“Our clients recognize that cloud-based services can offer significant improvements in agility and cost-savings but they also require flexibility in adopting cloud services so they can meet their individual needs. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work, which is why a hybrid approach to backup services is so important. EVault’s solutions make it the perfect partner for delivering Backup as a Service and so sustain our commitment to our customers to provide choice and agility through the Fujitsu Cloud service offerings.”
