(GlobeNewswire) - With Backup-as-a-Service by Proact, Munters get a reliable daily backup
solution, together with enhanced data protection and disaster preparedness.
Sweden-based Munters is a global leader in air treatment solutions, with
manufacturing and sales in 30 countries. Munters predominantly operates its IT
infrastructure and hosting internally, using its own staff. Some applications,
including functions with the highest availability and support requirements, are
outsourced to hosting service providers or delivered through Cloud services.
Munters began evaluating a new backup solution for its enterprise needs with the
intention to purchase, deploy and operate this internally in the same fashion
as with the existing backup process. Proact was prepared to deliver backup
software to match this requirement, but recommened that Munters consider Backup

We were pleased to learn that Backup-as-a-Service by Proact offered the safest
solution for our needs, and that a managed service also offers greater
flexibility, compared with a conventional backup solution, says Per Brandt,
Director Group IT, Munters. The workload on our IT operations staff is reduced
by a provider that we can trust, while we have the option to extend the service
to cover the greater part of our Groups needs.
Munters is now using Backup-as-a-Service to support its business in Sweden and
three subsidiaries in Europe, with the option to add more markets subsequently.
Proact has recently relaunched its Backup-as-a-Service using an enhanced
technology platform that offers extended support for various types of storage,
multiple systems environments and product vendors. It can be implemented for
conventional data centre operations as well as for Cloud services or hybrid
environments with data stored in multiple locations: in-house, with hosting
services, or in the Cloud. Backup-as-a-Service also eliminates the need for
customers to invest in products or dedicated staff for managing backups and all
costs are fixed and predictable.
Our updated Backup-as-a-Service both reflects and goes beyond the paradigm
shift in infrastructure design we are experiencing at customer sites today,
says Lena Eskilsson, Managing Director at Proact Sweden. We often encounter
organisations like Munters, that are open towards the Cloud and its great
potential, while the bulk of their mission-critical applications and data remain
Proacts fully managed backup solutionalso provides Munters with an additional
level of disaster preparedness, as copies of enterprise data are always
maintained. Previously, Munters relied on an off-site vault for secure storage
of tape backups, a service that is no longer needed.
