Web hosting firm Fasthosts has launched an online backup service.
Fasthosts Online Back Up can be scheduled to create automatic back-ups so user's don't need to worry about remembering to manually back-up files as soon as they have been created. Furthermore, Fasthost's software analyses files marked for back-up so only incremental changes are uploaded the rather than the whole file. The web hosting company says this means bandwidth usage is kept to a minimum.
"Our new online back-up service can protect a business from the significant disruption and financial loss that can occur should the worse happen to their on-premise hardware," said Steve Holford, marketing director, Fasthosts.
"Fast transfer and automatic scheduling for back-ups now makes data protection effortless. Businesses of all sizes are now able to see that cloud-based services can lead them to become more dynamic and resilient".
The service is priced from £10 per month (excluding VAT) for 10GB of space.
