Backup and Storage Solutions
Backup and Storage Solutions for Business and Home Users
In simple terms, if you don’t have a backup of your data, and the worst happens and a disk fails, you have potentially lost everything on your device. There are ways to safeguard against this, by using one of the many backup and storage solutions available.
One such example, is a NAS (Network Attached Storage) solution, which can be used as a central store and access point for all of your files. A NAS box uses RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive/Independent Disks), which helps to improve performance and provide protection against disk failures. The NAS itself can also be backed up or synchronised with many Cloud storage providers such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, etc. It can be used to backup your data, avoiding the scenario above, can be accessed remotely, and can serve your media files i.e. stream movies, music etc to a Smart TV and other devices.
Some NAS boxes can be used as a surveillance station, acting as a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) for use with CCTV, enabling you to monitor what’s going on remotely from a mobile device or computer. To discuss your particular Backup/Storage requirements, call us today on (01666) 840244.
