    Sungard Availability Services Unveils Managed Backup – AWS for More Agile, Flexible and Scalable Backup on the Cloud

    September 16, 2020

    WAYNE, Pa.—November 27, 2018— Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) today announced Managed Backup – Amazon Web Services (AWS) for enterprises looking to protect and preserve their data in the cloud. Managed Backup – AWS is a fully managed, Service Level Agreement (SLA)-backed data protection service that allows companies to back up data from their on-premises environments to AWS, giving them a more agile backup solution while enhancing their business resilience.

    “Sungard AS’ Managed Backup – AWS solution is well-suited to address the needs of organisations looking to refresh or augment their in-house legacy backup solutions, as well as those just starting their journey to the cloud,” said Josh Crowe, Chief Technology Officer, Sungard AS. “This is yet another example of how Sungard AS is leveraging its status as an AWS Managed Service Provider Partner to provide our customers with resilient, recoverable IT solutions on AWS.”

    Managed Backup – AWS is ideal for organisations building a strategy to support them through their digital transformation, and aiming to modernise, optimise and cut the costs of legacy data protection facilities based on traditional physical infrastructure. In addition, it serves organisations that need to refresh their backup infrastructures while reducing CapEx investment through an OpEx model, as well as those who seek a fully managed data protection service backed by a 98 percent backup success rate SLA.

    Sungard AS is not only an AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partner, but earlier this month, it achieved AWS Storage Competency status. Sungard AS is also a leading provider for cloud-based managed recovery and production services on AWS, proving it has the tools and expertise to back up, recover and provide resiliency for an organisation’s data residing on AWS.

    “With the exponential growth of data, organisations today need to make strategic choices around data protection and the location of data spread across on-premises, hybrid and cloud environments,” said David Noy, vice president and general manager, Product Management and Alliances, Veritas. “Sungard AS, in collaboration with Veritas, has chosen Veritas data protection technology as the foundation of their new solution, built on AWS, to help customers bridge the complexities of hybrid architectures with their desire to safely migrate data to the cloud. As the worldwide leader in enterprise data protection and the software-defined storage market, Veritas is pleased to help advance Sungard AS’ solution that enables customers to protect their hybrid cloud data with a simple, reliable and highly cost-effective service."

    Sungard AS is a recognised leader in backup and recovery, with the AWS skills expected of an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Consulting Partner. Sungard AS provides end-to-end services from consulting to Managed Backup – AWS in production and recovery, to network and security.

    The announcement of Managed Backup – AWS is just one of many recent achievements for Sungard AS in its ongoing relationship with AWS. Sungard AS recently became a member of the AWS Solution Space Partner program, which features APN Partners that offer customer-ready solutions based on architectures validated by AWS.

    Sungard AS’ end-to-end hybrid IT services include cloud management for production and recovery, colocation, managed hosting and security consulting across a global footprint. Learn more about Sungard AS’ managed cloud and recovery services on AWS.
