Ransomware Protection with Veeam and Cloudian on Lenovo ThinkSystems

Ransomware Protection with Veeam and Cloudian on Lenovo ThinkSystems

Cloudian target for Veeam provides immutable backups for protection against ransomware

Challenge: More Data and New Threats

IT managers must manage data growth, meet stringent RPO/RTO objectives,
and protect data from loss or malicious attacks. Your infrastructure choices for a backup and storage target are critical to meeting these data protection objectives. Traditional storage appliances as backup targets are expensive and lack scalability. Public cloud targets can limit bandwidth, resulting in lengthy restore times. Wherever your backup data resides, a ransomware attack could render that data useless, potentially shutting down operations. The need for a new approach to data protection has never been greater.

Solution

The Lenovo ThinkSystem series for Cloudian HyperStore and Veeam Backup & Replication simplifies and accelerates your data backup and recovery processes providing enterprise-grade data protection. Customers can meet their backup window and RTO/RPO objectives while enabling an offsite data recovery strategy that dovetails seamlessly into their daily backup workflow. Cloudian HyperStore enterprise storage complements Veeam Availability Suite with a fast, on-premises, disk-based storage and built-in ransomware protection. At 70% less cost than public cloud or traditional enterprise storage, Cloudian offers an innovative solution for better backup storage.
