SwiftStack for Backup & Recovery

Drastically simplify your data protection strategy with cloud storage

Eliminate storage silos and complex disaster recovery services by adopting private cloud storage that better leverages your existing data center resources. SwiftStack will help optimize your data protection strategy by allowing all of your vital business data to be protected while driving out unnecessary costs.

Traditional Storage Vs SwiftStack Cloud Storage

Scale without limits

Scale without limits

Traditional storage does not scale, so as you protect more data, it often requires more siloed storage systems, increasing management overhead. With SwiftStack, you can start small and scale to many petabytes. Next time you’re adding another backup server, use private cloud storage as a target instead of traditional arrays to have a single storage target instead of many.

Capacity and performance can be scaled independently, ensuring your storage cloud is tuned to your needs at all times without overprovisioning.

Automatic offsite protection

Instead of staging backup data to disk and then to tape so it can be hauled off to the mountain, eliminate tape by distributing cloud storage across multiple sites in your own environment. With geo-replication built into SwiftStack, once nodes are located in multiple sites, policies state how your data should be protected and where it should be located. If you do not have access to a secondary site, SwiftStack can synchronize your backup data to Amazon S3 using the Cloud Sync feature.

Since data in cloud storage is under a global namespace, restores can automatically occur from any site, eliminating the need to move data from one system to another before the recovery can occur.

Significantly lower cost hardware

Significantly lower cost hardware

SwiftStack is truly software-defined storage. SwiftStack software runs on standard servers running standard Linux. Often, the servers you would use for SwiftStack are ones you’re already buying for other uses. Nodes in a SwiftStack cluster can be non-like, allowing you to start with one type of server and scale with another. You’re not locked into a small selection of hardware appliances, giving you the power to use what’s necessary to optimally protect your data.

Since you are allowed to choose hardware that best meets your needs, that means you also get to unchain yourself from the drive tax. For backup storage, cost of drives makes up the highest percentage cost of the overall solution. Now that most servers can be procured without drives, you can now eliminate unnecessary cost and utilize the latest in disk drive innovations.

“After pointing our backups to SwiftStack, we have seen big improvements in cost, performance and offsite protection. Our new backup storage tier also enables us to consolidate hundreds of Terabytes of user file shares, which will also be protected by the multi-site replication offered by SwiftStack."
