Guarantee your continuity in the event of a disaster - CSG will:
- Manage, Monitor and Automate your systems backup
- Provide off-site replication to the CSG Data Centre
- Enable a realistic Business Continuity Plan
What you back-up, where the data is stored and how quickly you can recover your system, is what really matters when you are considering data security. The CSG Backup and Disaster Recovery service (BUDR) will be central to your Business Continuity Plan as it has all the features and functionality to provide powerful, flexible and comprehensive data protection and recovery. BUDR is part of the CSG 360 Managed Support Programme, giving our helpdesk the ability to deploy, configure, manage, monitor, secure, backup and restore distributed systems from a single management console.
Recent surveys suggests that 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to shut down within 2 years of the disaster. Only 20% of organisations in the UK have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place that will ensure they are operational in the event of a disaster.
CSG are leading providers of Disaster Recovery Services. Should your critical business information be affected by viruses, computer failure, theft or natural disaster, you can be confident that your data is safely held in CSG secure data centres, ready for quick and efficient restoration.
CSG Backup & Disaster Recovery is a proven alternative to traditional backup methods. It provides a reliable, fully automated and cost effective way to ensure that your company data is securely stored and can be retrieved when required. Data is held in secure and reliable data centres, eliminating the risk of data loss.
To further extend the BUDR service CSG also offers Hosted Replication.

Full or Incremental Backups can be scheduled regularly or on demand through an intuitive web-based management console, allowing administrators to monitor the entire backup process, regardless of the physical location of each system. CSG Helpdesk can log into the solution from anywhere with an internet connection, including from home, overnight or during the weekend.
Backups scheduled at a time to suit your business so you don’t suffer any slowing down of your systems.
Incremental Forever Backup option means you can backup only the data that has changed, resulting in less bandwidth usage and faster restore times.
Synthetic Full Backups enable the backup server to take a typical incremental backup of the system and combine this data with the previous backups to generate a new synthetic backup, reducing bandwidth while increasing efficiency.
Offsite Replication options let you decide where the data is stored.
Automatic Image Virtualization Recovery enables you to schedule an auto-recover from any backup, minimizing the maintenance time and allowing you to auto-recover in “real-time” any machine, anytime.
Backup Status Dashboard shows you at a glance what succeeded or failed, and why, with one quick and easy window dashboard. With maximum visibility comes maximum protection for your data.
