Data That’s Safe and Accessible

Safe, accessible data? No, that’s not an oxymoron. RapidScale’s Backup as a Service (BaaS), together with our security services, cloud platform and expertise of our technology partners, helps make data both safe and available anytime, anywhere.


Move data between similar or dissimilar storage systems easily, whether on-premises, colocated or to a new data center.

Managed Off-Site Infrastructure

Keep data safe, accessible and backed up, managing the process as you like. Server-side encryption adds security for data at rest.

Pay-as-You-Go Pricing

One of the greatest economic advantages of the cloud. Pay only for the compute, storage and infrastructure actually used.

Smart Use of Internal Resources

Reduce hours spent on operations and maintenance.  Increase resource allocation around process efficiencies or app development.

RapidScale Backup as a Service 

From encryption to managing replication and disaster recovery, we take the work out of backing up file systems, system states and business applications. With incremental backup and block-level backup, your data is efficiently and effectively replicated to our secure data center.

Why Backup?

Data is lost at an alarming rate today. The top reasons we lose data are:

  1. Human error (deleting files accidentally)
  2. Malicious intent (viruses or malware)
  3. Poorly maintained infrastructure
  4. Power surge or outage
  5. Local hardware theft
  6. Liquid damage (coffee)
  7. Catastrophic

Cloud-Based Data Backup and Storage Features

Never miss a scheduled backup, exceed storage capacity or hinder application performance and end-user experience. In addition to automated backup and replication technologies, RapidScale technical support is available anytime to assist or modify backup services.

Backup Schedule – Automate backups to run when least disruptive and at best frequency.

Real-Time Backup – Backup everything automatically. This runs as Windows® Service and tracks folders for new or changed files and backs them up immediately.

Local Backup – Set up local backup if you want to send only a subset of your data to the cloud and keep the rest on your local backup storage.

Block-Level Backup – Back up only changed parts of the file. Our offering detects these parts and automatically uploads them to the remote storage.

  • Compression – Reduce the size of your backups to save time and money spent on storage. Our Backup as a Service (BaaS) compresses data prior to transfer.
  • Intelligent Bandwidth Scheduler – Control bandwidth throttling in real-time to set, for instance, the backup to consume all available bandwidth during off hours and on weekends while consuming only 10% of bandwidth during working hours.
  • Encryption – Protect your data from unauthorized access by choosing an encryption algorithm and setting a unique encryption key. Our service encrypts all your data before uploading it to storage.
  • Customized Retention – Enable automated deletion of outdated data from your storage. Specify number of versions to keep for each file. Purge file versions older than specified file age. Specify for how long keep files that were deleted locally.
