First solidified in the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform nearly a year ago, StoneFly’s Scale-Out Cloud Storage for Veeam Backup evolves to also include Microsoft Azure Government for entities requiring stringent security protocols and certifications

HAYWARD, CA – May 17, 2017 — / — StoneFly, Inc., the original pioneer of the iSCSI protocol, Virtual Storage Appliances, and hyperconverged storage solutions, has expanded its scalable cloud storage for Veeam into the Microsoft Azure Government cloud computing platform for new and existing Veeam customers.

Microsoft Azure for the government has been evolving for years in terms of security and compliance and is now offering unrivaled leadership through its commitment to certifications. Microsoft Azure is compliant with a number of agencies having stringent qualification and validation processes like CJIS, ECSP, FedRAMP, HIPA and IRS1075. In addition to having ATO from FISMA and FedRAMP, Microsoft Azure Government is the first and only hyper-scale cloud provider to meet state-by-state CJIS requirements for infrastructure and productivity in a unique and scalable way.

From a security perspective, Microsoft Azure Government is only accessible by government customers, partners that provide services to government and non-government/federally funded agencies that have the requirement to control data. StoneFly’s unique offerings for government requirements in Microsoft Azure Government include multiple specially designed datacenter locations for disaster recovery, physical management of the perimeter of the datacenter via video surveillance monitoring, and physical/logical network security of the datacenters.

Microsoft, Veeam, and StoneFly have partnered up to offer state-of-the-art backup and disaster recovery solutions for Commercial, Government, and Cloud Service providers. Veeam first teamed up with StoneFly early last year in a joint Technology Alliance Program (TAP) project to develop and offer StoneFly Scale-Out Cloud Storage for Veeam Cloud Connect that is now deployed in Microsoft Azure datacenters across the globe having full integration and optimization with the Veeam Cloud Connect Gateway. Veeam Cloud Connect for the Enterprise (VCC-E), Veeam on-premises, and the StoneFly Cloud combine to provide a complete backup and disaster recovery solution for physical and virtual environments. This solution provides the required capacity, file size, bandwidth, IOPS, shared access, multitenancy, security and active directory integration.

70% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Veeam to ensure 24/7 availability of their data and applications. StoneFly offers backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for on-premise, remote replication, private, public and hybrid cloud. StoneFly’s Scale-Out Cloud Storage allows customers to scale out as their business grows by adding nodes without losing performance and bypassing any storage capacity size constraints that Microsoft Azure might have. As the quantity of StoneFly cloud storage nodes are increased, performance is optimized. Customers can manage multiple cloud storage nodes and repositories with a single user interface making installation, management and scaling simple to achieve at any size. Also, StoneFly supports accessibility to all types of storage resources including block storage (iSCSI), file storage (NAS) and object storage such as page blob, hot blob, and cool blob.

StoneFly’s Scale-Out Cloud Storage for Veeam has been fully integrated with Microsoft Azure Government and offers direct restore to Microsoft Azure. StoneFly uses both enterprise storage and enterprise data services. Enterprise data services include snapshots, encryption, geo-replication, self-healing, and deduplication. Cloud repositories are completely isolated from one another for security. Users can also encrypt backups at the source and while in transit to the cloud for additional security assurance.

The deployment procedure for this unique combination of software, security, and service is simple and can be carried out in a single day. New clients can register online for a free trial and guidance from storage experts. Government agencies are especially encouraged to register for free trials in order to use a certified, easy to provision, reliable, secure, scalable and comprehensive disaster recovery solution.
