Enterprise-grade HGC Cloud Backup service enriches HGC’s growing cloud portfolio

HONG KONG – 7 July 2016 — / — Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC), the fixed-line division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH; stock code: 215), today announced launch of the one-stop enterprise-grade Cloud Backup service. This Backup-as-a-Service offering enables enterprises to backup files, operating systems and enterprise applications securely, flexibly and cost-effectively

Pay-as-you-go daily charge model facilitates efficient use of resources
HGC Cloud Backup service supports a wide range of brands and generations of operating systems, applications and cloud platforms. Enterprises are able to back up huge volumes of data from dispersed offices on or off site in order to free up IT staff to focus on strategic issues. Just like other cloud solutions from HGC, Cloud Backup offers significant flexibility – this time by virtue of a pay-as-you-go daily charge model. Such an approach satisfies the needs of enterprises large and small by facilitating efficient use of resources.

This new offering comes complete with an easy-to-use online self-service portal and enables massive volumes of data to be compressed, while eliminating duplicate blocks to reduce backup time and storage space needed. Customers benefit significantly from a boost to operating efficiency because they can retrieve and restore specific data whenever necessary – without the need to recover the entire contents of a backup.

Dual data centre backup and replication solution planned
Scheduled for launch later this year, HGC’s Cloud Backup Service will be enhanced by addition of data backup replication. This will enable high-end enterprises to maximise availability of data by backing up critical information at both the world-class Wong Chuk Hang and Kwai Chung data centres.

HTHKH Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Tan said: “Launch of HGC Cloud Backup greatly enriches our portfolio of cloud services. This new Backup-as-a-Service capability – plus the planned dual data centre backup and replication solution – will minimise the worrying risks associated with data storage. Customers will therefore be in a much better position to protect their digital assets and recover critical information during disaster incidents, thereby ensuring robust business continuity.”

World-class data centres offer safe and reliable backup environment
Backed-up data is carried by HGC’s fast and stable network and stored at HGCGC data centres designed according to the TIA942 tier-3 standard. Alternatively, enterprises can opt for a private leased line for even tighter cloud security. HGCGC’s facilities are accredited with ISO 27001 information security management certification and benefit from 24/7 monitoring by HGC’s Network Operations Centre in order to meet the stringent mission-critical demands of myriad industries.
