This article outlines the process on how to perform the initial backup to a removable hard drive on the customer site. Then transport the removable hard drive to the data center and copy the data directly onto AhsayCBS backup server, bypassing the Internet.
This procedure is highly recommended when the data size is very large and or the internet connection is slow.
Although this procedure is described for AhsayCBS backup server it can also be applied to other backup destinations like FTP, SFTP, and Cloud Storage destinations.
