post Post   Comments (1)  

Online data backup and recovery, or electronic vaulting, gives your company the ability to automatically backup information and move data to a remote center, ensuring that critical data is stored safely. According to research from TheInfoPro[1] , close to a third of Fortune 1000 companies surveyed use a storage service provider for daily backup.

Typical costs:

  • Online backup companies base their fees on the amount of data stored, typically ranging from 10 to more than 1,000 gigabytes (GB).
  • MediaMax offers 25GB of free online storage and charges $4.95 a month for 100GB.Carbonite offers unlimited storage for $55 a year, and Mozy[2] offers 2 GB of backup at no charge and unlimited storage for $4.95 a month.

What should be included:
  • Solutions should be fully automated -- after setup, information should be encrypted before being transmitted to a data center, and should be easily retrievable.
  • Data protection software should be easy to download and install.
  • Information should be automatically backed up, 24 hours day.
Additional costs:
  • With some providers, expect to pay more to store more than 5 or 25GB.
  • If you require a backup of your files, and you can't wait for a download, Mozy can provide you with a DVD of your files shipped overnight for about $90.
Shopping for online data backup:
  • Free storage is availabile through Mozy(2GB)[3] and MediaMax (25GB). Carbonite[4] offers a 15-day free trial with unlimited storage.
