What is included in the service?

Our BackUp as a Service (BDRaaS) solution takes away the stress of managing and maintaining your backup integrity and strategy.

✅ Initial Backup Audit – We work with you and your team to analyse exactly what you are backing up, where you are backing and we will highlight any gaps against best practice

✅ Backup Strategy – Following the audit, recommendations to improve your backup strategy will be made to ensure appropriate retention and security of your data

✅ Monitoring – Our team will monitor all backup jobs daily, alerting failures and logging for all reports

✅ Remediation – If any issues are found, our team will work to ensure they are resolved before the next scheduled job run

✅ Reporting – Backup environment is reviewed monthly with quarterly strategy meetings put in place


Our BDRaaS offering is broken down into the following 6 key components:

flexible IT deployment


✅ Hardware Agnostic Deployment – Planet IT can work with new or existing hardware systems to maximise your return

✅ Multi-Site and Cloud Ready – No matter the location, Planet IT can ensure all locations are protected to the same standard

monitoring and reporting


✅ Daily Monitoring – All backup jobs are monitored daily for completion, efficiency, and future proofing. We cut out the white noise to focus on what matters

✅ Strategy Reports – In addition to daily monitoring, our monthly and quarterly strategy reports cover capacity planning for data growth, patching, efficiency, remediation trends and much more

industry leading RTO & RPO

INDUSTRY LEADING RTO (Recovery Time Objective)

✅ Priority Planning – We will work with you to understand the most crucial workloads, prioritising recovery objectives to minimise the impact of downtime to your business

✅ Infrastructure Management – Following initial discussions, Planet IT will implement instant recovery measures to suit your business

cyberattack protection


✅ Backup Encryption – Our team can ensure your backups are encrypted end to end, in transit and at rest, adhering to the most stringent of compliance regulations

native failover testing


✅ Integrity Checking – All backup jobs are automatically checked and verified on completion to ensure they can be relied upon when and if the worst should happen

✅ Offsite Replication – Our team can create replica servers in real time to ensure they are usable in the event of an attack

enterprise technology

✅ Affordable and Scalable – Our services and technologies have been selected for their affordability and scalability, in line with business growth
