Providing trusted data recovery solutions since 2008

Central Data Storage was started in 2008 in partnership with an x-ray software customer who was experiencing computer issues. Our Founder, Ed Conklin, realized the data backup and recovery industry was dominated by inefficient programs and cloud providers with poor customer service.

With a mission to ease the burden of data recovery for customers, Ed provided the direction, vision and foresight to create UnisonBDR, the intellectual property of Central Data Storage. Our software is built specifically to protect healthcare data and to provide seamless disaster recovery, quickly. Central Data Storage’s number one goal is to reduce downtime for customers and provide our partners with premium support, all while saving our clients time and money.

It is important to us to provide the best customer service possible, so our support is a team of real people who are data recovery experts. Our team provides excellent customer service to our clients and partners at all times, ensuring our data recovery experts are available to restore lost or corrupted data quickly.

Our team at Central Data Storage understand how vital your data is to your business, which is why we’re so passionate about protecting it. We use the highest levels of encryption and security – day and night – and provide a full recovery plan that will get your business back up and running, quickly, if you ever face a disaster.

We set the standard with our promise to you: Backup and disaster recovery isn’t just what we do. It’s all we do. We guarantee this through our 24 hour, no cost, Restore Guarantee.
