Business continuity planning is vital for any organisation, and with modern businesses depending so heavily on their IT services to facilitate their business functions, the need to securely back up and quickly restore your IT systems and data has never been more pressing.

Traditional legacy backup tools can take hours or even days to meet recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives. Cloud-based backup and recovery can provide improved response times, but you still need the right comprehensive solution to meet virtual infrastructure management needs and protect mission-critical virtual machines (VMs) from both hardware and software failure.
At Haslenet we offer a variety of data backup and business continuity services to meet the needs of almost any sized business – from simple online backups of your most important files and folders to complete business continuity services that can restore your vital systems and services in a matter of seconds. Our solutions make extensive use of cloud storage technologies and dedicated on-site appliances in order to mitigate the risks and management overhead associated with removable storage based backup solutions (tapes and external hard drives). All cloud storage is based in UK data centres.
Online Backup of Files and Folders
Ideal for small businesses that require a secure, off-site location for their essential data sets. This flexible, cost-effective solution allows you to choose exactly which data you need to back up and only pay for the capacity that you use. Backups can be performed from as many supported devices as you need and your data can be restored to the original device or to any other supported device very easily when required.
Server and PC Backups
A more advanced solution for small-to-medium sized organisations that require complete backups of operating systems, applications and data. Fixed monthly pricing per device with unlimited backup space, up to 10 year data retention and no additional per GB charges give you complete control of your costs. Includes Exchange, SQL, Hyper-V, vSphere and bare metal disk image plugins at no extra cost, making it ideal for server backups.
For organisations requiring quicker restore times and those with slower internet connections or larger data sets, optional on-site appliances are available. Appliances range in size from 1TB – 4TB and function as the primary backup and restore location. Backups are automatically synchronised from the appliance to the cloud giving you the perfect combination of on-site performance and off-site security without the headache of managing removable media.
From £35/server/month; £10/PC/month
Total Business Continuity
Designed for the business that simply cannot afford to lose its vital systems, data and applications, even for short periods, this is the industry leading business continuity solution. In addition to hybrid-cloud backup features, this solution provides the business with virtualisation technologies build in to both the on-site appliance and the cloud that enable your business to resume operations in a very short space of time, even in the event of a major natural disaster.
In the event of a single system failure a virtual clone of your device can be spun up on your on-site appliance using the latest backup set. Should a disaster strike your entire site, all of your virtualised devices can be spun up in the cloud – giving you access to your systems from any alternate location. Virtual devices can be spun up from any backup data set within your configured data retention period (up to 7 years), and backup intervals can be configured to a granularity of as little as 5 minutes.
This truly is an enterprise class business continuity solution that allows your organisation to continue operating with minimum disruption, even under the most extreme conditions.
