IDC, from a very recent report, had shared an analysis, which indicates that owing to the worldwide data explosion, businesses will create 175 zettabytes per year in 2025 -- which is a 10-fold increase in less than a decade.
This explosion in data means that the existence of increasingly more sophisticated hackers will be inevitable, realizing that it’s more critical and sensible than ever to invest in Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS).
DPaaS as any cloud-based or online-delivered service is usually designed to protect the specific data of any organization.
And to exploit DPaaS for the benefit of its clients, Chennai-headquartered Sify Technologies Limited has partnered with Commvault to enable Sify to manage cross-platform backup and recovery operations across data centers with a scaled down team and thereby lower the service delivery cost up to 30%.
Sify provides a range of cloud services across platforms, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, etc. through its 10 data centers.
Additionally, Sify now intends to provide Data Protection as a Service, by adopting Commvault’s ‘Backup & Recovery’ solution as a unified data protection system for multiple platforms.
With this partnership, Sify says it can ensure long-term data retention, quick data replication, cross platform backup migration, superior deduplication with a single tool/platform.
It is believed that with Commvault’s in-built interface, Sify’s customers can easily manage cross-platform backup migrations via one console.
Commvault says that with the superior deduplication feature, enterprises can compress data and reduce their storage size significantly in data center without any third-party solutions.
Commenting on the partnership, Kamal Nath, CEO, Sify Technologies, said, “The current situation has triggered the need for secure and agile IT infrastructure for enterprises. Customer Data security is a top priority for us at Sify and with Commvault, we now have a competitive edge to provide data protection across platforms. With this partnership we aim to provide enterprises a one stop solution with end-to-end IT support translating to minimum disruption.”
Ravi Maguluri, CTO, Cloud services, Sify Technologies, said, “Commvault’s reputation in the field of Data security and their experience of having worked across divergent landscapes and verticals was the driver in the decision making for a partner. This partnership aims to substantially lower the service delivery cost while raising the benchmark on Data protection.”
