Opti9 (formerly "opti9") today announces the availability of its Backups-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution for customers’ Microsoft Office 365 data. This solution addresses customers’ growing requirements for a single-provider solution to fully manage their business continuity and disaster recovery requirements, which span a range of platforms including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
As a growing number of enterprises migrate toward hybrid IT strategies, many SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365 have become critical to companies’ core operations. Opti9’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 enhances the automatic data replication Microsoft provides across its data centers and helps ensure availability to users across Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, and OneDrive.
Opti9’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 integrates the company’s Off-site Backups orchestration platform with Veeam’s Data Mover component to provide comprehensive backup services that enhance the flexibility and resiliency of critical data with the ability to access and restore information at any time. Opti9 ’s CloudPanel provides customers with full transparency into their environments as well as multiple options for data recovery, including restoring data to Office 365 or local/client-owned exchange servers and exporting raw data directly or to .PST files.
The solution allows customization of backup policies and data retention periods per-job, user, or group, as well as the ability to mix and match between Office 365, SharePoint, and OneDrive. This unique capability enables users to meet specific SLA requirements as well as compliance regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, and HI-TECH, which require immutable data, long-term retention capabilities, and the ability to restore to specific points in time for both current and former employees.
Opti9’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 is also an effective ransomware and malware mitigation tool, providing the ability to restore modified and deleted data in the event of a cyberattack.
“Customers’ production infrastructures are shifting to include a multitude of platforms that span public and private cloud, colocation, on-premise environments, and SaaS. They are looking for a single pane of glass and a central point of accountability for their resilience and assurance across these hybrid infrastructures,” explains Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer, Opti9. “[Opti9’s] BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 provides an added layer of resiliency and security for customers by replicating data to a multitude of potential targets, including those ‘air-gapped’ from the internet as well as those supporting high levels of encryption and compliance. At [Opti9], it’s important that we provide comprehensive solutions for our customers’ IT needs, and we are very excited to introduce this new offering to our growing portfolio of services.”
As a high-touch, long-term IT partner, Opti9 takes full ownership of customers’ backups, providing one point of accountability and security for the management, monitoring, and recovery of their data. Opti9 facilities feature superior physical security on-premises as well as encrypted connectivity to customer networks covered by Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
