Affordable backup and disaster recovery for small & medium sized businesses in West Michigan.
The Harsh Reality of Data Loss:
93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster, and 50% filed for bankruptcy immediately. (Source: National Archives & Records Administration in Washington.)

This year, 40% of small to medium businesses that manage their own network and use the Internet for more than e-mail will have their network accessed by a hacker, and more than 50% won't even know they were attacked. (Source: Gartner Group)
A complete solution that is designed to reduce any server down time with the use of a specialized back up and virtual server appliance.
Allows near real-time backups-as frequent as every 15 minutes.
Offers off-site storage at an affordable cost
Provides a low cost, speedy disaster recovery process.
Data is encrypted so it is not accessible to anyone, either on the NAS or at the remote storage facility without the passkey.
Eliminates the cost and time of managing on-site tape backup. We monitor and manage the entire process.
All costs-frequent on site backups, on site virtual server, remote storage, disaster recovery in the event of disaster and 24x7 management of the entire process are bundled at a price that is comparable to the overall cost of buying and managing tape backup.
State of the art technology:
Standby server-NAS speedily converts to a virtual server
Our solution allows for seamless, daily off-site storage, if this option is selected.
Data stored at two XO highly available, highly secure Data Centers in Phoenix and Baltimore
Easy restoration-remotely done by our engineers.
NAS provides capability to perform bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware with minimal downtime
Restoration and virtualization:
All restores-individual files, file folders, email messages, and Exchange mailboxes can be restored by our technical team.
The NAS comes with built-in virtualization software making it a stand-by server. This allows a server which has failed to be restored on the NAS as a virtual image giving you working server in less than 60 minutes (in most cases after notification of an actual server crash) Backup of additional servers can also continue at the same time.
Bare metal restore to dissimilar hardware- when new hardware/spares arrive, the virtual image can be shutdown and the latest backup image can be used to perform a bare metal install on the new hardware.
In the event of catastrophe (such as a natural disaster or fire), a new NAS that will be imaged at our collocation facility and sent out to you next-day business air. This does require that you are sending full images of your servers off site.
For security purposes, your data will never be hosted, only stored at the collocation facility. It is encrypted without the encryption key, it won't be accessible.
