RapidSwitch offers free cloud backup for World Backup Day


RapidSwitch, part of leading UK cloud company iomart Group plc, is celebrating World Backup Day by giving away 10GB of FREE premium cloud backup space with every server ordered.

World Backup Day takes place this Sunday, March 31, with the aim of spreading awareness about the need to keep data safe in this increasingly digital age.

RapidSwitch is offering 10GB of its RapidStore cloud backup free with any dedicated server ordered from now until Tuesday 2 April.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, says, "Data loss costs businesses millions of pounds a year. Whether you are a large or small business and dealing with financial records, customer databases or media files you need an effective backup plan."

RapidSwitch provides data assurance solutions such as Continual Data Protection, including high-availability multi-site backup plans, with products that also provide the flexibility to control backup schedule plans and retention periods. RapidStore offers infinite backup retention, unlimited backup space and lightning fast backup speed all managed through a dedicated control panel. It can be implemented on servers and PCs anywhere in the world and has a graphical interface for analytical reporting.

RapidSwitch's Maidenhead data centre is part of iomart Group's UK network of ISO 27001 and 9001 accredited data centres.

Neil Christie continues, "Being part of the iomart network means that we can safeguard your data even more effectively because of our ability to archive and restore it to different servers in different locations through multi-site disaster recovery plans."
