In today’s business environment, availability and accessibility to company data from anywhere at any time is critical. And if your business were to lose its data due to malicious software, system crashes, or a disaster, it could potentially mean the loss of customers, vendors, partners or even the entire business. From small businesses to the large enterprise, a data protection and disaster recovery plan is critical. Your data protection plan should be addressed at multiple levels. On site backup polices, offsite data storage, retention and archival policies, industry compliance and governance are just a few points to consider. Recovery point objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) should be assessed as well. These objectives will help in determining how much downtime and data loss your business can tolerate or absorb during an outage.

We leverage these partnerships, along with years of experience, to provide our customers with the best solution for their business data protection needs.
From standard on site backup solutions to offsite repositories and full enterprise replication systems. We work with our customers to provide a data protection solution that is tailored to meet their needs, their budget and their recovery point objectives.
Some of our data protection services include: Endpoint Backups, Backup as a Service, Veeam Cloud Connect services and also Co-Location Services:

With our endpoint backup solutions, you’ll rest assured knowing your device data is protected and always available at anytime from anywhere.
Backup as a Service (BaaS)
In the event of a data loss situation, you must feel confident that that your data recovery options are available. Unfortunately, many organizations discover that their current backup solution is not working at the worst time; when they need to restore data. This is a painful and frightening situation that many businesses have experienced.
For this reason, backup as a service is becoming a more and more popular alternative. As workloads increase, IT departments are stretched thin, data continues to grow and the high demand for the “always on” operation continues to rise. There is little to no room for downtime due to data loss, data corruption or misconfigured backup jobs. Business owners are finding more and more value to outsourcing this crucial piece of their operations technology needs.
With our BasS offering, Enformix can take the reins of your daily backup and recovery operations, allowing your staff to focus on primary business initiatives. At the same time, your data backup and recovery expenditures shift from a CapEx to a more predictable and budget friendly OpEx.
Enformix will provide and maintain all of the necessary hardware, software and licensing on premise at your facility as well as offsite repositories. All backup and recovery management tasks are handled by our trained dedicated backup professionals. Tasks including backups of workstations, laptops, physical servers, virtual servers, virtual infrastructure, job creation, backup job performance tuning, backup job success/failure alerting and reporting, dynamic sizing of backup repositories, proactive problem identification and resolution management, daily, weekly and monthly reporting on backup activities and more are all handled by our team. Customers are also provided access to an intuitive web interface that allows them to locate backups by virtual machine name, backup job, or keywords for files and folders.
When using Enformix’ s Backup as a Service solution, you’ll be able to rest assured that all of your organizations data backup, recovery and availability needs are taken care of. If you are considering a move to BaaS or would like more information, contact us today.
Veeam Cloud Connect Backup and Replication
