PPS On-line Backup - Our Automatic Remote (off-site) Backup Service.
Take the worry out of your backups !!
Online, Automatic backup of your server's data to an off site, secure location... the PPS Server room at our office in Malaga.
we all know, you must take a copy of your backups off site, just in
case the unthinkable happens where all the on-site data is lost due to
a unforseen event, such as fire, theft, or electical surge
(lightening). Taking data off site is usually by means of Tapes, or
external hard drives. Tape
backups are often unreliable due to having lots of moving parts... tape
drive heads get dirty, the mechanisims wear out, and the tapes wear out
too. External hard drives are not very robust, and often can't
tollerate the knocks that they are often subject to. Replacing the tape
drive every few years, the tapes even more
frequently and even the external hard drives, can be very expensive. To
be totally secure, you also need
to rotate set of tapes or hard drives off site. This rotation is
dependant on a person remembering to take the media off site (and this
is often the weak link in the chain!)

impact on your monthly quotas. Even if your ISP does count this
