With the advent of Leopard (OS X 10.5) 4 years ago, Apple has made it much less likely to lose your data by giving us Time Machine. As long as you have an external hard drive of almost any kind and you can connect it to your computer, then you have no worries right?!
Sadly, we still see many clients coming in fraught with anxiety about losing their data when there are ways that we can help eliminate this situation. There are solutions for EVERY budget.
Here at Mac Outpost we practice what we preach. Each of our individual terminals is backed up using the Time Machine Utility to external hard drives. Our servers are in turn backed up nightly to our remote, colocation center.
So if you are a student, employed from home or a parent whose data is irreplaceable a great option for you would be any of the external drives that we carry here at the store.
We also offer professional back up services for business. We have both the remote back up that is run nightly starting at $99 /month upon assessment by our systems administrator. This is a perfect option for offices that deal mainly in documentation and smaller data collections.
Are you a Graphic Designer with years and years of image data? Busy Dentistry Practice with a horde of x-ray images you couldn’t bare to be without? We have solutions for you too! It’s our Swapped Backup service which also starts at $99 /month pending a professional assessment. This service has us come directly to you to manage the back up of your data!
The options are endless and sometimes this leads to confusion. This is where we come in! If you have ANY questions at all please do not hesitate to contact Mac Outpost where we can help you decide on what backup service will work best for you!
