What is the process for online
Matrixforce provides a demonstration and initial free data discovery report. Clients generally perform some archiving or identify dated or non-critical files to backup. Then a full backup is performed to an external drive and imported into the backup vault. After import, incremental hourly or daily snapshots are replicated as scheduled over the Internet.
How is Recovery Online Backup priced?
Matrixforce provides a fixed cost price for setup based upon the unique operating environment and business need of each client requiring either hardware or software or both. On-going monthly cost for data storage is billed per protected gigabyte per month on a tiered model based upon the total amount of data.
What are the risks with using online
There are 2 main risks with using online backup: 1) Limited bandwidth and 2) Service selection. Online backup is not feasible for customers with limited bandwidth such as fractional T-1. When selecting online backup, the service provider should have at least 20 years of on-premise experience restoring critical systems and application data.
