Object Storage Backup Target for Data Protection

Fast, disk-based storage accelerates your RPO/RTO

When building data protection solutions, your typical choices for a backup target are costly purpose-built appliances, or maintenance-intensive tape libraries.  Cloudian breaks the price-performance barrier with a disk-based backup target that is fast, simple, and cost-effective.

Compatible with all popular backup solutions, Cloudian provides fast, reliable, on-premises storage for backup and archive data. The platform starts small and scales to an exabyte without disruption or downtime, so you can buy what you need now and grow. You get an easy-to-use scale out solution at 70% less cost than purpose-built appliances and 30% less cost than tape.

Deployment Options

On-premises Backup Target

cloudian backup target

Backup data to an on-prem Cloudian storage cluster for fast RPO/RTO. Your data remains with your data center, behind your firewall. For DR purposes, you can also replicate the data to a second Cloudian cluster at a remote site using the integrated data management tools. There is no additional software to license or manage.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud-base backup and DR with Cloudian object storage.

In a hybrid cloud configuration, you can backup data to a local Cloudian cluster, then use integrated tools to replicate that data to the cloud for DR purposes. This combines the immediate access of local storage with the off-site convenience of cloud. You get fast RPO/RTO without the cost and risk of relying on WAN connectivity for restore.
