Let OnX Preserve Your Vital Data


The more your business depends on data, the more you need a comprehensive data-backup program. But with cyber threats like ransomware striking without warning and data-driven applications demanding ever more storage and computing capacity, it’s increasingly difficult for companies to do all they can to protect their vital data.

Our experts configure, test, deploy, monitor, and supervise every aspect of your backups — so you can rest easy knowing you’re protected against unexpected data disasters.

That’s why OnX introduced Managed Backup-as-a-Service (BUaaS). We configure, test, deploy, monitor, and supervise every aspect of your backups.

OnX Managed BUaaS is:

  • Always on: Our experts monitor your backups around the clock to ensure they can be deployed ASAP in a crisis.
  • Security driven: Encryption makes it extremely difficult for outsiders to access your data in transit and in storage.
  • Best of breed: Our staff has the training and experience to deploy the most innovative backup software and configure it to your precise needs.

Whether you want to phase out your tape drives or outsource your backup management to focus on core initiatives, you can rest easy knowing there will always be a secure duplicate of your operating environment that can be recovered quickly to stave off a data disaster.

Why You Need OnX Backup-as-a-Service

  • Fully managed: Our service requires little to no involvement on your end. Our experts handle all the configuring, monitoring, and management of your backups, with comprehensive documentation and reporting.
  • Tested and proven: We make sure your backup scheme will work as expected, so your backups will be there when you need them.
  • Secure and compliant: Data is encrypted in transit and at the backup sites. Moving your backup to an audited environment eases your compliance burden.
  • Flexible: Retain data at your site, in our data centers, or in the cloud.

Backup-as-a-Service Helps You:

  • Simplify IT operations — Get out of the backup business and hand these tasks off to seasoned managed-backup experts
  • Modernize and upgrade — Get off tape drives and switch to best-inclass backup technologies
  • Keep focused — Keep your IT people zeroed in on your core business challenges
