Maintenance and Backup Plan
Ok so you use your computers every day? Are you making sure they are being maintained and your data backed up? Maybe your company is not in need of a regular IT guy....instead you just need some periodic maintenance and you need to be sure your data is safe and sound.
Our Maintenance and Backup Agreement plan is for you.
This is a very simple plan. You sign up for The Computer Doctors to perform periodic maintenance of your computers. This means we will clean and vacuum the system, checking internal connections, and also performing system tune-ups of the operating system, virus checking, optimization, and cleanup. This will help to keep your computer in good functioning condition. You pay quarterly for this agreement and must keep it for a minimum of one year but you get a great price and some extra benefits.
So for example, if something should break, we will fix it at a discounted rate.
And we include 200 GB of our premium off-site backup service at no extra charge. You just have to pay a one-time start up fee which covers the data center's charges for ingressing the first full backup, and an annual backup software licensing fee. If you need more storage than that, no problem, we just charge by the GB for the overage data.
This allows your company to backup important company data via the Internet to our secure data servers. When it comes to protecting our most valuable computer data, most of us know that we should be making regular backups because a system failure would cause unthinkable hardship. Even with this knowledge, many of us live through each day without a backup for our accounting data, customer databases, email, digital photos and other data that is important and irreplaceable.
Why do we put our data in fate's hands each day? Why do we work hard to create new information and not take an extra moment to make a backup copy...just in case? Maybe it's because most of us don't know what to backup, where to backup, what to use to make backups, or how to use them. The Computer Doctor’s Off-site Backup service will offer you the flexibility and peace of mind to sleep safely at night knowing your data is protected.

TIGHT SECURITY—256 BIT AES ENCRYPTION
It's VERY important that you don't try to use inexpensive consumer-grade/personal off-site backup solutions such as Carbonite Personal, MozyHome, etc. to perform "business" backup. These do not work with servers, SQL databases, or open files so you may be putting your business data at risk. Also the use of USB flash drives, external hard drives, DVD's etc. is NOT a safe form of business backup. These devices may fail at the worst possible moment, be lost or stolen, be overwritten by last night's backup (leaving you without previous days to resort to), or could be destroyed along with the computer if there is a fire, hurricane, or other disaster. Don't do it! Let's do it right!
OUR COSTS ARE LOWER BECAUSE OF THE METHOD WE BACKUP AND STORE YOUR DATA
The Computer Doctors off-site backup service uses advanced software to de-duplicate and tightly compress your data, then we transfer it securely using 256-bit AES encryption to our secure data centers. Competing plans that offer de-duplication often use hardware appliances to handle the process...an extra piece of equipment that you have to monitor and maintain. Let’s face it...most small companies do not have their own IT staff to manage all this stuff. They just want something that works and doesn’t cost a fortune! We make that happen for our customers every day.
The Computer Doctors use patented backup technology that allows the end-user to easily select files for backup and also to easily restore files when necessary. Advanced data de-duplication and compression are combined with high availability and capacity at a low cost per gigabyte.
BANDWIDTH—WHAT SETS OUR PLAN APART
Files are tightly compressed prior to transmission. With our backup plans, a backup of all added or changed files is made and compressed and sent to our secure data centers. The backup software incorporates advanced de-duplication. In other words, the software will find the parts of a large file that have changed and only transfer and save the changed parts, but the original parts are incrementally kept in case it becomes necessary to restore an earlier backup version, and the parts are automatically put back together during a restore. This requires much less time in transfer and much less total storage in the data center than keeping the complete copy of each file multiple times. Most of our competitors such as Barracuda® also offer advanced de-duplication, but many of them require you to buy specialized hardware appliances that you also have to maintain and monitor, and then charge high monthly fees for cloud storage. Our monthly cloud fees cost much less per GB than competing plans, and we do it with just the software! These plans can be set up to run after hours so they do not tie up your internet connection bandwidth during the day when you need it. The packages are transmitted securely over the internet to our data centers using 256-bit AES encryption. And you get an email notification with each backup that shows that it succeeded or failed (and so do we), so you can rest assured that everything is working.
NO TAPES TO MISHANDLE
NO STAFF OVERTIME
NO DRIVING TAPES OFFSITE
NO HUNTING FILES OR TAPES
NO ERRORS TO DECIPHER
EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS OF SUCCESS/FAILURE
RETAINAGE FOR LONG PERIODS
Our backup services are priced to leave you without any excuse to back up your files. 100 GB of backup storage is just $50 per month. We can offer these capacities at much lower cost than our competitors because of the way we use bandwidth and storage. By transferring and storing just the changes, it takes much less storage space and transfer time. But if that’s not enough, we can get you more!
Backup systems are automated, but they aren't foolproof. You still need assurance that your backup was received by the data center. What if you left your computer turned off that night, or your internet connection was off? You automatically get an email notification of the success (or failure) of each backup, and so do we. We will address any problems that you incur with your backups for you, leaving you peace of mind.
NEED EVEN MORE ROOM OR MORE OPTIONS?
No problem! We just charge for the extra GB.
**Many other capacities and options are available, and we can customize a solution to fit your needs.
