Bangalore: Xerox, the document technology and services company, has been one of the last to extend a host of services for enterprises that fit into the SMB category. With its experience and expertise in the fields of process and document management, it now offers its own range of cloud services, along with a backup and recovery service.

The cloud backup and recovery service, according to Xerox, is capable of restoring data, applications and operating systems within 24 hours, since data will be backed up, and encrypted on a daily basis.

The services are priced for SMBs that earn between $10 million and 150 million in revenue, so smaller companies might consider this quite an investment, according to a report from ZDNet.

However, this might be a wiser investment for SMBs especially because Xerox is offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and is using its service provider division Affiliated Computer Services (ACS). The IaaS serves is provided for midrange and Intel systems, and will ensure complete tracking, auditing, and reporting functionalities. This means SMBs will have more resources to deal with the numerous management and integration challenges that come with the layering of cloud services onto an already existing infrastructure.

In doing so, the service proves to be a lot more helpful than the same type of services provided by Amazon and Rackspace, mainly because, according to ZDNet, these services tend to leave you in the lurch when it comes to technical support.
