The F family’s leaders gave a gratitude trophy to the inventor group including Nguyen Khuong Duy, Nguyen Minh Tuan, Tran Quoc Sang, Nguyen Phuc Loc, Truong Tran Quoc Cuong, Nguyen Ngoc Hieu and Pham Le Gia Dai.
FPT Backup Native has been developed from the initiative of the inventor team of the Development Center of Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) turned into a real product. This is a service providing backup and recovery features of virtual machines on the FPT Cloud platform. This “made by FPT” product owns many outstanding features and performance, which help customers to rest assured to protect their important data with optimal cost.
The authors shared that FPT Backup Native comes from the actual needs of customers when the data loss problem has been causing serious financial consequences for businesses. Therefore, the team quickly enhanced the idea and implemented a complete “backup virtual machine” solution to thoroughly solve this issue.
In the initiative implementing process, Cloud technology engineers sometimes suffered from some difficulties because the decompression and de-duplication algorithms were not really good together with the backup and recovery time was slow. Thousands of tests and hundreds of thousands of analyses have been carried out for the sake of finding a way to optimize the product and create a competitive advantage for FPT Backup Native when compared to other services on the market.
