All your family's digital photos. All your electronic assignments at school. All your music libraries. Taking care of business means more than documents and spreadsheets. Grow your memories - and the rows in your spreadsheets - with confidence that everything is safely and automatically backed up to your own private server in Canada.
The true value of a backup system is not its ability to save files, but rather to restore them. When hardware is damaged, or files fragmented after being ravaged by a virus, or systems frozen by ransomware, you need to know that your files can be restored quickly and without requiring proprietary software.
In its simplest form, Storm's offsite backups are nothing more than a copy and paste from one server to another. Restoring is just as simple; we just do it all in a very fast, stable and secure way.
When you align with Storm and employ the strategies below, your network will be protected from all potential forms of data loss.
Potential Cause of Data Loss
|Theft||Nightly Offsite Backup|
|Natural Disaster||Nightly Offsite Backup|
|Hardware failure||Multiple hard drives (included)|
|Human Error||Weekly/Monthly Archive (included)|
|Virus||Nightly Offsite Backup|
|Ransomware||Nightly Offsite Backup|
Windows, Mac, Linux ... just install a small program on your system(s) and transfer data to your own backup server. Actual data is backed up, no proprietary file format. Automated incremental backups occur nightly, meaning only changed data is backed up so that backups run fast, efficiently, and cost-effectively. Archiving is included (if desired) to take a weekly, monthly, or quarterly snapshot.
Storm is obsessed with the protection of your data. Your data is stored on a server dedicated you - no one else - and not virtual.
You do not share server space with anyone else.
Each server contains dual enterprise-grade hard drives capable of 1.2 million hours of run time and connected to a battery backup.
A firewall on your server restricts access only to you - not even Storm can access your server outside our office.
Your data is encrypted before being sent to your offsite backup server.
Nightly backups run even if nobody is logged on, as long as your computer is turned on.
Start your day with an emailed report that gives you a snapshot of what took place during the nightly offsite backup. Whether you need just the facts, or a file-by-file explanation, reports are well formatted, written in plain English, and viewable on any device.
Your server is housed in (central) Saskatchewan, Canada, which is a natural disaster free area. Our technical support team is available 24/7 and situated right beside the servers to keep a watchful eye.
"In today’s data hungry world you can never be over prepared when it comes to disaster recovery... Working [with] Storm Applied Technologies we currently have both an onsite and offsite backup that run every evening. Every morning we get a confirmation email on the status of the successful offsite backup or if incomplete, we receive an explanation on the reason and then we can resolve the issue for future backups. Customer support has been fantastic and we would recommend Storm Applied Technologies for your offsite backup provider."

"The Town of Strasbourg’s municipal office was needing offsite data storage, and I was given a recommendation to use Storm Applied Technologies as the provider. From the first email to the last, the whole process went incredibly smooth and I was very much impressed by the professionalism and the team that assisted with the setup. I received continuous updates on the setup progress and any issues that arose were handled promptly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Storm Applied Technologies as an offsite data storage provider. The cost was reasonable and the service impeccable; you will not be disappointed."
