Being a major name in cloud infrastructure, it’s not surprising that Artisan Infrastructure (News - Alert) is continually focused on enhancing the speed and availability of its services. In December, for example, the company introduced VMware vCenter Server support to its IT Continuity Engine. Now, Artisan has introduced Neverfail HybriStor data protection appliances through its network of channel partners.
This brand new solution addresses limitations of capacity, performance and interoperability in competing offerings with nearly unlimited capacity expansion, scalable performance, instant local/remote recovery, and a multi-vendor architecture. This vendor-agnostic approach relies on open standards for connecting to most backup and archive applications using an NFS or CIFS mount. As for security, this high performance, cloud-scale product offers AES 256-bit encryption to meet the most demanding compliance requirements.
"HybriStor takes performance, capacity, and ease-of-use to the next level, delivering an industry-leading secondary storage solution that rivals any in the industry," said Chin Kuo, SVP of Continuity Solutions, Artisan Infrastructure. "The solution overcomes one of the biggest obstacles in object storage—performance. By removing this barrier, HybriStor is set to become the new standard in backup and archive storage at a price point that is equally compelling."
HybriStor is a next generation data protection solution complete with purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) capabilities designed to meet the most rigorous data recovery requirements of businesses for recovery point objectives (RPOs) and rapid recovery time objectives (RTOs). With its nearly unlimited scalability, HybriStor answers the problem of explosive data growth in the enterprise that has so far slowed legacy solutions to a crawl.
The HybriStor appliance can be connected locally to direct-attached storage (DAS) or object storage for unprecedented RPO and RTO performance. The ability to connect to object storage also results in significant cost reduction compared to traditional tape or disk alternatives, along with enormous scalability for massive data vaults and long-term data retention for more reliable recovery.
The Neverfail HybriStor data protection virtual appliance is available with up to 100TB of free managed capacity.
