A Great Cloud and Local Backup from DDS Rescue

If you've had a chance to read my latest article in this month's issue of Dental Products Report, the you know it's about the DDS Rescue device available through Liptak Dental.  Since I've just written the article and the digital edition is online (link to follow) I didn't want to just repeat myself here.  The joy and the power of the blog is to be able to offer you some info you might not get anywhere else while also making it as timely as possible.
In a brief summary, DDS Rescue is a computer system that is in your office.  It connects to your office network and through no intervention from you or your staff, provides both onsite & cloud backups.
For those of you who have either read articles I've written about backups or heard me speak about the subject, you've heard me mention the term "backup chain".  By that I mean you want as many "links" or backups as are feasibly possible for you.  Because of that philosophy, I look upon DDS Rescue as a good solid "link".  I'm not promoting it as the only one you need, but it definitely serves a purpose and should be considered by any office that wants to ensure the survivability of their data.
Here are some things the company themselves have to say about their product.

What Is DDS Rescue?

Onsite System

A Failover Server at Your Office

DDS RescueTM includes an onsite unit—a failover server—for common network failures, which can get your office back up and running in 10 minutes.Think of it as a high-tech spare tire for your practice.

Online System

Your Programs & Data—Stored Securely in the Cloud

In addition to backups on your onsite failover server, the system routinely copies these files to the cloud.Your programs and data are backed up online and stored in multiple, encrypted facilities. If your office is destroyed, your complete server can be accessed via the web so you can view files and manage your business remotely.

U.S.-Based Monitoring 24 Hours a Day

Every Backup Is Verified

Onsite and offsite systems are monitored and tested to make sure all backed-up data is current, should you need a fast restore.

Easy Installation

And Help If You Need It

You do not need a network professional onsite to install DDS Rescue. Simply plug the DDS Rescue unit into your network and our agents will handle the rest remotely. 


  1. Have a philosophy to your backups.
