Did you hear? In recent months, NetApp AltaVault cloud-integrated storage was recognized for three awards!
First, Technology Marketing Corporation announced AltaVault as a winner of the 2016 Cloud Computing Magazine Backup and Disaster Recovery Award. This award recognizes technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions empowering businesses to remain active and productive, under even the most challenging conditions, minimizing lost business opportunities. Purpose built specifically for backup, AltaVault gives you the power to tap into cloud economics while preserving investments in your existing backup infrastructure, and meet your backup and recovery SLAs. AltaVault improves recoverability because 95% of restores occur from the local cache. Additionally, you can quickly spin up an AltaVault cloud-based appliance in the event of a disaster and recover your vital data quickly.
The second award recognized AltaVault as a finalist in the 2016-17 Best Hybrid Cloud Solution category for The Cloud Awards. The Cloud Awards program celebrates the brightest and the best in Cloud Computing. Open to organizations across the globe, The Cloud Awards is the first and largest recognition platform of its kind. Latency, security and reliability in a real-world solution are chief considerations for the Best Hybrid Cloud Solution award, where a pragmatic approach to cloud services is sought. A primary concern for organizations first moving to the cloud is the ability to keep their data safe. NetApp understands the need to maintain data integrity and a high level of security, which is why AltaVault is designed to keep data encrypted and secure at all times, and with role-based access controls you can confirm that only qualified employees can access your data. If you are looking for a cloud backup solution and need to meet stringent security requirements, this is a great reason to take a look at AltaVault.
The third award recognized AltaVault as a finalist in the Data Backup Hardware category for Storage Magazine and SearchStorage 2016 Products of the Year. Finalists in this category include appliances with sophisticated software integrated, and systems for disaster recovery. These data backup hardware finalists represent modern data protection, encompassing data on-premises, at disaster recovery sites, and in public and private clouds. AltaVault appliances have an open ecosystem, enabling you to leverage your existing backup software and select from over twenty-five public and private clouds to store your data. With every release, AltaVault unveils new partnerships (or integrations) to offer you more choice and flexibility in how you back up your data to the cloud.
