Cloud Backup is MediaCloud’s offsite backup service that enables customers to easily and securely backup and restore critical business data to and from our secure backup servers using the latest in enterprise class backup technology for ultimate reliability, flexibility, and security.
Cloud Backup gives you complete control over the data backed up onto our servers and even allows you to set retention schedules to ensure you are able to recover data from any day you specify. Thereby allowing you to enjoy all the capabilities that managed tape backups give you – but without the overhead
How does it work?
Cloud Backup initially backs up all the data files and then backs up only new or changed files as you work. The initial upload may take some time, but future uploads are incremental and quick because Cloud Backup simply scans your computers for new and changed files. Our system compresses, encrypts and transfers files to our data centres using an automatic throttle to control the bandwidth so that backups don’t affect your Internet speed. Cloud Backup is compatible with Mac, Windows & Linux.
What gets backed up?
At MediaCloud, we backup the valuable data that cannot be retrieved if a computer breaks or is lost or stolen. Therefore, we do not backup the operating system, applications, system caches or other temporary information. We focus on documents, photos, email and media files, storing only the versions of your file changes.
