BT has launched a new server back-up service for SMEs that want to do away with manual data tape back-ups.
Using a broadband connection, companies can encrypt and store business data at a secure offsite location managed by BT and service partner ImperaData.
The Datasure product runs continuously in the background and automatically backs up server data each time a file is created or changed.
"Most SMEs do not have extensive IT departments, so we've designed a product to take away the headache of manual tape back up," said Graham French, marketing manager at BT Business.
Datasure allows firms to retrieve the whole server or individual files, as well as archive files for up to seven years.
The product carries a one-off set up charge of £475 and then costs from £95 a month depending on levels of data stored on the customer's server. The required broadband connection and monthly line rental is extra.
The service supports Windows, Linux or Sun Solaris operating systems and protects all databases and file types.
BT is targeting companies with up to 200 employees or those with satellite offices rarely visited by IT teams.
