Many AWS customers begin their journey to the cloud by implementing a
backup and recovery discipline.
Because the cloud can provide any desired amount of durable storage that is
both secured and cost-effective, organizations of all shapes and sizes
are using it to support robust backup and recovery models that eliminate the need
for on-premises infrastructure.
Our friends at Riverbed have launched an
promotion for AWS customers. This promotion is designed to help
qualified enterprise, mid-market, and SMB customers in North America
to kick-start their cloud-storage projects by applying for up to 8
TB of free Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) usage for six months.
If you qualify for the promotion, you will be invited to download the Riverbed
software appliance (you will also receive enough AWS credits to
allow you to store 8 TB of data per month for six months). With advanced
compression, deduplication, network acceleration and encryption
features, SteelStore will provide you with enterprise-class levels
of performance, availability, data security, and data
durability. All data is encrypted using AES-256 before leaving your
premises; this gives you protection in transit and at
rest. SteelStore intelligently caches up to 2 TB of recent backups
locally for rapid restoration.
The SteelStore appliance is easy to implement! You can be up and running
in a matter of minutes with the implementation guide, getting started guide, and user guide
that you will receive as part of your download. The appliance is compatible with
over 85% of the backup products on the market, including solutions from
CA, CommVault, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, Symantec, and Veeam.
