HYCU introduced R-Cloud, which enables Software as a Service (SaaS) providers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to provide backup and recovery services for their SaaS offerings in days. R-Cloud is a low-code, purpose-built data protection development platform that makes it simple for SaaS vendors to provide secure and scalable enterprise-class backup and recovery services to their users.
With over 17,000 SaaS applications in use across organizations today, 99% of them lack reliable backup and recovery capabilities. With the proliferation of SaaS and the rapid modernization of applications, IT departments are finding it more difficult than ever to identify, manage, and protect business-critical applications.
In an effort to closely engage with current customers and SaaS solution providers and to ensure that there is an easy way to visualize all data across the enterprise, identify what data is protected, ensure that data is not left unprotected, and be able to recover data in the event of human error or malicious attack, R-Cloud is the product of four years of development and a number of patent-pending innovations.
To ensure that all SaaS data is protected, the R-Cloud platform enables SaaS companies to take advantage of HYCU’s data protection expertise, orchestration, identity and access management, policy management, and analytics.
Simon Taylor, CEO of HYCU stated, “If the number of vendors in one of the industry’s leading market reports have only protected seven SaaS applications to date, the current approach to backup and recovery SaaS has no future. The entire approach is broken. New SaaS offerings are being built. New approaches to protect them are a must. That is why we have re-thought the way data protection is done and found a way to provide ISVs and SaaS vendors the ability to add data protection with ease. Granular backup and recovery for SaaS is now available in as little as four days when it would have taken at least four quarters before to develop.”
Currently, the average development time for new data protection is at least four quarters, which HYCU has reduced to four days. Users will benefit from the introduction of R-Cloud in the following ways:
R-low-code, Cloud’s integrated development environment enables SaaS companies and ISVs to rapidly develop new R-Cloud modules for their SaaS services, reducing development cycles to days rather than years.
Diagnosis through graphical visualization: Auto-discovery and mapping of all applications and services – SaaS, PaaS, DBaaS, public, and private cloud – provides businesses with a comprehensive visualization of their entire data estate and protection status. Organizations get a detailed and comprehensive view of their business-critical data and its security status.
Tight integration with data protection technology: SaaS providers and independent software vendors (ISVs) are able to combine their application intelligence with HYCU’s discovery, orchestration, security, policy management, and reporting capabilities.
HYCU Protégé Marketplace data protection services: Organizations can subscribe to and access a growing library of protected SaaS, DBaaS, and PaaS applications.
New recovery service that is secure and patented: SaaS users will have access to the following through applications built on R-Cloud:
- Users can set up automatic backup procedures that run constantly with one click of the mouse.
- Recover granular elements quickly across any SaaS application that is protected.
- Role-based access control is provided by self-service capabilities, which also give SaaS administrators and users the ability to safeguard and recover important data.
- Confidence and security – All developed data protection services are securely stored and protected against ransomware.
