Finding, fixing and filling the gaps in your cloud provider’s backups

With great power comes great responsibility. However, when it comes to the power of your data, responsibility is shared. Particularly for backup and security. That’s why we give you the tools to manage responsibility – across data, endpoints, accounts and access management

  • When businesses store sensitive data in the cloud, security of that data rests with the cloud service provider.
  • However, we’ve recently helped more businesses than ever before to move core workloads to the cloud. So we know the risk of downtime due to data availability is at an all-time high.
  • That is, unless you backup your data so that you can quickly recover and maintain Business As Usual. That’s where we, and our Microsoft 36 backup solutions, come in.

ARO’s data protection, backup and recovery services offer seamless integration, rapid automation, and secure dual-location infrastructure. So you can be confident of high availability and rapid recovery at all times to protect your business from data loss.

Backup as a Service is a cloud-based service that provides data backup, storage, and recovery solutions.

Backup as a Service automatically backs up data to a cloud-based server, allowing users to restore information when needed.

Backup as a Service provides several benefits, including scalability to accommodate varying data volumes, cost efficiency through a subscription-based model, automation for consistent data protection, and reliability through robust infrastructure and redundancies offered by service providers.

The main types of Backup as a Service are file-level backup (backing up individual files or directories), image-level backup (capturing entire system images, including operating systems and applications), and database backup (focused on backing up and protecting databases, ensuring data integrity).

Hybrid cloud backup involves combining on-premises and cloud-based backup solutions. Organisations that use hybrid cloud backup can store critical data on-premises for quick access and use the cloud for backup storage. This approach provides flexibility, scalability, and an additional layer of data protection.
