When our business Sempre Technologies started we took the opportunity to utilize cloud services for a lot of our business applications.
We still had critical data held locally which required to be protected by daily/hourly backup cycles.
Utilising NetWorker and Data Domain, this gave us very good local backup capabilities. For offsite long-term protection we chose to utilize the new EMC CloudBoost appliance.
CloudBoost is supported with the following providers:
We clone our savesets encrypted currently to Amazon as the target.
Our dedup rate is improving with more backup cycles, currently sitting at 4.45:1
Throughput for a particular saveset shown below:
Multiple clone sessions are supported.
The CloudBoost appliance is currently available as a virtual edition, hardware versions of these appliances will become available soon. You can have local storage configured for caching.
We utilise Zerto for our DR strategy.
