SMART Backup & Disaster Recovery

Threats to your data are everywhere; viruses, hardware failures and even internal end user error. With the importance of business data ever increasing, keeping that data safe and accessible is an never-ending process.

Platinum’s advanced continuous data protection (CDP) technology captures every version of a file that has been saved to your hard drive. With CDP, even if your hard drive crashes completely after you have worked for a full day without invoking backup manually yourself, the saved copy of your working file will still be intact on the backup server. It provides a highly dependable means of real-time, continuous data protection for servers, desktops and laptops effortlessly and transparently without any human intervention.

The virtue of critical data is so that these additional copies can be restored as originals if and when data loss occurs. With Platinum SMART, data will be copied, compressed, 128-bit/256-bit encrypted and finally uploaded to a remote server located off site through Secure Socket Layers (SSL). The backed up data are 100% restorable to their original formats, when needed, by simply clicking a few buttons. In addition, Platinum SMART provides another level of protection by allowing replication of the remote backup server(s) to another remote location. This gives double protection that cannot be provided by extra backup software alone.

Platinum offers two backup options based on your company’s and end user needs.

Platinum SMART Enterprise

SMART Enterprise is an onsite device for server environments offer backups in 60 minute intervals to catch any changes in data. At night the changes in data are then off-sited to one of Platinum’s data centers to safe storage. Each time a backup is captured, it is 256-bit encrypted and then encrypted again before it’s transported off-site. Each backup is time stamped for easy file restoration, down to emails or calendar items.

In the event a server hardware component fails, the SMART Enterprise device can be virtualized to operate as that server while continuing to backup the data on your other servers. Because we backup not only the data but the operating system and applications, in a catastrophic event, end users can access data and continue to work from any site with internet access.

Platinum SMART Basic

Everything from files to favorites to pictures on desktops and laptops can be backed up using SMART Basic. It has an easy to use interface for including new files in backups or manually invoking backups. Data restoration is quick and can be done by end users or by calling Platinum technicians.
