Data is the lifeblood of any organization — and keeping that data safely backed up and accessible in the event of file corruption is crucial. On top of that, organizations have different data retention policies that govern how long certain types of information should be backed up and where it should be physically hosted.
For any server connected to the internet, Simple Backup Service offers the ultimate in reliability and convenience. Just point-and-click to create backup policies that meet your requirements, then apply them to servers in the Lumen Cloud. Simple Backup Service supports VSS snapshots on Windows servers to ensure safe backup of open files.
From there, Simple Backup Service does the rest for you — data is automatically backed up in secure object storage and retained according to the policy. What’s more, you can access Reports from the Control Portal or the Public APIs that provide details about backup and restore activity. In addition, the Simple Backup Service Monitoring feature keeps you informed of backup status with email alert and webhook notifications. Restores are simple too — just define the data you want to restore and the server to restore it to, click the Restore button, and it’s done.

Start backing up server data immediately to secure cloud object storage. Simply apply a policy to the server, then install the Simple Backup Service agent. Your data will be backed up at regular intervals automatically.
No matter your requirement — days, weeks, months or even years — Simple Backup Service will keep your data safe and secure for the duration you specify.
Backup as much or as little data as you like — Simple Backup Service only charges for the storage you use. And to help keep costs low, only the changes in data since the last backup are included in the backup operation.
Data sovereignty matters — so Simple Backup Service keeps your data in-region, wherever that may be. Host backups in Lumen's world-class data centers around the globe.
Simple Backup Service support for Volume Shadow Storage/copy (VSS) snapshots means that users can backup open files while preserving file consistency for VSS-supported applications and databases running on Windows servers.
Access powerful Monitoring and Reporting features via the Control Portal. The SBS summary report provides an overview of all your servers while the Monitoring features keep you apprised of backup job status with email or webhook notifications.
Data loss can result from numerous threats and it’s only a matter of time before it happens. The key is to be prepared. Simple Backup Service can protect your data — on any internet-connected server — and provide peace of mind.
Data type and compliance considerations often dictate retention requirements. With Simple Backup Service, extensive configurability allows you to keep your data for as long or as short a duration you specify.
Storage location is also important when it comes to backups, whether it’s due to data sovereignty laws, geo-redundancy needs, or speed of backups. Combined with Lumen Cloud’s global footprint, Simple Backup Service provides the flexibility to meet your data location requirements.
A scalable and affordable backup solution is a must for any business focusing on growth. Simple Backup Service offers advanced API integration at a competitive price, and the solution offers easy ways to minimize restore costs using selective file restore, so your business can maximize its budget.
