stored in our private cloud. This gives your data better security and increased flexibility, both with storage, volume and retention, and can be backed up offline to tape (air-gapped) protecting it from online attacks.
We manage the entire backup process end-to-end, meeting the 3-2-1 backup best practice. All backed-up data is stored in New Zealand, on independent infrastructure and in most cases, always written to air-gapped media which is part of cyber insurance requirements.
We provide three Managed Backups Solutions
MANAGED SERVICE BACKUPS
Nearly every business relies on digital information storage. In the event of an unforeseen circumstance, backups become vital to maintain uninterrupted business operations. This is precisely why BTG practices a disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) strategy. A backup is first stored on a disk, and then it is copied onto a magnetic tape for retention. This generates two backup copies: one on the disk medium and one on the tape medium.
We apply the Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) methodology for our tape backup. It may sound conservative practising an offsite tape storage today but it mitigates potential data loss or privacy breaches which businesses can also adapt to satisfy cyber insurance requirements.
Our approach involves:
Daily Cloud Data Centre Backups: Your production data is securely backed up every night to a secondary storage repository, minimising the risk of data loss and ensuring data availability.
30-Day Data Retention: We maintain a 30-day rotation of your backups on disk, ensuring that you have access to historical data when needed.
Weekly Tape Backups to Off-Site Storage: Weekly data backups are copied to tape and securely transferred to our off-site storage facility. This provides an extra layer of protection against unforeseen events.
Flexible Tape Retention Options: Choose from tape retention options that suit your business needs, including 3-month, 6-month, 1-year, and 7-year retention plans.
Customisable Backup Frequency: While daily server backups are standard, we offer higher frequency backup options to meet your specific requirements.
Data Restoration: Restoration occurs during work hours or, by agreement, after hours upon request. Data is restored from recent (within 30 days) or older backups, involving secure tape transport for added data security.
