For organizations who want to unlock the true potential of data archives right in the cloud turning them into an easy-to-reach working data copy, StarWind and Cloudian deliver an end-to-end secure secondary backup & archive storage solution for replacing physical tape backup with zero changes to the established tape-centric backup process. Enterprise Data Protection Storage with StarWind and Cloudian provides a virtualized tape library which combines all the benefits of tape and Cloudian HyperStore: performance, security, non-disruptive limitless scaling with tiering to the public cloud, and native integration into any backup infrastructure.
Scale your capacity easily using Cloudian HyperStore, the most fully compatible, full-featured, S3 object storage array. Maximize storage cost-efficiency and security by replicating and tiering your backups to Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform or any other public cloud provider. Minimize integration time, since tape devices seamlessly integrate into any legacy or new backup infrastructure. Finally, have peace of mind with your backups as data in the virtual tape is stored offline. This makes the VTL solution inherently ransomware-resilient.
Compared to bolt-on file/block APIs on top of S3, the solution offers considerably higher performance. No Read-Modify-Write access patterns. No sub-object changes: one tape = one object. Virtual Tapes are used in WORM (Write Once Read Many) mode. Enterprise Data Protection Storage with StarWind and Cloudian seamlessly replaces or augments your existing tape backup infrastructure with storage that’s more efficient and scalable, that lowers the CapEx and OpEx, decreases the RTO and RPO and keeps company data compliant with regulations.
The solution integrates into any existing backup infrastructure. It achieves that because 99.9% of backup applications use tape as a backup target or as primary archive storage. The VTL interface allows any legacy or modern system to work with object storage, with zero backup policy changes or upgrades.
Virtual Tape is an offline media. Once ejected, there’s no access without proprietary APIs. This is a massive security advantage over file/block/S3 access. Also, note that infected data cannot get outside the virtual tape container.
Fast data recovery, even from offsite copies. Minimized cost and time for DR site data shipping and retrieval. Per-bucket, policy-based data protection with centralized management.
Capacity and performance scale together in a transparent and predictable way.
Improved over the tape with naturally ransomware resilient media and eliminated manual media handling, multi-tenancy for secure isolation between organizations or units.
Eliminates manual labor for day-to-day tasks, physical media handling, and offsite media shipping efforts. No hidden scaling costs with limitless storage scalability.
