Providing SMBs with the Tools for Fast, Easy Initial Backup with KineticSeed
TORONTO, March 20, 2012 –/BackupReview.info/– KineticD(TM), known for its cloud backup and data recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced KineticSeed, providing SMBs with the ability to backup large amounts of data from a USB or external drive and send it securely to KineticD’s SSAE 16 certified datacenter for instant protection.
Initially backing up hundreds of gigabytes of data to the Cloud can take hours or even days, a daunting prospect for companies contemplating a move to online backup. KineticD is offering a solution with KineticSeed, a new service for KineticCloud(TM) Backup customers.
With KineticSeed customers are now able to remotely backup an unlimited number of servers agentlessly via the network to a USB or external drive. Additionally, KineticSeed is encrypted with Blowfish 448 bank-grade encryption, eliminating the risk of data being compromised during shipping. After KineticD receives and uploads the data, only incremental backup blocks will be sent over the Internet, providing customers with clean, fast and easy ongoing backups to the Cloud. The same technology can also be used for data recovery in the event of an emergency or disaster.
Foresight Computers & Networking, Inc., a provider of network, server support and integration services, recently completed an initial install for one of its clients. The install required several hundred gigabytes of data from various sources be backed up to the cloud, including a Windows fileserver, Linux based Samba server and an MS SQL server. Using KineticSeed, Foresight was able to create a seed data set over just a few days. The initial data set was over 600GB, however, after applying the de-duplication and compression features of KineticCloud Backup, the final seed consumed only 220GB on disk. To transfer this data via the Internet would have taken several weeks, crippling the business by causing congestion on the live Internet connection.
For a limited time, KineticD is offering this service with no minimum data commitment or data limit and free of charge to its KineticCloud for Server customers and partners.
