The SMEs often compromise on data backup solutions due to budget constraints and lack of in-house technical expertise. The SmartFIler Backup Appliance solution solves both these problems – it brings advanced technology at affordable costs and offers very simple to use appliance-style solution that does not require technical expertise to operate and maintain.
"We are excited to partner with SmartPick Backup to offer its range of data backup appliances to the SMEs in this region. Unlike other NAS products, the SmartFiler Backup Appliance is specifically designed for reliable onsite and offsite backup and recovery. It offers technology and features of enterprise class disk backup solutions at affordable price and serves as a good alternative to tape backup solutions", says Adam Kee, Managing Director of Datum Technology.
Unlike other remote backup solutions, the SmartFiler Backup Appliance solution requires no monthly service charges and do not require a third party service provider. Customers buy two SmartFilers, pair them together, one located onsite and the other located offsite, and seamlessly backup their mission critical data on both SmartFilers. This enables small and medium businesses to backup to their own private cloud and avoid monthly service charges. The SmartFiler appliances are available with storage capacity of 500GB to 12TB.
“By using SmartFiler Backup Appliances, customers pay less than $4000 to backup 1TB of data, onsite and offsite, compared to over $15000 in a two-year period using the Barracuda Backup or Sonicwall CDP appliance solutions”, says Swami Nathan, President of SmartPick Backup.

Apart from the cost, backing up huge amounts of data is often impractical for many SMBs. Even with a T1 connection upload speed of 1.5Mbps, it will take over 30 days to backup 500GB to a cloud based backup service. But with the SmartFiler solution, customers can backup or restore the same 500GB in less than 3 hours! SmartFiler appliances use advanced data deduplication techniques to minimize storage needs and block-level incremental backups to minimize the network bandwidth needed for backup. The recently released Version 2 of the SmartFiler Appliances enable automatic offsite data backup of Exchange Server, SQL and other databases, expanding the solution to a wider market. Version 2 integrates SmartFiler Appliances with Symantec’s Backup Exec System Recovery product to enable offsite data backup of Exchange data without tapes and enables bare metal recovery.
