Cloud Backup FAQ

The 3-2-1 rule relating to backups is as follows:

1. Keep at least three copies of your data.

2. Keep the backed-up data on two different storage types, viz. attached disk as well as data centre / cloud.

3. Keep at least one copy of the data offsite.

Not at all! All services run month-to-month.

Castlerock partner with Acronis Cloud to provide an Enterprise Cloud Backup Solution.

Backup as many devices as you’d like. We don’t limit the number of devices you can backup.

Yes, bandwidth usage can be limited for each backup plan.

For servers, it’s advisable to back up the entire server at least once per day. This ensures that you’ll always be able to restore either individual files located within the backup or, in the event of a total disaster, you can restore the entire server to the most recent backup.

For workstations, this is entirely dependent on your personal preference as well as the cloud storage plan you’ve purchased. If you’ve gone ahead with a large volume of data, you could just go ahead and protect the entire machine. Otherwise, if you want to configure backups in a granular fashion, select the files and folders that are most important to you.

‘Local’ refers to backups where the backup destination was specified as a disk attached to your physical computer or server OR to a location on your network. ‘Cloud’ storage refers to the storage you’re making use of in our data centre.
