Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to use COMMbits Cloud Backup?

On-Demand solutions start at CDN$0.15 per GB of storage. Cost drops rapidly with multiple computers and higher storage volume tiers. Other factors that affect pricing include volume of monthly restores, and whether you are opting for a managed solution.

I am already using Dropbox, Microsoft Cloud, or other Cloud-based storage. How does COMMbits Cloud Backup differ?

Dropbox and other similar cloud-based storage services are NOT backup services. They are simply storage devices, just like your hard drive or USB drive, but reside on the cloud.

  • If you delete a file from those devices, it’s lost for ever.
  • If you or a colleague overwrites a file with a newer version (for example an Excel spreadsheet or Word document) the previous version is lost. COMMbits Cloud Backup can store multiple versions based on business rules you define.
  • Dropbox and other similar cloud storage services cannot backup System State or computer Images, ideal for a server.
  • If your objective is to safeguard many terabytes of data, Dropbox and other similar cloud storage services will be expensive.
  • The price for regular cloud storage services such as Dropbox grows exponentially as you add more users.
  • COMMbits Cloud Backup is a Managed service. We can even remotely “push” backups to your computers or perform restores.
  • Our custom Cloud Backup solutions include On-Demand plans, where you pay only for storage and restores you use. We can offer you a plan that makes financial sense for your own case, based on storage volume required, number of computers, servers, users, etc. This is not possible with Dropbox or other similar Cloud Backup systems.

In a nutshell, services such as Dropbox are ideal if you wish to provide a hard drive “extension” on the cloud, but they are NOT proper, industry-standard backup and disaster-recovery solutions.

Is there a limit to how much we can store?

No! You can store from 1 GB to petabytes and beyond! (One petabyte is 1000 terabytes.) With our On-Demand plans you pay only for what you use.

I am photographer with many terabytes of archival data. Using Dropbox is very expensive for me. Can you help?

Yes! We have an “archival” solution, whereby you can store many terabytes of infrequently-accessed data for long periods of time (years, decades) at low costs. Please contact us and mention how much data you are interested in archiving on how many computers, so that we can put together a custom plan for you.

We are a Law Office and must keep large archives for many years, securely. Can you help?

Yes! We have an “archival” solution, whereby you can store many terabytes of infrequently-accessed data for long periods of time (years, decades) at low costs. We use military-grade security during transport and at rest, so your data is always secured.

If you are required to keep your files in a specific jurisdiction (i.e. in Canada), we can comply. Our platform utilizes Amazon AWS, with data resting in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and elsewhere around the world.

We are an Accounting Office and must keep customer files for many years. Can you help?

Yes! With our “archival” solution, you can store many terabytes of infrequently-accessed data for long periods of time (years, decades) at low costs. We use SSL encryption on transit and strong encryption (AES 256-bit source side encryption) at rest, so even your most sensitive data is always secured.

What kinds of solutions can you put together?

We build custom cloud backup solutions based on two distinct “flavors”:

  • Solutions based on fixed data quota (separate for storage and restore) per device.
  • On-Demand solutions, whereby you pay only for the amount of data (storage and restore) you use and the number of devices in your environment.
Can my users share a single pool of storage space?

We support sharing storage space from the same pool in our On-Demand custom plans.

Where is my data stored?

Our platform utilizes the renowned Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure for storing clients’ data. Locations include Canada, US-East, US-West, Europe and Asia.

Will COMMbits Cloud Backup copy opened files?

Yes, COMMbits Cloud Backup leverages Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Technology to backup opened files.

Can I backup network shares?

Yes you can!

How does COMMbits Cloud Backup secure my data?

We offer several industry standard strong encryption algorithms to protect your data (up to AES 256 bit). In addition you can optionally protect access to COMMbits Cloud Backup with a master password, encrypt filenames, and use Server-Side Encryption. All communications between the client software and the storage environment occur with SSL security.

Does COMMbits Cloud Backup copy all files every time it runs?

No, our system identifies files modified since last backup and only copies such files. This makes subsequent backups run much faster. We use timestamps to identify modified files.

Can COMMbits Cloud Backup copy only modified portions of the file? I want to backup my Outlook PST file, but it is 2GB and I don't want to copy the whole file every time.

Yes! This is called block-level backup and it is fully supported with COMMbits Cloud Backup.

Does COMMbits Cloud Backup keep older versions of a file?

Yes, and this feature gives you the ability to restore a file to a certain point in the past. Retention policies are separate for each backup plan (you can have as many backup plans as you want) and include the following features:

  • Delete file versions older than X days/months/weeks/years from modified/backup date and choose to always keep the last version.
  • Keep X number of versions for each file.
  • Delay purge for X days/weeks/months/years
  • Delete files that have been deleted locally after X days.
What scheduling options exist?

Scheduling is, again, very comprehensive:

  • Run manually (no schedule) / Specific Date/Time / Recurring
  • Daily, weekly, days of week
  • Monthly (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, penultimate, last / Day of week, repeat every X months, starting on X
  • Daily, on specific time, or every X minutes/hours within a specific timeframe.
Can COMMbits Cloud Backup copy data immediately as it changes (e.g. new files are added or existing files are modified)?

Yes, this is what we call Real-time backup. You can select this option in the Backup Wizard Scheduling step. By using a low level Windows API this feature comes with zero impact on your computer performance.

If I delete a file on my local computer is it also deleted from backup storage?

For each backup plan you can choose to delete files that have been deleted locally and how many days to keep the files on the cloud after they have been deleted locally. We call this “Smart Delete”.

What happens if a backup is interrupted prior to completion?

Unfinished backups continue from where they left off, when the device becomes active again and on-line.

Do you offer a web-based application that works with my backup data?

Yes. Please visit backup.commbits.net. This included application offers a drill-down view of your complete backup repository and allows you to perform downloads.
