Backup and data security
Backup is a critical part of protecting any business data. However, due to cost and difficulty in management, many hotels and businesses are limited to managing only critical infrastructure such as email, PMS databases, and central file servers.
With our backup software you can back up workstations and server data with a hybrid approach that will work for everyone. A single platform for all your backup needs – we call it HOTBackup.
- Back up files, folders, or complete images for any device
- 5-minute restores through local images on existing storage
- Customisable rolling retention and permanent archiving
- 256-bit AES encryption
HOTBackup includes a unique technology that tracks block-level changes between backups, so you only back up (or restore) what has changed – not the entire file. This keeps backup windows short, only transmits the minimal amount of changed data to be backed up over the network, and improves performance overall.
HOTBackup is built for fast, efficient, remote backups. You can skip the hassles of configuring local and remote backups, storage provisioning, and storage capacity planning. Instead, your backups go safely to us, with backup windows measured typically in minutes, not hours.
Encryption is built into our backup process. Backup data is encrypted at the source, stays encrypted while in transit, and also while at rest.
Licensing and ROI
Pricing for HOTBackup is straightforward and based on an annual subscription on the number of servers and workstations being protected and the amount of datacenter backup storage required.
HOTBackup is the simple, powerful, affordable option. The product’s simplicity and ease of management translate to even greater savings, as staff do not need extensive training or certification. There is no need to buy expensive local storage to support backups, or even to pay for a separate contract for cloud provided storage – it’s all included.
With a simple Green – Amber – Red traffic-light display, it’s easy to see the status of backups for the past 28 days. Best of all, with its innovative compression technologies, it works even across slow ADSL lines.
HOTBackup is used by our customers to store over 70 TB of their data with us.
