  10. 11. Solution Details <ul><li>A Microsoft Windows Server only - no desktops </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Set up network shares for critical desktop info </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A NAS is required at each end-client location </li></ul><ul><li>Block Level Backups vs. File-level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eliminates costly backup software and agents. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Incremental Forever Methodology-near real-time backup (every 15 minutes). </li></ul><ul><li>Security -256 AES Encryption on NAS and off-site </li></ul>
  11. 12. Restoration <ul><ul><li>Restoration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Include all servers with critical data or used for remote access </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data available for restoration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Applications </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>File folders </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Data files </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SQL Database </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Exchange Database </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Individual e-mail messages </li></ul></ul></ul>

Data can be restored by imaging the BDR at the data center and shipped overnight to your location </li></ul><ul><li>For security purposes, your data will never be hosted, only stored at the co-location facility. Encryption without the key, is not accessible </li></ul>
