Could Cloud Managed Backups Save Your Business?


Just how safe is your business information? You’ve got a password on your server, so that should be enough, right? Not exactly. We currently live in an age where cybercrime pays much more than real-world crime, and perpetrators don’t even have to leave the comfort of their desk chairs to steal your business data within a matter of minutes.

Maybe you’re not going to be hacked, but what would happen if a fire ripped through your offices while you slept and decimated your servers, or a disgruntled employee tried to wreak some havoc on their last day? Perhaps even a completely innocent loss or deletion of that important presentation you prepared for tomorrow!

Would you be able to get that information back? With Cloud Managed backups, your business can continue to operate unhindered when struck by the unthinkable…

Centralised Management

Cloud-based centralised management allows Stratus IT to actually maintain all of your connected devices from one single remote location. This includes any software updates, firmware upgrades, antivirus management and network monitoring – across all of your networks and no matter how geographically dispersed they are.

Centralised management is essential for business operations continuity should data loss occur. This also saves time when upgrades need to be rolled out across all your business devices. Instead of updating each computer one at a time, our expert team can update all connected computers at once.

Universal Restore

If you’re a business owner or manager of sorts, chances are you’ve got a work laptop that you take home when wanting to put in some after-hours work. So, what would happen if that laptop of yours accidentally ended up in a swimming pool, or in the hands of thieves looking to turn it over for a quick buck?

Well, if you aren’t using cloud managed backups, you probably won’t see that information ever again. On the other hand, if you are backing up in the cloud with Stratus IT, you won’t even have to break a sweat! Universal restore is a service that installs your device’s last backup onto another device – regardless of its dissimilarity. Essentially, this means that you can pick up exactly where you left off before your device was compromised.

Compression and Deduplication

In the interest of efficiency and saving precious storage space, cloud managed backups include compression and deduplication services. Compression reduces the size of files on the cloud servers to reduce the space they occupy.

Deduplication is a method of removing redundant copies of files across devices on the same server. For example, if you send out a bulk mailer to employees with a downloadable video, and every employee downloads the video onto their device, there will be multiple instances of the same file on the server – wasting space. Deduplication essentially rectifies the situation by hosting only one version of the file on the server that all employees on the network can access.
