What was their problem?

Direct Supplies are the largest cosmetics supplier in Europe. As a result their data has grown in size as well as complexity. This prompted the need for a complete re-structure in their data management and data backups. They decided to use a proactive approach and called in Online IT Backup to manage this. Two requirements within the re-structure were; firstly that they wanted to access their Company data securely from any internet connected computer worldwide, and secondly, to have a retention policy of 365 days; meaning they could recover any single file or full backup set within the last year.

How did Online IT Backup help?

Using our powerful server edition we were able to provide the following; daily Microsoft exchange backup with mailbox (brick level) for all staff, daily SQL server database backup and on their three file servers we used CDP (continuous data protection). CDP is a powerful service that is constantly running, copying and encrypting changing files on the fly to our data center. The two requirements were also successfully implemented, the ability to restore files via the internet is included within the server edition and the retention policy can be as many days as required.

“When our old tape backup failed a colleague recommended me to Online IT Backup. Every night our exchange server, SQL databases and company accounts are backed up offsite in two secure data centres. Thanks again for such a fantastic product that works – I dread to think what the cost would be to my business without Online IT Backup.”
