Palm Desert, California – (via THE
HOSTING NEWS) – July 28, 2005 – Newport International Group announced today
that its Spare Backup Inc. subsidiary has signed a new channel partner for the
company’s fully automated online backup service.
An emerging player in online backup for small businesses and home office users,
Spare Backup Inc. signed the agreement with Digital Pursuit, a Florida-based Web
development, programming and design studio with a strong presence among local
businesses in South Florida.
The Spare Backup service, which Digital Pursuit will offer as a value-added service
to its customers at http://www.digitalpursuit.com,
runs by itself entirely, with no user interaction after sign-up. Between Spare
Backup’s proprietary software and the service element that takes advantage of
the user’s broadband Internet connection, files are automatically recognized,
saved, compressed and secured remotely.
According to Rene Curbelo, President of Digital Pursuit, ”…technology has
finally caught up with the pent-up demand. Spare Backup is the right company at
the right time to fill this need.”
Spare Backup is a fully automated remote backup solution. It starts by scanning
a user’s hard drive, including the desktop and e-mail programs, for files and
their important components. Then it transports the data, including new and revised
files, daily to twin data centers on both U.S. coasts. Files are triple-encrypted
and users can access them from any broadband, Web-connected
Michelle Zou, a research analyst at IDC made these comments, ”Many SOHO
businesses have their important data stored in laptops and PCs that are not
backed up regularly, if at all. One reason is that the traditional backup to
removable media involves manual operations, it is not convenient and easy to
bring human error. In addition, data recovery is time-consuming. Spare Backup
Inc.’s online data backup and recovery service automates the backup process,
and restores files in seconds by a few mouse clicks.”
Spare Backup service is available for $15.99 per month, including 5 gigabytes
of online storage, and is available for a 14-day free trial at http://www.sparebackup.com,
as well as from its reseller channel.
