First Class Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

The prospect of losing vital data and suffering costly downtime is a concern any business owner. Traditional backup methods are antiquated and simply too unreliable, inefficient, and/or incomplete to keep up with the business needs of today.

First Class Advanced Backup Technology 

Our First Class Backup Vault utilizes advanced inverse chain technology that eliminates a key problem with the traditional backup process: the backup chain. Our solution takes your data and converts it directly into a virtual image (VMDK file} each time a backup occurs. This means your most recent backup image is always the base image and does not rely on past incrementals to restore data.

Furthermore, since each backup is a fully bootable virtual machine, there is no need for a conversion process to occur before performing a restore. This new way of storing data allows for instant on- and off-site recovery and can prevent businesses from having to experience costly downtime in the event of a catastrophe.

Backup verification
Our First Class Backup Vault contains another industry-first feature: verification of backup, which ensures bootability and hardware independent restore. After a backup is completed, the image file is test booted, and a technician ensures that it can be successfully recovered should the need arise.

First Class Backup Snapshots
The First Class Backup Vault provides continuous backup snapshots based on a granular schedule and retention policy that is highly configurable. Snapshots are instantly virtualized allowing the recovery of files, folders, even data in Microsoft Exchange or SharePoint to occur in minutes – not days, weeks or months.
