Principal Capabilities of Offsite Backup Software

Offsite Data Distribution

Physical Data Distribution

Offsite backup solutions physically remove copies of the same dataset from each other. This means you can always restore a copy of your data when some physical damage or technical problem (from electricity shortcut to full-scale fire or natural disaster) strikes an original dataset site.

Remote Offsite Backup

Remote Access to Any Offsite Data Backup

By granting your backup software offsite storages, you also grant yourself (or any other trusted person) an access to data copies limited only by network capabilities and your will (as you are controlling the information security and access rights). Restore or copy your data from any point of the world!

Offsite Server Backup Software

No Need for Maintenance with Offsite Server Backup Software

Using some external storage and appropriate offsite backup server software removes a need for maintaining storages, which can be a very useful feature for enterprises. All maintenance activities are parts of business running by a storage owner, not a user who keep backups offsite.

  • Keeping data offsite in native formats, allowing using these data from storages directly;
  • Scheduling tasks to run at an exact time as well as for intervals lasting from minutes to months;
  • Selection of partial backup methods (full, incremental, differential and mixed backups);
  • Keeping offsite backup data as different versions of the same dataset;
  • Running other (external) software before or after a backup task.
Automatic Offsite Backup

These advantages, along with many standard options including compressing and encrypting data as well as running all offsite data backup software operations in a "stealthy" mode (as a Windows service), make Handy Backup a very capable solution for organizing offsite backup data.

Use Cases for Offsite Backup

There are many types of tasks for implementing offsite backup solutions. Here is the short list of popular tasks of such types.

  • Shared data. Offsite backup allows accessing these data by any person from any place.
  • Vital information. Using the off-site backup technique, you will protect it from local perils.
  • Distributing datasets. Sometimes, "backup" means only sending data online to other users.
  • Big databases. This is a common sense to store backups for mirrored databases offsite.
