Umbrellar has unveiled a new cloud solution designed to address ongoing business continuity challenges for organisations across New Zealand.

Under the banner of CloudConnect, the solution is powered by Veeam technology and offers a simplified and more cost effective way to back-up data from devices on all platforms.

Specifically, the offering provides an offsite, secure solution to protect customers desktops and devices, on-premise physical and virtual servers, or existing Veeam onsite back-up and replication deployments.

"Umbrellar customers are increasingly aware of the importance of having business continuity plans in place to protect their data from threats, natural disasters or malicious attacks like ransomware, which are occurring with greater frequency in New Zealand,” Umbrellar head of cloud David Howden said.

“With Umbrellar CloudConnect, businesses have a reliable strategy for their data assets.

“We can provide an inexpensive way to ensure the availability and continuity of data on local or cloud hosted servers, workstations and existing Veeam on premises installations.”

Operating as one of New Zealand’s largest web and cloud hosting organisations, Umbrellar is also one of the leading Veeam cloud and service provider partners across the country.

As reported by sister publication ARN, the business also took home the New Zealand Cloud Provider of the Year Award at the Veeam ProPartner Awards in February 2017.

“We are excited to expand our joint offering and provide New Zealand businesses peace of mind with CloudConnect,” Veeam senior director of global cloud group APJ Asanga Wanigatunga added.

“The release of CloudConnect is a sign of Umbrella’s continued evolution in the company’s commitment to its New Zealand customers.”

Established in 1997 and rebranded in 2015, Umbrellar also has data centres in Auckland, Christchurch and Sydney, backed up by a team of 90 specialists servicing more than 85,000 customers.

The partnership with Veeam comes less than a month after the vendor announced the availability of a free management console for service providers, with Umbrellar driving New Zealand adoption.

As reported by Reseller News, the offering - named Veeam Availability Console (VAC) - delivers back-up-as-a-service (BaaS) and disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) solutions, bolstered by improved management, tracking and invoice capabilities.
