Nimbus Recover provides a level of service that goes beyond a basic file and folder back-up and recovery. Our industry-leading Cloud services are delivered from our Tier 3+ data centres and provide rapid, secure, reliable access to your essential business data and applications; as and when required.

Our intelligent back-up solution ensures efficient use of network and storage resources to deliver short back-up and recovery times. Consolidating multiple data sources into a central, master dataset which is compressed and deduped, minimises data storage requirements without compromising the integrity or security of your data.

Backed-up data is replicated, stored and managed independently in two separate databases, with frequent, automated data checks on each separate database to ensure ongoing integrity, resilience and availability of data.

Our intelligent Disaster Recovery solution uses continuous data protection giving peace of mind that if the worst happens minimal data will be lost. Thanks to a quick and simple 3-click recovery process, users are up and running in the shortest time possible.

Protecting your data is a top priority and comes in the form of both physical and virtual security in the ONI data centre. Access is limited to authorised users and your data is encrypted both at rest and while in motion across the network during back-up and recovery.
