Fully-managed backup and disaster recovery service now available across Europe

Continuum has made Continuity247, its fully-managed backup and disaster recovery (BDR) platform, generally available to managed IT service providers across Europe.

Last month, Continuum announced extending its international offering with a data centre in London. Continuum is securely storing end-client data out of the London-based data centre.

“We are already working with a number of MSPs to bring robust data protection and secure and reliable cloud storage to businesses in Europe.”

Rory Duncan, an analyst at 451 Research, said: “Managed services that provide added functionality to service providers’ hosted offerings are increasingly in demand by customers of all sizes.

“Managed backup, security and disaster recovery are of particular interest, given the increase in cyber-attacks facing enterprise companies, as well as their obligations for data protection and industry compliance – particularly in Europe.”

Continuity247 is backed by Continuum’s Network Operations Centre (NOC) with 700 technicians, who proactively monitor and verify backups, provide recovery and testing support, troubleshoot, and ensure backups continuously run for small- and medium-sized business clients.

Continuum’s European headquarters are located in Bracknell.
