Delivered on Microsoft Azure, Innovative V's Cloud Backup service consists of two core solutions, relevant depending on the type of environment and workload to be protected - in the cloud or on-premises.
The Azure Cloud Backup service, integrated into Azure Virtual Machines (Azure VMs), is cost effective, can be instantly enabled and is simple to use. It can be switched on for both new and existing deployments of Azure VMs and the whole VM and associated data is protected.
Cloud Backup can protect on-premises physical servers and VMs running on Hyper-V and VMware. It can either integrate with an existing System Center Data Protection Manager platform or be deployed as a new Microsoft Azure Backup Server to provide a disk-to-disk-to-cloud solution.
Organisations typically choose to implement backup to protect from data loss resulting from:
Accidental deletion or modification to data resulting from unintentional human error, such as accidently saving over a document, hardware failure or damage, natural disasters, malicious damage resulting from a targeted cybersecurity attack, originating from either outside the business or through an internal user and a ransomware attack that encrypts all data with the attacker then demanding money.
Implementing Innovative V's Cloud Backup means that there is no need to manage the purchase, storage or disposal of tapes.
With Innovative V's Cloud Backup you pay a fixed licence fee per server and then for the storage of your backup data.
Data can be recovered quickly and easily as all backup points are available at all times directly through Azure
Backups have built in encryption, both in transit to the cloud and whilst stored there.
Innovative V’s Cloud Backup service is suitable for any business of any size looking to protect their data or modernise their existing backup infrastructure.Innovative V’s Cloud Backup has been created to support any business looking to implement a cloud backup solution.
