Backup as a Service

Blue Connections BlueSky “Cloud Backup” solution provides “Backup as a Service” (BaaS) capabilities for our clients, solely owned, and managed by Blue Connections with a focus to provide high availability, and performance, with simple pricing and predictable billing.

Blue Connections BaaS offering is built on Veeam Cloud Connect Software hosted in NextDC Melbourne, Australia.

Not all of our clients have the luxury of a secondary site to host off-site backups, or the time and resources to manage tape backups. Blue Connections BaaS offering allows our clients to have offsite backup capabilities, allowing them to comply with Veeam’s 3-2-1™ Best Practises. ( 3 copies of data, 2 different media, 1 copy offsite)

The following core features and function are provided:

  • Veeam “Backup as a Service”

    • Veeam Cloud Connect Service Provider
    • Simple configuration; add Blue Connections to Veeam and create new job to copy your backups off-site
  • Dedicated Storage for Simplified Billing

    • Charged by Disk
  • Dedicated Veeam Management Portals

    • Veeam Enterprise Manager portal
  • Dedicated fixed WAN Bandwidth

    • Sized to your requirements

How does it work?

Our BlueSky BaaS platform is provisioned within our Veeam Cloud Connect installation. You request allocated capacity resources to be made available for you, based off your sizing requirements. We will provide you with the details to add into your on-premises Veeam Backup & Replication environment, then create a new Backup Copy job to send your backups off-site. Management of the jobs, retention, restoration is all available from within your Veeam console. If you need more capacity as you grow, then a simple change is done at our end and additional capacity is immediately available for you.

What is the Pricing Model?

A consistent and simple pricing model was the driving force for our service offering, static resources are assigned to within our Veeam environment. Monthly Service charges remain consistence and simple to understand, based on the following resource elements:

  • Disk in TB
  • WAN Bandwidth
