Data are your dearest possessions. That is why you should always be very careful when it comes to storing and securing your company data.
Designing the best suitable backup solution is a custom piece of work on its own. Indeed, every company environment is different. The type of backup solution depends on several factors: the data volume, the speed at which the data volume evolves and the way it evolves, the preference for on-site or off-site data storage, etc.
And there is more. What is the last stored point to which you want to be able to return? Can you live with a data loss of the last 24 h? In that case, a nightly backup may suffice.
If the restore point must be closer, Combell offers the possibility to create snapshots while your applications are running. How fast do you want to be able to restore a backup? How long do you want to keep backups? Depending on the answer to all these questions, we will find the backup solution that perfectly suits your needs. To do this, Combell uses both standard products and pure custom solutions.
All backup solutions are available in shared or dedicated mode. With dedicated backup, your company data are stored in an environment dedicated to you alone.
The benefit of this is that the efficiency of the solution does not depend on the activity caused by other customers. With a shared solution, you share the backup environment with other companies. So, Combell has a modular shared tape robot in its data centre.
As the backup volume grows, we keep increasing the capacity of the robot. With shared backup, Combell guarantees constant usage monitoring. If necessary, the capacity and the efficiency of the solution are immediately adapted. With shared backup, Combell uses a standard backup schedule. With dedicated backup, the customer may of course define the backup parameters, such as the frequency of the restore points.
