How It Works
Data Poize works like regular data backup software, but with one important difference. Instead of sending backups to a tape drive or other media attached to the computer it is backing up, Albion Data Safe sends the backup over the Internet or other network connections to your online backup server safely offsite. It does this (usually) at night while computers are not being used. Backups can also be done on-demand, any time. It is completely automatic. In fact, you may even forget it is working. Most people put their lives on the line every night and don't realize it. With individuals depending more and more on the data stored in their computers, proper backups are becoming much more critical.
Data Poize accomplishes several essential steps that are often overlooked or done improperly by other backup software - especially in the regular non-automated backup systems. The correct files are backed up. Ordinary backup software is often installed with a list of files to be backed up. This set of files usually represents the state of the system when the software was installed, and often misses critical files. Further, it often fails to back up files that get added later. Compounding this problem, very few individuals take the trouble to reset their backup software regularly to include new files.
Data Poize solves this problem by constantly re-evaluating the computer system, adding files to the backup as needed. Several full copies of important files, pictures, videos are stored using a sophisticated version control system unavailable in most other backup software of any kind. The general definition of "proper" backups requires redundancy. One must keep multiple copies of the same files at different points in their development, called versions. As an example, you should have a different copy of each backed-up file for each backup session. Further, you should be able to easily restore any of your files up to any given point in time. Banks do it, big corporations do it, and so should individuals. Only Albion Data Safe has such an easy to use version control system.
Data Poize encrypts its backups using your choice of eight of the strongest cryptographic methods in the world for complete security so nobody, not even the Albion technical team, can read the files. Of course, you can see that this would be a problem in a fire or flood or an earthquake. But it's also useful in emergencies where you are forced to evacuate your place quickly. Even businesses that do backups and have good, undamaged tapes have to shut down. Many go out of business simply because they don't have access to their data. Albion Datasafe solves this problem by automatically storing this valuable data at more than one site. So, a business can be back up and running with new computers and their latest data no matter what catastrophe happens.
