Secure Important Business Data in StoneFly Storage in Azure Cloud

Business data requires adequate data security measures. Keeping all business backups in an on-premises backup infrastructure and in a single location isn’t a reliable data protection strategy. Creating offsite copies delivers redundancy and high availability which is necessary for business continuity.

With our parternships with Veeam and Microsoft Azure, and using our storage in Azure, enterprises, large organizations, SMBs and SMEs can effectively secure their mission-critical workloads. Our gateway technology and expertise put us in a unique position to offer a simplified package that combines everything in a way that makes life easier for system administrators, IT administrators, and business owners.

No need to setup complex backup systems. Let us make cloud backup and disaster recovery simple for your enterprise IT environments
