The backup service featuring third-party solutions allows you to effectively use NGN Cloud object storage to store critical information and protect enterprise data from being lost.
You can benefit from the offered backup solutions or deploy your own software both in NGN Cloud and on-premise, while storing data in our object storage. All major vendor solutions have been tested and are supported: Veritas NetBackup и Backup Exec, Commvault, Veeam, Dell EMC DataDomain, HPE StoreOnce.
Thanks to scalability, you can store any amounts of data in NGN Cloud and flexibly configure the backup system depending on your current needs. One bucket in object storage can store up to 1 PB of raw data (without deduplication).
cloud infrastructure backup to independent object storage;
local infrastructure backup to NGN Cloud via a dedicated channel or public network;
using the object storage of NGN Cloud to store backups outside your office by the rule 3-2-1 separately.
Depending on your tasks, the following agent-based solutions can be used.
Standard backup solution#
Standard backup solution is based on CloudBerry Backup, an affordable and secure software compatible with all common platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Hyper-V, and VMware.
CloudBerry Backup supports local backups and cloud storage services such as NGN Cloud, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Backblaze B2, Wasabi, and Google Cloud Storage. This solution is good to protect endpoints and servers against failure.
In the case of CloudBerry Backup, the backup process consists of several steps:
checking a license for a specific virtual machine;
checking whether the agent version is up-to-date (and updating it if necessary);
scanning the file system;
To learn more about CloudBerry Backup, visit the official webpage or contact a NGN Cloud Services manager.
The cost of CloudBerry-based backup service consists of two components: monthly license fee charged according to the number of secured virtual machines and the required space in the NGN Cloud object storage.
Enterprise backup solution#
The enterprise-grade backup solution is cloud-optimized and is compatible with all popular hypervisors. In addition, it can back up virtually all data and any infrastructures from Exchange, Oracle and SQL to MongoDB, MySQL and Hadoop.
The data storage solution is based on a proven deduplication technology that can reduce the backup size by up to 25 times and thus lower its storage and transmission costs.
The subscription-based backup service can be used in several scenarios:
to back up data already hosted in NGN Cloud;
to create a backup site in NGN Cloud or as a part of a multi-cloud infrastructure, which includes IaaS, HaaS, and on-premise resources.
The enterprise-grade backup service is charged by consumption for the terabytes under protection and the space occupied by backups in object storage.
