New Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure Ensures Business Continuity That's Fast, Easy-to-Use, Simple to Deploy and Affordable

Grazed from Veeam Software

Veeam Software, the Availability for the Always-On Enterprise innovator, today announced the immediate availability of Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure with Veeam PN (Powered Network). This new, on-demand turnkey solution ensures Business Continuity that is fast, easy to use, simple to deploy and affordable. It includes the new FREE product, Veeam PN, an easy to use, light-weight software defined networking (SDN) solution to eliminate complicated VPN installation and simplify network configuration to create the ultimate recovery site on Microsoft Azure.

Businesses depend on IT to have a plan in place to maintain operations when disaster strikes or outages occur. According to Gartner, "although there's no magic answer on how much impact downtime will have on your business, current industry surveys have shown that the average enterprise estimates an impact of approximately $5,600 for every minute of unplanned downtime in its primary computing environment." This adds up to over $300,000 per hour. Unfortunately, for many enterprises, backup and recovery contingencies are insufficient. For one thing, the cost of maintaining and supporting a remote recovery site for a mirrored system with duplicate hardware and software is prohibitive given the high capital expense. For another thing, backup and recovery is extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming.

SoftNAS, Inc., a cloud data platform company and leading software-defined NAS provider for the cloud, announced SoftNAS Cloud Essentials version 3.7, optimized for Veeam Availability Suite, is available this month. SoftNAS also announced the achievement of Veeam Ready Archive status, verifying performance for full and synthetic full cloud-backup jobs using SoftNAS Cloud Essentials. SoftNAS and Veeam customers now have access to cost-effective multi-cloud storage options, while simultaneously improving RTPO (recovery time and point objectives) for data archival, backup and storage jobs. This partnership underscores SoftNAS' innovation as a truly cloud-native, 100% software-defined cloud data platform for enterprise control of any data, any cloud, anywhere.

Enterprises continue to struggle with managing vast amounts of data, including backups. Research conducted by The Taneja Group, found that 41 percent of planned public cloud workloads target backups. Cloud backup is one of the fastest growing technologies being adopted. According to Gartner's Hype Cycle for Storage Technology, 2017, "backup of data generated natively in public cloud is an emerging requirement as cloud providers only offer infrastructure high availability and disaster recovery, but are not responsible for application or user data loss."

Backup and Sync from Google: Fight Ransomware Risk with Cloud Computing

Grazed from 1RedDrop. Author: Shudeep Chandrasekhar.

Google today launched a much-anticipated desktop app called Backup and Sync. Not one to mince words, the company is encouraging users to sync whatever media they have on their local systems to a location in the cloud. Essentially, it’s going to act as a replacement for older Drive client applications, as well as for the older Photos app.

The tool will be mindful of any existing settings you have on your Mac or PC for backups, but you can basically sign into your Google account and specify which folders need to be backed up regularly to Google Cloud. Not only does Backup and Sync keep your desktop backed up at all times, but it can also access and sync data from external memory devices like USB sticks, hard drives, cameras and SD cards...
