Top Managed Remote Backup Services - Business Networks
SYMFORM – A relatively new entrant in the marketing of managed remote backup services, Symform does not back up your data to a single remote server. Instead, it encrypts the data and saves it on the several PCs on different networks spread all over the planet.
In other words, the company asks all registrants to spare some percent of space on each PC in their networks. It then pools all these PCs to get plenty of space for storing encrypted and compressed data that can be read only by the Symform software. You never know at which organization or where on the Earth your data is stored. Similarly, the participants do not know what is stored on their PCs.
Any illegal attempt to access the reserved space is termed breach of condition and the person or company involved may lose its registration as well as its backup.
The best part is that you get unlimited storage for just USD15 per month. The accompanying SAAS supports FTP, helps you create backup data sets, schedule the backups, encrypt and compress the data, and route it to one or more networks for storage. While restoring, the SAAS helps in figuring out the networks and PCs where your backup set is stored, retrieves it, passes it to your computer, and finally removes the compression and encryption to offer you usable data.
EXAVAULT – You might have heard of ExaVault, one of the pioneers in managed remote backup services. ExaVault offers plans as low as USD 4.95 per month. The remote backup service provider claims to offer you unlimited bandwidth and concurrent logins so that you can use the backup system for collaboration purposes, too. It also offers you the facility to create as many sub-user accounts as you wish. With all these facilities, ExaVault serves as a good option for enterprise strength network backup.
The best thing about ExaVault is that they offer a 31-day remorse period. This means if you are not satisfied with their service, you can cancel the registration and get a refund.
DriveHQ – DriveHQ offers you several options other than just remote backup services. You can use the extra space for web hosting or as an email server. You can also use DriveHQ's multiple, concurrent login facility for collaborations. Its own proprietary software supports both “drag and drop" as well as a “navigation" system. Due to the high speed uploads and downloads and the drag and drop facility, DriveHQ stands among the top used remote backup services. Another reason for DriveHQ's popularity is its plans are relatively cheaper than other managed remote backup services in the market.
These are just five remote backup services. There are plenty of other service providers offering both unmanaged and managed remote backup services. However, as cloud storage is still under question owing to privacy issues, not all business houses use them. On the other hand, the most beneficial aspect of managed remote backup services is that you can access/retrieve most current data from any place on the planet.
