(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

-as-a-Service, which delivers a complete data centre backup function as a

managed service.

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.
