Developing your own backup technology, whether it is for local backup to a hard drive/network storage device or for secure online backup, is no small feat. Many companies looking to create their own solution confess to thinking (initially) “backup is easy right? A 3 or 4 month project at most!”
The truth is that after about 4-6 months you’ll be starting over; realizing all the problems with your original design, bogged down by the minutiae, the very necessary details that are so very important when protecting data. After all, this isn’t so much an exercise in developing a software solution as it is about protecting people’s digital lives/livelihoods. Creating and maintaining trust requires a quest for perfection, not simply ‘good enough, job done’. This is where experience counts. Our prior careers were working for the likes of VERITAS and Seagate Software; and after five years on the market, KeepVault is one of the more stable and mature offerings available.
So when a major US-based PC company was looking to create a new consumer centric online backup solution they chose to ‘whitelabel’ KeepVault; they used KeepVault as the foundation for their own customized solution. Contractual obligations prohibit us from disclosing which PC OEM it is, but needless to say they are BIG. Why did a company as large as this and with so many of their own resources choose KeepVault?
Experience! Experience! Experience!
Our team has shipped backup (Backup MyPC) and mastering (RecordNow, MyCD) solutions globally, with every major PC and drive OEM (tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of units).
