Although compute clouds have evolved into robust environments for standing up business applications, they still demand data backup and disaster recovery plans like those found in on-premise IT. In spite of cloud provider redundancy and SLAs, organizations using the cloud are ultimately responsible for maintaining data accessibility and availability in the event of an outage. These outages can take the form of provider service interruptions, user errors, viruses or even data loss. Today, it is standard practice for traditional enterprises to extend data protection and backup off-site. Similarly, organizations running business-critical cloud compute environments need to consider extending data protection off-site or “off-cloud.” However, due to the paucity of options for extending data backup off-cloud, this essential protection of cloud investment is frequently forgotten.
Simple Off-Cloud Backup and Data Protection
TwinStrata CloudArray enables organizations that have invested in cloud compute environments to replicate or backup their data to a choice of separate cloud providers or locations. Cloud-to-cloud backup is an ideal data protection strategy for organizations without on-premise IT facilities and all of their compute infrastructure in the cloud.
CloudArray virtual appliance runs natively in a number of cloud environments and seamlessly extends in-cloud storage and backup to virtually any external cloud storage. CloudArray cloud storage gateway features dynamic caching, in-flight/at-rest data encryption, data reduction, bandwidth optimization, snapshots to external clouds and ability to access restored data from anywhere. CloudArray enables organizations to make their cloud data and applications more resilient, with recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) that protect their business against both outages and catastrophic loss.
Protect business-critical cloud applications and data. It only takes minutes to stand up CloudArray in the cloud. Off-cloud backup is as simple as connecting backup software to CloudArray or utilizing CloudArray’s native asynchronous replication and snapshots. Recover data instantly and virtually anywhere.
