Data can be found in many different locations in your organisation. It may sit in your data centre, or a remote office or the public cloud. So how can you make sure that you back up and protect all of your sources of data, wherever it sits?
Azure Backup can protect data in different locations and tailor your backup strategy to the needs of each location. It is a simple and cost-effective Backup as a Service that extends tried and trusted tools on premises with rich and powerful tools in the cloud. It works seamlessly with Azure Site Recovery using a shared portal for a straightforward user experience.
Azure Backup is a cost-effective way of plugging any gaps in your current backup strategy or can even be used to replace your current onsite backup completely. With our expertise in cloud backup and Microsoft products, Cloud Direct can advise you on the best backup strategy that provides comprehensive data protection for your organisation.
Azure Backup can protect your critical applications, including SharePoint, Exchange and SQL Server; files and folders; Windows servers and clients; and Azure Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) virtual machines.
As data grows exponentially over time, the best way to store it for long-term retention is traditionally on tape or disk. This can be expensive, create storage issues and reduce the ability to recover data quickly. Azure Backup offers an alternative to tapes with significant cost savings and shorter recovery times.
Retaining data for years is essential for business or compliance requirements. Azure Backup allows you retain data, including different versions of it, for up to 99 years so you can meet all your regulatory requirements.
Backup is efficient over the network and on your disk. Once the initial backup is complete, only incremental changes are sent at a defined frequency. Built-in features such as compression, encryption, longer retention and bandwidth throttling help to boost IT efficiency.
Your backup data is secure while in transit and at rest. The backup data can either be stored in local or geo-replicated storage depending on your needs. With 99.9% service availability, Azure Backup provides peace of mind that your data is secure and protected.
Backup as a Service offers a scalable and cost-effective alternative to onsite backup as you’ll only pay for what you use and you won’t need make any substantial upfront investments to set it up.
