(Gawkwire) – Signetique, a leader in cloud and dedicated hosting services, today officially launched CloudStore, its cloud-based online backup service for SMEs. CloudStore is Signetique’s remote backup solution for businesses requiring an online backup service for their desktops, laptops and servers. CloudStore is compatible with most operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. According to Signetique, CloudStore can be used to back up virtually any form of data, including Microsoft Exchange databases and even individual Exchange mailboxes.
“Hard disk failures, accidental deletion and laptop thefts are some of the most common causes for data loss. CloudStore addresses these issues that affect data security in an affordable and easy-to-use solution,” said CEO of Signetique, Raymond Tan. “Customers, especially SMEs, will find CloudStore immensely vital to protecting their data and should form the nucleus of their disaster recovery efforts. This is especially good news for security-conscious customers who are wary of committing their precious data to free, mass-market solutions that are commonly available today.”
Among others, CloudStore features a flexible scheduling system, including continuous data protection, military-grade 448-bit Blowfish encryption, lossless compression, incremental backups and support for bare metal recovery. Signetique also provides an optional CloudStore seeding service where the initial data dump can be backed up offline.
“We understand from customers that backing up the initial large block of data to a remote server is challenging as it may mean transmitting gigabytes or even terabytes of data over the Internet and that can take days, if not weeks,” Kenneth Tan, COO Signetique. “The CloudStore seeding service removes that barrier as our customers can back up that data in their office, have it couriered to us and thereafter uploaded to their accounts. Once done, CloudStore will incrementally backup new data online. The CloudStore seeding service not only saves time, bandwidths and money, our customers can have the absolute confidence that their data is secure as it is encrypted at source.”
Some of the features of CloudStore are:
Supports Windows, Mac, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris operating systems
Supports MSQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle databases
Large files support so that interrupted transfers will continue from where it was left off
Multiple recovery points to restore business applications instantly to a specific point in time
Support for Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) for backing up Open Files in Windows
Backup to the mailbox level in Microsoft Exchange
Backup Active Directory and System State
Supports bare metal restoration (BMR)
Flexible scheduling, including Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
Supports P2V (physical to virtual server) migration
CloudStore is available in two editions: CloudStore for Business and CloudStore for Servers. CloudStore for Business caters to companies requiring backup of their laptops and desktops while CloudStore for Servers is suitable for companies requiring online backup service for their dedicated servers.
