Veritas and Cloudian Simplify Data Protection
Cloudian turns information into insight with an infinitely scalable platform that consolidates, manages, and protects enterprise data. Cloudian Object Storage provides a fast, on-premises, disk-based backup target that seamlessly integrates with existing NetBackup and Backup Exec solutions. For long-term archive, Cloudian can seamlessly migrate older data to the public cloud, thereby minimizing on-site disk costs while ensuring that a DR copy is maintained offsite. For secondary backup applications, Cloudian can also be used as a backup target at remote DR sites.
Predictable Performance and Data Protection
Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec deliver reliable backup and recovery across applications, platforms, and virtual environments. A single console unites the management and reporting of both on-premises and cloud information to provide additional operating efficiencies and simplified administration.
Both Veritas NetBackup and BackupExec offer seamless integration with Cloudian HyperStore straight out of the box without
additional software. Integrated storage connectors enable easy backup to Cloudian. With data ingress throughput up to 18TB per hour (16 nodes) or more, Cloudian offers the performance and predictability you need to ensure that backup jobs complete on time. To economize on storage capacity, Cloudian offers multiple compression algorithms that compress objects on the storage side. Data deduplication options are available as well.
Multiple Offsite Storage Options
For archive and DR storage, Cloudian enables multiple options. Cloudian enables data replication among distributed nodes. By locating nodes at geographically separated regions or data centers, you can automatically maintain complete data sets at remote locations.
Cloudian also offers policy-based tiering to the cloud, which allows you to automatically migrate older data to any S3-compatible or Azure public cloud storage for long-term archive. Data protection is configurable at a granular level, letting you optimize storage configurations for different applications or data types.
Secondary Backup/DR Target
If your requirements only include offsite storage for DR, Cloudian can act as a remotely located target. To the Veritas software, Cloudian appears as cloud storage. This provides a cost-effective disk-based solution for data that must remain under your control for compliance or data governance reasons.
Secondary Backup/DR Target
With reduced hardware costs and the elimination of replication licenses, Cloudian provides substantial savings as a secondary backup target for disaster recovery.
If target deduplication is desired, Cloudian offers optional software which can achieve backup data reduction ratios of 30:1 or more. The deduplication software runs on industry-standard servers. For archive or DR applications, the deduplication solution can be co-located with the backup servers, thus minimizing the traffic over the remote link.
Cloudian HyperStore Solution and Benefits
Cloudian HyperStore is a multi-tenant, multi-data center storage system. You can deploy HyperStore as software to be implemented atop your existing storage infrastructure, or as a fully integrated rack-ready appliance.
Both deployment options deliver multi-data center storage with unlimited scale, optional data tiering to any S3 or Azure cloud, and support for all S3 ecosystem applications. HyperStore is designed for simplicity and durability, for easy day-today operations.
