The new service, Backup as a Service, ensures continuous work of the IT-infrastructure, making it possible to back up corporate systems, databases, and applications in the providers’ cloud. This service will be demanded by companies that work with large amounts of data on a daily basis and that value high accessibility of information systems. The list of these companies includes retailers, banking sector, insurance companies, and producers of goods.
Thanks to data compression, the service is 30% faster when it comes to copying compared to traditional solutions. The costs of storing data also go down by over a third as companies need less space with the cloud IT-resources compared to the in-house solutions. Moreover, the new service allows you to run mass updates of client systems up to 20 times faster due to the centralized distribution of updates from the providers’ cloud.
“We already have dozens of cloud services that make working easier. With the launch of this particular one, we expand the MTS Cloud backup service product line. This service will ensure the stable functioning of companies’ IT-systems while minimizing the risk of data loss. It will help avoid unexpected situations and delays as well as lower the influence of the human factor. I strongly believe that this offer will be highly demanded as right now its cost is one of the lowest on the market”, says Oleg Motovilov, the head of MTS Cloud.
“Russian business is actively migrating to cloud services: the market grows by 25-30% every year, and the trend keeps rising. We are interested in expanding our cloud service expertise and new technologies in data storage and security on the Russian market. We are happy to work with MTS Cloud which is highly trusted by hundreds of companies across the country. With the help of the cloud-based model and our technologies, domestic businesses can protect themselves from data losses while saving money”, Elena Bocherova, CEO of Akronis-Infoprotect.
The service automatically reacts to emerging cyber threats on user devices or servers. When needed, you can rapidly restore data from the cloud, avoiding shutdowns or freezing of your work. Data security is provided by the MTS fault-tolerant infrastructure, protected channels, and communication protocols. There is also a possibility for users to encrypt their data in backup copies.
The service is available in MTS Cloud cloud in a form of subscription. The cost depends on the amount of transferred data and a type of object for which backing up is done. For example, the cost of data copying for one virtual machine would be 400 rubles/monthly. Package offers are also available and consist of packs with fixed numbers of backup copies and volume of storage space. You save around 45% compared to the average offers of the market.
