Online Backup Leader BluPointe DRS Announces the Addition of its Secure Data Archiving Product

June 15, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
BluPointe DRS, a leader in online backup for managed service providers (MSPs), data centers, and businesses today announced its archiving product, designed to help businesses fill a much needed gap in their data protection plan by securing data that must be stored for extended periods of time.

BluPointe's archiving program offers the ability to keep files longer than a general backup at a much lower cost, and simplifies retrieving data when it's needed. Now companies can archive by type, age, size, subject or author from anywhere, from an on-site environment to a public or private storage cloud destination, effortlessly, and with unprecedented security and ease of use.

BluPointe's archiving product works hand-in-hand with its data backup products or as a stand- alone for end users. It works as a traditional archiving product locally, through the Internet, or through a public or private cloud, allowing users to create policies for maintaining active files on high-performance storage while moving less active files to archive storage. BluPointe's archive platform is configured, accessed, and managed as easily as data in BluPointe's virtual storage pools.

Archiving is a fast growing component of data storage, as MSPs and end users reevaluate existing data storage infrastructure to support their operational applications. The overall growth rate of unstructured data is expected to reach 60-percent through 2014. This growth is fueled by digitization of content in industries such as healthcare, media/entertainment and government, and by regulatory requirements to store data for extended periods of time, often in multiple copies. More and more companies today are wasting no time in determining how best to leverage all the data they collect, not only to automate business decisions, but to keep up with regulatory legislation already in place and to plan ahead for future regulation.

To successfully manage its data, a business must size and build a scalable, cost effective data backup infrastructure that includes a secure and highly available archiving platform that is interoperable among distinct systems.

Starting as low as $100 monthly, BluPointe's archiving program offers unprecedented ROI, and the cost savings begins immediately. Once migration is complete, free space is available instantly on the user's primary on-site storage. Data in the low-cost cloud archiving environment is highly secure, and users can transparently access any data quickly and efficiently.

BluPointe's archiving capabilities dramatically enhance data and storage management, diminish compliance and regulatory risks, and reduce storage costs while providing a comprehensive object-based secondary storage platform, allowing MSPs and end users to control and manage the backend of on-site storage targets through the creation of heterogeneous cloud storage pools, where file and data objects are archived. BluPointe's archiving storage pools are vendor and hardware agnostic, and work with all types and brands of storage.

At the heart of BluPointe's archiving platform is an array of security features, all fully applicable for storage deployments. BluPointe also applies a number of other security measures, like role-based access integration, multiple BluPointe administrator security levels, and the application of unique digital signatures for every object, combined with AES 256 crytophograhic data integrity ensure your data integrity and security is our top priority.

This is the perfect add on product for existing MSPs, as it allows them to fill a niche where customers want to archive data without paying the high cost of backup. At a rate of five- to seven-cents per GB, it is highly cost effective for long term storage, while ensuring data security.
