DDS Online Backup Manager (DDS OBM)

Dynamic Digital Solutions Backup Manager (DDS OBM) is designed as a multi-platform, reliable and secure application for backing up all of your environments. DDS OBM takes out the element of human error by sending your data to us at predetermined times over secure links via the internet.

One of the ways in which DDS OBM is unique is that it has been programmed so that it only takes a backup that is incremental i.e. It will only retrieve the data that has changed. This method we call In-file Delta which drastically changes the way backups are done. Data coherence is an integral part of any business and we have taken every measure to make sure that the company/client is safe and secure, on completion of the software installation the company/client will be instructed to enter a password with which to encrypt (128 bit) and decrypt their data. This password also has 128 bit embedded encryption, thus DDS specialists have no access to this information without the use of that specific password.

DDS OBM

From conception Dynamic Digital Solutions knew that it had to create an application that would span all working environments, and our R&D team has taken great strides in bringing you a product that will work on any operating system and backup any and all open files. What our countries infrastructure lacks, Dynamic Digital Solutions makes up in service. As a result of our poor yet improving telecommunications network in South Africa seeding (initial data upload) large amounts of data over copper would take an enormous amount of time and money however DDS has readily available technicians to physically service your seeding requirements. In our corporate environment we understand that competition inspires progress and thus our DDS Specialists will setup a free 7 day Assessment Period at your convenience for the company/client to test our award winning software. A DDS Representative will contact you and facilitate the entire process, from installation, configuration and seeding.

Importance of Data Backup

Setting up data backup, recovery and retention policies is the only way to prevent disaster from happening, this we call an N+1 redundancy strategy, which will ensure your business continuity. Governments around the world have started imposing regulations to ensure safe data retention in businesses so as to protect public interest. Although your industry may not be affected at the moment, it is wise to be ahead of the curve.

Here are some of the regulations:

Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA)
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

Conventional backup methods (e.g. tape) are insufficient.

  • High failure rates during restoration.
  • Critical backup failures will not be detected until at the time of restoration.
  • High cost of maintenance and licensing is prohibitive.
