Remote Data Backup Glossary Continued 2

Data encryption

The process of encrypting data for restricted viewing. Only the person with the encryption key can decode the data and view it.

Disk to Disk

A backup that transfers data from the disks on the computers to disks in the vaults - as opposed to send the data to tapes. This method provides for rapid recovery, especially to older archives of data.

Delta backup

As differential backup, a backup that only contains the files that have changed since the most recent backup (either full or incremental). The advantage of this is quicker backup times, as only changed files need to be saved.

Differential backup

A cumulative backup of all changes made since the last full backup. The result is quicker recovery time, requiring only a full backup and the latest differential backup to restore the system.

Disaster recovery

Otherwise referred to as DR, its the process of recovering business operations after a disaster and restoring or recreating data. It is in any company’s best interest to minimize its DR period.

Email Security

Anti-virus, spam and phishing service. Removes all emails containing malicious content before they reach the user's email server.

End-to-end encryption

Ideally, data should be encrypted before it leaves the source machine by a client generated key and stored, in an encrypted form at its destination.

Full backup

A backup of all (selected) files on any given system.

Full Disk Encryption

A method of encrypting data on a hard disk at a level below the operating system. Such a method does not rely on the operating system to manage the encryption and the disk cannot therefore be read if the disk is transferred to a new machine.

Hardware as a Service

HaaS - the provision of computer hardware on a pay-as-you-go basis - either in the 'Cloud' or on premise.

Hot backup

A backup of a database that is still running so that changes may be made to the data while it is being backed up. Some database engines keep a record of all entries changed, including the complete new value. This can be used to resolve changes made during the backup.

Incremental backup

A backup that only contains the files that have changed since the most recent backup (either full or incremental). The advantage of this is quicker backup times, as only changed files need to be saved.

Initial Backup

The first or seed backup of a set of data, usually directly to a data centre or vault. A seed backup can be done online over the Internet or using a media device such as a secure hard disk with encryption.

Latency

This is a measurement of the total time taken for data to be encoded and transferred between communicating devices. Poor latency causes lag, and is often responsible for transfer speeds that seem to fall short of advertised bandwidth figures.

Media spanning

The process of backing up data to multiple storage sites or mediums. This is normally conducted when there is a significant amount of data that needs protection.

Multi-platform

This term refers to software that works on both Macintosh and PC Operating System platforms. Some online backup software is capable of working on a variety of OS, while others will be specialized.

Multiplexing

A method of combining multiple backup data streams into a single stream that can be written to a single storage device.
