Introducing Cloud Backup/Restore and DR Options using Object Storage with Erasure Coding

Any NonStop customer would appreciate saving 40% or more in data backup and archive costs while simultaneously increasing data security, avaiability and backup/restore performance, right?

It’s no secret, the need to backup, replicate and recover data has become a prioritized concern in NonStop core sectors such as telecom, healthcare and financial services, in fact, this is true across all enterprises. Over a span of six decades, storage and backup technologies have had an evolutionary progress; one that has traversed all the way from the original reel-to-reel tape of the 1950’s, through tape cartridges, library/silo automation, then disk drives, solid state disk, and ultimately, to breakthrough technologies like today’s data deduplication and object storage, both of which massively reduce data redundancy and overheads.

Yet, data storage, by being a long-term strategy and investment, has made it difficult and usually expensive for CIOs to embrace newer technologies and systems, especially at a time when enterprises are witnessing unprecedented growth data generation and retention. Consequently, many enterprises still rely upon legacy applications running on NonStop mission-critical servers with legacy data backup devices. After decades of innovation from many server manufacturers, there hasn’t been a cost-effective alternative to NonStop and the reluctance from enterprises to simply swap out NonStop is understandable.

Nonetheless, it is important for these enterprises to reduce their ‘long-term’ data backup and archival expense by leveraging low cost advanced technologies available today, such as Cloud Object Storage, which has the proven capability to economically accommodate Petabyte-scale data backup and long-term retention. It is this brewing need that Tributary Systems has pinpointed; providing a wide array of solutions that pertain to both traditional and modern approach data backup, replication, protection, and recovery across all cloud and legacy NonStop platforms.

We’d all agree that NonStop data is the most mission-critical and valuable data in any enterprise, but Public cloud options such as AWS, Azure, and Google are not the best options for NonStop, where security, visibility, and ownership are major concerns. This may change in the future but with what is available today from the NonStop team makes the product offerings from Tributary Systems a sound investment that will continue to provide value to the enterprise no matter what path the NonStop team elects to go down.
