Fasthosts launches online back up service

Storage space starts from £10 per month

Web hosting firm Fasthosts has launched an online backup service.

Fasthosts Online Back Up can be scheduled to create automatic back-ups so user's don't need to worry about remembering to manually back-up files as soon as they have been created. Furthermore, Fasthost's software analyses files marked for back-up so only incremental changes are uploaded the rather than the whole file. The web hosting company says this means bandwidth usage is kept to a minimum.

Data is uploaded over SSL to provide a secure transmission and is stored encrypted within a secure UK data centredata centre, while storage space is available in multiples of 10GB up to 1TB and Fasthosts says users can decrease or increase the size of their online storage space at any time.

"Our new online back-up service can protect a business from the significant disruption and financial loss that can occur should the worse happen to their on-premise hardware," said Steve Holford, marketing director, Fasthosts.

"Fast transfer and automatic scheduling for back-ups now makes data protection effortless. Businesses of all sizes are now able to see that cloud-based services can lead them to become more dynamic and resilient".

The service is priced from £10 per month (excluding VAT) for 10GB of space.
