What if worrying about disaster recovery became a thing of the past?

Use a cloud-based backup solution to keep your business running smoothly.

Back up servers and laptops alike

Multiple possibilities

Full image backups ensure you have everything backed up in one place. Incremental backups let you safeguard all the important changes since your last full backup.
Versioning gives you full revision control so you can have everything up and running again quickly if something happens.

Supported devices and applications

Everything important for your business can be protected with Cloud Backup. Of course, smartphones, tablets, and laptops are a must to protect your day-to-day operations.
We also know how important your infrastructure is, so virtual machines (VMs), servers, ESXi, Hyper-V, and Virtuozzo hosts are all supported. So are SQL Server, Exchange Server, and Active Directory. Cloud Backup works for both physical and virtual servers.

Set it up, sit back, and relax

Unattended agent installation

Cloud Backup needs to establish a connection with the server you want to protect. This happens using a piece of software, or agent, that you install on your server. The agent confirms the data source for the backup console, ensuring your data gets backed up properly.
Download the backup agent from the cloud panel, copy it to your server, then execute it. It's as simple as that. Alternatively, if you provision a server after purchasing Cloud Backup, you can have the agent installed on the server during setup.

Granular scheduling

You get full control over the number and types of backups created, when and how often they are made, how long they are stored, and how compressed they are. The only surprise is how easy it is to do all of this without maintaining physical backups all the time.

Get back up and running in seconds

Minimize downtime

Downtime is money, so you can't afford to spend too long getting back up and running. Cloud Backup can have you back online in seconds by loading your Linux or Windows backup into a virtual machine. You will stay functional while the hardware gets everything sorted out.

Flexible data recovery

Whether it's a quick rollback to a working version or a complete data transfer from a burned-out piece of hardware to a new one, Cloud Backup gives you the flexibility to recover exactly what you need, when you need it most.

The technical stuff

So you're interested, but you want to see some of the finer details before you make your decision?


Protect your backups so only you have the key with at-source AES 256 encryption and personal passwords. SSL ciphers are also used to secure the data transfer.


A further level of protection is the activity log, so you know no matter how many users have admin access, you will always be able to see who was doing what.

Data compression

Make the most of your backup storage by compressing data at the backup source. You can choose to compress your data a little, a lot, or not at all depending on your needs.
