How SThree Backs Up 2,400 Salesforce Users With One Solution
We’re happy to be at Salesforce World Tour New York this week in Booth #136, talking to all kinds of companies about how Spanning Backup for Salesforce can protect their Salesforce data in the cloud. Here’s to hoping we’ll see you there! And meanwhile, here’s an example of what we’re doing for organizations that rely on Salesforce.
SThree PLC started in 1986 as a modest four-person staffing services business in London; today, the company is a global leader in recruitment. A key part of its strategy for continued growth is to use the Force.com platform for a set of cloud-based solutions. As those solutions grow, Spanning Backup for Salesforce will be there to protect the company’s data in the cloud. This way, instead of having to spend time policing backups, the SThree IT team can focus on initiatives that actually add business value.
Garry Lengthorn, director of IT services, is confident Spanning Backup for Salesforce can protect the data SThree maintains in the Force.com cloud, no matter how many Salesforce-native applications get added to the mix. Lengthorn reports the Spanning solution has performed as promised since the start: “Spanning Backup did everything we wanted it to do, was easy to get up and running, and proved itself when we tried some restores and point-in-time backups.”
In addition to delivering reliable backup cloud-based services, Spanning Backup for Salesforce enables SThree to keep its backup data in Spanning’s European data center, rather than transmitting it outside the European Economic Area. That ability is becoming non-negotiable for more and more European-based companies as new data sovereignty concerns grow and privacy policies take effect in the area.
Read the complete SThree story to learn more about how Spanning Backup for Salesforce helps keep the company focused on business instead of backup. And if we missed you at Salesforce World Tour events in London and Chicago, or at Dreamforce, come see us this week in New York at our fourth and final Salesforce event appearance this year.
