Seagate Technology plc promulgates new and updated Hybrid Cloud Data Protection solutions that enable customers to manage explosive data growth and increasingly complex security needs easily and cost effectively.
The updated hybrid cloud solutions in Seagate’s portfolio include: Seagate Backup and Recovery Software, Seagate Cloud Backup and Recovery Services, Seagate Backup and Recovery Private Cloud, and Seagate Data Management Services. These solutions will be delivered by Seagate, its value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to customers from small and medium sized businesses up through large enterprises for private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.
Commenting on the commencement, Jason Buffington, senior analyst of data protection at the Enterprise Strategy Group said “Organizations of all sizes are moving to the cloud for a variety of reasons – and data protection is certainly among the top ones.” “To meet users’ expectations of data availability and recoverability, on-premises solutions are paramount, but the cloud absolutely has a role to play in backup and disaster recovery preparedness, as well as offsite/long-term data retention. It is worth noting that IT needs have finally caught up to what Seagate’s EVault technology has been offering for nearly a decade: a heterogeneous, turnkey backup appliance with tightly-coupled cloud extensibility. What will be interesting to watch is the continued scale, speed and management innovation recently announced, as well as the portfolio assimilation by Seagate, as they continue to be in front of what IT is looking for in a disk-plus-cloud hybrid approach to data protection.”
Skip Womack, chief commercial officer at Pixius Communications says Seagate is a time saver, sleep saver, and money saver. As a past CIO for a couple of Fortune 500 companies, I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on backup solutions that were so labor intensive, slow, and just did not meet my needs. Seagate, hands down, puts these concerns to rest.
Seagate’s Backup and Recovery Software and Cloud Backup and Recovery Services now deliver up to 400% performance improvement in the speed of backup, restore and replication. The software is optimized to deliver the highest possible backup and recovery throughput, and can handle up to 6TB of compressed data per hour (read speeds) on a single module for a real-world mix of jobs.
Seagate’s new software and Backup and Recovery Private Cloud will be available in the US and EMEA at the end of August.
