iseek Communications has launched a new cloud-based Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) using Veeam Cloud Connect, offering customers a best-practice backup solution. iseek Communication’s new cloud backup solution enhances its iseek Cloud service, by adding disaster recovery capabilities that will get customers up and running again in minutes, with end-to-end security and seamless backup copy operation.
iseek Communications is a leading cloud, data centre and connectivity provider. iseek Cloud has been designed to meet the increasing demand for reliable, scalable and affordable enterprise class storage and server solutions.
