Simple, Secure Backup-as-a-Service Now Available Through SingleHop Private Cloud and Veeam Cloud Connect

Partnership Enables SingleHop to Extend Industry-Best Backup Solution, Making Cloud Backup Accessible to More Than 100,000 Companies Worldwide Using Veeam

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand hosted private clouds and managed hosting, today introduced storage-agnostic backup-as-a-service (BaaS) capabilities through Veeam Cloud Connect©, enabling enterprises to efficiently backup data to the cloud. Veeam Availability Suite v8 users can immediately take advantage of SingleHop BaaS with no additional hardware, software, or upfront costs and without the cost and complexity of managing an offsite infrastructure. SingleHop is among a small handful of companies to offer Veeam-powered backup to extend customer data protection outside of the data center.

Cloud-based backup has emerged as the choice alternative or complementary method to tape, disk, on-premise, and 3rd party co-location scenarios because of the reduced risk, lower costs and improved business continuity the cloud model delivers. With Cloud Connect, SingleHop provides an efficient, simple conduit to industry-leading data protection through an off-site repository accessible right from the Veeam console. The solution supports both VMware and Hyper-V platforms and is designed to be fully operational within minutes.

SingleHop cloud backup recovery is scalable, transparent and instant. So, in the event that a business experiences an application error, security issue, server failure or the like, SingleHop BaaS restores systems quickly and efficiently to maintain a high-degree of operational quality.

With BaaS, companies are able to outsource critical tasks and meet long-term retention requirements without the need to assess storage requirements, purchase and maintain equipment, or get bogged down in infrastructure management. All SingleHop services offered to customers directly or through the channel are backed by one of the strongest SLAs in the industry and a unique Partner Bill of Rights.

"Being part of Veeam Cloud Connect supports SingleHop's best-of-breed partnership approach while enabling us to extend secure, easy-to-use, low-cost, off-premise, storage-agnostic backup solutions to a broad audience," said Jordan Jacobs, VP of products, "This BaaS solution allows companies to add a powerful level of assurance without the need to use new software or alter existing processes."
