With more and more of our everyday activities being performed online, loss of data is a very real and continual risk to organisations all over the World. Backing up your data should be one of the most important considerations for your organisation.

Datahive™ is a fully managed backup service which safeguards your files & emails from loss, theft or corruption. Its simplicity, performance & encryption features deliver true peace of mind by protecting against human error as well as nullify criminal activity.

As an educational establishment, you must ensure that your data is backed up
securely and offsite, complying to government legislation.


Datahive™ for Education – How does it work?

Once the initial upload of data is completed, either via a secure network upload or encrypted seed load, Datahive™ will then only run incremental backups.

This means that only unique blocks of data that have changed since the previous backup job are uploaded. This greatly reduces the impact on valuable bandwidth and, increases the speed of the backup and recovery time.

You have the flexibility to schedule your backup job to run daily or, multiple times throughout the day, whatever meets your needs.

With VSL you can feel confident in the knowledge that all of your critical data is backed up across VSL’s secure data centres. Having your data replicated across our multiple sites, provides ultimate resilience – and peace of mind!
