DART Box™ – Cloud Seeding Made Easy

Setting up your backup and disaster recovery data in the cloud – called seeding – is the first step in any business continuity plan. The process has two considerations that we at SingleHop treat with utmost care: speed and security. 

Our proprietary DART Box™ (Data Acquisition and Recovery Transfer) seeding system is the answer to both, allowing you to safely and securely ship large amounts of data into our enterprise, production-grade cloud storage.

Isn’t shipping physical media slower and less secure? Not necessarily. While creating your first backup over the internet is optimal for small amounts of data, the rate of transfer depends on the congestion of the public network, providers and routers. That’s why datasets in the terabytes can easily take too long for business continuity migration schedules. For security, encryption is typically a safe bet, but there will always be a small risk of the data being intercepted.

Transferring Large Quantities of Data? Use the DART Box™ System.

Large datasets are best seeded with physical media; however, traditional physical media like hard drives, CDs, and thumb drives aren’t always encrypted or securely shipped. With DART Box system, however, shipping your organization’s mission-critical data is both safe and simple. We send you a nifty, tamper-proof box that includes everything needed to get your business continuity plan moving, including specially encrypted 6TB hard drives. Locally transfer your data, ship it to SingleHop, and our data center technicians will take care of the rest. The service is provided free of charge with all SingleHop business continuity plans.

Remember, this is a one-time operation. Once the seeding process is complete, you’ll only need to remotely back up the data that changes since the initial transfer.

Jag gillar tröjan, synd att den bara funkar ungefär tvÃ¥ veckor om Ã¥ret. Inte sÃ¥ lätt att fÃ¥ tag pÃ¥ om man bor i Sverige heller tyvPirr.Ãersonl¤gen tyckte jag inte att Chinatown var sÃ¥ häftigt. Jag hade rätt höga förväntningar, men det var väldigt litet och inte sÃ¥ china som jag hoppats pÃ¥. Kanske fÃ¥r ge det en ny chans i höst.

Wishing you an incident-free day.
