Cloud backup innovator and cyber insurance company close gaps in business continuity planning by adding Backblaze Computer Backup to the Coalition Control® cyber risk management platform

SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 13, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Backblaze, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLZE), the cloud storage innovator providing a modern alternative to traditional cloud providers, today announced a new partnership with Active Cyber Insurance provider Coalition to help businesses proactively reduce their cyber risk. The partnership provides Coalition’s customers with direct access to Backblaze Computer Backup, an enterprise-grade, unlimited, and automatic endpoint backup solution, via the Coalition Control® cyber risk management platform.

Many businesses have gaps in their cyber security posture that disqualify them from cyber insurance coverage, especially when it comes to immutable, off-site backups. With ransomware continuing to rise over 15% (FY ’22 to FY ’23) and the average ransomware demand increasing to nearly $1.4m, cyber insurance has become increasingly important for risk mitigation. Businesses of all sizes need access to reliable backups to gain adequate coverage and better secure their most valuable data.

“Adding Backblaze’s industry-leading cloud backup as the recommended backup solution in Coalition Control will help our customers improve their business continuity plans and cyber incident remediation through reliable data backups,” said John Roberts, General Manager, Security, at Coalition. “Backblaze’s accessible solution delivers businesses a win-win with increased compliance and enhanced incident preparedness.”

Backblaze Computer Backup combines simplicity—including preconfigured installers for faster “time to security,” backing up all user data by default, and predictable pricing for unlimited capacity—with available enterprise administration features that businesses need to protect business-critical data across hundreds or thousands of workstations—including fine-grained access controls, OIDC authentication support tools like for Azure AD and Okta, and advanced backup lockdown and recovery settings.

“Partnering with Coalition means we can take another step forward in making data protection and disaster recovery accessible to businesses of any size,” said Elton Carneiro, Senior Director, Partnerships, at Backblaze. “We are excited to work with experts in cyber insurance to play our part in bolstering protection against threats and shoring up compliance.”

Coalition supplies policyholders in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom with access to industry-leading cyber security tools through its cyber risk management platform, Coalition Control®. Insurance products offered by Coalition help over 80,000 customers face rapidly evolving digital risk with comprehensive cyber insurance coverage.

Dynamic workflows designed by Tyrell will support major commissions

Boston, MA – 12 June 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — EditShare, the technology leader that enables storytellers to create and manage collaborative workflows at every stage from storyboard to screen, has implemented another EFS storage network at leading UK entertainment production company Whisper. The system was designed and implemented in conjunction with EditShare’s partner Tyrell.

Whisper is highly regarded for its sports, live and entertainment coverage, including some of the largest events globally. Having recently secured commissions for multiple new documentary series, it has added an extensive new storage network and access facilities.

“We already have two EditShare storage nodes that we rely on, and which have proven extremely reliable over a number of years,” said Gareth Steven, head of post production at Whisper. “This new project calls for content to be created and managed over an extended period of time, with large production teams accessing and editing the content simultaneously. EditShare and Tyrell showed us that the scalability and workflow functionality met our requirements perfectly.”

The new installation sees three EditShare EFS-300 storage systems, each with 256 TB capacity, which are seen by users as a single namespace for simplicity and security in operation. The storage network is freely and continuously expandable to provide capacities exceeding a petabyte if required.

“Content security was also a key requirement for Whisper,” said Simon Wocka, account manager at Tyrell. “Media storage is like a bank vault: the assets it contains are priceless and must be protected above all else. Security is a core part of the EditShare architecture, providing the best protection at every stage without compromising operational ease and flexibility.

“EditShare also allows access directly within the key post tools that will be used on these shows,” he continued. “Artists using Adobe Premiere Pro or Blackmagic DaVinci can use EditShare integrations within their software environment, allowing them to access content directly. They don’t need to change workstations or learn new commands and structures – it removes barriers and makes workflows much simpler.”

Tara Montfort, co-founder and EVP Business Development at EditShare, added, “We are delighted to support Whisper’s new projects. Our scalable storage solutions and intuitive workflow tools are designed to meet the complex needs of production teams, ensuring they can collaborate seamlessly and focus on what they do best – creating compelling content.”

The new storage network was installed in February 2024 and is already supporting the latest documentary productions at Whisper.

Acronis XDR delivers complete, natively integrated, and highly efficient cybersecurity built for MSPs

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – June 12, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Acronis, a global leader in cybersecurity and data protection, is pleased to introduce Acronis Advanced Security + XDR the newest addition to the company’s security solution portfolio. Easy to deploy, manage, and maintain, Acronis XDR expands on the current endpoint detection and response (EDR) offering and delivers complete natively integrated, highly efficient cybersecurity with data protection, endpoint management, and automated recovery specifically built for managed service providers (MSPs).

Acronis
New Acronis Advanced Security + Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Solution

Cyberattacks have become increasingly sophisticated due to cybercriminals deploying AI and attack surfaces expanding, allowing businesses to be more vulnerable to data breaches and malware. To protect their customers, MSPs who offer security services commonly only have a choice of complex tools with insufficient, incomplete protection that are expensive and time-consuming to deploy and maintain. As a direct response to these challenges, Acronis XDR is the solution providing complete protection without high costs and added complexit.

“Acronis makes a compelling entrance into XDR,” notes Chris Kissel, Research Vice-President at IDC. “Acronis has provided an endpoint protection platform for the better part of a year. They have extended their XDR stack mapping alerts to MITRE ATTACK and offer cloud correlation detections. Importantly, their platform supports multitenancy, and the dashboard provides intuitive visualiza

Key features and benefits of Acronis XDR include:

  • Native integration across cybersecurity, data protection, and endpoint management. The product is designed to protect vulnerable attack surfaces enabling unmatched business continuity.
  • High efficiency, with the ability to easily launch, manage, scale, and deliver security services. It also includes AI-based incident analysis and single-click response for swift investigation and response.
  • Built for MSPs, including a single agent and console for all services, and a customizable platform to integrate additional tools into a unified technology stack.

Acronis

“It is imperative that MSPs provide reliable cybersecurity to customers with diverse IT environments and constrained budgets,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, President at Acronis. “Acronis XDR enables MSPs to offer top-notch security without the complexity and significant overhead of traditional non-integrated tools. This is achieved in several ways, including AI-assisted capabilities within the Acronis solution that helps MSPs provide the utmost cybersecurity – even if an MSP only has limited cybersecurity expertise.”

Earlier this year, the company released Acronis MDR powered by Novacoast, a simple, effective, and advanced endpoint security service built for MSPs with native integration of data protection to deliver unmatched business resilience. Acronis MDR is a service offering used with the Acronis EDR solution focused on endpoint protection platform (EPP) to provide passive endpoint protection. The addition of Acronis MDR amplifies MSP’s security capabilities without the need for large security resources or added investments.

The introduction of Acronis MDR and XDR follows a string of security-related offerings and solutions from Acronis, building on the company’s EDR offering released in May 2023. Acronis security solutions leverage AI-based innovations and native integrations, which lower complexity and provide complete security in the easiest and most efficient way. With a comprehensive security portfolio from Acronis, MSPs can now offer complete cybersecurity to their customers and scale operations to grow their business.

Additional information on Rubrik’s reported results, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to their most comparable GAAP measures, is included in the financial tables below. A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty of expenses that may be incurred in the future, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to Rubrik’s results computed in accordance with GAAP. For example, stock-based compensation-related charges, including employer payroll tax-related items on employee stock transactions, are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of Rubrik’s Class A common stock, and Rubrik’s future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change.

Conference Call Information

Rubrik will host a conference call to discuss results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2025, as well as its financial outlook for the fiscal second quarter and fiscal year 2025 today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time / 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Open to the public, analysts and investors may access the webcast, results press release, and investor presentation on Rubrik’s investor relations website at https://ir.rubrik.com. A replay of the webcast will also be accessible from Rubrik’s investor relations website a few hours after the conclusion of the live event.

Rubrik uses its investor relations website and may use its social media accounts including X (formerly Twitter) (@rubrikInc and @bipulsinha) and LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/company/rubrik-inc and www.linkedin.com/in/bipulsinha) as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and the related conference call contain express and implied “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding Rubrik’s financial outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2025 and full fiscal year 2025, Rubrik’s market position, market opportunities, and growth strategy, product initiatives, go-to-market motions and market trends. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “project,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “can,” “predict,” “potential,” “target,” “explore,” “continue,”, “outlook,” “guidance,” or the negative of these terms, where applicable, and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements. By their nature, these statements are subject to numerous uncertainties and risks, including factors beyond Rubrik’s control, that could cause actual results, performance or achievement to differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the statements. Risks include but are not limited to Rubrik’s limited operating history, the growth rate of the market in which Rubrik competes, Rubrik’s ability to effectively manage and sustain its growth, Rubrik’s ability to introduce new products on top of its platform, Rubrik’s ability to compete with existing competitors and new market entrants, Rubrik’s ability to expand internationally and its ability to utilize AI successfully in its current and future products. Additional risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements are included under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Rubrik’s final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b), dated April 24, 2024. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date the statements are made and are based on information available to Rubrik at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events. Rubrik assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rubrik has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Rubrik uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes that use of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing Rubrik’s financial results with other companies in its industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with Rubrik’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of Rubrik’s historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.

Free Cash Flow. Rubrik defines free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less cash used for purchases of property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software. Rubrik believes free cash flow is a helpful indicator of liquidity that provides information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated or used by Rubrik’s operations that, after the investments in property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software, can be used for strategic initiatives, including investing in Rubrik’s business and strengthening its financial position. One limitation of free cash flow is that it does not reflect Rubrik’s future contractual commitments. Additionally, free cash flow is not a substitute for cash used in operating activities and the utility of free cash flow as a measure of Rubrik’s liquidity is further limited as it does not represent the total increase or decrease in Rubrik’s cash balance for a given period.

Non-GAAP Subscription Cost of Revenue. Rubrik defines non-GAAP subscription cost of revenue as subscription cost of revenue, adjusted for amortization of acquired intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, and stock-based compensation from amortization of capitalized internal-use software.

Non-GAAP Operating Expenses (Research and Development, Sales and Marketing, General and Administrative). Rubrik defines non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative), adjusted for, as applicable, stock-based compensation expense.

Subscription Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) Contribution Margin. Rubrik defines Subscription ARR Contribution Margin as Subscription ARR contribution divided by Subscription ARR at the end of the period. Rubrik defines Subscription ARR Contribution as Subscription ARR at the end of the period less: (i) non-GAAP subscription cost of revenue and (ii) non-GAAP operating expenses for the prior 12-month period ending on that date. Rubrik believes that Subscription ARR Contribution Margin is a helpful indicator of operating leverage. One limitation of Subscription ARR Contribution Margin is that the factors that impact Subscription ARR will vary from those that impact subscription revenue and, as such, may not provide an accurate indication of Rubrik’s actual or future GAAP results. Additionally, the historical expenses in this calculation may not accurately reflect the costs associated with future commitments.

Key Business Metrics

Subscription ARR. Rubrik calculates Subscription ARR as the annualized value of our active subscription contracts as of the measurement date, assuming any contract that expires during the next 12 months is renewed on existing terms. Subscription contracts include cloud-based contracts for Rubrik’s subscription offerings and products sold on top of its Rubrik Security Cloud (“RSC”) platform, prior sales of CDM sold as a subscription term-based license with associated support, and standalone sales of Rubrik’s SaaS subscription products like Anomaly Detection (previously known as Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation) and Sensitive Data Monitoring (previously known as Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management).

Cloud ARR. Rubrik calculates Cloud ARR as the annualized value of its active cloud-based subscription contracts as of the measurement date, based on Rubrik’s customers’ total contract value and, assuming any contract that expires during the next 12 months is renewed on existing terms. Rubrik’s cloud-based subscription contracts include RSC and RSC-Government (excluding RSC-Private) and SaaS subscription products like Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation (now known as Anomaly Detection) and Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management (now known as Sensitive Data Monitoring).

Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate. Rubrik calculates Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate by first identifying subscription customers (“Prior Period Subscription Customers”) which were subscription customers at the end of a particular quarter (the “Prior Period”). Rubrik then calculates the Subscription ARR from these Prior Period Subscription Customers at the end of the same quarter of the subsequent year (the “Current Period”). This calculation captures upsells, contraction, and attrition since the Prior Period. Rubrik then divides total Current Period Subscription ARR by the total Prior Period Subscription ARR for Prior Period Subscription Customers. Rubrik’s Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate in a particular quarter is obtained by averaging the result from that particular quarter with the corresponding results from each of the prior three quarters.

Customers with $100K or More in Subscription ARR. Customers with $100K or more in Subscription ARR represent the number of customers that contributed $100,000 or more in Subscription ARR as of period end.

Data-centric organizations in healthcare, financial, and travel services trust Scality RING as the foundation for AI-powered data lakes

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 11, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Scality, a global leader in cyber-resilient storage for the AI era, today announced a large-scale deployment of its RING distributed file and object storage solution to optimize and accelerate the data lifecycle for high-throughput genomics sequencing laboratory SeqOIA Médecine Génomique. This is the most recent in a series of deployments where RING is leveraged as a foundational analytics and AI data lake repository for organizations in healthcare, financial services and travel services across the globe.

Selected as part of the France Médecine Génomique 2025 (French Genomic Medicine Plan), SeqOIA is one of two national laboratories integrating whole genome sequencing into the French healthcare system to benefit patients with rare diseases and cancer.

SeqOIA adopted Scality RING to aggregate petabyte-scale genetics data used to better characterize pathologies as well as guide genetic counseling and patient treatment. RING grants SeqOIA biologists efficient access from thousands of compute nodes to nearly 10 petabytes of data throughout its lifecycle, spanning from lab data to processed data, at accelerated speeds and a cost 3-5 times lower than that of all-flash file storage.

“RING is the repository for 90% of our genomics data pipeline, and we see a need for continued growth on it for years to come,” said Alban Lermine, IS and Bioinformatics Director of SeqOIA, “In collaboration with Scality, we have solved our analytics processing needs through a two-tier storage solution, with all-flash access of temporary hot data sets and long-term persistent storage in RING. We trust RING to protect the petabytes of mission-critical data that enable us to carry out our mission of improving care for patients suffering from cancer and other diseases.”

Scality RING powers AI data lakes for other data-intensive industries:
Customers report 59% lower TCO, 366% 5-year ROI and 34% more productive end users.

National insurance provider:
Scality RING powers AI-driven analytics for claim processing

One of the largest publicly held personal line insurance providers in the United States chose RING as the preferred AI-data lake repository for insurance analytics claim processing. The provider chose RING to replace its HDFS (Hadoop File System).

The customer has realized 3X improved space efficiency and cost savings, with higher availability through a multi-site RING deployment to support site failover.

Global travel services:
1 petabyte a day to power the world’s travel

A multinational IT services company whose technology fuels the global travel and tourism industry uses Scality RING to power its core data lake. RING supports one petabyte of new log data ingested each day to maintain a 14-day rotating data lake. This requires RING to purge (delete) the oldest petabyte each day, while simultaneously supporting 10s of gigabytes per second (GB/s) read access for analysis from a cluster of Splunk indexers.

For data lake deployments, these organizations require trusted and proven solutions with a long-term track record of delivering performance and data protection at petabyte-scale. For AI workload processing, they pair RING repositories in an intelligent tiered manner with all-flash file systems as well as leading AI tools and analytics applications, including Weka.io, HPE Pachyderm, Cribl, Cloudera, Splunk, Elastic, Dremio, Starburst and more. With strategic partners like HPE and HPE GreenLake, Scality can deliver managed AI data lakes. Learn more about how to unlock the full value of data wherever it lives at www.hpe.com

Trusted and proven for AI-powered data lakes at petabyte-scale
Fast data processing is a no-brainer for any AI deployment, but to support world-class, petabyte-scale infrastructures, RING is the only solution that can give customers:

  • Cost savings with 366% five-year ROI
  • Best price/performance through optimal use of flash and HDD
  • Peace of mind with CORE5 end-to-end cyber-resiliency

“Selecting RING was the best decision for us at SeqOIA. RING provides the complete package of features for AI-powered data lakes,” said Alban Lermine. “RING is the most secure, scalable and cost-effective repository for petabyte-scale unstructured data on the market. We can collect, pre-process and analyze data from multiple data sources at dozens of GB/s.”

RING S3 object storage for AI is unmatched with support for:

  • Retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) access from retrieval- and generative-based artificial intelligence models.
  • Integrated hybrid-cloud capabilities that enable RING to replicate and tier data to external public cloud services for integration with popular AI tools in AWS, Azure and Google.
  • Support for the customer’s choice of hybrid or all-flash storage servers.
  • CORE5 end-to-end cyber-resiliency capabilities to provide ransomware protection.

The combination of capabilities provides customers with a trusted data lake storage solution across multiple stages of the pipeline from data collection, cleansing, analysis, model development and training. RING provides organizations with high-performance and unbreakable data storage at an economic price point to enable 10s to 100s of petabytes for long-term AI data.

New offering empowers sports media teams, live news and event producers to edit and share highlights while raw files are still uploading, speeding engagement and revenue

SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 06, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Backblaze, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLZE), the leading specialized storage cloud, today announced the launch of Backblaze B2 Live Read. The offering gives customers, particularly media production teams working on live events, the ability to access, edit, and transform content while it is still being uploaded into B2 Cloud Storage, resulting in significantly faster and more efficient workflows.

This patent-pending innovation is a brand new type of service in cloud workflows, replacing cost prohibitive and complicated options that often required on-premises storage. Leading media and entertainment (M&E) production solution providers including Telestream, Glookast, and Mimir have already committed to integrating the service.

“For our customers, turnaround time is essential, and Live Read promises to speed up workflows and operations for producers across the industry,” said Richard Andes, VP, Product Management at Telestream. “We’re incredibly excited to offer this innovative feature to boost performance and accelerate our customer’s business engagements.”

Gone are the days when media teams could wait hours or days for uploads to complete to access and start editing video. Fans and followers want new content instantly, and giving it to them fast grows engagement and revenue. Live Read is positioned to revolutionize a range of live media use cases, including:

  • Creating near real-time highlight clips for broadcasters’ news segments, sports teams’ in app replays, and much more
  • Empowering best-of-breed talent for any production by reducing on-set staff requirements
  • Promoting content for on-demand sales within minutes of presentations at live events
  • Distributing teasers for buzz on social media before talent has even left the venue

This B2 Cloud Storage service is designed to be easily accessible directly via S3 compatible API and/or seamlessly within the user interface of media software partners. Along with the launch partners mentioned above, CineDeck, Alteon, Hedge, Hiscale, and MoovIT also intend to integrate Live Read–consistent with Backblaze’s commitment to help organizations do more in an open cloud environment.

“Backblaze’s Live Read is a game changer for helping organizations deliver media to their audiences dramatically faster,” said Steinar Søreide, CTO at Mimir. “Adding this offering to our platform unlocks a whole new level of impact for our user community.”

Live Read uniquely supports accessing parts of each growing object or growing file as it uploads so there’s no need to wait for the full file upload to complete. This is a major workflow accelerator especially when organizations are shooting for 4K to 8K resolutions and beyond. And when the full upload is complete, it’s accessible like any other file or object in their Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage bucket, with no middleware or proprietary software needed.

“When working in media collaboration and production environments, speed is essential,” said Felipe Santos, Head of Technology at Glookast. “Backblaze’s Live Read opens new levels of performance and capabilities for our users.”

Beyond media, the API supports breakthrough new development and IT workloads. For example, organizations maintaining large data logs or surveillance footage backups have often had to parse them into hundreds or thousands of small files each day in order to have quick access when needed–but with Live Read, they can now move to far more manageable single files per day or hour while preserving ability to access parts within seconds of them having been written.

“Backblaze has developed one of most durable, affordable, and performant storage clouds,” said Gleb Budman, Backblaze CEO and Chairperson of the Board. “Live Read is another example of the powerful innovation we’re delivering to support our customers and partners to do more with their data.”

Live Read is available in private preview now with general availability planned later this year. Organizations can learn more and sign up for the Live Read private preview on the Backblaze Blog.

Databricks and Tabular will work together towards a joint vision of the open lakehouse

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 4, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Databricks, the Data and AI company, today announced it has agreed to acquire Tabular, a data management company founded by Ryan Blue, Daniel Weeks, and Jason Reid. By bringing together the original creators of Apache Iceberg™ and Linux Foundation Delta Lake, the two leading open source lakehouse formats, Databricks will lead the way with data compatibility so that organizations are no longer limited by which of these formats their data is in. Databricks intends to work closely with the Delta Lake and Iceberg communities to bring format compatibility to the lakehouse; in the short term, inside Delta Lake UniForm and in the long term, by evolving toward a single, open, and common standard of interoperability. Databricks and Tabular will work together towards a joint vision of the open lakehouse.

The Rise of Lakehouse Architecture and Format Incompatibility
Databricks pioneered the lakehouse architecture in 2020 to enable the integration of traditional data warehousing workloads with AI workloads on a single, governed copy of data. For this to work, all data has to be in an open format so different workloads, applications, and engines could access the same data. Lakehouse architecture maximizes enterprise productivity by democratizing access to data. This is in contrast to proprietary data warehouses where only a proprietary SQL engine can read, write or share the data, and data often has to be copied and exported to be used by other applications, creating a high degree of vendor lock-in. Four years later, 74% of enterprises have deployed a lakehouse architecture.

The foundation of the lakehouse is open source data formats that enable ACID transactions on data stored in object storage. These formats dramatically improve the reliability and performance of data operations on the data lake and were specifically designed for open source engines such as Apache Spark™, Trino and Presto. To address these challenges, Databricks worked with the Linux Foundation to create the Delta Lake project. Since its inception, Delta Lake has over 500 code contributors from a diverse set of organizations, and over 10,000 companies globally use Delta Lake to process 4+ exabytes of data on average each day.

Around the same time Delta Lake was created, Ryan Blue and Daniel Weeks developed the Iceberg project at Netflix and donated it to the Apache Software Foundation. Since then, Delta Lake and Iceberg have emerged as the two leading open source standards for lakehouse formats. Even though both of these formats are based on Apache Parquet and share similar goals and designs, they became incompatible due to independent development.

Over time a number of other open source and proprietary engines have adopted these formats. However, they usually adopted only one of the standards and more often than not, only part of that standard, leading to fragmented and siloed enterprise data, undermining the value of the lakehouse architecture.

The Road to Interoperability
Companies need data interoperability to realize the benefits of the lakehouse, and Databricks will work closely with the Delta Lake and Iceberg communities to bring interoperability to the formats over time. This is a long journey, one that will likely take several years to achieve in those communities. That is why last year, Databricks introduced Delta Lake UniForm. UniForm tables provide interoperability across Delta Lake, Iceberg, and Hudi, and support the Iceberg restful catalog interface so companies can use the analytics engines and tools they are already familiar with, across all their data. Generally available today, UniForm allows companies to achieve compatibility. With the addition of the original Iceberg team, Databricks will greatly broaden the ambitions of Delta Lake UniForm.

“Databricks pioneered the lakehouse and over the past four years, the world has embraced the lakehouse architecture, combining the best of data warehouses and data lakes to help customers decrease TCO, embrace openness, and deliver on AI projects faster. Unfortunately, the lakehouse paradigm has been split between the two most popular formats: Delta Lake and Iceberg. Databricks and Tabular will work with the open-source community to bring the two formats closer to each other over time, increasing openness, and reducing silos and friction for customers,” said Ali Ghodsi, Co-founder and CEO at Databricks. “Last year, we announced Delta Lake UniForm to bring interoperability to these two formats, and we’re thrilled to bring together the foremost leaders in open data lakehouse formats to make UniForm the best way to unify your data for every workload.”

A Shared Commitment to Openness
Databricks and Tabular share a history of championing open source formats. Both companies were founded to commercialize open source technologies created by the founders and today, Databricks is the largest and most successful independent open source company by revenue and has donated 12 million lines of code to open source projects. This acquisition highlights Databricks’ commitment to open formats and open source data in the cloud, helping ensure that companies are in control of their data and free from the lock-in created by proprietary vendor-owned formats.

“We created Apache Iceberg to solve critical data challenges around correctness, performance, and scalability. It’s been amazing to see both Iceberg and Delta Lake grow massively in popularity, largely fueled by the open lakehouse becoming the industry standard. With Tabular joining Databricks, we intend to build the best data management platform based on open lakehouse formats so that companies don’t have to worry about picking the ‘right’ format or getting locked into proprietary data formats,” said Ryan Blue, Co-Founder and CEO at Tabular.

To learn more about Databricks and Tabular joining forces, register to attend the Data + AI Summit, June 10-13: databricks.com/dataaisummit

Details Regarding the Proposed Acquisition
The proposed acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in Databricks’ second fiscal quarter.

About Tabular
Tabular is the independent data platform built by the original creators of Apache Iceberg. Tabular addresses the pain data engineers and data scientists endure fighting the shortcomings of their data infrastructure. Tabular was founded by Netflix alumni Ryan Blue, Dan Weeks and Jason Reid.

Cable home internet customers will now have a reliable way to stay connected when their service is down with the Un-carrier’s new Home Internet Backup plan

BELLEVUE, Wash. – June 05, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS):

What’s the news: Stay connected, not disrupted. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced Home Internet Backup, a new plan that will give traditional internet service provider (ISP) customers — like cable and fiber — an affordable, reliable, backup 5G internet connection in case their primary service goes down. As the fastest growing home internet provider in the U.S., T-Mobile already serves over five million customers nationwide with unlimited broadband plans like Home Internet and Home Internet Plus as a primary source of connectivity. But for the millions of people still getting internet through traditional ISPs, the Un-carrier is using the power of its 5G network to give cable customers an option to stay connected during unexpected outages.

Starting tomorrow, June 6, Home Internet Backup will be available in T-Mobile stores and online via chat at www.t-mobile.com/home-internet-backup

Why it matters: Nearly 20% of U.S. internet users said their internet goes out at least a few times a month, according to data from CivicScience. It’s something nearly everyone has experienced — at the most inconvenient time, the internet goes down and all productivity is lost. With T-Mobile’s new Home Internet Backup plan, cable and fiber internet customers can get peace of mind knowing they have a way to stay online during those unexpected outages.

Who it’s for: Cable and fiber internet customers looking for a reliable backup Wi-Fi solution to stay connected at home.

What else: Home Internet Backup from T-Mobile is just $30 a month with AutoPay — and customers that also have an eligible T-Mobile voice line can pick it up for just $20 a month with AutoPay for a limited time — and comes with:

  • 130 GB of 5G data a month. Enough to keep a typical household connected with Wi-Fi for up to seven days a month when their primary internet service goes down.
  • A 5G gateway included at no extra cost. There are NO monthly equipment fees at T-Mobile! Home Internet Backup customers get all the equipment they need, without paying a penny more.
  • Fast and easy setup. Go from box to browsing in 15 minutes or less with a simple self-install process. And when that primary connection goes down, quickly switch over to the T-Mobile Wi-Fi signal for connectivity.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is fixed wireless that leverages the power of the Un-carrier’s 5G network, the largest and most-awarded 5G network in the U.S., and is currently available to more than 50 million homes nationwide. For people who need more than a backup solution and are ready to ditch their current internet provider, T-Mobile has home broadband options that fit customer needs, including Home Internet which comes with no annual contracts or equipment fees, fast and easy set up and Price Lock, guaranteeing that customers can get their last month of service refunded if T-Mobile ever raises their rate for internet and they choose to leave within 60 days (taxes and fees excluded). Or, Home Internet Plus has all the great benefits of Home Internet and also comes with T-Mobile’s latest 5G gateway, a Wi-Fi mesh access point that expands the Wi-Fi signal to hard-to-reach places across the home and 24/7 video tech support for any Wi-Fi or smart connected devices in the home.

During congestion, customers on these plans may notice speeds lower than other customers and further reduction if using >1.2TB/mo., due to data prioritization. After 130GB monthly data allotment, speeds up to 600Kbps. Not available in all areas. $35 device connection charge due at sale. Regulatory fees included in monthly price for qualified accounts. Savings after $10 monthly bill credit. Limited-time offer; subject to change. Qualifying credit, voice line; and new Home Internet Backup Internet line required. If you have cancelled Internet lines in past 90 days, you may need to reactivate them first. AutoPay requires bank account or debit card, otherwise $5 more/line/mo. Price Lock guarantees regular monthly rate plan price of current internet data for new lines with qualifying service (the Home Internet Backup plan is not eligible for Price Lock). T-Mobile will pay your final monthly recurring service charge if we raise your rate and you tell us you are leaving within 60 days. See 5G device, coverage, & access details at T-Mobile.com

T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) is America’s supercharged Un-carrier, delivering an advanced 4G LTE and transformative nationwide 5G network that will offer reliable connectivity for all.

Bellevue, WA – June 5, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Synology today announced new ActiveProtect appliances, a purpose-built data protection lineup that combines centralized management with a highly scalable architecture for best-in-class ease of use.

“The launch of ActiveProtect reflects Synology’s unceasing commitment to empowering our users with the tools to manage their most valuable asset—data,” said Philip Wong, Chairman and CEO of Synology. “In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, businesses face unprecedented challenges in safeguarding their data. With the new ActiveProtect offering, we aim to empower organizations of all sizes to address cybersecurity challenges head-on.”

ActiveProtect centralizes organization-wide data protection policies, tasks, and appliances to offer a unified management and control plane. Comprehensive coverage for endpoints, servers, hypervisors, storage systems, databases, and Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace services dramatically reduce IT blind spots and the necessity of operating multiple data protection solutions.

“Organizations are tasked with maintaining overly complex and costly data protection strategies, and we aim to solve all the challenges at once with ActiveProtect,” stated Jia-Yu Liu, Executive Vice President at Synology. “ActiveProtect is the culmination of extensive research, development, and experience working with our customers. We are confident in delivering a solution that will exceed modern businesses’ expectations.”

Easy to deploy and manage
IT teams can quickly deploy ActiveProtect appliances in minutes and create comprehensive data protection plans via global policies using a centralized console. From implementing immutability and air gapping policies to performing recovery procedures, ActiveProtect is designed to be intuitive, significantly reducing operational overhead.

Scalable for any organization
Each ActiveProtect appliance can operate in standalone or cluster-managed modes. Storage capacity can be tiered with Synology NAS/SAN storage solutions, C2 Object Storage, and other ActiveProtect appliances in the cluster. Additionally, existing Synology Active Backup for Business deployments are manageable from the unified interface, providing high deployment flexibility.

Fast and efficient
Purpose-built ActiveProtect appliances leverage incremental backups with source-side, global, and cross-site deduplication to ensure fast backups and replication with minimal bandwidth usage. ActiveProtect is up to 7 times faster at backing up with a typical deduplication ratio of over 2:1, significantly reducing operating costs.

ActiveProtect will be available through Synology distributors and partners later in 2024. For more information about Synology’s data protection appliance series, please visit https://sy.to/activeprotect

TINTON FALLS, NJ – June 5, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Commvault, a leading provider of cyber resilience and data protection solutions for hybrid cloud organizations, is proud to announce that its SaaS-delivered data protection offerings have achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) High Authorization. This certification signifies that Commvault Cloud for Government can securely handle the most sensitive, controlled unclassified information (CUI) in cloud computing environments for government agencies and contractors, providing unmatched data protection and cyber resilience.

FedRAMP is a government certification program that provides a standardized security assessment for SaaS application vendors to become authorized to work with federal and state agencies in the United States. Built on a three-level framework, FedRAMP High Authorization, the highest level of security authorization within the program, ensures that cloud solutions meet the stringent security standards established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and can protect data in accordance with the U.S. government’s most rigorous security protocols.

Commvault’s achievement of FedRAMP High Authorization for its Commvault Cloud for Government SaaS-delivered data protection solution demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing government agencies with the highest level of data protection and cyber resilience, helping to ensure their critical data remains secure and available in the face of evolving cyber threats.

“We are thrilled to have achieved FedRAMP High Authorization for our Commvault Cloud for Government offering,” said Don Maruca, Vice President, Federal, Commvault. “This certification validates our dedication to delivering secure and reliable data protection solutions for government agencies. With our FedRAMP High Authorization, customers can have confidence in the security and cyber resilience of their data, knowing that it is protected by the strictest industry-leading protocols and benchmarks.”

Commvault Cloud elevates cyber resilience beyond the norm, making it easy to implement the recovery readiness and testing practices outlined in legislation like DORA and frameworks like NIST.

With features such as continuous cyber recovery plan testing and the ability to recover automatically to an isolated, secure cleanroom in the cloud, Commvault transforms immutable data storage into a proactive resilience mechanism. Government agencies can now safeguard their data while actively engaging with it to ensure uninterrupted operations and rapid response to cyber incidents.

Commvault Cloud’s FedRAMP High Authorization applies specifically to its Commvault Cloud for Government SaaS offerings. These dedicated solutions are designed to meet the unique needs of federal agencies and are hosted exclusively using government cloud deployment models, which are also compliant with U.S. government and federal regulations.

“The U.S. Department of the Treasury, as the initial agency supporting Commvault Cloud for Government (formerly Metallic), congratulates the FedRAMP team, our internal security team and Commvault for achieving the FedRAMP High Authorization as of 17 May 2024, the Federal government’s highest cybersecurity certification for protecting controlled unclassified information (CUI).”

“The FedRAMP team has completed the review of the Commvault Cloud for Government (formerly Metallic) authorization package and concluded FedRAMP High Authorization. FedRAMP acknowledges that this achievement is based on the support of Federal agencies such as the Department of the Treasury in their role as the initial agency to issue an ATO, Commvault as the CSP, and Coalfire and the Treasury security team as the independent assessors.”

“NIST has authorized and is currently using Commvault Cloud for Government (formerly Metallic). NIST commends the FedRAMP team and the Department of the Treasury in completing the approval of the FedRAMP High Authorization for Commvault Cloud for Government on 17 May 2024.”

“This certification is yet another clear indicator that Commvault Cloud is a critical tool for government agencies handling sensitive data in the cloud,” said Craig P. Abod, President, Carahsoft. “As a long-standing Commvault partner, we look forward to working with our reseller partners to provide these newly authorized solutions to our public sector customers. With its FedRAMP High Authorization, Commvault is now in a league of its own, going beyond data protection to provide top-tier data security and rapid recoverability from cyber attacks.”

New Mechanism Surfaces Unknown Risks and Enhances Efficiency for Security Analysts

National Harbor, MD — June 4, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Code42 Software, Inc., the leader in data loss and insider threat protection, today announced at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit that it has enhanced the Incydr data protection solution by adding a risk detection workflow that detects previously unknown risks and recommends new actions, providing security teams with stronger visibility into unknown threats.

Facing industry headwinds, including surging cybersecurity threats as well as a cybersecurity workforce shortage and skills gap, security analysts have limited time and resources to respond to insider-driven data loss incidents. Further, insider threats are costly; on average, insider-driven data exposure, loss, leak, and theft cost companies $15 million per incident. These costs are compounding, as there has been a 28% increase in insider-driven data exposure, loss, leak, and theft events since 2021.

With an enhanced detection workflow, Code42 Incydr data protection saves analysts time and resources by automatically surfacing important risks and recommended actions. This enhancement ensures the solution protects against both known and unknown risks. While customers may easily create custom alert rules to identify their known risks for key use cases, many unknown risks may currently evade customers due to the evolving nature of technology.

“Traditional data loss prevention tools only protect corporations against known risks,” said Dave Capuano, Senior Vice President of Product Management, Code42. “But as new technologies enter the workforce weekly, there are infinite unknown ways employees can share and exfiltrate corporate data. Incydr data protection can now easily surface your known and unknown risks so busy practitioners know where to start. For example, if there isn’t an alert rule configured to highlight when a departing employee shares files with a non-corporate Box account, Incydr’s data protection analytics will surface a system-generated alert for this activity. With this new feature, you can be confident that your organization is safeguarded – even from the risks you don’t know about.”

The Code42 Incydr detection workflow provides the following key benefits for security professionals:

  • Surfacing risky activity based on prioritization analytics to uncover and act upon unknown risk
  • User interaction and event-based analytics enable the model to continuously improve analyst workflow, reducing alert fatigue and ensuring focus on high-risk activity
  • Integrated controls that automate response to everyday mistakes, block the unacceptable, and free up your time to investigate the most important cases

With no policy creation, management, or updates required, analysts can focus on the risks that matter most to their business.

Availability
The Risk Recommendation workflow within the Code42 Incydr solution is available in early access for all customers.

Ambitious Growth Plan, State of the Market, and Continuous Product Innovation Drive Reimagined Branding

BOSTON, MA – June 4, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Nasuni, a leading enterprise data platform for hybrid cloud environments, announced the major repositioning of its entire brand identity, underpinned by the overall growth of the business and its continuous product innovation and versatility. New visuals, alongside refined messaging to align with its vision, will support Nasuni’s high-growth journey as a best-in-class data platform for enterprises requiring scale in hybrid cloud environments, safeguards against cyberattacks, and data management for AI use-cases.

Chief Marketing Officer Asim Zaheer at Nasuni, who led this branding initiative and has a portfolio of others including Hitachi Ventara, commented: “A brand identity is so much more than logos and colors – it’s the foundation of everything that represents a company and embodies its key values. Nasuni’s rebrand reflects a modern identity for a modern product, keeping pace with the company’s technological innovation. Additionally, this initiative encompasses the insights provided from our customers, industry experts, and top analyst firms.”

Today’s infrastructure teams are reckoning with an explosion of unstructured data, a market shift to hybrid environments, and an inability to get the most value out of their data. According to Gartner, an estimated 60% of enterprise data will be hybrid by 2027, up from 20% in 2023. This rapid rate of infrastructure change in the market demands a fluid and flexible approach, which was instrumental to the company’s reimagined brand.

Velocity Partners CEO Stan Woods, who collaborated with Nasuni on the new branding, commented: “A clear, compelling brand runs circles around a weak, unfocused brand every day of every week. Nasuni has combined a terrific brand story with its already strong tech advantage. The idea was to showcase new possibilities for infrastructure leaders, something so many Nasuni customers are already experiencing. It’s been fun to work with such a knowledgeable and motivated team in putting this new brand together.”

Nasuni’s new look and feel highlights an industry shift from rigid, hardware-based NAS solutions to more fluid, software-defined storage orchestrations in the hybrid cloud era. This notion builds on Nasuni’s legacy and reflects on its values around innovation and trust, while also modernizing key elements to showcase users’ current and future needs. In addition, the Nasuni File Data Platform has evolved a great deal in recent years, and the new branding highlights that level of evolution within the product. Nasuni’s branding initiative includes a website redesign, brand messaging, visuals, and logo refresh.

Details below:

  • Logo: The new logo is a symbol of the Nasuni brand essence, crafted into a single, horizontal design. Nasuni held tight to the idea of ‘three’ to represent the company’s preeminent product value pillars: effortless scalability, built-in security, and fast edge performance.
  • Logomark: For use in very small contexts, Nasuni distills its stylized “N” from the logo as a representation of the company. This distinctive logomark enhances Nasuni’s visibility across digital networks and reinforces its position as a confident, fresh, and authentic voice in the hybrid cloud market.
  • Visual Language: Nasuni’s distinctive visual language is a reflection of the fluid and flexible way to manage data and is defined by confidence, boldness, and instant recognizability. It communicates forward-thinking innovation, delivering a strategic advantage and attracting customers in a competitive landscape.
  • Liquid Flow: Using a high-impact, fluid design, the splash of liquid represents data that should flow easily and be available securely anywhere and at any time. In addition, the green within the fluid element is a nod to Nasuni’s legacy green color palette.
  • Graphical: The hexagon serves as a visual metaphor for the strength, efficiency, and services Nasuni offers, providing a solid boundary for the ever-evolving ‘fluid’ data. Together, the two elements represent the balance between data management and the fluid nature of data itself. It’s a testament to our approach: Stable, yet flexible. Grounded in reliability, but always flowing.

David Grant, president at Nasuni, added: “Since our inception, Nasuni’s differentiator and main focus has been its customers, employees, and products. As we enter our next stage as a high-growth company, our refreshed brand represents the fluid nature of data infrastructure for a rapidly evolving hybrid AI world. Our file data platform is the key to managing cost, delivering outstanding data performance, providing world-class data protection, and enabling AI innovation. Our new brand communicates this more simply and succinctly.”

This announcement follows another year of rapid growth for Nasuni, which added more than 120+ new large enterprise customers across all verticals. Nasuni’s product innovation is helping drive its strong momentum, including the recent launch of Nasuni Edge for Amazon S3 to deliver high performance at the edge and Nasuni IQ to help enterprises unlock data silos for AI services. Nasuni has also made the following key leadership appointments in the past year: Michael Sotnick to Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development; Nick Burling to Senior Vice President of Product; Matthew Grantham to Head of Worldwide Partners; Jim Liddle to Chief Innovation Officer; Russ Kennedy to Chief Evangelist; and Asim Zaheer to Chief Marketing Officer.

“Customers each have unique needs but a common goal – securing and gaining insight from their data. They trust Cohesity, in part, because we strive to offer the largest ecosystem with the most choices to suit their preferences,” said John Davidson, group vice president, Americas Sales, Cohesity. “By supporting AMD EPYC CPU-powered servers, we’re opening up new options for our customers to customize and modernize their data center, increasing performance and delivering energy, space, and cost savings so they can execute their data security and management strategy on their preferred hardware configurations.”

All-flash servers have become an increasingly popular choice for organizations with high-demand applications and workloads, stringent power budgets for their data centers, or increasing storage capacity requirements and little physical space within their data center. Leveraging the performance, cost efficiency, and energy efficiency of AMD EPYC CPUs, Cohesity now delivers compelling AMD-powered all-flash servers from HPE to modernize customer data centers and meet the requirements of green initiatives through the greater density, performance, and cost savings all-flash servers provide over traditional servers. Single-socket 1U HPE servers based on AMD EPYC can reduce the number of required nodes and power costs by up to 33% when compared with dual-socket 2U servers based on other CPUs. Additionally, through the HPE Secure Supply Chain, Cohesity’s software is preloaded at the factory, reducing deployment and increasing the security of the overall solution.

“Businesses increasingly demand more from their data centers to meet their business needs —more performance, more energy efficiency, more cost savings,” said Kumaran Siva, corporate vice president, Strategic Market Development, AMD. “AMD is uniquely positioned to help meet the demands of the modern data center while enabling technology partners, like Cohesity, to deliver business critical applications like their AI-powered data security and management capabilities.”

Veeam’s new secure cloud storage offering built on Microsoft Azure and integrated into Veeam Backup & Replication brings the power of a predictably priced, infinitely scalable cloud storage target built on the principles of zero trust data resilience

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – June 04, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — VeeamON — Veeam® Software, the #1 leader by market share in Data Protection and Ransomware Recovery, today introduced Veeam Data Cloud Vault, a cloud-based storage service that enables users to securely store backup data not only off-site, but in an always-immutable and encrypted format, providing additional layers of protection for critical information. Showcased live for the first time at VeeamON 2024, enterprises can leverage this new Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) offering from Veeam to store, manage and access data without having to design, implement and manage cloud or physical storage infrastructure aligned to zero trust principles.

“Eighty-five percent of organizations that suffered a cyber-attack last year are now using cloud storage that offers immutability, according to the Veeam Ransomware Trends Report 2024,” said Anand Eswaran, CEO at Veeam. “Storing a backup of your data offsite is an essential part of any backup strategy and it’s critical to rapid, clean recovery from an outage or a cyber-attack. New Veeam Data Cloud Vault meets this demand of enterprises by delivering an added level of data protection, cyber resilience, compliance adherence, faster recovery, and prevention against insider threats. These factors collectively contribute to strengthening the overall security posture of organizations without breaking the bank.”

Veeam Vault delivers a pre-configured and fully-managed cloud storage resource on Azure that eliminates customer headaches of securely architecting infrastructure and unpredictable cloud cost models – key challenges of both enterprise and SMB organizations. Instead of managing their own cloud or physical storage infrastructure, organizations can immediately leverage Veeam Vault to store, manage and access their data in a predictably priced subscription model. Veeam Vault pricing includes not just the storage component, but also the necessary API calls to write to that storage in an immutable format, as well as read and egress data in the event of a recovery – eliminating the bill shock encountered by organizations that don’t consider all required costs for cloud backup. Users can access the service through Veeam’s software interface, manage their storage requirements, and easily scale storage needs as their requirements evolve over time. Users also benefit from the reliability and disaster recovery capabilities offered by the cloud storage provider.

Veeam Vault is purpose-built to empower Veeam Data Platform users with the secure cloud storage needed for backups. Whether wanting to directly write Veeam Data Platform backups to Veeam Vault or complement on-premises storage as part of a 3-2-1-1-0 backup strategy with copying and/or tiering, Veeam Vault is:

  • Secure: Safeguard data on Zero Trust storage that’s immutable, encrypted and logically air-gapped from production.
  • Easy: Access and use on-demand, fully managed Azure storage with zero configuration, management or integration complexities.
  • Predictable: Eliminate bill shock with flat per TB pricing that meets an organization’s needs today and tomorrow – inclusive of API calls, restore and egress charges.

“Absolutely certain data survival with assured data integrity is foundational to recovering from any data loss event, especially cyber-attacks,” said Phil Goodwin, research vice president, IDC. “Storing data offsite in an air gapped, immutable, encrypted vault can provide this data survival and integrity certainty. Veeam Data Cloud Vault enhances Veeam’s cyber recovery capabilities using Storage as-a-service (STaaS) delivery. Based on zero trust principles, Veeam Vault can give customers an easy-to-use cloud vaulting option fully wrapped in Veeam services.”

As demand for Veeam Vault accelerates, Veeam will continue to deliver new capabilities throughout 2024. These capabilities will help organizations:

  • Optimize costs further with the addition of colder and archive-class object storage tiers, particularly for older and/or secondary backups where slower restore performance is an acceptable trade-off for lower cost long-term retention.
  • Drive greater efficiencies by centrally managing and monitoring all aspects of Veeam Vault through tighter integration with the single UI of Veeam Data Platform.

New Veeam Data Cloud Vault is available now via Azure Marketplace for a single fee per TB/month based on region, and includes storage, write/read APIs, and egress. For more information, visit www.veeam.com.

VeeamON 2024
Veeam Data Cloud Vault is being showcased at the 10th annual VeeamON event, taking place June 3 – 5, 2024 at the Diplomat Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and online.

  • Majority of New Applications Will Be Built in Cloud-Native Platforms: Over the next five years, 80% of respondents confirmed that all or most of their new applications will be built in cloud-native platforms. For their cloud-native technology, they prefer the flexibility of deploying in hybrid cloud environments, with 86% confirming they run their cloud-native technology across both public and private clouds.
  • Traditional VM Infrastructure is at an Inflection Point: More than half (58%) of organizations plan to migrate some of their VM workloads to Kubernetes, with 65% planning to migrate VM workloads within the next two years.
  • Data on Kubernetes Accelerates Application Delivery: Nearly all (98%) of respondents run data-intensive workloads on cloud-native platforms, with critical apps like databases (72%), analytics (67%), and AI/ML workloads (54%) being built on Kubernetes.
  • Platform Engineering is Vital for Cloud-Native Success: Ninety-six percent (96%) of respondents state they already have platform engineering teams to increase the scalability and flexibility of their apps. Executives have shown willingness to invest in training (63%), consultants (60%), and hiring skilled engineers (52%) to support this function.

Organizations recognize supporting VMs and containers on multiple platforms is challenging and expensive, so 58% plan to migrate some of their applications from VM management to Kubernetes by using technologies like Kubevirt and Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization.

Industry Significance:
The rise of cloud-native platforms marks a fundamental shift in how businesses conceptualize, develop, and deploy applications at scale. Recognizing the benefits, organizations are migrating their VMs to cloud-native platforms to drive enhanced scalability, flexibility, and operational simplicity – all while reducing overall costs.

Amid this transformation, Kubernetes has matured from an emerging technology to a cornerstone for modern applications over the past decade, supporting the most data intensive workloads that fuel enterprise innovation – from real-time analytics to AI and machine learning to databases, and more. This shift has elevated the role of platform engineering, responsible for managing the infrastructure that enables efficient application development, deployment, and management within containerized environments.

Executive Insight:

  • “Experienced platform leaders are running mission-critical applications like databases, analytics, and AI/ML on Kubernetes at massive scale in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. It’s no surprise that these platform leaders are also paving the way for VMs to be managed by Kubernetes without compromising enterprise requirements, supported by solutions like Red Hat OpenShift and Portworx. The latest findings underscore the urgency of elevating the platform engineering role to manage infrastructure alongside the application stack for seamless innovation.”  Murli Thirumale, VP & GM, Portworx by Pure Storage
  • “The latest Portworx by Pure Storage data findings confirm what we’ve seen across industries: cloud-native strategies are becoming more prominent with organizations now focusing on operationalizing cloud-native environments with data, security, sustainability and cost considerations. The advancements in cloud-native stacks and platform engineering is facilitating faster development and a balanced co-existence of VMs and containers. While migrating VM-based applications to Kubernetes remains challenging, robust data services and container platforms are making it possible, enabling accelerated development, seamless management, automation, and optimized IT infrastructure.” – Archana Venkatraman, Senior Research Director, Cloud Data Management, IDC

Results of the Veeam 2024 Ransomware Trends Report find that cyberattacks not only impact organizations but have a negative human impact, as 45% of individuals cite increased workloads and 40% experience heightened stress levels post-attack

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – VeeamON — June 4, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Ransomware remains an ongoing threat for organizations and is the largest single cause of IT outages and downtime as 41% of data is compromised during a cyberattack, according to the latest Veeam® 2024 Ransomware Trends Report. The report reveals that only 57% of the compromised data will be recovered, leaving organizations vulnerable to substantial data loss and negative business impact as a result.

“Ransomware is endemic, impacting 3 out of 4 organizations in 2023. AI is now enabling the creation of smarter, more advanced security, but it’s also facilitating growth in the volume of sophistication of attacks,” said Dave Russell, Senior Vice President, Head of Strategy at Veeam. “Our report delivers a clear message: ransomware attacks will continue, be more severe than predicted, and the overall impact will cost organizations more than they expect. Organizations must take action to ensure cyber resiliency and acknowledge that rapid, clean recovery matters most. By aligning teams and bolstering cybersecurity with immutable backups, they can protect their valuable business data while Veeam keeps their business running and secure.”

The third annual Veeam 2024 Ransomware Trends Report draws insights from vetted organizations that experienced at least one successful cyberattack in the preceding 12 months. With 1,200 responses analyzed, comprising executives, information security professionals, and backup administrators, the report provides a comprehensive overview of the evolving threat landscape.

The toll on the organization’s people
Cyber-attacks naturally affect an organization’s financial stability, but just as significant is the toll it has on teams and individuals. When a cyberattack strikes, 45% of respondents reported heightened pressure on IT and security teams. Additionally, 26% experienced a loss of productivity, while 25% encountered disruptions to internal or customer-related services.

The report shows that the human impact of cyberattacks cannot be overstated. 45% of surveyed individuals cited increased workload post-attack, while 40% reported heightened stress levels and other personal challenges that are difficult to mitigate on ‘normal’ days. These challenges, coupled with existing organizational struggles, further underscore the importance of effective cyber defense strategies.

Organizations are misaligned for preparedness
Despite increased focus on cyber-preparedness, organizations still face a misalignment between their backup and cyber teams. For the third consecutive year, close to two-thirds (63%) of organizations find their backup and cyber teams lacking synchronization. Adding to the misalignment challenges in organizations, 61% of security professionals and 75% of backup admins believe that the teams need either ‘significant improvement’ or that a complete system overhaul is required.

Paying the ransom does not ensure recoverability
For the third year in a row, the majority (81%) of organizations surveyed paid the ransom to end an attack and recover data. One in three of these organizations that paid the ransom still could not recover even after paying. And also for the third year in a row, more organizations ‘paid, but could not recover’ than those organizations that ‘recovered without paying.’

Unveiling the true financial impact
Contrary to the belief that having cyber insurance increases the likelihood of ransom payments, Veeam’s research indicates otherwise. Despite only a minority of organizations possessing a policy to pay, 81% opted to do so. Interestingly, 65% paid with insurance and another 21% had insurance but chose to pay without making a claim. This implies that in 2023, 86% of organizations had insurance coverage that could have been utilized for a cyber event.

The ransoms paid averages to be only 32% of the overall financial impact to an organization post-attack. Moreover, cyber insurance will not cover the entirety of the total costs associated with an attack. Only 62% of the overall impact is in some way reclaimable through insurance or other means, with everything else going against the organization’s bottom-dollar budget.

Relying on a “good backup”

  • The most common component of a cyber preparedness playbook is a “good backup.” While cyber and backup teams may not always be organizationally aligned, when asked about the existence of an incident response team (IRT) and whether that team had a playbook, a mere 2% of organizations lacked a pre-identified team. Additionally, only 3% had teams but without a playbook in place.

Other key findings from the Veeam 2024 Ransomware Trends Report include:

  • Cloud and on-premises data are just as easily attackable: Surprisingly, there was no significant variation between how much data was affected within the data center vs. data within remote offices/branch offices or even on data hosted in a public or private cloud. Meaning that all IT infrastructure is just as seamlessly available to the attacker as it is easily accessible to the users.
  • Most organizations risk reintroducing infections: Alarmingly, almost two-thirds (63%) of organizations are at risk of reintroducing infections while recovering from ransomware attacks or significant IT disasters. Pressured to restore IT operations quickly and influenced by executives, many organizations skip vital steps, such as rescanning data in quarantine, causing the likelihood of IT teams to inadvertently restore infected data or malware.
  • Organizations must ensure recoverable data: As a ‘lesson learned’, respondents of prior cyberattacks now recognize the importance of immutability with 75% of organizations now utilizing on-premises disks that can be hardened and 85% are utilizing cloud-storage with immutability capabilities. In fact, half of their overall backup storage is immutable, highlighting good improvements but with more work to be done.

The full Veeam 2024 Ransomware Trends Report is available now for download at https://vee.am/RW24 and as part of sessions at VeeamON 2024, the community event for data recovery experts, taking place online June 3-5 and in person in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
