No doubt about it, we’re all going through some strange times on both a personal and business level. The COVID-19 pandemic is arguably the largest global crisis since World War II, and it’s forcing all of humanity to take a step back and reexamine all of our relationships – with each other, with other countries, with nature, and the planet. There’s a safe bet that life will be vastly different when this all blows over.
That’s also true for enterprises of all sizes. In the long term, it’s hard to forecast what business and commerce will look like post-pandemic, but it almost certainly won’t be “business as usual.” Long before the coronavirus reared its ugly head, many companies around the world had begun a gradual transition to increased automation, remote operations, and other measures for controlling costs and working more efficiently. With the rapid spread of the coronavirus, the timeframe for some of these measures – such as the move to a more remote work culture – has been highly compressed.
Enterprise data backup and business continuity requirements don’t go away in the face of a global pandemic. In fact, it’s more important than ever to ensure effective backup operations, administration, and protection of data from ransomware. But what are companies supposed to do now that their backup professionals are working from home and other remote locations?
At Cobalt Iron, we can help with Compass™, our enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) data protection solution. As a born-in-the-cloud SaaS solution, Compass makes it easy for administrators to monitor and manage from any location on the planet – even when they can’t be physically present in the office or the data center. And now, we’ve made it even easier – with our new “Make the Switch Without the Risk” program.
In a nutshell, “Make the Switch Without the Risk” allows new customers to migrate to Compass for the same price they're currently paying for service and support contracts on their existing backup software. In other words, with zero incremental increase in software costs, you can make the switch to a backup solution that is procured, deployed, and managed with virtually no onsite requirements, enabling you and your team to maintain social distancing or remote work. We’re also offering deep discounts on optimized hardware and multiple financing options. Even better, we’re not taking payments or charging interest for the rest of 2020*.
Cobalt Iron “has your back” when it comes to enterprise data backup – especially in these challenging times. If you’re ready to make the switch and empower your remote backup professionals get in touch.
