Local Backup

Local Area Backup

Server Backup has a local solution that moves beyond the single application of online backup. Our local solution provides secure data storage, data sharing, archiving, and fast disaster recovery to an alternate site, in addition to offsite data backup. It includes a locally installed storage appliance on-site at the client site. It contains a cloud gateway engine that securely handles any data stored. Specifically:

It will not run out of space. The client can scale their cloud storage up and down based on need and will not have to upgrade the system due to capacity constraints.

All data stored on the device benefits from secure cloud storage. This reduces the overhead of managing a separate backup process for the device

The client can choose best of breed applications for each of their strategic goals (audits, financial apps, backup, archiving, failover, disaster recovery, etc) without regard to an application’s specific support for the cloud.

A multi-site global file system allows for fast recovery to any alternate location during a site disaster (fire, flood, etc). The solution includes 24-hour hardware replacement.

Server Backup can host a secondary gateway at one of our data centers to provide for immediate fail over storage-access to our data center in the event of a site disaster.

This appliance will contain a cloud gateway engine that connects to our multi-datacenter cloud. The platform will provide data protection and cloud storage for any application that utilizes the appliance for storage. Specifically, the proposed solution provides a FIPS 140-2 certified secure cloud storage gateway that compresses, de-duplicates, encrypts, stores, and snapshots all data in a completely US based multi-site cloud.

The device itself does not run out of space. Clients can scale their cloud storage up and down based on need and will not have to upgrade the system due to capacity constraints. Since all data stored on the device benefits from secure cloud storage, then any application that supports network based storage (NAS) can utilize the device and benefit from the cloud. This allows the Client to choose best of breed applications for each of their strategic goals (audits, financial apps, backup, archiving, failover, disaster recovery, etc) without regard to an application’s specific support for the cloud.

A multi-site global file system allows for fast recovery to any alternate location during failure. Additionally, we can host a secondary gateway at one of our data centers. This allows the Client immediate fail over storage-access to our data center in the event of a disaster.

The overall monthly cost of the project will be based on the amount of data stored in the cloud. The per gigabyte cost is typically less than most other backup providers. All data stored on the local applicance will be de-duplicated, compressed, encrypted, and stored in our cloud.

The nature of the device cache means that the device can hold more than 15TB of storage. It will not run out of space as long as you scale the cloud storage behind it.

This appliance supports CIFS (and optionally NFS) access. It can integrate into Active Directory and is immediately available as a NAS storage server. Any data stored on the shares immediately benefit from the offsite replication and cloud based snapshots. No additional data backups are required.
