#193 – HYCU Protégé Office 365 Backup as a Service

Chris EvansData Protection, Guest Speakers, HYCU Inc

This week, Chris and Martin are talking to a podcast repeat offender, Subbiah Sundaram, VP of Products at HYCU. HYCU has recently announced the availability of Protégé for Microsoft Office 365, delivered as SaaS or Backup as a Service (BaaS). This continues an expansion of the HYCU and Protégé backup offerings that started with Nutanix data protection and has expanded past on-premises virtualisation to encompass the public cloud and now SaaS.

The conversation covers a wide range of topics relating SaaS and data protection, including the way in which services are implemented via APIs provided by SaaS vendors. With unlimited data storage, SaaS backup offers real opportunities for data mining and analysis.
