58% of data cannot be recovered according to a recent report^
Failed backups and unverified restores impact productivity and result in lost data. Data storage and the accompanying data storage solutions are more relevant than ever.
Having three months of data online and being able to do our own restores through GlobalView is a great advantage for us – it now takes only minutes to restore a file. We now get reports to say that our data is fully protected, with no errors in replication and no errors in the backup. Not many IT managers know this 100%.

There are different types of business-critical data across organisations.
Business running legacy systems are disproportionately impacted by data availability challenges. This can be due to a number of factors such as lack of core functionality, lack of capability and reluctance to adopt a modern and comprehensive data protection strategy.
But do you know what the accessibility of your data or the recovery plan is?
There are multiple facets to your backup and disaster recovery strategy.
DataReady covers your data protection strategy and ensures that you’ve got full backups when you need them. You’ve got control over your data and can restore on-demand.
365Ready is an add-on to DataReady that ensures that all your Microsoft365 data is backed up, outside of the M365 retention policy.
EnvironmentReady is our disaster recovery solution, which ensures you are covered in the event of total data loss or corruption. Our disaster recovery specialists work to get you back up and running.
DataReady delivers an all-inclusive backup and recovery service. With our highly skilled team of backup and recovery engineers, your data is in great hands. We take away the complexity and simplify your strategy meaning that you don’t need to manage multiple vendors, hardware and software solutions. Your team can focus on ensuring that your IT strategy delivers increased value to the business instead of managing tapes.
Data accessibility is key. Too often the accidental use of the ‘delete’ button can cause a ripple effect through organisations. Southern Rural Water (SRW) have seen the benefits of using the DataReady solution.
In reviewing their business continuity plan, SRW recognised that their traditional tape backup system posed a significant risk to the organisation about the time it would take to recover their environment, with no guarantee that it could recover fully.
As part of DataReady SRW leverage the fully managed online data backup service. They can now restore three months of data online via GlobalView user web portal.
The ASD Essential 8 from the Australian Cyber Security Centre lists daily backups as one of their key mitigation strategies. As part of the maturity model their recommendations include:
DataReady supports all these recommendations.
Different industry requirements may mean you need to have data backed up at secure offsite locations.
We understand that not being able to access your data when you expect it has consequences. For us, that’s underpinned by our financially penalising SLA’s.
This means that if we don’t deliver on protecting your data as we promised, we’ll pay you.
