3 Tips for Selecting a Backup and DR Service Provider

Are you wondering how to select the best backup and disaster recovery service provider for your business?

If most Veeam service providers sound exactly the same to you, it's because they are. All Veeam service providers offer a single infrastructure, end-to-end encryption, and pay-as-you-go offerings.


So what's the best way to compare providers? The difference is in the details.


Tip #1: Consider the Service Provider's Partner Level
Higher levels of partnership demonstrate two things:

  1. A deeper commitment to the technology.
  2. A greater number of trained and certified engineers.

That's more people working on your behalf to deliver the best possible backup and replication solutions.

Virtual Systems is one of the only Veeam certified gold partners in the state of Michigan.



Tip #2: Evaluate the Service Provider's Data Center Compliance Certifications
If you have confidential and proprietary data stored in the cloud, then you need data center partners that carry complex certifications. These higher-level certifications validate the service provider's security measures, availability, confidentiality, and privacy practices.

Virtual Systems carries the highest levels of data center compliance.

Tip #3: Compare Pricing Structures
Many service providers are coy about their pricing because they don't want you to be able to comparison shop.
