Backup as a Service

In a multi-platform environment, the only way to ensure successful disaster recovery is by utilising best-in-class solutions.

We have carefully selected the very best solutions available for all your platforms, including IBM i, AIX, Linux, Windows and z/OS.

We know that one solution doesn’t fit all, our teams will work closely with you to understand your requirements and deploy the best solution.

As with many things in life, the end result is only as good as what you put into it, this is why we have designed and put to market our Managed Backup as a Service (MBaaS). This allows us to be in control of the solutions we provide and as part of a wider managed service. Whichever platform or solution you choose, your data will be secure and available when you need it most.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Our flexible recovery service is designed to provide a fully managed service. We provide not only the hardware, but the technical experience and secure environment in which to perform the service. This ensures the very best outcome for you and your business.

We will encourage regular recovery testing to ensure that your IT environment is recoverable within your RPO and RTO. In the event of a disaster, your business will have the confidence in knowing that Blue Chip will manage the entire exercise, enabling your business to focus on its people and clients. If it impacts your business, we class this as a disaster.

Combining our services will ensure that you not only have a fully tested plan for when the worst happens but will also give you the peace of mind knowing that your data is protected.

Our services are monitored and backed up by our 24/7/365 service desk and certified technicians, ensuring your data will be safe, secure and available for you whenever you need it.

Our specialist technicians work with IBM OS 400, IBM i, AIX, Linux, Windows, zOS, Solaris, VMS, HPUX, Teradata and more allowing us to provide expertise across the board when you need it most.

Data Centre

Your customers need to know they can use your services whenever they need to, so in the event of a disaster, a quick recovery is crucial.

Our best in class data centres are wholly owned and highly resilient. Certified to the highest security standards, we can give both you and your customers peace of mind by guaranteeing 99.995% availability of your data. Built to Tier IV and Tier III industry standards by design, they host critical IT infrastructure for hundreds of companies. Owned and operated by Blue Chip, all services are delivered by Blue Chip staff, giving us control of the whole service from start to finish.

Sustainability is another crucial factor in our aims to be a carbon-neutral organisation. We’re proud that our Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is only 1.1.

Off Site Storage

As businesses are generating more data than ever and costs for vaulting technologies continue to fall, they are increasingly moving to virtual storage solutions. But we know that for many clients, tape storage remains a vital part of their disaster recovery plan.

At Blue Chip, we have been managing offsite tape storage for organisations in all industries, and we strive to provide a high-quality service that’s also excellent value for money.

We ensure that all movements on and offsite are handled only by our dedicated teams, our strictly governed access control and CCTV surveillance means we have a full audit of all movements.

Our purpose-built tape storage facilities meet the highest standards for climate and fire control, so that your tapes stay well within their optimum temperature range for the longevity and reliability of your media.

Professional Services

We have a wealth of technology, certified professionals and as a managed services provider, extensive experience in bringing backup and recovery solutions to market across numerous industries. This also makes us an end-user and places us in a great position to advise you on your business needs for today as well as tomorrow. We troubleshoot potential problems during set up, to ensure a smooth ‘go live’, and provide hands-on help so you can benefit from your chosen solution throughout its lifecycle.

Our professional services cover many platforms and activities. We can fully manage or assist with upgrade and migration testing, as well as data migrations and upgrades.

We can utilise our vast cloud inventory to provide offline testing facilities to replicate your entire IT infrastructure. This will enable your business to have the confidence in hitting project milestones with accuracy, and technically sound solutions to meet your business expectations.
