There are 2 types of people: Those who have lost their data, and those who haven't ... yet. Storm wants to collaborate with you to ensure you don't experience data loss. All your family's digital photos, electronic assignments at school, music, and video libraries are backed up daily. You won't have to worry about running manual backups and switching drives or creating libraries of DVDs. You can take comfort in employing Storm's offsite backups to 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.
Potential Cause of Data Loss

The true value of a backup system is not its ability to save files, but rather to restore them. When disaster strikes from hardware damage, viruses, ransomware, etc you need to know that your files can be restored quickly and without requiring proprietary software.
Storm's offsite backups are nothing more than an encrypted 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.
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, without using a 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 snapshots.
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.
"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."
