The company also has an international presence in North America, Europe, Middle East and Singapore.
The company was floated on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in 2000, and has since evolved, through a combination of organic growth and acquisition, to become one of Europe’s leading cloud companies.
“We were impressed with the testimonials we had heard about Backup Technology and arranged a trial in one part of the business to back up the file and mail servers. Less than 24 hours into the trial, the file server failed – fortunately we had the Backup Technology system in place, and we were able to fully restore all data quickly and in its entirety with no problems whatsoever – truly a baptism of fire! Needless to say, we decided to roll out to the other offices too, which was done in a matter of days.”
