ND Backup and Recovery

We have all experienced that moment when you realise you have lost hours of work – imagine losing an entire server that powers your business.

Using our industry-leading software, we ensure that backups of your data are created regularly and stored off-site. The frequency and depth of your backup is something that we can discuss with you, but once agreed we set a regular schedule so you can sleep soundly.

Our software regularly tests your backups and displays the status on an easily accessible screen so you’re always aware of the most recent status.

Physical and Virtual Server Backup Solution

  • Efficient backup: The unique architecture tracks changes from within the disk, making it more efficient than traditional image-based backup. This results in smaller incremental backup files, allowing you to back up more frequently and retain data longer using the same amount of storage and network bandwidth.
  • Physical-to-virtual recovery: If your physical hardware is unavailable, you can recover the server as a virtual machine to your own VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V environments, including to a Hyper-V instance in Azure.
  • Bare-metal restore: Use our cloud server backup software to run regular backups of boot volumes, system states, applications, and system data, helping you prepare for almost any disaster.
  • Optimized resource usage: Following your initial backup, our server backup software is powered by proprietary TrueDelta technology that tracks and backs up only changed bytes (rather than full files), facilitating faster backup processes so you don’t need to schedule them during off-hours.
  • Cloud storage built for security: Our global data centres meet or exceed ISO compliance, and our backup solutions use AES 256-bit encryption to protect your backup data in transit and at rest.
  • Availability: Our data centres use a minimum of n+1 redundancy on critical systems for power, environment, and internet access.
  • Virtualization support: Cloud-based server backup natively supports both VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V platforms.
  • Comprehensive platform support: With support for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V, Net-Defence Backup is engineered to cover an entire network. We also archive application data from Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Exchange, and SharePoint.

Microsoft 365 Backup Solution

  • Protection against data loss: Users can often unwittingly (or purposely) delete important emails, or OneDrive or SharePoint files. If this happens, Net-Defence Backup offers the ability to quickly search for and recover what you need.
  • Access to email for former employees: If employees leave and you don’t want to continue paying Microsoft a subscription fee simply to store their email and shared documents.
  • Support for compliance: If you are responsible for an organisation that falls under regulations with data-retention requirements, Net-Defence Backup is designed to help you retain and archive critical data.
  • Easy management: With net-Defence Backup for Microsoft 365, you can manage your Exchange, OneDrive, and SharePoint backups from a single web-based dashboard.
  • Automation: Net-Defence Backup helps you strike the right balance between automation and control. You can manually select which Exchange accounts and mailboxes you want to protect, or automatically add newly created Microsoft 365 accounts to the backup schedule.
  • Point-in-time restore: Exchange mailboxes are backed up automatically up to six times a day, and backups for OneDrive and SharePoint accounts are performed automatically up to four times a day, giving you multiple daily restore points.
  • Data retention: Exchange data is retained for seven years, and OneDrive and SharePoint data retained for one year.
