Backup As A Service in Calgary

Looking for a BaaS Provider in Calgary?

Backup as a Service (BaaS) helps small companies grow and larger companies manage their budgets. When you invest in BaaS, your organization can make smarter decisions about future planning because backup costs are fixed based on storage needs. BaaS is a backup solution that connects your systems to a private, public or hybrid cloud managed by a managed IT provider.

Backup as a Service is right for organizations who have outgrown their storage backup and need to go through a costly upgrade. It is also the right solution for organizations that want to get away from relying on a person to take their backups offsite on a daily basis.

The automated backup takes any errors out of the hands of staff, increases the likelihood of having a current and complete backup offsite, and provides peace of mind. Instead of worrying about unpredictable capital expenses, a BaaS provider can keep your data safe and accessible while you can focus on achieving your business goals.

What is BaaS?

BaaS is a cloud-based service that allows an organization to automatically back up data securely online. Rather than tape backups or investing in your own server backups, your data is uploaded through an FTP or through an internet connection to a secure, local site.

At The ITeam, we partner with Veeam to help eliminate data loss and ransomware for your business. Our BaaS service includes:

Eliminate downtime and minimize data loss.

Keep data safe with native, immutable, malware-safe storage for your backups.

Decrease the cost of long-term data archival and retention by up to 20x.

Instantly recover even more workloads, including Microsoft SQL, Oracle and NAS.

Confidently protect company data at home, in the cloud and beyond.

We backup full system replicas of our clients’ servers rather than just data backups.

Benefits of BaaS

Peace of Mind

There are a number of benefits to having BaaS, not the least of which is peace of mind. Knowing that your data is being automatically backed up to an offsite, secure, and local location allows you to rest easier.

Cost Savings

Additional benefits include significant cost savings. If your organization has outgrown its legacy backup solution, BaaS can be a cost-effective alternative to investing in new infrastructure.

Improved Business Continuity

Outsourcing your backup service can ensure that your backup data is available even if your facility has an infrastructure failure, power outage, or cyber-attack by combining your BaaS service with our disaster recovery solution.

Who Needs BaaS?

Are you worried about the age of your existing infrastructure?

Do you want to avoid the often exorbitant cost of capital investments to improve your infrastructure?

Are you looking for a solution that will give you peace of mind and cost-effective data storage?

Are you confident you can restore current copies of your servers quickly in the event of a catastrophic failure?

You should consider Backup as a Service (BaaS). Virtually every organization in every industry needs BaaS.

BaaS with The ITeam is scalable, so you only pay for the storage you need.

The biggest reason every organization needs backup is that traditional, physical onsite backups present serious problems for a number of reasons. The most common are:

  • They are subject to the same natural disasters that would compromise the primary data systems if housed locally.
  • They are subject to the same cyber-attack vulnerability if administered internally.
  • Recovery and restoration generally take much longer to complete, and every hour, day, and week without data is significant for most businesses.

Why Hire a BaaS Provider?

While you can just sign up for an automated cloud backup service and have your data pulled into the cloud, do you know where it’s going?

For many organizations, Canadian data residency is a necessity for compliance and security.

Offsite backups are not complicated. Once the initial setup is complete, data is backed up automatically and continuously.

Image-based backups provide near-immediate recovery for virtual machines, and online backups ensure that an organization’s valuable data is securely stored in the cloud, accessible from anywhere in case the business is displaced.

This data is fully recoverable and restorable so that an organization can continue to remain operational regardless of the issue.

The ITeam’s BaaS Services

The benefit of working with a BaaS provider like The ITeam is in knowing that your data is securely stored locally.

In addition, we offer additional services beyond the simple storage of your data offsite, including 24/7 data monitoring, remediation should you suffer a loss of your network or be the victim of a cybercrime and more.

With The ITeam’s BaaS service you can:

Meet Compliance Requirements

For certain industries, compliance regulations require certain data protection policies to be in place.

For example, private medical practice is required to submit a PIA demonstrating the steps they’ve taken to protect patient data. Having an offsite backup is one way to demonstrate that effort.

Data Protection

Having offsite backup as a service can protect you from natural disasters or cybercrime that might compromise your access to your data.

A law firm, for example, might choose secure, offsite backup to prevent any risk of loss during an active case.

Cost Management

BaaS is a cost-effective solution that allows an organization to pay only for the storage they need.

For seasonal industries, such as construction, this can help the company better manage costs.

BaaS vs DRaaS

With “as a service” solutions becoming more popular, there has been growing confusion between DRaaS (disaster recovery as a service) and BaaS (Backup as a service). They are different but complementary.

While both BaaS and DRaaS are parts of your overall disaster recovery solution, BaaS is the solution for your long-term data storage: company files, IP, employee information, and more.

DRaaS is focused on preserving the operational data and infrastructure upon which your organization is currently running. It’s designed to ensure a speedy recovery after an incident.

BaaS is focused on reducing the cost of storage and reducing infrastructure investment costs.
