Backup several gigabytes of business data to cloud in less than a week!

January 22, 2020

Time-effectiveness and network dependencies are among the biggest challenges faced by businesses when backing up large volumes of data to cloud. The large-scale data growth across SMBs and enterprises in the last few years has only compounded this challenge. The good news is, the IDrive Express solution lets you backup gigabytes of data in less than a week with zero dependencies on your Internet bandwidth!

IDrive Express removes the hassle out of large-scale cloud backup by shipping the data to the servers in a temporary storage device – or devices, depending on the size of your data. IDrive will ship the device(s) to you and you can backup your data to them using the Local Backup option. Then ship the device to the return address provided. Once the technical team receives the device, your data will be uploaded to cloud directly. The entire process can be completed in less than a week! Your online backup data can then be updated regularly through incremental backups.

You can avail the IDrive Express service for free once a year if you are an IDrive Personal user and thrice a year if you are an IDrive Business user.
