Backup Systems
Safeguarding your business information

We use a formal methodology to ensure consistent planning and performance across all our backup and restoration activities.

SABRE provides our clients with a comprehensive checklist of activities to follow for data backup and restoration.

SABRE is used to manage the distinct backup types :

Operational backups for routine, day-to-day recovery.
Disaster Recovery backups for recovery from a substantial disruption, ranging from loss of a single disk drive to an entire data centre or business premises.
Archival Retention backups for long-term protection of data which may be required at some time in the future for legal, regulatory, tax or business reasons And is equally applicable to on-site backups and web-based backups.
SABRE stands for :
Survival Rating Establish exactly what information is crucial to the ongoing survival of your business.
Analysis Plan the backup to provide the required level of security and efficiency.
Backup Perform and log the backup activities.
Restoration Perform periodic test restoration of data.
Evaluation After restoration, evaluate the restoration result to improve the analysis, backup and restoration procedures.
