iPower Managed Backup & Virtual Disaster Recovery

iPower's managed backup service is an application-aware, disk-based imaging solution that automatically and continuously images your entire Windows application server delivering accelerated application backups and Managed Backup and Virtual Disaster Recoverydisaster recovery for Windows servers in minutes. Our backup solutions are designed to protect the applications, not just the data. We can deliver high-value features for reliable data protection that is corruption-free. As a result, customers can have the confidence that their Windows applications are completely protected and easily recoverable in the event of data loss or disaster.

Traditional backup and recovery technologies limit organizations to once-daily backups that can take hours to complete (often all night), and hours to restore in the event of a server failure. This process leaves organizations exposed to the loss of up to 24 hours of data and as much as a full day’s loss of productivity while the recovery takes place. In contrast, iPower backup solution completely eliminates the backup window, reduces the amount of time since the last backup to just 15 minutes, and enables organizations to restore lost data in as little as five minutes.

In addition, our backup includes intelligent technology to de-duplicate data, avoiding the need to backup and recover duplicate copies of files or other data assets, requiring up to 80% less storage space to perform backups – and saving organizations tens of thousands of dollars in data storage costs. What’s more, this software enables users to remain productive during a live recovery, eliminating the proverbial “down time” that traditional backup and recovery tools require when restoring data after a server failure or disaster. This includes e-mail, databases, Microsoft SharePoint servers, and virtual servers alike. Companies typically experience a 5x Return on Investment using our backup as an alternative to their traditional backup and disaster recovery products.

  • Eliminates the backup window

Top 10 Reasons for Managed Off-Site Backup and Recovery

Most Daily Backups Can Not Be Restored

Most Daily Backups Cannot Be RestoredStorage Magazine revealed that nearly 34 percent of businesses do not test their backups regularly; and of the businesses that did, 77 percent found they were unable to fully recover data from those tapes. This study shows that there is a high likelihood that, at any given time, the data you can restore from tape could be many days, or even weeks old, or it may not be able to be restored at all. How many days of lost information is your business able to tolerate?

Automatic Off-Site Data Protection

Let’s assume for a moment that you are among the 23% that did everything correctly. Then, you arrive at work in the morning to find that a pipe burst and flooded your office and the server, tapes, and other backup media is ruined. Or let’s say there is a fire; or vandalism; or a rogue employee. Your backup strategy is no longer valid.

Secure Off-Site Transit and Storage

So now you decide to mitigate the risk in reason #2 by sending tapes off-site. You assign your secretary or perhaps a data service the task of taking tapes off-site for storage. Then while they stop for groceries on the way home, their car is broken into, and the tapes are stolen. At the very least, your backups are gone. Worst case, the person that stole the backup is able to do an off-line restore and your private information is now public. Our Managed Off-Site Backup Service utilizes the highest levels of encryption, and no backup media ever leaves your location.

Fast, Reliable, Remote Recovery

Backing up data to tape can be a complex, manual, error-prone process. There are risks at every step, including configuring the software, backup rotation errors, running the backup itself, labeling and cataloging tapes and moving the tapes off-site, and maintaining all tapes in the sequence. Should data need to be restored from tape, the tapes need to be located and the data stored on them recovered in the reverse order. A recent study by Iron Mountain revealed that nearly 50 percent of tape backups are mis-configured. And, the Gartner Group has reported that 40 percent of business data is not properly backed up each night. Our data recovery process is fast, intuitive, and available remotely.

No Equipment to Buy, Lease or Operate.

First, there’s a lot of equipment to purchase or lease, including tape drives, tapes, backup software, plug-ins, open file managers; and perhaps maintenance contracts or off-site storage services. Even after initial set-up, tape backup still costs your company. Additional expenses are incurred as you replace worn tapes, rotate media off site, repair or replace tape drives and auto loaders. One such device can easily run into multiple thousands of dollars. Even when this process goes smoothly, rotating and labeling tapes and performing backups is a time consuming, mundane task that adds nothing to your bottom line. With Cooperative Systems NOAH Backup Service, there is nothing to buy, and once configured on your server, you never have to worry about backups again.

Around the Clock Expert Management

When it comes to your valuable data, you cannot afford to leave things to chance. At Cooperative Systems, your information will be stored in encrypted form on highly redundant servers in a climate controlled area. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. In the event of problems with your backup process, we will notify you proactively, providing that extra assurance so you know your backup is being performed correctly. 

Immediate Remote Restore

We understand that you rely on your electronic data. Company records, payroll, email and other important documents all reside on your server. In the event of a disaster, you shouldn’t have to wait for hours or days to recover your data, as is many times the case with tape-based media and off-site storage. If you have to rebuild a server and restore data, it can easily take several days. With Cooperative Systems NOAH Backup Service, we can perform a “bare metal restore” based on your server image, and in most cases have you back up in a matter of hours, rather than days. 

Regulatory Compliance

Keeping up with all the industry regulations like HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, and other data security rules and regulations can be a time consuming and risk laden process. You need to consider whether your tape backup processes are in compliance with all of these requirements as well as other state and federal regulations. These types of security rules and regulations typically provide that you must implement administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your electronic information. With Cooperative Systems NOAH Backup Service your data is encrypted, and is sent to our remote secure site and stored in encrypted form. Only you have access to your information on our Servers. 

Free Up Your Time

When you use tape media, backup and recovery can be a time-consuming, tedious chore. First, you need to perform the backup every evening and very often over the weekend. In addition, you need to periodically review your backup logs, troubleshoot the backup process and test your backup systems. None of these tasks adds value to your business. Couldn’t you and your staff use that time in better ways? Our backup service lets you focus on those tasks that have a positive impact on your business.

Cost and Predictability

The cost of a DLT tape auto-loader every few years, plus it’s maintenance cost, combined with backup software and open-file agents, software updates, and the tape media with periodic off-site rotation, it can easily run into multiple thousands of dollars over a three year period. Generally, these tasks are also maintained by consultants who charge $150 or more per hour to keep it all working. If you add to that the cost of off-site storage at a facility, a periodic test restore, the time for your staff to perform the backups and an occasional “real” restore, all for a process that a has typical success rate of 23%, tape backups do not make sound business sense.
