Backup Hardware Solutions | Storage and Software

Hardware backup solutions are very popular among people who don’t want to bother about online backup.

There are special USB backup devices which require you to only press one button to automatically copy all your HDD contents to a built-in HDD. The price of convenience of these devices is that they don’t provide enough flexibility for many use cases.

Backup strategy is always about finding right balance between speed and reliability. Want to keep data locally? Use backup hardware, but don‘t expect it to save you from fires, floods, theft, etc. Thinking about online backups? Then prepare yourself to rely on Internet connection and relatively poor speed of recovery.

The good news is that there are solutions on the market that can provide a needed level of flexibility. Our software is designed for Windows 11/10/8/7 and 2019/2016/2012/2008 Server and allows backing up to any local and networked locations including NAS, USB, FTP/SFTP/FTPS, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and much more.
