Logicalis US provides modern backup solution for virtualized storage systems

Logicalis US said it has announced Backup-as-a-Service (BUaaS), which offers organizations the ability to back up and restore as much, or as little, data as necessary to a fast and secure, enterprise-grade cloud managed by Logicalis.

With this BUaaS offering, Logicalis will design, install and manage an on-premise Veeam backup solution as well as provide the cloud target for off-site storage.

The new Logicalis Backup-as-a-Service offering integrates industry-leading compression, de-duplication, encryption and WAN acceleration with highly scalable, reliable, fast and affordable cloud storage to deliver the type of performance enterprise customers are used to achieving in their on-site data centers. The service has been optimized for enterprise-grade workloads and can lower costs by up to 30 percent over disk- or tape-based systems. Data sets are compressed by 10 to 30 times, on average, to speed transmission and reduce storage costs.

Logicalis employs over 4,000 people worldwide, including highly trained service specialists who design, deploy and manage complex IT infrastructures to meet the needs of over 6,500 corporate and public sector customers. It is a division of Datatec Limited, listed on the Johannesburg and London AIM Stock Exchanges, with revenues of over USD6 billion.
