Backup-as-a-Service is making sense for enterprises due in large part to its agility, simplicity and remote accessibility. The problem is that the shift to “as-a-service” requires a mind shift for enterprise IT. Additionally, there are a myriad of solutions with different terms and capabilities available on the market today.
Due to increased interest and adoption among enterprises, Evaluator Group has released a series of deliverables designed to help IT professionals evaluating Backup-as-a-Service offerings.
The initial release of research includes four free Technical insight reports. Find out more and download these free Technical Insight reports below.
The term “cloud data protection” is nebulous, touching a variety of IT service delivery options and sources for protection.

Definitions are based on our research and conversations with customers and vendors alike.
Backup-as-a-service (BUaaS) represents a fairly complex market in terms of its variety of deployment models. It can mean strictly the backup software procured as a subscription service through the cloud, as a partially managed service with protection infrastructure managed, or as a fully managed service. In this free report, we cover BUaaS solutions from Actifio, Cohesity, Dell EMC, Veeam and more!
Core value propositions of BUaaS include IT infrastructure and management cost savings, ease of use, remote access, and scalability. In-line with these value propositions, Evaluator Group has seen initial adoption of BUaaS offerings primarily “downstream” in the marketplace among small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs) and smaller-scale enterprises. In this free report, we cover the fundamentals of BUaaS to guide IT organizations along the solution evaluation process.
