Data backup is not a matter of choice anymore. It has become a necessity in order to protect your company’s vital information. Helia Technologies provides a hosted backup service in a secure, remote location. You can retrieve your data anytime and anywhere you want. Helia’s Hosted Backup features include:

  • Easy data transmission. You don’t need to change disks or purchase additional hardware. Your existing internet bandwidth is enough to get the data to our secure servers.
  • Automatic data backup. You don’t have to worry anymore if your IT guy is not around and you need to back up your files. Helia has a fully automated backup system that runs every day and emails you a daily report, too.
  • Iron-clad protection. You can be assured that your file is protected from theft, corruption, fire, and other threats with our high caliber data protection. Our private and secure facility consists of advanced defense systems that guarantee the security of your data at all fronts.
  • Flexible options. You can choose what you want to back up, when you want it, and how often you need it. You can customize your backup requirements with our multiple account options, allowing you to save money.
  • Instant recovery. Our system is always online and we can restore your corrupted or deleted data in a snap.
  • No duplicate backup of same data. We only backup the changes done on the data stored in our protected facilities to avoid server overload and minimize backup time. You will never backup the same data twice again. Multiple copies of the same file can cause a lot of confusion.
  • Mobile backup. With mobile devices being the growing access point of data creation and retrieval, we backup all your data from your smartphones and tablets. We can also remotely delete your data in case your mobile device is lost.
  • Dynamic backup and integration. We integrate our system seamlessly with LabTech and ConnectWise. Not only that, we also restore and backup Microsoft SQL and Exchange.
  • 24/7 support. Our accommodating security geniuses are always available to assist you at any given time.

Data remains in Canada. We assure that all your data are protected by the Canadian privacy legislation. Your data remain safe and secure within Canadian jurisdiction. US data centers do not have this protection and Canadian businesses may face security risks when storing data in those locations.

The best thing that Helia can probably give you is peace of mind. Knowing that your data is heavily secured and automatically backed up allows you to work with ease and increased efficiency.

"Darvin and the folks at Helia were asked to resolve some issues with our phone system software. They provided the necessary support through collaboration and by learning the software from a different market to specifically service our system. Additionally, Helia now provides our IT support services. We are very pleased with the services provided by Helia Tech and Helia Voice."

Ted Tederoff

Darvin is a very well rounded contributor in terms of his strong skills both in the business and technical realms. He also has an engaging personality that is at the same time politely confident and warm. He also keeps all stakeholders in mind when delivering a project. I would count it an honour to work with him again in the future.

Ken Gooz

I have collaborated with Darvin on several breakthroughs and forward-looking IT projects to which he ALWAYS came through with a solution where there appeared not to be as concepts were more advanced than current technologies.

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

When we use Helia they exceed our expected deliverables and always within our agreed to budget. They work with us, not just for us, all the while keeping our best interests as a company at the core of the project.

We had been looking for a company that not only could get the job done as promised, on time and on budget but one that came with integrity. Helia provides us with a "mean what you say and say what you mean" attitude that has forged a relationship, not just a contract for a project. Our partners at Helia far exceed our expectations each and every time. So if you're thinking of using Helia, I would highly recommend you give them a try, I am sure you'll be impressed. Please email me if you'd like some more insight into Helia.

Robert Barte

I have worked with Dar on many occasions and he has proven himself over and over again to be a man of integrity and someone who is very knowledgable in his field. I would strongly encourage you to talk to him regarding IT Support and phones services in Alberta.

Al Dhalla

My company has hired Dar for telephone wiring services and yes, he met our expectations but there is something more about Dar that I wish to highlight : He is a not just a true networker but I would say, he is a "connector".

Dar and I have been at many meetings and he has never failed to say to me that he wants me to meet 3 or 4 people that he knows are ideal clients for me and that will make a difference to my business and profits.Without expecting any favors too! Dar goes that extra mile to keep a business relationship nurtured and strengthened.

Derek Herman

Apart from being a perfect gentleman , Darvin is a highly detailed IT perfectionist.A pleasure to work with.

Ryan Dockrill

Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies.
