Home — PartnersNetApp — NetApp Cloud Backup

Modernize your backup and archive, replacing traditional tape backup with a cloud-integrated solution. Reduce your risk of data loss. Recover from anywhere. Lower your costs compared to traditional methods. Leverage your existing backup software investments. NetApp Cloud Backup AltaVault cloud-integrated storage enables you to securely backup data to any cloud — at up to 90% lower cost compared with on-premises solutions. Leverage flexible deployment and scale. NetApp Cloud Backup AltaVault appliances start as small as 2TB and scale up to 57PB of protected data in the cloud — making AltaVault one of the most scalable cloud-integrated storage products on the market. New SnapMirror integration expands the Data Fabric by adding Snapshot-based replication between an ONTAP device and AltaVault — enabling long-term retention in the cloud. Legacy approaches to backup, such as tape libraries, can be costly and time-consuming to operate, resulting in unnecessary operational delays for IT organizations with requirements to keep data online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

According to research by ESG, backup and recovery are among the top five IT spending priorities for 2016 and the number-one use case for cloud deployments. The cloud is an ideal location for backup archive of tier 2 and tier 3 data, such as file shares and home directories. NetApp offers a comprehensive cloud-integrated data protection solution for NAS file services built on NetApp Cloud Backup ONTAP combined with AltaVault cloud-integrated storage. This solution delivers end-to-end array-based backup and recovery for data created on premises with efficient backup to the cloud. With flexible configurations, including NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF) or FAS as primary and optional FAS secondary storage, you can deploy cloud backup within your current environment or a new deployment. NetApp Cloud Backup Snapshot technology creates fast, space-efficient virtual copies and recovery points of local data on any storage system powered by ONTAP with support for up to hundreds of Snapshot copies per volume.

NetApp Cloud Backup Flexible Deployment

NetApp AltaVault cloud-integrated storage enables customers to securely backup data to any cloud at up to 90% lower cost compared with on-premises solutions. AltaVault gives customers the power to tap into cloud economics while preserving investments in existing backup infrastructure and meeting backup and recovery SLAs. AltaVault physical appliances are among the industry’s most scalable cloud-integrated storage appliances, with capacities ranging from 32TB up to 384TB of usable local cache. Enterprises often deploy AltaVault physical appliances in their data centers to protect large volumes of data. These datasets typically require the highest levels of performance and scalability available. NetApp AltaVault physical appliances are built on a scalable and efficient hardware platform that is optimized to reduce data footprints and rapidly stream data to the cloud. AltaVault virtual appliances are an ideal solution for medium-sized businesses that want to get started with cloud backup.

NetApp Data Fabric Solution For Cloud Backup

AFF All-Flash

Designed specifically for Flash, the AFF A series All-Flash systems deliver industry-leading performance, capacity density, scalability, security, and network connectivity in dense form factors. With the addition of a new entry-level system, the new AFF A series family extends enterprise-grade Flash to midsize businesses and to fit any budget. At up to 7M IOPS per cluster with sub millisecond latency, they are the fastest All-Flash arrays built on a true unified scale-out architecture. The AFF A series allows customers to complete twice the work at half the latency as compared with the previous generation of AFF systems.

As the industry’s first All-Flash arrays to provide both 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) and 32Gb Fibre Channel connectivity, AFF A series systems eliminate the bandwidth bottlenecks that are increasingly moved to network from storage as Flash gets faster and faster. NetApp has been leading the All-Flash storage innovations with the latest SSD technologies. As the first All-Flash array to support 15TB SSDs, AFF systems, with the introduction of the A series, also become the first to use MSW SSDs, which further increase the usable capacity of SSDs significantly
