StorageCraft Cloud Backup
Protect The Data Created in your Cloud-Based Applications From Acts of Human Nature
Even though your organization’s SaaS data is in the cloud, that doesn’t mean it’s completely safe.
When it comes to working in cloud-based applications, the option of granular recovery isn’t a given. But the opportunity for human error is.
Humans delete important files, overwrite one another’s documents, and accidentally download viruses. And SaaS vendors may or may not have a recovery solution for you. If they do, there’s no guarantee that it'll be easy, that you’ll get the data in a useful format, or that the recovery will happen quickly or inexpensively.
StorageCraft Cloud Backup provides granular protection of your business’s hosted data. Once set up, backups happen automatically. In a few seconds, you can recover the version of a file or folder that you need, in its original format, through an easy-to-use web interface. And you don’t need to sweat storage space, software upgrades, or the possibility of an onsite backup server failing.
Use StorageCraft Cloud Backup for these scenarios:
- Protecting cloud-hosted data from accidental overwrites and deletion, sync issues, malicious deletes, and other problems
- Recovering data after virus infection and ransomware attacks
- Archiving or transferring ownership of data rather than maintaining user subscriptions when employees leave
- Accessing data when hosted services are down
- Supporting investigations and electronic discovery (e-Discovery) efforts
- Aiding in regulatory compliance by having archived data
- Adding value to your managed services without adding significant effort
StorageCraft Cloud Backup
Organizations understand that they need to protect their most important asset, their data. In today’s world data can be anywhere. It may reside in an organization’s physical server, in a virtual server in the cloud, or it can even reside in both at the same time. Critical data needs to be protected and available whether it’s hosted locally or in the cloud. Microsoft Office 365 provides significant advantages to organizations of all sizes, however, this SaaS version of Microsoft’s flagship productivity application, which stores files and data in the cloud, demands the same high level of data backup and recovery functions as its on premise version.
Since SaaS applications exist in the cloud many organizations and individuals believe that their valuable data is automatically protected and available. Cloud-based application vendors do provide a basic level of protection, but their backups are designed to meet their platform requirements and not those of end users. Customer data must be:
- Safe from the most common cause of data loss, user errors
- Recoverable from data loss due to system errors
- Available longer than a short 30-day window
- Protected against internal and external threats
- Available quickly when needed in the proper format
SaaS application users need to make sure that they have these additional levels of protection and accessibility in order to meet basic organizational needs.
To meet this critical need for cloud-based protection, StorageCraft Cloud Backup for Office 365 provides a flexible, easy-to-use solution for the protection, management and recovery of Office 365 data. It is protected, encrypted and made available through an intuitive, web-based interface. Users can quickly recover a file, a folder, or an entire backup quickly and easily in its original format.
StorageCraft Cloud Backup for Office 365 provides protection for:
All email activities and Exchange data going back as long as needed or prescribed
- Calendars and contacts
Data saved for multiple previous revisions, edits and versions
- OneDrive for Business
Everything that is needed from Office 365 processes is collected, encrypted, protected and readily available
Protection of base SharePoint organizational data
- Public shared folders
Availability of all data that is in use in public shared folders across user defined time periods
SaaS (software as a service) application vendors do provide some protection, yet any backups they take are to meet their needs, not those of a business. The truth is, cloud apps just aren’t built to provide full backup and disaster recovery capabilities.
Granular data, such as an email, document, or spreadsheet, can be lost forever if a user accidentally deletes, infects, or overwrites it. StorageCraft®Cloud Backup can provide peace of mind—because you can be certain your SaaS data is safe from any type of disaster.
If you’re a StorageCraft partner, set up all your client accounts in the same portal from which you manage your other StorageCraft offerings. Once configured, StorageCraft Cloud Backup automatically backs up hosted data to a geographically appropriate Amazon S3 data center (United States, Ireland, or Australia). Backups occur at regular intervals throughout the day, and reports and notifications inform you of success or issues.
You don’t need to manage anything else in this web-based application until a restore is needed, and that restore process is quick and painless. Recover past versions of documents, even versions from months ago, regardless of what has happened to them since. Retrieve contact lists, old emails, and other data. Restore deleted users. Advanced search enables you to easily find and restore specific items, and do so across all supported SaaS services for a given account.
