Automated Database Backups

Safeguard Your Bookings: Comprehensive Data Protection with MIDAS Room Booking Systems

Safety of your room booking data is paramount - that's why we built a host of features into our MIDAS room booking software to protect against data loss. Our multi-layered approach to safeguarding your valuable booking information ensures peace of mind, business continuity, and mitigates the risk of data loss in various scenarios.

Automated Backups: Built-In Protection for Everyday Needs

MIDAS incorporates an automated backup system for comprehensive data protection:
  • Daily backups: Upon the first successful login each day, a full database backup is created automatically and silently in the background, with no impact on performance.
  • On-demand backups: Administrative users can initiate instant backup creation at any point in time, offering an additional layer of control and flexibility.
  • Customizable retention: Specify the desired storage period for backups (e.g., 7 or 30 days) before automatic deletion, allowing you to manage storage space efficiently.

Off-Server Backups and Disaster Recovery for Added Security

MIDAS goes beyond traditional on-server backups to provide enhanced protection:
  • Automated backups to your inbox: Optionally opt to receive daily database backups via email. This allows you to store off-server copies of your data, offering an additional layer of security in case of server-related issues.
  • Cloud-hosted customer benefits: For cloud-hosted systems, MIDAS implements additional disaster recovery measures:
    • Off-site backups: In addition to the automated backups described above, we also take daily backups of our cloud-hosted customer's MIDAS systems. These are stored off-site in geographically separate locations. This means that in the highly unlikely but unfortunate event of a hardware failure or data center problem, as part of our disaster recovery plan, your data remains backed up without risk of loss.
    • Emergency access: Access an optional Emergency Access add-on, which provides a real-time copy of your MIDAS system running on a different server in a separate data center. This ensures continued access to your booking system in the rare case of service disruptions.

Effortless Restoration: Recover Data Quickly and Easily

Should the need arise, MIDAS allows you to restore data quickly and efficiently:
  • Selective restoration: Quickly restore specific database elements, allowing you to revert to a previous state without affecting recent changes in other areas.
  • User-friendly interface: The intuitive MIDAS interface enables seamless restoration within the system itself, eliminating the need for complex procedures or external tools.
