CITIC Telecom CPC First to Deploy Veeam Cloud Connect in Asia Pacific
SmartCLOUD™ BRR now well-equipped with Virtual to Cloud offsite backups and replication capabilities to cope with the rising demands for the Always-On Business™
Hong Kong – 12 August, 2015: CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (“CITIC Telecom CPC”), a whollyowned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited (SEHK: 1883), today announced that through its partnership with Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, is the first service provider in Asia Pacific to deploy Veeam® Cloud Connect, a fully integrated, fast and secure way to backup and restore from the cloud, strengthening CITIC Telecom CPC’s SmartCLOUD™ BRR (Backup, Replication, and Recovery) virtual to cloud capabilities.
As a Veeam Cloud Provider (VCP), CITIC Telecom CPC is able to deliver offsite backups, standby replica VMs, and warm disaster recovery sites, as well as powering a full range of service offerings, including Backup-as-aService and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service through its SmartCLOUD™ BRR solutions. VCPs have the ability to drive both top-line and bottom-line revenue growth through increased customer retention with the peace of mind that comes from Veeam-powered availability solutions.
“We’re thrilled to be offering Veeam Cloud Connect as part of our SmartCLOUD™ BRR service suite,” said Daniel Kwong, Senior Vice President, Information Technology and Security Services for CITIC Telecom CPC. “Backups really have never been easier and mastering the crucial “3-2-1 rule” of keeping three copies of data, on two types of media, with one copy being offsite is more achievable and affordable than ever before, leveraging CITIC Telecom CPC’s cloud service centres in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.”
CITIC Telecom CPC first partnered with Veeam in 2012 for its SmartCLOUD™ BRR Cloud to Cloud Backup & Replication solution. And now, through the VCP program, CITIC Telecom CPC is able to further deliver Virtual to Cloud services with premium features and functionality across offsite backups, complete visibility control, modern backup architecture as well as end-to-end encryption that promise to help customers avoid the risk of catastrophic and detrimental business data loss. In addition, customers can also enjoy these benefits through a more financially efficient OPEX model – allowing for unlimited times of data transmission and restoration.
One of CITIC Telecom CPC’s SmartCLOUD™ BRR customers, Mr. Pedro Ng, Director of Information Technology at Peak Reinsurance Company Limited said, “Our company has been using CITIC Telecom CPC’s SmartCLOUD™ BRR services since 2013 and I am particularly impressed by its fast backup speed. Compared with legacy backup solutions, it greatly shortens the backup time with email reports to ensure each backup job is completed successfully. As a company in the BFSI industry, we demand for stringent backup service requirements, and CITIC Telecom CPC’s SmartCLOUD™ BRR is a solution that we can rely on.”
In addition to being the first VCP to offer Cloud Connect in Asia Pacific, CITIC Telecom CPC was recently upgraded to Gold Status within Veeam’s Cloud Provider partner program. This award is a result of the long standing partnership between both companies and, CITIC Telecom CPC meeting the VCP gold partner requirements.
“We are proud of our partnership with CITIC Telecom CPC,” said Julian Quinn, Vice President, Asia & Japan for Veeam. “As a Gold VCP, CITIC Telecom CPC is well positioned to enable customers to fulfil the offsite requirement without having to make large capital investments in offsite infrastructure or management. With Veeam, service providers are able to build recurring revenue from their existing customers, expanding their footprint within their customer base and, establish relationships with new customers who are demanding nextgeneration cloud services.”
