The AvePoint Solution
When it came to protecting the cloud-based data of his IKEA franchises, Sveinsson had high standards. AvePoint Cloud Backup, he learned, could meet them all.
The 100% SaaS solution provides automated, comprehensive backup and restore services for Microsoft 365, Salesforce, and Dynamics 365. It features built-in storage and encryption and offers flexible pricing plans based on the number of users or the amount of data.
With backups performed four times daily, Cloud Backup is designed to accommodate the latest Microsoft APIs and handle granular rollbacks (including Teams chats, Groups, and Planner).
“I need to secure all of my data, not just part of it,” said Sveinsson, who estimates IKEA Baltics and Iceland will back up about 20 TB of data in M365 after the fourth store opens. “Teams chats are basically the same as email now. It’s a key communication point within the organization.”
Meanwhile, achieving GDPR compliance was easy with AvePoint’s dedicated European data centers and multi-geo capacity for customers to choose where their data lives — as well as functionality to comply with “right to be forgotten” requests.
Sveinsson purchased Cloud Backup in spring 2021 via Sensa, the IKEA franchises’ managed service provider. (The Icelandic MSP and reseller was recently acquired by Crayon).
Setting up Cloud Backup was simple. And with the AvePoint Elements partner portal, MSPs can continue delivering a seamless customer experience for backup and other solutions via a dedicated platform to manage support tickets, to view activity across the business, and to connect with 24/7 support teams.
“Ölvir was aware from day one that AvePoint was the leader in the market and the superior solution,” said Ingvar Linnet, a product management lead at Sensa. “For him, it was never about just ‘good enough.’”
