The risk of data loss, through any means, is a significant risk to any business.

As well as the loss of productivity and revenue through downtime, there is a genuine threat to business continuity in the long term. Designing and implementing a backup infrastructure that is tailored to your specific business can almost eliminate this risk, giving you the ability to restore critical data in a timely manner thus significantly reducing operational disruption.

With the right architecture, organisational data can be held locally, replicated offsite and provide long-term archival mechanisms to ensure that all data is rapidly available as and when needed.

In the event of data loss, system malfunction, or a cyber-attack – your business can’t afford to stop working. Implementing a robust backup infrastructure (utilising both physical and virtual resources), you can continue your business operations whilst the problem is solved.


The rate at which you produce data is only ever going to rise, often at phenomenal speed. Scalability, flexibility, and capacity is one of the most important considerations to ensure that everything is protected in a robust and cost-effective way.

Even arbitrary backups can take a considerable amount of time, let alone a full system reserve, and take a lot of processing power. The time and resources required needs to be built into any backup process.
Multiple copies of your backup data must exist, both on-site, offsite, and with an air-gapped copy, to ensure complete redundancy and security in any eventuality.
The data might be complicated and the system might be intelligent, but reducing that complexity is important so that it can be used quickly and intuitively in the case of a restoration.
And those restorations must be as rapid as possible, to avoid any loss of productivity, business, or revenue. Downtime should be a non-negotiable condition.


We’re always looking for innovations that support our clients.

Technical advances

We are fast approaching a scenario where a business’ servers will be more than 50% hosted virtual machines within a hyperscale, meaning an organisational overtake from datacentre to cloud.

Protected data

More backup solutions are incorporating deduplication, which eliminates redundant data from backups in order to save space (keeping costs down) and reducing restoration times.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

Commercial worked with Queens College, Taunton, to implement backup infrastructure that ensures resilience and data integrity in the event of a cyber-attack. With our existing infrastructure at the end of its life, the new hardware provided a significant performance boost, faster data access, reduced latency, and improved responsiveness. The new system can handle increased workloads and data demands, along with modern storage solutions to enhance data integrity and protection.

Peace of mind is assured

Having Commercial’s experienced and trusted experts on your team, brings you a host of benefits.

Trusted partners

Commercial’s partnership approach means we become an extension of our client’s IT team, working collaboratively. Our purpose is to ensure that you can harness the power of technology to enable your business to grow whilst ensuring the growth is efficient, cost-effective and delivers the right outcome.

Sustainability & security

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and taking your ESG goals into account, as well as trying to improve them, will be a key component in the design of any solution we recommend. We’ll only build systems that deliver improvements to your security and your sustainability.

Carbon footprint control

With such large volumes of data, and such regular processing power required to manage it, backup infrastructure represents a significant part of your IT energy usage. We’ll always have in mind how to minimise your impact, and can support your organisation to reduce your carbon footprint company-wide.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our team of experts are on hand to answer all your questions. Here are just a few common queries to get you started.

What is backup infrastructure?

It’s a system, or collection of systems, which stores and restores all of your organisation’s data in the event of loss. It protects you from the repercussions of any accidental loss, system malfunction, or cyber-attack.

How often is my data backed up?

We will advise, and you can choose, the frequency of your backups. The more often the better, so that less newly-created data is lost if a restoration is required. Most businesses operate daily and weekly backups.

What systems are used to back up my data?

Most modern backup infrastructures utilise a mix of on-premises (servers, appliances, and removable media) and off-premises (cloud) systems to offer full redundancy.

Are my backups secure?

Your backup infrastructure will include multiple fail safes to ensure that your data is completely secure from risk. This could include multiple copies in multiple locations, both physical and digital, air-gapped copies, as well as encryption and authentication.
