Use cases

  • Cloud backup & archive
    • Backups are independent copies of your data volumes used for archive and recovery purposes.
    • Backups are stored on cloud object storage which is separated from primary volumes to meet data protection requirements.
    • Incremental forever, block-based backups, making it a perfect solution for large NAS data sets.
    • Backups are offsite, satisfies 3-2-1 backup strategy.
  • Disaster recovery
    • Separate location from primary data (object storage).
    • Recoverable to Cloud Volumes ONTAP in region.
  • Ransomware protection
    • Backups are read only and immutable.
    • Protect against cyberattacks, Insider threats and Accidental deletion.
  • Modernization
    • Replace legacy tape solutions.
