Backup as a Service (BaaS) for GovDC

System failures, natural disasters, theft, accidental file deletions, human errors in tape management... While none of these threats are predictable, the protection can be.

Meridian IT Backup as a Service (BaaS) is a resilient, cloud-based backup and recovery service that provides peace of mind from knowing that your critical data is backed up securely and your business is protected against an unexpected data loss. All data backups can be quickly validated to ensure the data is being backed up properly and meets data protection regulations.

​For companies using a tape system, Backup as a Service offers significant advantages. This service can eliminate the hassle of managing tapes, the stress over unvalidated backups, and the risks of human error that stems from so many people being involved in the laborious process. Even if your business utilises the Cloud, Meridian IT can help you evaluate current costs and efficiencies to ensure the backup system meets data protection regulations, as well as the needs of your business.

Meridian IT BaaS offers a number of benefits to our clients:

Secured data. Gain the highest levels of protection with bank-grade encryption and world-class data centers.

Cost savings. Save the cost of using a tape backup – from the cost of tape drives and media, to storage and labour.

Optimised storage footprint. Online backup offers compression and data de-duplication that takes place at the front and end of the solution, reducing bandwidth consumption and footprint.

Greater flexibility. Service can be scaled as your data needs change, reducing your capital expenditure.

Storage as a Service for GovDC

A secure and flexible platform to store, manage and protect your data

As the NSW State Government takes a new approach of making ICT readily available, all agencies are required to move to GovDC cloud or public cloud.

To simplify this transition, the Meridian IT Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering is an enterprise class service that allows any public body* defined by the NSW Government to store their data securely within GovDC.

STaaS is available through Meridian IT via a flexible subscription model to meet your data management requirements:

Advanced add-on features allow you to leverage Meridian IT’s STaaS to generate even greater value for your organization:

With STaaS, extend your data environment into GovDC’s Managed Services Backbone (MSB) or Cloud Connect feature.

In this way, you can take advantage of Meridian IT’s advanced data managed capabilities and leverage cloud scale compute resources at the same time.

Stay compliant and in control.

Data is stored in a secure multi-tenanted environment within GovDC keeping it in your ownership and control. All data also resides within the borders of NSW to ensure compliance with data sovereignty policies as outlined by the NSW Government.​

Predictable costs.

Avoid bill shock through a predictable cost model defined by a STaaS subscription which defines purchased tier, term, capacity, and extra services selections. That way, you know what you can expect to pay month to month for your data management needs.

Flexibility like no other.

Unlike many cloud providers, there is no cost to add or remove data to your Storage-as-a-Service subscription. You can also choose to move from one Storage Tier to another without a change fee. With STaaS, you are not locked into a particular platform, so you can accommodate any data requirements from short-term projects through to entire platform upgrades or longer term archive at any time.
