We Answer Your Questions

Why is it important to back up your company’s data?

We often think that data loss only happens to others. And when we realize the importance of implementing data management, we lack time. But if you don’t do it, who will? Because your company is not safe from human error, accidents (falling equipment, lightning, fire…), malicious intent (hacking, ransomware…) or aging hardware (lack of updates, incompatibility…). The data storage must be a priority. Without it, it could cost your company a lot of money.


The Minarca software is installed on the computers and/or servers to be backed up using a simple runtime program. This user interface communicates with our servers to establish the backup links. Your computer data is then safely stored on our servers in Canada. Thanks to a simple and easy-to-use Web interface, you can consult the backup data online. You can access it at any time to recover your documents independently.

When we talk about “online backup”, we usually refer to the services offered by Google (Google Drive) or Amazon (AWS Backup) that generate backups in the cloud. In this sense, the data backup service we offer with Minarca is not an online backup mode. However, the backup data is accessible on the web from wherever you are.

You may currently be backing up your company’s data on external hard drives. This is already a good idea, but it is problematic for two main reasons. First, because handling your external drives, for example by moving them to keep them safe, can cause risks for a malfunction.

And above all, it is necessary to refer to the good practice in terms of backup, commonly called “3-2-1 backup”, which consists of having 3 copies of your data, in 2 different places and 1 of these places must be off-site. The objective is to keep a backup elsewhere to have a robust data storage solution. So, in case of a disaster that would be caused by a fire for example, you would be protected and have direct access to your data.

Google Drive, iCloud, and OneDrive cannot be considered as data backup solutions. They should be seen more as tools that provide temporary data storage, while having interesting features, such as file sharing between Internet users, which allows several people to work in real time on the same document, or to transmit files to others. The implementation of an efficient and durable data backup system is essential. With our backup service, your data is stored in Canada, under Canadian law and is only accessible by our team.

With free backup solutions such as Google Drive, iCloud, and OneDrive, the major problem is that in case of an emergency you will have trouble talking to a physical person quickly, moreover, in French! Furthermore, your data is stored on different servers, probably in the United States or elsewhere in the world. By doing business with IKUS Software, you are assured of having technical support close to home thanks to our excellent customer service. You are choosing to support a company based in the Laurentians, like you, that makes sure to store its data in Canada.

We invite you to contact us to book an appointment with our team. One of our experts will meet with you in your office to establish the data backup process that best suits your internal needs. During this meeting, we will install the software on the computers and servers to be backed up using a simple runtime program. We will then define with you the backup parameters: directories and files to be kept, retention period and backup frequency. We will then launch the initial backup, the execution time of which will depend on the quantity of files and the Internet connection. For 1 to 2 weeks, we will perform an intensive watch to optimize data storage. During the year, we will make sure that the backup process is working properly and will provide you with the necessary support.
