Melita Business is offering customers a full Microsoft 365 backup service, hosted at its state-of-the-art Data Centre in Madliena. The service is offered through Smart Cloud, a joint venture between Melita Business and Smart Technologies, and provides the data security and restoration capability required by companies to protect their data. The service is also valuable from a legal and compliance perspective, enabling customers to access historical data quickly.

Malcom Briffa, Director of Business Services at Melita Limited, said, “Melita Business, in addition to investing in world class infrastructure, has also created several successful partnerships to be able to provide a full suite of connectivity, communications and data services to our customers. Smart Cloud, which combines the infrastructure and managed service experience of Smart Technologies with the security, international connectivity and up-time offered by the Melita Data Centre is a perfect example of this. By bringing together our respective strengths we continue to launch new services like Microsoft 365 backup, which provide the peace of mind businesses need to operate efficiently.”

The importance of backups is widely recognised across all business sectors as data volumes grow exponentially. Companies that use Microsoft 365 need to take responsibility of ensuring all their data is backed up securely, while remaining accessible. Smart Cloud’s Microsoft 365 backup service caters for all circumstances by providing both short term backups or long-term archives of all data on Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams as well as granular or point-in-time restorations. The use of the local ISO-certified secure Data Centre enables faster data recovery and favourable legal jurisdiction protections and access rights. Smart Cloud is offering various Microsoft 365 back-up packages which start from €38 per month, all of which offer Outlook, Teams and OneDrive Storage. Businesses choosing this Smart Cloud service are provided with a round the clock support and strict service level agreements.

Joe Aquilina, CEO of Smart Technologies, said, “Smart Cloud has grown at an impressive pace since being set up in 2021. We recently doubled our storage capacity and computing power to meet the demand for existing products. At the same time, we have continued to work with Melita Business to provide the connectivity and data infrastructure which businesses operating in a modern economy need. Microsoft 365 backup is an important addition to our product portfolio which will be valuable to many of our customers.”
