For those of you old enough to remember Myspace, it may surprise you to learn that this Los Angeles-based social networking company, which was once the consummate music-sharing platform, recently lost 12 years’ worth of music uploaded to its site following a server migration error. This resulted in a potential loss of 50 million songs, with Myspace representatives announcing that content uploaded to its site from 2003 to 2015 may no longer be accessible.

Where are we going with this?

Myspace is 100-percent cloud-based, allowing people to upload files to the platform and then share them with the world, seemingly without thinking twice about doing so. In losing some 50,000,000 files or so, Myspace has put a spotlight on the importance of backup in the cloud, and while why or how these files weren’t recoverable from some other offline backup in the cloud will never be known, here’s the point: It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about missing data from Office 365, Azure, AWS or Google Cloud – someone, somewhere will eventually make a mistake.

That’s where our focus on the importance of backup in the cloud comes into play. DMS iTech, in leading the charge against protecting vital data, offers products including Veeam’s Office 365 Backup and CloudAlly, both of which represent perfect fits in the war against accidental loss in the cloud. By offering backups for Microsoft Office 365 using Tier 1 tools from Veeam Software, DMS iTech has reached the “always-on enterprise” sector to help customers take control of data like never before.

Through Office 365 Backup, data is protected by way of securely backing up Office 365 email data to their environment, quickly recovering individual mailbox items with best-of-breed granularity and efficiently performing eDiscovery of email archives with advanced search capabilities and flexible recovery/export options. Irrespective of the fact that many so-called “insiders” have predicted the death of email as we know it in this social age, we at DMS iTech believe the email medium remains one of the most important forms of communication on the planet – especially in the corporate environment.

By fusing Microsoft’s legendary dominance in the email sector with the cloud’s promise to save IT departments time, resources and cost, we see Office 365 as the email platform of the future.

Similarly, with CloudAlly’s automated backup software, backing up to the cloud has never been so easy. Popular online services such as Office 365, Google Apps and Salesforce still rely on the trash bin for data recovery, and this means that once the recycle bin is manually or automatically purged, your data is gone – forever. CloudAlly, as offered by DMS iTech, is an automated cloud backup software for business that includes secure enterprise backup solutions to keep your company’s valuable data safe with an unlimited retention period.

DMS iTech is constantly striving to make worrying about lost or corrupted data a thing of the past. Whether it’s addressing enterprise requirements or just managing day-to-day operations, you can rest assured knowing all your data is both safe and only a few clicks away with one of our intuitive service offerings.
