What is BaaS-V (managed)?

What is BaaS-V (managed)?

BaaS-V stands for Backup as a Service–Virtual, because it’s ideal for backing up virtual machines. It can also backup physical servers and so BaaS-V is great for highly virtualised environments that also have some physical servers. BaaS-V also supports public cloud virtual instances and has application integration. We manage the backup environment on your behalf, 24/7, according to SLAs, providing you with a reliable, managed backup solution. And we monitor backups, taking action where necessary.

How is it deployed?

How is it deployed?

We can back up data located in our data centre, your data centre or the public cloud. We can make 1, 2 or 3 copies & store it/them locally and/or remotely. If it’s to your data centre, we’ll back up to a dedicated hardware storage vault we provide. In our data centre (in your country for data sovereignty purposes or in another EU country), backup will be to a shared storage vault. And if you wish to use public cloud resources, it’ll be to a dedicated virtual instance you provide in either Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. Different vaults can offer different retention periods. Storage array integration offloads the backup workload.

How is it managed & charged?

How is it managed & charged?

We will take care of backup & recovery, along with any configuration changes you request, while still allowing you access to manage backups & recovery via your own graphical user interface (GUI) as preferred. Service level agreements cover service availability & our response times. We take care of licensing & backup data storage. You pay a monthly fee, per client & gigabyte (GB) of data backed up & we pass onto you the storage efficiencies your data achieves (thanks to de-duplication & compression).

Backing up and restoring

Backing up and restoring

Ask us to configure, manage & schedule backups that meet your retention requirements. Or you can, through a self-service GUI. The main unique feature of BaaS-V is that, for hypervisor environments, snapshot backups take seconds/minutes & can take place during production by being throttled according to production workload. Where possible, we use snapshots to perform consistent backups to reduce source VM load. Restoration can be performed by you or us. Remote backup copies & restores take place over the Internet. We can perform single-item restores & we offer deleted data protection to combat administrative error or cyber attacks.

How is it secured?

How is it secured?

We use proven hardware & software from established vendors. This ensures stability and a good feed for security updates etc. We encrypt data in-flight and at rest & you’ll have your own encryption keys. We protect the backup platform located in our data centre, its OS and any management components with anti-virus software. We perform weekly vulnerability scans to check our data centre environment isn’t at risk from misconfiguration. And we monitor usage via a SIEM (security information event management) system.
