No More Missed Backups!

Stroud Cloud is designed to ensure that your Vital Data is automatically and securely stored, and only locally.

  • Locally stored and only you can read its contents.
  • Your data is encrypted before leaving your PC.
  • Data is stored locally so is protected under UK laws.
  • Its very Affordable.

It's Safe and Securely Stored only in Stroud

Your data is encrypted before it is sent from your location and only you will hold the encryption key, so no one else can read your data, even if they somehow got hold of it!

A Total Loss wouldn't be Possible

Fires, Thefts, Floods or Ransomeware cannot harm your backed up data if its stored with Stroud Cloud.

Because its stored in multiple data sets you are protected from damage that could be caused by corruption (possibly by malware or system failure) which then over writes a good copy.

(This counters threats from Ransome Malware.)

Backups are Scheduled to Suit You

Incremental and Full data sets are produced by your PC or Laptop (when its on), encrypted and compressed and sent all automatically to us for storage.

Schedules are determined by you so we cover any compliance requirements you have.

Recovering Your Data is Fast!

You can download your data via broadband, or if this is not fast enough (maybe you have a large data set or slow broadband), we can deliver it to you via portable media. *

You can have your data brought to you and restored at USB3 speed

* This option is chargeable at normal hourly rates during normal hours of business, but do ask if special arrangements are required, we will always do our best to help!

This is liklely to be faster for larger data retrievals than broadband.

You can manage your own data store, so you decide what to keep stored and what to remove through your own browser.
