BaaS (Backup as a Service)

In the event of problems or calamities within your business, you want to make sure that your data is not lost, so that you can start up again with the most current files without delay. Backup as a Service (BaaS) from Fundaments not only ensures that data isn’t lost, but gives you complete control (online) over your own backup and restoration process.

Take control over your backup process

Maximum control

Reliable backups and fast restores are indispensable for the continuity of your organisation. At the same time you  want to decide for yourself how many copies or backups you make of which systems and where you store them. And if something goes wrong unexpectedly, it’s important that you’re quickly back online without the intervention of third parties.

To use Backup as a Service, you need a virtual environment within the Fundaments vCloud Director environment. The virtual machines can then be backed up. This gives you maximum control over your backup and restoration process. All this without sacrificing the reliability of the environment.

Automatic, affordable and scalable

The Backup as a Service Department from Fundaments uses the innovative technology from Cohesity. This backup service provider ensures that you can automatically store all backups, affordable and scalable. You retain control over the entire process. Via a self-service portal you determine your backup policy yourself and you monitor the entire backup process. You manage the restore yourself from the online self-service portal. That way your organisation never stalls.

Self-service portal

Many companies use the 3-2-1 backup rule to ensure that there’s always a back-up to fall back on. Yet within your organisation youwant to decide for yourself which files or virtual servers you want to store. With Backup as a Service you create the policy that fits your business activities. Once tuned, the backup is fully automated via wizards. You can see exactly what’s happening via the portal. With a restore, the extensive search function helps you to quickly restore the correct backups. This way you always have control over your own backup process.

Simple payment model

The payment model of Backup as a Service is very simple and transparent. You pay monthly for the storage you purchase. So no complex licensing structure per virtual machine or amount of storage, but pay-per-use. In this way you are assured of enormous flexibility and scalability at transparent costs. And you don’t have to worry about maintenance. By using smart technologies for compression and deduplication, the storage of your backups is organised as efficiently as possible.

Want a copy to fall back on?
A leap forward
“By using Fundaments’ platform and expertise we have made a leap forward as a company in professionalising our part of the chain.’’
Jeroen Mahler

Jeroen Mahler
Managing Director of CoBrowser
Modern smart firewall
"We were looking for a solution that would help defend us against every possible vector attack. We really needed a modern, smart firewall and with the Fundaments Next Generation Redundant Firewall offer, based on Fortinet technology, we have got exactly what we wanted. It was a logical choice for us.”

Engineer at Kempen Automatisering
Trusting a partner
"Sometimes specific knowledge is imperative and it isn’t always profitable to acquire this in-house. It’s great to be able to trust a partner who takes that worry away, who’s familiar with the subject and doesn’t immediately send an invoice for every little thing. This partner will have an ongoing conversation with you: what is it you need, how can we tackle this and find a solution? That’s what Fundaments does."
Richard Hagen of the Rolf group
Multiple physical locations
"If the customer wants to have their data stored in several physical locations in view of DR, this is possible. But whether it’s a customised option or well-planned standard options, the customer doesn’t have to worry about a thing. That’s the beauty of the new ways of BU and DR"
Michel Erkens and Alexander van Bruchem of Onguard
Good solution with less costs
“When you look at the connectivity costs, meaning the private connections, as a part of migrating to the cloud, where you no longer need your own hardware or maintenance, your insurance policy is reduced, the company’s energy expenditure goes down and other expenses become smaller, you will see that this is really a good solution.”
Jeroen Bruggeman
Enterprise Administrator at CNS-IT
Security is no.1
At Cobrowser they’ve noticed a huge difference in how companies deal with security. “There are companies who consider this not so important. It’s essential to us to find a partner who takes security seriously. That’s why we’ve chosen Fundaments. Security is a very natural element of our collaboration.”
Frank Leegstra
Director and security officer of CoBrowser
Time saving and significantly reduced down time
“We can now reduce the actual down time with a migration to minutes instead of hours. This means many advantages for our customers and that’s the most important thing. In addition, it saves time for our engineers.”
