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.”
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 revenue stream.
“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.”

COVID-19 changed the way we live and work. It also changed the way we protect data. As companies transitioned from on-prem IT infrastructures to hybrid cloud infrastructures so their employees could work remotely using public cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365, they wanted an additional layer of protection for their rapidly growing data.
