Enterprise Data Protection Migration to Cloud

data-center-to-cloudCIOs are exasperated with vendor proliferation, point solutions, lack of enterprise visibility and the complexity involved with moving to cloud service provisioning! Whether it’s moving your ERP to a workday cloud, or your customer relations management (CRM) to Salesforce.com, the promised payback is powerful—lower administrative costs, enterprise management and reporting, single-vendor interface, consumption on demand, and unlimited ability to scale!

Cobalt Iron has delivered on these promises for data protection. Our Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) software enables enterprises to migrate their existing backup management islands to a single enterprise-rich data protection application which leverages the key benefits of cloud compute and storage resources: pay as you grow, offsite DR, single management and alerting platform, and low cost.

Unlike the small and mid-sized business (SMB) vendors focused on the home or small business data protection services, Cobalt Iron is designed for the enterprise. Our Mosaic architecture assumes that the enterprise has multiple vendor solutions installed delivering stove-pipe SLAs for the business. It is this mosaic of solutions that is enveloped by Cobalt Iron’s ADP software and moves you towards a cloud-based enterprise data protection solution.

Cobalt Iron builds on your existing infrastructure, unlike the ‘box du jour’ solutions that require a rip and replace approach. Whether you have TSM or Networker, ProtectTier or Data Domain, Oracle or Quantum tape, ADP software leverages the resources in place until their financial life can be terminated in favor of common off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware or cloud resources.

Our ability to migrate your enterprise to a cloud model revolves around the following capabilities:

  • Deploy less backup application software
  • Leverage existing hardware until end of life
  • Centralize the management, performance and reporting of SLAs
  • Leverage cloud infrastructure for compute and storage
  • Constantly identify change and alert or act
  • Provide charge-back and departmental budget insights
  • Enable self-recovery where appropriate
