Backup & DR Services
Cloud Backup or Backup as a Service (BaaS) protects the customer’s data in the cloud. This allows the customer to recover a file or a server back to hardware on the customer premises. Cloud Backup may integrate with a customer’s on-premises backup software, such as CommVault, ArcServe, or Symantec, and often serves as a replacement for tape. Alternately, Backup as a Service is a managed solution in which the provider brings the software to the customer premises.
Cloud DR or Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) protects the customer’s business, as opposed to only the data. This allows the customer to recover their entire IT environment –servers, storage, network, data, and apps –in the cloud. Customers can quickly resume business operations in a matter of hours., instead of waiting until their onsite environment is rebuilt. Disaster Recovery typically leverages replication technologies, which can be host-based (at the server level), like Double-Take or Zerto, or array-based (at the storage level), like EMC or NetApp replication.
Cloud Compute & Managed Hosting are commonly referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). This offering can be any combination of shared (multi-tenant) virtual servers or dedicated physical or virtual servers that are in the service provider’s data center(s). Customers may choose shared/public or dedicated/private based on their application or compliance requirements. The provider will manage the compute hardware (servers, network, and storage), and optionally the virtualization, OS, database and application layers as well. The provider will also deliver very high uptime (99.9% +), as well as security, backup, disaster recovery, Active Directory integration, etc. as the client requires.
Desktop as a Service
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) -sometimes referred to as Hosted/Managed Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) -is a cloud solution that replaces traditional desktop management. Virtual desktops are stored in the provider’s data center and accessed through a secure web portal. Instead of being tied to a physical, company-issued device with all their applications and data, employees can access their desktops using any web-enabled devices of their choosing—PCs or Macs, tablets, smart phones, and more. This approach allows for simplified, unified desktop management and increased productivity and security, all without the immense Capex and maintenance costs required for an on-premises VDI solution.
