The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last decade has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many startups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer.

Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the cloud backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):

Since solution launch, over 4,600 N-able partners are protecting more than 36k Microsoft 365 customer domains

DURHAM, NC – June 30, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — N-able, Inc. (NYSE: NABL), the solutions partner helping IT services providers deliver security, data protection as-a-service, and remote monitoring and management services, today announced Cove Data Protection™ for Microsoft 365® has surpassed one million protected Microsoft 365 users. Since launching the solution in December 2019, more than 4,600 N-able partners are utilizing the solution to help prevent data loss across more than 36,000 customer domains and over 1.2 million Exchange™ mailboxes.

Cove combines cloud-first data protection with business-class disaster recovery and long-term backup retention. It sits in a fundamentally different class among well-known legacy backup solutions, without the traditional high costs and built-in inefficiencies. Cove Data Protection for Microsoft 365 is specifically designed to help IT services providers protect Microsoft 365 users from data loss. It enables customers to retain and restore Exchange, OneDrive®, and SharePoint® data, managed from the same web-based dashboard used to protect servers and workstations. Backups are fully automated and performed several times a day.

While application providers such as Microsoft are focused on service availability and uptime, it is important to remember that data stored in Microsoft 365 remains the responsibility of the business and its managed IT service provider, as noted in the Microsoft service agreement. There are many ways to lose data, including accidental or malicious deletion, as well as malware or ransomware, and human error. Some organizations do not understand this shared responsibility, and may fail to appreciate the potential risk of skipping backups. These trends reinforce the need for a dedicated solution to protect Microsoft 365 data using a platform like Cove Data Protection for Microsoft 365.

“We’ve observed a shift in mindset on the true risk of data loss with SaaS applications like Microsoft 365 – from optional to mandatory,” said Stefan Voss, vice president of product management, Cove Data Protection. “Hitting the one million user mark shows that the growth in the adoption of Cove for this use case is evidence that mindsets are changing, and managed services providers and internal IT teams are looking for straightforward, reliable solutions to protect against SaaS data loss.”

“Cove is exactly what we need in terms of functionality,” commented Paul Vedder, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, VXIT. “It’s a product that simply just works. Our customers understand very quickly the importance of backing up Microsoft 365, and Cove helps us provide that service efficiently.”

Cove Data Protection™ for Microsoft 365 is built to help MSPs:

  • Recover data quickly in the event of a disaster and retain data for longer than the short-term recycle bin
  • Reduce service delivery costs by managing the backup and restore of Microsoft 365 data from the same dashboard used to protect servers and workstations
  • Drive profitability via one flat, per-user fee (cloud data storage included in the price*)

ExaGrid Recognized as Forward-Thinking Technology Vendor

Marlborough, Mass. – June 30, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that Midsize Enterprise Services (MES), a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized ExaGrid on its 2022 MES Matters- Key Vendors Serving the Midmarket list.

The MES Matters list recognizes vendors that have proven themselves to be forward-thinking technology providers offering solutions that support the growth and innovation of midmarket organizations.

MES defines the midmarket as an organization with an annual revenue of $50M-$2B and/or 100-2500 total supported users/seats. Companies were selected due to their go-to-market strategy, how they serve the midmarket, and the strength of their midmarket product portfolios.

ExaGrid focuses on the Midmarket to the Large Enterprise and offers the most value to customers who back up 50TB to 100s of PB of data, and keep data for long-term retention. Midmarket organizations in particular have a complex set of requirements for backup storage that include: working across a wide range of operating systems, network topologies and distributed environments, stringent security requirements, and managing massive data growth. In addition, Midmarket organizations have tight IT resources and budget dollars.

ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage appliances were architected to work with all major backup applications and in any environment but with the easiest installation, easiest management, and the lowest cost up front and over time. Midmarket organizations need a solution that brings the appropriate compute with capacity to handle large data loads and massive data growth, with the least management possible. ExaGrid’s full appliances in a single system bring a scale-out architecture to backup storage at a price that is affordable. In addition, ExaGrid’s tiered storage architecture includes a non-network-facing repository (providing a virtual air gap) where data is stored as immutable objects, and enables a delayed delete policy with its Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature, and this functionality is an important consideration for Midmarket organizations in the wake of increasing ransomware and malware attacks.

“ExaGrid’s Tiered Backup Storage offers the key items that Midmarket organizations need for their backup infrastructure: A scale-out architecture that allows them to add appliances to their system as their data grows, so they only pay for what they need, with no costly forklift upgrades, as well as a backup storage solution that is ready for ransomware recovery,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO. “We are honored to be recognized among the leading vendors that serve Midmarket organizations and look forward to providing more organizations with a backup storage solution that offers the best performance for the best value, up front and over time.”

“The MES Matters list is designed to recognize key vendors that are invested in the growth and development of midmarket organizations which according to Harvard Business Review 3/21, represent only 3% of US businesses but are responsible for 33% of private sector GDP and employment. Technology is often designed and priced for either the consumer in mind, or the extreme opposite for the heavy enterprise in mind. Midmarket organizations are unique in the way they are structured and as a result their technology needs and requirements from features to pricing are very different than other market segments” said Adam Dennison, VP Midsize Enterprise Services, The Channel Company. “The vendors and executives identified on this first-ever MES Matters list have shown a consistent commitment to help midmarket organizations succeed and thrive, they should be recognized and commended for their dedication to this important market segment”.

The MES Matters list is featured online at https://www.crn.com/rankings-and-lists/mes2022.htm

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.

To better support partners, Scality is rolling out an updated partner program that includes new sales and product enablement paths, deal protection and a partner portal. The program is structured to support growth so that new partners, coming in as a Scality Select Partner, have everything they need to start to build their practice and pipeline with Scality. Resources such as co-brandable campaign kits, market development funds and joint business planning are available right out of the gate. As the partnership grows, additional benefits such as higher margin protection, rebates and incentives will be made available, and partners will have the opportunity to be promoted to a Scality Elite or Global Elite Partner. Partners also will be able to earn competency badges to highlight their areas of expertise and differentiate themselves within the ecosystem.

This new program, coupled with the introduction of Scality ARTESCA last year, sets Scality partners up to offer true scalability to their customers and manage their data everywhere. ARTESCA uniquely combines lightweight, cloud-native object storage design with true enterprise-grade capabilities, providing a solution for both small footprints at the edge and scalability for the data center. Starting from 50TB and up, partners can now land more customers with Scality, and grow with the needs of their customers’ business.

To reward partners for identifying and closing new deals in this segmentation, Scality has launched a new ARTESCA challenge program that offers incentives and includes the potential to win a trip to Mauritius. More information about this program is available here.

Melissa Lyons, senior director of channels for Americas, Scality, said: “There has never been a better time to partner with Scality. As we are seeing more and more customers repatriating some cloud-based workloads back on-premises, our partners are in a great position to help them rotate to a hybrid strategy that can optimize their object storage and reduce costs. This, combined with the expanded market opportunity ARTESCA brings to the table and a partner program structure that makes it easier for partners to work with us, will undoubtedly lead to incremental revenue opportunities for our partners.”

Frederic Saldes, head of alliances and channel for EMEA, Scality, said: “We’ve seen great success with the land-and-expand approach at Scality. In fact, 85% of customers expand their footprint with us and half of them do it within 12-18 months of the initial purchase. With our 100% channel strategy, partners are in a great position to capitalize on this expansion revenue and leverage our best-in-class support, training and other enablement to help them do so.”

Downies, a collectibles dealer from Australia, backs up Microsoft 365 data with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – June 29, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Downies has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Downies has been around for 85 years as a family-run business specializing in coins, stamps, banknotes, model cars, and other collectibles.

Downies operates from multiple locations with a wide range of IT services, including its SAP environment. The business has three main sites, with all servers located on the one site. All servers are virtualized using Microsoft Hyper-V. Virtual machines run Microsoft Active Directory, Dynamic Host Confguration Protocol (DHCP), as well as time and attendance, payroll, and ERP systems. The ERP system, the most critical for Downies, consumes the most resources and runs across 7 VMs.

Mostly, Downies uses backups for recovery of individual files. However, the business also needs to ensure that if a disaster happens, systems are up and running quickly. The business cannot afford downtime for longer than a day. If data is unavailable for more than a week, the whole business would have to shut down.

Downie’s previous VM backup solution became outdated and required regular maintenance and monitoring. Moreover, additional software was needed to perform various tasks. Backup jobs regularly failed and required manual intervention. Other software was used to perform backup to tape and backup to disk.

The company needs to back up about 25 VMs and 70 Microsoft 365 mailboxes, as well as replicate critical servers to a secondary site. Downies decided to search for a new solution that can provide all the functionalities under one roof as well as offer time and money savings.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an all-in-one data protection solution for virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments. The product protects business data and applications with industry-leading features. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication has good reviews on multiple websites and offers all the needed functionalities, ranging from backup to disaster recovery, in one simple solution,” says Hamid Osmani, IT Manager at Downies. “The support service has also been good with a quick response time. The installation process was simple and rapid. I had to look at the technical documentation to do some of the setups, but I was able to back up servers in no time after that.”

“We have installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication on an individual server with storage. The tape drive is also connected to the same server, so the tape jobs can run, during business operating hours and will not cause any congestion on the network,” says Hamid. “Our replication server is offsite, and this will be our disaster recovery site if something critical was to happen to our primary site. Currently, we are backing up 10 workloads fairly quickly. Our production server is backed up every two hours and the development servers are backed up once a day.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides fast backup and easy recovery for Downies, as well as offers VM replication and backup for Microsoft 365. “Recovery of individual files, via the browser is what we find extremely handy for us. Also, being able to back up to disk and to tape, setup VM replication to the remote site, and back up Microsoft 365 mailboxes is incredible because everything can be done from the same web interface,” says Hamid. “Business continuity is key for us and with VM replication, we can recover a server in no time at all. Since moving to Microsoft 365, we did not have a solution that supported Microsoft 365 backup. Now, we have achieved complete protection of our Microsoft 365 data from a centralized web interface, and do not need any additional tools.”

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a robust data protection solution that provides multiple functionalities with minimal workarounds. With the product, we have backup to disk, backup to tape, VM replication, and Microsoft 365 backup, all from the same centralized web interface,” says Hamid. “With the product’s technical support, we are always taken care of in terms of receiving answers to our questions. NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped Downies maintain business continuity and achieve results much quicker and without the need for constant maintenance and monitoring. In terms of cash spent, we saved nearly 20%, but the time savings are a much bigger advantage for us.”

Albany, NY – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — FirstLight, a leading provider of digital infrastructure services to enterprise and carrier customers throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, announced today the addition of several cloud-based security solutions to its comprehensive services portfolio.

FirstLight’s new security solutions, including Secure Internet Gateway (SIG), Immutable Backup, Insider Protection, and Managed Backup, help bolster FirstLight’s mission to help protect customers from cyberattacks. In addition to ransomware protection and recovery, FirstLight’s cyber security solutions are designed to help enterprises adopt a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) approach through the convergence of streamlined network and security management. Secure Internet Gateway (SIG), powered by Cisco Umbrella, monitors all web traffic, decrypts and inspects SSL traffic, and uses retrospective security to identify previously benign files that have become malicious.

Immutable Backup and Insider Protection are cyber defenses that help thwart sophisticated ransomware attacks. Insider Protection and Immutable Backups help safeguard against data deletion and modifications so organizations can be confident that hackers cannot interfere with or prevent a recovery process during an attack. Managed Backup with FirstLight is the answer for organizations that lack the manpower and resources to efficiently administer their backup and recovery processes. By ensuring the proper controls are in place, FirstLight can reduce vulnerabilities due to gaps in the customer’s cyber security. The benefits of these offerings extend beyond security by allowing for quicker recovery time if data is lost or accidently deleted due to unforeseen circumstances.

“With technology everchanging and security threats on the rise, we realize that businesses need trusted solutions to choose from and the right experts to manage them,” said Maura Mahoney, Chief Marketing Officer for FirstLight. “The addition of these FirstLight security solutions help us to continue to meet the specific needs of our customers. Providing businesses with SIG, Immutable Backups, Insider Protection and Managed Backup, in addition to our existing security solutions, ensures that FirstLight is doing its part to provide the comprehensive solutions to help protect our customers from security threats and downtime.”

  • Ransomware Attacks Continue to Incur Staggering Costs
  • Smaller Businesses Less Confident in Recovering Data
  • Additional Investments Needed to Protect Against Ransomware Attacks

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Arcserve, the world’s most experienced ransomware protection and unified data resilience platform provider, today announced the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on current experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) around data protection and recovery.

Key findings from the research show that ransomware attacks continue to impact organizations worldwide with high costs, but they are still largely unprepared. With 50% of respondents targeted with ransomware attacks, the research indicates the critical need for companies to take a new approach to data resilience that fortifies disaster recovery strategies, backup systems, and immutable storage solutions to prevent the loss of mission-critical data.

Ransomware attacks continue to incur high costs. The stakes are increasing as 35% of respondents report their organizations were asked to pay over $100,000 in ransom payments, and 20% asked to pay between $1 million to $10 million.

When asked about the confidence level in their IT team’s ability to recover lost data in a ransomware attack, less than a quarter (23%) of those surveyed said they are very confident in their ability to recover lost data. Smaller businesses are even less confident – less than 20% are very confident in their ability to recover lost data in a ransomware attack.

The research revealed that ITDMs recognize the importance of continued investments to increase data resilience, as 92% said they are making additional investments to protect against ransomware attacks. The top areas of investment are:

  • Security software: 64%
  • Training and certification: 50%
  • Managed services: 43%

A strong disaster recovery strategy and updated backup systems are critical as most ITDMs (58%) said they will rely on existing backups to restore operations as quickly as possible if a ransomware attack occurs. Only 35% of those surveyed have data backup and recovery in place for all remote employees, presenting a significant vulnerability in the event of a ransomware attack as the remote workforce and the hybrid work environment become the norm.

The survey also found that most ITDMs (81%) want governments to do more to help companies protect against ransomware, although they acknowledge limitations.

Said Florian Malecki, executive vice president, marketing at Arcserve: “As our annual survey confirmed, ransomware attacks continue to significantly disrupt business worldwide with staggering costs and the real threat of losing mission-critical data. IT decision-makers must review and modernize their IT security infrastructure by making data backup and recovery and immutable storage a cornerstone of their data resilience strategy to strengthen the entire environment.” He continued: “Arcserve focuses on helping our customers achieve true data resilience with a Unified Data Protection approach of impenetrable and immutable best-in-class data protection solutions for data centers, cloud, and hybrid environments.”

About the research conducted by Dimensional Research: 1,121 qualified individuals completed the survey. All participants had a budget or technical decision-making responsibility for data management, data protection, and storage solutions at a company with 100 – 2,500 employees and at least 5 TB of data. The survey was fielded in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada (North America).

About Arcserve
Arcserve, a global top 5 data protection vendor and unified data resilience platform provider, offers the broadest set of best-in-class solutions to manage, protect, and recover all data workloads, from SMB to enterprise, regardless of location or complexity. Arcserve solutions eliminate complexity while bringing best-in-class, cost-effective, agile, and massively scalable data protection and certainty across all data environments.

Alvear Hotels, a hotel chain in Argentina, cuts 30% of time on backup administration and saves thousands of dollars with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Alvear hotels has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Alvear hotels include three luxury hotels in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Unique in style and decoration, each hotel is strategically located and inspired to give the guests a unique experience. Excellence, hospitality, and sophistication are the hallmark of the Alvear brand.

The chain’s infrastructure is completely virtualized and is running from two physical sites. Virtual machines mainly store corporate data. This data should be available 24/7 in order to ensure uninterrupted services and support the guest experience. The main goal of the hotel chain is to provide the best quality of service to their guests and ensure a high level of hospitality.

Backup and replication services are a fundamental part of every IT department in any industry, especially in hospitality. As Alvear hotels are running 24/365, any data loss or malfunctioning could lead to catastrophic issues.

In the past, Alvear hotels used another VM backup solution. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic became a catastrophe for the hospitality industry, the hotel chain had to search for a high-quality and cost-efficient alternative for each of the current services.

The very high pricing of the previous solution became a burden during the conditions of the pandemic. Moreover, the IT department had to spend too much time looking into each backup job to find out whether the job was actually successful and to deal with alarms. A new solution also needed to ensure business continuity and provide a variety of features to support that.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication became the choice of Alvear hotels for protecting critical data. The solution is fast, reliable, and cost-effective and supports virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments.

“NAKIVO’s staff were quick, responsive, and extremely interested in supporting their customers, with a good attitude and a great pricing model. The team let us test NAKIVO Backup & Replication for an extended period before we made our decision,” says Pablo Kalik, Corporate Systems Manager at the Alvear hotels. “The product is easy to install and configure and in a couple of minutes the first backup job was already running. The product’s web interface was also a big plus for us.”

The Alvear hotel chain takes advantage of daily backup, instant VM recovery, and screenshot verification functionality that NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers. The entire infrastructure gets backed up during the night. While incremental backup takes several hours and is performed during the day. With instant VM recovery, the hotel chain can recover their entire VMs near-instantly.

“With screenshot verification, we can verify our backups, thus letting us go one step ahead. We receive detailed reports about every backup job,” says Pablo “Backup verification was an issue for us in the past, but now, we know whether our backups are running successfully, without spending loads of time on finding out about it.”

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an intuitive backup solution that is easy to understand and easy to rely on, as everyone in our IT department genuinely loves the product,” says Pablo. “NAKIVO’s support team is always nice to contact. The technical support answer quickly and gently, no matter what kind of question or issues we made. Overall, NAKIVO Backup & Replication ensures business continuity across all our three hotels,” says Pablo.

“For us, our main goal is to support a high-quality guest experience across our three hotels, and NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports our mission,” says Pablo. ”The solution let us achieve our budget goal with an excellent product. The product helped us save 30% on backup administration, as well as saved thousands of dollars. In the past, our IT department spent excessive amount of time on backup administration, while with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, our team can focus on our core business goals,” says Pablo.

File data services leader makes second acquisition in 60 days, follows significant investment

BOSTON, MA – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services, announced today it has acquired Storage Made Easy (SME), a leading file data management company that offers remote work and compliance solutions for cloud file storage. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed. The acquisition of SME is Nasuni’s second transaction within the last two months following a $60 million investment earlier in the year.

One of today’s biggest challenges for data storage is the ability to make files accessible to users no matter where they are. As organizations continue to support a distributed workforce, access to file data is required, including from home and branch offices as well as field locations that may have limited internet bandwidth. Traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) does a poor job accommodating file access from anywhere and stores file data in silos making search and analytics impossible.

“Providing secure, high-performance access to file data from any location while complying with a stringent regulatory landscape is challenging every IT organization,” said Paul Flanagan, chief executive officer of Nasuni. “By adding remote work and compliance capabilities to the Nasuni platform through the acquisition of SME, we are giving organizations even more reasons to modernize their file data infrastructures, all while reducing capital and operational costs. This adds further capabilities to our ‘work from anywhere’ strategy, accelerating our file data services leadership.”

“The combination of SME and Nasuni creates a suite of highly complementary, multi-cloud file data services for our customers and partners,” said Jim Liddle, founder and chief executive officer of SME. “Joining Nasuni is a natural move, and the SME team is thrilled to join the company and help advance their leadership in the file data services market.” Jim Liddle will join Nasuni as vice president of product, file fabric.

The acquisition of SME will extend the Nasuni File Data Platform with capabilities that can address these needs, including:

  • Desktop synchronization for offline access
  • Accelerated VPN-less access to file data for remote and hybrid workers
  • Microsoft Teams, Slack and Office 365 integration
  • Enhanced enterprise search capabilities for regulatory compliance

The SME acquisition gives organizations more reasons to adopt the Nasuni File Data Platform for their file storage, backup and ransomware concerns. It uniquely leverages object storage from Azure, AWS and Google Cloud to transform legacy file infrastructure with a suite of file data services that enables files to be accessed from anywhere and protected from anything.

Prior to the transaction, Nasuni and SME were already partnering to deliver the two companies’ integrated solutions to joint enterprise customers.

“We deployed Nasuni with AWS object storage a few years ago to replace our on-premises NAS and file backup solutions, and more recently added SME, so the combination makes perfect sense,” said Mike Shepard, enterprise IT architect at RES, the United States’ largest ecological restoration company. “When the pandemic hit, we realized that we needed a borderless workflow without the pain of VPN to make remote file sharing simple for our users. Nasuni and SME enable our engineers to connect to project shares from home with ease, synchronize files to their desktops for fast access and quickly search large amounts of corporate file data for the information they need.”

In addition to augmenting Nasuni’s remote work and compliance capabilities, the acquisition of SME gives Nasuni an additional presence in the UK as it continues to expand its EMEA footprint, which grew in March with the opening of the company’s new innovation center in Cork, Ireland.

Combination Provides Highly Scalable, Secure and Cost-effective Solution for Driving Greater Business Value

Solution to be Showcased This Week at HPE Discover 2022

SAN MATEO, CA – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Cloudian® today announced a partnership with Vertica, a Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) line of business, providing organizations with a public cloud-like modern data warehousing solution, on-premises, for managing their AI/ML and other analytics workloads securely behind their firewall. Vertica’s separation of compute and storage scaling of its underlying analytical database allows customers to use Cloudian’s HyperStore® native S3-compatible object storage as a single location to store all their data. As a result, users can capitalize on HyperStore’s many benefits, including exabyte-level scalability, military-grade security and cost savings of up to 70% compared to public cloud and traditional storage alternatives.

Data warehouse and data lake environments are growing rapidly, with analytics use cases such as AI/ML fueling the growth of petabyte-scale data sets. This growth is occurring not only in public clouds but also in enterprise data centers as organizations look to run analytics applications on their local data and want to do so on-prem—rather than in public clouds—for performance, security, data sovereignty and cost reasons.

In contrast to traditional infrastructure solutions that cannot meet the cost, scalability and other requirements for supporting these modern applications, Cloudian’s HyperStore offers an ideal data repository or lake for Vertica environments:

  • Drop-in integration: Seamlessly integrate with Vertica using Vertica’s capability to use S3 as the main repository for the hybrid cloud.
  • Modular, limitless elasticity: Start with three low-cost nodes and expand simply by adding devices to the cluster without disrupting analytic workloads.
  • Multi-tenancy: Allow multiple users to analyze data sitting on a single, shared data lake or data warehouse—without compromising security—while also employing multi-tenant billing, metering and quality of service (QoS) controls.
  • Hybrid-cloud readiness: Employ policy-based tools to replicate or tier data to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, or to another HyperStore cluster for offsite disaster recovery, capacity expansion or data analysis in the cloud.
  • Data resiliency: Get up to 14 nines of resiliency along with administrator-defined storage policies for implementing it based on replication or erasure coding.
  • Ransomware protection: Through S3 Object Lock, prevent malware from encrypting data—enabling quick, easy recovery of an unencrypted backup copy without paying ransom—and meet governance and legal hold demands.
  • Military-grade security: Further secure data with features such as secure shell, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM access controls, AES-256 server-side encryption for data at rest and SSL for data in transit, as well as certification with the most stringent government security requirements.

“With enterprises looking to leverage analytics applications on-prem to gain greater insights from the data stored there, having a modern storage infrastructure is critical,” said Jeff Healey, vice president of marketing of the Vertica Product Group at Micro Focus. “By partnering with Cloudian, we’re enabling our customers to capitalize on a leading object storage platform and maximize the value of their digital assets.”

“Over the past two years, Cloudian has introduced a range of new solutions to support organizations’ modern application demands,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer, Cloudian. “With data gravity and data sovereignty driving the move toward hybrid cloud models, the Cloudian-Vertica solution combines the benefits of cloud-based data warehouses with the security, control and other advantages of keeping data behind the firewall.”

Cloudian will be featuring the solution this week at HPE Discover 2022 (Booth #312), and more information is available at cloudian.com/vertica/

Tech veteran and CEO David Bennett leads new object storage backup appliance company that emerges from stealth with $12.5 million in investment

BEVERLY, Mass. – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Object First, the first object storage backup storage appliance purpose-built for Veeam®, today announced its official company launch. Created by Veeam co-founders Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov, Object First helps midsize enterprise organizations ransomware-proof their backups by delivering effortless out-of-the-box immutability.

The solution is designed and optimized to be the best storage for Veeam:

  • Simple to deploy and scale with no security expertise required.
  • Powerful enough to support ultra-fast backups and Instant Recovery.
  • Affordable with the best price-performance ratio in the industry.

With the exponential rise of ransomware, data protection has become a C-level or board-level discussion for every business, large or small,” Timashev said. “We are delivering an optimized implementation specifically tailored for data protection with out-of-the-box immutability and hardened security paired with the right level of redundancy and features. Object storage represents a major technological shift to provide new data-driven storage that is completely ransomware immune whether it is running locally or in the cloud.”

Businesses fall victim to ransomware attacks every 11 seconds, while year-over-year ransomware attacks increased by 13% — a jump greater than the past five years combined. Backup data provides a means to recover maliciously encrypted data to ensure business continuity. However, with the rapid evolution of cyber threats, backup data has become the primary target as cyber criminals try to prevent any means of recovery after an attack. Thus, immutable backups have become the ultimate defense against ransomware.

Object First recognized the need to help organizations ransomware-proof the largest target in their environment — their backup data. By building a foundation on security and ransomware resiliency from the start, Object First eliminates the need for IT administrators to become security experts.

Key features of Object First include:

Ransomware-proof: Effortless out-of-the-box immutability eliminates the risk of ransomware infiltrating backup data, while a factory-hardened operating system assures data integrity.

Simple: Object First can be racked, stacked, and installed in just 15 minutes — not hours or days. Users can scale performance and capacity by simply adding a node. No security expertise is required.

Powerful: With ingest speeds exceeding 4.0 gigabytes per second, Object First supercharges Instant Recovery, enabling users to run failed workloads directly from backup within minutes.

Affordable: Offering an unbeatable price-performance ratio, Object First eliminates the need to sacrifice recoverability and availability to meet budget constraints.

Object First also announced that David Bennett has joined the Company as Chief Executive Officer, assuming day-to-day leadership. Bennett, a tech veteran and a seasoned executive with more than 26 years of IT channel leadership, served as Chief Executive Officer at Axcient and Chief Revenue Officer at Webroot prior to joining Object First.

“Object storage is the future of the industry due to the big benefits around scale, reliability, availability, security, cost, and most importantly—easy-to-implement, effortless immutability—and we’ll see continued increased adoption for across all industries,” said Bennett. “While cloud computing has been a huge driver, we’re also going to see more on-premises adoption, as hybrid environments prevail. We launched Object First to help Veeam customers with effortless immutability.”

Object First beta is available now, with general availability coming later this year through its growing channel partner ecosystem. For more information about joining the beta program, please visit www.objectfirst.com

About Object First
Object First is the object storage backup appliance company designed and optimized to be the best storage for Veeam®. Object First delivers S3-compatible purpose-built backup storage appliances created for midsize enterprises with constrained IT. Object First is the best defense against ransomware with effortless immutability. It is a simple, powerful, and affordable solution that can easily scale up to 0.5 petabyte.

MIAMI, FL – June 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Airiam, a managed IT and Digital Transformation company with a strong focus on cybersecurity, today announced the release of AirProducts™, its proprietary line designed to deliver enterprise-grade technology, cyber protection and digital transformation services to small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs).

SMEs are prime targets for threat actors. The average ransom now exceeds $200,000, and some ransoms reach millions of dollars. SMEs experienced a 424% increase in cyber breaches from 2020 to 2021, and attacks continue to grow this year. Businesses are left vulnerable to attacks without immutable system backups hosted where cybercriminals can’t access them, barriers to system breaches such as multi-factor authentication, and 24/7 system monitoring. Airiam’s AirProducts address these issues and protect businesses from costly cybercrime.

“Ransomware is on the rise, and cybercrime is growing more sophisticated. Fifty percent of companies now report being targeted by a cyberattack at least once a week, and the risk to SMEs is substantial,” said Ohad Jehassi, Airiam’s CEO. “SMEs don’t have the same resources as large enterprises, and they’re far less equipped to deal with cybercriminals. They prefer to work with one vendor, but most vendors don’t offer everything they need for enterprise level protection. That’s why we’ve built a national cybersecurity-focused MSP with a suite of products designed to cover all their cybersecurity and managed IT needs, even offering a $2 million ransomware warranty.”

AirGuard™, Airiam’s flagship cybersecurity offering delivers managed detection and response (MDR), identity and access management (IAM), Zero Trust, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for a flat monthly fee. The premium version offers the $2 million ransomware warranty and AirRescue™ incident response service.

AirGapd™ provides cloud backup and continuity solutions inaccessible to threat actors to make infrastructures ransomware resilient and disaster recovery solutions optimized to eliminate ransom payments, data loss, and business interruption. Through in-depth discovery and penetration testing, Airiam’s AirAudit™ keeps customers one step ahead of attackers to minimize the threat of attack.

AirCTRL™ offers complete managed service provider (MSP) proactive management and support for networks, servers and workstations.

AirMonitor™ provides IT Monitoring with a remote monitoring and management (RMM) toolset for MSPs to reach systems remotely. Beyond basic maintenance, AirMonitor scans for security issues so networks operate smoothly.

Airiam’s AirProducts and services are designed to be flexible to meet the needs of growing SMEs. The services can be bundled for complete infrastructure management. AirScape™ provides everything a user needs for MSP and MSSP. AirAssure™ is a cybersecurity insurance toolset to keep businesses compliant. They also offer expert IT assistance, beyond typical Tier 1 help desk requests. When customers need Tier 2 or 3 engineering for complex situations, Airiam’s highly experienced DevOps talent is available through AirAssist™.

“Our AirProducts provide peace of mind and the robust protection formerly afforded only to large enterprises,” said Art Ocain, Airiam’s vice president of incident response. “As cybercrime evolves, it’s critical to stay a step ahead of the threat actors. Airiam is here to ensure our customers can operate their businesses without costly interruptions from cybercrime.”

About Airiam
Airiam provides businesses with extensive enterprise-grade cybersecurity services backed by Airiam’s ransomware recovery guarantee. The organization pioneered an approach to enterprise products that scale SMEs’ IT and cybersecurity needs through a robust suite of AirProducts™. These products simplify technology services and pricing models, ensuring Airiam’s customers have the right managed IT and best cyber protection.

Thanks to NAKIVO Backup & Replication, chemical manufacturing company Transpek Industry Limited, experienced a seven-fold increase in backup speed and saved time on backup administration

Sparks, NV – June 27, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Transpek Industry Limited has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Transpek Industry Limited, a chemical manufacturing company headquartered in India, carries out processes such as chlorination, sulfonation and amination, among others. The company also holds several ISO certifications.

The company’s IT infrastructure is run out of two sites with six physical servers, and all services run on VMware. The company’s VMs run customized applications, including a visitor management system, a deposit management system and a contractor management system, as well as ERP, HRMS and other services. Any data loss can hamper Transpek’s productivity, resulting in the unavailability of important information and leading to business losses.

Transpek protected their IT infrastructure with built-in VMware tools, which backed up VMs and files. Because Transpek’s built-in VMware tools could not run scheduled backups and took a long time to back up all data, the company decided to try another VM backup solution. The recovery process also did not meet the company’s needs, as recoveries of full VMs were time-consuming. Backups would simply fail without any warning or reason, and VM backup times ranged from five to seven hours for small VMs over a low-bandwidth WAN link. Moreover, the tools were not user-friendly and had no proper interface.

Transpek decided to switch to NAKIVO Backup & Replication. For Transpek, NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s main advantage is that the solution can be installed on a QNAP NAS, so software and hardware can be managed from one place.

“The previous tools were bulky and required special skills to administer,” says Praful Soni, Senior IT Manager at Transpek. “However, the installation and configuration of NAKIVO Backup & Replication was just awesome. No special training was needed due to the software having a web-based interface. We installed NAKIVO’s Director and Transporter on our QNAP NAS devices at our two locations. We also used NAKIVO’s backup repository on a QNAP, which makes our backup and recovery processes easy and fast.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication decreased Transpek’s backup time. “The initial first backup job takes hardly 60-70 minutes, and the incremental one takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes,” says Praful. “We perform daily backups for our critical servers and weekly backups for non-critical VMs. The efficiency of data transfers using NAKIVO Backup & Replication is awesome, as we can use network acceleration when performing vSphere VM backups to save network bandwidth and double the backup speed over WAN and busy LAN. We can also achieve a significantly better backup performance while reducing the load on our production network with LAN-free data transfer modes.”

An instant VM recovery was not possible with the previous tools used by Transpek. Now the company can recover entire VMs almost instantaneously with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. With screenshot verification, Transpek makes sure all backups are successful and recoverable. “We are also able to keep a backup copy at our disaster recovery site, so if there is a disaster at our primary site where the actual VM backup occurred, we can recover that VM at our DR site,” says Praful.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped improve Transpek’s backup performance, save the company time on backup administration and increase data protection reliability with new functionalities. The IT team was able to increase the company’s backup speed seven-fold with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, and they now spend minimal time on backup and recovery administration.

“I first heard about NAKIVO Backup & Replication when I purchased a QNAP NAS,” says Praful. “My initial reaction was how easy and fast the product is. I also came to the conclusion that NAKIVO Backup & Replication is faster than other products I have used and supports many different configurations. In the past, other backup products have failed me at the most important stage, the recovery stage. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, so far I have been pleasantly surprised.”

Significant workflow integrations and product investment planned to augment IT Complete platform

MIAMI, FL – June 23, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Kaseya, the premier provider of unified IT and security management software for managed service providers (MSPs) and mid-market enterprises (MME), today announced it has completed its acquisition of Datto for $6.2 billion, representing a share price of $35.50.

With the completion of the transaction, Datto’s stock ceased trading and the company is no longer listed on any public market.

Kaseya’s acquisition of Datto strengthens its IT Complete platform with an enhanced array of best-in-class solutions to help increase MSP efficiency and profitability. Kaseya announced that at least 17 workflow integrations between Datto products and the Kaseya platform are planned within the first month, and 100% of commercial integrations are anticipated to be completed within 120 days. Customers can immediately expect substantial investments focused on upgrades and innovations to all Datto product offerings.

The list pricing on all Datto technology will be reduced by ON AVERAGE 10% or more on new purchases. Some products’ list prices will come down more than that, while others might remain the same. With this pricing adjustment, Kaseya continues to provide the only purpose-built platform for the MSP that is priced right.

“As we promised when we announced our intent to buy Datto, customers are going to see investment in innovation and integrations go up and prices come down,” said Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola. “We are increasing our technical investment in our products to ensure that every one of them will be supported and integrated, with enhanced functionality. The end goal is to be the most affordable and best option on the market for our awesome customers.”

“This is absolutely the best thing that could have happened to Datto, our employees and most importantly our MSP Partners,” said Rob Rae, Datto’s Senior Vice President of Business Development. “Datto has always been committed to building great technology and creating a culture where its MSPs customers always come first —and as part of Kaseya, we will be able to do this bigger, better, and at lower cost to the MSP.”

Datto will continue to operate as an autonomous brand from Norwalk, Connecticut and other locations, with Kaseya’s official global headquarters in Miami. Since 2007, Datto’s proven unified continuity, networking, endpoint management and business management solutions have helped MSPs defend against costly downtime and data loss in servers, virtual machines, cloud applications, or anywhere data resides.

“I want to reiterate – we bought Datto because we think they’re AWESOME – their world-class products, highly-regarded brand, innovative culture and amazing people – we have no intention of messing up any of that. We will build on what they created so in the end, MSPs will get the maximum value from their solutions at an affordable price,” added Voccola.

Strengthens integration with DocuWorks, a document handling software with proven track record in Asia-Pacific markets

REDWOOD CITY, CA – June 22, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced a technology collaboration with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation. The collaboration features an enhanced integration to Box’s DocuWorks functionality, enabling “DocuWorks documents (.xdw)” to be previewed and searched on Box.

In recent years, many companies have embraced digital transformation, promoting various work styles and business efficiency, including remote work. In this environment, more than ever, business content must be easily viewed, searched, and securely shared anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

Owned by FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation, DocuWorks is a document handling software used by a cumulative total of 8 million licenses in Japan and Asia Pacific. Prior to this enhancement, DocuWorks documents had to be downloaded from Box to a DocuWorks-installed PC to view. In addition, because only file name search was available, it took added time to find desired content, sometimes hindering efficiency.

With the enhanced Box and DocuWorks integration, users will be able to store and save DocuWorks files in Box and preview them within Box, including via mobile devices. Paper-based documents are thereby digitized with DocuWorks, and the digital content is stored in Box. It can then be viewed, searched, and shared securely anytime, anywhere, and on any device, dramatically reducing the time and effort required for managing and accessing critical business content. Content silos can be eliminated, and efficiency can improve across an entire business. In addition, Box’s full range of advanced security functionality can be used to satisfy both convenience, efficiency, and security, allowing users to concentrate on their work with peace of mind.

We have received an endorsement from Toru Fujita, General Manager, Solution Service Business, Enterprise Document Solutions Business Group, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation for this announcement.

“We sincerely welcome the expansion of Box’s support for DocuWorks documents through this collaboration. Through DocuWorks, Fujifilm Business Innovation has been supporting the digitization of business operations based on the concept of an ‘electronic desk’ that reproduces the ease of handling paper on a PC. Through this collaboration, the Box service will enable users to directly search and view necessary documents ‘anywhere’ and support a variety of work styles that are not restricted by location, thereby contributing to the acceleration of customers’ digital transformation (DX). We will continue to strengthen our partnership with Box and provide a variety of solutions to help our customers improve their productivity and efficiency.”

“Many users in Asian markets including Japan use the Box Content Cloud and DocuWorks together to help them conduct secure work from anywhere,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “With this preview enhancement, the integration between Box and DocuWorks will be even more frictionless and secure. Users will be able to easily view DocuWorks files in Box in real time, from anywhere or any device, facilitating easier collaboration on content.”

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.

Code42 ranks 13th among top 75 midsize companies

Minneapolis, MN — June 23, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. Among the top 75 midsize companies, Code42 was ranked #13 on the list. A complete list of those selected is available at StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2022 and was recently published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 31-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 79,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

“Over the past few years, Code42 has played a defining role in the cybersecurity industry, shaping the new Insider Risk Management category. Along the way our employees have developed award-winning IRM solutions and created a collaborative, hybrid workplace where talent thrives. It’s an exciting time – full of opportunity – to be at Code42,” said Joe Payne, Code42 president and CEO. “I want to thank our employees who have spoken loudly to name Code42 to the Top Workplaces list.”

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”

Digital transformation and remote office capabilities have changed the face of work. At the same time, volatility across the workforce has elevated risk to data caused by insiders. Research shows that one-in-three organizations will lose IP when employees depart. The Code42® Incydr™ product helps security teams effectively mitigate data exposure and exfiltration risks without blocking legitimate collaboration. Incydr is purpose-built to help security teams effectively manage the dynamic nature of Insider Risk – that includes prioritizing and responding appropriately to the risks that matter the most. Incydr surfaces the top indicators of Insider Risk and gathers detailed security intelligence about on- and off-network file movements to both trusted and untrusted destinations.
