Dubuque Data Services Fun With Flags

More Name Your Holiday Fun!

Employees at Dubuque Data Services have had fun with a couple more Make Your Own Holiday events. In May, team skills were put to the test with the Pirate De Mayo holiday. Teams worked together to decipher a Spanish treasure hunt, walked the plank, and created sombreros out of small balloons. The June holiday was the Fun with Flags holiday. These events had teams thinking fast on their feet as they answered flag trivia, named flags, and even made their own flag. Of course it would not have been complete without the one minute Fun with Flags video to describe their new flag. Keep watching to see what the July holiday will be, as your DMS provider sharpens their teamwork skills!

Dubuque Data Services Cloud Backup

Lose the Chore, Save the Data. Cloud backup is here!

Nothing is more important to your business than your data and yet maintaining it can seem like such a hassle. Many times it is a manual process, sometimes needing to switch around hardware. Then the backup isn’t entirely safe unless it is moved off site. And just to make sure it is up to date, this needs to be done every day. What a chore!

 

Lucky for you, Dubuque Data Services has a solution to take the chore out of keeping your dealer management system data safe and secure. With the DDS Cloud Backup solution, your data is automatically backed up every night to the cloud for a 30 to 45 day rotation. The data is transferred and stored securely and is ready to be restored if needed. The cloud backup does not change our policy as far as the data goes either. Your data is still completely yours, whether it is in the cloud or on your server.
Don’t wait for a disaster like a flood or an old server fail, only to discover that you don’t have the latest data to restore. Contact Dubuque Data Services at 800.382.3733 to find out how you can protect your most important asset without the daily chore.
