Why you should consider Stage2Data’s as-a-service solutions

The benefits associated with the as-a-service model are well known. It assists IT teams and organizations to simplify, streamline and optimize including faster time to benefit with reduced total cost of ownership, scalability, speed of deployment, and significantly decreased risk. However, with so many solutions and new tech on the market, it can become increasingly difficult to understand what each solution can offer your business. Below we highlight why you should consider Stage2Data’s as-a-service solutions for your organization.

By partnering with market leaders in as-a-service solutions, Stage2Data, Canada’s premier cloud solution provider, revolutionized the as-a-service market offering backup, instant recovery, hosting, and file archiving in one secure framework across data centers and clouds in response to the continuous trend of migration to the cloud. The shift towards migrating to the cloud can bring substantial opportunities to data center vendors.

For example, it is estimated that spending on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) will reach USD 126 billion by 2020. IaaS, as a fully integrated, value-added service, is increasingly becoming the primary portal that IT staff use. It eliminates the 3-5-year hardware upgrade cycle with its related maintenance and capital costs and offers flexible expansion that can easily scale with your growth.

For most organizations, Backup- and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service are absolute essentials to maintain the health of their business operations.  DRaaS is gaining traction as a must have given its potential to ensure organizations maintain continuity, can effectively respond to disruptive events and instantly recover from downtime. In response, Stage2Data established a modern data management platform that unifies backup and offers flexibility and rapid and immediate recovery, replication, search, analytics, archival, compliance, and copy data management in one secure fabric across the data centre and public cloud.

Nevertheless, traditional disaster recovery/business continuity solutions offer full network recovery of the local area network. But unless they are also the client’s Internet Provider (ISP/carrier), they cannot offer full NRaaS. Since Stage2Data is also a certified Internet Service Provider (ISP/carrier) its clients’ IP addresses will remain constant should a complete network failure occur. It uses Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), a routing technique which directs data from one node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, thus avoiding complex  lookups in a routing table and speeding traffic flows.

With decades of collective experience in cloud backup, cloud storage and data management, Stage2Data was founded with one goal in mind: To protect, control and recover any organization’s data and applications. We currently offer cloud backup by Cohesity, cloud storage at 20 CAD/USD per TB, DRaaS at 25 USD through expert partner, Veeam and Networking – 1 GB MPLS link starting at 1500 CAD / 1130 US.
