LOS ANGELES, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IBackup, a leading online backup provider, today answered the need for faster data backup by highlighting their IBackup Express service.
This service was created to address a growing problem in the business world; companies are generating and storing more and more data, but internet bandwidth is failing to catch up, leaving many businesses without a fast way to back up their critical data to the cloud.
IBackup Express tackles this problem by shipping a physical hard drive, up to 5TB, onto which data can be transferred significantly faster. Once the data is uploaded to the drive, an IBackup customer simply ships the drive back with the included return-shipping label; their data is in the cloud in less than a week. Shipping charges, both ways, are covered by IBackup as part of regular subscription fees, so there's no additional fee for the service.
"Slow upload speeds and latency are major problems that businesses face," says Shane Bingham, Business Development Coordinator at IBackup, "Many businesses are generating or keeping a lot of data for compliance, record-keeping, or for tax purposes. That data can take forever to upload to the cloud. IBackup Express solves that problem at no cost to our customers."
IBackup is an integrated online backup, recovery, storage, and sharing service for enterprise level businesses and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Along with the cross compatibility is the ability to backup several computers and devices to a single account. Software features include automatic scheduling for backups, sub-accounts, incremental backup subsequent to initial full backup, and file versioning.
On top of this, IBackup supports open file backup, system state backup, as well as server and database backups – MS SQL Server, MS Exchange Server, MS SharePoint Server, Oracle Server. All data has 256-bit AES encryption with a private key option.
