Pipelines protection 

Azure DevOps Pipelines are the backbone of CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous development/deployment). Keepit protects these critical automations with “last known-good” point-in-time restores and change identification that help you quickly roll back your pipelines to a good state and keep your DevOps on track.

Streamline data governance

Audit Logs. Track any user activity inside the Keepit platform, allowing you to monitor, review, and investigate any potential breaches.

Job Monitor. Detect abnormalities in the job monitor and discover changes on a snapshot basis as well as the number of changes made.

Data Sovereignty. Keepit operates its own data centers in multiple regions globally, helping you meet sovereignty requirements.

The Right to be Forgotten. Stay fully compliant with GDPR by preventing data from being previewed, downloaded, and restored to your production database.

Security Controls. Manage who has access to data and what permissions they have with granular Role Based Access Controls (RBAC) and ensure strong authentication with MFA and SSO.

Dedicated independent cloud

Most alternative cloud backup solutions store your backed-up data on the same public cloud infrastructure that hosts your primary data, which potentially exposes your company to several risks.

With Keepit, your company’s backup data is stored on an independent cloud infrastructure in two mirrored data centers in the data center region of your choice, ensuring data availability and sovereignty.

Building our own independent cloud allows Keepit to manage supply chain risks and provides tremendous control over costs, which enables us to offer unlimited hot storage and predictable “all-in” pricing.

Frequently asked questions

Where is Azure DevOps backup data stored?

Your data will be securely stored in Keepit’s independent cloud. We run our own data center regions, operate on our own hardware, and our own people manage the infrastructure.

To ensure data sovereignty, we have six data center regions in:

  • Americas: Washington D.C., USA & Toronto, Canada
  • Europe: London, United Kingdom
  • EU: Copenhagen, Denmark & Frankfurt, Germany,
  • Asia: Sydney, Australia

Once a customer chooses a Keepit region for backup, their data never leaves that region. Not only does Keepit guarantee that backup data will always go to that region, but no processes exist that could even transfer backup data out of that region (aside from customer-initiated restores and downloads, of course). Should systems in a region ever need to be moved out of that jurisdiction, then Keepit will negotiate the moves with all affected customers prior to execution.

What is the price?

It depends on the Service Offering you choose. See more on our pricing page.

Are you ISO27001, PCI, AICPA SOC, and ISAE3402 certified?

Yes, to all the above.

Further, uniquely to Keepit, our staff and software development are also ISO27001 certified — not just our data centers as most vendors. Read more.

Are you GDPR compliant?

We are GDRP compliant, and our HQ is located in Denmark, EU. Read more.

How often do you back up data?

Twice daily. We have found trying more often doesn’t give our customers more successful or complete backups due to Microsoft throttling limitations.
