Remote Backup Services, a division of Spearhead Multimedia, was created in 1999 due to the lack of a reliable, easy-to-use, inexpensive backup system. Extensive research was done on with what was available at the time and a software company was chosen. RBS has used licensed services through this company which is the pioneer of offsite backup.
Client data is stored in secure facilities on Network Attached, Multi-drive Storage Appliances which are backed up on additional external hard drives. This leaves a small footprint and makes the base system portable, if, in case of a facility emergency, the equipment requires relocation. Replication servers handle a secondary instance of the client data also.
The data is encrypted at the client site and sent to our servers. All stored client data at the facilities are worthless to anyone but the account holder due to the high (128 bit) encryption.
Multiple internet connections round out the network and complete our part of our clients’ Disaster Recovery Plan.
