| How it Works
Return On Investment (ROI)
The advanced features of Remote Data Backups provide you with an excellent
Return On Investment, as testimonials from hundreds of satisfied clients attest.
If our automated backup service can save you or your employees even 1-2
hours a month, it more than pays for itself even without having to save you from a
catastrophic data loss.
Manual Backup Costs
On average, an in-house IT person will cost you about $20 - $30 per hour.
Once you include benefits, workmen's compensation, unemployment, taxes, etc. they can cost
you well over $30 per hour... much more than the cost of our automated 10 GB Server Backup. Even a minimum wage worker will cost you
over $10 an hour and the average administrative person will cost $15 to $30 an hour. Just
because they already work for you doesn't mean that they don't actually cost you money for
every hour they spend on data backups, system restore or downtime.
The average outsourced IT person will cost you $45 to $145 per hour and it does
not take too many hours to quickly exceed the costs of an entire year of Remote
Data Backups service with just one issue. If your computer were to crash and you
had to hire an onsite computer repair person to reinstall everything (let alone recover
your data), how much do you think it would cost you? More than Remote Data Backups?
How Remote Data Backups saves you time and money
- NO hardware to purchase, such as tape, Zip, Jaz, CD-RW, or portable drive.
Just the drives can cost more than many years of our offsite data backup service.
- NO expensive backup media to buy.
You need a minimum of 5 backup tapes or disks for a Monday-Friday rotation,
preferably 9 to accomodate a week 1-4 offsite rotation. Tapes cost $50-100 each, so you
would spend $250-900 in backup media alone... more than a year of our automated offsite
data backup solution.
- NO I.T. time to install & set up.
Whether you employ in-house or outsourced IT person, it will cost you money to install
your backup drives... correctly! We'll walk end-users through setup and show them
how to use our advanced features.
- NO administration & recovery costs.
You NEED to rotate your tapes, a manual process that takes at least 5 minutes a
day, which equals 1 hour every 2 weeks, 25 hours a year. At $20 - $30 an hour, that's $500
- $700 a year spent just on tape rotation... more than several years of our automated
backup service. Our recovery is with free, with 24/7 support if you need it.
- NO need to take your tapes offsite or pay for offsite storage.
This tedious and time-consuming process rarely gets done regularly. And after all, don't
you have better things to worry about when Remote Data Backups does it automatically?
Also, you can stop paying extra for safety deposit or secure offsite storage, or storing
them insecurely in your car, purse or nightstand.
- Minimize employee & system downtime.
For every hour your employees are waiting on a system or application downtime equals money
spent and opportunities lost. How much do you lose for each hour you cannot conduct
business? Hundreds? Thousands?
- Increase employee productivity.
Empower your employees to quickly and easily recover their own data, restore their own
systems, and access their data remotely. No more waiting on an IT person to arrive and
- Most importantly, never suffer a data loss!
Remote Data Backups is the most reliable data backup and recovery solution. Face it, data
loss happens. Consider the consequences:
- If you lost it all, how much would it cost you?
- How much would it cost you to recover or recreate all your data?
- How much would it cost you if you couldn't recreate it?
- Could you recover?
- Would it cost more than Remote Data Backups?
- Won't it be nice knowing your data is safely stored
at two mirrored data centers automatically every night with no human intervention?
