IRON MOUNTAIN


Iron Mountain Backup Appliances (BA)

 

BACKUP APPLIANCES (BA) ARE A WAY FOR BUSINESSES OF ALL SIZES TO GET COMPREHENSIVE PROTECTION AGAINST DOWNTIME.THEY’RE EASY TO USE AND INEXPENSIVE TO SCALE. IT’S BIG POWER AT AN ATTRACTIVE PRICE POINT. VIRTUAL BA AWARD-WINNING CORE TECHNOLOGIES, SERVICE, AND SUPPORT FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE ON HYPERVISORS, PROTECTING BOTH VIRTUAL AND PHYSICAL SERVERS.

 

CLOUD DISASTER RECOVER (CDR)

Utilise Hybrid Cloud technology to improve redundancy and give users greater protection of your systems and data. CDR is simple in concept yet robust in feature set; it leverages the advantages of local backup and the security of the cloud.

It starts with workstations and servers protecting data locally across the Local Area Network (LAN) to the BA. From there it is automatically transmitted to the secure cloud. This technology improves fault tolerance while reducing the reliance on bandwidth speed. The local BA can act as estore hubs for everything from files to application and system fail over. They can also act as staging environments for off-site transfers. Scheduling off-site data transfers can be critical for bandwidth management and carries no risk of having unsaved backups. In addition, should the local device be compromised data that was transferred to the cloud can act as a replica site for your business. A local only backup option cannot ensure data integrity should a site wide disaster occur.

 

IMAGE-BASED BACKUP

BA use image-based backup technology to take complete pictures of the workstations or servers. Advantages include quick full system restores, easy recovery of individual files, bare metal restores (BMR) capability, and the ability to boot individual backups as virtual machines.

HYBRID VIRTUALISATION

BA bring the power and flexibility of local virtualisation to small businesses. Hybrid Virtualisation technology initialises a virtual machine (VM) in the secure Cloud, then automatically connects to the local network through the BA on-site using a secure VPN tunnel.

SCREENSHOT BACKUP VERIFICATION

No more guessing if your backup is working properly. BA boot backups as virtual machines, capturing an image of the login page to give you visual proof that your data has been successfully backed up. An industry first.

INSTANT OFF-SITE VIRTUALISATION

BA protect you from site-wide outages using instant off-site virtualisation. In the event of a local disaster such as a fire or flood, the entire network can be recreated in the secure cloud in a matter of minutes. Secure connections are provided to employees and business can resume normal operations.

PHYSICAL AND VIRTUAL PLATFORMS

Our Intelligent Business Continuity solutions can be purchased as a virtual appliance to support a virtual infrastructure in addition to our physical hardware. BA support VMware, Hyper-V, and XenServer.

INVERSE CHAIN TECHNOLOGY

Inverse Chain Technology eliminates the problem of broken backup chains – the place where most issues arise in the backup process. Each time a backup occurs data is saved in a universal virtual file format (VMDK). These backups are not dependent on previous snapshots, giving you the freedom to change retention and delete snapshots without resetting the chain or having to take a new base image. Since each backup is a fully bootable virtual machine, there is no need for complex, time-consuming conversion processes before performing a restore. Data is always available immediately, both on and off-site, for near-instantaneous recovery and virtualisation.

OFF-SITE FILE RESTORE

Brand new for BA come Off-Site File Restore. Now, no matter where you are, you can recover files and folders from any protected server or workstation, from any point in time. The intuitive, familiar portal now features a simple, powerful utility for browsing the complete file structure for any recovery point. Even better, you can perform searches to find exactly what you need.

PSA AND RMM INTEGRATION

BA were designed from the ground up to integrate seamlessly with the remote monitoring and management (RMM) and professional services automation (PSA) tools that are the lifeblood of a managed services practise. BA are easily connected with ConnectWise, Autotask, Kaseya and AVG Managed Workplace. Keep tabs on your fleet, set up alerts and notifications,
and track billing and setup across your client base. All of this means less time spent on technology and more time invested in growing your business.

EASY USER MANAGEMENT

Do you have more than one site or device? You can easily manage all your appliances, including your CDR service with Iron Mountain cloud portal. From recovering a single file to an entire site to viewing backup status, Iron Mountain cloud portal gives you complete visibility and control of your information.

INSTANT LOCAL VIRTUALISATION

Should a you experience a server failure, the system can be virtualised instantly on the device. The advanced web interface allows for configuration of CPU and memory resources. Networking resources can also be configured dynamically, allowing for changes to be made without restarting the virtual machine. With the system now virtualised, the business can operate “business as usual” until it has the time to fix its server issue, without compromising any data or incurring any downtime.

INSTANT OFF-SITE VIRTUALISATION

BDRA protect you from site-wide outages using instant off-site virtualisation.

END-TO-END ENCRYPTION

All data is protected by AES-256 encryption both in transit and in the cloud. Additionally, you have the option to encrypt data locally, and passphrases can be specified per appliance or per protected machine to meet compliance regulations.

BACKUP INSIGHTS
