Seagate Technology (NASDAQ:STX), a global provider of storage solutions, has announced new and updated Hybrid Cloud Data Protection solutions that would enable customers to manage explosive data growth and increasingly complex security needs easily and cost effectively.
The new and updated hybrid cloud solutions in Seagate’s portfolio include: Seagate Backup and Recovery Software, Seagate Cloud Backup and Recovery Services, Seagate Backup and Recovery Private Cloud, and Seagate Data Management Services. These solutions will be delivered by Seagate, its value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to customers from small and medium sized businesses up through large enterprises for private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.
Seagate’s new software and Backup and Recovery Private Cloud will be available in the US and EMEA at the end of August.
“Organizations of all sizes are moving to the cloud for a variety of reasons – and data protection is certainly among the top ones,” said Jason Buffington, senior analyst of data protection at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “To meet users’ expectations of data availability and recoverability, on-premises solutions are paramount, but the cloud absolutely has a role to play in backup and disaster recovery preparedness, as well as offsite/long-term data retention. It is worth noting that IT needs have finally caught up to what Seagate’s EVault technology has been offering for nearly a decade: a heterogeneous, turnkey backup appliance with tightly-coupled cloud extensibility.”
Up to 6TB
Seagate’s Backup and Recovery Software and Cloud Backup and Recovery Services would deliver up to 400% performance improvement in the speed of backup, restore and replication than the previous Seagate EVault offering, making it possible for organizations of all sizes to protect large and growing datasets within their standard backup window without impacting their production environments. The software is optimized to deliver the highest possible backup and recovery throughput, and can handle up to 6TB of compressed data per hour (read speeds) on a single module for a real-world mix of jobs.
“Today our customers and partners are faced with explosive data growth, compliance requirements, the cost and complexity of non-traditional applications like the Internet of Things, big data and the ongoing transition to software-as-a-service,” said Mike Palmer, senior vice president and general manager of cloud solutions, Seagate Technology. “At the same time IT budgets are not increasing, security threats continue to put organizations at risk and data center operations are taking more time away from the core business. Today we are responding to each of these challenges – through new performance, scale, availability and management solutions, which drive out operational complexity and give our customers and partners time back to run their core business.”
