Cyber HouseKeeping inc is provider of network consulting and implementation services
that needed data protection to ensure business continuity, even in the event of a server breakdown.
Cyber HouseKeeping inc was previously using disk-to-tape to back up all the various systems the business was running on.
Backing up and recovering data was not only a very complicated and time-consuming process, it was also very unreliable. When retrieving data
from the tapes, once they had been delivered back to Cyber HouseKeeping inc, a lot of the data from the tapes was irretrievable.
Cyber HouseKeeping inc’s new online solution automatically transfers data offsite in real-time, eliminating the risk of having backups located onsite in case of a disaster or loss of data during transportation to an offsite location. Data is transmitted and stored offsite in a state of the art data center on a reliable disk subsystem, which is in turn duplicated and backed up onto a second disk sub-system located apart from the primary disk sub-system.
Due to the nature of the business, Cyber HouseKeeping inc runs on a variety of operating systems. Most of its servers are Linux-based and some of them are Mac-based,
because many Cyber HouseKeeping inc employees use Apple Macintosh machines. It also has the obligatory Windows applications and operates with a SAN architecture. SecurStore also needed to take into account the fact that most of the Cyber HouseKeeping inc servers are virtualised and that s2s already had a NAS (network-attached storage) system in place.
The backup service uses many defense mechanisms, such as strong
authentication, data encryption, password protection and client and
system side log legitimate users at Cyber HouseKeeping inc to perform a data recovery
when needed.
