Zen Internet launches Zen Vault Enterprise

May 06, 2010- Zen Internet, one of the UK’s leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs), has today launched a new online data backup solution, Zen Vault Enterprise.

Zen Vault Enterprise is a new solution providing automated backup for any combination of multiple severs, desktops PCs and laptops across businesses of all sizes, including organisation based across different locations. This latest solution compliments Zen’s existing data backup products for individual PCs and servers.

There is a huge cost to the UK economy every year to restore business data that has been lost due to either human error or IT failure. According to the Times*, an independent survey of SMEs found that more than 60 million working days are put in jeopardy each year as employees are forced to down tools while the IT department restores lost data.

The simplest way for businesses to protect their data is to deploy an online data backup solution, which is exactly why Zen’s customer Explore Learning, has already deployed Zen Vault Enterprise.

‘Online backup makes so much sense, it’s offsite, it’s secure and there is no human action required to change tapes etc. Zen Vault Enterprise makes perfect sense for us. We are a Zen customer and know that their service and support is excellent and that our data is backed up and stored in the UK. Should we have a problem, we know that Zen will be there to help us,’ said Stuart Morgan, IT Director, Explore Learning.

‘The solution itself is simple to install and once set up the end users can forget about it. The support department have a console setup so that backups can be monitored and emails are sent from servers should anything fail. It gives great comfort to know that our data is safe and in the hands of people we know and trust,’ said Stuart

Specifically designed for businesses with multiple offices and large storage requirements, Zen Vault Enterprise enables businesses to efficiently centralise data backup within Zen’s Data Centres through the provision of a large allocation of mirrored, UK based SAN storage.

Automation of the backup process is provided using Attix5 professional backup and recovery software for desktops, laptops and servers. Enterprise solutions incorporate all the technical features of both Zen Vault Express and Professional and therefore provides an overall offsite backup solution for multiple data sources in a business.

Zen Vault Enterprise also gives IT administrators’ full visibility and control over the backup process through the use of a centralised management console. The management console enables administrators to monitor the performance of device backups through a single portal therefore reducing the time and effort associated with managing backup processes.

‘We were delighted to be able to provide Explore Learning with an online data backup solution to support its business needs. The launch of value added services like Zen’s Vault Enterprise clearly demonstrates our commitment to expanding our hosting portfolio to meet our customers’ requirements,’ said Andrew Saunders, Head of Product Management and Marketing.
