SIM-Cloud BaaS. Cloud backup


Save time and space by using incremental backups

BaaS Remote: backups are stored in a datacenter some distance away from the basic infrastructure (Germany)

BaaS Local: backups are stored in the same data center (Germany)

Secure data transfer via dedicated connections

Backups are available for all types of data that can be backed up

Great KPIs in terms of RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective)

Easy setup and control powered by SIM-Cloud Dashboard

24/7/365 access via SIM-Cloud Dashboard or API

Benefits of using a public cloud

Cutting IT costs

CAPEX to OPEX

Easy to scale

Secure cloud infrastructure

FAQ

How do you handle client segregation in the cloud?
We isolate the data and the applications running on virtual machines using KVM hypervisor. Client’s data traffic in private networks is protected by VXLAN, which prevents access from one isolated network to another. These technologies guarantee that the clients’ data and private traffic are isolated from each other. Besides, you are free to use extra data and network traffic encryption mechanisms on top of our technology stack.
Are there any limitations for virtual machines configuration?
For ease of use and to balance the load in the cloud, we have prepared 32 basic virtual machine configurations, from 1vCore/1Gb RAM up to 32vCore/192Gb RAM. 99% of those configurations match the requests coming from our clients. Custom VM configurations can be prepared for major projects. Each VM configuration comes with: 1 static IPv4 (public) + IPv6, unlimited channel of 100 Mb/s per each project, Basic V Router – up to 100 Mbit/s. You can also choose the type and the amount of drive space, an extra remote drive space for backup, an extra vRouter, the necessary number of dedicated public IPv4+IPv6 per each virtual machine, or even order a whole set of subnetworks.
Which OSs can I use in the cloud?

For quick and easy launch of cloud projects, there is a list of operating system images available to be installed on the virtual machines for your reference in the user dashboard.


By default, all ready-to-install operating system images in SIM-Cloud are provided with no license (either trial versions or license-free software). The client bears full responsibility for obtaining a software license. You can purchase a license on your own, use the licenses you have purchased before or request SIM-Networks to obtain the licenses on your behalf.


For system security reasons, it is by default forbidden for clients to install an OS from their own images. If you need to install an operating system that is not on our list, we need to discuss it on a case-by-case basis. If you haven’t found the necessary OS on the list, please contact our support team, and our experts will help you out.

Which cloud services are available for a user?
SIM-Cloud users have access to the following services: Backup-as-a-Service, VPN-as-a-Service, NAT-as-a-Service, DNS-as-a-Service, Notification-as-a-Service.
How can I manage my cloud resources?
SIM-Cloud can be managed via a SIM-Cloud Dashboard or using an API.
