A couple of weeks ago, our Google Alert service caught this link: http://www.publictenders.net/node/1840121 (page is copied and pasted below) that announced an award given by the BBC to Backup-Technology for “offsite data backup solution”.
We were hoping to see a press release on this award, but it looks like that there is not an official press release. We contacted Backup Technology for a comment immediately after we saw the Google Alert, but they have been unable to give any comment. We understand that Backup Technology are under contractual agreement not to discuss this award.
We believe that this contract is a very significant achievement for Backup Technology in terms of revenues and trust; and the whole online data backup industry would benefit due to this endorsement by BBC.
The contract awarded covers online, offsite data backup across all of “BBC’s sites in the UK” following a competitive procurement process. In the above award announcement, the value of the contract is not specified. However, up on digging further, we found the original BBC tender document and based on this tender, the value of the contract is up to £2,000,000 Pounds and will be for a term of 3 years.
Backup-Technology is an online backup and disaster recovery company, powered by Asigra and is headquartered in Leeds, UK, with a US base in Texas. Backup-Technology has been our top ranked company in our monthly ranking since 2009.
We congratulate Backup-Technology on this great achievement.
