  • Phoenix eases the pain of managing data growth
  • Archive as a Service reduces primary storage costs and shrinks backup windows

Phoenix, a leading and trusted provider of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (DR) services has today launched Archive as a Service (AaaS), the UK’s first cloud-based active archive. Archive as a Service will provide organisations of all sizes, with a resilient and economical solution that will ease the stress on IT departments whilst ensuring data remains accessible to the business.

Chris Coulson, DRaaS Product Manager at Phoenix explains why the service has been developed:
“With data growing faster than many organisations can manage, our customers are finding it difficult to backup and recover in time to meet business expectations – especially when using the traditional, tape-based approach to recovery. We’re also finding that many of our existing DRaaS customers are exceeding their storage quotas for Cloud Backup & Recovery faster than they had anticipated.

This data growth is having a negative impact on storage, backup and the overall recovery time objective. Our Archive as a Service solution delivers significant improvements in these areas.”

On average, unstructured content makes up 80% of data and 80% of that data is inactive but cannot be deleted for practical, legal or compliance reasons. Only 2% of this data will ever need to be accessed again, but nobody knows which 2% that will be.  With Archive as a Service, Phoenix has recognised that this places significant pressure on IT departments and systems to store increasingly bigger data sets while still providing acceptable performance and rapid recovery times.

Mike Osborne, Managing Director of Business Continuity at Phoenix commented:
“The rate of data growth is outpacing cost reductions in primary storage. IT departments are having to continually request further investment in a storage solution that was typically designed to cater for three to five years of data growth.

Our customers need an alternative to what’s currently on the market; providing the level of availability and protection expected in an enterprise solution. Archive as a Service meets those needs and gives our customers the added benefits of integration with our existing, award-winning Phoenix DR as a Service capabilities.”

The new service is a unique blend of Scality, NTP and HP technologies, combined with the well-established Phoenix data protection infrastructure. This enables Phoenix to deliver cost savings and improvement on data management and recovery.

Taking advantage of Phoenix’s economies of scale and its decades  of IT industry experience, Archive as a Service enables business of all sizes to realise all the benefits of archive, without the significant capital expenditure normally associated with a solution if its type.
