Dimension Data’s Managed Storage and Managed Backup Services
Today, constant availability and security of your information assets is a business imperative … and 24 x 7 operations and monitoring is a key requirement. However, maintaining continuous high availability and operational efficiency requires specialised skills, coupled with broad experience in process management. While the business benefits of storage consolidation projects may be patent, the management of these infrastructures gets more complex as your business grows. Critical to achieving return on investment goals for a consolidated storage infrastructure is ensuring that the infrastructure operates efficiently throughout its life, not only when first commissioned.
The key is to rely on a partner to help you achieve an appropriate return on investment on your consolidated storage infrastructure – a service provider that ensures high availability.
Dimension Data’s Managed Services for Storage provides you with the confidence that your most valuable asset, information, is always accessible and secure. We remove the burden of highly complex change and configuration management and at the same time, avoid the costs of developing skills within your own IT department.
Data backups, which have never received the level of focus to match the changing requirements associated with compliance and risk, are all too often the subject of audit reports. Do you regularly have failed backups? Do you understand why backups fail? When does backup failure notification take place? What about remote locations? Is the business’ need for more backup impacting your IT budget? Do you struggle to keep IT staff focused on the mundane task of backup?
Dimension Data’s Managed Services for Backup reduces the risk of information loss and outages by increasing backup and restore success rates. The service, through a monitoring system, focuses on the successful backup of data as defined by the backup policy and will report on any deviations which can then receive necessary focus to ensure compliance. In this way, we give you peace of mind by enhancing management visibility into service level adherence while reducing the burden of 24 x 7 operations on internal IT staff.
