  • Improved Productivity: Helps mitigate the risk of catastrophic data loss and unnecessary downtime, with an RTO of down to 15 minutes

Why Adopt Backup as a Service?

Although many organisations are backing up their data, many still face a number of challenges including:

  • Comply​ing with the Best Practice 3-2-1 Rule: Ensuring 3 copies of data are stored on 2 types of media, with 1 copy being off-site
  • Getting Backups Off-Site: This can be challenging due to limited bandwidth, exploding data volumes and a lack of resources required to build or maintain a true off-site backup repository. Some organisations may be faced with the logistics of using tape backups or USB drives which need to be physically taken off-site.
  • Reliability: Infrequent testing of the DR process due to complexity, time and cost involved means some organisations may have an inadequate backup strategy in place.
  • Lengthy Recovery Times from Data Loss: Resulting in considerable downtime and financial impact to the business
