TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KineticD™, known for its continuous cloud backup and disaster recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced that its Data Backup System and Method Patent No. 7,401,194, more commonly known as Continuous Data Protection (CDP), is helping more than 40,000 customers with "continuous data backup" and "pause and resume capabilities."
Before KineticD's solution, customers found that backing up critical data was time-consuming, arduous and very often did not happen at all. The initial backup of corporate data often took hours, days or even weeks to complete. Large data files introduced problems since any interruption to the internet during backup resulted in forcing the backup to start over at the beginning of a file set. Finally, restoration of critical data was time-consuming and often produced erratic results.
KineticD's patented technology provides a continuous stream of backup data to a local server, the cloud or both, pausing while employee computers are in use and then resuming the backup as soon as the user's mouse is idle for more than 60 seconds. Some of the unique features of KineticD's award winning backup solutions include:
- Patented "Pause and Resume" that suspends the backup when the computer is in use, resuming when the user takes a break.
- Continues backup after interruption, whether at the beginning, middle or the end of a file; especially beneficial when backing up large database files such as Microsoft® Outlook™ and Intuit® QuickBooks™ to name a few.
- Stores multiple versions of all files, allowing businesses to restore older versions of an existing file, or recover a file that's been deleted.
- Data de-duplication that decreases data size requirements, saving time and money.
"Many organizations are not aware of the value proposition of continuous backup," said Jamie Brenzel, CEO, KineticD. "With KineticD's patented solution, employees are able to work without interruption, network administrators can focus their attention on other issues and business owners can relax with the knowledge that when they're online, KineticD is backing up their data."
"Implementing a secure, dependable backup system is one of those issues that many business owners face, but don't act on until the day they lose critical data," says Ian Grieve of Curbz Landscaping, Inc. "KineticD's ability to work in the background and continuously save our data not only saves us valuable time and money but more importantly, gives us peace of mind knowing that our data is safe, secure and available to us whenever we need it."
