Artisan Debuts Neverfail HybriStor Data Protection Appliance
The data protection appliances are designed to offer nearly unlimited capacity expansion, scalable performance and instant local/remote recovery.Cloud infrastructure specialist Artisan introduced Neverfail HybriStor data protection appliances, which are designed to offer nearly unlimited capacity expansion, scalable performance, instant local/remote recovery and a multi-vendor architecture. The vendor-agnostic approach uses open standards for connecting to most backup and archive applications using a Network File System (NFS) or Common Internet File System (CIFS) mount, and the cloud-scale product also delivers AES 256-bit encryption for data security in-flight to meet compliance requirements, according to Artisan, whose offerings are available exclusively through the channel. "Data is the lifeblood of nearly every business today, from retail to banking to manufacturing, so protecting that data and ensuring that it's always available is imperative to their success," Larry Hart, senior vice president of cloud solutions and strategic alliances at Artisan, told eWEEK. "Many different metrics have been developed for the survivability of businesses after they lose data. Regardless of which metric you believe, they all have the same conclusion. Businesses that lose data either close completely or sustain massive setbacks to their competitiveness." HybriStor is a next-generation data protection solution with purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) capabilities that meet the rigorous data recovery requirements of businesses for recovery point objectives (RPOs) and rapid recovery time objectives (RTOs).
The Neverfail HybriStor data protection virtual appliance provides customers with up to 100TB of free managed capacity, with an assumed deduplication ratio of 10-to-1 and up to 10TB of managed capacity per node.
