Serving Security Across the Stack
From emails, contacts and calendars in Exchange to messaging in Teams, group sites in SharePoint, documents in Word and file repositories in OneDrive, Office 365 demands comprehensive data backup coverage.
Metallic Backup as a Service offers a way for SMBs to embrace the shared responsibility model without increasing complexity. As noted by Brigman, small businesses “need to identify data that needs to be recovered, they need long-term and extended data retention beyond recycle bin limits and they need to meet service-level agreement compliance requirements.” Addressed in isolation, each of these tasks is fraught with potential pitfalls — but Metallic makes things easy.
“Metallic BaaS lets companies protect their Microsoft investment with unlimited Azure storage and unlimited retention built in to meet SLA regulatory requirements,” he says, “along with offering granular search and flexible point-in-time and out-of-place restore options across all Office 365 apps so data can stay protected, compliant and rapidly recoverable.”
Even better, costs are transparent and per user, including components and storage required to back up and retrieve data on demand. As a result, SMBs only pay for what they use — and get exactly what they need.
Streamlining Backup as a Service Adoption
Of course, even the best BaaS solution won’t help SMBs if it takes an entire IT team weeks to integrate and install.
Metallic makes it easy. “One thing we’ve seen is that SMBs have a limited IT budget,” says Brigman. “They can’t afford the burden associated with administering and nursing solutions. As a SaaS-delivered solution, businesses can easily configure Metallic and be up and running within minutes.”
Backups can be tailored to business needs, configured based on retention priorities and set to automated schedules that best meet current operational requirements. As a solution built on the Azure cloud, Metallic delivers rapid recovery of Office 365 data anywhere, anytime, along with the ability to maintain existing file structure. “Microsoft offers a robust, best-in-class productivity suite,” notes Brigman. “With Metallic, businesses can maximize their Microsoft investment by comprehensively protecting Office 365 data from today’s threats, all while considerably reducing the workload for their admins.”
SMBs in the cloud require the same protection and performance as their enterprise counterparts, but don’t have access to comparable IT staff or resources. Metallic BaaS bridges the gap with high-performing, easily configurable and completely customizable backup services that are enterprise-grade — and SMB-friendly.
