Understanding the Benefits of our Managed Services for Disaster Recovery, Data Backup, Archiving & Record Management
Global Storage managed services offer a comprehensive range of business benefits to our clients. By using our fully managed services for offsite backup and recovery, organisations have seen a reduction in costs, improved data availability, increased security levels, and significantly faster restore and recovery times. These and other customer benefits are outlined below:
Deliver a More Diverse Risk Management Strategy
It has become increasingly clearer to organisations that the process of managing, protecting, and recovering corporate data through internal IT resources and infrastructure alone is figuratively putting all your 'recovery eggs' in one basket. By outsourcing certain resource intensive, yet critical tasks to Global Storage, such as data backup & disaster recovery services, our clients immediately benefit from a more diverse risk management strategy. The involvement of our expert resources, best practice recovery processes and best-in-class infrastructure minimises your risk in the recovery of data or systems in the event of data loss or an outage.
Minimise the Impact of Data Loss & Downtime
It is estimated that only a fraction of businesses are fully prepared for data loss or downtime, let alone to survive a large scale disaster. Global managed services deliver the very latest in data protection and disaster recovery through the use of innovative enterprise class technology and best practice recovery methodologies. This provides our clients with the knowledge and certainty that they can recover from small failures all the way through to large scale disasters in the fastest possible time, reducing the cost and impact of data loss and downtime.
Leverage the Benefits of Enterprise Infrastructure
Exponential storage growth, new regulatory requirements, and market pressures are demanding more and more out of existing IT storage budgets. Global Storage's multi-million dollar investment in backup, archival & disaster recovery infrastructure, support systems, and best practises methodologies allows our clients to leverage the benefits of enterprise infrastructure without the direct capital investment required when owning the technology yourself. Delivered as an ongoing monthly charge, our managed services deliver a no compromise approach to security, performance, reliability and recovery.
Limit reliance on Legacy Tape Systems
Recovery from tape has always relied on often untested and potentially unreliable media, along with the intensive manual process of moving and recovering data from an off-site location. Most organisations now recognise the danger of relying on these legacy tape systems as their primary method for data and disaster recovery. Global Storage offers a highly reliable, secure, on-line backup and replication service which automatically replicates data off-site to our secure data centre environment without the risk of human error, faulty tape media or the chance of losing tapes in transit. With many months worth of data stored on online disk, your data can be recovered immediately without the risks associated with manual tape systems.
Protect More Data, More efficiently
Organisations and their IT departments have been under tremendous pressure to deploy and manage increasingly more complex data protection and storage environments to accommodate the explosion of corporate information. Global Storage DataReady™ & EnvironmentReady™ managed services use data de-duplication, compression and secure encryption technology to allow much larger volumes of data to be protected, using less resources, in significantly faster times. Whether your data resides in the corporate data centre, or at a branch office location, backups or replication jobs that used to take hours can now be completed in minutes over existing WAN communication lines.
