With the help of Hood Sweeney’s Disaster Recovery service you could have access to your business data, even wirelessly and remotely, within hours.

If your system were to suffer a total loss, we could:

  • Restore your data on our system so you could access via the internet to keep your business running until your infrastructure is working again
  • Restore the system at your premises either by site visit or remote access; or
  • Host your data on our system indefinitely.

As a South Australian business, we can offer you more than just virtual support. From our base on South Terrace, our experts can be there to solve problems and guide you through the nightmare.

How Hood Sweeney was totally prepared for something totally unexpected.

Few could have predicted the unprecedented weather anomalies of Wednesday 28 September 2016, nor the cascading consequences as South Australia’s power grid shut down in an automated response that rapidly plunged the entire state into a state of emergency.

As the population braced for chaos and nightfall descended on a darkened city, those in charge of essential systems began to realise the far-reaching consequences of having had their sensitive electronics effectively unplugged without warning.

With power returning in the early hours of Thursday 29 September, Hood Sweeney’s Information Technology team activated an emergency response effort hailed by our clients as a shining beacon in a time of literal darkness.

By utilising Hood Sweeney’s in-house systems; in event of disaster, you have the power to restore servers and continue running your business.

With Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) you can have your site up within hours in comparison to days or even weeks whilst waiting for replacement hardware.

With Hood Sweeney DRaaS, you’ll recieve:

Hosted offsite backups.

Get your backups offsite to a hosted cloud repository through a secure SSL connection with no additional licensing required.

Complete visibility and control.

Access and recover data in hosted backup repositories directly from the backup console; track cloud repository consumption and receive reminders for hosted storage renewals.

A modern backup architecture.

End-to-end encryption.

Rest easy by encrypting all data at source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN Acceleration.
