  • DCloud Archive add on for extended peace of mind.


Modern, powerful data protection

Backup and recovery: Ensure your data is backed up and recoverable on your terms with various backup and granular recovery options.

Automation: Prepare, test and orchestrate your Backup and Recovery strategy to protect critical applications.

Cloud portability: If the cloud is part of your data centre strategy, be prepared to back up and recover to, from and within the cloud for portability and cost savings.

Governance and compliance: Effectively manage your backups from virtual testing to ensure that copies of your data are recoverable, secure and compliant.


DCloud Backup for Servers

DCloud Backup for Servers can be configured to fit your needs, whether your servers are within our DCloud environment or at your premises. We hold three months’ worth of retention with multiple snapshots per day. Should your business data fall prey to a cyberattack, such as Malware or Ransomware, we can restore the information to the desired version.

When you select DCloud Backup for Servers, your business information is stored within an environmentally controlled and secure location, providing you with peace of mind.

For customers using DCloud Compute (as pictured below) the backup occurs directly from our servers to the dedicated storage infrastructure.

For customers using servers located at their own premises (as pictured below), we recommend including a local repository (NAS, DAS etc). This provides fast, local access to your primary backup should data be accidentally deleted or corrupted. The duration of your retention policy will be based on your needs and the capacity of the repository.

The local data is synchronised outside of business hours over the internet to our dedicated storage infrastructure at the data centre. The process is completely automatic and requires no intervention from you or your staff.

To avoid a major data transfer over the internet, Diamond IT takes a full backup of your server(s), referred to as the “base image” onto a portable disk which is physically transported to the data centre. The DCloud Backup solution then sends only incremental changes over the internet using advanced data compression and de-duplication technologies. The backup is readily transferred over most Internet links, including ADSL.

DCloud Archive

Diamond Cloud (DCloud) Archive is a secure and scalable solution that allows you to retain and store information for up to 7 years, including quarterly and yearly snapshots. A valuable add on to our DCloud Backup solution, DCloud Archive is ideal for organisations that require retention beyond the standard backup regime for compliance purposes.

DCloud Archive has been specifically designed to reduce the cost of retaining your long term data, as well as ensuring that your data is stored safely and securely in the cloud.
