- Data Protection
Our database cluster is based on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 - the fastest, most scalable, most secure, and most reliable commercial database engine available today, and ensures ultimate data protection and fast access speeds. Databases are incrementally backed up hourly and a complete backup is performed on a nightly basis. The full backup copy is immediately shipped offsite.
The following resources will help you complete a database comparison of MS SQL Server database against other database systems. This database comparison will help you see how the SQL Server database outperforms and delivers flexible and reliable functionality in comparison with other database offerings, and how the SQL Server database will meet your business intelligence (BI), availability, productivity, and security needs.

Our Application Webfarm is constantly monitored and servers can be upgraded and replaced without affecting the overall system availability or uptime. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections, multiple firewalls and stringent security policies guarantee that your data is perfectly protected at any point in time.
The Media Storage Center stores images, videos, audio files and other documents that are attached to your data collection forms. Our QuadRedundant™ storage architecture ensures that each file is stored simultaneously on four physically independent carriers, which are constantly monitored and maintain an optimized file structure for performance. Three of the four physically independent carriers can malfunction at the same time and data will still be available online with no delays.
