Gain Infrastructure Flexibility with Software Defined Data Protection (SDDP)

Posted by Zaid Rasid in Cloud Backup

For Service Providers, the costs and complexities that are associated with providing Backup as a Service (BaaS) and DisasterSDDP Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) are becoming directly impacted by increasing infrastructure costs. That is, it’s difficult to manage the costs and complexities if one is locked into expensive vendor-specific hardware and software. As a Service Provider, it’s difficult to justify your increased costs to your customers when you have to charge a premium because you run your data protection software on expensive, brand-name infrastructure. In this blog post, we will review the alternatives available for Service Providers to lower their infrastructure costs.

Introducing SDDP

Asigra Cloud Backup™ V13 runs on a wide variety of infrastructure, including open source systems. By giving Service Providers a virtually platform independent approach to providing secure, reliable data protection services across an entire organization--this is the ultimate flexibility in managing infrastructure costs while minimizing complexity.

Leverage FreeBSD and ZFS for Lower Infrastructure Costs

In the latest release of Asigra Cloud Backup, our DS-System back-end application, which manages data in the data center, is now capable of running on a number of different platforms, including FreeBSD Unix and the Zetabyte File System (ZFS) that comes bundled with FreeBSD. With FreeBSD and ZFS being open source, this eliminates license costs, enabling Service Providers to run applications on commodity hardware, giving them the flexibility to standardize on low cost physical servers and storage. In Q2 2015, Asigra will be accommodating the benefits of FreeBSD and ZFS by introducing an Asigra SDDP appliance that comes pre-configured and optimized for data protection workloads, and includes full support from Asigra’s world class 24x7 dedicated support team.
