Award Highlights Cohesity’s Success Empowering Channel Partners to Deliver Innovative Solutions That Address Critical Issues in Hybrid Cloud Market

SAN JOSE, CA – December 06, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced it has been recognized as “Cloud Services Vendor of the Year” for 2018 as part of the Channelnomics Innovation Awards program.

Now in its third year, the Channelnomics Innovation Awards are designed to recognize channel players across North America who bring innovation, forward thinking, and excitement to the channel. Cohesity was selected as “Cloud Services Vendor of the Year” for its significant efforts in the U.S. channel, helping partners grow profitable businesses by delivering value in the growing hybrid cloud market. The winners were determined based on product range and development, channel and marketing programs, and service and support.

“Legacy solutions for data protection and other secondary workloads weren’t designed for a cloud-first world, and require add-on cloud gateways that are expensive and reduce performance. Cohesity natively integrates with the world’s leading cloud platforms, including AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, with a single interface, creating a seamless solution that is incredibly easy to use,” said Todd Palmer, vice president of worldwide channels, Cohesity. “This award recognizes Cohesity’s success empowering its channel partner community to build cloud divisions or otherwise adopt cloud-focused practices that offer a full range of solutions for customers to take advantage of public cloud infrastructure for data protection, test/dev, and other critical secondary workloads.”

Whether in the cloud or on-premises, organizations around the world are grappling with mass data fragmentation – the huge and growing proliferation of secondary data across locations, silos, and management systems that is incredibly complex to manage and can create major budget and resource challenges within IT organizations. Cohesity is focused on enabling partners to provide customers with a highly efficient, hyperconverged secondary apps and data platform that spans from remote offices to on-premises data centers to the cloud. This approach empowers customers to easily manage data across a variety of workloads and locations, solve mass data fragmentation challenges, and extract maximum value from their data.

Nuremberg, Germany – December 6, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — ownCloud announces the second generation of End-To-End Encryption (E2EE) for ownCloud Enterprise. The plugin enables encryption and decryption by generating a “key pair” including a private key and public key, which takes place directly with the sender and recipient in the web browser. The new Version also provides the option of using hardware keys on which a private key is stored and never leaves the token, such as smart cards or USB tokens. This eliminates the risk of attackers accessing the key and significantly increases security.

E2EE for ownCloud Enterprise is the safest and easiest way to exchange encrypted files between two or more people regardless of the internal security infrastructure available in a company. This means that neither the sender nor the recipient of a file is bound to a specific environment. Unauthorized third parties and even administrators do not have access to the encrypted files, which cannot be decrypted even if the hardware token is stolen.

The decryption of a sent file takes place directly in the user’s web browser. In order to guarantee that the private key cannot be accessed, the decryption of the file keys can be outsourced to an external key service, which also supports communication with external hardware tokens. Afterwards this decrypted file key is used by the browser for the actual decryption of the file.

The file exchange can be made via the ownCloud Outlook plug-in, as well as with any web browser. Since the file exchange takes place within ownCloud, there are no restrictions on file types and sizes.

Hardware Key Support for Enhanced Security
The ability to use hardware tokens is particularly relevant where legislation demands the encryption of certain files. It is extremely important that the file can only be opened by the authorized recipient. This is made possible by the use of certain hardware keys such as smart cards or USB tokens, which only work in combination with a certain device on which the Key Service is installed.

The usage of the E2EE plugin is particularly useful wherever there are high compliance requirements for file exchange. In addition to the public sector, this also includes companies that process sensitive personal data (e.g. customer, insurance or medical data).

Secure Encryption when Sending Emails with Outlook
The E2EE plugin makes it much easier to send encrypted files by email. All users have the option of sharing a file within the ownCloud user interface or by sending an email directly via the ownCloud Outlook plugin. Additional encryption is no longer necessary. After registration, an individual key pair is created for the recipient consisting of a public key on the ownCloud server and a private key on the user’s local computer (2048 bit RSA).

The Outlook plug-in offers a further advantage. In many companies, sending emails via Microsoft Outlook is still standard. However, there are significant restrictions on the file size when sending emails. With the plugin, this limitation is no longer an issue, as attachments are no longer sent, but only retrieved by the recipient on the ownCloud server. The share settings can also be changed at any time.

The plugin is, therefore, also an attractive option for companies that already use encryption but would like a simpler solution. Applications are often used that compress files and provide them with a password, which in turn has to be transmitted to the recipient in a cumbersome manner (e.g. by telephone). The E2EE plug-in from ownCloud helps to radically simplify this process by replacing all of the different encryption and decryption steps with one central solution.

Transparent Overview of all Recipients
By combining the ownCloud Public-Share function with E2EE, every user can now create a secure and encrypted file drop by sending a link to an encrypted download area (e.g. by email) to the respective recipient. The file is, thus, completely secured and can only be opened by those ownCloud users who are transparently displayed on the upload website for all others. Anyone who uploads a file and encrypts it can see exactly who has access to it.

The second generation of E2EE is available in addition to each ownCloud Enterprise Subscription from 20 EUR per user per year and starting with 50 users. The encryption software is also a key component of ownCloud.Online, the hosted cloud offering for businesses.

ownCloud administrators can start immediately by enabling a 30-day trial version via the Marketplace. The plugin is also included in the 30-day trial of ownCloud.online.

As with all ownCloud Enterprise features, the source code for E2EE is available to customers on request to be able to verify the encryption independently.

About ownCloud
ownCloud is the largest Open Source Filesharing solution in the world with 200.000 installations and more than 25 million users. The Open Platform for Secure Enterprise Filesharing combines consumer-grade usability with enterprise-grade security.

Tessellate OS, an IT support company from London, United Kingdom, shortens VM backup time, cuts backup costs, and saves backup administration time with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – December 5, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting virtualized and cloud environments, has announced today that Tessellate OS has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment.

Tessellate OS Ltd is an IT support company and a hosting solutions provider that operates within the media industry in London in the United Kingdom, and New York in the United States America. Tessellate OS provides hosting solutions for large international sites; as a result, the company needs to provide additional backup solutions that are reliable and robust. Overall, Tessellate OS supports multiple customers across various sites, such as data centers and different hosting setups.

Tessellate OS’s environment is virtualized, thus VMware VMs contain private information like customer’s documents, private and purchase information for the hosting side of the business, as well as file servers and Microsoft SQL servers. In addition, Tessellate OS needs to protect e-commerce information, which is essential for the success of the company, and thus needs to be reliably backed up. Failure to do so could result in compensation claims, as well as the loss of customer’s confidence in Tessellate OS. Therefore, having accurate VM backups is imperative for preventing data loss and downtime.

In the past, Tessellate OS encountered multiple backup solutions and settled on a combination of two. However, as their data storage grew, the reliability and speed of the previous VM backup solutions started to become a hindrance to the company. This resulted in the company having to search for an alternative solution. “With one backup software, we experienced many failed backup jobs. The other backup software was great for smaller setups, however, for large backup jobs, the product just could not keep the same speed. In addition, incremental backups were slow and hard to manage. Fundamentally, we needed a VM backup solution that would provide fast incremental backups that were easy to manage and understand, with easy navigation that showed all the information in one go,” says Justin Walker, Managing Partner at Tessellate OS Ltd.

Tessellate OS deployed NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a pre-configured virtual appliance to protect their virtual environment. NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers availability of Tessellate OS’s critical IT systems with the help of forever-incremental backup and instant recovery. The company’s initial impression about NAKIVO Backup & Replication was that the software was quick to install, easy to use, and provided quality customer support. “Even during the initial testing stage, we received timely and professional support, when we had some initial configuration issues, so that has influenced our decision to go with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. As for the whole setup experience, the process took five minutes, you can start backing up in a matter of minutes after that, but everything is pretty smooth and straightforward. Right now, the product is deployed as a pre-configured virtual appliance, but in the near future, we are considering QNAP NAS installation as well. With QNAP NAS, we are hoping to see even better performance,” reports Justin.

The VM backup is faster with NAKIVO Backup & Replication in comparison to Tessellate OS’s past backup solutions. With forever-incremental backup, backup jobs can be completed in less than a few hours. “The initial full backup would run approximately 12 hours, while the forever-incremental backups can complete in a few hours. NAKIVO Backup & Replication shortened our backup windows for sure and allowed us to keep expanding, without further investments in faster hardware. This has been especially useful for our expansion into hosting, which for us results in many more VMs that need to be backed up,” Justin explains.

Moreover, with job chaining, Tessellate OS can link backup jobs, and thus can run one after another. The job chaining functionality helps automate and simplify backup management; it also makes scheduling backup jobs a breeze. “Job chaining is one of my favorite features, as this functionality allows us to run multiple backup jobs one after another, without guessing how long each will take. Meaning overnight backups are right now automated to the maximum,” says Justin. In addition, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, Tessellate OS can complete all VM backups jobs in one day, rather than in a period of time that could last up to several days. “Previously, we were backing up certain VMs on one day, other VMs on another day. Now, we can run all VM backups overnight, without any issues,” adds Justin.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication also provides Tessellate OS with the ability to recover entire VMs and files from VM backups. “Recovering individual files from VM backups is a plus, especially when some accidental deletions happen. However, by having instant VM recovery functionality, we can bring back an entire VM online, in case of any catastrophic failure. Therefore, instant VM recovery is one of the most critical features for us,” Justin says.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication deployed as a pre-configured virtual appliance provides Tessellate OS with fast forever-incremental backup, job chaining, instant VM and file recovery. Due to forever-incremental backup, Tessellate OS can back up all of their VMs in a few hours overnight. With job chaining, all backup jobs can be linked to run one after another, thus improving scheduling and saving time on backup administration. Lastly, Tessellate OS can recover entire VMs and individual files with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. “The previous backup products could not handle our growing data, while NAKIVO Backup & Replication allowed us to back up all VMs in a single day. We have doubled the amount of our VMs in the last three months, thus we are glad that we switched to NAKIVO Backup & Replication because we have consolidated everything into a single solution. Ultimately, NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped us save money and backup administration time,” says Justin.

LONDON, UK – December 06, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — AccelStor, the manufacturer of award-winning all-flash arrays (AFAs), this November announced the latest version of its intelligent firmware, NeoSapphire OS version 4.0. New to the platform, version 4.0 features snapshot image backups to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, delivering integrated device-to-cloud data protection capabilities and increased storage efficiency.

AccelStor adopts the Redirect-on-Write (ROW) and differential backup mechanism in snapshot technology, and customers can configure the automatic backup schedule to fit their needs. In contrast with the traditional copy-on-write method, with ROW the actual data activity involved in taking the snapshot is drastically reduced, greatly eliminating the double write performance penalty while also providing storage space-efficient benefits. The snapshot backup and recovery features are invaluable tools for backing up snapshot images to the public cloud, NFS/CIFS shares of another storage device, or for rolling back to data from a specific point in time.

“The explosion of data and the need to protect it, combined with new threats are reshaping customer expectations and fostering a new demand for consistency,” said David Kao, AccelStor Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “AccelStor AFA solutions are designed to give freedom and confidence to organizations by enabling them to mount a powerful, data-centric defense spanning both local devices and the public cloud.”

  • Production-ready Kafka and Docker integration: Modern cloud applications need to act on events as they arrive, especially in use cases that involve fraud, anomaly detection, financial systems, IoT, time series, etc. The DataStax Apache Kafka Connector makes integrating DSE with such event-based activity easy. For Docker, certified images are now available for production usage. Production support for Docker simplifies deployment of DSE in containerized environments.
  • Easier, more scalable operational analytics for today’s cloud applications: Cloud applications require always-on, operational analytical capabilities to personalize each customer’s experience and analyze interaction behavior. DSE Analytics in 6.7 provides more scalable and predictable performance for analyzing large data volumes, out-of-the-box high availability for no downtime, plus simpler and more secure management for data stored in DSE’s file system (DSEFS). Lastly, performance benchmarks show DSEFS scaling to 40TB per node with no decrease in query performance.
  • Simplified enterprise search for geospatial applications: Applications that focus on logistics, financial networks, and IoT use cases need enterprise-class geospatial capabilities. DSE Search delivers more support and easier development capabilities in DSE 6.7 for building out geospatial functionality.
  • Improved data protection with smart cloud backup/restore support: DSE OpsCenter 6.7 provides improved data backups for those using cloud deployments with support for generic S3 storage and Microsoft Azure, along with much faster restore times reducing downtime for critical databases.
  • Improved performance diagnostics with new insights engine and third-party integration: The new DSE Insightsengine in version 6.7 collects all data needed for fast performance analysis, and integration with external monitoring systems makes it easy to analyze DSE in conjunction with other parts of the software stack.

“It’s no secret that the cloud is changing the data requirement for enterprises. 451 Research indicates that data workloads are moving to the cloud at a fast pace, with 61% of organizations saying that by 2020* cloud will be the primary environment for data platforms and services, compared with 40% this year,” says James Curtis, Senior Analyst, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research. “As such, enterprises will require database offerings that are able to accommodate multi-cloud, hybrid environments.”

DSE 6.7 and updated versions of OpsCenter, Studio, and DSE Drivers are available for download, as is updated documentation to guide installation and upgrading.

“DSE is the only long-term, strategic choice for an active-everywhere enterprise data layer,” Schumacher continued. “We heard from our customers and are delivering a feature set that will help solve their biggest data challenges. DSE 6.7 will give our enterprise customers exceptional cloud deployment flexibility, make cloud data management easier and make developing cloud applications faster than ever before.”

Expands secure cloud-based media collaboration by connecting creatives and facilities to Amazon S3 & Glacier, Backblaze and Microsoft Azure

Basingstoke, UK — December 5, 2018 – /BackupReview.info/ — EditShare, a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, AQC and media management solutions, today announced Flow 2019, the media asset management (MAM) solution that simplifies media sharing and collaboration with easy-to-use tools to manage media acquisition, assembly and delivery beyond the confines of the facility. Flow currently supports on premise storage vendors such as Avid ISIS/NEXIS as well as any SMB shared storage. Flow also connects to leading archive providers such as Amazon S3, Generic S3, StorageDNA and Masstech FlashNet.

This latest release improves storage compatibility with new support for Amazon Glacier, Archiware P5, Backblaze and Microsoft Azure. Flow connects siloed storage pools to facilitate file ingest, asset tracking, search and retrieval, storyboarding, media transcoding and migration policies as well as delivery for editors, colorists, and creatives everywhere.

“To meet the demand, production houses and content producers need to tap into a much larger pool of creative storytellers and leverage talent wherever they are located and, if need be, bring them into the creative process remotely. From a production standpoint, it’s an enormous challenge and this is where Flow solves the pain point.” Tara Montford, managing director EMEA at EditShare explains, “This latest release of Flow opens up a whole new world of storage vendors, that previously could not utilise a media asset management solution such as Flow. Adding in additional storage vendors such as Microsoft Azure Files and Amazon Glacier whilst also including NFS storage platforms, brings a wealth of opportunities to the Flow ecosystem, enabling more clients to index and categorise their valuable media.”

Flow brings intelligent file ingest, asset indexing, search and retrieve as well as tools to storyboard, annotate and collaborate on media projects. It also offers advanced automation and workflow design tools to automate complex processes such as transcoding and redundant media migrations including moving content from production to nearline to archive storage spaces.

New capabilities in Flow 2019 include:

  • Expanded storage support with Amazon Glacier, Backblaze and Microsoft Azure Files which provides immense flexibility in terms of scaling productions resources and content volume.
  • Amazon Glacier allows users to archive to and restore from Amazon Glacier vaults.
  • Backblaze b2 allows users to back up their content to offsite secure data centers.
  • Microsoft Azure Files cloud support enables backup and archive to the Microsoft cloud. Flow can also index existing media.
  • Support for Archiware P5 allowing archive and restore to LTO as well as another supported cloud backends.
  • Enhanced video and audio codec support.
  • Support for a virtualized KVM environment.
  • Support for third-party storage solutions that utilise NFS mounting.

We chose Replibit and the Axcient team due to the support and attention we received during our evaluation period.

Westborough, Mass., December 4, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid®, a leading provider of Intelligent Hyperconverged Storage for Backup (IHCSB) with data deduplication, today announced that the company has been honoured by SVC with its 2018 Hyper-convergence Company of the Year award, a category newly introduced this year. Winners were announced at the SVC Awards Gala Ceremony at The Millennium Gloucester Hotel London on November 22, 2018.

The SVC Awards honour the products, projects, and services – as well as companies and teams – operating in the cloud, storage, and digitalization sectors, recognizing the achievements of end users, channel partners, and vendors. According to SVC, there were a record number of nominations across all categories in 2018, so finalists did particularly well to make the shortlist this year and for companies like ExaGrid to win. Voting took place amongst the readership of the Digitalisation World stable of publications with the number of votes again breaking previous records.

Peter Davies, Sales Manager of the Digitalisation World portfolio at Angel Business Communications (organisers of the SVC Awards), said: “I’m delighted that we have this annual opportunity to recognise the innovation and success of a significant part of the IT community. The number of entries – and the quality of the projects, products, and people they represent – demonstrate that the SVC Awards continue to go from strength to strength and fulfil an important role in highlighting and recognising much of the great work that goes on in the industry. This year’s finalists represent the very best in the industry, and ExaGrid was voted as outstanding by our readership to win the Hyper-convergence Company of the Year category.”

Central to its very architecture, ExaGrid solves the myriad of performance challenges inherent to deduplication for backups, restores, and VM boots. By converging compute with capacity in each appliance, and in concert with virtually any backup application, ExaGrid’s scale-out backup storage with unique landing zone perform at a rate that is 3X faster for ingest and over 20X faster for restores and VM boots than its closest competitor. In addition, ExaGrid is the only solution that ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows. Using ExaGrid, IT can benefit from the fastest backups, restores, and VM boots; a fixed-length backup window; and the ability to easily scale their systems, buying what they need as they need it and eliminating forklift upgrades and product obsolescence – all at the lowest cost up front and over time.

“We are honoured to have been voted SVC’s 2018 Hyper-convergence Company of the Year,” said Andy Walsky, ExaGrid’s Vice President of Sales, EMEA/APAC. “We believe it reflects ExaGrid’s popularity as the industry’s premier hyper-converged backup storage solution for customers looking to replace outdated backup technology in their IT environments with a more current, all-in-one approach.”

In 2018, ExaGrid began shipping its largest, most powerful appliance to date – the EX63000E – which has 58% more capacity than its predecessor, allowing for a 63TB full backup (configurable to an 80TB full backup). Due to ExaGrid’s scale-out technology, up to thirty-two EX63000E appliances can be combined in a single scale-out system (an increase from the previous twenty-five combined appliances), allowing for a 2PB full backup, which is a 100% increase over the previous 1PB. The 2PB full backup in a single system is twice the size of ExaGrid’s closest competitor – the Dell EMC Data Domain 9800. The EX63000E has a maximum ingest rate of 13.5TB/hr. per appliance, so when thirty-two EX63000Es are combined in a single system, the maximum ingest rate is 432TB/hr.

ExaGrid’s published customer success stories and enterprise stories number over 360, more than all other vendors in the space combined. These include a two-page narrative and customer quote, demonstrating how satisfied customers are with ExaGrid’s unique architectural approach, differentiated product, and unrivalled customer support. Customers consistently state that not only is the product best-in-class, but ‘it just works.’

New report shows Kaspersky Lab technologies detected 346,000 new malicious files every day in the first ten months of the year

Woburn, MA – December 4, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky Lab issued a new report today, revealing that of all the new malicious files detected by the company’s technologies in 2018, the number of files that were backdoors rose by 44 percent. The report also found that the overall volume of ransomware increased by 43 percent, and nearly one-in-three (30%) computers encountered at least one online malicious threat in 2018. These results show that malware, particularly backdoors and ransomware, remains a significant risk for consumers and businesses heading into 2019.

In 2018, backdoor and ransomware (Trojan-Ransom) detections comprised 3.7 percent and 3.5 percent, respectively, of all new malicious files collected by Kaspersky Lab in the first ten months of the year. Detections of backdoors rose from 2,272,341 in 2017 to 3,263,681 in 2018; while ransomware was up from 2,198,130 detections in 2017 to 3,133,513 in 2018.


Share of new malicious file detections by behavior in 2018

Overall, Kaspersky Lab’s detection technologies handled 346,000 new malicious files every day in the first ten months of the year. The number and range of new malicious files detected on a daily basis is a strong indicator of the interests of cybercriminals involved in the creation and distribution of malware. In 2011, Kaspersky Lab technologies detected 70,000 new files a day, and by 2017, the number had risen five-fold to 360,000.

In 2018, Kaspersky Lab solutions repelled 1,876,998,691 attacks launched from online resources located all over the world. The company’s web antivirus solution detected 21,643,946 unique malicious objects.

“2018 saw a slight relief in daily detections,” said Vyacheslav Zakorzhevsky, head of anti-malware research at Kaspersky Lab. “On the one hand, this could indicate criminals’ interest in reusing old malware that has proven efficient. On the other hand, the spikes in the number of backdoor and Trojan-Ransom detections show us that malicious actors are in constant search for new ways to compromise victims’ devices and make money out of them. The enduring interest in ransomware and its continued development is a warning to stay vigilant – both against existing, known cyberthreats and new, as yet unknown ones. This is why we continue to improve our detection and protection systems on a daily basis, making sure our customers are secure.”

In order to stay protected, Kaspersky Lab recommends the following tips for consumers:

  • Do not open any suspicious files or attachments received from unknown sources.
  • Do not download and install applications from untrusted sources.
  • Do not click on any links received from unknown sources or in suspicious online advertisements.
  • Create strong passwords and be sure to change them regularly.
  • Always install updates when prompted, as some of them may contain critical security bug fixes.
  • Ignore messages asking to disable security settings on your operating system or antivirus software.
  • Use a robust security solution across all of your devices, such as Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky Security Cloud.

More 2018 threat statistics are available in Kaspersky Lab’s full report on Securelist.com

This report is a part of part of the Kaspersky Security Bulletin 2018. To see Kaspersky Lab’s threat predictions for 2019, please visit our blog. The Story of the Year on malicious cryptocurrency mining and the Review of the Year are also available on Securelist.com

GLASGOW, Scotland – December 3, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — iomart, one of the UK’s leading Managed Cloud Service Providers, has partnered with Cohesity to offer secondary data storage and application services including backup and recovery, data replication and target storage, to its customers.

John Lucey, Cohesity’s UK and Ireland Country Manager, said: “We are delighted to have iomart onboard as one of our major World-Wide Service Providers. iomart has recognised the competitive advantage Cohesity’s technology can bring to its service offerings and has the skills, maturity and execution capabilities to satisfy its customers’ business requirements whether that be on-premise, in the Cloud, or in a multi cloud/Hybrid model.”

Data sprawl is a huge challenge particularly because secondary data and applications-including backups, disaster recovery, files, objects, test/dev, archives and analytics-are massively fragmented across a complex patchwork of specialised point products and infrastructure silos in the data centre and the cloud. Many organisations use a multitude of point products to manage these silos which is complex, costly and inefficient. With Cohesity’s hyperconverged secondary data and apps solution, iomart customers can aggregate all their secondary storage function on to a single unified, scalable platform, increasing data resilience and significantly reducing Total Cost of Ownership.

Declan Sharpe, iomart’s UK Sales Director, said: “Cohesity enables us to offer highly differentiated services to customers who are struggling with the challenge of mass data fragmentation in the face of greater regulation. Not only does it help remove data silos and reduce the time and costs associated with complex data management, it gives customers a sandbox environment to test new software releases and features, as well as enabling them to derive unparalleled insights from their untapped data through its inbuilt analytics engine.”

iomart will offer Cohesity as a shared service for smaller businesses and as a dedicated service for large enterprises. The evolutionary approach to data management will allow customers to gradually change the way they use data, mitigating any risk and interruption to the business during a more dramatic shift to the cloud. Over time, and at vastly reduced cost, modern hyperconverged processes can be employed to retire old silos, give greater business insight and real-time visibility into customer data, and recover any file, Virtual Machine (VM) or even hundreds of VMs instantaneously with Cohesity instant recovery.

Declan Sharpe added: “Cohesity fits into our commitment to deliver truly hybrid solutions to our customers. Not only can it protect and maintain local storage and data requirements at the edge, it can also seamlessly extend to Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google Cloud without requiring separate cloud gateways. Customers can also choose to replicate their protected data into iomart’s business continuity cloud for near instant Disaster Recovery as a Service.”

Officially released today, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 includes innovative functionality that allows customers to put their VM data protection on auto-pilot and considerably simplify data protection management

Sparks, NV – December 03, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO, Inc., a fast-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company, announced today the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1. This latest version of the software revolutionizes the way businesses manage their data protection routines by reducing manual work to a minimum. In addition, v8.1 provides for universal recovery of any application objects.

Policy-Based Data Protection
Managing a large VMware, Hyper-V, or AWS infrastructure is a challenging task. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 eases the burden by introducing Policy-Based Data Protection. This innovative functionality lets customers create backup, replication, and backup copy policies to fully automate data protection processes.

A policy can be based on VM name, size, location, power state, tag, or a combination of multiple parameters. Once set up, policies regularly scan your entire infrastructure for VMs that match their criteria and protect the VMs automatically. This way, all important VMs and EC2 instances are protected with little to no manual input required.

Universal Object Recovery
To further improve data recovery processes, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has introduced Universal Object Recovery, which enables customers to recover any application objects back to source, to a custom location, or even to a physical server.

The Universal Object Recovery functionality is indispensable when it comes to saving time and resources on restoration. Customers can recover individual items from any file system or application by mounting VM disks from backups to a target recovery location, without needing to restore the entire VM first.

“We are expanding our product’s functionality to further improve reliability, flexibility, and ease of use,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “Policy-Based Data Protection in v8.1 is yet another significant step in this direction. By fully automating core data protection tasks, NAKIVO Backup & Replication minimizes the possibility of human error and helps customers gain more confidence in their data protection strategies.”

The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last decade has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many startups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer. Some of these companies are pure enablers, while others combine enablement functions with direct-to-market services. Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the cloud backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):
1/ Pure Enabler
2/ Enabler & Service Provider – Channel or Direct
3/ Service Provider – Channel Only
4/ Service Provider – Channel and Direct
5/ Service Provider – Direct Only (For complete list of companies, see our top monthly ranking list)

Based on a number of factors, such as technology, features, easy of use, dedication to MSPs, channel, revenue structure, reputation, support, price entry point, value, and corporate culture of the companies, we have summarized our rankings.

The companies are categorized in their respective columns. If we have made an error in the category or companies have changed their business plan and as a result need to be categorized in a different column, please let us know.

More than 60 storage and data clouds are securely integrated into enterprise ecosystems, allowing users to securely collaborate in real-time editions of document formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint & OneNote

LONDON, UK – 29th November 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Storage Made Easy® (SME) announced that it has integrated Microsoft Office Online to bring a valuable new feature to its File Fabric solution to help teams to work together in a variety of ways, from real-time collaborative editing to group task management.

Microsoft Office Online is an online office suite offered by Microsoft, which allows users to create and edit Microsoft Office documents using just their web browser. It supports editing of document formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. The MS Office Online integration also provides both a single-user edit mode, as well as a multi-user real time collaboration edit mode.

Integrating with the File Fabric means hosted File Fabric users can now edit files stored in Amazon S3, Cloudian, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage or any of the 60+ storage and data clouds supported, directly in the SME File Fabric using Microsoft Office Online.

Additionally any files edited using the integration can be transparently encrypted using FIPS certified encryption whilst being pro-actively monitored, and audited for compliance purposes.

The File Fabric unifies corporate on-cloud and on-premises storage into a single gloal file interface making it easier and more secure for end users to access data from desktops and mobile devices. Shared folders, ultra secure file sharing, synchronization and collaboration are available through a full suite of desktop, mobile and web applications across the gamut of the unified corporate storage. Additionally, corporate IT gains governance and compliance controls that work from a single point across their corporate data estate.

Jim Liddle CEO said, “Microsoft Office is the de facto standard of editing documents for many companies. With the Office online integration, company users can now open and edit files from many different file stores using Office apps like Word directly from their web browser. This brings an immense amount of productivity to their existing storage ecosystems.”

About Storage Made Easy (SME)
Storage Made Easy provides a multi-cloud data management and data protection product called the Enterprise File Fabric™ that unifies on-premises and on-cloud company storage assets in addition to standalone products that bridge desktop and cloud, such as operating system native cloud drives and cloud explorer applications.

The File Fabric provides cloud-like economics across a company’s storage portfolio, unlocking the benefits and cost-efficiency of its data assets whilst providing strict controls and governance for legislative compliance and security concerns such as ransomware attacks. Existing site-based storage infrastructures can be transformed into an on-premises private cloud, delivering a storage-as-a- service model to the company. Local storage can be connected to public clouds, expertly managed by the File Fabric as a unified hybrid cloud storage platform.

The File Fabric solution offers a “blanket” that companies can privately apply to wrap around all their data: on-premises, within a public cloud, or on a third party software vendors’ cloud (SharePoint or Salesforce for example). Customers can use the File Fabric for security, encryption and control with a focus on compliance regimes such as GDPR, HIPAA, FERPA and GBLA.

Customers include one of the world’s largest social media companies, and also one of the largest global retailers, in addition to global internet service providers, universities and international government and governmental bodies.

The company is backed by one of the largest alternative asset managers in addition to entrepreneurs in the London market insurance industry, who have previously successfully sold their company to a listed peer.

Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera LTD.
