Backup software is primarily used as a means of securing important data residing on computer or server hard drives. It can be used for individual computers or for an enterprise’s computers, servers and networking devices. Backup software for individual use generally backs up selected files, folders and important operating system files on the same computer/hard drive. The advanced or enterprise-level software is typically integrated within each computer, server or node and backs up selected files and folders on a scheduled basis or as required. The backup software transmits the duplicated/backup data over the network/Internet to a local backup server or on an Internet/cloud-based backup storage server. Backup software also has the ability to compress data to reduce the amount of backup space required, as well as versioning control for maintaining different versions of the same file.
Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. This method replicates the behavior of specific software components in cloud-based and API-driven applications, most useful in product or service testing.
We offer networked storage solutions that help your business save on costs and improve its interconnectivity, based on your company’s specific needs.
Our solutions are designed to meet the capacity, performance and availability requirements of all your business applications whether those applications sit inside virtualized or non-virtualized environments. It is simply a matter of time before every small business grows and requires more space for data storage. Information is the lifeline of most companies and investing in new applications that manage and protect data can be complex and expensive.
Network-Attached Storage. : Network-attached storage (NAS) provides fast, simple, reliable access to data in an IP networking environment, serving files by its hardware component, software, or configuration. NAS solutions are suitable for small and medium businesses that require large amounts of economical storage shared between multiple users over a network. NAS systems are networked, purpose-built specialized computer appliances that are easy to manage and do not require extensive IT support, often lacking at smaller companies. And given that many small businesses lack IT departments, NAS solutions are easy to deploy, centrally manage and consolidate.
Storage Area Network : A SAN reorganizes storage in the common user network into an independent, high-performance network, known as block level data storage. SANs are primarily used to enhance traditional storage devices. They are typically assembled using three principle components: cabling, host bus adapters (HBAs) and switches. Each switch and storage system on the SAN must be interconnected and the physical connections must support bandwidth levels that can adequately handle peak data activities.
In a technical sense, a server is an instance of a computer program that accepts and responds to requests made by another program, known as a client. Less formally, any device that runs server software could be considered a server as well. Servers are used to manage network resources. For example, a user may setup a server to control access to a network, send/receive e-mail, manage print jobs, or host a website.
Some servers are committed to a specific task, often referred to as dedicated. As a result, there are a number of dedicated server categories, like print servers, file servers, network servers, and database servers. However, many servers today are shared servers which can take on the responsibility of e-mail, DNS, FTP, and even multiple websites in the case of a web server.
Because they are commonly used to deliver services that are required constantly, most servers are never turned off. Consequently, when servers fail, they can cause the network users and company many problems. To alleviate these issues, servers are commonly high-end computers setup to be fault tolerant.
