We know keeping on top of license and software upgrades can really eat into your budget and precious time – our solutions include automatic license upgrades. 

Virtual Servers

With a virtual private server (VPS), hosted by us, your business shares an actual physical server with other customers, but you have your own dedicated slice of the server at a fraction of the cost of investing in the actual hardware.

• Your allocated server space is kept separate from other customers so your business has its own operating system and resources with isolated security measures.

• Your files and information are located in a secure environment away from your business - if your office is unreachable for any reason, you still have all your business information safe and sound at one of our two geographically diverse Data Centres.

Online Back up

Revive online backup is the solution to bring back to life lost data such as emails, vital files, payroll records and customer data resulting from a computer crash, ransomware virus, theft of hardware, accidental deletion, or a critical event affecting business premises, such as a fire.

Revive automatically backs up all the important data from your servers and workstations to the cloud, on a schedule you set. Retrieval is so easy – either go online to restore the data or for large data volumes have it couriered out to you.

Revive's backup manager is simple to use. Just log in and tell it what to back up and how often then sit back and let Revive do its job.

After you've completed your first full backup, you can automate Revive to back up only new or changed files and emails, to speed up the process. If there's ever a problem completing a backup, Revive will let you know by sending you an email and/or text notification. 

The safety of your backups is our top priority. Revive allows you to access your business’ information at any time. Your data is securely backed up through an encryption process and housed in our local Data Centre in Auckland.

Support is inherent in what we do.

With Compass cloud hosted solutions, you are covered under a service level agreement (SLA) for user support, incident & fault management & reporting, system performance, capacity planning and preventative maintenance.
