This offer gives nonprofits and public libraries access to the npVault managed backup service at special rates lower than Tech Impact's published rates. This TechSoup offer facilitates organizations' access to the discounted rates, but organizations pay Tech Impact directly for discounted service.
The discounted pricing for this service is $24 per month and includes 30 GB of cloud storage for backing up a single server. No contract is necessary, though Tech Impact requires 30 days' notice to cancel service.
This offer also includes a one-hour consultation with Tech Impact to determine backup needs.
Benefits for Organizations
- You can use npVault to protect your organization's servers against disaster by backing up your critical data offsite in cloud storage.
- You don't need advanced IT knowledge to use npVault. Tech Impact works with you to determine which files need to be backed up and configures, manages, and monitors your backups for you.
- You can avoid additional online storage fees by backing up noncritical data locally to a compatible network attached storage (NAS) device. Tech Impact can manage both your onsite and offsite backups.
Supported Data Types
You can use npVault to back up the following types of data:
- Local files
- Hyper-V Virtual Hard Disks
- Microsoft SQL Server databases
- Exchange Server Information Stores or individual mailboxes
- Windows System State backups
See the npVault file size and retention policies to estimate the size of your backups and understand how long each type of data will be available for restoration.
Additional Services Available
Other services are available for a fee.
- Additional cloud storage: Each additional gigabyte over the included 30 GB costs $1 per gigabyte per month.
- Local backup device: Tech Impact can recommend supported NAS devices, which are available from various manufacturers starting at $400.
- Additional backup agents: A backup agent must be installed on each server that needs its data backed up. One backup agent is included with npVault; each additional agent costs an extra $5 per month.
