Details

Industry: Registered Charity Company
Number of Users: 1,000

Outbound™ Manages Datto DRaaS Solution for a UK registered charity company.

Background

Registered Charity transforms lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation across the country.

Today they work with over 60,000 families through their 200 community-based services.
Their innovative services reach out to those in need, and they strengthen families and communities, build skills and resilience and improve the life chances of children and adults.

This charity needed a trusted IT provider to add value and take over an existing contract from another provider who let them down but remain extremely cost effective.

They needed a partner that understood their environment and their needs by having the experience with the vendors solution.

What is DRaaS / BCDR?

Business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) goes beyond backup to enable rapid restoration of individual files or entire servers.

Our implementation also allows you to continue business operations directly from the cloud. Datto Continuity combines the convenience of local backup with secure and immutable offsite storage in the Datto Cloud.
