Backup & Replication - Data security | HDUK

Backup & Replication means that all data is backed up and then replicated (copied) to our secondary data centre once every hour.

Hosted Services backup process

  • We keep the last fourteen days’ snapshot backups as standard or you can upgrade to our Premium Snapshot Backup service which takes a snapshot of your data on an hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis then retains them to provide rolling recovery points from which we can restore your data.
  • A copy of your flat data files can also be replicated to your premises using our Backup-to-Site service for additional peace of mind.
  • With your business data never leaving the secure hosted desktop environment, there is no risk of it being stolen on a portable device such as a laptop.
  • A hosted desktop offers unparalleled data safety and security, which cannot be matched by a normal desktop PC set up.
