Within Newfoundland and Labrador, there is a growing demand for online backup solutions which automate disaster recovery by taking data off-site through the Internet. Many people believe that backing up data through the cloud is cheaper, better and more secure than other traditional backup methods.
However, many companies have concerns about finding the right backup provider for their IBM Servers — including iSeries and AS/400 — within the Canadian region of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Traditionally, backing up IBM servers would’ve meant switching tapes every day, and then taking them to a remote storage facility. This adds a lot of manual labour and added risk to the backup process.
If a disaster were ever to hit Newfoundland, recovering data from an online iSeries backup service or online AS/400 backup service can often be much faster and more reliable than performing these types of restorations manually.
Within the small business and consumer markets, there are many online backup providers to choose from. But businesses that rely heavily on rugged IBM servers for their critical applications have special requirements when it comes to their Newfoundland backup options.
They need to work with a company that understands the unique needs of Canadian businesses, and also has the technical knowledge to properly protect IBM iSeries servers and IBM AS/400 servers.
Another thing that companies must consider when backing up their Labrador or Newfoundland IBM servers is practicality. They need to find a single-source provider that can handle all of their servers — including IBM, Novell, Exchange, Oracle and many others.
