IQMS Introduces IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup to Give Customers Robust Protection of Their IQMS Manufacturing ERP System Data
IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup Provides Scalable and Affordable Solution for Backing Up and Recovering the Data Powering Manufacturing Customers’ IQMS Systems
PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – August 9, 2016 – Data can be the lifeblood of manufacturing operations, containing information that keeps a facility running as smoothly and profitably as possible. To strengthen protection of its customers’ data, IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup.
IQMS software uniquely combines robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) and MES functionality into one comprehensive system in which all data is managed by the same embedded Oracle database. Now with IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup, customers can automatically backup their IQMS system data to the robust Oracle Cloud, eliminating the need to manually backup data while providing secured offsite storage. The cloud service is available to all manufacturing customers, whether they have IQMS software deployed on-premises or in the cloud hosted by IQMS. Because customers pay a monthly service fee, there are no capital expenditures or large upfront costs, making IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup an affordable option for manufacturers of all sizes.
“Our manufacturing ERP customers range from start-ups to Fortune 1000 manufacturers, but they all have one thing in common: the need to preserve and protect the data that drives their operations and decision making,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “With the introduction of IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup, we are putting data backup within the reach of all our customers, giving them more confidence that their critical business information can be secure and always there when they need it.”
“Manufacturing is more data-centric than ever so protecting that data is important,” said Dan Miller, senior vice president, ISV and OEM, Oracle. “Oracle Cloud can deliver enterprise-grade services at every level of the cloud technology stack, enabling IQMS to serve the needs of manufacturers with confidence.”
IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup for Superior Data Protection
IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup provides significant protection compared to some on-premises solutions, since the backup is performed at a remote facility, allowing the data to be protected even if a manufacturing facility experiences a technology failure, fire, or natural disaster. A software “agent” can automatically transfer data from the IQMS system to storage in Oracle Cloud. In the event of a system failure or emergency, the data can be quickly restored. This recovery can be performed on the original system from which the data came, or on an alternate system, based on the user’s needs.
Having IQMS data backed up on Oracle Cloud provides a number of benefits. With Oracle, storage auto-scales as the data requirements of a manufacturer’s organization and operations change, giving customers the confidence that the backup solution will be able to adapt to growing data needs over time. Additionally, data is encrypted prior to and during transmission to Oracle Cloud, providing security controls at all points in the process. Finally, inside Oracle Cloud, data is replicated multiple times for redundancy within the cloud storage environment.
Using IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup provides additional benefits to IQMS customers. First, IQMS brings the expertise to deploy the cloud backup solution to best support a manufacturer’s implementation of the IQMS system. Notably, IQMS sets up a retention policy for old and newer databases, so a customer can go back to a previously known good backup should the need arise. Importantly, IQMS provides a total solution, so manufacturing customers only need to call one company when they need help with the cloud backup of their IQMS systems.
