Protecting Unstructured Data for Security-Conscious Customers
Data growth is an ongoing challenge for nearly every business – particularly unstructured data, which typically makes up 70% of an organization’s total data volume. Although some of this data may be read once and never accessed again, it must all be securely stored and readily available, just in case it is required.
Backup Technology helps companies address their data challenges with cloud-based backup and disaster recovery (DR) solutions. “The growth in unstructured data is an increasing burden for IT departments, which are often already struggling to achieve more with fewer resources,” says Mike Colesante, director of U.S. Sales at Backup Technology. “Organizations don’t want to outsource everything, but backup and DR is a great way to start leveraging the cloud, and that’s where we come in.”
With three locations in the U.S. and 18 sites globally across Europe, the U.K. and Australasia, Backup Technology helps a wide range of customers protect their data in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Its customers span multiple sectors, with a focus on those with a security-conscious mindset such as healthcare, manufacturing and oil and gas industries. In total, the company safeguards more than 15 petabytes of data on behalf of its customers.
Backup Technology aims to make backup and DR as simple as possible, so customers can focus on revenue generation and competitive advantage. “Our customers want backup overhead to be as low as possible, while having the assurance that they can recover quickly when needed,” says Colesante. “Our offerings are based on providing enterprise-level DR solutions in a multi-tenancy environment to make them affordable.”
To protect Backup Technology’s bottom line, the company needs to invest in reliable solutions that minimize the time and effort required to retain high service levels. “In the past, we’ve had issues with storage solutions we were using, which meant lost time and the risk of lost data. To avoid this, we recognized it was worth investing in the highest quality products,” adds Colesante.
