Infrascale, a provider of cloud-managed data protection, has released its Infrascale Cloud Backup Accelerator. The all-in-one solution draws inspiration from four emerging technologies – direct-to-cloud backup products, integrated purpose-built backup appliances, WAN acceleration solutions, and cloud storage gateways – to create a product that makes cloud backup and recovery five times faster.
“We wanted to create a fundamentally new approach to data protection that made it practical to back up and recover large datasets to and from the cloud, quickly and securely,” says Ken Shaw, CEO of Infrascale. “Effectively, we wanted to create the backup equivalent of a set-top box. A set-top box is a local appliance that connects your TV to the Internet and makes it possible to view a seemingly endless amount of online content. Similarly, the Cloud Backup Accelerator is a local device that enables businesses to back up their critical data and quickly stream it to the cloud for long-term storage and archiving.”
Infrascale Cloud Backup Accelerator offers:
- Infinite Capacity – IT administrators decide what mission-critical information stays local, based on custom policies, for fast recovery. Since the device is serving more as an intelligent cache, business data automatically spills over to the cloud without the worry of storage limits on the local device.
- Built-In WAN Acceleration – Infrascale’s integrated WAN acceleration and deduplication technologies reduce the transfer time and payload of copying data to the cloud. According to the company, this translates to 5X faster upload speeds and quicker recovery of lost critical data, the traditional drawback of cloud-based replication.
- Lower Cost – The Cloud Backup Accelerator boasts a lower price, up to 70 percent less compared to competing hybrid backup technologies, both in terms of the device and of cloud storage costs. Instead of buying a large backup appliance, customers can purchase a lean backup system with more cloud storage.
Infrascale’s Cloud Backup Accelerator is now available for purchase through select volume resellers and includes enterprise backup and recovery software, the accelerator hardware, three years of hardware and software support and updates, four terabytes of device storage, and one terabyte of cloud storage for one year.
