The Business Challenge
As a leading international systems integrator, NewCytech provides end-to-end IT
solutions and services to thousands of customers. For decades, the company has
established strategic partnerships with the world’s most prominent and wellrespected
technology vendors including Veeam Software. NewCytech began
selling and implementing Veeam solutions shortly after virtualization began.
NewCytech’s next step was to establish a partnership with a cloud provider
so its clients could extend their on-prem Veeam backups to a secure, private
cloud. George Oskis, Executive Director at NewCytech, said his goal was to
find a cloud provider that values data availability and business continuity as
much as NewCytech.
“The choice was easy and obvious,” Oskis said. “We chose any.cloud because
they’re professional, innovative, trustworthy and reliable — any.cloud cares
about our clients as much as we do.”
As an any.cloud partner, NewCytech offers clients Veeam-powered Backup as
a Service (BaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Archive as a Service
(AaaS) and Protecting Infrastructure as a Service (PIaaS). Oskis said partnering
with any.cloud was one of the best decisions he and his colleagues made, and
they realized it more than ever during COVID-19.
“Most companies began using public cloud applications like Microsoft Office
365 when the pandemic began so their employees could work remotely,” Oskis
said. “For the first time, a large portion of their data was off-premises, and they
worried about protecting it. Microsoft makes it clear that Office 365 users are
responsible for backing up their data, so companies came to us for help. Their
data is growing at extraordinary levels and will continue to grow post pandemic.”
The Veeam and any.cloud solution
NewCytech ensures all client data is protected, available, private, secure
and redundant. Veeam and any.cloud deliver 99.9% uptime and comply
with all data sovereignty laws and international regulatory requirements
including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Veeam and any.
cloud also help grow NewCytech’s client base significantly and recurring
“Since the pandemic began, companies have experienced unprecedented
data growth as their employees use public cloud applications to work
remotely,” Oskis said. “As this growth continues post pandemic, Veeam and
any.cloud help us protect their data.”
NewCytech clients use Veeam to back up on-premises and to any.cloud’s
private cloud. Oskis said an increasing number of ransomware attacks and
data breeches during the pandemic proved that additional backup to the cloud
provides much-needed data redundancy.
“COVID-19 showed us that on-prem backup is absolutely necessary, but it’s
definitely not enough,” he explained. “It’s become a de facto standard that
data must be backed up to a cloud as well, whether it’s on-prem data or cloud
data like Office 365. A big benefit of partnering with any.cloud is being able to
assure clients they can comply with all data sovereignty laws and international
requirements like GDPR because they can choose where their data is backed
up. any.cloud helps us offer each client a personalized approach to data
protection. Their support and response time are excellent.”
Benjamin Falk Elveng, Chief Operating Officer at any.cloud, said his company’s
partnership with NewCytech is symbiotic.
“NewCytech’s support and response time are excellent as well,” Elveng said
“They know exactly what each client needs to grow their business, and they’re
great about communicating exactly how our services will support that growth.
NewCytech knows their market better than anyone, so market penetration
continues to increase for both of us. This partnership is a win-win.”
- Ensures all data is protected, available, private, secure and redundant
Veeam backs up hundreds of terabytes across thousands of virtual machines
for NewCytech’s clients. “One of the things we appreciate most about Veeam
and any.cloud is scalability,” Oskis said.
- Complies with data sovereignty laws and regulatory
requirements including GDPR
“Data laws and industry requirements can be daunting for clients, but any.
cloud makes compliance easier,” Oskis said.
- Helps increase the client base significantly and
the recurring revenue stream
“When the pandemic began, we offered something many of our competitors
couldn’t offer — unparalleled data protection for their applications running
on-premises and in public clouds,” Oskis said. “This trend will continue post
pandemic, giving us the opportunity to grow our business further.”
