Discover Squirrel By D4T – The Cloud Data Backup System You Can Trust

Carissa Parnell

Squirrel is the new cloud data backup system by Hardsoft. It is the latest addition to our family of products that we have developed in-house to make IT easier for businesses.

Our aim is to ensure that companies can access all of their IT services in one place by one provider.

What Is Cloud Data Backup?

Cloud data backup technology allows you to securely store copies of important digital information and files on remote servers.

In Squirrel’s case, the servers are hosted by Hardsoft.

This technology offers your business a reliable and convenient way to safeguard your data from various risks, such as hardware failures, accidental deletion, natural disasters, and cyber threats.

Unlike traditional local backups that rely on physical storage devices, cloud data backup allows users to upload and access their data through an internet connection.

Why Should Businesses Strongly Consider Using Cloud Data Backup Systems?

It’s unpleasant to think about but imagine that a manager in your business accidentally deletes a file, then realises days later that they still need it. Or picture a physical hard drive failure when you had important files stored locally. Perhaps a network malfunction will rob you of vital client details. Worst still, consider that an ex-staff member who retained access, even for a short time, deleted essential files out of spite. All of these scenarios can spell disaster for your business, and they are far more common than you might think.

Let’s look at some of the core advantages of cloud data backup for businesses:

Data Protection and Disaster Recovery: Business data is often critical and irreplaceable. Cloud data backup ensures that important files, documents, customer information, and other essential data are protected against hardware failures, cyberattacks, natural disasters, and human errors. Therefore, cloud data backup helps to maintain business continuity and minimise downtime.

Offsite Backup: Storing backups in a remote location protects against local disasters that could affect on-site hardware. This redundancy safeguards business operations even if the primary office location is compromised.

Scalability: Cloud data backup solutions can accommodate the growing data needs of businesses. As companies expand, they can easily scale up their storage plans without the need for significant investments in new hardware.

Automated Backups: Cloud backup services can be set up to automatically back up data on a regular basis, reducing the risk of human error and ensuring that critical information is consistently protected.

Data Recovery Speed: In the event of data loss, businesses can quickly restore their data from the cloud in seconds avoiding any downtime.

Remote Work and Collaboration: Cloud data backup facilitates remote work and collaboration among employees. Data can be accessed and shared from various locations, supporting flexible work arrangements and improved productivity.
