HotSync Backup

Don't Gamble with your most precious Business Resource

The following statistics have been pulled from various sources around the world.

  • 30% of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year. 70% fail within five years. (Home Office Computing Magazine)
  • 34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures.
  • 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster.
  • 93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more due to a disaster went bankrupt within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately. (National Archives & Records Administration in Washington)
  • Companies that aren't able to resume operations within ten days of a disaster are not likely to survive. (Strategic Research Institute)

HotSync Computers have no way of substantiating the above claims. Based on our many years of experience however we can say that if your company loses its data and you don’t have a recoverable backup it will be really really difficult to survive. Contrary to popular myth it doesn't necessarily take a fire or flood to cause catastrophic data loss. It could be a server failure, a malicious employee or even staff negligence. Over the last 14 years the staff at HotSync Computers have had to deal with all of the above situations.

If any of the following applies to your company we strongly advise you to reconsider your strategy.

  • You never make backups.
  • You backup onto tape.
  • You rely upon staff to remember to take copies of your data off site.
  • You allow vital company documents to be stored locally on individual’s computers.
  • You have remote workers using devices like laptops that collect vital data that isn't backed up.
  • You don’t have or have never tested your disaster recovery plan.
  • You use an online backup service based abroad.

HotSync Backup has the most comprehensive data protection service in our region. With a proven record of recovery, and retention of data after a disaster.  We are locally based and guarantee that our fit and forget solution will have your company up and running again very quickly should you suffer any kind of data loss problem.
