LiveBackup, Australia’s preeminent backup and restore service provider, announced it had reached 150 terabytes of protected customer data in less than 2 years since establishing the service. Adding over five terabytes of protected data each month has earned it a position among leading online backup service providers in the country.
“We are delighted to be witnessing a staggering increase in number of customers and volumes of data we are backing up. The acceptance of cloud based backup services signals a shift in the way businesses are protecting their data and trends closely with more traditional cloud-‐based IT services”, said Peter Thompson, managing director of LiveBackup.
In the past year alone, through its partner network, LiveBackup has secured contracts with significant organisations, including Harley-‐Davidson, Hitachi Australia, ghd Hair and the City of Rockingham. LiveBackup’s service can protect data sets of various sizes, from 50 gigabytes to in excess of 10 terabytes. Furthermore, LiveBackup’s reseller channel has grown substantially, now supporting over 40 partners throughout Australia.
Upon request from resellers and customers, data restores occur on a daily basis and LiveBackup is proud to claim zero loss of customer data, 100% uptime and uninterrupted connectivity with remote data centres where the data is replicated, ensuring the highest levels of data integrity.
“When protecting organisation’s data, to become an authority in the online backup market, you must demonstrate a high level of trust and deliver a quality service. Having achieved that status, we are very proud of this achievement and very excited about what the future holds for LiveBackup”, concluded Thompson.
