DIS Vault – Online Backup Service
The DIS Vault
The DIS Vault online backup solution contains many powerful yet simple to use features including backup tools previously enjoyed only by Fortune 500 companies. Here are just some of the many ways that you and your business benefits from using the DIS Vault.
Ensuring that no one but you can ever access your data is a top priority at DIS.
Military-Level Data Protection
Your data is encrypted before it leaves its computer using the same 256-bit AES security used by the U.S. military. Files are secured beyond the 128-bit encryption methods typically used for online banking, and can be accessed with an Encryption Key that only you have. Your files are stored, in encrypted form, on multiple servers in high security facilities. Not even The DIS Vault personnel can access your data.
Encryption Both in Storage and in Transit
The DIS Vault Online Backup communicates with DIS servers using SSL (Secure Socket Layers) technology. This is the same encryption technology used by Internet browsers when a user enters a secured site. So your data is encrypted twice. It is encrypted at all times using the 256-bit AES encryption, and it is encrypted again while being sent over the Internet.
Mirrored Data Centers
Data is stored on state-of-the-art file servers in two secure data centers located thousands of miles apart. Every file we protect is stored in both locations. Each facility is secured with biometric controlled access, 24/7 monitoring, backup generators and redundant connections to the Internet.
Block-Level Backup Technology
While different backup solutions appear similar on the outside, how they perform inside varies tremendously. Block-Level technology is what makes The DIS Vault Online Backup Solution faster and more efficient than others.
Smaller Blocks = Less Waste
Once a file has been saved, the DIS Vault backs up only changes, down to the block level. This allows users to backup more files in the same backup window, since incremental backups are smaller than they would be otherwise.
Because the DIS Vault only sends changed blocks, rather than the whole file or bigger chunks of it, significantly less data needs be sent, so users are able to backup more data in less time. With less data moved and stored for file changes, the cost of storage is minimized.
Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
For documents that change rapidly and need continuous data protection, The DIS Vault Online Backup allows users to set CDP to automatically send changes every 15 minutes. Worried about sky-rocketing data usage? Well don't! We've got you covered with our Block-Level Backup technology which knows how to backup ONLY your changes. Pair this with our extensive revision rule options and you'll have all changes to your documents safely and securely backed up on both a short-term and a long-term basis.
The DIS Vault Online Backup provides complete scheduling flexibility. Each backup set can be set to run at any user-defined time, and at any user-defined frequency. There are default settings, of course, but every aspect of a back-up schedule is easily configurable. At first, you'll be provided with a daily schedule and you can choose specific days and times for a regular schedule. If you are an irregular sort of person, however, you can say "run a backup daily at 10pm, then run it Wednesday at 3pm, and let's throw in an extra backup on Sunday at 5pm because we work weekends." It's that easy!
With a single DIS Online Backup account, you can manage an unlimited number of computers. Each computer under a main account can have its own backup sets and configuration, and this is called a subaccount. This is especially useful for companies with multiple servers, or with servers and computers in different offices or departments. To make it easy for billing, the usage for each computer is pooled together under the main account. For an extra level of security, we even give you the option of assigning a different password to each subaccount under a main account.
The DIS Vault Online Backup subaccounts are the perfect solution for workers on the go who need to make sure their important documents are always backed up. When traveling with a laptop, you can simply create a subaccount, install the software, and make a backup set. When a WIFI connection is available, simply kick off a backup. You'll appreciate this when you're working on a Powerpoint presentation in a motel in Omaha at midnight and you accidentally deleted a slide. You can just load the software and go to the previous backed up version! We recommend using our Continuous Data Protection option for these exact situations.
How much does The DIS Vault Online Backup tell you about what it's doing? As much or as little as you want! Reports on successful backups, failed file notifications, or any activity of the program can be automatically reported to the people who need to know how the solution is performing. Backup and restoration reports can be generated following any action, or at regularly scheduled intervals. All reporting preferences are entirely user-configurable. As an added feature, our DIS Vault Online Backup logs are so complete that they can be used for compliance purposes, as well as to track the times when files were actually backed up.
DIS Vault Online Backup activity happens in the background, while you work. Our bandwidth throttling feature assures that no matter how big your backups are, DIS Vault software will never cause network congestion or get in your way as you perform other tasks. It always knows the right amount of bandwidth to use to get your backup to complete as quickly and efficiently as possible no matter what you are doing.
"DIS has been our saving grace. We are very pleased with all of their help and feel relief at knowing everything is backed up off site. Thank you so much for all you have done and are continuing to do."
