Small to Mid-Sized Businesses Can Utilize BUMI for Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud Backup Implementations
BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the availability of BUMI Here, There and Everywhere, three new data backup and recovery solutions designed to provide unmatched flexibility, scalability and security.
“BUMI Here, There and Everywhere give organizations the flexibility to create a comprehensive data backup and recovery strategy that suits their specific business needs,” said Jennifer Walzer, CEO of BUMI. “Whether clients want to maintain their backups within their own infrastructure or replicate to one or both of our data centers, we now have the capability to provide a best-in-class data protection and disaster recovery solution that fits their needs.”
BUMI Here, There, and Everywhere solutions provide the capability to backup, protect and restore business-critical data, all backed by BUMI’s world-class engineering and support team.
BUMI Here includes software to create a private cloud for backup and recovery. It leverages existing IT infrastructure and provides complete control over backups and where they are stored. This solution is designed for organizations that need to keep backups in-house and have an additional site for replication. BUMI Here includes setup, software, hardware, remote monitoring and support.
“BUMI Here allows us to retain control of our backups and where they are stored. We also have the peace of mind in knowing BUMI is proactively monitoring the backups on a daily basis and that their team is available to address any issues that may occur,” said Kevin Lewis, VP of Technology at The Morét Group, an apparel design, sourcing and marketing company.
BUMI software is installed on a dedicated server on The Morét Group’s network and connects to a NAS device provided by BUMI. When a scheduled data backup begins, data is transferred within The Morét Group’s own network to the server installed with the BUMI client software. After data reaches this server it is analyzed for any data blocks that have changed or are new since the last backup. Those data blocks are compressed and encrypted using military-grade encryption. The data is then transmitted over The Morét Group’s local network to the BUMI system server and stored in a compressed and encrypted format on the BUMI-provided NAS. After the local backup is finished, the encrypted data is then replicated to one of The Morét Group’s secondary off‑site locations that also runs the BUMI system software.
BUMI There is a cloud backup and recovery solution leveraging BUMI’s data centers. It requires no onsite equipment, enabling organizations to completely off-load their backup operations to BUMI.
“We needed the capability to back up our data off-site to provide an added level of data protection,” said Jeff Miller, Chief Technology Officer at Serengeti Asset Management, an investment firm based in New York City. “BUMI There is transparent to our business and allows my team to focus on other key initiatives.”
BUMI Everywhere is a hybrid cloud backup solution that combines in-house data protection with off-site replication, setup, remote monitoring and support. This solution is ideal for organizations with large amounts of data who are looking for an onsite backup solution but also wish to replicate to an off-site third-party facility.
“Our operation utilizes BUMI Everywhere to ensure data backup and recovery,” said Chris Bartlett, IT Manager at Premier Utility Services. “The hybrid approach delivers the flexibility to manage backups on-site with the added layer of protection of the BUMI cloud.”
