Unplanned IT system loss can occur at any time through human error,
hardware fault, malicious act or site disaster.
The ramifications are likely
to be dramatic or even catastrophic on a company’s ability to trade and
operate. Many businesses are required to implement business continuity
plans to comply with insurance requirements, while others do it for
good governance and to protect their investment.
Business continuity solutions provide the ability to protect both business servers and
applications, as well as data on employees’ desktops and laptops. All data is stored in a
secure remote 360 Cloud Platform to protect against site failure or loss. Options are
available for different protection levels, depending on the criticality of the server,
application or data.
Solutions that are built and delivered using infrastructure supplied through the
soVision 360 Cloud Platform benefit from the following:
- UK locality of data. The soVision data centres are located in Gloucester, England.
- Flexible payment options. Choose to pay as you go, pay monthly or pay upfront,
all with associated levels of discount. Pay as your business grows by adding more
users only when needed.
Complete Business Solutions
Businesses are able to choose business continuity solutions through software-as-a-service (SaaS) or from a
dedicated infrastructure-as-a-service platform (IaaS), with the most suitable system depending on the size,
operations, and type of business.
Complete business protection
For a complete business continuity solution, a combination of the soVision SaaS and IaaS solutions can be implemented, with high availability
and advanced backup protection on operational systems, and SaaS online backup protecting employees’ desktops and laptops.
This suite of business continuity services means that all data within a business can be securely backed up at an affordable price.
Online backup services from soVision are perfect for protecting
data on employees’ desktops or laptops, providing a low cost,
fully automated, secure backup and restoration platform that
can be implemented very quickly. Once set up, the users do not
have to configure or run the program at all. It can easily be
scheduled to run automatically in the background, backing up
key business data.
A fully featured backup and restoration client
works with market leader Vembu to provide an easy-to-use,
automated backup client that can be installed on any Windows
computer or server to safeguard files.
Flexible cloud storage
All files are stored within the
soVision 360 Cloud Platform, providing flexible and scalable
storage so that costs are minimised as you only pay for the
storage your business needs.
All files are encrypted prior to upload and are
securely stored within the soVision 360 Cloud Platform.
Files can be restored on an individual
basis or for an entire machine, and backups can be
scheduled to automatically ensure that the latest file
versions are protected, providing full flexibility to your
business recovery solution.
Value for money
Cloud solutions delivered from multitenant
and shared platforms are generally more cost
effective as the overheads of the solution can be shared by
many users, without sacrificing security.
SaaS solutions are simple to set up and use as
the platform has already been built and configured.
Taking advantage of dedicated resources within the soVision
platform means that more custom business continuity solutions
can be created for your business, providing faster restoration
times with high availability solutions and advanced backup
services. These services are ideal for operational servers and
business-critical systems that need fast recovery times,
minimising the impact of any service interruption.
High availability services:
All server activity is mirrored to
a secure, hosted server within the soVision 360 Cloud
Platform, providing a fast recovery solution. An issue or
incident with an on-premises server can be rectified by
swapping to the hosted high availability server, typically
within 60 minutes.
For non-critical operational servers,
soVision provides a backup solution with failover to hosted
servers. This advanced backup service has live servers
running with the latest data from 4 hours ago, providing a
smooth and low-impact recovery to normal business
Direct integration with your on-premises IT:
on-premises network can be extended to connect to your
hosted solution, providing a seamless experience for users
whether within the office or at home. When they log onto
their work machine they automatically have access to the
hosted solution just as they would if it were on-premises
(using a single sign on).
A solution that is built on
infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) operates on dedicated,
segregated and isolated infrastructure for your business,
just as it would if you had the servers on-premises.
soVision infrastructure includes resiliency across all
components (connectivity, power, compute, storage), and
a 99.99% service-level agreement.
soVision infrastructure is hosted in a physically,
operationally and technically secure environment.
soVision applies strict role based access to your data in
line with ITIL best practice.
Supports any type of application:
Because your application
is running on dedicated infrastructure, you can run any
type of application or software, making it compatible with
your existing IT network, and enabling full configuration.
Software that requires any custom customisation
or integration with other applications can be
configured as needed.
