Secondary backup for Rubrik – the final component of zero trust data security.
It is becoming increasing important for companies to protect data against cyber threats. If your data is totally secure your business should be unstoppable. Having a secure zero-trust data management system such as Rubrik backup is fundamental to achieving this goal, however no system is entirely failsafe. Cybercriminals know the importance of backup files and will target them as a primary goal. Regardless of your security infrastructure resilience, it only takes one configuration error, or a lapse of installation best practices to render your backups vulnerable to attack. Implementing a secondary backup solution is vital to providing the security required for your business to become truly unstoppable.
Resilient secondary backup & archive from Cristie Data.
Cristie has a range of secondary backup services as part of the READY initiative that not only provide secondary protection for backups, but also offer backup and archive for onsite, cloud and SaaS service data within a highly secure, sustainable, and cost effective OPEX based model. A core component of the READY initiative is our Green S3 Cloud and S3 Archival Gateway which combines the robust security features of the S3 protocol, such as “S3 Secret Buckets”, with backup of object data directly to air-gapped tape via S3.
S3 Cloud integration optimized for Rubrik customers.
An archive requires special technical considerations to ensure that the archived data remains available as quickly as possible and always remains “in sync” with the Rubrik data set. Cristie as a Rubrik Elite Partner offers its customers the opportunity to implement an individually tailored and cost-saving solution based on Cristie’s Shared Rubrik infrastructure in the Green S3 Cloud.
Is your cold data burning a hole in your pocket and the ozone layer?
The use of tape as a secondary backup target is becoming increasing important due to the need for air-gapped immutability, but it is also a key solution to the energy demands that massive data growth is placing on data centers worldwide. The Cristie S3 Archival Gateway provides a scalable, high-performance, object storage solution for storing huge amounts of data directly to tape media via S3. Tape is a far more energy efficient storage media for archival or cold data than powered hard drives and should form part of any hierarchical storage management system (HSM) that can identify and migrate infrequently accessed data. In additional our S3 Glacier storage class automatically provides low-cost storage for long-term archival data.
How green is your S3?
S3 is no different to any other data center storage service in terms of power consumption and consequent CO2 emissions. Cristie Data has tackled this problem through the innovative data center deployment of our managed servers and storage which are hosted directly within wind turbines and powered by renewable energy at source. These German data centers operated in conjunction with our technology partner windCORES also meet the highest standards of availability, data protection and cost efficiency.
Become CO2 Neutral Now & Save Costs.
The Cristie Green S3 Cloud Service is completely climate neutral. More than 90 percent of the energy requirement is fed in directly by the wind turbine and supplemented by 100 percent green electricity. Since the electricity is consumed where it is generated, there are no expensive transport routes, and the electricity cost advantage can be passed on by the energy producer.
Secure by default and by design.
Our Green S3 wind farm data centers deploy redundant power connections and are served by independent network operators for connectivity redundancy. Real-time monitoring with camera surveillance and German security standards ensures maximum availability and reliability. We make use of the existing weatherproof buildings which by default provide protection against fire, EMC interference and external access. These physical aspects provide an unrivalled secure environment for the zero-trust data protection services we offer as part of our Green S3 Cloud solution.
