How your business can benefit from Bell Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery
Trust simple, automated data protection in the cloud
Protect your hosted or on-premises workloads, data and applications by automating replication and recovery based on policies you set and control.
Faster and more flexible recovery
Faster data recovery means less downtime, better recovery time objectives (RTOs) and more flexibility for your recovery point objectives (RPOs). With Bell, you can specify retention periods and prioritize the recovery of specific servers, files or applications based on your business needs.
Get enhanced security and reliability for peace of mind
Bell lets you store up to three copies of your data in a primary data centre and another three in a remote secondary location. Copies are encrypted in transit and at rest, sent over a secure private connection to maintain privacy and meet compliance requirements.
Controlled, predictable costs
Data protection in the cloud helps you reduce capital and operating expenses, especially compared to traditional tape or optical media. You pay only for the actual volume of data you back up on a monthly basis.
Key capabilities of Bell Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery
Built-in compression, encryption and data transfer throttling help increase your IT efficiency.
You can replicate your on-premises physical servers and virtual machines to a Microsoft Azure data centre or a secondary data centre.
You can create a disaster recovery plan and run recovery tests without affecting the productivity of your live environment.
