Evesham Partners with Thinking Safe for on-line Backup and Recovery Solution

Evesham Technology has partnered with the UK backup vendor Thinking Ssafe to supply its customers with a backup solution they say delivers immediate cost benefits, maximises data availability, increases staff productivity, reduces total cost of ownership and delivers an integrated disaster recovery solution.

Evesham will market two versions of the aptly named SmartStor – Smartstor SME and Smartstor Enterprise. These innovative solutions provide backup, recovery and archive facilities using 2 separate state of the art secure data-centres near Reading and London’s Docklands. Smartstor addresses today’s challenges such as securing mobile data, backing up the ever increasing quantities of data, reduced backup windows, rising tape costs, fast recovery of critical data and long term archiving.

“The new Smartstor solutions have been introduced to offer our customers enhanced protection of their valuable business data,” says Raj Patel, Storage Sales Manager at Evesham Technology. “Protecting data is important, for businesses of all sizes and industries and Smartstor will ensure that our customers benefit from a flexible, modular and cost effective solution. We deliver maximum data availability so that information or data loss caused by the theft of the MD’s laptop or a critical server failure creates minimum business impact or productivity disruption.”

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Evesham Technology,” comments Ed Jones, Director of Thinking Safe. “With the loss of back up tapes and therefore sensitive customer data in the headlines regularly, companies are looking for a software solution which brings together remote backup and recovery, snapshot copy, and the replication and synchronisation of backup data into a single platform. Within Evesham Technology we have a business partner that shares our passion for ensuring our clients’ data remains secure.”

The Smartstor solutions do not require a licence fee unlike alternative solutions. Instead, they work as a ‘pay as you grow’ scheme; the only cost is the amount of data stored. Notably, the more you store the lower the cost per gigabyte.
