Backup and Recovery Spans to Salesforce
As organizations move core business functions to cloud applications like Salesforce, they are struggling to apply traditional backup and recovery methods, leading them to look for emerging solutions, according to said George Crump, president and founder, Storage Switzerland.
One emerging solution is Spanning, which recently announced its Spanning Backup for Salesforce. The new solution will debut at Dreamforce 2013 with the full release slated for the first quarter of 2014.
“Spanning is focused on providing leading-edge backup and recovery solutions for the most significant cloud applications. As the titan of enterprise cloud computing apps, Salesforce is a logical next step for us,” said Jeff Erramouspe, CEO and president, Spanning. “Salesforce is storing unfathomably large amounts of critical data – our backup and recovery solution ensures organizations are now fully protected from data mishaps and losses.”
Key capabilities in Spanning Backup for Salesforce are:
