In the world of backup, there are a lot of solutions available to you that are confusing and expensive. Well, those days are gone. The only things that really matter in the event of a computer crash are your documents, photos, music, videos, etc. Your operating system and your software is easy to replace.

To start backing up your important documents, you don’t need to spend a lot of money… in fact, it is very inexpensive. As far as software goes, we recommend CrashPlan. CrashPlan offers you all the features you need to start your backups and keep them going without having to hire an IT guru. Then, if something bad happens, like your computer crashes, you can easily restore your pricesless pictures, videos, documents, etc.


Remember, it isn’t enough to just backup your computer to a thumb drive or an external hard drive.  Those items can be easily damaged, lost, or stolen. You should also be backing up to dedicated offsite storage. We are now offering our cloud based storage solutions up as a backup destination for you to use with CrashPlan.  Each of our service offerings provide you with enough space to backup your data.  Your data is encrypted before it is sent to our servers ensuring that you are the only one that has access.

Each of our backup servers are replicated to servers both onsite in our data center and offsite to make sure that everything you store with us is kept safe.
