The AvePoint Solution
With AvePoint Cloud Backup, Esri UK gets the comprehensive backup, granular restores, and fast recovery they need. The backup and restore solution offers automatic daily backups and provides built-in storage, flexible pricing plans, and more for Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Google Workspace, Azure, Power Platform, and Dynamics 365.
Esri UK chose AvePoint as its third-party backup solution because of Cloud Backup's unlimited backup policy and its ease of use. The latter was the biggest win for Esri UK. Bedocs says, “I was generally surprised by how easy it was to find things; for example, to find a file. I've used other backup software before, but this seems like a more straightforward software to use.”
Esri UK regularly tests their backups, restoring elements of OneDrive or a mailbox to ensure it’s still running smoothly. Esri UK also performs a Dynamics 365 restoration about once a month, or as required. Esri UK uses Cloud Backup to roll back changes, allowing users to pick up where they left off. Bedocs says, “The process is much easier and takes less time now.”
Esri UK also adopted Salesforce for its support and professional services team. They started reviewing third-party backup solutions after realizing native options would not meet their business needs. The answer to their backup needs turned out to be: AvePoint Cloud Backup. With features like sandbox seeding and robust restores (including metadata), Cloud Backup made securing their Salesforce information easy.
Using one solution to back up all their critical content has streamlined their data protection efforts. Bedocs says, “Consolidating our backup to one vendor and not having to jump between different solutions saves us time. Also, renewing licenses once to cover the backup of our systems is much more manageable.”
