Offsite Backup is important to make sure your data will always be available in the unlikely event of any data loss takes place at your main site (where data is created & stored).
Offsite Backup should be an automated process, ie one that quietly keeps a set of your data round-the-clock as no one can predict when a data loss will happen. When data loss happens, you would not want to regret for selectively doing backup of data you think is important, but left out those even more important ones.
Data theft may happen via two channels :- physical theft and cyber theft.
Physical theft can happen easily if your method of doing data backup is to store your data into your portable hard disk drive, since anyone is able to remove the hard drive easily, even within locked drawers or rooms. On the other hand, if you opt to perform Offsite Backup to ExpertVM Cloud, your data will be stored in our certified datacenter, where there will be layers of physical access control to prevent physical theft of your data.
Cyber theft is usually the main concern over data stored on the cloud. The good news is, at ExpertVM Cloud, you get full root / administrator access to your server. Therefore you can implement your security policies and perform server hardening the way you want, including restricting access via your Private VPN only, to secure your data within Offsite Backup.
In short, your data can be made very safe within our facility.
There are definitely merits of paid backup licences such as Acronis or Veeam, to name a few but in order to do Offsite Backup, all you require is simply a large storage VPS, such as our Storage VPS and then you can just use open source software such as FreeFileSync to securely backup all your data over to our VPS, using SFTP protocol.
Yes, you can encrypt the entire VPS Cloud Server or partition of your choice, to enhance the protection over your data at Offsite Backup.
Yes, you can certainly recover, relocate or remove your backup data out of our cloud services any time you wish, since you get full root / administrator access to the server.
