The globalisation of Information Technology necessitates a lucrative Business Strategy that will provide organisations a leading edge in the global market.

In modern Business Data and Information is considered a strategic asset that can give or take the cutting edge in market and/or competitor advantage. About ICT (Pty) Ltd offers Clients a Data Back-up and Disaster Recovery Solution that efficiently secures data and enhances system recovery after critical failures.

The About ICT’s Back-up and Disaster Recovery Solution provides real-time automated disk backup, disk imaging, file level backup and bare metal restore for Servers and Workstations.

The solution creates an image of the entire system state. This includes the operating system, business applications, user settings, drivers and data and gives administrators the framework to completely rebuild a downed system in less than an hour.

Full or incremental Back-up’s is scheduled regularly or on demand through the intuitive management console. Central management allows administrators to monitor the entire Back-up process from a single Web-based interface console regardless of the physical location of each system.

Incremental Back-up’s are conducted efficiently on reliable disk media, shortening the Back-up cycle dramatically. The efficient process has a low footprint, reducing the impact it has on systems performance. Automatic discovery technology ensures that all systems on the network are reliably Backed-up, leaving no systems and no data unprotected.

The Back-up Solution works in the background without requiring a system shutdown or interruption to end users, making sure that all Servers and Workstations are always available.

Once a Back-up is created, replication technology can ensure that the images are automatically migrated to a safe and secure off-site facility, separated geographically from the main data centre. In case of a major data centre loss the backup images can be replicated to replacement equipment quickly to ensure that the business can get back up and running as fast as possible.

The Back-up and Disaster Recovery Solution is part of About ICT’s Automation Framework, giving the administrator the ability to deploy, configure, manage, monitor, secure, back-up and restore distributed systems from a single management console.
