Benefits

Software and Setup

Setup

Our backup wizard makes backing up your data simple. We offer hassle-free, one-click setup for simpler applications, like home computers, as well as custom data backup for small business and enterprise level markets who may require a more selective backup approach. The Nordic Backup data backup experts are always on hand to assist with setup to ensure all of your important data is covered.

No interruptions

We believe backup software shouldn’t disrupt you or your business by slowing down your system, or spamming you with alerts. Rather than accessing your files directly to perform a backup, we use Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service, or VSS, to take a snapshot of your data. This allows us to backup the snapshot without disturbing you while you go about your business.

Our backup can run on any kind of computer and can securely backup any kind of data automatically without requiring any input from the user.

Our backup runs quietly in the background and sends you an email to let you know how it’s doing so you never worry. There are no tapes or hard drives to rotate and all your backups can be managed from our website – no expert required!

Support

We treat your data as if it were our own. If you ever need help recovering something, or you’re not sure if your data has been backed up correctly, we can offer help and answer any questions you may have.

Cloud Storage

Limitless Cloud Storage

Our Limitless Cloud Storage gives you unlimited storage for all of your files–regardless of file type. Nordic Backup Home gives you unlimited storage for all of your backup data on your personal computer for a flat annual rate.

Nordic Backup Small Business provides comprehensive file backup for unlimited computers, file servers, and network shares.

Continuous Backup

Our continuous backup feature will backup files the instant they are created or modified. Continuous backup is great for computers with users working on files throughout the day, constantly backing up new files and updating existing ones. The busier you are, the busier we are.

Universal Backup

Whether you’re backing up servers, databases, or any other type of data, we have a backup plan that’s perfectly suited to you. It doesn’t matter if you are a large, all-Unix enterprise, a small business with PCs and Macs or if you have a mix of Windows, Linux and Apple computers and servers, you still only need one backup solution: Nordic Backup is universal.

No matter what kind of database software you use, Nordic Backup will automatically backup your databases, while they are online, with zero downtime.

Redundant Local Backup

For many homes and businesses, a second on-site copy of your backup, or multiple off-site copies would be desirable. Our Local Backup feature allows you to backup your data not only to Nordic Backup, but to any storage or network device you specify, at no additional cost.

Now you can leverage both the increased speed of restoring files from a local device and the increased availability and protection of off-site backup.

NAS & Network Share Backup

Many businesses rely on file servers or network-attached storage (NAS) devices to provide easy, centralized storage for all of the company’s shared files and folders. Some of these devices may have some fault tolerance built-in, but none are immune to failure and data corruption, and an automatic backup of network shares is essential, especially when all the company data is stored in once place.

Nordic Backup displays NAS devices and shared folders in our easy to use system browser, which is a part of our simple backup wizard, so selecting your network folders for backup is as simple as selecting a local folder on your computer.

Exchange Server & Mail-Level Backup

A primary asset to any business is their email, and lost mail needs to be able to be recovered rapidly. Our backup works with all versions of Microsoft Exchange, and can not only backup Exchange Databases, but we can also backup and restore individual emails, attachments, and appointments all with zero downtime on the Exchange server.

Data Recovery

Cloud Recovery

No matter what happens to your data, it’s simple for you to get it all back in just a few clicks. Browse and download your files from any computer using the Nordic Backup software, or from our website.

Our backup file browser makes it simple to restore a single file or folder, or view the data that was on your computers from a previous date to restore a previous version of your files, or download all your files at once.

Servers backed up with Nordic Backup Pro Plus can be virtualized and brought online within a 24 hour service window from the first request for the managed recovery. Servers backed up with Nordic Backup Pro Preferred are pre-emptively virtualized and mirrored daily so that there is no waiting before you can use your cloud backup server.

Version History

Having only a backup from yesterday is the bare minimum, and for most situations, is not good enough. Typically people don’t realize they have corrupt, infected, or missing files for several days. Our previous file version retention allows for extended time between when a file is deleted or changed from your computer and when it is modified or replaced in your backup.

Nordic Backup Server Pro’s retention is unlimited and adjustable. We can retain deleted files or previous versions of files for as long as your business needs.

Image & Bare Metal Restore

With Nordic Backup, you can create a Windows system state or server image backup in just a few simple steps, or go with the award-winning ShadowProtect bare metal backup with universal recovery capability. ShadowProtect lets you recover to any physical or virtual environment, or you can make us your secondary site and let us recover your server to our cloud.

Virtual Server Backup

Servers backed up with Server Pro Plus can be virtualized and brought online within a 24 hour service window from the first request for the managed recovery. Servers backed up with Server Pro Preferred are preemptively virtualized and mirrored daily so that there is no waiting before you can use your cloud backup server.

Nordic Backup supports all versions of VMware and Hyper-V for comprehensive, live image backups of virtual machines with zero downtime. Your virtual server backups can be recovered to any hypervisor, or make us your secondary site and let us recover your virtual server to our cloud.

Security

End-to-End Encryption

When you use Nordic Backup, all of your files are securely encrypted on your computer before they are uploaded over the internet. Privacy comes first with Nordic Backup.

Military Grade Security

All of our encryption options are widely considered to be unbreakable. Without your private encryption key, none of your backup data can be recovered by anyone, ever. Easily set your custom, private encryption key by going step by step through our simple set up wizard. Go with our default key settings, or you can choose between the ever-popular AES encryption, Twofish, or Triple DES encryption — all commonly used by militaries, governments, financial institutions and other trusted internet service providers worldwide.

World Class Data Centers

At Nordic Backup, we don’t compromise on security. Your files are stored in multiple data centers around the world on redundant servers with redundant storage systems. All facilities, hardware and procedures are engineered to exceed industry regulations to ensure that your data gets the best protection possible.

All of our data centers are equipped with multiple levels of access control, including alarms, armed guards, video surveillance, gated perimeter, locked server cabinets, security checkpoints with biometric scanners, uninterruptible power supplies, diesel backup power generators, redundant cooling and multiple redundant gigabit internet connections.

Regulatory Compliance

Nordic Backup provides HIPAA compliant data backup for healthcare providers. Because we provide end-to-end encryption, the data provided cannot be read or compromised during transit, allowing your patients’ private medical information to remain private. All medical information will be safely stored in our secure, world-class data centers, where it will be safe from natural disaster, theft and loss.

Each year the Nordic Backup data centers complete an SSAE 16 Type 2 audit, which is the strictest audit of its kind for service organization controls and certifies that year after year our facilities and procedures are top-notch.

If you are a healthcare professional and require a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) to meet your HIPAA compliance, get in touch with us at info@nordic-backup.com and we will create an agreement for you.
