Cumulonimble. Data backup. Cloud to cloud.March 14, 2013
Even the most secure enterprise or data centre can be hacked or infected by a polymorphic malware attack, persistent and determined ‘black hat’ programmer or malicious staff member. So, file backup is of critical importance in all environments.
There could also be a recurrence of past worldwide infections, as polymorphic malware is now far more covert, complex and capable of continuous mutation.
With security as a major consideration, all Digital Tsunami dedicated servers have multiple layers of redundant security and data backup.
Firstly, the webservers are housed in a reputable data centre with extremely robust physical and electronic security systems.
Secondly, the servers are RAID arrays with multiple hard drives, load balancing and anti-virus software.
Thirdly, scheduled daily and weekly server backups are archived on duplicate servers and in offsite storage facilities.
Fourthly, all WordPress websites are managed with separate daily and weekly backups, also stored offsite and “in the cloud” for maximum security and redundancy.
All these precautionary measures enable rapid restoration of site content, immediately an incident is detected.
All client sites (on our servers or elsewhere), are dynamically monitored at two minute intervals. This ‘heartbeat monitoring‘ ensures that our technicians are notified rapidly if a domain is detected to be offline.
Online solutions are designed with a fundamental security measures, including: high-level passwords for all back-end and front-end users; device IP-specific logins for administrators; strict upload file type restrictions; integrated anti-virus software scans; and a CAPTCHA on all forms.
Digital Tsunami manages dedicated servers in the telco-grade, Global Switch data centre in Sydney, Australia and can configure your own dedicated server or co-locate in the continent of your target market, or on a content distribution network (CDN) for high-speed global data delivery.
We have provided assistance to companies with sites that have been hacked or defaced, domains which have been stolen, and even a community group which required a forensic audit to determine if a staff member had committed a criminal offence.

From Our Clients
This is fantastic. Thank you. I really appreciate all the work you have done for us!
I am very happy with my new website from Digital Tsunami.
Not only did they design it, they also created my logo, and gave me valuable advice and professional feedback.
Through Digital Tsunami, my website now looks professional, easy to navigate and (through my customised CMS), easy to update.
We have been fortunate to work with Andrew and his creative team from the inception of our business. The design and execution of our site has been fundamental in winning over clients and establishing our footprint in a very crowded space. We also place great value on their input into our business process.
The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.
Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.
We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.
I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
Thanks very much for the speed & professionalism with which you continue to service our needs, despite the fact that this is provided pro bono !
Your ongoing generosity in donating the services of Digital Tsunami to Foodbank is appreciated more than you know. We, and the 30,000 people a day you help us feed, are indebted to you.
