Backup as a Service
Mechanicus utilizes a hybrid backup solution developed by Ctera which we provide as a service.  No large backup equipment purchases, backup software licensing renewals, tapes to purchase or off-site tape vaulting services. Just one low monthly fee which includes both the device and the cloud storage for your data to be stored both locally and in our private cloud. 
This hybrid backup solution combines hardware appliances, small footprint software agents and cloud storage services to deliver a seamless user experience that feels local but delivers the flexibility, file sharing and off-site disaster recovery capabilities of the cloud. Using advanced de-duplication and compression technologies, this ensures speedy data transfer to and from the cloud.
With Ctera you can:
  • Store, back up and share files locally using NAS protocols (CIFS, NFS, AFP)
  • Back up and restore files and full disk images on servers, desktops and laptops (Windows, Linux and Mac)
  • Back up and restore your Microsoft Exchange, including single-mailbox recovery
  • Back up and sync files to the cloud, maintaining multiple snapshots
  • Share files in the cloud and on your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android)


Eliminate consumer cloud applications and have your own private cloud infrastructure. Create invitations to not only view but collaborate with your colleagues and clients.
