BackupSilo Protects Canadian Corporations from Bankruptcy

TORONTO, July 6 /CNW/ - Supra Canada Technologies Ltd. announces BackupSilo as its new online backup division. Online backup services are no longer a luxury available only to elite corporations. Companies of every shape and size need offsite backup and data recovery options to protect against the destruction of financial records, documents, databases and mission critical applications. "Online backup services are now a necessity," said BackupSilo Director Marketing, Don Gerrity. "Fully 10% of all computer users experience data loss annually, costing Canadian companies hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity. In many cases, companies are reduced to rubble by critical data losses, especially in the case of fire or theft. A recent North American study found that more than 90% of companies that lose their data become unprofitable or go bankrupt. Every ten years, thousands of companies cease to exist as a result of data losses. Years of work can be lost overnight and the results are catastrophic."

"I tell prospects every day that BackupSilo services are another form of insurance," said BackupSilo Director of Business Development Dinesh Wadhwani. "Online backup and data recovery planning is mission critical. Even if you have an onsite backup solution there is no way to guard against theft, aggressive computer viruses, natural disasters, disk failures, disgruntled employees or human error. There are so many ways to lose onsite data that refusing to budget for online backup services is like driving a car without wearing a seat belt. You might make it to your destination safely but if something goes wrong you are in a world of hurt. Data recovery efforts from tape drives fail frequently due to software failures, mechanical errors and obsolescence. Cloud-based services are the future of backup."
