Manchester based e-services Internet Service Provider, NetServices Plc, has announced the launch of their new enterprise wide remote data backup and disaster recovery service. The service allows customers to secure data at a remote site, reducing the risks associated with a catastrophic failure as well as cutting costs and time spent investing in expensive backup technologies and managing the processes.
NetServices office backup and disaster recovery has been developed so that the solution can be used by all businesses from small business users to much larger corporates with multiple sites either in the

Before implementing the service, NetServices consultants work with customers to understand the risks their businesses may face. This information is then used to build a backup solution which meets individual customer requirements and ensures maximum efficiency with as little disruption to the business as possible.
Mark Vickers said: "There are a number of different backup solutions available in the market today but these are quite inflexible. They have been developed with either the single PC market or much larger enterprises in mind. Our new data backup and disaster recovery service has been developed so that it can be scaled to user requirements and therefore is much more cost efficient."
Data is transferred between the customer and the NetServices data centre using a secure L2TP connection and gateway which removes the need for a leased line between the customer and centre greatly reducing costs. Data is then stored on the customers own servers at the data centre which are in turn backed up either to disk or to a remote site.
In addition to promoting their new disaster recovery services directly NetServices have also recruited a number of resellers who will promote the services to their customer base.
"Using a network of resellers is a very effective way of promoting our new solutions," said Mark Vickers. "We work very closely with them during the sales process to ensure that they win the business providing either sales training or if required technical backup."
The new service has already been adopted by a number companies including legal practices and accountants.
