Availability Solutions For Every Business

Disaster recovery and backup strategies are business imperatives. Remember, it’s never too early to implement effective solutions but it can be TOO LATE.

We understand that each organisation is different and we have a portfolio of technology partners that enable us to design the most basic or complex cloud Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solutions to meet all of your disaster recovery strategies.

We have designed and implemented Veeam, VDP and NAKIVO solutions across VMware, Hyper-V, open source hyper-visors and real server infrastructures for SMEs to large corporations here in Botswana. We are provide a ‘hands on’ white-glove service and work with you to ensure we deliver the most cost effective, secure and tested cloud backup and recovery solutions.

We can assist in determining your business objectives for choosing a replication or backup strategy and in giving you a clear understanding of the differences between disaster recovery and business continuity, between full back-ups, incremental backups and differential backups.

Our cloud backup and recovery services all operate from our own secure Botswana based data-center with 24/7 support and unrivaled local technical expertise.

Global Data Wars

This is one of the best live cyber attack maps it shows the extent to which our data and systems are constantly under attack, it’s dangerous out there. Your business, your systems and your data are constantly at risk from all kinds of  automated malware and ransom-ware attacks which are endlessly evolving and spreading across the entire globe and this includes to our businesses here in Botswana.

Our advice: if you take your business seriously you must take the backup and recoverability of your data and systems just as seriously, backup everything, replicate the critical.
