Nittany Link's Cloud Backup Service

Backups are a necessity for all businesses. Traditional backups require daily interaction to be successful. Let Nittany Link, Inc. worry about it for you!

Our secure cloud backup software will store your business' data safely offsite in the event of a system failure or disaster. Our experienced staff will monitor your backups nightly to verify that they have completed successfully. In the event that your backup fails, our staff will remotely resolve any issues and manually perform the previous backup.

How NLI's Cloud Backup Works

Offsite Backup ServicesOur backup software encrypts your data (locally on your workstation/server) before the backup begins. Our system uses the encryption password setup during the installation of our software.

Once the data is encrypted, it is transferred through a secure SSH (Secure Shell) tunnel to our servers. All of your private data is stored encrypted. While encrypted, the data is useless to anyone without the encryption password, even Nittany Link.

When a file needs to be restores, the process is reversed. Our servers compile the request for the data selected and sends it back to you through a secure SSH tunnel. Once your workstation/server receives the encrypted file, it uses the encryption password to decrypt the file and restore it to the folders of your choice.

File retention allows Nittany Link to store up to 4 weeks of file changes on our server. This allows you to restore to previous versions of a file if needed or restore a file deleted up to 4 weeks ago.
