Simplifying hybrid cloud data protection on any scale

LAS VEGAS, NV – February 23, 2015 — / — Cobalt Iron is showcasing the next generation of Adaptive Data Protection for the hybrid cloud at IBM InterConnect 2015, the premier cloud & mobile conference in Las Vegas, February 22-26. Cobalt Iron’s single solution protects enterprise platforms, systems, and applications – simplifying data protection on any scale.

Cobalt Iron (IBM InterConnect Booth #854) will preview the forthcoming release of its proven Cobalt Iron Adaptive Data Protection solution, a recovery focused hybrid cloud backup solution with appliance-accelerated performance for 5 to 2500 terabytes of data. Combining the simplicity of cloud backup with the efficiency of global policy management and sophisticated data protection analytics, Cobalt Iron takes data protection to a new level.

“For businesses with large, critical data sets, conventional backup products are expensive to maintain and cloud backup is simply too slow,” said Cobalt Iron CEO and Founder, Richard Spurlock. “Cobalt Iron speeds the whole process of hybrid cloud data protection with analytics, global policy management and on-site autonomic appliances that streamline, automate and accelerate even the most intensive backup and recovery operations. Cobalt Iron transforms essential backup, restore and recovery processes from an endless engineering-intensive function into a cohesive and highly adaptive data protection service.”

Plus, Cobalt Iron’s straightforward pricing allows a predictable operational expenditure, eliminating licensing complexity and expanding capital costs. This pricing model, coupled with the ability to scale the solution up and down to accommodate enterprise systems, data centers, remote offices/branches, and data sizes makes it an ideal data protection solution for organization of any size or complexity.

At IBM InterConnect, clients from Capital City Bank and Westar Energy will present the dramatic efficiency gains, cost savings and confidence they have realized by deploying Cobalt Iron Adaptive Data Protection.

“We have eliminated about 80% of the time we previously spent managing our backup solution since deploying Cobalt Iron” said Travis Cooper, VP and IT Manager for Capital City Bank. “The service eliminates a lot of worry by making sure the servers are healthy, dealing with failures, ensuring recoverability, and taking care of updates and patches. I definitely do not lose any sleep over backups any more.”
