Online data backup with eSilo is far more reliable and efficient than manual backups, external hard drives, and legacy tape systems.
eSilo's backup technology was designed with security in mind. All data sent to eSilo is encrypted prior to transfer, with a private customer key, and is sent through an encrypted internet connection. We use 256-bit AES encryption for data and communications which is the industry benchmark.
Beyond our technology, what differentiates us is our hands on, concierge support. We've built our business by catering to the unique needs of small and medium sized businesses. You can't get this level of support from mass market or consumer-grade tools.
Standard edition is designed to backup mapped drives and is normally used on computers, although it can be used on servers. The computer must remain logged in during the backup.
Server edition is the most robust and is recommended for most installations. Backups will run even if the computer is logged out of Windows. This edition cannot backup mapped drives.
Exchange edition allows you to backup and restore Microsoft Exchange mailboxes and their contents (individual emails, contacts, calendar entries, etc.) without effecting performance.
Unix & Linux edition is compatible with Linux kernel 2.2 and above. If your platform is not supported, eSilo can create a custom agent. There is no user interface for this edition which uses conf files and cron jobs.
One-click Backups and Restores
The eSilo backup agent allows you to create and manage backup schedules, view everything you've backed up, and restore one file--or all files--with one simple click.
To create a backup, select the files and folders you want to include (or exclude) on the left. Files can also be dragged and dropped between the left and right ("Local Files" and "My Silo") windows.
Features of the eSilo backup agent include:
- Ability to perform an immediate backup ("Backup Now")
- One-click file or folder recovery ("Restore")
- Support for multiple users
- Support for multiple schedules per user
- Daily backup reports and email notifications
- Designed for minimal performance impact
- No disk fragmentation, RAM used for temporary storage
eSilo offers a suite of server-end licensed software applications allowing you to serve your own backup clients with the optional ability of synchronizing data to one of our facilities or one of your own. Housing your own backup servers allows you to reuse existing storage systems, provides for local (faster) restores and keeps all data within your organization.
SILOServ™ is the heart of the eSilo Backup System. This is the server-side backup application that eSilo backup agents communicate with. Handling All authentication, secure connections, archiving logic, volume management, data warehousing and system logging. SILOServ™ is an extremely scalable application that can serve tens of thousands of backup clients simultaneously.
When you purchase a license for SILOServ™, our server technicians fully administer, monitor, update and support the server for the life of the license. We do all of this work remotely, providing onsite support if purchased, and have technicians on call 24/7 365. From your perspective, an eSilo server is a device within your network that just works; no administration or configuration is required on your end. eSilo can provide the hardware for the server or you can utilize your own. Contact eSilo now to learn more and/or get in touch with a Storage Expert.
SILOServ™ can reuse existing storage within your network as backup volumes. DAS, NAS, SAN or internal storage can be used. Being a heterogeneous application, it can communicate with any device from any vendor. If such storage does not exist, eSilo can provide the required storage or work with you on a storage plan.
SILOSync allows a set of eSilo servers to synchronize data between themselves. SiloServ™ servers are normally configured in sets of two, a master and a remote slave. The purpose is to keep the slave updated throughout the day; similar to replication. The slave is designed to take over as master in the event the master becomes unavailable. SiloSync can also be used to synchronize other data in your network to any location in the world.
SILOManager is used to manage a running SILOServ™ server and as well as displays statistics. Some features are:
- Account listing (reseller enabled)
- Currently logged in eSilo users
- Storage Stats for each account and user
- Billing Information (reseller enabled)
- Log files
- Available storage space on server
- Backup report email displays
- Account creation

An Endorsement for eSilo
As a CPA, I understand the value of protecting a company's records, especially those items found on computer hard drives. With eSilo, I can easily verify what is being backed up, I can easily restore lost or damaged files plus I get a nice e-mail each morning telling me how I did during the previous night's backup. In my professional opinion, failure to use eSilo or an equivalent is tantamount to playing Russian roulette with irreplaceable computer files
Thank You eSilo
Having been in the data industry for 16 years, I can honestly say your company and process have lived up to your word. Your Windows based platform is the easiest we have ever encountered.
On the occasions where we have had to restore critical files, the process is quick and painless. We like the way your system duplicates our directory structure. It makes recovery so simple, within minutes we can restore any file needed. Your system is the best and easiest to use. Once configured, you just forget about it.
Keep up the good work and thank you for helping make our job a less complicated one.

I highly recommend eSilo
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the service you provide. Going the extra mile, by personally configuring our Linux servers for backup, was a tremendous and unusual level of support.
eSilo has made the management of our daily backups, for all 14 of our locations, extremely simple and effective. The best part is, not having to reply on individuals to do this work manually.
I highly recommend eSilo to all IT professionals. Their service and support has been excellent.

Excellent Backup Service
Thank you for your excellent offsite backup service. Having my information automatically, incrementally and securely sent off site each night, makes my job much easier and is a service I can't imagine living without.
I highly recommend eSilo as an off site backup solution for any country club or for any business. It is extremely simple to use and requires very little administration.

eSilo Saved the Day
I can't express in words how important it was for us to have eSilo today. Without your company we would have lost six years of product information, customer addresses, customer emails, customer order information, etc. You guys saved the day and maybe even our company.
Panic is an understatement as to what was happening when our server crashed and wiped out 5 years of our data. We immediately called eSilo to see if they had the backup of our databases. They were lightning fast and so helpful it was just amazing. They understood the critical situation we were facing. They put our database back onto our server within minutes.
I can't express in words how thankful we are and the value your company represents to us. If we hadn't used eSilo our business would have suffered immeasurable damage. Thank you so much.
eSilo Disaster Recovery
When one of our computer hard drives went down, we lost a lot of critical data. We had not backed up these files regularly and after having multiple problems with other backup solutions, we were introduced to eSilo. For the past two years we have been using eSilo's Disaster Recovery Plan, all of our backups have been automatic and completely successful.
