Problem

While leading cloud storage providers deliver cost-effective object storage, such as Amazon S3 and Glacier, Azure Blob Storage, Google Nearline and Coldline, they don’t always provide a straightforward way to deploy and integrate their “cold” storage tier into a customer’s existing infrastructure.

Despite many vendors presenting different solutions for configuring cloud synchronization and managing backups, it is often a challenging task for the IT staff to properly select and deploy the required software or hardware and integrate the separate components into a single system.

Additionally, it is hard to find backup solutions with “smart” data de-staging for offloading backups, first, to the faster and more expensive storage tier and, then, to the slower and more cost-efficient one.

Solution

StarWind VTL for AWS and Veeam ultimately adds the cloud storage tier to the backup infrastructure ensuring compliance with the 3-2-1 backup rule. It provides effortless integration of the cost-efficient “cold” object storage without the need for installing several third-party software components.

Conclusion

StarWind VTL complements your current backup infrastructure. It creates an additional backup copy allowing to meet the regulatory requirements for having tape backups and significantly decreasing backup costs. The solution increases the backup process speed to avoid the overlapping of backup jobs with production time and ensures the stable performance of the system.

What is more, StarWind VTL for AWS and Veeam provides cloud deployment scenario, replacing expensive local storage with cost-efficient cloud storage like Amazon S3 and Glacier. StarWind VTL seamlessly integrates into existing backup infrastructure as a “fire and forget solution”. After the VTL device settings and retention policies are configured, the backups will be stored and automatically de-staged to cloud storage saving time and efforts of the IT staff.

Key benefits
Key benefits

StarWind VTL for AWS and Veeam conjoins with both performance and capacity optimized object storage like Amazon S3 and Glacier delivering significant benefits:

D2D2C Backup
Strategy

Implementation of Disk-to-Disk-to-Cloud (D2D2C) backup strategy. Being a variation D2D2T approach, it replaces local tape drives with inexpensive “tape in cloud” storage, delivering higher flexibility and cost-efficiency.

Ransomeware
Protection

Ransomware can't access and encrypt tape libraries so virtual tape is a safer backup repository compared to NAS or SAN. Additional copies in Amazon S3 and Glacier deliver complete data security even if the entire on-premises infrastructure is compromised.

Veeam Ready
Solution

StarWind VTL is a Veeam Ready solution. Each software component has been pre-tested and checked for compatibility. It just works!

Smart Backups
De-staging

Ability to “tier” backups between cloud storage with different performance and efficiency characteristics for maintaining low cost per GB without compromising RTO.

Success Stories

We were able to build 2-node storage clusters based on virtualization in 19 hypermarkets without any problems and with high cost-efficiency.

Vass Sandor, IT Infrastructure Leader

By being able to virtualize our environment with StarWind, we were able to retire some old hardware, get our services highly available, reduce power consumption and heat in our server closet.

David Gardner, Information Systems Manager

We are satisfied with StarWind. The support is really fantastic. Whenever any issue arises, the response is very prompt, and solution is immediate.

Srinivas Kouda, Company’s Representative

StarWind got us off the clustered environment, which was a big help. So, I could regain control of my storage and reclaim and redistribute the space we desperately needed.

Ryan Fulton, Company’s Representative

Price + Simplicity. StarWind VSAN offers great pricing and allows us to get work done without expensive custom hardware. It also makes getting back online quick and easy after an outage or hardware failure.

Aaron Hayes, IT Manager

We chose StarWind Mainly because of the cost compared to other vendors. Simplicity of setup was also a major factor and I like the fact that you don’t need a vendor certified engineer to perform the installation.

John Harris, Windows System Administrator,
Department of Physics, University of Oxford

Because of recommendations of older colleagues, with StarWind, we got a reliable storage with no additional hardware. There was a need to increase IT infrastructure performance and we saw StarWind as the most cost-effective solution.

Željko Medić, Director of IT Department

StarWind is the best storage product I have ever used! It satisfies and exceeds requirements.
