Metallic is always seeking new opportunities to bring its award-winning services and data backup and recovery solutions to new markets. Organizations throughout the Asia Pacific region have sought data management solutions for their cloud-native infrastructures and rapidly growing SaaS application usage.
When the pandemic inspired a surge of remote workers, APJ-based companies swiftly invested in on-premises and further cloud infrastructure while leveraging new software to keep operations running smoothly. This has resulted in disparate data storage and a high risk of data sprawl, making networks difficult to manage and keep secure. Companies are now looking for ways to streamline their bulky infrastructure, cut costs and maintain flexibility and security—especially in the face of rising ransomware threats and other cybersecurity concerns.
Introducing new services to APJ
The Metallic team is excited to announce its most recent international service expansion, following up on Czech Republic and Slovakia. Now the Metallic® Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) offerings are available in Asia, in places such as Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Singapore. This brings our availability to over 30 countries, facilitated by Metallic managed service provider (MSP) partners.
Why is this such a big deal?
Metallic delivers industry-leading solutions for global data management challenges that are simple, flexible and integrated with cloud and hybrid cloud workloads. This can help companies avoid point products that solve only small parts of common data backup and data protection issues. Metallic’s capabilities include coverage for:
- SaaS applications
- Hybrid cloud
- Datacenter workloads
- SaaS storage
All of this can eliminate disparate data solutions and siloed data. With simplified management, reduced infrastructure costs, and fast time to value for customers, Metallic provides quick and easy protection for all data with an easy-to-use SaaS model.
What does this innovative solution look like?
Here’s a prime example of how Metallic is transforming businesses in new countries. Dialog Information Technology, an Australia-based IT services organization, was struggling to meet data retention and management requirements for Microsoft Office 365. The company wanted a cloud backup solution to support its continuity strategy while reducing costs.
By deploying Metallic® Office 365 Backup, the company protected its whole Microsoft Office 365 environment and enjoyed a $20,000 reduction in annual licensing cost with a fixed cost per user model. The company also avoided upfront costs by $50,000 by adopting a SaaS-based Metallic Office 365 Backup, leveraging dedicated backup instead of building its own infrastructure. It now takes them 95% less time to manage backups for Office 365 environment and has freed up staff to focus on expanding the business rather than maintaining backups.

Metallic will continue to bring its data backup and storage solutions to new countries around the world, and new products are being developed all the time, such as the all-new Metallic® Backup for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Azure Active Directory.
