Seagate Technology has unveiled a hybrid cloud backup and recovery data protection solution spanning small and midsize business to enterprise customers that claims to deliver up to 400% performance improvements. Targeting private, public and hybrid cloud deployments, the solution is designed to assist customers in managing the simultaneous explosion in data growth and complexity of security needs—easily and at a low cost.
The offerings include: Seagate Backup and Recovery Software, Seagate Cloud Backup and Recovery Services, Seagate Backup and Recovery Private Cloud, and Seagate Data Management Services.
Historically, backup and recovery times are painfully slow. Seagate claims that its backup and recovery products are rapidly deployed, has a minimize backup time, restores data instantaneously and streamline management. The company’s management service enable the analysis of data usage without manual intervention and advise on the most cost effective storage tier for the data, while meeting compliance requirements, policy enforcement and data governance.
Given a 400% performance improvement in backup, restore and replication speed, organizations can protect burgeoning datasets in a standard backup window and this will not impact production environments. The software handles up to 6TB of compressed data per hour (read speeds) on a single module for mixed jobs.
The Backup and Recovery Private Cloud supports multi-tenancy, delivering speed, virtually unlimited scale, and high availability. Managed service providers or enterprise customers can start with limited storage capacity and grow to petabytes (PB) scale, scaling up to 1PB in two racks of tier-1 storage and 2PB in one rack of tier-2 storage.
The new offerings move the company away from its long-standing EVault product name to use Seagate Hybrid Cloud Data Protection—stating that customers prefer the Seagate brand.
Seagate’s Backup and Recovery Private Cloud will be available in the U.S. and EMEA at the end of August.
