Pay as you go online backup service for smaller businesses

Vaulten : 24 July, 2009  (New Product)
Vaulten is offering a security-as-a-service online backup solution which is aimed at smaller businesses
In the current economic climate, every small to medium sized business (SMB) is looking for ways to reduce IT costs without compromising business security. Backing up business critical data securely to an offsite location has become more of a mandatory compliance need rather than a nice-to-have feature. Restoring data as and when required in case of any unforeseen disaster, is crucial for business continuity.

Typical backup solutions on the market today are based on smaller, lesser known providers, or very high-end costlier disaster recovery solutions ideally suitable for companies with big budgets e.g. Corporates & Banks. Users can't always be sure of the future of smaller players or may not be willing to invest heavily in infrastructure costs to implement full-scale solutions.

Vaulten, powered by IBM, specifically address these gaps in the market by providing a secure online automatic backup service to end-users on a SaaS based model.

On its launch in UK and EU, Mac Karlekar, Managing Director at Vaulten says "We are proud to have IBM, the world's leading IT company, at all fronts; the software, hardware and services, with which we are now able to provide Enterprise Level Security to SMBs based on proven world-class IBM technologies (IBM Tivoli, CDP and IBM managed Data Centres). We feel, Vaulten will help SMBs to reduce considerable IT management costs but still provide peace of mind that their data is secure and encrypted, ready to be restored on-demand anytime and anywhere."

Since the solution itself is powered by IBM, trust factor, security and reliability comes by default with the IBM brand name. Even in the current economic climate, you can count on IBM to be a market leader next year, and maybe 10-20 years from now.

Vaulten Online Backup offers the same technology and level of security that is normally implemented by Banks and comes with user-friendly interface at affordable pricing options.

Key Differentiators of Vaulten:

1. Peace of mind - Secure as IBM: Powered by IBM Technology (Blade servers, CDP, Tivoli), Your files are stored encrypted that can be only accessed with your private credentials.
2. Pay-As-You Go Model: Every user has different need of secure storage requirement. Keeping this basic principle in mind, our packages allow users to pay only for what they need.
3. User friendly interface: We have kept the interface as simple as possible for end-users with near zero intervention once the setup is complete.
4. IBM Data Disaster Recovery Protection: Managed in highly secure redundant IBM data centres, your data is as secure as any banks data which uses IBM infrastructure for disaster recovery.
5. Reduce Compliance Risks (Onsite or Offsite): Flexible options depending on client needs, entire setup can be replicate onsite-offsite.
6. Hands-off & Automatic: Once installed Vaulten will automatically keep working in the background backing your files.
7. On-demand Recovery: You can recover multiple versions of your files anytime on any machine you want without any dependency on additional resources.
8. Less resource hungry: Using well-proven CDP technology, there is no adverse performance impact to your system. Vaulten has been tested heavily in our labs & we are proud of its performance as compared with other competitors.
9. Store Backups in the World's Most Secure Data Centres: Managed by IBM professionals, your data is extremely secure in IBM managed data centres.
10. No Infrastructure Complexity: As long as you have a internet connection, you do not need to invest in any other costlier infrastructure.

We do not consider ourselves to compete with other online storage providers who provide free or cheap storage. Our solution is targeted ideally at SMB sector who may not necessary want to invest in costly infrastructure but ideally will still like same level of security and encryption as used by banks to transmit highly confidential information. We believe, Vaulten has harnessed the power of IBM to have a very unique advantage over other providers.

The service is also highly flexible when it comes to prices. As a launch offer, starting at a minimal £5.99 for 3GB storage per month running up to Terrabytes, Vaulten also offers customised solutions specific to client needs.
