When leading international beauty brand Clarins opted to replace its on-premise backup solution due to limitations, it chose SecureVault - the award winning Cloud-based service from IT specialist Blue Chip.

SecureVault is a fully-scalable Cloud backup solution that can accommodate increased volumes of data as organisations expand. Data is secured across Blue Chip’s two state-of-art-datacentre locations, giving Clarins robust protection and peace of mind that their data is accessible 24/7, should disaster strike. It is structured on a pay-per-usage basis, making it extremely cost effective in comparison to outdated on-premise solutions, which require hardware investment and maintenance.

Anthony Green, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Chip explains: “Clarins was seeking to partner with an IT company with a proven track record in Cloud based backup and DR - an area in which we have excelled. Following Blue Chip’s advice and recommendation, Clarins chose SecureVault for its low maintenance, reliability and scalability, as well as its unique Disaster Recovery (DR) capability. By combining bare metal restore backups with Blue Chip’s technical expertise and a fast Recovery Time Objective onto Blue Chip’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform, they can now have complete confidence that their IT systems can be restored quickly following the loss of a site.”

Blue Chip provided Clarins with a complete IT package, covering design, implementation, thorough testing - including test restores of large volumes of data across the WAN - and solution review and sign-off. Blue Chip also provided ongoing technical support via Blue Chip’s 24/7 Service Desk. Significantly for Clarins, SecureVault integrated well with its existing infrastructure and software.

Steve Exeter, IT Manager at Clarins said: “With SecureVault we now have a hosted solution with robust business continuity round-the-clock which is vital to the success of an international business. Blue Chip offers the complete IT Package and it’s always a pleasure dealing with them. Their dedicated support desk, reliable service levels and scalable solutions are vital tools in any IT Manager’s armoury. I would definitely recommend Blue Chip to any IT Manager looking for a first-class solution provider.”
