Pantopics LogoLondon Technology consultancy Panoptics, has today announced the release of their new service offering BaaS - Backup as a Service. BaaS is a hosted, secure backup solution deployed using industry leading Veeam Cloud technology.

Hosted and replicated between 2 tier 3+ datacentres in London Docklands and Slough, Panoptics BaaS provides a robust, flexible backup solution for clients on-premise infrastructure, colocation hosted solutions and Panoptics hosted virtual machines.

Panoptics are only one of a handful of technology partners in the UK accredited to offer Veeam Cloud services.

With a completely scalable service level framework, Panoptics BaaS is an efficient and practical solution for any size of business. Clients benefit from attractive cost savings with a scalable pay as you go service without compromising the critical service required.

Simple, secure & easily integrated into existing systems BaaS gives businesses the confidence of knowing that not only will their data be backed up quickly but is easy to retrieve as and when it is needed. Industry leading technology enables one single way of providing short-term recovery, long-term retention and Disaster Recovery (DR), in turn eliminating any worries about data loss or interruptions to business operations.

Panoptics have trialled this new service with a number of customers, some with complex networks and multi-location operations across the world.

One of which includes Clarion Events; their service delivery manager Liz Hughes explained ‘we needed an off-site replica of 52 of our virtual machines, and had storage constraints in our second data centre. Panoptics scoped and implemented the solution within just a few days and we have enjoyed the benefit of having an additional disaster recovery site for less than the cost of a new shelf of disks. We consider Panoptics to be a highly trusted partner having worked with them for several years; the service we receive from them is invaluable. Their consultative approach to support and recommendations they provide help us to run projects quickly and efficiently’.
Andy Lang, Panoptics technical director said ‘Consistent, off site backups are unattainable  for most customers, so the ability to provide Backup and Disaster Recovery automatically using our Veeam Cloud Connect means that we are able to solve these two critical requirements with one integrated service.’

Panoptics provide the complete spectrum of IT requirements including managed services, supply services, datacentres and connectivity to a broad client base of SMB’s and blue chip global brands across diverse industry sectors throughout the world.

The Coventry and Warwickshire based 2 office accountancy practice of Armstrongs Accountancy Limited are actively strengthening their position and presence across the North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire area through a series of growth and networking initiatives. The business has recruited 5 new members of staff to its new Nuneaton office within the last year, after having relocated from its previous office in Hinckley. The most recent recruit is a qualified local girl, Jodie Tyler. Jodie hails from Nuneaton’s Higham Lane School and began her accountancy training soon after leaving school, qualifying 6 years later.

Jodie is actively involved with all clients at the Nuneaton office and is assisting the partners at Armstrongs in growing the firm’s presence within the area. Jodie is known for being hands on and continues the Armstrongs’ ethos of being personable, yet still professional in her approach to dealing with client matters. Her ability to take charge and communicate effectively has secured her the position of assistant manager at Armstrongs.
The firm also has an open position for a trainee accountant and is particularly interested to hear from suitable school and college leavers. Interviews are scheduled to start towards the end of May or early June, with the successful candidate starting in September.

Armstrongs have just secured the BNI Nuneaton chapter’s accountancy seat in a bid to reach out and build upon its existing connections within the Nuneaton and North Warwickshire business community.
Paul Farmer, a partner at Armstrongs, said ‘We pride ourselves on being a modern, growing and dynamic accountancy practice. We are making strides to grow the business by investing in new staff who will be working with our innovative office systems and practices taking our business and client service standards to the next level. We are actively becoming a paperless cloud based office which gives key staff the flexibility to offer our clients a true 24 hours a day service.’

Armstrongs has a diverse range of clients and looks after the affairs of audit group companies, SME’s, partnerships, sole traders, and charity accounts. The company also offers tax compliance services and advises high-net worth individuals on tax strategy and planning.

Armstrongs are the first accountancy practice in the West Midlands and Warwickshire area to have won the 2014 Midlands Independent Firm of the Year award at the British Accountancy Awards in London last November. Additionally, Paul Farmer was a finalist for UK Practitioner of the Year award making him one of the top 9 practitioners in the UK.
The company is actively involved in fundraising for various charitable causes for its local community and is currently supporting Nuneaton’s Ambleside cricket club.
