Securing Nutanix Infrastructure with Cloud Backup

Nutanix delivers hyper-converged infrastructure which can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. The infrastructures facilitates the deployment of Virtual Machines (VMs) using Hyper-V, VMware or Acropolis hypervisors. The solution is pretty good for enterprise storage requirements but it does not protect enterprise workloads from data loss. Without a reliable backup strategy, organizations risk their important data despite having setup enterprise-level infrastructures. That’s why enterprises should deploy cloud backup to make their workloads data loss-proof.

Deploying Cloud Backup for Nutanix Hyper-converged Infrastructure

Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure comes in two basic forms: on-premises infrastructure and cloud based infrastructure. Depending on the vendor, businesses can setup cloud backups for both kinds of infrastructures.

For the virtualization layer, Nutanix infrastructure can be setup with Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware or Acropolis hypervisors.

Data Protection: Where does mirroring end and backup begin?

Data mirroring, snapshots and backup are technologies geared for data protection and data loss prevention. The purpose is the same, therefore the question whether we need all of them is completely justified.

It is true that data mirroring, snapshots and backups have the same purpose but they are not the same thing. This article attempts to draw a differentiating line between these technologies and explain their integral role in an efficient and reliable data protection strategy.

Backup & Disaster Recovery: Necessary for the Enterprise

In the pursuit of efficiency and optimization, enterprises transcended the paper era and entered the digital era. The workspace is no longer the same anymore. Instead of a ton of office equipment, a single desktop computer and/or a laptop is more than enough. Utilization of digital equipment led to the generation and continuous growth of digital data; which in turn led to the requirements and innovation of data storage: on-premises at first and then enterprise cloud storage later.

Enterprise Cloud Storage: Empowering Productivity & Work Efficiency

By using cloud based storage, enterprises considerably improved productivity and increased work efficiency. Instead of a sequential workflow, the cloud facilitates parallel workflows. And with the cloud, accessibility is made simpler and faster. Instead of working from a single workstation, staff can operate without geographic limitations or time restrictions. This has enhanced the ways enterprises function and operate.

Continuous utilization of cloud environments has generated data lakes for enterprises. Due to the block level storage of the cloud, scalability is simplified and accommodating to the big data generated by industries. However, with the large amount of data and the enterprise reliance on this data; it becomes equally important to acquire capable and reliable means of backing up and recovering this data.

Understanding the Concept of Cloud Backup and Replication

IT industry has evolved a lot in a couple of years.  Cloud is really starting to gain attraction and a lot of companies have already moved their solutions to cloud. When we talk about  Cloud Backup Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure are the two great guns in the market and cloud connects to Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Cloud services for Backup and Replications

Cloud is quite a generic term, it can have a lot of more other services but among all of them backup is the most desired Service from the Clients. Stone Fly Clients can Backup their Virtual machines, they can recover Files but they also have the option available for replications and failover for the Customer’s Business Continuity.

Replication of Data can be very useful for their clients in case of disaster recovery, Although Customers can replicate their data in the private cloud only if they have 2 sites Available at a time, But alternate scenario could be that they can avail the opportunity of the Public Cloud from the Service Providers like Amazon AWS and Microsoft assure and cloud connect to Amazon AWS and cloud connect to Microsoft Azure. Service Providers have taken the time to Build Data centers put infrastructure inside of that and then manage those data centers and make it available to their Clients thus minimizing the overheads for the Customers.
