There are endless reasons to lose data! Businesses have encountered such losses in the past, and will surely face many more in the future.
Backing up your data is critical for keeping your business up and running when a data disaster strikes. But where are you backing up your data? Your data must be backed up to a different device, in a different location from the master copies, to avoid data losses from disasters. A cloud solution is apt to protect your personal and small business data to an offsite location. But choosing an online service to upload large data is quiet challenging resulting in bad performance of your device. This is because data transfer eats up your bandwidth. To overcome such problems, IDrive came up with IDrive Express™ – a shuttle service for data transfer to the cloud and restore using physical shipment of temporary storage devices.
IDrive Express™ helps you to protect large data with no bandwidth utilization for initial transfer, making it an attractive option for metered internet users.
How Does It Work?
On your request, IDrive sends you a hard drive to which you can transfer files using local storage option via the IDrive application, and ship the hard drive back to IDrive for free. On receiving the hard drive back, your data will be uploaded to your cloud account, within a week or less. Once the data is uploaded to the cloud, you can continue backing up the changes made to your data using incremental feature.
On your request, IDrive saves the latest version of your backed up data from the cloud to a storage device that will be shipped to you. You can plug in the USB device into your computer for restoring the data using your IDrive application. The storage device must then be sent back to IDrive after the data is restored.
The Express service ensures the following
IDrive Express™ is a free cloud service, 1X a year for Personal plans and 3X a year for Business plans, subsequent to which a nominal charge will apply.
The return shipping of our storage device to IDrive is absolutely free for customers within the US. This service includes free return shipping and is available in the USA, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Australia and the UK.
IDrive has military grade security measures to ensure that your data is well protected from all unauthorized sources. In IDrive, your entire data is transferred and stored using 256-bit AES encryption during transfer and storage, with an additional option for private key. The private key is a unique key that you can assign during your account creation. This key is nowhere saved on IDrive servers; therefore, the privacy of your account is restricted to you!
IDrive’s data centre is located in the US with world-class facility for physical security of your data. Your data in IDrive’s cloud undergoes periodic audits to check for known application and service vulnerabilities to ensure complete security of your network. Not just that, all the data backed up to your cloud resides on RAID configured storage arrays, for redundancy in case of disk failures. So there is hardly any chance of losing your data in IDrive.
Protecting large data is no more a difficult task! Sign up with IDrive and stay protected.
