More and more companies are opting for a backup solution in the cloud. The different variants of this method are simple, safe and efficient. Traditionally, a company’s IT department backs up to tapes or disks. Many companies transport these tapes or discs to a second location or vault. This makes your backup more susceptible to damage or loss. In addition, backups are often not tested, making it uncertain whether all data can be saved in the event of loss, fire or theft.
PAY FOR THE SERVICE INSTEAD OF THE HARDWARE
At Infradax, we continue to invest in our own BaaS (Backup as a Service) infrastructure and with the help of Veeam Cloud Connect or Dell EMC Data Protection Suite (DPS) you can easily extend your backup infrastructure to our cloud. We offer hosted backup repositories or complete backup services with both Veeam and Dell DPS.
For example, you are assured of a managed backup environment for a fixed amount per month and you simply pay for this service, instead of having to invest in a backup environment and then also have to manage it.
THE EASE OF BACKUP WITH VEEAM OR DELL
Easily create physical and virtual backups offsite and replicate VMs (virtual machines) offsite without the cost and complexity of building and managing an offsite infrastructure. Whether you choose Dell EMC Data Protection Suite or Veeam Cloud Connect, we provide a fully integrated, fast and secure way to backup and replicate to our data center cloud repository.
BACKUP AS A SERVICE VERSUS ONLINE BACKUP
Backup as a Service (BaaS) is often confused with online backup, but there is a difference. With online backup, the IT department uses the cloud as the destination for the backup, similar to a disk or tape. With our BaaS solution, everything is taken care of and we arrange everything. We manage and maintain the necessary equipment, applications, processes and management in our own data center.
The big difference with, for example, Azure or AWS is that with us you know where the data is physically located. In the event of a calamity, the data can be physically collected and taken at our location.
