BUMI Continues on Growth Track and Marks Ten Years of Providing Premium Online Backup and Recovery Solutions to Professional Services Firms
New York, NY – May 1, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, is celebrating ten years in business – a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to providing best-in-class technology and world-class customer service to its clients and partners. Based on a decade of industry expertise and first-hand experience responding to customers’ needs, BUMI is well-poised to address the critical challenges IT professionals face in regards to data protection, including rapid data growth, increasingly complex technology infrastructures, disaster recovery and business continuity, and regulatory compliance.
Founded by CEO Jennifer Walzer, the company started out providing a simple online backup solution to small businesses that needed a better way to protect their corporate data. “It all began with a phone call from a past business colleague who suffered a major system crash and lost almost all of his data. It took me about 15 minutes to realize what an incredible opportunity this was.” At the time, hard drives were getting bigger and storage was getting cheaper, meaning that businesses generally had a lot more data concentrated in one place than they used to. Additionally, Internet connections were getting faster and more secure, and in a post-9/11 world, businesses had started thinking seriously about the need for disaster preparedness.
Fast forward ten years, and BUMI’s service offering has expanded to include an entire suite of on-site and off-site data continuity solutions, including BCR (BUMI Cloud Recovery), VDR (Virtual Disaster Recovery) capabilities, and cloud-to-cloud data protection for Software-as-a-Service platforms like Salesforce.com. Today the focus has shifted from simply backing up files to data recovery and the speed at which a company can get restored after a disaster. Walzer added, “This may seem surprising, but data backup and recovery is NOT just about the technology. While the technology running in the background is important, it’s our obsessive customer service that makes all the difference. At the end of the day, it’s about taking care of people and making sure that when disaster strikes they have a team in their corner who truly understands their data protection needs and are able to get them back up and running as quickly and as painlessly as possible.”
“ESG continually sees ‘Improving Data Backup and Recovery’ and ‘Improve BC/DR’ as top-ten IT spending priorities, often with the cloud perceived as a silver-bullet for those struggling to achieve data protection,” says Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “Today, as more providers are feverishly trying to figure out their cloud-backup story, those already in market have two ways to differentiate themselves: either continually dropping price (and the service quality it pays for), or fast forwarding past delivering ‘just’ backup to BC/DR with exemplary service. In its early days, BUMI chose the latter and it has served them well – as the market is now catching up to the vision that Jennifer and crew had back then. SMBs arguably need DR as much or more than enterprises, due to their dependence on its data and lack of expertise. BUMI’s service-driven approach and its underlying technologies seem to be a near perfect fit for SMBs that need better backup and DR, but can’t, won’t or shouldn’t do it themselves.”
BUMI is a profitable, debt-free privately owned business with an impressive roster of clients such as Protravel International, CitiStorage, and BPD Bank.
