BACKUP SOLUTIONS

PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS

As your trusted IT partner, Go West IT takes the safety of your data seriously and we offer several industry leading solutions to protect your data.

Backups are key to a proper business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan. Whether you experience a catastrophic loss, accidental data deletion, or simply need to recover a terminated employee’s data, backups provide the ability to restore your access to that data. To fully prepare your BCDR plan, you should ensure that your backups are stored in a secure, off-site location.

At the core are recovery centric solutions from leading vendors such as Datto and StorageCraft to meet a wide range of system and data recovery objectives. Solutions include options for onsite and offsite replication, full image and file based restores, as well as the frequency and retention of backups.

Go West Backup Solutions

The Problem:

All of your data is housed in one physical location, placing your data, and therefore your organization, at risk. There are several scenarios where the data can be lost: including physical disasters (such as a fire or flood) data corruption from a virus or faulty drives, and even loss from a ransomware attack. Securely replicating your business-critical data (preferably offsite in a secure cloud) is of the utmost importance.

The Go West IT Solution:

Go West IT offers several services to back up your critical on-premises data.

  • Datto Backup & Disaster Recovery – The Datto Appliance is an on-site hardware device that runs an image backup software inside your network environment, backing up your data to both the on-site appliance and to a secure off-site cloud. The Datto appliance has compute resources that allows you to spin up your servers on the appliance during a disaster or in the cloud, should you experience a catastrophic on-site failure. This is a robust and feature rich BCDR solution that provides the best BCDR strategy for on premises server.
  • StorageCraft Cloud Premium – StorageCraft backs up your data to an on-site network attached storage device (NAS), then replicates the data to a secure off-site cloud. This solution includes licensing and up to 1 TB of cloud storage per server at a very reasonable monthly cost. StorageCraft Cloud Premium also offers the ability to spin up your servers in the cloud at no additional charge.

The Problem:

While having your data and applications hosted in a cloud environment may reduce many risks associated with on premises solutions such as floods or fire, it does not prevent your server(s) from being compromised with a virus or a threat actor stealing your data in a ransomware attack. If your cloud hosted server is compromised, it can be disastrous for your organization.

The Go West Backup Solution:

Azure Backup is a cost-effective, secure, one-click backup solution that scales based on your backup storage needs. Azure Backup offers geo-redundancy and is ideal for Virtual Machines, SQL databases, and Azure file shares.

The Problem:

While storing important data on a laptop or desktop is convenient, it can also be quite risky. If your workstation is lost, damaged, affected by ransomware, or compromised by a virus, you can lose any data saved to the hard drive.

The Go West Backup Solution: Go West IT offers several services to back up your workstation data.

  • MSP Backup Workstation – Performs full image backup of all the data contained on a workstation. This allows Go West to restore an entire computer operating system or individual files and folders.
  • MSP Backup Documents – Backup for a defined list of file types that allows Go West to restore individual files. Please contact info@gowest.com today for a full list of file extensions that are supported.

The Problem:

As organizations move more data to hosted services like Exchange Online, SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams, it is more important than ever to secure this data. Cloud hosted email platforms such as Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace can be subject to lost data due to accidental or malicious deletion, or ransomware attacks.

The Go West Backup Solution:

Datto SaaS Protection safeguards any email, file, or other data stored in the Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace ecosystems from unwanted deletion, ransomware, and app overwrite errors. Engineered to provide comprehensive data protection in a secure cloud environment, Datto SaaS Protection provides consistently reliable backups, granular restores and exports, and security controls to meet data compliance and regulatory needs.
