Know exactly where your Off-Site data is:
When you use on-line backup services or even a pricy backup
solution (mostly referred to as “CLOUD Solutions”), you really
don’t know where your data is saved; it could be stored somewhere in
the East coast, West coast, or at any other location worldwide, it
could be stored at a small place in a small unregulated country.
With BlueStone Off-Site backup solution, you know exactly
where your data is stored, and that it is stored at a physical location;
it can be stored at your second business location, at your own
house, or at our facility.
Easy and quick to restore your data in case of disaster
In case your Business hard drives or computers goes down due
to any reason (Natural disaster, theft, sabotage, hardware
failure, user error, software viruses,…), all you have to do is
connect your second off-Site NAS drive to your business network and
you are in business, and will be able to access all your data. Even
before you do that you can access your Off-Site data remotely
through a secure connection which means you will have zero down time.
Unlike other on-line or CLOUD backup services, in which in case of
data restoration, you have to first buy a new external hard drive
(s), install and configure all hard drives on all computers and
servers, and then download your full on-line data from the CLOUD;
This could take days or even weeks depending on how big is your data
and depending on the on-line storage connection speed that is
allowed to your business.
BlueStone Off-Site Backup solution provide you with the same
capabilities of an advanced enterprise backup solution; we customize
a backup solution based on your business requirements without
overloading your business budget with hardware/software technology
that you don't need. We specialize in backup technology, so we
always test new technology that have the same capability as outdated
overprices technology, and are partners to major Technology
manufacturers and distributors, which allows us to bring you
advanced and reliable hardware/software solutions at a very
Unlike many of the on-line backup solutions, our solution includes a
customized physical hardware and software component, so you know
exactly how your data gets saved.
We do not charge your business based on data size or transfer
amount, we charge you a flat monthly rate. You own the hardware
equipment so you can backup and transfer unlimited data based on the
size of the drive(s) installed in your Network Attached Storage (NAS),
which you have own; unlike other on-line or CLOUD backup services,
which they increase their monthly rate based on data size and
do not have any hidden fees, it’s flat and straight forward rate.
(Please check our rates).
Separate Customized hardware for each client:
We dedicate a separate hardware Network Attached Storage (NAS) for
each of our clients, so your data will be saved on dedicated NAS drive(s) at your business side and off-site locations, so all NAS
processor, memory power and hardware resources will be fully
dedicated to your data only; unlike other on-line or CLOUD backup services, which
they store your data on a shared hardware alongside other clients,
which will dramatically affect backup /restore performances and
increase the possibility of losing your data because the increasing
load on the hardware that your data is saved on.
Secure and encryption data transfers:
We transfer your data between your on-site and Off-site locations
using a very secure and encrypted data transfer method referred to
by SSL (encrypted Secure Sockets Layer) session, which means that we
use an encryption key to transfer the data between NAS(s) and in
order to receive and copy data between locations we have to manually
apply the same encryption key between NAS(s) so none can hack your
data while it’s been transferred.
Whenever you are getting close to running out of disk space on your NAS(s),
all what you have to do is add a new larger hard drive inside your
NAS, which only takes a few minutes to do, and will not increase our
monthly charges; unlike other on-line or CLOUD backup services,
which they increase their monthly rate based on data size and
access your files and folders securely any time from anywhere: from your desktop, laptop, cell phone, while traveling,
while visiting a client, even while you are at the beach. You can
view/edit/add/delete your file and folders; all through direct and
secures connection to your own NAS(s) drives. You can or even give
specific remote access to your client(s) to access certain files or
folders directly from your NAS(s).
Users and admin Permission:
We can configure different access and permission on any folder(s) on
your NAS(S) drives to allow different access to different users
or clients. For example, you can setup access permission with
special credentials (User ID/Password) for different departments or
even giving specific access to your clients to access certain files
Ownership and Connectivity:
With BlueStone Backup, you own a physical Network Drive (NAS) with a
full copy of your data, and you have a direct network connection
with your off-site drive; unlike other on-line or CLOUD backup
services, you do not own the cloud space where you save your data
and you do not have control over the network.
On demand and scheduled backups:
With BlueStone Backup, we can schedule multiple backups with
different scheduling for different folders (daily, weekly, or even
on-demand), not just one type of backup.
Reduce overall IT cost:
We are saving your business the cost of purchasing and maintaining
many different devices and medias by combining many different media
storage (CD/DVD, USB drives, internal/external hard drives) with one
advanced Network Attached Storage (NAS), which can also reduce the
risk of losing your data through scattering data on many hardware
devises and medias.
BlueStone Backup solution is an advanced yet affordable solution
comparing to Traditional file servers, which are costly and require
hours for deployment and management. (Please check BlueStone Backup
vs. other on-line & Traditional Backup Solutions).
Hardware RAID option:
BlueStone backup using NAS equipment with RAID option, RAID
stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. RAID arrays allow
multiple individual hard disks to be combined to perform as if they
were one larger disk, and the effect is to spread and replicate the
data across multiple disks; that in turn, reduces the risk of losing
all data if one drive fails.
In the past, hardware RAID has been available only in high-end
servers and enterprise solutions. RAID protects data from hard drive
failure. A failed drive can be replaced and RAID rebuilds the data
from the remaining healthy drives.
