Modern backup and disaster recovery for hybrid and native AWS deployments

BOSTON, MA – April 21, 2021 — / — Zerto, an industry leader in cloud data management and protection, opened its annual ZertoCON event with the announcement of new data protection solutions for Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads. From backup and disaster recovery (DR) for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (Amazon EKS), disaster recovery across AWS Regions or Availability Zones, and new backup capabilities for AWS focused on cost optimization and security to safeguard companies from malicious intent.

Zerto backup and disaster recovery for Amazon EKS is a new offering that integrates backup and disaster recovery into the application deployment lifecycle for Amazon EKS. Organizations can now easily protect, recover, and move any Kubernetes application and its persistent data for a native, data protection as code experience.

In addition, Zerto now offers disaster recovery across AWS Regions and Availability Zones, at scale. This new Zerto offering is designed to protect large scale native AWS applications for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) data. Today, organizations hit limits when trying to replicate thousands of instances across AWS Regions. This challenge results in increased Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). Zerto’s approach for in-cloud replication will solve this issue by utilizing techniques which improve volume replication concurrency across regions, utilization of data APIs which reduce reads and writes and optimization of the overall orchestration workflows to allow for low RPOs and RTOs of minutes without use of agents.

Available now in beta, the Zerto Platform delivers disaster recovery capabilities that are simple to deploy, easy to use, and automates the orchestration of failover and failover testing across AWS Regions and Availability Zones. Customers with production applications running in AWS, such as SAP or Oracle, can now failover between AWS Regions or Availability Zones and be assured that the application is maintained in a consistent manner and recovered as one consistent entity.

Also announced on the first day of ZertoCON, Zerto 9.0 introduces new backup capabilities for AWS focused on cost optimization and security that include new cloud tiering into Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) Glacier for cost-effective storage and new immutability for backups to AWS. Immutability safeguards cloud backups from malicious deletion or encryption of data through ransomware.

“The availability of continuous data protection for AWS workloads is an important step for organizations who want to safeguard their data wherever it is used across this market-leading set of cloud services,” commented Gil Levonai, CMO and Senior Vice President of product, Zerto. “In doing so, Zerto and AWS customers can build cloud-native solutions and infrastructure, underpinned by a single solution that delivers data protection, recovery, and migration of data to and across AWS.”

ZertoCON 2021 Virtual is focused on enabling organizations to ‘Unlock Continuous Cloud Protection’ across disaster recovery, backup, and cloud migrations to easily accelerate their cloud journey. This year’s event will help attendees understand how to simplify management and protection of cloud workloads, all while quickly recovering from ransomware attacks and other disruptions that could impact data and cause downtime.

Record revenues in 2020 driven by growing Enterprise File Fabric adoption for enterprises who require unified file and object storage along with cybersecurity and compliance protections for hybrid workers

LONDON, UK – April 21st 2021 — / — Vehera LTD, trading as Storage Made Easy® (SME), today announced revenue growth of c. 28% for their fiscal year end 31st March 2021.

There were several reasons for growth:

The pandemic fuelled company employees working from home. This led to companies needing to scale the availability, security and compliance of their existing data sources.

The sheer volume of data consumed by employees working remotely rose dramatically during the pandemic, particularly in verticals that deal with large files such as Media and Entertainment and Healthcare. The increase in data sizes led to Object Storage increasingly being used in conjunction with file storage as primary storage for many employees, something which the File Fabric’s global file system easily facilitates.

Growth also occurred due to companies having the need for employees to remotely access sensitive SMB file data stored on-premises. The File Fabric was able to provide this without the need for VPN and in a way that was secure, seamless and easy for end users to access, either through a web browser or integrated desktop ‘home drives’. Where companies transitioned office-locked SMB data to cloud solutions such as Amazon FSx or Azure Files, the File Fabric was able to provide secure end user access in the same manner.

Additionally, new features, like integration into products such as Microsoft Teams, were released during the pandemic to facilitate easy integrated access for Company employees.

CEO Jim Liddle said, “The File Fabric is a multicloud non-proprietary data platform for File and Object Storage that provides businesses a cost-efficient, maximum flexibility way to run their organizations as they need to. This includes factoring in from the outset the means to support an ever-growing list of regulatory compliance regimes such as GDPR and CCPA and cybersecurity threats such as Ransomware Protection.” He added: “We have seen our business grow in the last year, in part due to the increased need for combined file and object storage but also due to our greater focus on Distributor and VAR channels which we expect to form a much greater part of our revenue stream in the forthcoming year.”

About Storage Made Easy (SME)
Storage Made Easy’s Enterprise File Fabric™ integrates file and object data into one single platform through a unified file system that works with on-premises and on-cloud data storage assets.

End users, whether local or remote, are able to access the unified file system using web scale protocols and clients that bridge desktop and cloud, but which provide familiar workflows to end users.

Cloud-like economics are provided across a company’s entire storage portfolio, unlocking the benefits and cost-efficiency of its data assets whilst providing strict controls and governance for legislative compliance, such as GDPR and CCPA, and addressing security concerns such as ransomware attacks.

The platform’s unique File Transfer acceleration technology M-Stream®, speeds up the transfer of files from desktop to storage, storage to desktop or even public cloud to public cloud, enhancing user productivity and providing ROI on latency sensitive workflows.

The company is backed by Moore Strategic Ventures, LLC, the private investment vehicle of Louis M. Bacon, in addition to other private shareholders including London-based entrepreneurs who previously successfully exited their businesses to larger industry peers.

Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera LTD.

BARCELONA, Spain – April 21, 2021 — / — Abiquo, the leading Cloud Management Provider, releases version 5.2, which delivers new functionalities for business competitive advantage along with new enhancements that help cloud users simplify tasks and workflow.

DRaaS: Zerto integration to secure cloud resources
Multi-cloud environments require a powerful backup system to allow companies to cover their customized disaster recovery needs and to help that purpose, Abiquo 5.2 introduces the new DRaaS feature providing self-service disaster recovery for Abiquo users, by adding its first integration with Zerto for vCenter.

This new integration simplifies the process of disaster recovery and also enables users to set up their own DR policies and perform failover tests and failovers directly in Zerto.

The new elements added in Abiquo, such as the Protection Managers representing the Zerto Virtual Managers and the DR protection button, will save administrators time securing VMs by allowing customization of their specific disaster recovery tasks.

Enhanced Google Cloud Integration
Abiquo 5.2 offers a new plugin that improves and extends the previous support for Google Cloud. Thanks to this new integration, users will be able to use more Google Cloud features directly from Abiquo which will enhance the ability to manage public cloud resources from the same place, which makes life easier for administrators.

Some of the new features available in Abiquo include the ability to deploy VMs with Google Cloud’s hardware profiles, manage VPC networks, subnets, internal and external IPs, add public cloud regions, load public projects with VM templates and create a catalog, automatic subnet creation for test environments, remote access with the user’s SSH key or template password, view Google Cloud billing for projects, amongst others.

Other Abiquo core features, such as scaling and action plans’ automation are now available for Google Cloud too.

Azure ARM Resource groups
Abiquo 5.2 extends and enhances its Azure ARM integration including support for Resource Groups, enabling users to manage groups of resources across multiple regions in Azure.

Thanks to this powerful new feature, companies will be able to get more control over cloud resources, saving important amounts of time and reducing management difficulty, increasing agility in dealing with admin tasks, making it possible to be more efficient in managing costs too.

Abiquo helps your business gain full control of your resources through the new Global section in the virtual datacenters’ view which makes it possible to quickly create, edit and delete resource groups in the virtual datacenter, as well as perform additional actions, such as edit entities and move VMs from one resource group to another.

Multicloud tagging
Abiquo 5.2 adds multicloud tag management to help optimize your multicloud infrastructure, adding extra visibility, and the ability to create reports and, thus, achieve greater comprehension and management of your multicloud resources.

Tag Management in Abiquo enables you to group all the resources for the same project across your whole multicloud platform, making it easier to identify and group resources by tags in public and private cloud, as well as in the most popular public cloud providers (AWS and Microsoft Azure). Also, create internal tags for Abiquo resources, such as virtual appliances, that only exist in the Abiquo platform. In addition, Abiquo’s UI has been properly adapted to make it even easier for you to search and display resources with tags.

Good use of tagging can improve your Azure resource groups strategy too, as you can associate tags to your resource groups which will ensure greater optimization of all resources.

Visualization and organization of billing data

Object Storage Platform Seamlessly Connects Applications To Decentralized Storage Networks, Creating a Drop-In Replacement For S3 At A Fraction of The Cost

BOSTON, MA – April 20, 2021 — / — Filebase, the world’s first object storage platform powered by decentralized storage networks, today announced a $2M seed round led by Multicoin Capital with participation from Version One Ventures and notable angels like Ryan Selkis. The funds will be used to on-board customers in the pipeline and support growth by hiring more engineering, marketing, and sales talent.

The Filebase platform offers a browser-based dashboard and an S3-compatible API to deploy, access and manage data across several decentralized storage networks. It completely abstracts all of the interactions with the underlying networks and has turn-key configurations that help developers to move or replicate data effortlessly. The platform currently supports the Sia Network and the Storj Network and has plans to expand to the Filecoin Network and the
Arweave Network by the end of 2021.

“Our mission is to make decentralized storage accessible and easy to use for everyone. We work with CTOs, CISOs, enterprises, managed service providers, and individual Web3 developers. While all of them have different motivations, they all share the same need for highly-distributed, geo-redundant storage,” said Joshua Noble, CEO and Co-founder of Filebase. “We’ve built a performant access layer to decentralized storage networks, which are
among the most distributed and secure networks in the world, with a familiar S3-compatible interface that developers know and generally love.”

While cloud-based storage is typically inexpensive, geographically-redundant storage is not. Filebase can offer more competitive pricing and guarantee objects are redundantly stored at a replication factor of 3x across thousands of servers globally because it is built on top of several decentralized networks, which are inherently decentralized. This makes Filebase an ideal platform for developers with valuable data or larger companies or enterprises focused on disaster recovery. These users can save up to 90 percent with Filebase by switching from traditional cloud storage providers.

“Decentralized storage networks are non-trivial to use. They often require developers to implement custom software, unique configurations, or special integrations. This stands in stark contrast to how the vast majority of developers are familiar with storing their data, which is on Amazon S3.” said Kyle Samani, Managing Partner, Multicoin Capital. “By offering a S3-compatible API, Filebase makes it ridiculously simple for developers to leverage decentralized storage networks without ever having to intersect the networks themselves.”

Decentralized storage networks can suffer from higher latency compared to centralized alternatives. To combat this, Filebase built a proprietary edge-caching technology that increases throughput and lowers response times for both ingress and egress. The caching layer achieves industry-leading performance and makes it possible to build applications and experiences on decentralized networks that are indistinguishable from applications built on Amazon S3, making them a variable alternative for the first time.

“Disaster recovery is now dead simple, thanks to the native geo-replication that’s offered by decentralized networks.” said Zac Cohen, Co-founder of Filebase. “Enterprises and IT professionals no longer need to worry about planning for a costly and complex DR strategy.”

Cloud Propeller, a leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure solutions has deployed Violin All-Flash NVMe storage to ensure the performance, reliability, and affordability of its public cloud services

Leading MSP and Premier IT Solutions Provider, Now Offering Violin QV-Series to End Clients

SUNNYVALE, CA – April 20, 2021 — / — StorCentric, a global enterprise leader in data management and reliable storage solutions, today announced that Cloud Propeller, a leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure solutions has deployed Violin All-Flash NVMe storage to ensure the performance, reliability, and affordability of its public cloud services. In addition, StorCentric also announced today that having experienced Violin storage for themselves, Cloud Propeller will now be offering the Violin QV-Series to end customers.

Applications are the operational heart of all Cloud Propeller clients, which run a wide variety of ERP, CRM, GL, OLAP, OLTP, ERM, BI, and EDW workloads. Maintaining enterprise-class data protection, efficiency, and easy-to-manage storage performance is therefore essential. Recently, Cloud Propeller decided it required a replacement solution for its VMware vSAN (virtual storage area network) hyperconverged infrastructure due to performance issues and other challenges. Cloud Propeller needed extremely reliable storage, and initiated an evaluation of NVMe-backed vSAN, Tintri, and Violin systems. After a thorough review, Violin emerged as the ideal solution — offering Cloud Propeller the most robust mix of features and functionality — chief among them, the utmost reliability and performance.

“Not only was Violin the strongest offering, but it also came in at the best price by a significant factor,” said Petar Smilajkov, CEO & Chief Architect, Cloud Propeller, Inc. “We also really liked that Violin is an active/active system, whereas many of its competitors are active/passive. In other words, with Violin’s active/active controller design, both controllers are available to handle our critical operations. We read and write data to both controllers simultaneously, which doubles the theoretical and significantly increases the practical throughput of our storage array. As such, during firmware upgrades there is no traditional ‘failover’ or IO pause, rather we only cut the available throughput in half during that time. And, if one controller fails, we immediately have access to the second controller without interruptions for performance and operations continuity.”

Today, the Violin QV-Series ensures consistent low latency data access and throughput for Cloud Propeller’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Backup as a Service (BaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offerings. Cloud Propeller and its clients can now deploy critical applications with unrivaled data protection, efficiency, and easy-to-manage storage performance to meet current and future business demands.

“Cloud Propeller required a solution that would enable them to continue to compete with the large well-known public clouds, but in a more manageable, faster, affordable, and trustworthy fashion,” said Surya Varanasi, CTO, StorCentric, parent company of Violin Systems. “Violin’s 100% NVMe architecture will enable these capabilities, helping Cloud Propeller to not only meet customer requirements, but also rapidly launch new services, reduce IT costs, and increase profitability.” He continued, “We are also delighted and proud to welcome them into the Violin Systems channel partner ecosystem.”

Cloud Propeller now offers Violin Systems to end customers, knowing the all-flash NVMe storage can easily optimize their business applications such as VMWare, Oracle, Microsoft, and SAP while lowering overall IT costs. Fast out of the gate, one of its first sales was to a local state government agency that needed to replace its aging Nimble storage. The client purchased two Violin storage arrays, which, having been set up and configured by Cloud Propeller, are now managed directly by the government client. If help is required, the client knows that they have a direct line to Cloud Propeller who will seamlessly provide assistance and deal directly with vendor support service, as their Professional Services supplier, if necessary.

Unlocking Continuous Cloud Protection for Hybrid, Public, and Native Cloud workloads

BOSTON, MA – April 20, 2021 — / — Zerto, an industry leader in cloud data management and protection, has announced the availability of Zerto for Kubernetes (Z4K) and previewed Zerto 9.0 at ZertoCON 2021 Virtual. Zerto’s Z4K applies its leading continuous data protection (CDP) technology to next-generation, containerized applications, enabling a new paradigm for backup and disaster recovery of applications and data across cloud and on-premises deployments. Additionally, Zerto 9.0, to be released in July, will build on Zerto’s track record of leadership in delivering cloud data management and protection solutions by adding backup to S3-compatible storage such as Cloudian, introducing cloud tiering for AWS and Azure and immutability in public cloud.

Zerto for Kubernetes is the only solution to provide continuous data protection-based backup and disaster recovery to integrate into the application deployment lifecycle for containerized applications to enable data protection as code. Z4K supports Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, and Red Hat OpenShift.

As every organization strives to accelerate application development, the reliance on a microservice architecture, typically running in containers, is becoming the new normal. By adding Zerto’s continuous data protection to the Kubernetes control plane, they will be protected from data loss and downtime even in cases of user errors, malicious activity, or infrastructure failures without having to worry about backup windows or external services.

The solution is designed for Kubernetes running on-premises or in the cloud as part of its cloud data management and protection platform. It enables users to easily protect and recover any Kubernetes application and its persistent data for accelerated delivery and deployment.

In a recent ESG survey, it is clear that there is a widespread adoption of containers. The survey found that 71% of respondents have deployed or plan to deploy container-based applications in a hybrid-cloud strategy.* This survey and other analyst reports supporting the growing adoption of containers, including, “VM data protection veteran Zerto sets its sights on Kubernetes-based stateful apps” written by Liam Rogers, 451 Research. A part of S&P Market Intelligence, can be viewed, here —

Zerto 9.0 will introduce new public cloud backup platforms and capabilities for complete data protection flexibility. Zerto 9.0 introduces backup to S3-compatible storage such as Cloudian, cloud tiering for AWS and Azure, and immutability for public cloud.

Specifically, cloud tiering for AWS and Azure tiers cloud data into Amazon S3 Glacier and Azure Archive. Users can define retention policies in Zerto for storing and migrating long-term retention backups from online frequent access storage classes into more cost-effective in-frequent access storage classes all the way through to archive storage in both Azure and AWS. This leverages cloud native APIs for tiering the backups without consuming compute resources to maximize cost saving capabilities.

In addition, immutability settings for backups in AWS can now be managed within the Zerto user interface. Zerto users can set how long backups can remain unaltered in order to safeguard cloud backups from malicious deletion or modification of data, such as from ransomware.

Zerto 9.0 will also offer a range of other new features including Enhanced Backup Management, Instant VM Restore From journal and File Restore from LTR. Each of these capabilities help users to maximize cloud data management and protection. Zerto 9.0 will be available in July 2021.

“Cloud-native and containerized apps and infrastructure are quickly coming down the pike – if they are not already the reality. As these resources become business critical, enterprise IT must be prepared to protect them. Additionally, the pandemic has increased usage of cloud infrastructure – including for immutable long-term retention storage to combat ransomware. Zerto 9.0 is an important step forward for the company in providing capabilities that help customers address these needs,” commented Krista Macomber, senior analyst, Evaluator Group**.

“These significant announcements play an important role in unlocking continuous protection and extend Zerto’s position at the forefront of innovation for cloud data management and protection,” commented Deepak Verma, vice president, product, Zerto. “Organizations that are building their future around cloud native architectures need to have full confidence in the integrity of their infrastructure, resilience, and their ability to recover from issues such as cyberattacks and technology failures without delay. These solutions both deliver on those objectives.”

New S3 Gateway Enables Developers To Easily Take Advantage of the Privacy and Security Made Possible with Decentralized Cloud Storage

ATLANTA, GA – April 20, 2021 — / — Storj today announced a new multi-tenant, S3-compatible gateway that enables developers to easily take advantage of the unsurpassed privacy and security benefits of Storj DCS (Decentralized Cloud Storage). The new Storj DCS product replaces the company’s Tardigrade offering and delivers a new onboarding experience, lower pricing, and added features so developers can start building on the decentralized cloud with ease.

With the new multi-tenant gateway, developers can now simply change a few lines of code in their existing Amazon S3-compatible applications to immediately start storing data on Storj DCS, giving them redundancy that goes beyond multi-region, encryption by default, and edge-based security at a fraction of the cost of single-region services from other providers. The update also includes new features like multi-part upload that improve performance when storing large objects on Storj DCS.

“Developers love the simplicity of the cloud but are increasingly finding themselves conflicted with the privacy and security shortcomings of centralized cloud storage providers,” says Ben Golub, Storj Executive Chairman and CEO. “New technologies and approaches like decentralization and the Storj DCS multi-tenant gateway mean developers can have better ownership and control of their data at a lower cost and without any extra effort, so they can build more secure and private applications.”

Since Storj released its production decentralized cloud storage service, Tardigrade, in 2020, developers have applauded its speed, consistent performance, revolutionary privacy, and superior security. The launch of Storj DCS and the multi-tenant gateway enables developers to simply direct new objects to Storj DCS or easily migrate existing S3-compatible applications to the decentralized cloud without running any additional software or making extensive code changes. The multi-tenant gateway means Storj can now support new use cases, such as web applications and data migration from centralized cloud providers.

The multi-tenant gateway is deployed in multiple locations around the world which have peering relationships with the large centralized cloud providers, making data migration and hybrid operations much faster and much less expensive. Storj will continue to support locally hosted gateways as a first-class option for those customers who prefer to host their own gateways.

With multi-part upload, customers’ files that are uploaded to Storj DCS are split into multiple parts and later reassembled into a single object for increased efficiency and flexibility. While Storj historically has delivered more consistent performance than legacy cloud storage providers due to its decentralized architecture, multi-part uploads further optimize performance for large objects and many new use cases.

Storj customers have reported many benefits while using its products, including resistance to ransomware and tampering by bad actors. Its edge-based security model means only the data owners and those they authorize can access files stored on Storj DCS. The product also has more consistent performance due to its decentralized architecture, which divides objects into many pieces for redundancy, distributes them globally, and then downloads from the fastest locations.

“Powering more than 900,000 servers and millions of websites, Plesk and cPanel are very excited to offer web professionals a new way to back up their websites and servers,” says Lukas Hertig, SVP Business Development at Plesk/WebPros Group. “Storj DCS is integrated with our products through its native S3 integration and extends our range of backup offering towards the decentralized world. Decentralized cloud storage is the future of web3, but it’s also a way to become more independent of centralized players in this market, at 20 percent of the price of comparable offerings with the same enterprise service level agreements.”

Along with the launch of Storj DCS, the company has also lowered its pricing by more than half for storage and more than 80 percent for bandwidth. Storage costs on Storj DCS will now be charged at $4 per terabyte per month (previously $10) and bandwidth costs will now be lowered to $7 per terabyte per month (previously $45). These low costs, combined with superior privacy, security, and redundancy that goes beyond multi-region—plus enterprise service level agreements—make switching to Storj DCS an obvious choice for developers around the world. Storj DCS also offers a free plan for developers and small projects that allows them to store and download 150 GB of data a month split across three projects.

“Over the past year, we’ve gathered our customers’ feedback to further refine our decentralized cloud storage service, greatly simplify the onboarding process, and drastically lower costs for developers who are looking for cloud storage that is not only affordable, but private, secure, reliable, and enterprise-grade,” said Paul Ford, Storj CMO. “The new Storj DCS delivers everything developers and companies want for their object storage needs, and the new onboarding process will make the adoption of decentralized cloud storage easier than even traditional services.”

Storj DCS has integrations with developers’ favorite open-source software tools, including: FileZilla, MongoDB, Duplicati, Plesk, Rclone, and more. These integrations are driven by developers demanding new tools, capabilities, and services that provide the benefits decentralized systems deliver. By integrating with Storj DCS, developer tools and platforms can give customers superior privacy and security. Decentralized systems with boundary-less architectures also deliver better resiliency and fault tolerance.

Johannesburg, South Africa – 18 Apr 2021 — / — Infinidat, a leading provider of enterprise-class storage solutions, today announced the world’s fastest data recovery capabilities to significantly enhance its InfiniGuard appliance for enterprise users. The new InfiniGuard CyberRecovery capabilities provide best-in-class transparent protection of the entire backup environment. It features immutable snapshots and near-instantaneous recovery to previous points-in-time based on customer-defined policies. These advancements uniquely address the threat of cyber attacks, such as ransomware, which attacks companies, on average, every 14 seconds.

“With our InfiniGuard solution, Infinidat significantly raises the bar in ransomware protection with near-instantaneous cyber recovery,” said Phil Bullinger, CEO of Infinidat. “The exciting new enhancements to our InfiniGuard platform represent superior recovery capabilities that advance data protection. We are enabling enterprise customers to establish a new line of defence for data backup that is critical in 2021 and beyond.”

InfiniGuard CyberRecovery addresses the growing threat of ransomware, a malicious intrusion into the data centres of enterprises and cloud service providers. When ransomware takes data hostage, it destroys backup copies of data, steals credentials, leaks stolen information and worse. It has caused businesses of all sizes to shut down operations overnight, so it is not unusual for a company to pay a large sum of money to restore their business.

“With ransomware already costing enterprises $20 billion USD a year, CIOs need to go beyond just backup to put a comprehensive and bulletproof cyber security strategy in place,” said Eric Burgener, Research Vice-President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group at IDC. “That strategy needs to provide transparent, policy-based workflows using immutable snapshots, air gap protection and flexible, granular and high performance recovery – all of which imply the need for a next-generation data protection architecture.”

Discovering how ransomware intrudes into an enterprise IT infrastructure is extremely challenging and often happens after damage is already done to a company. The attack surface has also broadened over the past year because of the increased levels of companies’ employees working from home. The traditional line of defence has been data backup, but cyber terrorists now attack the backup and the storage that houses the backup solutions, too; therefore, data backup on its own is no longer sufficient as a defence.

InfiniGuard CyberRecovery protects the backup solution itself through its transparent protection functionality, which is a new-generation approach to defending against ransomware and other cyber threats. InfiniGuard offers immutable snapshots using WORM (write once read many) technology, ensuring that copies of data cannot be deleted, encrypted or changed.

Infinidat’s expanded cyber recovery solution also utilises policy-based point-in-time recovery capabilities to enable the near-instantaneous recovery back to any point in the history of the data for data integrity and consistency. For enterprises who want to verify the data before it goes back online in a business operational environment, InfiniGuard provides an isolated test environment that is easy to use.

“Protecting your entire backup environment is now an essential part of any organisation’s cyber defence strategy,” said Greg Harrison, VP Global Accounts of CBTS. “As a channel partner, InfiniGuard CyberRecovery offers our customers a powerful new way to better protect themselves from increasing threats. The fast speed with which you can recover, with full data integrity, makes InfiniGuard the rock star of cyber recovery.”

Infinidat’s newest innovation in cyber recovery on the InfiniGuard platform gives enterprise customers the ability to implement a new, more effective strategy to guard against, fight off and recover from damaging cyber attacks.

Infinidat helps enterprises and service providers empower their data-driven competitive advantage at scale. Infinidat’s software-focused architecture delivers sub-millisecond latency, 100% availability, and scalability with a significantly lower total cost of ownership than competing storage technologies. The company was founded by storage industry pioneer, Moshe Yanai, in 2011 and has shipped over 7.1EB worldwide to date. The corporate headquarters are based in Herzliya, Israel, and U.S. headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. For more information, visit

NovaBACKUP has demonstrated its commitment to uphold HIPAA compliance standards by completing Compliancy Group’s exclusive HIPAA compliance program

AGOURA HILLS, CA – April 15, 2021 — / — Reaffirming its commitment with the Dental and Healthcare industries, NovaBACKUP is pleased to announce that it has completed an exclusive compliance certification process with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Through the use of Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA verification program, The Guard, NovaBACKUP now holds the Seal of Compliance under their regulatory compliance program.

“Not all data backup companies fully address their HIPAA compliance, but with the increase in hackers targeting patient data, using a HIPAA compliant data backup company has never been more important. NovaBACKUP’s commitment to HIPAA shows that they truly care about keeping their clients’ data safe, and will prove to be a great asset for their differentiation in the market,” Paul Redding, VP Partner Engagement and Cyber Security, Compliancy Group.

The Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have gone above and beyond to implement an effective HIPAA compliance architecture using The Guard. HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is defined as any individually identifiable healthcare-related information. If vendors who service healthcare clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must also be HIPAA compliant.

Although taking this step is not legally required for data protection providers, NovaBACKUP has gone the extra mile to complete Compliancy Group’s Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. Compliancy Group has verified NovaBACKUP’s good faith effort to uphold HIPAA compliance standards through The Guard.

“Attaining the Compliancy Group seal demonstrates our dedication to the extra steps we take to safeguard our customer’s Protected Health Information (PHI). Now NovaBACKUP is a certified HIPAA-compliant local and cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solution that can be reinforced with Business Associates Agreements (BAA) for an enhanced level of trust.”, states Mike Andrews, NovaBACKUP’s CEO.

Clients and patients are becoming more aware of HIPAA compliance requirements and how the regulations protect their personal information. When considering backup solutions, starting with vendors who have completed specialized HIPAA training can help to check-off many of the requirements that healthcare providers have, saving valuable time. Forward-thinking technology providers like NovaBACKUP choose the Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.

About NovaBACKUP:
NovaBACKUP Corporation specializes in local and cloud-based backup and disaster recovery for managed service providers and professional offices. With over a million machines protected and over twenty years in the market, NovaBACKUP’s goal is to deliver high-performance, reliable and affordable data protection worldwide.

About Compliancy Group:
HIPAA should be simple. That’s why Compliancy Group is the only HIPAA software with expert Compliance CoachesTM holding your hand to simplify compliance. Built by auditors, Compliancy Group gives you confidence in your compliance plan to reduce risk, increase patient loyalty, and profitability of your organization.

Tech leader to add Acronis cyber protection technology into OWC storage products covering file and folder backups, flexible management, and integrated anti-ransomware

WOODSTOCK, Ill. – April 15, 2021 — / — OWC®, the premier zero-emissions Mac and PC technology company, and a respected provider of Memory, External Drives, SSDs, Mac & PC docking solutions, and performance upgrade kits, announces partnership with Acronis, making Acronis True Image OEM software available on OWC storage solutions that include SoftRAID today and will consist of additional or all OWC storage solutions in the future. Integrating best-of-breed backup and recovery with AI-enhanced anti-ransomware technology, Acronis’ solution ensures that a user’s digital life is protected – photos, files, applications, operating systems, and the devices they’re on.

Backing up and protecting data is critically important, yet too often the task falls to the bottom of the to-do list. Acronis True Image OEM is designed to complement a user’s existing workflow. And with modern ransomware targeting backup files and processes, it is the world’s first solution to unify backup and anti-ransomware capabilities in one to ensure data is protected from accidents, failures, and cyber attacks.

From set and forget backups that run at specific times during the day, week, or month to backups created regularly as data changes, Acronis True Image OEM ensures a reliable copy of data is available for a speedy recovery. If an issue occurs, restores of individual files or the entire system can be handled in just a few clicks.

“OWC has partnered with Acronis to bring the number one personal backup software to your workflow along with industry-leading antimalware protection. said Larry O’Connor, CEO and Founder of OWC. “Adding Acronis True Image Technology to our OWC storage solutions is truly amazing. This partnership will tremendously add to our customers feeling their data is safe and protected for years to come.”

The solution unites backup with AI-enhanced anti-ransomware technology, called Acronis Active Protection, which constantly monitors the system with behavioral heuristics to detect and stop ransomware and cryptojacking attacks in real-time. Acronis Active Protection continuously observes patterns in how data files change on a system, distinguishing between typical, expected behavior and those patterns that may signal hostile actions. The integrated solution is proven effective, stopping more than 600,000 ransomware attacks last year and topping testing by independent cybersecurity labs.

Acronis True Image OEM Highlights

  • Easy: Protect everything – photos, videos, files, applications, systems, and the devices they’re on in just a few clicks
  • Efficient: Create “set and forget” backups, while recovering and restoring files and folders quickly
  • Secure: Stop ransom ware and crypto jacking attacks from harming device data, backup files, and the application itself
  • Upgrade option: Move to the full version of Acronis True Image and future versions to unlock additional cyber protection features at special discounted rates.

“The partnership between OWC and Acronis is a match made in heaven as the world’s only personal cyber protection solution Acronis True Image is now available pre-installed on the industry leading OWC storage solutions including SoftRAID,” said Alexander Pantos Senior Director WW Prosumer Channel Development. “Allowing OWC’s creative pros to use one solution to secure all their valuable data across all their devices – regardless of the platform – through a single pane of glass.

About AV-Comparatives
AV-Comparatives is an independent organization offering systematic testing that checks whether security software, such as PC/Mac-based antivirus products and mobile security solutions, lives up to its promises. Using one of the largest sample collections worldwide, it creates a real-world environment for truly accurate testing. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions. Certification by AV-Comparatives provides an official seal of approval for software performance which is globally recognized.

The story of AV-Comparatives began the way it does with so many computer users, namely with a virus infection. In 1993, Andreas Clementi was hit by a computer virus: the “November 17 virus – NOV_17.855”. This awakened his interest. Andreas was not satisfied with the sometimes very contradictory tests of antivirus programs in computer magazines, and so began the intensive investigation of malware and antivirus software, which continues to this day. In 1999, he founded AV-Comparatives as a student project at the University of Innsbruck. This was done purely out of technical interest, to see how good the products of different manufacturers actually are. The response was enormous, as the manufacturers of antivirus software became aware of the duo in Innsbruck and wanted to take part in the tests.

Founded in 2012, Rahi Systems is a global provider of IT infrastructure, data center transformation, audio/video, networking, data storage, and security solutions. By including Cobalt Iron’s Compass in its portfolio, Rahi will enable its enterprise clients to take full advantage of modern data protection and progressive technologies such as analytics, automation, hyperconvergence, SaaS, rapid recovery, and infinite scalability.

With a greatly expanded remote workforce representing the “new normal” and security threats on the rise, organizations are finding that one of their most vital assets is at risk: data. At the same time, many enterprises still rely on an overly complex legacy backup infrastructure and traditional backup and recovery methods that are labor-intensive and have a high total cost of ownership. While many enterprise applications benefit from modernization, automation, and SaaS economics, the backup and recovery environment has largely been left to incremental feature improvements.

Complexity is virtually eliminated with Cobalt Iron’s SaaS backup platform, which dramatically reduces the time needed to back up data. Compass is a new approach to data protection, harnessing analytics and automation to drive out cost and complexity while delivering reliable protection and valuable data insights to the business. The result is a comprehensive data protection strategy that is flexible, manageable, and affordable.

“As one of the world’s foremost technology channels, Rahi Systems is a welcome addition to our IronClad Partner Advantage family,” said Chris Snell, senior solutions architect at Cobalt Iron. “This partnership is powerful industry recognition of Compass as the only data protection solution that is truly SaaS-based, multicloud, and analytics-driven, with award-winning security and cyberattack prevention capabilities built natively into the solution. Together with our IPA partners, we’re delivering the most powerful and disruptive data protection solution in the market.”

“Rahi are proud to announce our partnership with Cobalt Iron. Their Compass portfolio further enables companies to take full advantage of modern data protection and progressive technologies such as analytics, automation, and hyperconvergence. We look forward to working with the team,” said Tarun Raisoni, CEO of Rahi.

Teletek Enhances Scalability and Delivers Fully Native S3 Compatibility with Cloudian HyperStore Platform

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 14, 2021 — / — Cloudian® today announced that Teletek, one of Turkey’s most well-established cloud infrastructure service providers, has integrated Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage into its VMware-based cloud services offerings.

Seeing the need to provide a more efficient way of managing, storing and protecting these growing data volumes, Teletek evaluated several object storage providers before choosing Cloudian.

For its initial deployment, Teletek has installed a six-node HyperStore cluster across its three data centers, providing 100 TB of storage capacity. Looking forward, HyperStore provides the flexibility to add extra capacity when required without any service interruption, ensuring that Teletek will always be able to meet its customers’ evolving data storage needs.

“This is just the latest example of how VMware and Cloudian are enabling our Cloud Provider partners to enhance their service offerings, deliver greater value to customers and help grow their business,” said Rajeev Bhardwaj, vice president of products, Cloud Service Business Unit, at VMware. “We look forward to working with Teletek and Cloudian to help enterprises drive their digital transformations more quickly and cost-effectively.”

With a native S3 API, it brings the scalability and flexibility of public cloud storage into the data center while providing ransomware protection and reducing TCO by 60% or more compared to traditional SAN/NAS and public cloud.
