KINECTed Backup

Simple. Flexible. Worry-Free.

ViaWest’s KINECTed Backup is a comprehensive solution for file-level and VMDK backups. There are three service options available to meet your needs. Local KINECTed Backup services provide disk-to-disk backup within a data center. Remote KINECTed Backup provides for disk-to-disk backup to a geographically dispersed ViaWest data center. For customers requiring multiple site protection, the Dual Site KINECTed Backup provides geographic dispersion in two of ViaWest’s data centers. ViaWest’s KINECTed Backup uses best of breed EMC® Avamar® disk-to-disk technology, delivering fast, daily backups in a fraction of the time, when compared to other traditional methods.

Dramatic performance

ViaWest’s KINECTed Backup is based on disk-to-disk technology for fast, secure and reliable backups. Backup agent software processes and encrypts your data prior to transport, significantly reducing backup windows.

Simplified management

KINECTed Backup is an automated daily service. No manual intervention is required. You’ll save time while you’re saving money. ViaWest offers 14 and 30 day retention periods in all KINECTed Backup service levels. Tape vaulting services are also available.
