Cloud backup solutions for all of your needs.

As data continues to grow and compliance requirements evolve, backing up your data is becoming increasingly more difficult every day. Are you trying to get rid of tape? Is long-term retention causing your backup infrastructure to grow out of control? Are you concerned about recoverability of old tapes? IDS offers secure cloud backup solutions that range from fully managed to simple offsite retention of long-term backups.

We can help you find the backup solution that works best for your specific needs.

Top 4 Reasons To Backup With IDS

  • You’re in control of how to best back up your data. Choose from several service models and options, and keep the ability to change at anytime.
  • Pay as you grow. Move toward an operational cost model where you pay only for what you use, and reduce maintenance and licensing expenditures.
  • Steer your IT team to higher priorities. Our managed service options mean you can use your existing manpower and resources for more strategic efforts while leave the management of backup and restores to us.
  • Control backup sprawl. Control capital spending on backup software and hardware targets by relying on the cloud and turning backup in to a utility.

Secure cloud backup on your terms.

IDS cloud / PROTECT Backup services offer several different options to support your cloud backup needs.

For organizations looking to fully outsource backup, we offer a straightforward and cost-effective backup solution that includes all backup software, hardware, and cloud storage. Eliminate the costs of backup software, maintenance, disk targets, tape, and management by working with a partner who provides this as a core competency. This completely operational backup model includes:

  • Enterprise-class backup software based on your requirements
  • Onsite IDS backup appliance for quick backups and recovery
  • Pricing model as a monthly fee, based on amount of data protected
  • Offsite storage in a secure IDS cloud vault for long-term retention
  • IDS management of the entire solution, including servers, backups, recovery, and cloud storage

For smaller environments or remote offices, IDS offers direct cloud backup using a simple agent or virtual appliance. Data is deduplicated before being sent to the cloud to reduce the need for additional bandwidth. A Backup Assessment is a great way to find out if your data can leverage simple direct cloud backup.

If you already have a well-functioning backup infrastructure deployed, IDS can offer offsite options to eliminate tape and reduce costs. We offer options like CommVault, NetBackup, Avamar, Data Domain and Quantum. Or we can use a gateway appliance to extend your backup environment to use one of our secure cloud vaults for long-term retention. This customized approach provides much-needed versatility to augment your existing backup environment. It’s an ideal way to extend your infrastructure to a secure cloud environment.
