Huge thank you to the wonderful Chris of Blue Sky Computer Solutions who has saved the life of The Coaching Garden’s pensioner-age laptop. Fast, amazingly efficient and pain-free. Even the dog thought he was great!

I must send out a Massive thank you to Chris Lambert for being my super hero!! He managed to unlock my Mobile phone today!! He really is a lovely chap and a great whiz with all our computer issues in the office, and has surpassed himself today by rescuing my phone and I still have all my contacts and more importantly my photos! Yay!

A big thank you to Chris Lambert for unlocking Michelle Nunn phone, our little boy had locked it by accident on holiday and we thought Michelle might lose all her precious family snaps on her phone. Chris has saved the day!!

Top Ten Reasons to Use Online Backups

We wrote an article not long ago detailing five ways that online backups can save you money. In this article, we’re expanding on that to highlight a whole raft of good reasons why you should consider using online backups… full stop! And here they are…

  1. Online backups are cost-effective to run…

We’ve already mentioned that online backups can save you money, but it is still one of the top reasons to use them so we thought it was worth mentioning it again. Put simply, online backups give you full data protection for a predictable monthly cost. Compared with other backup solutions such as tape, online backups are extremely cost effective. There are no initial costs for hardware or setup and the price per unit reduces the more your data file grows.

  1. They’re easy to use…

Once set up, online backups pretty much operate on a ‘fire and forget’ basis if you want them to. You simply set the software to run on demand, or to a schedule, and you ‘tell’ it what to back up and it will do as you command.

  1. Little support is required…

Changes to the data backup process, times or data selection, can be done easily by you, the user. At Blue Sky Computer Solutions, we simply monitor the infrastructure behind the scenes, meaning little or no input is required from us ongoing.

  1. They aid compliance…

If you include online backups as part of your business continuity plan, they can help to achieve compliance with regulatory requirements and data protection regulations.

  1. Online backups help with time management…

It’s important to remember that your data is backed up incrementally, and not in entirety every time. This means that the time taken to carry out a backup is reduced considerably. Also, as everything is automated, your time is freed up to boost productivity.

  1. They’re secure…

When a backup takes place, two copies of your data are stored offsite in two state of the art data centres. Connectivity to these centres is protected by a military level encryption key known only to you. They can’t be stolen or burnt.

  1. Data recovery is simple…

The online backup software allows you to retrieve just single files or do a full restore. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access your backed up data. Time spent restoring files in the event of a disaster is reduced significantly.

  1. Online backups are scaleable…

With other types of backup, businesses find their data file grows to a point where new hardware is required. With online backups, however, this is not the case. The data limit can be increased quickly and easily to a new agreed limit and the increase is added to your next invoice.

  1. Suitable for all types of business…

Whether you’re a small business based from home, an SME, or even a larger enterprise, our online backup solution will work for you. In this instance… size doesn’t matter.

  1. They work well with mobile…

Because of the way the software works, you can back up from anywhere with an internet connection whilst you’re on the move. Put simply, that means you don’t have to be in the office for a backup to take place.

At Blue Sky Computer Solutions, we’ve worked with businesses across Northamptonshire and further beyond to successfully implement online backup solutions. Whether you work from home, or are a small business operating from an office location, we can help you set one up too.

So if you’re concerned that you don’t yet have a backup procedure in place, or would like to switch to online backups, give us a call!
