Ricoh Canada Inc. adds RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery to cloud services suite.

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada Inc. today announced another key expansion to its versatile cloud suite of services: RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery. Focused tightly on speed of backup and full protection of data, this incredibly simple-to-use solution delivers a sophisticated and feature-rich service without the burden of traditional costs and overheads.  RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery joins Ricoh Canada's cloud based Enterprise Content Management solution, RCloud Services: ECM, launched earlier this year.

By combining on-premises appliances that provide local storage and backup with a secure, managed cloud infrastructure, RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery delivers a robust, fully-automated and network-optimized solution to protect customers against data loss. "Safeguarding business data today is absolutely vital," said Eric Fletcher, VP Marketing for Ricoh Canada. "It's an area of concern we hear about repeatedly in the market, and Ricoh's RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery addresses this head on: it's a cost effective solution that brings together a unique hybrid of cloud and local backup technologies - hosted entirely in Canada.  It provides rapid mobile access to files, as well as secure file sync & share capabilities as a managed service - all within a pay-what-you-use cost structure that makes clear financial sense for the SMB market."

By leveraging its cloud infrastructure and CTERA's cloud enablement platform, Ricoh Canada's RCloud Services: Backup & Recovery solution provides a set-it-and-forget-it approach that is entirely managed for the client.  This removes the headaches of user based administration duties, and eliminates the traditional challenges of a model that demanded high costs and operational overhead associated with tape backup and dedicated off-site storage services.

"Cloud technology has taken a service formerly reserved only for a select few, and made it available - and in a highly improved form - to any business that values its data.  And I'd argue that means everyone," said Mr. Fletcher.
