Server failure? Flooding? A tornado? No problem—your data is safe. IT in a Box provides onsite data backup for quick recovery, and unlimited offsite data backup for worst-case scenario recovery after a major incident like a natural disaster. You also ensure the success of your data backups with our real-time monitoring to quickly address data backup issues and quarterly testing to verify your disaster recovery.
Is your city headed for a disaster?
Too many cities still cannot say for sure that they can recover data or prevent data loss after an incident.
- What if a fire raged through City Hall and destroyed your servers—and your city records?
- What if all your electronic information was suddenly inaccessible because of a computer virus?
- What if an email server failure means you cannot respond to an important Open Records or FOIA request?
Maybe you have a manual process in place such as an external hard drive, flash drive, or consumer-grade data backup solution. But people can get distracted and forget to back up. Manual backups fail or data gets corrupted. And when do you have time to adequately test your data backup to ensure it works?
To address the risk of permanent data loss and decrease liability, IT in a Box provides you a data backup solution – including onsite and offsite backup options – to help you recover from a disaster.

Data Backup and Disaster Recovery Features
Onsite data backup
IT in a Box gives you quick recovery—usually within minutes—of your data after less impactful events like a server failure.
Offsite data backup
IT in a Box allows you to recover data—quickly—after a worst-case scenario such as a natural disaster or a massive virus outbreak. We help cities become operational again within hours.
Periodic data backup testing
IT in a Box will recover your data after a disaster. So many cities do not test their data backups, and those backups may fail when you need your data most. We test quarterly to verify that your data backup is actually working. We’re not hoping we can recover your data, we know we can.
Our senior, municipal-experienced engineers are always monitoring your data backups and quickly address issues when they occur.
