Riverbed Whitewater. Riverbed Steelstore. It’s bigger. It’s updated. It’s been supercharged! It’s the Netapp AltaVault! Learn how this can cloudify your backups, and reduce costs too!
Hey, you got a small Netapp? Hey, ya wanna do some backups to Amazon S3 or a compatible object storage system (aka Netapp StorageGrid Webscale)? NCE is for you!
The official blurb on it:
NDMP Cloud Extension Software (NCE) is a host-based utility that transfers data between Data ONTAP® storage systems and the Amazon® Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) cloud. You can transfer data to Amazon S3 by using the ndmpcopy command. The ndmpcopy command is executed from a Linux host, which communicates with the storage system to transfer data to Amazon S3. Data transfer is supported at the volume, qtree, directory, or file level.
I just wanted to share a cool bit of information about what one of our Riverbed Whitewater customers is getting as backup to disk and automatic redundancy to “the cloud”. This customer is using Backup Exec 2012, with the Whitewater appliance as a backup datastore.
This customer is storing 66.7 TB of stored data in 4TB of physical and cloud space and will be saving more than $7,000/month with cloud backups because of it!
