Tranquil PC a major WHS device manufacturer is looking to expand upon and provide solutions to those users who have a need to “backup the backup”. They are putting in place a new on-line backup service called Tranquil Life Server (TLS) – the ultimate Home Server Backup Service. TLS is short for Tranquil Life Server. From their announcement on this new service:
What is Tranquil Life Server (TLS)? The TLS facility is the Fort Knox of data backup, for your absolute peace of mind.
Your Home Server already provides excellent PC backup, Data Duplication and Server Backup functions. This means you can rest easy when it comes to the data integrity of your Home or Small Office PCs.
However, there is always the lingering question, what if there was a fire, a theft, or other serious loss of the server itself ? This may be very unlikely, but it’s not impossible.
The costs of off-site data backup services, previously set up for larger corporations and banks, are now becoming affordable. But there are serious questions to be answered before committing your data to these servers ? 1) Is the data server to be TRUSTED, ie where is it, who owns it – are they to be trusted ? 2) In the event that you do have a problem, with the loss of data and your Home Server, would you be able to wait for days or weeks whilst it is downloaded ?
The questionnaire can be found here. As a token of their appreciation for taking the time to complete this VERY short questionnaire, Tranquil will be draw a name from the list of respondents before the end of the year. This lucky person will receive an AVA RS3 Music Server.
