Gauteng, South Africa, 4th March 2013 — / — Eirteic Consulting (Africa) have released an enterprise-class backup and archiving service for businesses and individuals requiring secure, offsite data backup and archive local to South Africa.

The service is focused mainly at individuals or businesses that for compliance or regulatory reasons may require all their company, financial, or customer data to be stored in the same country, whilst also creating a secure method of disaster recovery.

Automated and optionally encrypted backups are now possible using IBM Tivoli enterprise backup software, with the data securely stored on mission-critical servers in a tier-1 data centre in South Africa. Regular scheduled data backups can be combined with longer-term archiving of data which can either be stored locally or overseas depending on customer requirements, providing the ability for local deletion and space saving.

The service features a dedicated usage and billing portal based on FrontSafe technology from Denmark, which offers the capability for resellers and dealers to sign up and brand the portal as their own, thus selling to their customers directly and developing their own pricing structure.

Finally, it is possible for larger companies to implement the service at their own site, in their own data centres, using their own hardware.

The Internet Backup Solutions website is and any new signups until 1st June 2013 will receive 5% discount on the first three invoices.
