Osage Communications provides full computer and computer network services, as well as, website construction and hosting.  We also sell and service several phone and voicemail systems. 

During the summer of 2005 one of our customers requested our help with a problem that had shutdown their business.  This was an average size business of 20 or so employees.  The problem was a virus that had infected their office computers and although they had implemented a back-up server, using a RAID array, they weren't prepared for this kind of problem.  The data wasn't stored on a separate drive, disconnected form the live network.  They had an anti-virus program installed on the server, but the virus definitions were out-of-date.  The virus was able to do what it does best.  Put people out of business. Being self-perpetuating, it infected all the executables files on every computer on their network. The RAID array had duplicated all of the infected files, so the backup was useless.  All of their important data was corrupted.  The repair was long, difficult and expensive.  And at times it looked impossible.   After 2 weeks and thousands of dollars later, their data was recovered and their business restored.

Most fortune 500 companies use the same basic techniques to protect their data:

  1. All their systems are completely automated
  2. The data is copied to a central location
  3. Highly-skilled technicians implement and monitor the process

Osage Communications then spent several months searching for the right hardware and software to enable this backup system to work for a typical company, without the high overhead. We now have a remote online backup system that allows us to set up a centralized backup server so that our customers can lease a highly-effective backup system with no overhead.

The advantages to a typical business are enormous:

  1. All files are protected by state-of-the-art encryption. Only the customer can retrieve their files.
  2. Completely automated off-site protection.
  3. Fast online recovery of any version of any protected file.
  4. Easy installation and setup.
  5. Only an Internet connection is required, eliminating the need for expensive backup equipment and media.
  6. The backup server is monitored by highly-skilled technicians whose only job is to make sure the backups are performed properly.

This is how it works....
We operate an off-site storage facility for the user's data. At the facility, an account is maintained for each user. Each account is protected by a password known only to the user.

The electronic vault system is set up so that at a preset time, usually late at night, the client's computer automatically wakes up and prepares its data for backup. The backup software determines which files have been modified since the last backup, compresses them, and encrypts them for security. When the data is ready, the computer uses its modem or Internet connection to contact our servers and transmit the data.

Our servers verify the incoming customer data, scans for viruses and stores the data. The data is also mirrored to another server in a separate location using redundant Internet connections for fail-safe protection. Our customers can rest assured that their data is safe, because it is stored off-site.
