Archiving data is essential to prevent a data disaster.

On-line backup services work much like traditional backup software. With an on-line backup service, however, your important data is transmitted over the Internet and securely stored on a server in a professional data centre.

The advantage of having your important data backed up off-site through vbt is that it is safe from theft, fire, and other local disasters.

vbt will design, install, configure, and troubleshoot your backup system.  Our on line back-up service will give you:

  • Peace of Mind: automatic backup saves time and eliminates manual backup hassles.
  • Fully Managed and Monitored: vbt engineers will monitor your backups 24/7.
  • Reliability: vbt offers cutting edge server backup infrastructure.

Disaster Recovery

Threats to business critical systems are many and varied. Natural disasters like flooding and fire, along with people factors, such as a disgruntled employees or human error that lets in a virus, make it essential to have a disaster recovery and business continuity plan.

vbt has been designing and implementing Network disaster recovery solutions for the SME sectors for the past 10 years.

31% of PC users have lost ALL of their files due to events beyond their control.
34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures.
60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster.
93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately.

vbt’s hosted server solutions offers flexibility and convenience and access to your data from virtually anywhere in the world

At their most basic function, hosted servers are used primarily for hosting client websites. However, hosted servers also facilitate hosting files, images, games and other critical digital content and data.

vbt’s hosting servers can be shared among a number of clients. vbt can also provide dedicated servers to meet the needs of a single client with large websites and/or high volumes of data and  where the hosting needs of  the client necessitate more control and/or bandwidth.

vbt’s hosted server solutions service ensures that all client servers are backed up every night. Our hosted server technology will enable you to access your data  any where, any time, but keep your business secure.
