When you hear the phrases “Back up your data” or “Did you back that up to the cloud?” you often don’t think much past “Yes, it’s in the cloud, that’s backed up correct?” or “Backup is in the plan.”

However, in reality, when talking about backup in the corporate world it’s so much more than that. Information and data, whether on-premises or in the cloud, is the essence of what makes up the majority of companies today; and if you lose that data, you risk losing the company.

A recent statistic finds that 93% of companies that lost their data center capabilities for a period of 10 days or longer due to unforeseen circumstances filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. A strong reason to put backup on the front burner.

SoftwareONE has created a solution that will not only provide a backup platform to support your evolving business needs, but also helps your organization meet the growing demands of data head on – BackupSimple. This allows you to take the complexity and costs out of your backup needs and let you focus on your business – not what could go wrong with it.

BackupSimple is based on four key principles:

  • Scope – we leverage Commvault as the tool behind the BackupSimple service which allows us to provide you with a comprehensive managed service and the most extensive set of capabilities for your backup needs whether the data resides on-premises or in the cloud (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS)
  • Ownership – you maintain control of your data at all points throughout the extended environment; it’s your data and it’s backed up to your cloud storage, not SoftwareONE’s
  • Control – you maintain access to the console to keep tabs on your data so that you can respond to your business needs, however this is supported by 24/7 Commvault experts should questions or needs arise
  • Pay for what you use – in other words, OpEx, allowing you to grow and scale as your business demands. Further, SoftwareONE’s extensive expertise in regards to Azure and Office 365 environments combined with BackupSimple provide you with an integrated console to ease the management of your backup solution

Backup services are key for corporations today for many reasons but first and foremost is the fact that our data is our lifeline, but is often times treated as an afterthought. For example, the old tried and true tape for backup – 50% of tape restores fail, and 34% of companies (Source: Storage Magazine) fail to test their tape backups in the first place!

Companies today have typically not leveraged the cloud in the ways that they can, or should, for their backup services – BackupSimple can streamline these processes for you. Ensure backup is in place and put in a system that lets you feel confident in your backup services to focus on the more strategic initiatives across the company, learn more about SoftwareONE’s BackupSimple today.

You’re in control, you own the data: We manage the solution.
