Data Vaulting Services
Secure Your Data
In today’s around-the-clock e-business environment, data volumes are growing at an explosive rate. Protecting this information is crucial. Companies need immediate and constant access to critical information to ensure business continuity when disaster strikes.
Most backup solutions make restoring data a cumbersome and risky process. Manually retrieving off-site tapes, and recovering files from these tapes can be problematic for several reasons. With Internet Vaulting, you eliminate these issues. Our automated backup solution guarantees that it gets done.
Off-site transmission and storage provide a necessary safeguard for your data, while under the protection of industrial-strength encryption. And instant access to your data allows quick and easy recovery. In addition, your cost savings are not only realized in the lack of hardware & software costs, but also in the amount of time saved using this technology.
Using Coastal’s Internet Vaulting service is simple. Our engineers have taken great strides in making sure our data recovery process is easy to manage and straightforward in design. The ability to restore specific files and data components on the fly, and do it quickly, is our core offering. However, our advanced functionality and enhanced features offer much more and give us major advantages over our competitors.
Internet Vaulting is the solution of choice for companies who want to take the hassles out of their traditional backup routines and transition to a highly secure and easy to manage off-site storage solution.
Any document, spreadsheet, or other file is at risk if it exists in only one location. Hard drive malfunction, computer viruses, fire, human error can and do happen. When these problems occur, some or all of the data can be lost forever – weeks or months of work can disappear in an instant. Protection from such a disaster is to have multiple versions of the data in an alternate location. This is the principle behind all backup strategies.
Many businesses with procedures already in place may not be aware of the alternatives to their current expensive, manual, archaic tape-based backup processes. With business operations so reliant on information technology, it is vitally important to identify alternatives that can eliminate vulnerabilities and to utilize an effective data protection service that will provide the ability to quickly restore business operations.
Internet Vaulting is a unique alternative to traditional backup methods, replacing conventional tape-based systems with a fully automated online solution. It provides centralized and automated backups of PC’s, file servers and application/database servers with secure offsite data storage and immediate online restoration.

How It Works
Coastal’s Internet Vaulting can help your business protect its digital assets. We provide digital insurance and peace of mind at a price point that can fit into any budget.
Easy to Install. Highly Scalable.
DS-Client software sends the data to be protected to the off-site location, in a compressed and encrypted format. It retrieves this data from off-site anytime you need to restore it. It runs on a Windows or Linux machine. Thanks to our “agentless” architecture, the free DS-Client is the only software you need to install at each remote location. That eliminates the cost of installing an “agent” or “client” on every machine you want to protect. It also makes your backup highly scalable.
Easy Deployment Across the Enterprise
You can automate client installations across a variety of operating systems and network configurations. The DS-Client protects data from most operating environments, such as Windows®™, Unix, Linux, including “hot” backup of Oracle®, MS-SQL®, and MS-Exchange®. It integrates fully with NT domains, Trusts, and Novell® NDS trees, and otherwise adopts your local LAN’s existing security settings.
The DS-Client software only needs to be installed on one machine in your organization. This single software installation acts as the central management location for all your backup and restoration needs. It provides all the tools your IT team needs to manage your data, including the verification that all backups occurred correctly and as scheduled. You can view all of your backup sets from one convenient interface that integrates with existing SNMP-based monitoring and notification systems.
Faster Backup, Faster Recovery
Internet Vaulting automates and simplifies as much of the backup process as possible. Backups can occur as often as you wish. Only new, unique data is backed up, saving you bandwidth and storage space. You can backup while restoring, or restore while backing up.
Simple, automated and secure
Our software automates and simplifies the backup process as much as possible. A high level of data security is a key element in our Internet Vaulting solution. All encryption and decryption take place at the customer premises.
Delta Blocking significantly reduces the amount of data transmitted and stored. Common File Elimination automatically eliminates common files across your entire LAN, and your data is compressed before being encrypted and transmitted offsite.
Your data is also stored in encrypted format using one of the standard encryption algorithms: DES, AES 128, AES 192, and AES 256. For added security, all encryption and decryption take place at your premises.
