Hosting providers run offsite backup every night of all customer data. Simployer can restore the customer database if the customer requests this. This is priced separately according to standard price list. Our hosting partner runs standardized backups after the following schedule:
Max loss of data
31 days repetitive backup
4 weeks repetetive backup
11 monthly backups last year
1 yearly backup last 10 years (1)
24 hours within current month (2)
1 month for data older than last month
1 year for data older than last year
Limitations in backup
(1) Restore of data older than one year is only possible on equipment and software that is still in production. If equipment and software needs to be restored to legacy configurations in production to be able to restore data, this comes as an extra cost.
(2) Assuming that the has been no service disruption during backup.
If only parts of the customer database is to be restored, our consultancy department may provide its own price quote on this.
