Client Testimonial

Without Cloud Backup Solutions my insurance company would have closed after all our computers were stolen – and I would have no way of recovering in just 2 days and ensuring I store my critical client documentation in line with regulatory requirements.

The restore process was incredibly smooth and I have had minimal interruption to my services I provide to my clients. I am very happy with the service and  happy to refer the product and service to my clients.
