The distinctive architecture allows even the most sensitive agencies to move critical workloads into the cloud without fearing ransomware or internal threats

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Nov. 22, 2022 — / / — Panzura LLC, a leader in hybrid-architecture data management, announced today the launch of a new comprehensive data management solution for customers that work in sensitive data environments, such as public sector, healthcare, and financial services. Because the service makes both the snapshots and the data immutable, ransomware attacks can’t damage files in the Panzura global file system. Instead, attacks are shrugged off by quickly reverting to seconds-old data blocks to reassemble uninfected files. Through a new strategic agreement, this new solution, as well as all of Panzura’s other workloads, will run on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“We’ve never lost a file, and we share a common goal to make the world safe for data. Leveraging the scalability of AWS technology stack, we are building a system that will one day make the entire idea of ransomware obsolete”. — JILL STELFOX | CEO OF PANZURA, LLC

Panzura has already been co-marketing Panzura CloudFS with AWS, securing databases for dozens of customers, such as AmeriHome Mortgage, Stoke Space, and Vanguard. Customers working with this solution gained deep integration with AWS services, such as AWS Outposts, easing purchasing and ensuring compatibility across AWS services. Now, users of the new ransomware-resilient data management offering will also enjoy these benefits.

Gartner predicts that 85% of global organizations will embrace a cloud-first strategy by 2025 and can only fully execute their digital transformation strategies using cloud-native architectures and technologies. Panzura’s elegant approach to unstructured data management ensures customers have a high-performance, high-intelligence, ransomware-resilient data environment.

“Rocket data is highly regulated and highly sensitive. We sought out AWS GovCloud and Panzura so our company could deliver quickly, while zeroing out the risk of ransomware. When we’re trying to outpace our competition, we can’t go hours without data due to attacks or infrastructure interruptions”. — BRENT BRADBURY | HEAD OF SOFTWARE FOR STOKE SPACE TECHNOLOGIES

This architecture allows even the most sensitive agencies to move critical workloads to the cloud without fearing ransomware or internal exfiltration threats. The strategic agreement with AWS builds on three joint initiatives: highly-secure data migration, Panzura CloudFS on AWS, and Panzura Data Services. It gives joint customers a competitive advantage when migrating workloads into the cloud and reflects Panzura’s broader company objective to make the world a safer place for data.

“Security continues to be paramount for us and expanding our cloud capabilities for those customers in industries where the bar for compliance and security is set particularly high, has never been more relevant. A key benefit of our collaboration with Panzura is the opportunity to jointly support customers who require this level of data protection, from small businesses to enterprise organizations”. — HOWARD WRIGHT | VP AND GLOBAL HEAD OF STARTUPS AWS

Panzura CloudFS, the 8th generation of Panzura’s award-winning hybrid architecture file system, allows businesses to modernize and simplify their legacy data storage solutions. Panzura’s smart apps offer file consistency, real-time file locking for data integrity, ransomware resilience, and backup snapshots for granular data recovery. The Panzura CloudFS continues to support all cloud or on-premises environments.

Panzura’s team will be attending AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, from November 28 to December 2. Please reach out to Danielle Ahmadi at if you want to schedule some time to learn more about this announcement.

Audio annotations with transcripts can now be attached to any file in the FileShadow Vault, associating commentary with photos, files, medical documents and Collections

PROVO, Utah – November 21, 2022 — / / — FileShadow™ announced today that files in FileShadow can now be annotated with multiple audio recordings and automatically create transcripts of those recordings. The service connects any number of annotations to a file so recordings and transcripts can be reviewed at the same time. Once annotations are attached, the files are associated, regardless of where the content is located.

Using FileShadow’s powerful search engine, users can locate photos/documents by entering keywords found in the audio recordings. Transcripts can be downloaded, shared, and search terms highlighted and viewed while listening to the recording.

Users also have the option to send a link to the photos/documents/recordings so anyone can review the files via their web browser.

“The uses for FileShadow Annotations are especially valuable in the genealogy, family history, medical, legal and creative industries,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “Any group or industry that collaborates on documents, images, videos and other files can use Annotations to get work done faster.”

In genealogy and family history applications, FileShadow Annotations can be used to allow multiple relatives to relate stories about family photos. Genealogists can record Grandma’s comments about family photos. Other family members can also share their comments about that same photo.

In the medical field, a specialist can send a CAT Scan, annotate the scan, and send it to a primary care physician. That physician can record his/her comments about the image for the specialist to review. The specialist can also record his/her comments about the image. All annotations are recorded in FileShadow, regardless of where the files and users are located.

Users annotate a file in a FileShadow Vault on a mobile device by performing these steps:

  • Select the file to be annotated.
  • Select the microphone icon in the menu.
  • Enter a description of the annotation.
  • Press Record and talk about the file.
  • Review the recording if needed.
  • Attach the recording.
  • Listen and review the file and annotations from the web, desktop or mobile apps.

Once annotated, the recording and the file are associated and can be viewed in the FileShadow Vault. Annotations and files can be published to anyone through the FileShadow Website Collection Manager. Users can create Website Collections of any files: documents, photos, videos, etc., along with the annotations, so they can be shared with anyone, regardless of where reviewers are located and whether or not they are FileShadow users. Anyone inside or outside the FileShadow system can also contribute files to Website Collections.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 17, 2022 — / / — Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced the general availability of an enhanced Box app for Zoom that enables customers to automatically save select Zoom recordings directly to Box. With this new feature, joint customers can manage their content in one place while maintaining enterprise-grade security, compliance, and governance all within Zoom.

“This new feature has been one of the most highly requested features by joint Box and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. customers,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “At Box, we continuously strive to improve our integrations with third-party apps so that our users can work smarter, with less clicking and context switching between various platforms, and admins can keep sensitive content unified within one secure platform. With today’s announcement, Box and Zoom’s thousands of joint customers will be able to boost efficiency and productivity, while securely accessing their content from anywhere.”

According to a recent report from Harvard Business Review —, the average worker toggles between different apps and websites nearly 1,200 times a day, spending up to four hours a week reorienting themselves after switching to a new application. Showcased last week at Zoomtopia, this deepened integration between Box and Zoom addresses the pain-point of content fragmentation across business apps, allowing joint customers to create a seamless experience between their content and meetings while preserving the security, compliance, and governance controls customers set in Box.

Now, with the enhanced Box app for Zoom, users can:

  • Seamlessly save Zoom Meeting recordings straight to Box by simply toggling a button.
  • Navigate back to Box to access and share Zoom audio, video and transcripts via the “My Zoom Recordings” folder.
  • Maintain enterprise-grade security, compliance and governance policies by keeping Zoom recordings with all content in Box.
  • Move or edit recordings and assign tasks to files uploaded to the dedicated Zoom recordings folder with Box Relay. Choose how long recordings can be stored with Box Governance.

This update culminates a successful year of innovation between Box and Zoom. Earlier this year, Box launched an integration with Zoom allowing Box to be the default content layer for all Zoom Team Chat channels, which enables customers to store, create, and collaborate with content directly from a Zoom Team Chat channel. Those same channels are also mapped directly to Box folders, making it easy to maintain your organizational folder structure across platforms and allowing users to stay organized right from Zoom.

“We’re thrilled to be strengthening our partnership with Box by deepening the interoperability between our two platforms,” said Arun Janakiraman, Lead Product Manager of Zoom Apps. “With these new enhancements, joint customers have the ability to record and save Zoom Meetings directly in Box, while also allowing Box to be the default content layer for all Zoom Team Chat channels. These continued updates help customers decide how to keep content secure, while making teamwork more streamlined and simplifying the overall experience.”

More information on today’s news can be found on the Box Blog — and customers can download the Box app for Zoom integration from the Zoom App Marketplace here —

About Box
Box (NYSE:BOX) is the leading Content Cloud, a single platform that empowers organizations to manage the entire content lifecycle, work securely from anywhere, and integrate across best-of-breed apps.

Databarracks is pleased to announce that it has been accepted as a supplier on the G-Cloud 13 framework

LONDON, UK – November 18, 2022 — / / — Databarracks provides Resilience and Cloud Services to public sector organisations including: Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, Environment Agency, Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation.

James Watts, Managing Director of Databarracks comments: “The framework comes at a difficult time for government spending and procurement. Efficiency and value for money are critical. The benefits of shorter contracts and nimble SME suppliers can help reduce costs and keep public services delivering.

“The move to G-Cloud 13 has been one of the more significant iterations. G-Cloud 12 was extended multiple times to allow for the transition and the shift to the Crown Commercial Service Public Procurement Gateway.

“For all the good intentions behind G-Cloud, there have always been challenges. G-Cloud 13 has had a rocky start after launching without supplier transparency over the search process, which has rightly received backlash from the supplier community. That feature is promised to be reintroduced shortly. On the buyer side, it is vital they are well-informed about the changes and updates to the programme and new procurement gateway to make sure momentum does not stall between these frameworks.

“In our experience, since G-Cloud was first introduced, the biggest change in buyer interest has been in the hyperscale public clouds, specifically AWS and Microsoft Azure. In the early days of the platform buyers were reticent, but when the hyperscalers showed commitment and opened UK data centre regions there was a turning point. Since then, public cloud adoption in the public sector has rocketed.

“When using the public cloud, there is still a great deal of value to be gained by using specialist cloud service providers to get the most from these platforms.

“Interest has moved from Lots 1 & 2 for Cloud Hosting and Cloud Software to Lot 3 – Cloud Support. That means cloud design and architecture services, on-going DevOps and management. Cost optimisation, capacity and demand management will all be vital to the public sector during this iteration of G-Cloud.”

About Databarracks
Databarracks is the global leader in Public Cloud continuity.

In 2003, we launched one of the world’s first managed Backup services to bring indestructible resilience to mission critical data.

Today, we deliver award-winning IT resilience and continuity services. We help organisations get the most out of the cloud and protect their data, wherever it lives.

And we back this up with unbeatable support. There’s no such thing as ‘above and beyond’ for our engineers because they only work to one standard: to keep your systems running perfectly.

Enterprise-class continuity, security and resilience. Accessible for all.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares Inc., a banking company in Texas, saves thousands of dollars in yearly data protection software renewal costs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – November 18, 2022 — / / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Texas Peoples National Bancshares Inc. has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares provides a full range of commercial banking services to customers in the state of Texas. The company’s products and services include investments, financing, cards, insurance, remote banking, personal banking, and direct deposit.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares operates out of three sites with 1 physical server and 22 virtual machines. Virtual machines store the company’s critical data like documents, spreadsheets, and databases. The company runs financial applications to support teller functions, account opening, and instant issuing of debit cards. Virtual machines also run an email server, a telephone system, and collaboration applications. Maintaining uninterrupted access to critical data and applications that support the organization and their customers is of the utmost importance. Protecting data with the help of a VM backup solution ensures data availability and business continuity.

Previously, the company relied on a different VM backup solution for data availability. Recovery with the previous solution was slow, there were daily failed jobs or backup hangs. The main criteria for choosing a new solution were speed, efficiency, reliability, and cost.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication stood out from the competition due to the solution’s extensive functionality set and multiple deployment options. The solution can protect virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments with incremental and application-aware backups. The solution provides complete visibility via a unified dashboard for all data protection activities and workloads. Moreover, deployment is easy and flexible with a range of options: installation on Windows/Linux, as a pre-configured virtual appliance, or on NAS.

“Installing and configuring NAKIVO Backup & Replication was a breeze. The web interface is simple, intuitive, and responsive. Since the solution offered integration with Synology NAS, we took advantage of this functionality, and we really enjoy the portability and unification of both hardware and software,” says Pat Watson, Vice President/CTO at Texas Peoples National Bancshares.

“Backing up our entire environment takes nearly four hours, while incremental backups take about 50 minutes,” says Pat. “We enjoy fully automated backups that reduce administrative complexity and time spent on data protection. We do not experience issues anymore with stuck or hung backups.”

“In the past, recovery was a long and exhausting process for us. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we can recover entire VMs, files, and application objects directly from backups. Thus, we have minimized time for recovery dramatically,” says Pat.

“We also take advantage of backup copy functionality and VM replication. We keep an extra copy of our backups for archival purposes. And with VM replication, we always have a VM replica available for disaster recovery purposes,” says Pat.

“The simplicity, elegance, and complete functionality set is unmatched at the price point that NAKIVO provides its customers,” says Pat. “Our backups are portable, fast, and more reliable than ever before. NAKIVO Backup & Replication has saved us thousands of dollars in yearly renewal costs and eliminated countless hours we used to spend on maintaining our old solution,” says Pat. “With the previous solution, we struggled to complete offsite replication due to limited bandwidth between our sites. We no longer have this problem with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.”

READING, England – Nov. 17, 2022 — / / — Redstor, the smart, cloud-first backup platform of choice for MSPs, today announced the availability of Backup for QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop, a service to protect and recover application data vital to small and medium-sized business (SMBs). Intuit’s QuickBooks is the market’s leading accounting software, supporting more than 8 million users worldwide. With its powerful performance and low cost, Redstor Backup for QuickBooks fills data protection gaps in the software, enabling MSPs to provide SMBs with a crucial safety net and open a new revenue stream with healthy margins.

“QuickBooks is the heart of SMBs but none of the product tiers include backup and recovery except the most expensive option,” said Rob Glass of Computer Systems Plus, a participant in Redstor’s Backup for QuickBooks beta program. “If a hacker gets in or a disgruntled employee releases malicious code, an SMB could lose months of financial data, tax and compliance details, employee records and more. Redstor eliminates this risk at a nominal cost, giving MSPs like us access to a huge market with a service that offers tremendous margins.”

Redstor options cover all QuickBooks pricing plans, including native recovery. MSPs can recover directly back to QuickBooks production and sandbox/developer environments. Redstor’s InstantData™ technology streams information in the most compatible form possible, so customers can recover and begin using this critical data in seconds versus hours or days, all while less vital files restore behind the scenes.

Additional highlights of Redstor Backup for QuickBooks include:

  • Easy Compliance: Enables businesses to meet standards such as IRS 4557 & SOC2. In highly regulated industries, an independent backup and recovery platform provides the easiest, most cost effective way to meet compliance.
  • Single Interface: One interface protects and manages all data sources, from native infrastructure (Azure and AWS) to major SaaS offerings like Microsoft 365 and Salesforce. It even covers legacy backup such as on premise servers and company laptops.
  • Fast Fixes: With multiple people using QuickBooks Online, data can be changed simultaneously, introducing errors. Redstor not only gives admins a safety net, it provides instant, granular item restore to rapidly fix any issue.
  • Time and Money Savings: A common source of data loss are finance team changes to the production environment in QuickBooks. With Redstor, admins can use real backup data in their sandbox to verify and validate any changes before pushing them into production.
  • Automated Processes: QuickBooks operates on a shared responsibility model that protects users from incidents such as platform outages, but not ransomware, malicious or accidental data deletion/loss. Automatic and on-demand backup processes make sure all bases are covered.
  • Simplicity and Low Cost of Ownership: QuickBooks’ only backup and data restoration requires users to provide and manage external storage. Redstor’s all-in-one solution eliminates that operational and cost burden, with experts overseeing every step of the journey.

“This solves a major SMB issue while creating new revenue for MSPs at a price point that assures maximum profitability,” said Redstor Product Manager, Dan Boddington. “Downtime means lost revenue. Slow recovery means missed opportunity. Missing data ruins reputations. With Redstor Backup for QuickBooks, this vital business data is safe and quickly recoverable, and the profits stay with our MSPs.”

About Redstor
Redstor offers MSPs the smartest backup and recovery platform along with leading sales, marketing and technical support. Built for the cloud and fast to scale, the Redstor platform unifies the protection of cloud infrastructure, SaaS business applications and on-prem data via a single app (RedApp), delivering market-leading revenue retention, bigger margins and simple pricing to MSPs.

Breakthrough streaming technology offers instant data access and mobility, bringing users back in seconds after outages, whilst unlocking all the benefits of a cloud-first model. Artificial intelligence (AI) polices backups to identify and isolate malware for safe restores. With no hardware requirements and setup times of under 60 seconds, Redstor is purpose-built for the MSP growth agenda.

Latest release leverages flash, cloud-native monitoring, easy Veeam and vCloud integration for increased performance, efficiency and adaptability

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Nov. 17, 2022 — / / — Scality announced today RING9 — the ninth generation of its leading RING scale-out file and object storage software — a solution that allows IT teams to build and run a modern hybrid-cloud data storage infrastructure with higher performance and efficiency.

RING9 is built on major investments in Scality’s flagship RING solution that enables IT teams to:

  • Fully leverage flash media through tiering and dynamic data protection policies
  • Modernize monitoring stack with Prometheus tools and APIs
  • Streamline integration with API extensions to ecosystem partners such as Veeam and VMware Cloud Director (VCD)

With these new capabilities, RING9 further enhances and simplifies scale-out file and object storage for enterprises building private and hybrid cloud storage services with comprehensive AWS S3 and IAM compatibility.

Click to Tweet: @Scality RING9 adds performance, efficiency to #HybridCloud #DataStorage:

“Scality is a strategic object storage provider we trust to house our customer’s data. Over the last several years, we’ve partnered closely with Scality to build a scalable and sovereign cloud service,” explained Laurent Cheyssial, CTO at Jaguar Network. “With the comprehensive AWS-compatible S3 API and user security management in RING9, we now have the flexibility to offer our customers cloud backup services for a wide variety of workloads while keeping data secure.”

“Scality continues to innovate in scale-out object and file storage as evidenced by its new multi-tiering capability. This new feature enables high performance with low-latency flash and increases storage efficiency with tiering as data ages. This will improve usages such as backups and medical imaging, as well as new latency-sensitive workloads in media by automatically optimizing data placement,” said Randy Kerns, senior strategist and analyst at Evaluator Group.

Building on proven world-class enterprise and service provider deployments since 2010, RING9 enhancements are focused on:

High performance and storage efficiency: RING9 augments its use of the latest generations of flash media through the Storage Accelerator (SA), a powerful multi-level tiering capability. This enables dynamic tiering and data protection policies for ultra-fast IO to hot storage tiers via low-latency NVMe flash — with automated movement of data to increasingly more cost-effective tiers on lower-cost flash, such as quad-level cell (QLC), or on traditional hard disk drives (HDD). These enhancements expand the addressable markets and use cases for RING9, and enable IT teams to address Tier 1, latency-sensitive workloads in media streaming, medical imaging and big data analytics that previously required a separate resource.

Modern stack administration: RING9 brings monitoring into the modern cloud-native data center, with the integration of a new stack based on Prometheus and AlertManager, a new comprehensive UI dashboard with user actionable alerting. In addition, the Scality Cloud Monitor now enhances remote monitoring and observability for both customers and Scality’s premium Scale Care Services support offerings.

Ecosystem integration: RING9 streamlines the integration of its ecosystem partner products into a customer’s architecture, with support for:

  • New APIs for enhanced monitoring, reporting and data placement in solutions from ecosystem partners such as Veeam and others
  • Enhanced VMware vCloud (vCD) integration, including production use in existing real-world service provider deployments
  • More comprehensive AWS IAM-compatible bucket policies to tighten security and access control

Paul Speciale, chief marketing officer at Scality, said: “As IT teams embrace the modern stack architecture, they need solutions that eliminate challenges in enterprise data management and storage in the hybrid cloud. Scality RING9 represents a major step change for the entire storage industry. Users gain improvements in storage efficiency through internal flash-to-disk tiering and dynamic data protection policies. For modern cloud-based data centers, RING9 fits naturally into the monitoring and observability ecosystem with support for Prometheus and Elastic Cloud. RING9 expands the addressable market and use-case workloads for RING further into the high-performance arena.”

Publication Recognizes Asigra Tigris Data Protection with Advanced CDR Capabilities

TORONTO, ON – November 16, 2022 — / / — Asigra Inc., a leader in ultra-secure backup and recovery, is announcing that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Asigra as a Finalist for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. CRN recognized Asigra for the company’s Tigris Data Protection software in the Data Protection Software category.

This annual award program celebrates innovative vendors in the IT channel across 38 different technology categories, in critical business areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. The selection process for this year’s winners was overseen by a panel of CRN editors and is based on a review of hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria. These include key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and best fit with customer and solution provider needs.

Asigra Tigris Data Protection provides advanced protection against ransomware with a six-layer security stack designed to fight the new breeds of ransomware. Modern attacks target backups and easily penetrate legacy backup security strategies like immutability and air-gapping. Today’s ransomware attacks utilize sleeper / trojan-horse attacks that employ dormant ransomware or deeply embedded malware which easily bypasses endpoint security. The files along with the hidden malware is then simply backed up into the immutable and air-gapped backup repositories. The malware lies in wait on the network for weeks or months before triggering the encryption attack. Unfortunately, when the response team reaches for their last line of defense, their backups, they find that they are infected also.

Asigra Tigris is the only backup solution utilizing both bidirectional antimalware scanning and bidirectional CDR scanning to stop the sleeper attacks that routinely penetrate immutable and air-gapped storage. Additionally, Tigris protects against credential theft which allows attackers to delete immutable storage by simply changing data retention periods from years to minutes, just prior to network encryption. DeepMFA requires biometric authentication and multi-person authorization for any destructive actions.

“Our CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize those technology vendors that are making the biggest impacts in digital transformation for solutions providers with unique, cutting-edge products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It is my pleasure to congratulate each and every one of our 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We’re delighted to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”

“Now globally deployed throughout the Asigra partner ecosystem, Tigris Data Protection software has been acclaimed as the industry’s most comprehensive backup security platform, setting the bar in this category,” said Eric Simmons, CEO, Asigra. “We applaud our development team for their excellent work in helping businesses of every size defend against the widest range of ransomware variants targeting backup data.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at

Nasuni for Azure Blob Storage delivers the best choice for storing, protecting and accessing files

BOSTON, MA – November 16, 2022 — / / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services and Microsoft Gold partner, is simplifying the process for enterprises to migrate data into cloud-native file data services in Azure Blob Storage as Microsoft prepares to end support for StorSimple on Dec. 31, 2022. Nasuni, a premier MS Azure partner, is available in the Azure Customer Portal and counts toward Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitments (MACC).

“As end-of-life approaches for Microsoft Azure StorSimple, Nasuni is ready to help organizations move their data into a cloud-native service that provides the scalability and performance on which customers have depended,” said Jason DePardo, vice president of customer success at Nasuni. “But Nasuni provides much more than just scalable storage. Customers also get automatic backup and disaster recovery (DR), global file sharing, a global lock and multi-cloud access. It’s a modern file storage solution for modern enterprises, and migration from StorSimple is easy and fast.”

Nasuni has migrated several StorSimple customers already this year, including AIMCO, Pruitt Health, Blackmores, BJ’s and TGI Fridays. TGI Fridays — who chose Nasuni to replace StorSimple in anticipation of the end of Microsoft support — experienced a painless migration without heavy users noticing a difference. Additionally, because Nasuni stores data so efficiently, the company saved 20% on Azure cloud costs.

“You can sell the capabilities and cost savings, but in terms of how to make the changes and actually run the platform, IT teams might be out of their element,” said Michael Oehlert, infrastructure team lead at TGI Fridays. “The Nasuni team was instrumental in terms of getting this done without anyone noticing. They always knew what was going on and how to make it work.”

The Nasuni File Data Platform, backed by low-cost Azure Blob object storage, is a customer-managed, highly available, enterprise-grade file service. Additionally, like StorSimple, it provides an easy-to-manage solution for unlimited capacity and massive scalability with excellent performance. Nasuni can accomplish this, plus offer additional, powerful capabilities without increasing costs over StorSimple. Nasuni can also be deployed fully in Azure or as a hybrid cloud deployment with on-premises caching for high-performance file access in any location.

These additional capabilities include:

  • Multi-Site Access: Nasuni enables StorSimple customers to share their data with users across multiple locations, which are able to store, access, share, and synchronize files across an unlimited number of users and sites.
  • Unlimited Capacity for File Shares: Unlike StorSimple, the Nasuni File Data Platform keeps all files and file changes in Azure Blob storage, so file shares can be any size.
  • Automatic Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) with Fast Restore: Using a patented feature called “Continuous File Versioning®,” Nasuni stores all file changes in Azure Blob storage, which automates data protection and eliminates the need for a separate investment in backup software and hardware. Recovery is also fast, enabling IT to restore lost files or even entire volumes in just minutes.
  • Global File Sharing with a Global Lock: People from around the globe can collaborate on even very large files, with a global lock that ensures version control.
  • Multi-Cloud Support: Nasuni can also leverage Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and any other cloud that provides an object store.

Migration is fast and simple. Nasuni’s professional service teams and certified partners can rapidly migrate StorSimple data into Azure (or other) object storage without interrupting ongoing operations or impeding access. Nasuni provides a full range of offerings ranging from assisted to full migration, using state-of-the-art procedures and tools.

With end-of-life for StorSimple quickly approaching, Microsoft is encouraging customers to establish migration plans. For more information on how Nasuni can help, check out our StorSimple resource page —

According to the inaugural State of Data Security Report from Rubrik Zero Labs, 92% of global IT and Security leaders are concerned they are unable to maintain business continuity during an attack. In addition, the report found that a third of boards have little to no confidence in their organization’s ability to recover critical data and business applications in the event of a cyberattack. Organizations today need a simple way to quickly test recovery plans and investigate threats without delaying the restoration of business critical operations.

“It’s essential that we have confidence in our data recovery plan,” said Dan Gallivan, Director of IT at Payette, an award-winning architecture firm. “With Rubrik, we can now prepare, verify our preparation with auditors, and safely recover in the event of a cyberattack. This peace of mind is critical not just for our IT and Security teams, but the organization as a whole.”

Rubrik Cyber Recovery empowers IT and Security teams to:

  • Validate Whether Cyber Recovery Plans Will Work: Rubrik Cyber Recovery enables customers to easily test, validate, and document the success of their cyber recovery plans while tracking performance metrics to ensure their organization is prepared to meet recovery SLAs. Customers can test whether their recovery playbook works, including sequence, timing, and failure points. They can download reports about recovery performance on-demand to prove that regular testing of cyber recovery capabilities is taking place.
  • Clone Backup Snapshots For Faster Security Testing: Rubrik Cyber Recovery enables organizations to assess cyber readiness faster through the ability to quickly clone snapshots into isolated environments. This allows customers to perform destructive tests more easily, thereby enhancing their organization’s cyber readiness.
  • Conduct Forensic Investigations in Parallel to Recovery: Rubrik Cyber Recovery allows organizations to conduct forensic investigations on infected snapshots in isolated environments while they restore business continuity quickly using a last known good snapshot.

“IT and security teams are faced with increasing pressure to ensure they can recover from a cyberattack, and yet boards and leadership teams lack confidence in their ability to do so,” said Dan Rogers, President of Rubrik. “Rubrik Cyber Recovery can help boost board and leadership confidence by not only enabling organizations to achieve safer, predictable recovery from cyber events, but also enabling IT and Security teams to prove preparedness. These advancements in Rubrik Security Cloud continue to strengthen customers’ defenses in securing their data.”

Extending Data Observability Support to the Cloud
Rubrik also announced today both Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation and Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management will support Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint, NAS Cloud Direct, and Azure Virtual Machines. As a result, organizations can gain more visibility into ransomware impact and sensitive data exposure within high-risk, cloud-based workloads. Rubrik continues to expand its capabilities to even more cloud workloads, helping customers protect all of their data across the enterprise, cloud, and SaaS.

Customers who migrate to Wasabi hot cloud storage can save up to 80% on storage costs compared to Amazon S3, Azure, and Google Cloud

BOSTON, MA — November 15, 2022 — / / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today introduced Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager, the industry’s most affordable and highest performing cloud migration tool that allows businesses globally to move their data out of expensive hyperscale cloud environments like AWS S3 to Wasabi without egress fees or downtime. It also delivers seamless replication and synchronization of data between different Wasabi regions to reduce latency, meet compliance requirements, and foster best practices for data backup and recovery. Customers benefit from the flexibility of shifting data between clouds at any time, the ability to protect copies of data in different regions while increasing their cloud data performance and response time, and reducing overall storage costs.

Skyrocketing cloud prices and the current economic climate are leading many businesses to tighten their budgets and look for more affordable cloud storage solutions. However, exorbitant costs associated with cloud-to-cloud migration, like egress and data retrieval fees, and technical infrastructure challenges to migrate data back on premise and then to a new cloud, force many to stay locked into their current vendor.

Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager bypasses the high costs and technical hurdles associated with cloud-to-cloud migration. It uses private network connections to migrate data from AWS, Azure, GCP, and other S3 compliant storage directly to Wasabi. This reduces egress costs from those providers, avoids internet latency and bottlenecks, and provides fast and predictable performance that lets users rapidly move massive datasets. Data is transferred with no downtime, enabling customers to continue putting data into their original cloud quickly, and without stopping the data transfer. Meanwhile, the bucket replication feature allows customers to copy objects from a storage bucket in a specific Wasabi region to a different bucket in another Wasabi storage region. This is ideal for adding an extra layer of data protection, meeting compliance and sovereignty requirements, or minimizing latency.

Wasabi hot cloud storage is significantly less expensive and markedly faster than AWS S3 and similar providers, meaning it can be universally applied to any storage use case such as active archiving, backup, disaster recovery, storage for a custom application (active data), and more. At 1/5th the cost of hyperscalers, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in, businesses are able to securely and affordably store all of their data and access it the moment they need to without complex pricing tiers. Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager helps users take advantage of lower-cost storage as quickly as possible and start saving money right away.

“Wasabi’s singular focus is to deliver the best cloud storage in the world, and Cloud Sync Manager marks the next step in our mission,” said David Boland, vice president of cloud strategy at Wasabi Technologies. “Companies in the past may have wanted to leave their cloud provider, but couldn’t afford to. Now, Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager allows customers to switch to the more affordable and higher performing Wasabi hot cloud storage for just pennies per GB, depending on the data source and geographical region, and start saving money immediately.”

About Wasabi Technologies
Wasabi provides simple, predictable and affordable hot cloud storage for businesses all over the world. It enables organizations to store and instantly access an unlimited amount of data at 1/5th the price of the competition with no complex tiers or unpredictable egress fees. Trusted by tens of thousands of customers worldwide, Wasabi has been recognized as one of technology’s fastest-growing and most visionary companies. Created by Carbonite co-founders and cloud storage pioneers David Friend and Jeff Flowers, Wasabi is a privately held company based in Boston.

Latest data protection capabilities help accelerate customer’s cloud journey with 1-click support for Azure Government Cloud, enhanced data security with NIAP Certification Readiness and Cross-Cloud mobility options

BOSTON, MA – November 15, 2022 — / / — HYCU, Inc., the world’s fastest-growing multi-cloud data protection as a service company, today announced new functionality within its HYCU Protégé platform to accelerate customers’ cloud mobility with the addition of new support for Azure Government Cloud and cross-cloud migration. The additions provide customers the ability to do 1-click spin-up of Applications onto Azure Gov Cloud, protect data on commercial and Government clouds and spin down the data from Gov Cloud onto local on-prem infrastructure. In addition, with new security and cross-cloud migration capabilities, customers have a cost-effective and efficient platform to support data mobility from on-premises environments to public clouds and within public clouds.

With the additional complexity that comes with increased adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, the ability to easily move data between infrastructure platforms without risking data loss is critical. Organizations choose these infrastructures to gain flexibility and agility, but without the ability to safely move workloads and data, organizations are unable to maximize the value of their investments in hybrid and multi-cloud and risk being negatively impacted by data loss.

“It has been exciting to see Federal agencies, among many of our customers, ramp up the use of Cloud technologies and accelerate their journey to the public cloud,” said HYCU Founder and CEO Simon Taylor. “HYCU is excited to announce true, cloud-native support for Azure Government Cloud as well as additional flexibility and choice. The HYCU Protégé platform updates that we are announcing not only allow customers 1-click migration to Azure Gov Cloud, but also allow them to do 1-click protection of their applications and data on Azure Gov Cloud. With enhanced security and mobility features for cross-cloud migration, we at HYCU believe in building purpose-built solutions that our customers can use to optimize their data protection needs regardless of cloud platform, and this is yet one more significant proof point in moving that forward.”

The latest updates to the HYCU Protégé platform provide customers with additional data protection capabilities designed to deliver flexibility and choice for hybrid and multi-cloud customers.

Additional functionality includes:

  • Mobility and Protection of Workloads on Azure Government Cloud: Customers can now rest assured that their data on Azure Gov Cloud can be backed up, restored to different regions, and even perform DR to a different region with Azure Gov. All this can be done safely within their own control, without having to worry about a third-party having access to their data.
  • Disaster recovery to AWS: Customers can now leverage HYCU Protégé to achieve cost-effective disaster recovery into AWS.  Whether leveraging AWS as a backup target or protecting AWS native workloads, HYCU Protégé now enables customers to quickly failover into AWS and continue business operations without interruption.  Additionally, HYCU Protégé minimizes infrastructure cost in AWS with its on-demand disaster recovery, only spinning up those resources when needed.
  • Cross-cloud restore and recovery: Customers can now protect data onto any S3 compatible cost-efficient public storage provider, like Wasabi, and DR to any public cloud of their choice. This allows them to eliminate the need to provide DR functionality only for a small dataset, i.e., allows for rapid recovery across the entire data set when needed.
  • Expanded options for Edge and Remote Office Backup: Now HYCU allows customers to half their infrastructure required in the edge and remote office locations by eliminating the need for full data protection infrastructure in every one of those locations and leveraging the public cloud storage targets.
  • Enhanced Security with Strictest Regulations: With NIAP Certification, HYCU Protégé meets the stringent certification requirements mandated by US Federal procurement requirements (CNSSP 11) for use in U.S. National Security Systems (NSS). Customers have the peace of mind that sensitive information has the appropriate measures in place to keep data secure.
  • New integrations: The latest update provides customers additional flexibility by expanding supported technology integrations to include Scality S3 WORM, Nutanix AOS 6.5 LTS, Nutanix Objects 3.5 and Qstar v7.  The addition of secure storage options and backup targets provides customers with additional optionality to bolster their data protection and ransomware preparedness.

This announcement comes on the heels of HYCU’s Series B funding in June 2022 which accelerated investment in delivering innovative data protection solutions, as well as the August launch of a free tier of HYCU Protégé for AWS which serves to make data protection simple and accessible to the most agile development teams.

Alliance Ushers in New Era in Security, Combining Best-in-Class Innovations from Security and Data Management Leaders

SAN JOSE, Calif. — November 15, 2022 — / / — Cohesity, a leader in data security and management, today announced at ReConnect, Cohesity’s data security and management summit, that it is partnering with the ‘who’s who’ of cybersecurity to give customers more ways to win the war against cyberattacks.

The Data Security Alliance combines best-in-class solutions from industry leading cybersecurity and services companies with exceptional data security and management expertise from Cohesity. Partners in the ecosystem include: BigID, Cisco, CrowdStrike, CyberArk, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, Securonix, Splunk, and Tenable, with new security advisory relationships with Mandiant and PwC.

Security complexities cannot be solved by one vendor alone. According to research commissioned by Cohesity, nearly half of organizations (47%) were hit by ransomware attacks in the first half of 2022.

When an organization is the victim of an attack, companies want to detect and stop the attack as soon as possible, avoid paying the ransom, and if necessary, recover core business operations as quickly as possible. To achieve these goals requires close collaboration and integration of security and data management solutions and services.

This new Data Security Alliance collectively brings together the boldest solutions and the brightest minds in security to provide customers with a comprehensive approach that integrates data protection and resilience into an end-to-end security strategy. This strategy starts at prevention, extends to early detection and protection and also includes rapid recovery — critical in the event of a cyberattack.

“Today’s non-stop and increasingly sophisticated cyber threats require an all-hands-on-deck approach. It’s not the responsibility of one vendor to solve all cybersecurity challenges, it takes a village to fight the bad guys. That’s why, out of the gate, we’re starting with multiple best-of-breed security partners, with tens of billions in market cap, who are serving thousands of customers globally,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO and president, Cohesity.

“As a leader in data security and management, we are partnering with these industry heavyweights so they can leverage our platform, the Cohesity Data Cloud, to help customers easily integrate data security and resilience into their overall security strategy. This not only helps enterprises better protect against the threat of cyberattacks but brings together CIOs and CISOs to the collaboration table to fight cybercrime in ways not seen before in our industry,” Poonen added.

“We at CrowdStrike believe frictionless data security is critical to drive business value for our customers. We continuously work to ensure that organizations with their endpoints, workloads and users continue to operate without obstacles, while data is continuously secured against breaches and insider threats, including ransomware exfiltration,” said Michael Rogers, vice president of global alliances at CrowdStrike. “We’re pleased to join this alliance and team up with Cohesity to help organizations strengthen their cyber resilience, in the face of evolving sophisticated adversaries.”

“To any organization hit by a cyberattack, backup environments must be free of security risks – the last thing an organization needs in an emergency situation is to introduce new risk,” said Ray Komar, vice president of technical alliances, Tenable. “Tenable’s Exposure Management capabilities and Cohesity’s data security and management platform deliver complete visibility across the modern attack surface, including backup environments, so customers can reduce their overall risk and improve their resiliency.”

“The Cohesity + Cortex XSOAR value is strong, with the bi-directional flow of data and commands to rapidly detect and respond to ransomware,” said Pamela Cyr, vice president Technical Partnerships, Palo Alto Networks. “Cohesity confirms infection, and the Cortex XSOAR automation platform manages the enrichment and initiates a safe restore of business-critical data. We’re happy to be a part of this growing ecosystem.”

Partners will be able to leverage the Cohesity Data Cloud in a variety of ways to help joint customers advance their security posture. For example, with Cohesity, partners can leverage Cohesity’s AI-based anomaly detection to gain early insights that an attack may be in progress and accelerate response and remediation. Cohesity’s API-first approach makes it incredibly easy for security partners to join the alliance and integrate their solutions with Cohesity’s data security and management platform — essential as the battle to defeat cyberattacks continues to evolve.

Additional details on the partners can be found below: 

  • BigID: Drives visibility and control for all sensitive & critical data helping organizations understand and minimize data risk across the cloud & on-prem with a data-first approach – for data security, privacy, compliance, and governance.
  • Cisco: SecureX is a cloud-native solution with XDR capabilities that integrates the Cisco Secure portfolio with the entire security infrastructure, speeding detection, response, and recovery. When a ransomware attack strikes, customers can initiate workflows for Cohesity to restore data and workloads.
  • CrowdStrike: Secures the most critical areas of enterprise risk – endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data – to keep customers ahead of today’s adversaries and stop breaches.
  • CyberArkThe CyberArk Identity Security Platform enables unparalleled protection of any identity – human or machine – across the widest range of devices and environments from a single, comprehensive platform.
  • Mandiant: Industry-leading threat intelligence and expertise drive dynamic solutions that help organizations develop more effective programs and instill confidence in their cyber readiness.
  • Okta: The leading independent identity provider offers platform and services for workforce identity and customer identity.
  • Palo Alto Networks: Cortex XSOAR provides the automation and flexibility that allows enterprises to more quickly manage cyber and ransomware attacks.
  • PwC UK: Offers a full suite of advisory, implementation and managed security services to enable organizations to build their cyber security defenses and respond effectively to cyberattacks.
  • SecuronixDelivers a solution to defend against advanced threats in today’s complex hybrid environments. Securonix Next-Gen SIEM is powered by the most advanced analytics and built on a scalable, flexible cloud-native architecture.
  • Splunk: Provides an extensible data platform that delivers unified security, full-stack observability, and custom applications.
  • TenableEmpowers organizations to understand and reduce their cyber risk by providing visibility across the entire attack surface. powers Cohesity’s CyberScan to easily assess data backup environments, which can be used as a proxy for sensitive production environments as well as ensure that a recovery situation does not introduce vulnerable conditions into production.

“Cybercriminals continue to up their game, often attacking backups in an effort to neutralize an organization’s options and increase leverage for their ransom demands,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO of Mandiant. “At a time of ever-increasing cyber threats, it’s critical that cybersecurity, data security and management companies work hand-in-hand to collaborate and keep bad actors at bay. We’re thrilled to be part of this security alliance.”

“A major concern of our customers is the increase in the number and severity of ransomware attacks. These destructive attacks have highlighted the importance of organizations not just having strong protection but coupling it with a comprehensive backup and recovery capability,” said Richard Horne, Partner, PwC UK. “Working alongside Cohesity helps us offer an end-to-end strategy to not only protect our customers against cyberattacks, but to quickly recover their core business operations should they fall victim to a successful attack.”

“The Data Security Alliance is an important step towards ensuring customers are better equipped to defend and recover from cyberattacks. Cohesity’s approach to integrate the Cohesity platform with key security providers with an API-first strategy is absolutely the best method to increase protection for customers,” said Randy Kerns, Senior Strategist and Analyst for Evaluator Group. “The incessant threat of ransomware makes it imperative that cybersecurity, data security and management vendors collaborate to provide customers with a solution to identify, prevent, protect, and recover data in the event of an attack.”

DataHawk Combines Cyber Vaulting, Threat Intelligence and Scanning, and ML-Powered Data Classification for Powerful Protection Against Today’s and Tomorrow’s Cyberattacks

SAN JOSE, Calif. – November 15, 2022 — / / — Cohesity, a leader in data security and management, today announced Cohesity DataHawk, a data security software as a service (SaaS) solution that is focused on helping customers protect, detect, and recover from cyber and ransomware attacks.

DataHawk combines three critical security capabilities into one SaaS solution: threat protection via scans for attack indicators and malware; ML-based data classification that provides high accuracy in identifying and detecting sensitive or critical data; and award winning cyber vaulting via Cohesity FortKnox.

With this data-centric approach, DataHawk enables organizations to easily protect, detect, and recover from ransomware or other cyberattacks. DataHawk includes the following key capabilities: 

  • Threat protection that can save the day: DataHawk incorporates a deep learning-based ransomware detection engine. It also provides intelligent threat protection with rapid scanning for anomalies, potential threats, and other indicators of a ransomware attack. DataHawk integrates a set of highly curated and managed IOC (Indicators of Compromise) threat feeds that are updated daily.
  • Data classification to quickly assess impact: When under attack, organizations want to rapidly understand any potential impact to their valuable data. DataHawk is leveraging the exceptional classification technology from BigID to accurately discover and classify large sets of data at scale to help minimize risk, improve their security posture, and understand the impact of an attack. Customers can save time chasing false positives and reach resolution faster with more than 200 built-in classifiers and ML-driven algorithms to analyze, tag, categorize, label, and classify data sets. Predefined policies for data privacy and protection regulations like the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR), “Payment Card Industry” (PCI), and “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act” (HIPAA) help organizations quickly identify and prioritize these sensitive data sets.
  • Cyber vaulting that provides data recovery and resiliency when it’s needed most: Organizations should always keep separate copies of their critical apps and data as part of a 3-2-1 strategy to build cyber resiliency. With Cohesity FortKnox, included in DataHawk, customers can secure an offsite copy of data in a modern cloud-based cyber vaulting service, where data is kept out of the hands of bad actors via a virtual air gap. Stored data can be recovered from this Cohesity-managed cloud vault back to the original source location or alternate targets, including the public cloud.

Another benefit that customers will realize with DataHawk is a growing list of integrations with today’s leading cyber security vendors that are helping IT and security build a modern automated security operations center (SOC). Leveraging Cohesity’s API-first extensible platform, DataHawk is designed to integrate with leading SIEM vendors including, for example, select vendors joining Cohesity in the Data Security Alliance.

“Over-stretched IT and security teams are constantly trying to manage a sea of infrastructure while working night and day to stay ahead of bad actors,” said Mohit Aron, founder and chief technology and product officer, Cohesity. “The key to keeping businesses running is minimizing the impact of a potential breach, bringing data security directly into the operational workflow, securing data at the source, and restoring critical workloads rapidly — while enabling IT and security teams to spend time on other business-critical tasks. This is what DataHawk is all about.”

“Minimizing the impact of cyberattacks and ransomware is essential for keeping business operations running optimally. This requires classifying the data that matters most to the organization, as well as quickly identifying attack indicators and rapidly restoring workloads,” said Jennifer Glenn, Research Director for Information and Data Security at IDC. “Integrating data classification and recovery capabilities via a SaaS platform, such as DataHawk from Cohesity, can help reduce the workload on IT and security teams and help them stay ahead of cyber attackers.”

“Cybercrime is an ever-increasing threat to businesses, and we need the best solutions and technologies to protect our client base,” said Chris Konrad/WWT. “The breadth and depth of Cohesity’s security ecosystem is impressive and helps solve some of the biggest challenges our customers face. Combined with rich threat protection, detection, and recovery capabilities provided by DataHawk we are more confident than ever that we have a solution that helps secure and extract more value from our customers’ data.”


DataHawk adds to the company’s portfolio of SaaS offerings that are managed by Cohesity and hosted on AWS. It is currently available for early access preview from the Cohesity Data Cloud platform with general availability planned in the coming months.

Solution is easy-to-use, affordable and helps detect threats that evade other defenses

Norwalk, Conn. – November 15, 2022 – — / / — Datto, the leading global provider of security and cloud-based software solutions purpose-built for managed service providers (MSPs), has just introduced Datto EDR. Developed to provide highly effective endpoint detection and response capabilities, Datto EDR is tailored for today’s MSPs and small to midsize businesses (SMBs) in an affordable, easy to use, manage and deploy package.

Having the right cybersecurity tools in place is more important than ever. Year-over-year ransomware attacks increased by 92.7% and the average cost of an attack on a small business was $8,000 per hour from the time of attack to the time of remediation. Most endpoint detection and response tools require skilled and trained security analysts, who are in high demand and short supply, but Datto EDR uses MITRE ATT&CK framework to provide helpful clarity to teams, reducing the security expertise needed to effectively respond.

“Standard security tools aren’t enough anymore,” said Chris McKie, VP of Product Marketing for Security and Networking Solutions. “Threat actors have found ways to circumvent traditional security measures, making EDR tools more important than ever for catching suspicious activity and keeping businesses safe from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.”

Nearly all EDR products are designed and built for enterprise, which means they’re often costly and highly complex, requiring a team of highly trained security experts to effectively manage it. Without this trained staff, many organizations have been left without effective EDR tools.

Datto EDR has been specially built to help MSPs who want to improve their security posture and expand their security offerings to their SMB customers. This highly effective tool provides additional layers of endpoint security by detecting suspicious behaviors that sophisticated threat actors leverage to bypass when using traditional antivirus. Each alert in the dashboard comes with a response function, which will help teams through the remediation process with detailed mitigation recommendations for the most common threats, allowing MSPs to become more self-sufficient.

Datto EDR is an effective threat detection solution with readily available and knowledgeable technical support. Its efficient and actionable alerts can be quickly interpreted to decide on the appropriate next steps with quick deployment options that don’t interfere with day-to-day business operations. Further, continuous monitoring of process, memory, and behavior across all endpoints limits the time it takes to detect intrusions.

Part of Kaseya’s IT Complete Platform, Datto EDR expands the security suite to provide the maximum coverage across multiple vectors. Datto EDR is integrated with Datto RMM and Kaseya One to address the challenges of do-it-all, multifunctional IT professionals. It offers one vendor with everything you need, woven together to save you time, smart enough to help you get more done, and at an affordable price point.

ExaGrid Drives Next-Generation Backup Storage

Marlborough, Mass., November 14, 2022 — / / — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced the release of software Version 6.2, which begins shipping in early December 2022.

ExaGrid is constantly driving improvements in five key areas: ingest performance for the fastest backups and shortest backup window, fastest restores to keep user productive, scalability to ensure a fixed-length backup window as data grows as well as no forklift upgrades and no planned product obsolescence, lowest cost up front and over time, and a strong security story including the ability to recover after a security attack such as ransomware.

ExaGrid’s Unique Architecture employs:

  • Front-end disk-cache Landing Zone for fast backups
  • Optimized for large backup jobs, parallel backup support (job concurrency), no inline deduplication to slow backups down, encryption at the drive level to increase performance, and integrations with key backup applications for front-end load balancing.
  • Fast restores as the data is in the native backup application format and is non-deduplicated to avoid compute-intensive data rehydration
  • Scale-out architecture
  • Keeps a fixed-length backup window as data grows
  • Eliminates disruptive and costly forklift upgrades
  • Can mix and match any age and any size appliance eliminating planned product obsolescence to reduce costs over time
  • Non-network-facing Repository Tier
  • Deduplicated data to efficiently store all current and long-term retention data for cost savings
  • Not visible or accessible from the network
  • Delayed deletes to ensure data deleted on the front-end Landing Zone is not immediately deleted in the repository ensuring data is ready for recovery after an attack
  • Immutable data objects that are not deleted, changed, or modified to ensure recovery from encryption events

5 Key Updates in Version 6.2

Veritas NetBackup Single Target Storage Pool
ExaGrid has integrated with NetBackup and presents a single virtualized target pool of storage at each site. This approach automates job management between Veritas NetBackup and ExaGrid, where backup data is automatically sent to available ExaGrid appliances for front-end performance. Backup data is directed into any ExaGrid appliance as all ExaGrid appliances are in a single integrated scale-out system. ExaGrid automatically load balances all data across all non-network facing repositories for full storage utilization and globally deduplicates data across all repositories for maximum storage savings.

Veritas IT Analytics
ExaGrid has integrated with Veritas IT analytics, allowing reporting on key data statistics from the ExaGrid storage. This allows enterprises to include ExaGrid Tiered Backup storage along with unified insights for backup, storage, and virtual infrastructure.

ExaGrid, including Single Target Storage Pool and support of NetBackup Analytics, now has a total of 9 Veritas NetBackup integrations, including support of NetBackup Accelerator, OST Integration, integration with NetBackup media server hardware, AIR (Auto Image Replication), and GRT (granular level restore), optimized deduplication, and instant recovery.

New ExaGrid Cloud Tier Features and Integrations
ExaGrid physical appliances on premise in the data center can replicate data to the public clouds for disaster recovery (DR). ExaGrid has improved the performance and scalability of its ExaGrid Cloud Tier for Amazon AWS and has added ExaGrid Cloud Tier support for Microsoft Azure. ExaGrid physical on-site appliances replicate the deduplicated data in the repository to AWS or Azure, which is then written to AWS or Azure storage for long-term retention. The deduplicated data uses about 1/50th of the bandwidth versus undeduplicated data. ExaGrid encrypts the data in transit, and the cloud providers encrypt the data at rest.

Improved Performance
ExaGrid has improved its Adaptive Deduplication performance, increasing the Repository Tier’s overall performance and further increasing the scalability and recovery points of data in the non-network-facing Repository Tier and offsite disaster recovery copy.

ExaGrid has greatly improved the performance of Veeam synthetic fulls (Veeam V12) by adding support for Veeam’s Fast Clone technology in ExaGrid repositories. The synthetics fulls are at least 30X faster than previous versions.

Improved Security
ExaGrid has a strong ransomware recovery solution with a non-network-facing Repository Tier (tiered air gap), delayed delete policy, immutable data objects, and 2FA support. ExaGrid has added two new features:

  • An alert on large delete is generated as an early detection warning if a threat actor/hacker is trying to delete a large amount of recently ingested data (above a set operational threshold) on the ExaGrid front-end Landing Zone.
  • An alert on data deduplication change is generated when the deduplication ratio changes below a set threshold signaling that a large amount of encrypted data is being sent to the ExaGrid front-end Landing Zone or that the data on the Landing Zone is being encrypted.

These features add an early alert warning in addition to the current ExaGrid Retention Time-Lock (RTL) functionality, ensuring that the data in the non-network-facing tier is available for recovery.

“ExaGrid continues to focus on improving backup and restore performance, scalability, cost savings, and security,” said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. “Since ExaGrid is 100% focused on backup storage, all we do is obsess about making backup storage better. We are the only company worldwide focusing solely on backup storage. It is a testament to the product that we are installed in over 80 countries worldwide, have 99% of our customers on yearly maintenance and support contracts, have a NPS of +81, and a customer retention rate of 95%. All of these numbers are market-leading in storage. ExaGrid is a financially healthy and growing company that is cash positive, P&L positive, and EBITDA positive. The combination of our product, customer support, and financial strength is why customers trust ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage.”

About ExaGrid
ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a unique disk-cache Landing Zone, long-term retention repository, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s Landing Zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. The retention repository offers the lowest cost for long-term retention. ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture includes full appliances and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid offers the only two-tiered backup storage approach with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects to recover from ransomware attacks.

Customers in these countries can now locally store and restore Microsoft 365 data in Azure with Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup technology

CAMPBELL, Calif.  – NOV. 14, 2022 — / / — Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today announced two new Azure regions for its data protection services, Sweden and Switzerland, to meet growing customer demand in these countries. The new regions will cover Gävle (Sweden) and Zurich (Switzerland North) and mean that customers can now choose from 13 Azure regions for the storage of data backed up via Cloud-to-Cloud Backup.

The regions are particularly relevant for organizations in regulated industries or in countries with strict data protection laws. In a recent study conducted by Barracuda, organizations named data protection as a key security and regulatory concern. Nearly 7 in 10 (69%) of respondents said they were concerned about backup data being stored outside their geography (geo residency), and more than 7 in 10 worried about compliance with data privacy requirements.

Barracuda’s Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Software-as-a-Service product line protects data stored in Microsoft 365, delivering a fast search and restore experience for Microsoft 365 data, including Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive. It offers scale and resiliency, fast performance, and wide global coverage to protect Office 365 data born in the cloud. New business sales for Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup are growing at 34% year-over-year, including 87% growth in international sales, according to Q2, FY23 results.

“At Barracuda, we continue to invest in our global infrastructure in order to help organizations protect their networks, applications, and data against prevalent and emerging threats,” said Chris Ross, CRO at Barracuda. “As more organizations move to the cloud, they are looking not just to protect their backed-up data but to store that data locally to help meet industry, national, and international regulatory and compliance demands. With the new Azure regions in Sweden and Switzerland, we are further enhancing the service we provide to customers.”
