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.
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.

The modernization of the data analytics architecture that started in the cloud combines the flexibility, cost-efficiency, and scale of data lakes with the data management and ACID transactions of data warehouses giving us the Data Lakehouse. Data Lakehouse allows enterprises to analyze large amounts of structured, semi-structured, or unstructured data, for instance, web server logs, RDBMS data, NoSQL data, social media, sensors, IoT data, and third-party data, all stored in one place, in the same format as its source systems in a modern data lake.
Cloudian HyperStore running on Lenovo SR650 as a scale-out storage cluster comprised of shared nothing storage nodes is the S3 data lake that enterprise customers need to create their own on-prem Data Lakehouse.
Organizations are consuming and creating more data than ever before and many are
applying AI/ML on ever larger data sets, to make better decisions in near/real-time
and unlock new revenue streams. Traditional storage systems simply can’t handle
the processing needs or the scalability required for iterative analytic workloads and
introduce bottlenecks to productivity and data-driven decision making. The ability
to unify data silos to accommodate diverse workloads along with high performance
compute speed is crucial for today’s modern organizations.
The Lenovo ThinkSystem series running Cloudian HyperStore and WekaFS offers a stateof-the-art optimized storage solution for high-performance and scale-out workloads.
Deployed on Lenovo ThinkSystem, Weka file system (WekaFS) and Cloudian
HyperStore™ provide an integrated storage solution allowing you to overcome the
challenges associated with accelerating and scaling your data pipeline, while lowering
overall storage costs associated with data analytics. WekaFS is a distributed, scaleout and POSIX-compliant file system, built on a modern architecture using NVMe Flash
and supports Ethernet or Infiniband transport, with low latency, multi-protocol (POSIX,
NFS, SMB, S3, GPUDirect Storage, CSI) high performance access. WekaFS distributes
metadata throughout the cluster via patented mechanisms that prevent hot spots to
maximize performance levels. Performance is predictable, consistent and scales linearly
as more nodes are added to the storage cluster.
Weka is industry-leading storage systems for performance workloads on the Lenovo
SR630 running the Weka file system (WekaFS). An entry-level cluster size for Weka
requires eight server nodes, which are then presented as a single storage cluster.
Klik.Solutions is an innovative IT solutions and managed service provider (MSP), offering a wide range of services to its clients, including managed infrastructure, managed cloud, managed security, and technology assessments. The firm’s clients include Unilever, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, Carlyle Group, University of Maryland, and LSI. Klik.Solutions is headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland and has operations in Washington, D.C., Dallas, and Amsterdam.
Klik.Solutions has seen strong interest from their customers in backup and data retention services that let them move specific data off-premise. Many enterprise customers that engage with Klik.Solutions are struggling to manage the growth and cost of structured data on-premise. They’ve had to continually buy ahead of need and effectively over-provision expensive storage, even for backup and archive data. On top of that, they needed keep backup copies offsite.
Offsite data protection is a core competency for Klik.Solutions. They wanted to offer customers a private cloud alternative that would stand shoulder-to-shoulder both technically and economically with public cloud solutions. “Our customers value knowing where their data is, and being able to access it immediately without worrying about data retrieval costs,” said Marc Winter, Chief Marketing Officer at Klik.Solutions.
