Data loss, downtime, security incidents … They are all part of a company’s worst nightmares. The stakes are high, so many organisations look to a Managed Service Provider (MSP) to help them avoid infrastructure problems and disruptions. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet to protect a company. What’s more, you always have to keep in mind that something can and will go wrong. Veeam has therefore developed a backup solution that restores data in the event of an emergency.
System failure can cost a company a lot of money, especially when its service are unavailable for a long period of time. For organisations who serve customers, reputational damage is often the worst consequence of a disruption. People today want to be helped in an instant and do not hesitate to go to the competition if a brand fails to meet their high expectations. Most companies do not have the knowledge and skills to tackle this problem on their own. So they need a reliable partner who can help them ensure the highest possible uptime.
The complexity of today’s IT infrastructure and applications makes it almost impossible to eliminate failures. Most companies operate with a combination of physical workloads, cloud environments, SaaS, etc. At Insight, we are convinced that a mindset change is needed to increase the reliability of such an infrastructure. Protecting data is not enough, you need a backup system that guarantees fast recovery. To deal with this new reality, our experts work with leading technology vendors who provide innovative solutions that help MSPs find new ways forward.
For data backup and recovery, Veeam is the undisputed authority and has been named a Magic Quadrant Leader by Gartner for five consecutive times. The platform is the most complete solution on the market to protect and increase the reliability of a customer’s infrastructure.
Basic backup solutions do not offer advanced protection and recovery capabilities, even if they call themselves modern data management platforms. They may also be unable to support complex IT infrastructures with modern workloads that are spread across containers, SaaS and multiple clouds. Veeam’s platform has all the capabilities of a future-proof and reliable solution. It provides access to a new method of data management and ensures that data is available in any application and cloud infrastructure. With a single platform, you optimise the uptime of all virtual, physical and cloud-native workloads and applications.
The platform is straightforward, easy to manage and designed to be integrated into any environment. Users do not waste time on manual processes or unintuitive consoles, because Veeam adds a lot of automation that enables fast troubleshooting and immediate recovery. Built-in intelligence identifies common issues and solves them before they can impact a customer’s operational activities. And if something does go wrong, data can be immediately restored to avoid downtime for business-critical assets.
Since the outbreak of the global pandemic, every company is looking for solutions that increase their business resilience. The ability to recover from failures, disruptions and cyber attacks will therefore be part of the strategy of any future-proof business. Most data protection vendors offer no verification that backups are recoverable, leaving a company vulnerable to downtime and ransomware attacks. Traditional data backup often falls into two categories: vendors that have stopped innovating and merely focus on support, and suppliers with new solutions who stand out because of their marketing skills instead of their proven track record.
Insight’s experts explore the market to distinguish these solutions from technology that is really capable of meeting the challenges of today and tomorrow. With Veeam, you get the confidence you need to thrive in uncertain times. It brings increased reliability, improved security and guaranteed business continuity in the event of an incident. The platform offers powerful industry-first capabilities with hundreds of thousands of customers across the world.
The only thing that is certain these days is that data volumes and infrastructure complexity will continue to increase. As an MSP, you and your customers need a sustainable solution that is reliable in all circumstances. Before you can achieve this level of reliability, it is important to take a step back and assess whether the services you offer and the tools you use still meet today’s requirements. Fortunately, you are not on your own. Insight can help you improve and adapt your services with advanced technology.
