Data Backup

As data volumes continue to grow so does the need to store it securely and ensure its availability to the business, this creates the need to manage the way data is stored to achieve business performance, integrity, and scalability.

To achieve these goals a strategic storage plan is essential, understanding business objectives and SLA’s is the starting point, ensuring that the solution deployed meets regulatory and compliance criteria is a must.

Deciding on the solution that best meets your business needs can be daunting.

E2 data protection services are designed to secure your business data off-site and out of harm’s way. We offer a range of flexible services that includes scheduled daily backups, real time replication and automated failover to meet the most challenging RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recover Time Objective) for mission critical systems.

E2 Backup service can ether backup your data directly on to our resilient cloud platform or, alternatively backup to local storage first then replicate it to the cloud. You get the best of both worlds; a local copy for rapid recovery and a Cloud based copy that can be restored in a DR scenario.

  • All Data is encrypted at source and stored in UK Datacentres
  • Data is DE duplicated to reduce actual volume of data stored
  • No charges for data transfers or restoration
  • Intuitive web GUI

Your critical servers and applications deserve the best - the E2 Hosted Replication & High Availability service. This provides a business continuity and disaster recovery solution based on real-time data replication to the Cloud with automatic failover and failback.
