Before you hit the panic button, contact Vuma Africa. Our data loss solution will save the day!
Did you know that hard drives are the most fragile component in your PC? The fragile nature of hard drives means that data loss is a fairly common occurrence; it has been estimated that 6% of computers experience some form of data loss every year! Since data loss is such a common problem, Vuma Africa has the tools and know-how to dig into your broken hard drive and retrieve your important information. Vuma Africa can perform this service on all types of hardware to recover your valuable data.
Don't Be Defeated by Data Loss
Because your data is important to you, we will do everything possible to get it back!
When your computer crashes and loses your data, it feels like your entire world has crashed with it. A hard drive crashes when small metal disks called platters, which have data stored on them and spin at thousands of revolutions per minute, comes crashing to a halt. A hard drive crash may happen because something as small as dust found its way inside the casing, or maybe the machine was dropped and the delicate balance of the platters was thrown off, or perhaps the tiny moving pieces inside your hard drive simply wore out, whatever the reason for your hard drive crashing, we have the tools to recover your data.
We have the means to not only recover data from your broken disc hard drive, but we can also retrieve data from removable magnetic media, flash disc, and other data storage devices. We can retrieve data from a drive running on any operating system like Microsoft Windows, Apple OS, Linux, DOS, VMWare, Novell, and select UNIX interfaces, and we can also support several models of hard disk drives like EIDE, IDE, SAS SATA, and SCSI.
Prevent Data Loss with BDR
The best solution to data loss is to be prepared with a Backup and Disaster Recovery solution.
While Vuma Africa can retrieve your data from a broken hard drive, it's much easier to recover data from our BDR solution. Vuma Africa's Backup and Disaster Recover tool will automatically back up your company's valuable data to a secure offsite data center, and we will manage the BDR solution for you as part of our managed IT services. This means whether you are backing up your data, or disaster strikes and you need to recover data that was lost, you don't have to panic or even do anything because Vuma Africa will take care of everything for you with our comprehensive backup and data recovery solution.

It's important to implement a data recovery solution as part of a concise business continuity plan.
There once was a time where companies required steel filing cabinets to store information. That time is long gone. Today, most of the documents your employees rely on to make your business run properly are of the digital variety. Document duplication, fire proof vaults, and off-site filing systems once were more prominent because that was the best way for companies to endure events where their data might be lost. All this extra storage was part of their business continuity plan. They knew that if a disaster ever struck, losing all of their work could be a fatal blow to their business.
This is where Vuma Africa comes in.
Consider the files stored on your computer network. Everything is typically stored on a central hard drive or server to make the operation of the system simple and efficient for multiple users. The problem with this is that you face a higher-degree of risk by "putting all your eggs in one basket". Hard drives fail all the time, and tape backup is costly and inefficient, so having a dedicated backup system is a must for any size business that relies on data.
If your business were to ever lose its data from drive failure, natural disaster, or user error, you are staring tragedy in the face. Nearly 70% of businesses that lose their data quickly go out of business. Having a data recovery solution, like our BDR, is an essential component of a solid business continuity plan.
How Our Solution Works
Simple, yet effective and affordable.
Unlike tape backup, our Backup and Disaster Recovery system utilizes hard drives to redundantly backup your data. By storing the data away from your primary location, it helps ensure the redundancy that you are looking for in a comprehensive backup system. With Epark Technologies's BDR you'll know that your data is always safe. If ever anything were to happen to your original data, a simple re-route would be all it takes to get your business back up and running again. This allows you to minimize your downtime to minutes, as opposed to the hours it would take to restore that data by using a less efficient backup solution.
To ensure that your company is protected from disaster, we believe that it's best practice to find a solution that not only backs up your data redundantly in multiple locations, but has the ability to restore in minutes.
If you currently don't have a backup solution, then you need one. Based on an affordable, monthly flat-rate, Vuma Africa's Backup and Disaster Recovery solution is a smart way to protect your business.
