New and improved BaaS offering integrates with AWS in the cloud to reduce complexity
San Antonio, TX – 9 October, 2018 – Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc. (Sirius), a leading national IT solutions integrator, together with Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global leader in backup, recovery, the cloud and data management across any hybrid environment, announce the launch of their enhanced Backup as a Service (BaaS) offering, which integrates with AWS to reduce data center complexity and help break down data silos to unlock the power of data.
Originally launched as an enterprise-class, hybrid cloud-capable backup and recovery as a service (BaaS) solution by Forsythe (a company acquired by Sirius in November 2017), Commvault and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) in March of 2016, BaaS allows clients to offload the burden of day-to-day backup and recovery responsibilities from in-house staff. The newly enhanced offering integrates into AWS to leverage the cloud to achieve more reliability and increase security, without the complexity and costs associated with buying the technology outright, or managing the associated systems and processes in-house.
“Integrating AWS into our BaaS solution allows us to run and accelerate our clients’ legacy environments to provide an even more stable and secure environment for their future state IT,” said Mike Conley, executive vice president, Managed and Cloud Services at Sirius. “In addition to helping clients break down their data silos, it also helps reduce complexity and future-proof their infrastructure investments by unlocking the power of their data, which helps cut costs and improve audit and regulatory compliance.”
“Sirius’ enhanced BaaS offering integrates AWS for more comprehensive data management that helps clients manage and use data across files, applications, databases, hypervisors and the cloud,” said Sabrinath Rao, senior director, Solutions Group, Service Providers at Commvault. “As a Commvault partner, Sirius provides the technical and operations knowledge that clients need for seamless integration into their systems for data to be moved, backed up and recovered in the most cost-effective manner—no matter where it lives.”
BaaS solutions offer many benefits for healthcare clients, in particular, who must remain compliant and cognizant of rising healthcare costs. The integration of AWS gives providers infallible access to patient information and data, and helps ensure regulatory compliance, so they can focus on improving patient care and outcomes. This week, Sirius Director of Healthcare Solutions, Ed Ricks will present “Reducing the Complexity of the Data Center to Unlock the Power of Your Data” during Commvault GO at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee. Ricks’ presentation will focus on the critical role BaaS solutions play for healthcare organizations by helping them manage their digital transformation and eliminate data silos, and the benefits of incorporating cloud into a data management strategy.
Sirius Managed Services—which provides the enhanced BaaS services—ranked No. 1 in what is widely viewed as the industry’s most comprehensive global survey of managed service providers (MSPs): Channel Futures’ MSP 501 2018 Edition. This marks the second year in a row that Sirius has been honored with the ranking survey’s top spot. Attendees of GO are invited to stop by Booth R3 during the conference to meet the experts, and learn more about Sirius’ BaaS offerings and other leading solutions and services.
