Enterprise Automation Tools: Cloud Backup Disaster Recovery Planning

Posted by Gerry Poe

cloud computingEnterprise Automation Cloud Backup for Local and Online Data Protection
Cloud Attached Storage combines a local storage appliance with cloud storage services, ideal for the data protection needs of your small or medium business.

  • Multi-level data protection - local and remote
  • Ultra fast initial backup
  • LAN-speed restore

Network Storage and File Sharing

Our appliances are full featured NAS devices, including file sharing, volume snapshots, RAID arrays, FTP server and more.

Automated, Transparent and Fast Online Backup

Configure online backup to run at off-hours, and determine how much of your bandwidth to allocate. Our backup protocol uses advanced compression and de-duplication techniques to ensure the most efficient use of bandwidth.

Restore your files Anywhere, Anytime

Access your online backups using a Web browser, and restore individual files or entire sets either directly to the Cloud Attached Storage appliance, or to any computer.

No Software Installation Required

The Cloud Attached Storage appliance includes all the required software to connect to cloud storage and backup directly. There's no need to install software agents on each desktop computer in your office. Lightweight managed agents are still included, in case you want to back up remote users or laptops.

Extensive security measures ensure your data is kept safe and private.

  • Redundancy: In our cloud datacenters your data is mirrored multiple times for redundancy.
  • Encryption: Your data is protected from unauthorized access as soon as it leaves your local network: We use the same AES-256 encryption used by major banks, with a secret key known only to you.
  • Physical Security: The cloud infrastructure we use is hosted in state-of-the-art datacenters that are guarded 24x7 and only allow access to authorized personnel.
  • SAS-70 Type II Certification: The Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) type II audit certifies that a service organization has had an in-depth audit of its controls. We only store your data in datacenters that have passed SAS-70 Type II Certification.

Where is my data stored?


Your files are stored locally on the hard drive attached to the appliance (C200 or CloudPlug), then backed up to our secure, redundant cloud storage datacenter.


Will I need to install anything on my computer to use the backup service?


No, the backup runs directly from the appliance and there’s no need to install anything on desktop PCs. For roaming laptops and remote workers, you still have the option to install a lightweight software agent.


Why should I use an appliance? Why not back up from my PC?


A single appliance backs up your entire network, removing the need for installing software on each PC in your network. Having a local appliance means LAN-speed local backup, and LAN-speed restore.

Since backup is performed directly from the appliance, it does not slow down your PCs, so you can continue to work as it happen. In addition to agentless backup, we also offer a lightweight, managed software agent, which you can optionally use if you wish to back up remote workers or roaming laptops.


Do I have to backup all my data to the cloud?


No. You may choose to backup terabytes of data locally, yet backup just gigabytes of your most critical data online. How much data you back up online is entirely up to you.


Is there any limit to the file type or file size that I can back up?


No, all file types and file sizes are supported.
