1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

We started to explore the opportunities for data backup solutions utilizing the cloud environment. After researching other products available in the market, we discovered that there are not many available for operating systems prior to Windows 7.

Thus we made Apollo compatible with Windows XP and above. It allows clients to back up their organisations data and perform basic monitoring of data backups using a Microsoft Azure account for storage.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…provide clients peace of mind that their data is being protected, their backups are being maintained and monitored, provide clients access to their data anywhere with an internet connection, freeing up internal resources to undertake other business critical tasks.

It does this by…

The client sets their data backup schedule and when backups are to occur. Once set, Apollo will perform a range of backups. The service will then compress the data backup and move it to a Microsoft Azure account for storage. Alerts are sent should scheduled backups not occur on time.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

The Apollo service leverages Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure technology. Alternative products in the market failed to offer this service for operating systems prior to Windows 7. By making Apollo compatible with Windows XP and above we are ensuring that the product could run on most operating systems in the market.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

Our Apollo services offers clients the ability to:

  • schedule data backups
  • store completed backups on a Azure account
  • monitor Azure storage, sending alerts when a scheduled backup is not received
  • Access data backups from anywhere with an internet connection

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

…spending time and money on internal resources (infrastructure and people) to manage data backups and monitoring activities.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

For organisations not utilizing Apollo the alternatives will depend on what their IT strategy is. Organisations may utilise internal resources and infrastructure or other service providers of cloud and server technology.

5. TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

...all organisations big and small who use Microsoft SQL Server and wish to leverage the cloud storage environment.

It is available for sale through…

…a WARDY IT Solutions representative, either via our business development managers, consultants, website, offices or the good old phone. Our business development team will then meet with the organisation to discuss your needs.

Our marketing strategy is to…

At WARDY IT Solutions we implement a comprehensive range of Microsoft SQL server solutions to organisations throughout Australia. Our service offerings are marketed and sold through our business development team.
