Backup Solutions

Kalmer Solutions can implement an in-house or off-site backup solution. Our backup solutions can include tapes, redundant internal backups (such as partition replication), redundant external backups (such as an external harddrive), and remote backups. We have found that a combination of a good internal and external backup is sufficient for most clients.
