Backup & Recovery in Azure
Protect your on-premises & Office 365 environment in Azure
Leveraging public cloud infrastructure for backup, archiving, and disaster recovery is an everyday use-case.
Not all cloud data protection technologies are equal, however! You may find you are waiting for longer and paying over the odds when it comes to recovery.
By combining Azure Blob tiered storage with HubStor’s unique recovery optimisation service you can protect your on-premises and cloud workloads (such as Office 365) in a way that boosts business continuity and saves you money.
Super-Fast Recovery Times
Unlike traditional backup systems, HubStor has the ability to virtualise or ‘ghost’ targeted subsets of your data according to policies you define.
This results in converting stale data into small pointer files (shortcuts) which seamlessly perform a recall when a user or application opens them.
In the event of a restore, only the most recent data gets fully ‘pulled’ from the cloud. Not only does this save cloud egress costs, it massively reduces recovery time, with any items restored as just a shortcut retrieved on demand as needed.
Unrivalled, Multi-Layer Security
By default, HubStor detects and captures any changes within 30 seconds of it occurring.
You can control how long all versions of files are kept, with the ability to define the number of daily, weekly and monthly versions you require.
There is also a minimum of three synchronous copies of the data, and you can upgrade to have three additional copies in a secondary cloud data centre!
HubStor provides unrivalled protection for your file shares and Office 365, enabling you to restore to a last known healthy state.
- Guard against ransomware attacks
- Provide point in time recovery (something that Microsoft does not offer for Office 365)
- Restore individual files
- Get super fast restores (including self-service)
- Easily restore Teams Wiki data (it’s tricky with Microsoft)
If you’re also concerned with malicious or accidental activity against your cloud storage account, HubStor can additionally create a backup copy of the data in a shadow cloud storage account.
If you want to backup on-premises systems, there’s no appliance to manage: HubStor runs as fully-managed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in your own Azure tenancy or ours.
We will guide you through the process of defining, implementing and refining a Business Continuity plan that leverages Azure and HubStor capability.
With HubStor you also have the opportunity to transform the way you do storage and massively reduce your on-premises storage hardware costs AND improve your data governance.

What makes HubStor different?
With no startup costs, a pay-as-you-go consumption, and the ability to run HubStor in your own Azure tenant, HubStor’s Cloud backup service is a great way to get immediate value from the cloud without commitment.
Unlike other cloud backup vendors, HubStor’s gives you the power to virtualise subsets of your file share data (typically older, inactive data) to provide the fastest Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for your users and applications.
In addition to a super-fast RTO, HubStor’s unique recovery optimisation avoids downloading excessive amounts of data from your cloud backup – saving you money.
