Swiss Safe Storage: get an unbreakable vault for your valuable data




Swiss Safe Storage, the secure online storage
To be effective, a true backup needs a second set of backup data to be saved in a different location, a delocalized copy.  Studies shows that less than one percent of companies actually do their off-site copies on a regular basis.
When asked to talk on that delicate subject, most managers complain on the complexity of the task to justify the enormous risk taken. With Swiss Safe Storage from InfoForm SA, the task can be entirely automated.  Your valuable data is backed up even without human intervention.


Swiss Safe Storage, for business and individuals: lend storage space on our  dedicated, fault tolerant, high availabilityTérasafe Pro systems and upload your sensible data securely thanks to our secure backup software which uses SSH protocol to crypt data during upload.  Choosing Swiss Safe Storage let you minimize risks in case of natural disaster, robbery or warfare. Be smart, think Swiss Safe Storage!

Some years ago, when a fire completely burned the Crédit Lyonnais principal place of business in Paris, several IT managers risked their lives jumping into the burning building to save backup tapes: there was no off-site copies!

Don't risk your life, don't risk your company, choose Swiss Safe Storage!

Swiss Safe Storage backups best practices
Some advice to maximize your experience backing up your data to Swiss Safe Storage servers:
  • Never back up individual system files or folders. In most cases, your operating system contains tons of files which take forever to be collated and compacted. In addition, this is useless as such an operating system backup will almost always fail to be restored as a working environnement. If you want to back up or archive your operating system, please consider  creating a disk image using dedicated software like Acronis True Image or Norton Ghost. You may then backup or archive the image to your Swiss Safe Storage account. Repeat operation every month or after successfully installing new software.
  • On the same purpose, do NOT back up your program files, excepting workstations under Mac OS X, this type of backup does not allow to restore your applications. Moreover, you generally should have the original CDs allowing you to reinstall your applications at will.
  • Please, keep somewhere and under seals (bank, safe,...), a copy of the passwords you used to encrypt your files.  Loss of your passwords is often synonymous with the loss of your data.
  • Employees of InfoForm SA will never ask you for your passwords neither by email, neither by telephone, nor by another means.  Also do not reveal them to anybody.
  • Incremental backups take place to keep successive versions of your files.  Before subscribing for a larger space, you can initilize your backup again, thus gaining space (attention, the first backup after this operation can be long, because all the files must be recopied).
  • If you have several workstations connected to a server, you will gain time by gathering all files to be backed up on the server.
  • Organize your data in a hierarchy of clearly named folders.  Human brain is better able to locate information in a hierarchy composed of several levels than in a folder containing hundreds of disparate files.
  • Clearly name your files, avoiding incomprehensible abbreviations.  You are not limited any more to 8 characters today !
