Protect, Store and More! See What Sirius BaaS Can Do for You

backup as a service (Baas)Companies trying to manage their own backup and recovery face a host of challenges and complications that are often impossible to overcome. Data protection typically falls on administrators with full workloads and other responsibilities, leaving them with no time to assess their current environment and ensure they are correctly protecting workloads. As a result, companies frequently sacrifice planning for the future state of their data protection environment, and continue playing whack-a-mole with their data backup.

Multiple factors and backup intricacies have caused a trend of increasingly complex enterprise backup environments. Companies often outgrow their original backup system or procure multiple backup products when they experience a rapid rate of growth and expansion of manpower and data due to situations like mergers and acquisitions. This is exacerbated as industry standards and infrastructure grow and change, making it more difficult to keep systems streamlined, updated and maintained.
