Data Backup & Storage

Safe Host provides a complete range of services to ensure efficient and cost effective operations of your data centre. Our approach is to offer various service modules that gives customers a granular view on their IT spend.

Data Backup & Storage - Files and Databases

SafeBackup™ Files and Databases is a cost-effective and secure solution for Customer servers. The service protects the applications against data loss or corruption, while freeing Safe Host’s Customers’ from time-consuming and costly backup administration.

Safe Host SA uses its data centre facility to provide Disaster Recovery Services. SafeBackup™ Services are housed in Safe Host’s fully redundant data centre facility and utilize high-end disk and tape storage libraries. This ensures that businesses have the peace of mind knowing that in the event of a data loss or disaster their data remain available in a safe and secure place.

Recent backups, up to one month, are to be found on disk rather than tape. Restores of these data are, therefore, when requested, rapidly executed.

Agents installed on the client machines enable backups to be taken for all major software environments such as MS Windows (with system state), UNIX and Linux, and applications such as MS SQL, MS Exchange and Oracle.
