Multi-Cloud Backup and Archiving

Cloud, Containers, VM’s, Ransomware and Governance. It’s a lot. It’s time for Intelligent Data Management that’s easy to use, cost-effective, scalable and proven.

Every organization relies on data. Customer data, product data, employee data, financial data – all data makes an organization successful.

Any public or private cloud needs backup solutions. Each cloud is highly available, but protecting data is your responsibility.

Smartis is providing Traditional backup solutions from the day of existence. But the things have changed, Cloud backup is on the minds of IT leaders now. While enterprise cloud backup solutions have been available for some time, adoption is now increasing. As IT organizations look to be more agile, lower costs provide the opportunity for innovation and many are looking to cloud backup.

Cloud backup is storing a copy of essential data in a safe location. Cloud backup can be applied for resources that are on-premises or are applied to resources residing in the cloud, such as IaaS virtual machines, PaaS databases, or SaaS applications, which are also managed with cloud backup.

Each public cloud providers, like Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, Oracle and Google Cloud Platform, offer multiple options for data backups, as these options are also offered by traditional backup vendors like IBM, Commvault, etc.

Organizations have backup and recovery policies that guide when data should be copied and a backup copy sent to a storage location. Most of organizations, when using traditional backup solutions, back up data to tape storage, disk storage or virtual tape libraries.

Object storage (cost-effective and scalable cloud storage for unstructured data) is the primary data resource used in the cloud, used for storage, archiving and backup and is also increasingly used by on-premise solutions. Object storage is growing for the following reasons:

It is designed for scale in many ways (multi-site, multi-tenant, massive amounts of data).
It is easy to use and yet meets the growing demands of enterprises for a broad expanse of applications and workloads.
It allows users to balance storage cost, location and compliance control requirements across data sets and essential applications

Due to its characteristics, object storage is becoming a significant storage repository for active archive of unstructured data, both for public and private clouds.


Why cloud backup software is better than cloud native tools?

Many native tools require manual processes, “recipes” to follow and/or writing scripts, all of which are susceptible to human error that can create problems with the execution, leave data exposed or cause failures in the process.
Native cloud backup tools usually do not provide deduplication. Most organizations find huge storage savings with cloud backup deduplication tools, saving storage time, cost and effort.
Native cloud backup tools also do not provide granular recovery. If you need to recover just a file located within a virtual machine, most native cloud recovery options – and many smaller cloud backup products – do not allow granular recovery. With cloud native backup, you may recover an entire snapshot, but you will have trouble finding exactly the information you need.
A cloud backup software product can automate processes and save time.
A cloud backup software product can backup public or private cloud resources, which leads to huge savings.

Our solutions includes native integration into today’s top public clouds, which provides a highly secure option for backup. Native integration reduces the work, streamlines the process and provides a level of security that you need.
