Military-grade security data centers are tier three and tier four. The target reliability of each data center is 99.9 – 99.99%. These data centers are located around the world.
Online Backup’s data centers are located in:
- United States (Dallas, Houston, and Los Angeles)
- Canada (Toronto)
- Australia (Melbourne)
- United Kingdom (London)
- South Africa (Cape Town)
All of your data is backed up to our servers and stored with military grade AES-256 (256 bit) encryption, meaning only that your account can access it.
There is also an option to encrypt files during the actual file transfer (128-bit encryption). This encryption is similar to that used when you access your bank account online. It is deselected by default because it does slow down the backup process.
Each file is stored redundantly, on multiple servers, in multiple physical data centers that are in different geographical locations.
These data centers exist behind industry-standard, enterprise-grade firewalls and network security, have redundant power and network connections, are resistant to all but the worst possible natural disasters, and are secured with multiple layers of physical security. This physical security includes key cards, security guards, biometric scanners at points of entry, and security cameras.
