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.

Cloud Backup Expert Tips: What to Ask Now That Salesforce Has Retired Its Data Recovery Service

As of July 31, 2020, Salesforce is no longer offering their Data Recovery service. This means that Salesforce customers no longer have a ‘last resort’ in the event of data loss or corruption.

Why did Salesforce make this change?
According to Salesforce, “Customer Trust is our number one priority. The data recovery process does not meet our high standards for customer experience due to the length of time and reliability of the process. This process takes a minimum of 6 – 8 weeks to complete and we cannot guarantee 100% data recovery. Due to these issues, we are no longer offering this service as of July 31, 2020.”

Why does this matter?
If you’re like most Salesforce stakeholders, you may assume, falsely, that your SaaS data is protected simply because it’s in the cloud. Most SaaS apps, like Salesforce, require shared responsibility for keeping data safe. The platforms provide reliability and security controls, but customers are responsible for the errors and corruption they create.

Salesforce recommends partner backup solution

For many, the data recovery service retirement is an opportunity to reassess their current cloud data protection strategy. According to our recent survey, 88% of companies are lacking a comprehensive backup and recovery solution, which may be especially risky with many companies increasing their remote workforce. Furthermore, 69% say their company may be at significant risk of user-inflicted data loss, most commonly caused by Human Error.

What Can You Do Next? Ask Yourself These Questions:
1. Have you defined your recovery point objective to determine how much data are you willing to lose? If you’re not backing up your data at least daily, or better yet leveraging high frequency backups, you have no way to recover any data that has changed since your last backup. In many cases, this could be weeks or months of data that is gone forever.

2. Have you defined your recovery time objective to determine how long you can afford to be without your data? With a cloud data protection platform, time to recovery can be minutes vs. days or weeks with out-of-the-box solutions. In fact, many organizations have shared stories about it taking over a month to recover their data with out-of-the-box solutions.

3. Can you recover your data from every point in time, whether that’s yesterday or six months ago…in a way that allows you to put it back together exactly like it was before the problem occurred? Full backups have to be done every single day. The ability to quickly compare data to historical data is the only way to know what needs to be a recovered.

4. Is your backup solution secure? You should be relying on a solution that is reputable, has passed Salesforce security reviews, and has built-in platform security features that meet enterprise needs. A few controls that should be included are Role-based Access Controls (RBAC) to partition backup services and control who has access to them, IP whitelisting for controlling domain access, two-factor authentication to help ensure only authorized users have access, and single-sign-on.

5. Can you count on your data backup and recovery solution when you need it most? You deserve automated and dynamic backups, proactive monitoring, and world-class support help to ensure backup and recovery are as stress free as possible. You don’t want to have to configure your backup to specific fields and objects.

6. What happens when your Salesforce data is temporarily unavailable? It’s imperative that companies have access to data through a user-friendly, controlled user interface outside of Salesforce. Backing the data up to an S3 server is not the answer. Yes, it’s accessible outside of Salesforce…but the number of people who will have access will be very limited, and providing access to those who might need the data poses a major security risk.

How did you do?
If you’re not satisfied with your answers to the above questions, consider a cloud data protection platform like OwnBackup that proactively prevents you from losing access to mission-critical Salesforce data, so you never have to worry about data loss disrupting your business—or your life.

Move at the speed of innovation without risking access to the SaaS data driving your business forward.

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Testing Finds 86% Cost Reduction Without Compromising Performance

WALTHAM, Mass. – July 31, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — A new technical validation report by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading independent analyst firm, found that Actifio, the pioneer of multi-cloud copy data management, reduced backup and disaster recovery (DR) infrastructure costs by 86 percent when protecting SAP HANA workloads leveraging Google Cloud Platform (GCP) object storage compared with legacy backup approaches using high-performance block storage. Even with the dramatic cost savings, ESG found the same high levels of performance from a DR copy running off Google Nearline object storage as their production instances running on Google Persistent disk block storage.

ESG evaluated Actifio software backing up and recovering a 529GB SAP HANA in-memory database from GCP region (West) to GCP East using Google Nearline object storage.

The study’s author, ESG Senior Validation Analyst Tony Palmer, summarized some of the key findings: “Cloud object storage is typically 10x inexpensive than the cloud SSD/flash block storage. Actifio’s ability to recover SAP HANA database in just minutes from cloud object storage, while delivering the I/O performance of an SSD/flash block storage is very unique in the industry and reduces cloud infrastructure costs by more than 80% for enterprises. We found Actifio’s user interface to set-up backup & replication SLAs, and perform rapid recoveries to be very simple and easy to use.”

Actifio’s incremental-forever data capture minimizes the required compute, bandwidth, and storage to reduce costs. Its deep integration with SAP HANA databases and all other enterprise databases ensures consistent data capture and recovery on GCP.

ESG’s Palmer continued, “We looked further into the analysis to identify some of the [Actifio] soft benefits, which include self-service provisioning, compliance-driven automated data masking, role-based access controls, and real-time updates from the database to DevOps copies. Combined, these benefits help an organization to be more agile, deliver solutions to market faster, and tighten recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTO) since the DR copies are always current.”

ESG research shows 52 percent of IT and data protection professionals cite wasted IT budget as a major risk they are currently facing. Actifio’s ability to reduce the cost of backup and DR infrastructure by leveraging GCP Cloud Object Storage compared with traditional SSD storage can reduce costs by 86 percent – freeing up budget to help IT teams thrive.

The validation testing confirmed:

  • Actifio’s ease-of-use to protect SAP HANA databases
  • Actifio’s ability to support GCP Nearline object storage for DR copies with post-recovery performance that is equivalent to the production environment
  • Automated provisioning of many multi-TB SAP HANA test environments for DevOps within minutes in the cloud

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 30, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis SCSVets, an Arizona-based nonprofit dedicated to providing post-military IT job training and certification to under and unemployed veterans, as well as military spouses and transitioning service members, is slated to graduate at least 100 students by the end of 2020.

At zero out-of-pocket cost to participants, the program is making a real impact on individual lives, as well as the larger economy. Based on the average post-graduation salary of its participants, Acronis SCSVets will help bring up to $1.26 million in yearly tax revenue and social services savings to the economy via its 2020 graduates alone. In the words of one of those graduates, Russell Corathers, “Acronis SCSVets helped me create a solid foundation from which I built additional skills for a bright career, rather than a dead-end job.”


Video: SCSVets Graduation: Cyber Squad Alpha

The program, which is helping close the gap between Arizona’s nearly 14,000 open cybersecurity positions and the lack of qualified professionals available to fill them, has maintained its high-touch training approach, even as operations turned virtual due to COVID-19.

The cohorts currently moving through the program, as well as those in the pipeline and the first graduates from May, are a highly diverse group. In fact, more than 45% of Acronis SCSVets participants identify as a racial or ethnic minority. In the coming months, the nonprofit will further diversify its physical reach beyond Phoenix with a new cohort in Tucson.

This year, Acronis SCSVets also became one of a select few training programs designated as a nationally-approved Department of Defense SkillBridge provider. Through SkillBridge, separating service members can be granted up to 180 days of permissive duty to train full-time with Acronis SCSVets. During this time, they are provided the invaluable opportunity to prepare for a self-sustaining civilian career in cyber. All branches of the military are eligible.

Technical capabilities, product roadmap, execution and ability to innovate drive Panzura’s highly rated recognition

CAMPBELL, CA – July 30, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Panzura, creator of the fastest global cloud file system on the planet, was today named a ‘market leader and outperformer’ in file-based cloud storage and ‘challenger and fast mover’ in unstructured data management by Gigaom.

The two reports recognizing Panzura for its market leadership are:

  • “Gigaom Radar for File-Based Cloud Storage” – https://gigaom.com/report/gigaom-radar-for-file-based-cloud-storage/
  • “Gigaom Radar for Unstructured Data Management” – https://gigaom.com/report/gigaom-radar-for-unstructured-data-management/

Gigaom Radar for File-Based Cloud Storage
In this inaugural report authored by Analyst Enrico Signoretti, Panzura receives the highest combined scores for Key Criteria and Evaluation metrics and is noted as excelling in:

  • Maturity – the maturity and solidity of the product, user acceptance, and overall ecosystem sustainability.
  • Innovation – differentiation, innovative aspects of the product and overall vendor approach to the market.
  • Feature play – a focused solution with differentiating features and technical product aspects.

“Now more than ever, with hybrid cloud infrastructures and distributed organizations across the world, teams need the ability to access data from everywhere, seamlessly,” said Signoretti. “Panzura Freedom stands out for its tremendous capability to simplify teamwork among distributed team members who share files across different clouds and on-premises locations across the globe while keeping data under control.”

Panzura Freedom is the only cloud file services solution to offer real-time, cloud-based file operations that, when combined with military-grade security, enables remote team members to work on the same unstructured data sets, or even the same files, at the same time — without overwriting each other or making multiple data copies. Its immutable data architecture keeps cloud-based data secured and inherently protected from cyber-attacks. Built-in active archive, enterprise-grade backup, and disaster recovery maximize enterprise up-time and replace services typically provided by a third party — delivering measurable operational efficiencies and savings.

“Distributed teams need fast access to shared data, regardless of where they work,” said Jill Stelfox, chairman and CEO of Panzura. ”However, the majority of enterprises rely on remote data centers for data storage, which undercuts employee productivity and ability to work from home. The longer this continues, the more IT stifles business user productivity and competitiveness, rather than driving it. We set out to solve the acute data access, control and collaboration issues that occur when enterprises move data files to the cloud and service globally distributed teams by creating the fastest cloud file service on the planet.”

Gigaom Radar for Unstructured Data Management
Immense business value is possible when turning unused data into something transformative to business outcomes. This report highlights the increasing importance for organizations to invest in solutions capable of delivering storage at scale, and improving data searchability. Leveraging data stored in the system can minimize costs and increase control over critical security and compliance aspects.

Panzura’s Vizion.ai Machine Learning-based (ML) data analytics is rated a challenger and fast mover that, when combined with Panzura Freedom (and other filers), enables enterprise customers to search and audit their entire cloud file storage in seconds. This allows users to take control of the data and exploit hidden value quickly.

“We have come to a point where storing data safely and for a long time brings little benefit to an organization, and in fact can become a liability,” said Signoretti. “With the right processes and tools, organizations can turn data from a liability to an asset with unstructured data analytics solutions like Vizion.ai. Organizations can more readily understand what data is stored in the storage systems, no matter how complex and dispersed it is, mitigate risk and then exploit opportunities.”

The report further highlights other key Vizion.ai functionalities, including:

  • Scalability, ease of use, and efficient unstructured data management capabilities
  • Rapid deployment, ease of expansion through a series of applications available in the marketplace
  • Solid support for ElasticSearch and Kibana
  • A high variety of use cases and possibilities

Trusted by enterprises like Datatility, Gensler, Goop, Barton Willmore and phoenixNAP, the cloud management dashboard provides a complete view of the entire cloud network, with powerful search and auditing capabilities, security event detection and prevention, and data management compliance with a one-click ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) stack deployment.

About Panzura
Panzura is the fastest global cloud file system on the planet and the leader in collaborative multi-cloud productivity and data management for global enterprises. It manages hundreds of petabytes of data in the cloud for companies in the healthcare, financial services, media and entertainment, gaming, and architectural, engineering and construction industries as well as government agencies.

Customer Personal Data Exposed in 80% of Breaches Analyzed; AI and Automation Significantly Reduce Costs

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 29, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM Security (NYSE: IBM) announced today the results of a global study examining the financial impact of data breaches, revealing that these incidents cost companies studied $3.86 million per breach on average, and that compromised employee accounts were the most expensive root cause. Based on in-depth analysis of data breaches experienced by over 500 organizations worldwide, 80% of these incidents resulted in the exposure of customers’ personally identifiable information (PII). Out of all types of data exposed in these breaches, customer PII was also the costliest to businesses studied.

As companies are increasingly accessing sensitive data via new remote work and cloud-based business operations, the report sheds light on the financial losses that organizations can suffer if this data is compromised. A separate IBM study found that over half of surveyed employees new to working from home due to the pandemic have not been provided with new guidelines on how to handle customer PII, despite the changing risk models associated with this shift.

Sponsored by IBM Security and conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the 2020 Cost of a Data Breach Report is based on in-depth interviews with more than 3,200 security professional in organizations that suffered a data breach over the past year.1 Some of the top findings from this year’s report include:

  • Smart Tech Slashes Breach Costs in Half: Companies studied who had fully deployed security automation technologies (which leverage AI, analytics and automated orchestration to identify and respond to security events) experienced less than half the data breach costs compared to those who didn’t have these tools deployed – $2.45 million vs. $6.03 million on average.
  • Paying a Premium for Compromised Credentials: In incidents where attackers accessed corporate networks through the use of stolen or compromised credentials, studied businesses saw nearly $1 million higher data breach costs compared to the global average – reaching $4.77 million per data breach. Exploiting third-party vulnerabilities was the second costliest root cause of malicious breaches ($4.5 million) for this group.
  • Mega Breach2 Costs Soar by the Millions: Breaches wherein over 50 million records were compromised saw costs jump to $392 million from $388 million the previous year. Breaches where 40 to 50 million records were exposed cost studied companies $364 million on average, a cost increase of $19 million compared to the 2019 report.
  • Nation State Attacks – The Most Damaging Breaches: Data breaches believed to originate from nation state attacks were the costliest, compared to other threat actors examined in the report. State-sponsored attacks averaged $4.43 million in data breach costs, surpassing both financially motivated cybercriminals and hacktivists.

“When it comes to businesses’ ability to mitigate the impact of a data breach, we’re beginning to see a clear advantage held by companies that have invested in automated technologies,” said Wendi Whitmore, Vice President, IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence. “At a time when businesses are expanding their digital footprint at an accelerated pace and the security industry’s talent shortage persists, teams can be overwhelmed securing more devices, systems and data. Security automation can help resolve this burden, not only supporting a faster breach response but a more cost-efficient one as well.”

Employee Credentials and Misconfigured Clouds ­– Attackers’ Entry Point of Choice
Stolen or compromised credentials and cloud misconfigurations were the most common causes of a malicious breach for companies in the report, representing nearly 40% of malicious incidents. With over 8.5 billion records exposed in 2019, and attackers using previously exposed emails and passwords in one out of five breaches studied, businesses should rethink their security strategy via the adoption of a zero-trust approach – reexamining how they authenticate users and the extent of access users are granted.

Similarly, companies’ struggle with security complexity – a top breach cost factor – is likely contributing to cloud misconfigurations becoming a growing security challenge. The 2020 report revealed that attackers used cloud misconfigurations to breach networks nearly 20% of the time, increasing breach costs by more than half a million dollars to $4.41 million on average – making it the third most expensive initial infection vector examined in the report.

State Sponsored Attacks Strike Heaviest
Despite representing just 13% of malicious breaches studied, state-sponsored threat actors were the most damaging type of adversary according to the 2020 report, suggesting that financially motivated attacks (53%) don’t necessarily translate into higher financial losses for businesses. The highly tactical nature, longevity and stealth maneuvers of state-backed attacks, as well as the high value data targeted, often result in a more extensive compromise of victim environments, increasing breach costs to an average of $4.43 million.

In fact, the respondents in the Middle East, a region that historically experiences a higher proportion of state-sponsored attacks compared to other parts of the world3, saw over 9% yearly rise in their average breach cost, incurring the second highest average breach cost ($6.52 million) amongst the 17 regions studied. Similarly, businesses studied in the energy sector, one of the most frequently targeted industries by nation states, experienced a 14% increase in breach costs year over year, averaging $6.39 million.

Advanced Security Technologies Prove Smart for Business
The report highlights the growing divide in breach costs between businesses implementing advanced security technologies and those lagging behind, revealing a cost-saving difference of $3.58 million for studied companies with fully deployed security automation versus those that have yet to deploy this type of technology. The cost gap has grown by $2 million, from a difference of $1.55 million in 2018.

Companies in the study with fully deployed security automation also reported a significantly shorter response time to breaches, another key factor shown to reduce breach costs in the analysis. The report found that AI, machine learning, analytics and other forms of security automation enabled companies to respond to breaches over 27% faster on average, than companies that have yet to deploy security automation – the latter of which require on average 74 additional days to identify and contain a breach.

Incident response (IR) preparedness also continues to heavily influence the financial aftermath of a breach. According to the report, companies with neither an IR team nor testing of IR plans experience $5.29 million in average breach costs, whereas companies that have both an IR team and use tabletop exercises or simulations to test IR plans experience $2 million less in breach costs – reaffirming that preparedness and readiness yield a significant ROI in cybersecurity.

Some additional findings from this year’s report include:

  • Remote Work Risk Will Have a Cost: With hybrid work models creating less controlled environments, the report found that 70% of companies studied that adopted telework amid the pandemic expect it will exacerbate data breach costs.
  • CISOs Faulted for Breaches, Despite Limited Decision-Making Power: Forty-six percent of respondents said the CISO/CSO is ultimately held responsible for the breach, despite only 27% stating the CISO/CSO is the security policy and technology decision-maker. The report found that appointing a CISO was associated with $145,000 cost savings versus the average cost of a breach.
  • Majority of Cyber Insured Businesses Use Claims for Third Party Fees: The report found that breaches at studied organizations with cyber insurance cost on average nearly $200,000 less than the global average of $3.86 million. In fact, of these organizations that used their cyber insurance, 51% applied it to cover third-party consulting fees and legal services, while 36% of organizations used it for victim restitution costs. Only 10% used claims to cover the cost of ransomware or extortion.
  • Regional & Industry Insights: While studied companies in the U.S. continued to experience the highest data breach costs in the world, at $8.64 million on average, those studied in Scandinavia experienced the biggest year over year increase in breach costs, observing a nearly 13% rise. Responding healthcare companies continued to incur the highest average breach costs at $7.13 million — an over 10% increase compared to the 2019 study.

About the Study
The annual Cost of a Data Breach Report is based on in-depth analysis of real-world data breaches experienced by over 500 organizations worldwide taking place between August 2019 and April 2020, taking into account hundreds of cost factors including legal, regulatory and technical activities to loss of brand equity, customers, and employee productivity.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – July 29, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™, today announced an annual recurring revenue (ARR) increase of 20 percent year-over-year (YoY) for Q2’20 – the biggest second quarter in the company’s 14-year history. In addition, Veeam reported its largest ever quarter for total bookings of its fastest growing product, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, with an 89 percent YoY increase and a 75 percent YoY gain in overall subscription bookings. As further testament to Veeam’s continued performance, Gartner recently published its 2019 Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide research, and with sustained multiyear revenue gains, Veeam has increased in market share to become the third largest provider of backup and recovery software.[i]

“As employees are transitioning to the new ‘work from home’ environment, data protection and availability are now more important than ever,” said Bill Largent, CEO at Veeam. “Just as employers must protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees, they must also have solid business continuity plans in place and protect the most important asset of their organization – their data. During Q2’20, Veeam continued to accelerate its business and growth trajectory with our broad ecosystem of partners, and we have maintained a customer-first ethos. Our innovation, combined with our company momentum, will make 2020 a historic and significant year for Veeam and our partners.”

A major highlight of Q2 was VeeamON 2020, the world’s premier online Data Management event. Initially planned as a physical event in Las Vegas, it transitioned to a two-day online event due to the current pandemic. With close to 30,000 registrants from 148 countries, Veeam delivered a true interactive digital experience for partners and customers with more than 40 breakout sessions, product demos and advanced configurations of Veeam products, and keynotes from Veeam executives and industry speakers from IBM, Microsoft, NetApp, VMware, Pure Storage and IDC. In addition to unveiling Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) v3, Veeam provided a unique preview of what the company is planning for upcoming product releases, including the first sneak-peek of Veeam Availability Suite v11, as well as Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v5.

“Veeam kicked off 2020 with news of our acquisition by Insight Partners at a valuation of approximately $5 billion, followed by our biggest product launch ever – Veeam Availability Suite (VAS) v10, the industry’s most robust solution for complete data management and protection for hybrid-cloud environments. Both announcements were major game-changing milestones for Veeam and the tech industry,” said Danny Allan, CTO and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “With a half-dozen product releases in 2020 already, we’re planning about a dozen total, including Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v5 later this year. The demand for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 has exploded due in part to the new work from home environment, fueling the best quarter to date for that product. Our recent and upcoming product releases provide significant benefits to our customers, further differentiate us from the competition, and provide a strong path forward for growth.”

Customers Can Leverage Multiple Expansion Options with Flexible 60-bay and 90-bay Systems Available in Single-Node, Dual-Node, SBB, or JBOD Configurations

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 27, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, announced an extension of its market-proven ultra-dense storage solutions with new 60-bay and 90-bay solutions. These best-in-class high-capacity storage and expansion systems are optimized for cloud-scale storage implementations as well as HPC storage applications.

This new top-loading architecture delivers the improved flexibility, modularity, and serviceability that customers need. Both 60-bay and 90-bay systems are available in single-node and dual-node configurations, where the drives evenly split between each node. Also, the drives can be in a storage bridge bay (SBB) configuration for high availability, in which both nodes have access to all the drives, and one node backs up the other in case of a failure. With a modular, tool-less design, all key onboard systems – hot-swap server nodes, expanders, fan modules, power supplies, and drives – are fully optimized for easy serviceability by a single technician.

“Anticipating changing market dynamics and high growth in software-defined, cloud-based storage, Supermicro can help data centers to rapidly modernize their equipment to leverage flexible architectures, tool-less design modularity, and simple expansion capabilities,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our new high-capacity storage systems continue Supermicro’s focus on resource-saving and deliver industry-leading capacity per watt for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and lower total cost to the environment (TCE).”

Supermicro’s new high-capacity top-loading systems are optimized for enterprise environments, and support scale-up and scale-out architectures. These 4U systems feature 60x or 90x hot-swap 2.5″/3.5″ SAS3/SATA3 bays plus 2x onboard PCI-E M.2 slots and 2x internal slim SATA SSD slots. The single-node system also supports 2x rear hot-swap 2.5″ bays for OS mirroring and optional 4x NVMe U.2 bays for fast caching. At maximum configuration, the system supports 1,440 terabytes of cost-optimized storage. The single- and dual-node systems use 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors in a dual-socket configuration with 16x DIMM slots per server node.

Supermicro Storage Summit
Supermicro is launching this product line in conjunction with the first Supermicro Storage Summit, which will highlight leadership technology and solutions for cloud-based storage. The Supermicro Storage Summit will take place in North America/EMEA on July 28, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. PDT, and on July 29, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. GMT+8 Asia-Pacific.

New Patent Covers Nasuni’s UniFS® Cloud File System, Virtual Edge Appliances, Management Console and Orchestration Center

BOSTON, MA – July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nasuni®, a leading provider of cloud file services, today announced that the company has received U.S. Patent No. 10,713,119 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), titled “Method and system for interfacing to cloud storage.” The comprehensive system patent – which describes the Nasuni hub and spoke file services platform – includes 20 claims and derives from Nasuni’s original innovations in cloud file storage dating from 2009.

With the world’s only cloud-native global file system at its heart, Nasuni delivers a file services platform built for the cloud that combines the performance of local file servers with the scalability and durability of cloud storage, all at about half the cost of traditional file infrastructures. Users can migrate NAS silos to the cloud storage of their choice for on-demand capacity expansion, built-in backup, instant disaster recovery, multi-site file sharing and a system that can span continents.

The new patent covers Nasuni’s enterprise storage-as-a-service system, which includes the following capabilities:

  • The management console enables enterprises to provision and manage the scalable UniFS® file system across one or multiple clouds.
  • The platform thinly provisions and intelligently caches the most frequently used files either in a local appliance or a virtual appliance in a nearby cloud. As a result, it continuously ensures that the most recent versions of files are available to end-users with strong performance.

To date, Nasuni has received 14 U.S. patents for innovations associated with Nasuni Cloud Files Services. Additional patents are pending.

“This patent provides broad coverage for our file services platform and validates the uniqueness of our solution,” said David Shaw, chief science officer at Nasuni. “No other company can provide a file system for the cloud with all the benefits of scalability, robustness and access of the cloud in a service that also delivers high performance.”

Nasuni’s technology works with common file-based forms of unstructured data and supports industry standards, including SMB (CIFS) and NFS file sharing protocols, as well as Active Directory and LDAP authentication. These include the documents, spreadsheets and presentations omnipresent in business plus industry-specific files such as software code, CAD and video used in the architecture, engineering, media and manufacturing industries.

Nasuni also announced the latest version of its File Services platform, introducing new capabilities to deliver enhanced remote work, simplified cloud migration and more modern data protection.

Details about the new release can be found here – https://www.nasuni.com/news/pr-nasuni-8-8-launch/

About Nasuni

Purpose-built for ransomware and cloud with the industry’s most scalable platform

SANTA CLARA, CA – July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veritas Technologies, a global leader in data protection and availability, introduced new innovations to its Enterprise Data Services Platform (EDSP) to help customers reduce risk, optimize cost, strengthen ransomware resiliency, and manage multi-cloud environments at scale. With the launch of NetBackup™ 8.3, Veritas further empowers enterprise customers by improving the resiliency of their applications and infrastructure regardless of the context. By extending the core of EDSP— NetBackup—to include the Veritas Resiliency Platform (VRP) and CloudPoint, Veritas delivers a single platform with enterprise resiliency features and functionality to protect and recover data wherever it resides.

As global enterprises accelerate digital transformation to support a remote workforce at scale and seek to reduce costs in the face of economic headwinds, IT resiliency and efficiency are more critical than ever. With the innovations in NetBackup 8.3, organizations can dramatically reduce the risk and impact of system downtime, avoid disparate workload-specific point products and realize significant cost savings by standardizing on a single platform across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

“Scale, flexibility and simplicity are continuing to drive up cloud adoption,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “While the benefits of these multi-cloud strategies are well established, they also bring data protection challenges as multiple point products can increase risk and operational complexity. Businesses can simplify the backup and recovery challenge by standardizing on a single platform.”

NetBackup software’s latest innovations bring many new benefits to enterprise customers, including:

Strengthened ransomware resiliency with security, protection, and recovery improvements

  • Security and protection improvements
    • Expanded ransomware protection with hardened NetBackup appliances and vendor-agnostic immutability for storage utilizing NetBackup OpenStorage Technology (OST)
    • Seamless, secure infrastructure supporting 2048-bit encryption and integration with third party key management systems (EKMS) giving customers choice
    • Role-based access control (RBAC) enhancements that provide greater flexibility and simplify role management
  • Recovery improvements
    • Added resiliency through granular recovery of virtual machines with near-zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and efficient Recovery Time Objective (RTO) thanks to Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
    • Orchestrated rehearsals with zero production impact to verify the efficiency and effectiveness of recovery procedures

Cloud-native data protection for all leading platforms

  • Robust cloud-native protection for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud with full Veritas CloudPoint integration
  • Expanded cloud-to-anywhere—including Azure Stack to Azure Stack and Azure region-to-region—with push button orchestrated disaster recovery using full Veritas Resiliency Platform integration
  • Seamless workload and data portability in hybrid and multi-cloud, with both to-the-cloud and between-cloud storage tiers

Expanded and simplified single platform for resiliency across your environment

  • Elimination of siloed management tools with the expansion of EDSP to now include cloud protection, workload migration and disaster recovery across on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments
  • Maximized storage efficiency, reduced bandwidth requirements, and consolidated infrastructure costs with direct-to-cloud tiering, enabling management of data in multiple buckets, storage tiers, and cloud environments from a single node with NetBackup CloudCatalyst
  • Storage cost optimization with integrated management and reporting, including expanded coverage for workloads, policy and storage management, and enhanced infrastructure visibility from Veritas APTARE™ IT Analytics

Enhanced workload support featuring substantial performance improvements and increased operational simplicity

  • 50x faster discovery for VMware vCenter and vCloud, reducing discovery time from hours to minutes for large environments
  • 25% faster dynamic NAS data protection via auto-discovery of resources and load balancing with the ability to restore data anywhere on any NetBackup target, removing vendor lock-in
  • Total control of discovery, backup, restore, and automation at scale for Microsoft SQL, Oracle, and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) to simplify management

Details on all the benefits that Veritas is delivering in the latest release of NetBackup can be found here — https://www.veritas.com/protection/netbackup

Veritas was recently named a Leader, for the 15th time, in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions1. Veritas believes Gartner’s recognition validates its ongoing commitment to innovation across all of our customer environments.

“When it comes to fashion, timing is everything, so downtime and data loss simply aren’t options for Peerless. We have hundreds of virtual machines and tens of terabytes of data in the cloud, all of which need to be protected,” said Laura Ghinda, tech lead, Peerless Clothing. “Veritas allows us to manage our data from a single platform, bringing proven enterprise-class features and functionality to protect our data no matter where it lives. And robust native protection for cloud data, coupled with faster discovery for VMs, makes NetBackup 8.3 an exciting proposition for us. The holistic approach to data management, from core, to edge, to cloud, means that we can drive down data duplication, making our backup more cost effective, as well as simpler.”

“VMware has rapidly expanded our capabilities from compute virtualization to full-stack hyper-converged infrastructure across clouds, providing our customers’ consistent infrastructure and operations with VMware Cloud Foundation™,” said Lee Caswell, vice president of marketing at VMware. “NetBackup 8.3 demonstrates its value by providing flexible recovery and enhanced protection for VMware at scale.”

“Veritas is continuing to innovate on its Enterprise Data Services Platform with the launch of the latest version of NetBackup. We’re extending enterprise-grade data protection and the most robust set of recovery options to every corner of our customers’ IT environments—from on-premises physical to virtual, to cloud and even to containers,” said Deepak Mohan, executive vice president, Products Organization at Veritas. “Our customers’ environments are getting more complex with more applications, more workloads, more data, more clouds and more threats. NetBackup 8.3 accelerates our strategy to abstract IT complexity and simplify data management with the Enterprise Data Services Platform with best in industry scale and reliability.”

Box brings intelligence to data classification to secure content in the cloud at scale

REDWOOD CITY, CA – July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), a leader in cloud content management, today announced the addition of intelligent, automated classification to Box Shield, the company’s advanced security solution for protecting content in the cloud. Leveraging advanced machine learning, Shield can now automatically scan files and classify them based on their content, helping businesses detect and secure sensitive data without getting in the way of work.

“The sudden shift to remote work has surfaced new security challenges for businesses, making it more critical than ever to keep sensitive data from getting into the wrong hands,” said Varun Parmar, Chief Product Officer at Box. “In June alone, Box Shield helped customers protect their content by blocking shared link access to classified files over eight million times and prevented close to a million downloads of classified files. Using advancements in machine learning to automatically apply classification labels as files are uploaded or edited extends Box Shield’s ability to enable secure remote work from anywhere. This allows IT and security teams to configure and enforce policies across the enterprise at a new level of scale that would be impossible to tackle manually.”

Intelligent automated classification in Box Shield
Box Shield, the fastest growing new product in the company’s history, helps prevent data leakage and proactively identifies potential insider threats or compromised accounts. Some of the world’s most security-conscious and highly regulated organizations like NASA and Sierra Oncology are using Box Shield to secure their data in the cloud.

“Data integrity and data security are paramount to life sciences companies. Box Shield has been a powerful solution that helps us protect our information through enforcement of data policies across our organization,” said Mike Engels, Executive Director of Information Services at Sierra Oncology. “Shield’s new automated classification capability will help us become even more efficient in delivering a positive experience for our staff while at the same time helping to maintain data integrity and data security.”

Using advanced machine learning and data leakage prevention capabilities, this new feature scans files in real-time when they’re uploaded, updated, moved, or copied to specified folders, and automatically classifies them based on admin-defined policies. This enables customers to scale data classification and enforce policies across the enterprise, in order to reduce risk and meet compliance standards such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and GDPR.

With intelligent automated classification in Box Shield, customers will be able to:

  • Automatically identify multiple personally identifiable information types within files, including social security numbers, driver’s licenses, International Bank Account Number (IBAN) codes, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9/ICD-10) codes, and more
  • Automatically identify custom terms and phrases within files – for example: “Box Confidential”, “Internal use only”, and “NDA required”
  • Easily create policies that apply the appropriate classification label based on desired logic – including and/or conditions and unique counts
  • Once files are classified appropriately, Shield can help prevent data leakage through a combination of access controls already in use by Shield customers today, such as shared link, external collaboration, and download restrictions. The new feature supports the most common unstructured file types in Box, including documents, spreadsheets, PDF, Box Notes, and more.

“Remote work has accelerated cloud adoption as businesses seek to enable a distributed workforce and serve their customers digitally,” said Lakshmi Hanspal, CISO at Box. “This requires a completely new approach to security and privacy. As more work is done outside office boundaries on both managed and personal devices it is critical to have one source of truth for all of your data in order to meet new regulatory and compliance standards without slowing down business.”

The new automated classification feature comes on the heels of a series of security enhancements Box announced this year. In April, Box added malware detection to Box Shield, which automatically labels files as malicious and restricts downloads and local editing to prevent the spread to more users and devices. A month later, Box announced an improved Device Trust, allowing companies to specify ownership and security requirements on both personal and company-owned devices so users can easily and securely access content in Box. Automated classification augments the existing option for Box customers to classify files via API, through Box’s security partners.

Availability
The new Box Shield automated classification capabilities will begin to be available today and will roll out to eligible customers over the next month. To learn more, please see our blog post here and join us at the launch webinar on August 6.

(Download Financial Tables)

Tinton Falls, N.J. – July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Commvault [NASDAQ: CVLT] today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“I could not be prouder of the team. Our first quarter results are validation that our streamlined operations and reinvigorated go-to-market engine are starting to execute well,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, President and CEO, Commvault. “Together with our new product portfolio and robust partner program, our customers are starting to embrace our intelligent data management vision.”

Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 were $173.0 million, an increase of 7% year over year and 5% sequentially.  Total recurring revenue was $141.1 million, an increase of 24% year over year.

Annualized recurring revenue (ARR), which is the annualized value of all active Commvault recurring revenue streams at the end of the reporting period, was $471.6 million as of June 30, 2020, up 9% from June 30, 2019.

Software and products revenue was $76.6 million, an increase of 20% year over year and 15% sequentially.  The year over year increase in software and products revenue was driven by a 41% increase in larger deals (deals greater than $0.1 million in software and products revenue).  The volume of these transactions was up 5% and the average dollar amount of these transactions increased 35% to $403,000.

Services revenue in the quarter was $96.4 million, a decrease of 2% both year over year and sequentially.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations was $6.7 million for the first quarter compared to loss of $6.7 million in the prior year.  Non-GAAP EBIT was $32.5 million in the quarter compared to $15.5 million in the prior year.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, Commvault reported GAAP net income of $2.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $23.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share.

Operating cash flow totaled $15.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $31.1 million in the prior year quarter.  Total cash and short-term investments were $356.3 million as of June 30, 2020 compared to $339.7 million as of March 31, 2020.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in Financial Statement Table IV included in this press release. (Download Financial Tables)

An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Commvault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and annualized recurring revenue (ARR).  This selected financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Commvault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  In addition, Commvault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating Commvault’s ongoing operational performance.  Commvault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Commvault’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community.  Commvault has also provided software and products, services and total revenues on a constant currency basis. Commvault analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

All of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV included in this press release. (Download Financial Tables)

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional FICA and related payroll tax expense incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards as well as restructuring costs.  In fiscal 2020, Commvault also excluded costs related to a non-routine shareholder matter. Commvault has also excluded the noncash amortization of intangible assets and certain costs related to key employees of Hedvig from its non-GAAP results. These expenses are further discussed in Table IV.  Commvault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare Commvault’s core operating results over multiple periods.  When evaluating the performance of Commvault’s operating results and developing short- and long-term plans, Commvault does not consider such expenses.

Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, Commvault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans.  Commvault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between Commvault’s operating results and those of other companies.

Amortization of intangible assets is a noncash item.  Commvault believes the exclusion of this amortization expense provides for a useful comparison of operating results to prior periods and to other companies.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature.  Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in Commvault’s operating results.  In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of Commvault’s employees’ compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance.  Lastly, the components that Commvault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.

Commvault’s management generally compensates for the limitations described above related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures by providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, Commvault management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS).  In addition to the adjustments discussed in non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS incorporate a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%.

Commvault anticipates that in any given period its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations. The GAAP tax rates in recent fiscal years were not meaningful percentages due to the dollar amount of GAAP pre-tax income.  For the same reason as the GAAP tax rates, the estimated cash tax rates in recent fiscal years are not meaningful percentages. Commvault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income. Over time, Commvault believes its GAAP and cash tax rates will align.

Commvault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for Commvault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that Commvault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to Commvault’s use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.

Conference Call Information
Commvault will host a conference call today, July 28, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time (5:30 a.m. Pacific Time) to discuss its financial results.  To access this call, dial 844-742-4247 (domestic) or 661-378-9470 (international).  The live webcast can be accessed under the “Events” section of Commvault’s website.

Vendors in the report are evaluated based on ability to execute and completeness of vision

SINGAPORE, July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, was positioned in the Visionaries quadrant in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.

According to the report, “the move toward public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions. This research provides analyses of backup and recovery vendors.”

“Over the past several years, Acronis has shifted its focus from being a backup vendor to offering cyber protection, a holistic approach that combines data protection and cybersecurity. It is encouraging to be acknowledged as a Visionary by Gartner, and we see this recognition as validation of the critical interdependency between backup and cybersecurity,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov.

While the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions report is focused on the data center, the primary focus for Acronis has always been protecting the edge and endpoint. Beloussov continues, “We have a unique ability to provide cyber protection for enterprises – focusing on edge and endpoint workloads. Our newest solution Acronis Cyber Protect provides AI-powered anti-malware protection, vulnerability assessments and patch management, continuous data protection, URL filtering and fast, reliable backup and disaster recovery, all from an easy-to-manage console.”

New research from Databarracks reveals organisations are benefiting from increased investment in IT security and cyber testing

LONDON, UK – July 28, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — New research from Databarracks has revealed that, for the first time, cyber-attacks have decreased as a cause of data loss (down from 17% in 2019 to 13% in 2020).

The findings are taken from Databarracks’ annual Data Health Check survey which has run since 2008. The survey questions over 400 IT decision-makers in the UK on a series of critical issues relating to IT, security, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity practices.

Data losss caused by cyber attacks

The findings show organisations have been steadily increasing cyber budgets, with 40% reporting increased investment in the last 12 months (up from 33% last year). There is an increase in confidence as 64% of respondents (up from 56% last year) claim they now have sufficient in-house cyber security skills to deal with the current threat landscape.

Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks explained the findings: “For as long as we have been running the Data Health Check, cyber-attacks have been growing as a cause of data loss – until now. It looks like we are finally starting to turn the tide.

“Although we have seen a reduction in data loss caused by cyber-attacks, it is still growing as a cause of downtime, increasing every year since 2016. A cyber-attack does not necessitate a loss of data if it can be adequately defended or data restored from backups. Recovering from a cyber incident takes time and may require systems to be taken offline as a precaution. The research suggests many organisations have prioritised protecting their data and improving their in-house defences against common cyber threats.”

Groucutt continued: “These improvements are the result of sustained investment and effort over several years.However, it needs to be emphasised that defending against these threats is an ongoing battle. We might have closed the gap in the arms-race with cyber criminals but if we don’t keep up our pace, we’ll soon fall behind.

“Since lockdown began, cyber criminals have been looking to take advantage of the disruption. Ransomware attacks on Honda, Blackbaud, the healthcare sector and more recently Garmin have highlighted how damaging it can be for an organisation to be affected by multiple concurrent crises when in an already weakened state.

“Staff are decentralised, working remotely, increasing the attack surface. That gives cyber criminals new opportunities to exploit.”

Downtime caused by cyber attacks

Groucutt concluded: “It is understandable that many organisations will be operating under budget constraints due to COVID-19, but IT has proven to be the critical business service in the pandemic. It’s vital that they continue to invest in mission-critical IT services, especially cyber security to avoid having to cope with a ‘crisis in a crisis’.

GARDEN CITY, NY – July 27, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Webair, a leading Managed Cloud-based Infrastructure Solutions provider, today announces that it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Disaster Recovery as a Service report. Gartner’s Market Guide for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service provides insights for IT decision-makers into the DRaaS market, including key findings, market analysis, market direction, recommendations, and representative vendors.

Webair has also been named a Notable Vendor in the most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service report.

The need for fully inclusive Disaster Recovery capabilities is critical for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprise organizations alike, and many are turning to DRaaS providers such as Webair to fill the gaps in their strategies. Webair’s global network of compliant, secure data centers and its ability to tailor services to meet its clients’ unique requirements make Webair’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service offering attractive to IT decision-makers spanning a wide range of industries and verticals including healthcare, government, banking, finance, education, legal, and enterprise organizations.

“Webair continues to focus on making our disaster recovery solutions exceed our customers’ expectations by providing feature-rich functionality through our custom-designed portal to give our customers full control of their environments,” says Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer of Webair. “We have the ability to constantly adapt and innovate our Disaster Recovery platform with integrations such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), support for a multitude of compute and storage platforms, and customizable security integrations.

Today, enterprise organizations in particular are under constant pressure to ensure the resilience of their critical IT assets in an ever-changing environment. This includes a dramatic increase in ransomware attacks, data sovereignty, and compliance requirements as well as IT departments who are overburdened with an ever-increasing number of responsibilities. Concurrently, they seek cloud-based platforms to ensure their businesses can quickly adapt to a post-COVID world. All of these factors make it extremely challenging for organizations to sustain true resilience and Disaster Recovery capabilities. As a result, more and more organizations are acknowledging this challenge and turning to Webair to provide comprehensive Disaster Recovery solutions that meet the unique challenges and requirements of the modern enterprise.

The latest version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication introduces Backup to Wasabi, vSphere 7 support, Full P2V Recovery and more

Sparks, NV – July 23, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company dedicated to protecting virtual, physical, cloud and SaaS environments, announced today the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v10.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides businesses with the tools they need to protect their entire IT infrastructure—from VMware, Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV VMs and Amazon EC2 instances to physical servers and workstations, Oracle databases, and Microsoft Office 365 application data. The introduction of Backup to Wasabi in v10 gives customers the power to leverage scalable cloud storage while retaining the option to store confidential data on local or off-site storage devices and tape media.

The new features in NAKIVO Backup & Replication v10 include:

Backup to Wasabi
Wasabi has disrupted the cloud storage market by offering fast and reliable cloud object storage at one fifth the price of major competitors. With only a single, all-purpose storage tier and no fees for egress and API requests, Wasabi has made it easier for businesses to forecast storage costs and manage cloud-based data. And now, with the release of Backup to Wasabi, NAKIVO customers can perform a range of full and granular recoveries tailored to their specific business needs.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows customers to unlock the full potential of Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage:

  • Send backups and backup copies of virtual and physical machines, Oracle databases and Amazon EC2 instances to Wasabi.
  • Reduce backup sizes with data reduction techniques and incremental backups to cut storage costs.
  • Eliminate downtime by instantly booting virtual machines directly from backups stored on Wasabi.
  • Restore individual files and application objects to source and custom locations directly from Wasabi backups.
  • Automate data protection with policies, Job Chaining and scheduled routine backup jobs.

“Wasabi is changing the way businesses approach cloud storage by combining affordability and simplicity with speed and reliability,” said Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Wasabi and provide a data protection solution to allow businesses to maximize the advantages offered by Wasabi.”

“By combining Wasabi’s hot cloud storage with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, IT decision makers are empowered with a better choice to simplify their data protection,” said Dave Friend, Wasabi’s CEO. “In partnership with NAKIVO, Wasabi enables more businesses to focus on growth, innovation and the other critical business functions that data powers for them— not on its overpriced, complicated storage.”

vSphere 7 Support
NAKIVO Backup & Replication now supports backup, replication and recovery for VMs running on vSphere 7, the latest version of VMware’s server virtualization platform. This enables users to leverage the advanced functionality of vSphere 7 while ensuring their virtual infrastructure remains protected.

Full P2V Recovery
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can now recover physical machine backups to VMware VMs. Full P2V Recovery creates virtual versions of physical servers and workstations that are ready for production environments, simplifying physical to virtual migrations and recovery in case of machine failure.

Linux Workstation Backup
NAKIVO customers can now perform application-aware, incremental backups of Linux workstations running Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop and Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop. In addition to full recoveries of entire Linux workstations, NAKIVO Backup & Replication also offers granular recoveries to restore individual files and application objects from compressed and deduplicated backups.

Feature Availability
Backup to Wasabi is available with perpetual or subscription licenses for Enterprise, Enterprise Plus, Enterprise Essentials, MSP Enterprise, and MSP Enterprise Plus editions. VMware Backup and Linux Workstation Backup are available with any edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication while P2V Recovery is available with every edition except Basic. The 15-day Free Trial gives access to every feature, including Backup to Wasabi, and does not have any capacity restrictions.

“Our objective for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v10 is to give businesses even greater flexibility and control over the whole data protection process,” said Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “We deepened the pool of protected environments with support for vSphere 7 and Linux workstations, added a new cloud storage destination in Wasabi and introduced P2V Recovery to shorten RTOs and simplify physical to virtual migrations.”

Supporting Quote:
“With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we were able to simplify disaster recovery, save costs, and utilize existing NAS servers. The licensing costs that were offered by NAKIVO turned out to be cheaper than the yearly maintenance costs of our previous product,” says Alejandro Canet, IT Project Coordinator at Save the Children Spain.

From multi-bay RAID solutions to single desktop drives, G-Technology continues to adapt to demanding storage needs

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Jul 23, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) announced it is extending the industry’s highest capacity Ultrastar® HDDs to a selection of its G-Technology products, empowering professionals with powerful, ultra-reliable solutions to manage massive volumes of content for optimized creative workflows. A first for the consumer and professional markets, the 18TB enterprise-class Ultrastar drives are available in three G-Technology brand product families, including G-DRIVE™, G-RAID™ with Thunderbolt 3®, G-SPEED™ Shuttle with Thunderbolt 3 and G-SPEED™ Shuttle XL with Thunderbolt 3.

The commercially available enterprise-class 18TB Ultrastar HDDs deliver the industry’s highest areal density by leveraging innovative new technologies including Energy-Assisted Magnetic Recording technology, the industry’s first Triple Stage Actuator, and a 9-disk HelioSeal platform. The powerful 7,200 RPM drives come with a 2.5M hours MTBF rating* and a 5-year limited warranty.

“Over the course of my career as a commercial and fine art photographer, director, and director of photography with a specialization in aerial photography, I’ve captured over 300TB of content. Peers often inquire about my digital storage best practices and I point them in the direction of G-Technology’s RAID-configurable G-SPEED Shuttle family for their heavy-duty archival storage needs. The massive capacities available significantly cuts the overall costs for my storage needs and allows me to be incredibly efficient when I’m in the field,” said Vincent Laforet, G-Technology G-TEAM ambassador.

The G-SPEED Shuttle range of studio-ready storage solutions were designed with one purpose in mind – to meet the workflow needs of today’s industry demands and asks of its media production creatives. Available in 4-bay and 8-bay form factors, the G-SPEED Shuttle and G-SPEED Shuttle XL are configurable in RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and JBOD and 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, JBOD, respectively. The products are engineered to run fast and around the clock making them perfect for super-fast transfers, consolidated master backups, and scalable workflows. The range is built tough and transportable with an available Pelican case. These high-throughput solutions utilize high-capacity, high-performance enterprise-class hard drives that can be user-configured into a wide range of RAID options weighted toward speed or additional data protection and are now available in massive capacities up to 144TB in one system.

G-RAID with Thunderbolt 3 is a desktop solution designed for rigorous applications and multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR workflows. The dual drive bays of the G-RAID device support hardware-controlled RAID 0 and RAID 1. The default RAID 0 stripes the two drives together, providing enhanced read and write speeds, but no data redundancy, while RAID 1 mirrors the content of one drive to the other, providing 1:1 data redundancy at the cost of performance. Additionally, G-RAID offers the ability to daisy chain up to five additional devices using the Thunderbolt 3 interface. For those who do not need the benefits of a RAID, JBOD is also supported. With the inclusion of the 18TB drive, G-RAID now offers up to 36TB of data storage.

G-Technology’s G-DRIVE solution is available with USB 3.0, USB-C™ or Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. These external HDD offerings are built for storage-intensive applications like audio/video editing and digital photography. The G-DRIVE external drive products provide up to 18TB of enterprise-class storage, a rotational speed of 7,200 rpm, and an interface to meet the standards of the creative enthusiast or professional. The drives are encased in an attractive all-aluminum enclosure that is macOS-compatible and Time Machine-ready. The G-DRIVE USB-C external drive can support up to 45 watts of USB power delivery through the USB-C port, this drive can charge your compatible MacBook or MacBook Pro without having to take a separate MacBook charger out of your bag.

“We understand the value of digital content, and we create products that match the passion of the digital creators. G-Technology products improve the efficiency of digital workflows and protect high-value media with a wide range of storage solutions that enable creators to push the boundaries of what’s possible. We are excited to be able to offer this innovative, best-in-class technology to help simplify workflows and assist with archival consolidation,” said Jim Welsh, SVP and general manager, Content Solutions Business Unit, Western Digital.

The G-SPEED Shuttle/G-SPEED Shuttle XL, G-RAID and G-DRIVE with 18TB drives will be available to U.S. customers at shop.westerndigital.com in August. For more information and pricing for these G-Technology offerings, please visit shop.westerndigital.com
